I like stats. Here are some from 50WS in 2014.
Unique Visitors: 56,000+
Pages per Visit: 2.21
Time per Visit: 2:19
There were slightly fewer unique visitors than 2013, but more pageviews, more pages per visit, and longer average visits.
This tells me that there are more returning/regular readers now, which is great, and is more important than getting lots of brand new, one-time visitors.
Here’s to more growth in 2015!
