December was an excellent month for BTC Geek in terms of traffic. Even though the price of Bitcoin settled down into the $700s and the volatility fell drastically with it, the interest in Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies remained high. I am happy to report that this was the month with the highest monthly visits since the blog started, so I am happy with the way things are going. And unlike the previous months, there was no one single article that stole the show – I got a uniform traffic to a variety of different posts, spread throughout the month without too many ups and downs.
Here’s the overview for the month:
That was 33,046 Visits; 26,080 Unique visits; 42,332 Pageviews.
Here are the top-5 visited pages on the blog:
First off, notice that there is no homepage in the top 5 visited pages! Each of these were ‘viral’ in their own way, and they stand on their own merit. I am glad the top 5 were individual articles on this blog. My Free Bitcoin guide continues to attract traffic. I need to update the information on the page this month.
Here are the links to the top 5 pages:
Of course, the sudden rise in popularity of Dogecoin helped my article about how to Buy Dogecoin. I expect this traffic to decrease next month, for obvious reasons.
I very much enjoy finding out where my readers are coming from, which is also a good indication of how things in the Bitcoin world are moving around the globe. Bitcoin has the potential to better the lives of the poorest and most marginalized sections of society, so it is always good to see Bitcoin making inroads into other countries.
India has been in the top 10 for my blog for the last two months, and it has continued to do so in December. However, I was very happy to see Indonesia in the list this month.
The US remains firmly on the top, followed by UK. Can the Netherlands dethrone UK next month?
City-wise, for the first time, London beat New York and is on the top of my list. I don’t know why I have so many (not set) this time. Google Analytics can be missing a few data points like the city information.
Really good to see Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh in this list. Bitcoin needs to spread to all parts of the world.
