A very interesting function on Word Press is to share the search terms that are bringing people to your blog. Now that I have been running my site for about a year, I have a pretty good number of visitors and some invaluable data.
This is the top list of people I have written about or mentioned on my blog this year and how busy Google has been in keeping tabs on them.
I don’t mention people very often, I must say. It’s usually a video edit that I have uploaded. But still, there is interesting insight here if nothing else…
So in 2012, the Top Traffic Generators to My Site were
1. Phil O’Sullivan from CNN (by far the most famous person I have featured according to these criteria!)
2. Iain Twine from Edelman
3. Julian Assange from Wikileaks
4. Stephen King (me!)
5. Paul Venn from TwoFour54 (only mentioned in one article)
6. Scott Hicks from Facebook
7. Nicola Gregson from Ketchum / MEPRA
8. Rebecca Hill from the IABC (not sure where I mentioned, and can’t find on the search)
Maybe too little information to be valuable, but insightful for me.
