Blog Numbers sharing post – Round NINE!
September has come and gone and now is the time to share with you some numbers. I’ve been thinking for awhile now about reducing the number of ads and affiliate links on the site… what do you think about that? Is it a good idea? Seriously, let me know your honest opinion…
OKAY, SO HERE ARE THE GOOGLE ANALYTIC NUMBERS FOR September 2017.

Total number of Sessions within the date range. A session is the period time a user is actively engaged with your website, app, etc. All usage data (Screen Views, Events, Ecommerce, etc.) is associated with a session.

- SNAP (Social Networks Auto Poster): This plugin has been very helpful for sending out new posts automatically to not only Twitter. We configured the tweet to include a shortened URL from Rebrandly using the domain we purchased from GoDaddy and learned how to use UTM parameters to track website visits from these tweets.
- Disclaimer* Lest you think the Twitter account is mainly automated, each morning and evening we are active on Twitter and have been able to connect with some wonderful people this way.
Plans moving forward:
- I’m thinking about creating some additional videos to help with engagement. Has anyone else tried this with any success?
- What makes a tweet worth retweeting?
Okay, so this is the final September 2017 Twitter Summary.
- We averaged just under 2.5k tweet impressions each day
- The Top Tweet earned 1.2k Impressions; about the same as last month.
Well, that’s it for Twitter so far. Yikes! It’s almost as if we are going backwards!! So glad I am able to spend more time here now. Would you like to see another social platform numbers reporting like we do with Twitter? Let us know in the comments below.
