June review

A look back at the site statistics of June. The big thing in June was the opening of the pre-orders for the official Cross of the Dutchman novel by Ate Grypstra. Behind the scenes we’ve been working on improving the character animations and the group behaviors.

We’ve had 2.782 visitors (-52%) and 1.961 unique visitors (-48%) generating about 9.066 page views (-54%). On average, a visitor spends about 3.26 minutes (+2%) on the site. Over 38% (-32%) of the traffic originates from referring websites. Facebook took first place, followed by twitter and wikipedia48% (+50%) of the search traffic came again mainly from Google. Top keywords being ‘Not provided’ (?), ‘Cross of the Dutchman’ and ‘http://crossofthedutchman.com/’, the strange mystery keyword is still there. Direct traffic accounted for 14% (+17%). Our newsletter wasn’t able to generate enough Campaign traffic to play a significant role in all this. 0% (0%).
