January was a big success visitor wise due to the fact that we revealed the teaser trailer, which of course caused lots of traffic. Since it’s been more then a month the February visitors statistics are back to normal.
We’ve had 2.006 visitors (-49%) and 1.155 unique visitors (-58%) generating about 7.000 page views (-55%). Even though it’s a leap year, February still had 2 days less then January making the percentages a little more dramatic. On average, a visitor spends about 2.51 minutes (-10%) on the site.
Over 41% (-18%) of the traffic originates from referring websites, which has the same order as last month: Facebook, Wikipedia, and triangle-studios.com. 30% (-3%) of the search traffic came again mainly from Google. Top keywords being ‘Cross of the Dutchman’, ‘Not provided’ (?) and ‘Cross of the Dutchman trailer’, the strange mystery keyword is still in second place. Direct traffic accounted for 28% (+55%). Campaign traffic generated by our newsletter stayed the same this month at 1% (0%).
The chart above shows our site statistics for the month February. A few things stand out, when we take a closer look. The peak at the start of the month is still caused by the teaser trailer, the other peaks are caused by articles that were released on that day. Average daily traffic was 69 visits (-46%) a day. In short, February was an average month and didn’t break any records like January did. February1st had the top peak of 121 (-80%) daily visits .
The Cross of the Dutchman community grew to 701 posts, 36 topics, 74 members, 113 Facebook fans and 429 twitter followers. Up to now we used 30,799 words to create 82 posts resulting in 254 comments. The article that drew the most readers this month was ‘Corporal punishment and death penalties‘, where ‘Teaser trailer release in retrospect‘ was a good second, ‘Corporal punishment and death penalties‘ and ‘Picture of the week #14‘ got the most comments.
