How Do People Get Here?
Google dominates, with twice as many referrals as Twitter. After that comes Facebook, my own web page, and various flavors of Google (UK, Canada, etc.).
What's more interesting is a list of keywords that most often land people on my blog. The top:
- cognitive mobilization
- political knowledge and political participation
- titular colonicity
- cognitive mobilization definition
- in hell
- perceived knowledge
- hot place
- michelle bachmann
- what people know
A few years ago there was an infamous walkout at our student newspaper, The Red & Black. I wrote about it. A lot. As you can see below, my posts from that period in summer 2012 lead the way in terms of popularity.
Where Are Readers From?
It's no surprise that most of my audience is based in the U.S., but what may be surprising -- or disconcerting -- is that second place is owned by Russia and 5th place by Ukraine. See the list below:
- U.S. (81,156)
- Russia (5,488)
- Germany (4,205)
- U.K. (2,979)
- Ukraine (2,452)
Chrome is the leading browser, used by a third of my audience, followed by Firefox (26 percent) and Internet Explorer (22 percent). Windows computers make up 61 percent of my traffic.
I have no summary. This is a modest blog, one that rarely influences or informs or even entertains. And sometimes it does all three. It has migrated from being strictly about political media research to one that covers lots of different things, but beyond that there's little more you can say.
