January review

With the release of the teaser trailer fresh in mind, we’re anxious to see what visitor boost it would create. Well here are the stats for January and we can say we’re very happy, enjoy! We’ve had a stunning 3.968 visitors (+95%) and 2.760 unique visitors (+119%) generating about 15.454 page views (+105%). This month was the most successful month since the site’s launch and we all know what caused it. We attracted more (unique) visitors than any month before! On average, a visitor spends about 3.32 minutes (+9%) on the site. The 60 sec. teaser trailer of course already accounts for 1/3 of the total. Assuming that most visitors watched it multiple times, like me, the grand total seems a little on the low side ;).

Over 50% (-18%) of the traffic originates from referring websites, which is back to it’s old order. Wikipedia returned as the badass of the week site wasn’t able to retain it’s third spot, making the new order Facebook, Wikipedia, and triangle-studios.com31% (+55%) of the search traffic came again mainly from Google. Top keywords being ‘Cross of the Dutchman’, ‘Not provided’ (?) and ‘Cross of the Dutchman trailer’, strangly enough some mystery keyword took second place. Direct traffic accounted for 18% (0%). Campaign traffic generated by our newsletter stayed the same this month to 1% (0%) which is a little odd as we sent out a newsletter this month, but it’s percentage got crushed by the other contenders.
