Sharing Some Stats After 3 Months


Many of the people I’ve had conversations with at NamesCon have commented about the transition from Elliot’s Blog to The migration took place three months ago today, and I thought I would share some of the high level year over year comparison from Google Analytics to give you an idea of how things are going so far. has received 9.65% more visits between October 15, 2013 – January 14, 2014 than it received between October 15, 2012 – January 14, 2013. For the same time period comparison, has had 11.93% more unique visits and 6.36% additional pageviews. The only metric that is off is a 3% decrease in pages per visit. The bounce rate sits at 78.43% (the correct bounce rate is 14.60%).

Now that it’s been three months, the Alexa score for the site should be fully baked, as the metric is based off of a 3 month time period. I don’t think Alexa tells the full story about a website’s popularity, but I think it’s a good indicator of a website’s health. As of today, has an Alexa ranking of 16,697.

As I’ve told some of the people who have asked, I am still appreciative of the onsite optimization work done by EverSpark Interactive. Cleaning up some of the onsite issues were important, and that work has paid off. I met with company CEO Jason Hennessey here at NamesCon, and he was happy to hear things were going well.

I will continue to do my best to provide interesting commentary and information, and I appreciate that you have made my blog a daily destination for domain investment insight.


  1. I believe that the traffic decrease on January 1st was due to the fact that the readers of Elliot’s blog tend to be a group that indulges in excessive amounts of alcohol and that they were all too hungover on New Year’s Day to hang out reading his blog. 🙂

  2. bounce rate > 78 is still high ? maybe some of visitors accessed your website via keyword ” investing” more than “domain”
