End Of Year 2015 DivHut Blog Stats

As 2015 came to a close I wanted to highlight my blog activity for the year to see how the site has grown since my first article was published in late April of 2014. I’m thinking these types of posts would be beneficial to myself, and perhaps others at least a couple times a year. While I never set out to achieve any specific goal with my blog in terms of traffic, other than writing about and sharing my investments, I felt that by at least reviewing these metrics I could judge the overall health and growth of DivHut in the coming months and years. With that being said, below you will find my traffic stats for all of 2015 along with my stats since my first blog post was written.

The stats above just provides further motivation to keep investing and sharing my real life experiences with the DGI/FI community. I just want to thank everyone who has participated in leaving comments on DivHut as well as questioning and/or praising some of my investment decisions and/or comments. I continue to find the DGI/FI community extremely supportive and transparent which only translates to brighter financial futures for us all. I feel very proud of my little corner in the blogging world that has grown to what it is in less than two years. Of course, this was all possible because of you. Thank you again and have a great 2016.

    • Hi Tristan,

      Thank you for your continued support. It is pretty amazing being alive these days as each of us has the power to literally reach thousands, if not millions of people, all around the world. Filling up stadiums is one way of looking at my traffic and certainly gives you an interesting perspective regarding the number of people that have read my message. Thank you for commenting.

  1. Keep it up Keith. You’re doing fantastic and thank you for spending the time to keep up to date with your journey on this blog. I know it’s time consuming and I thank you. Keep hustling it up and enjoy the journey as well.
    Happy 2016!! Keep hustling it up and keep posting. I’ll be stopping by to read as always. Cheers.

    • Hi DH,

      Appreciate your kind words regarding my blog. While time consuming, it is a pleasure to write and create something from nothing. It gives me pleasure sharing my own dividend growth journey while also highlighting various dividend paying niche sectors. With baby DivHut taking up a lot of time during the day, I sometimes find that “quiet time” at night when everyone is asleep to write my posts. Bring on 2016! As always, I appreciate the comment.

    • Hi mraitn,

      Thank you for your continued support. These numbers are a direct reflection of my blog posts and journey that you and others continue to find value in as well as interesting. I thank you and all that visit DivHut. After all, it’s you and our online community that make all this possible. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi DD,

      We are definitely part of a tight knit online investment community and as we continue to share and remain transparent regarding our investments, all can glean some insight into our thinking process. Let’s keep encouraging one another through the successes and few failures that inevitably come up. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi talesfromthetape,

      Like you, I always love reading about what others are buying/selling as well as watching their dividend income progress. It’s a great little community we have here and the support we show one another is awesome. Thank you for commenting and look forward to following your 2016 results.

    Great numbers for your blog, I realy like your posts about investing, and I’m checking your blog a least once in a week to see if something is new.

    Happy new year

    • Hi divorcedff,

      I appreciate your continued support and feel a great satisfaction that you stop by my blog often to see what’s new. I’ll continue to post in 2016 as I have in the past and continue sharing my dividend income progress. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi R2R,

      Thank you. Your support is much appreciated. My goal is to have, at minimum, one article per week. Looking at my stats for the last year and a half I’m averaging more which is nice. My informal goal is to have between 80 and 100 articles in one year. Definitely a doable goal even with baby DivHut crawling all over the place. As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi AAI,

      That’s the name of the game. Articles are the lifeblood of any blog. More writing (interesting writing) usually equals more visitors. 2016 will be no different than last year or my first year of blogging in 2014. On to a strong 2016 no matter what the market does. Happy New Year to you as well!

    • Hi Gaston,

      Part of the fun of starting a blog is seeing the growth over time in traffic and the evolution of articles and visitors. Thank you for your kind words and support. I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi IH,

      All I plan to do is continue writing. I don’t really write with SEO in mind. Maybe I should, to increase that organic traffic. My feeling has always been to just write simple, clean and honestly and the rest will follow. So far, so good. I definitely need a course in optimizing the site though. In any case, I’m happy you continue to stop by and comment. I always appreciate the time that’s put in.

    • Hi Michael,

      Thank you for your kind words. It’s always interesting to read blog statistics and see who is actually coming and reading the articles we write. In under two years I have been quite impressed with how DivHut has grown. I guess the more you write and share the more popular a blog can become. Though we just started the year, I am curious to see how 2016 will finish traffic-wise. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi americandividenddream,

      Thank you for your kind words. I am very happy to be a part of our online community too, sharing and encouraging one another through all facets of saving and investing. Of course, I thank you for your support and for commenting.

  3. Great progress!

    Looks like fairly steady traffic levels. Given your good sized audience, you might want to consider being a little more aggressive in promoting your mailing list to build a stronger foundation for your search traffic to grow on.

    • Hi Jack,

      I know there is a lot more I can be doing to promote the blog from basic SEO tactics to promoting my mail list more aggressively. The truth is that I am more focused on writing a couple posts a week and simply sharing my real world portfolio/income along with other dividend related articles. Perhaps, one day, “I’ll come to my senses” and really take promotion of the site seriously. Thank you for your suggestion and comment.

  4. Those are some truly awesome numbers right there, Keith. And I’m happy to have been able to contribute to them via my views and comments. Your blog has been a great source of information on dividend investing and I’m glad I’ve found it. There’s a reason you’re on my blogroll; the quality of your writing is as high and consistent as your growing dividend income.

    Speaking of growing, here’s hoping that your page views and blog income continue to grow. Let’s also hope that Baby DivHut grows into a fine and responsible dividend investor, just like his father.

    Sincerely,

    • Hi ARB,

      I thank you very much for every visit and comment you leave. The growth of DivHut is because of people like you who come by to read what I have to say. I appreciate your kind words regarding my blog and hope I can continue to share with you interesting posts as well as my personal dividend growth journey.

      Interesting you mention baby DivHut as I plan to write a dividend income update for his portfolio in 2015 soon. Less than a year old and already on his own dividend growth journey 🙂 Thank you very much for stopping by and commenting.
