I just noticed that I had a tag of "blog stats" and went to check it out, you know how I love stats ;) I posted it just over a year ago and thought it might be interesting to compare - if I can remember how to find the info in google analytics lol I'll put last year's figures in brackets*.
where do people go first up?
22% (30%) of all my hits come straight to the front page
9% go to the page to find more Thermomix recipes (5.4% of all my hits have gone to the white chocolate rocky road recipe (and another 1.9% went to the tupperware version i posted))
6% (3.8%) go to my thermomix review
4% go to my very out of date list of MY thermomix recipes (2.5% are after the honey parsnip soup recipe (almost all of these searchers are from britain))
and 2% just look at the thermomix tag which IS up to date with all my thermomix recipes ;) (2.3% come in for my favourite choc chip cookie recipe!)
well, that's interesting that a year down the track it's almost all thermomix related...
the next 5 are my review of cyndi o'meara's gluten free bread, sweet treats, winter warmers, my thermomix carrot cake recipe and the pumpkin risotto for the thermomix recipe :)
