Thank you for taking the bold step out of your browser and RSS closets 10 days ago to add a comment on my blog post, Why I’d Like You to De-Lurk.
Responding to numerous requests to gauge the number of commenters vs the number of visitors and display some metrics, I used Google Analytics.
The results are interesting.
- Between January 3 and today, the post saw 308 unique visitors.
- Between January 3 and today, the post saw 35 unique commenters. (The post indicates 44 currently, but that includes responses by me, two repeat commenters, and an assortment of captured Twitter broadcasts.)
- This represents an approximate 9% de-lurking rate, keeping in mind several commenters admit they were first-time readers, forwarded on by others.
The average reader (out of the 308) remained on the web page for 4 minutes and 28 seconds.
Some people visited the page more than once, which explains the higher number of page views.
