Well, it’s that time of the year again where I foolishly share all my confidential analytics about one of my Ecommerce businesses HouseOfRave.com!
All numbers are for the full year of 2010 (That’s Jan. 1st till Dec. 31st 2010 for all your dummies out there).
Let’s get started with a general overview:
For the most part it looks like I have moderately predictable traffic.
Something noteworthy here is sometime in late July 2010 I installed the Asynchronous Google Analytics which can keep track of all ecommerce activity on the site. Naturally this pushed down my average conversion rate (since stats weren’t collecting for half the year).
It also accounts only the revenue generated after that period. I think the numbers are pretty close to accurate (I haven’t verified to the cent, but I know they’re not way out of whack either).
SO I technically don’t have all the correct information on this graph until after July 2010.
Looks like Internet Explorer is still the dominant browser, FireFox really close, and Chrome gaining lots of traction (I pretty much exclusively use the Google Chrome browser because it is…well…awesome).
What was surprising is that pretty much 98+ percent of visitors have a high speed connection. Dialup is only 1.34%!!!
Hahahah….I remember those funny Dial-Up screeches :-)
Here’s revenue screenshot from my back end Shopsite panel:
Some of the tracking info such as hits & pages is linked with the Plesk Stats, so they get deleted after 12 months or so (hence the zero’s for Jan – Apr).
For what it’s worth, here are the Plesk statistics for HoR (almost all of 2010 is shown, I only get last 12 months of reports):
The Unique visits show on average about 80% more visitors than the Google Analytics show. I attest this to people looking at (or linking) images (from Google Image Search or similar + blogs etc) and leaving. So technically these ARE “unique visits” but they don’t TRULY count since the person doesn’t stick around long enough to browse the site (or ever even get to the site).
Well, that’s a nice little recap in numbers of 2010.
Time to close out 2010 and bring in 2011 (damn, this post is like 2 months late)!
