I started the New Santa Ana blog last year, on September 1. Through December we averaged less than two hundred visits a day. But the new year has seen a huge increase in our readership. We are now averaging closer to 300 visits a day,and over six thousand visits a month, as you can see in the graphic above, according to Sitemeter. Most blogs our size average only 140 visits a day, according to Google Analytics.
Blogs take time to develop an audience. We are lucky that we have a very popular sister blog, the Orange Juice, that has helped us build our audience. The Orange Juice is one of the top-rated political blogs in California. It was also the very first political blog here in Orange County. I started the Orange Juice in July, 2003 – back then we got less than 100 visits a day. Today the Orange Juice averages over 45,000 visitors a month!
We have added a lot of bloggers to our team here at the New Santa Ana blog, but there is always room for more. If you work with a non-profit or community organization, we want you on our team! That way you can post about the great things your non-profit or community organization is up to, here in Santa Ana. Click here to contact me if you are interested.
And now for a few more statistics:
- We have had over 72,000 page views since we started up in September of last year.
- 15,531 unique visitors have read our New Santa Ana blog.
