It’s All About You

It has been seven months since I last shared some Tales of Two Cities readership fun facts so I figured it was time to do an update. As I mentioned before, I primarily use three audience tracking widgets, Site Meter, Google Analytics and Quantcast to get an idea of who is reading this stuff.

Since April, the number of you has grown from 14,000 visitors per month to about 19,000 per month. According to Google Analytics, 8,500 of you are unique. Not surprisingly, the top five places that you come from are Columbia, Ellicott City, Baltimore, Washington, DC and Laurel, in that order. Over 3,000 of you have stopped by here over 200 times.

According to Quantcast, 55% of you are male, are older (74% over 35), highly educated (46% bachelors’ degrees, 28% post grads) and generally well off with 35% of you making over $100 K.

Most of you like other HoCo blogs too. The top five referring sites for Tales of Two Cities are Google, HoCo Rising, The Sun, hocoblogs and Blogger. Back in April it was hocoblogs, HowChow, FreeMarket, HoCo Rising and Columbia Talk.

I also find it interesting to see what posts are the most popular with y’all. The current top five are Mr. Normans Nightmare, Acronym Angst, Morning Chill, HoCo by the Numbers and Texting While Driving & You.

Thanks to all of you for dropping by.
