When we launched TN, i made this point that we will keep our users updated about our progress. Many bloggers refrain from doing it but since we believe in mutual benefit of everyone, it will be good to share our success story with our readers. For this purpose, we created a special category titled “TechNama” where we track our performance with our readers. We wrote our first post when we had 100 blog posts and today i am writing another post since its been two months that we are here on the blogosphere.
I am proud to announce that TechNama beat all the expectations in the second month of its launch and we are really thankful to our readers for their trust and confidence in our abilities and for appreciating TechNama with their frequent visits. Below are the details.
Google PageRank for TechNama: 4
First of all our biggest achievement is that we got a Google PR of 3 in the first month of our launch. We were too excited about it when we suddenly noticed that our Google Page Rank has further improved to 4 from 3 in the second month of our launch. This is a very big achievement for any new blog site.
Total Number of Blog Posts: 181
A total of 81 quality posts were made at TN by our dedicated team members. This is 19 short of our monthly target of 100 posts. The total blog posts have reached 181.
Total Comments and Pingbacks: 315
A total of 214 comments and pingbacks were approved on TN
Total Unique Visitors: 43,214
Total unique visitors at TN is 43,214 as of June, 2009. This is approx 400% higher then our last month unique subscribers. We are expecting this growth to reduce in the coming month but still we expect the growth to be in triple figures.
Total Pageviews: 173,000
Total Pageviews at TN for the month of June, 2009 stands at approx 173,000. This is remarkably higher then our target of 130,000 for the month of June, 2009. The Pageviews have also shown an increase of 330% from the previous month. We expect it to grow in the coming months.
Traffic Source Overview:
Traffic source is always a very important indicator for any website. Below is the traffic sources for TN
# Search Engines 18 %
#Referring Sites 60 %
#Direct Traffic 21 %
# Other 1 %
The increase in traffic from referring sites show our authority. More and more sites have been referring to us and hence we are getting increased traffic. I must mention here that one of our post made to the Delicious Most Popular Page and stayed there for the whole week. That is one main reason the traffic from the referring sites showed such a remarkable increase. However, our focus is to increase the traffic from search engines and bring it to 30% in the coming months.
Average Time on Site: 1 min 55 sec
We have slightly missed our target of keeping the average time on site above 2 minutes. But still it is close to it and we will try to improve it in the coming months inshAllah.
Max Visiting Browser: Firefox
Firefox still remains the first choice of our readers. The second most used browser to visit TN is Internet Explorer and Google Chrome stands at third. I never expected Google Chrome to come to occupy the top three spot in such a short time.
Top Country by Number of Visitors: USA
USA tops the originating country of our readers. The second is UK and the third is Spain. The other five countries on the list are Canada, Vietnam, Hungry, France and India
Ads Revenue by TN: ???
As usual! Do you expect me to reveal this information? I will keep it private. Anyways, i must tell you that Google Adsense is our primary source of earning. We are still playing with Chitika and we also made our Customized Advertisement page beside applying for Technorati Media. The response is not very encouraging from other sources of advertisement. I must mention here that we got few offers from individuals and other websites who were interested to advertise on TechNama but the offered rates were very low and hence we rejected them. We are still not very much eager about customized ads revenues. Once we start getting adequate traffic, we will focus on this segment of ads revenue. Till then our primary focus is on increasing the Quality Blog Posts on TechNama.
Since this was the second month of our operations, this remarkable increase was very much expected. However, the growth percentages are expected to come down in the next few months. However, we will try to keep it growing till we don’t reach our goals. I will share just one component of our goals with our readers here i.e Total Unique Visitors of 150,000 per month. We will update our goals once this goal and the related goals are achieved.
Thanks to our team and our readers for their constant support. In case you have any questions or comment, please feel free to share it with us.
