I have been amazed by Coy Davidson’s willingness to share his blog stats. My first reaction is always, “Why would Coy share this treasure trove of information??”
Then, it occurred to me. For as much as we gripe and beg for CRE data to become more open and transparent, if we are overly protective of our own statistics, folks might as well lump us in with the rest of the CRE Dinosaurs.
A couple highlights -
Number of posts in 2012: 90 (1.7 per week)
Number of views: 40,000 (769 per week)
One other interesting point, is that while 769 views per week may seem a bit low, when we first started blogging, traffic was minuscule. Since then, traffic has seemed to double every 3 to 4 months, with no slow down in sight…

Which sites referred the most traffic?
This was mind blowing to me that a one-person blog beat out LinkedIn and Facebook. (Note to self: Stay on Duke’s good side….)
