2012 was the first full calendar year for ExtranetEvolution on WordPress, and I have just been looking at my annual statistics from Google Analytics, and comparing the year’s traffic with that of 2011 (post). During the year, the blog delivered 82,936 page impressions (up over a third on the near-60k recorded in 2011), generated from 25,608 unique visitors (up from 23,746).
Peak day was 16 October, when I wrote about Aconex appointing a new US general manager and BuildQatarLive, though it is likely the spike was also partly stimulated by attention to 15 October posts on Newforma and Nexadyne.
As a blogger on narrow range of niche topics (SaaS collaboration, BIM, etc), this blog will never become a high-traffic site, but it has many hundreds of loyal readers (a third of traffic is from returning visitors) around the world. The top six countries were UK, US and Australia, India, Canada and Germany, and the top cities London, Melbourne and Sydney.
