Views, Visitors and Stats For Multiple Managed Blogs

Leave a comment

So you write blogs, make posts to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and maybe a few other select social sites.  Most of these sites are pretty clear on where the stats are. WordPress may not be so clear especially if you manage multiple blogs.  Let me enlighten you on where to find the said stats.  When you log into WordPress you are taken to what I’ll call your generic dashboard. shows the last few blogs you wrote.  At the top there is a navigation bar with two options.  My Sites and Stats.

Click on Stats:

wordpress nav bar

 

 

Now it will show you the stats for the last month for the THAT blog.  At the top right you should see a drop down box with the name of the blog for which the stats are being shown.

Using the drop down arrow, you can navigate to any of your other managed blogs to view the stats for these as well.  Wordpress automatically defaults to showing you the stats for Days.  If you want to see stats for weeks or months prior just click those options under the large date and time at the top of the page.

If you choose the Weeks option it will show you the last six months labelling every other week:

weeks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you choose the months option it will show you lifetime stats labeling every six months:

months

 

 

 

 

 

You are also able to see Views by country, top posts and pages, clicks, tags and categories referrers, search engine terms and a totals summary.  Stats should be one thing you look at often for blogs to see what resonates with your audience, which posts are popular and which ones were not.  You can use these figures to see where your low readership months are and adjust with content or another author’s work during times when you may want to fill in gaps.
