How many visits does your blog have?

Do you have a blog? What is it about and how much unique visits you get in an average day?

(Let's forget that visits can be a completely vanity metric for literally nothing.)

    I will share mine as well. I get on average 300+ uniques/day for my blog reported by Plausible. I can get much more if I am featured in newsletters which happen regularly.

      That's awesome, I have added your blog to my RSS reader, and I look forward to reading it.

    I have a personal blog where I post about my interests. Mostly astronomy, space, and Google. I get an average of 4-500 views per day.

      How long have you been blogging, and how consistently are you posting? Reaching 400-500 daily views is fantastic in my opinion.

        Thanks, I've been blogging since July 2019. In the early days I posted at least twice per week, now less frequently.

    I write on Medium, here's my blog and some stats:

    • Writes mostly about finance, personal finance, and a little bit of software engineering
    • Started my first post in March 2020
    • I write about once every week since October 2020
    • Average about 300-400 daily views today
    • About slightly over 10k views per month
    • I have ~20 posts now

    My tech blog receives between 11,000 and 12,000 visits per day.

      I guess the daily updates makes a huge difference in getting so many visits. Congrats.

      I could not really identify any topic of your blog, though. Is there any?

      1. 1

        Yes, the daily email updates bring in anywhere from 2,500 to 3,000 visits per day (varies depending on that day's topics). The rest of the traffic comes from Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo and direct links.

        The general topic of my blog is technology but I write about most everything related to tech:

        Computer hardware and software
        Operating Systems (Windows, macOS, Linux)
        Mobile devices (Android and iOS)
        Internet (Connectivity, modems, routers, networking adapters, etc._
        Blogging (traffic generation, WordPress, etc.)
        Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
        Search (Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Pinterest)
        Gadgets

        There is a short list of topics covered at the bottom of every page with links to those categories.

    I publish a new post to joshwcomeau.com about every 2 weeks, covering front-end web stuff (React, CSS, animations, JAMstack). I get between 2000-3000 uniques a day.

    This blog is about 2 years old, though I had been blogging in Medium before that. Traffic comes through Twitter (I have a pretty large following there) and word-of-mouth. SEO is rising but it’s still <25% of all traffic.

      Thanks for sharing!

      I think JavaScript can get a lot of views. It's certainly an advantage to cover more popular stuff like React. Good luck.

    I have a personal blog which started off as a place to write posts about what I've learned in web dev. However, it's evolved to be even more personal, and I post about anything that's happening in my life. At current it averages around 30-50 daily views but I'd love to build it further and reach 500 views a day.

      I found that you never know which post will bring the traffic, so continue and you will get there!
