Check Your Stats and Check Them Often

Far too often I see many sites preaching about stat-checking and how it is wasting ‘precious’ time and you can be doing much more valuable things with the time it takes you to check your stats.

I disagree.

I say, check your stats and check them often. As long as you’re not in the middle of doing work and you deliberately stop working just to check how many views your site had today, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with stat checking. What valuable time is wasted? It takes me about 10-15 seconds to pull up full earning and visitor stats for every website that I own. How? Just place links on your toolbar and you’ll be good to go.

If anything, you should start checking your stats more often than you do now. Low earnings and visitors will motivate you to work harder to achieve more; while, higher earning and visitor reports will tell you to keep doing what you’re doing as it’s obviously working.

Figure out the quickest way for you to pull up your stats and do it as often as you like. There really is no harm in seeing how well your work is paying off. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. In fact, I’m telling you to go check your blog’s stats now (and if you don’t have a blog, read this guide to get started.)

    You are right, stats tell everything important that we need to know, we can use our stats to help better our blog.

    I agree with you. Checking statistics should be at the very least a daily activity. I check my about three times a day. I want to know which posts and pages work for me and I want to see where traffic is coming from, so I can write for my audience. Without feedback, you will not improve.

    its crucial. not only that, it’s probably the most fun part. Seeing the blue painted on the different county and states. How long people stay, what pages they view. all important and fun.

    Good post. I’ve only recently started monetizing my blog about a month ago and am unfortunately only on Blogger. Last month I made $10. So far so good, but do you recommend that I move my blog to a domain?

    Whole-heartedly. Honestly, buying a domain costs as low as $6.95 per year. It just looks so much more professional to have a domain name rather than xxxx.blogspot.com
