Ijust found a site that grades how well you're doing across the social media front. A fellow blogger mentioned Grader.com and how simple it, well, GRADES. Have a twitter account? How about a blog? Website? etc. I'm glad I found this site because although extensive analytics will cost you, some free tools are still available to us frugals. I currently have technorati, alexa, and google analytics tracking for me but I really don't understand it. There is something really simple about getting an A or B or C. I get that .)
"Grader.com is a suite of tools that helps you measure and analyze your marketing efforts."
You can even get a cool badge to paste on your site.
I entered both my
domain and my actual blogger url
www.Home-Mom.com www.home-momblog.blogspot.com .
As far as my blogspot goes it said I have good subscribability
(rss, email subscriptions, twitter, and facebook)
I found it really helpful that it gave me suggestions, for FREE!
- I should ad a retweet button and a facebook like button to all posts
- I should lengthen posts. avg post length is 68 words, avg links per post is 0
I was actually really surprised with the numbers. Especially since in the last few months I've really slacked on updates, (Four kids, homeschool, LAUNDRY, has wiped me out). Really it's my lack of planning and organizational skills that's holding me back.
If you didn't notice the SITS button in the sidebar, there's a new blog challenge involving PHOTOGRAPHY. It starts tomorrow and I seriously can not wait!!! EEeeeeeeek, hubby has got to work from home (and help me!) and do what we've always wanted, pursue our passion for great pictures.
So, if you're interested check out Grader.com, I'm curious if you're surprised with your stats. If you know of a better way to track this sort of thing. Please share.
This is not a paid for post, I just found something I thought I'd share .)
