I’m a HUGE fan of Google. Searching, news, images, video, mapping, finance, etc etc, you name the app, and I dig its functionality and added task value. Now I have a new reason to love Google – Google Analytics! We use Google Analytics to check on our blog’s performance elements such as readership, content effectiveness, and connectivity with the transit community, as well as the general blogosphere. Since our ‘soft launch’ last month, we’ve discovered that in the first 30 days of business our visitors represented 299 cities, 40 countries, and five continents. Wow, that’s pretty cool if you ask me.
The maps below are copied directly from what we see inside the Google Analytics program. In the first map, a darker shade of green represents a country with higher levels of visitors. The city map speaks for itself. It’s pretty amazing to think about how NextStop is connecting with people all over the world.
On behalf of the NextStop blog team, thanks to all our readers for your interest in joining our conversations about transit! It’s been a great experience so far, and we look forward to many more discussions in the future!
