Learn how Painless Blog Analytics can help you!
Hi, I’m Sherry!
My goal here at Painless Blog Analytics is to help you understand what data about your blog that you should look at and how to get to that information easily.
You’ll learn what analytics you should look at depending on the goals you’ve set for your blog. I’ll explain what those numbers mean and give you suggestions on how to improve them.
In 2012, I started Cub Scout Ideas, a blog that helps Cub Scout parents and leaders by giving them ideas, tips, and suggestions. Since that time, I’ve learned a lot!
One area that fascinated me was my blog’s data from Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and affiliate tracking. I realized that I could use that information to help manage my blog better.
But I discovered that not all bloggers are fascinated by all that data. In fact, I realized that many bloggers only look at high-level numbers and don’t dive into the data. Some seasoned bloggers have told me they get so confused by the numbers that they don’t even bother looking at them.
Are you in that boat? If you are, I want to help!
How did I become an analytics “nerd?”
Before I became a blogger, I worked at a large auto insurance company for 17 years. I don’t know how much you know about the insurance industry, but there’s a lot of numbers!
I never really considered myself a numbers person, but when you work with product managers and analysts every day, some of that wears off on you. 🙂 I began to see how data could be used to help make business decisions. And I learned that “data” isn’t always numbers.
When I started my blog, I heard a lot of folks talk about tracking your numbers, but I didn’t really understand what you would do with that information. Over time, it began to make sense to me.
I hope by sharing what I’ve learned, you’ll be able to master this more quickly than I did.
