this is a very subjective question and I know there's no right or wrong answer but I'm wondering for the average blog out there what is successful?
I have a niche blog which peaks in October then drops off until the following May, building to October again.
I'm in my second year and the month of September is already more than the entire first year as far as the number of views. (65,000 views currently).
I consider it to be successful in that in my other blogs (I have three) my months views number in the hundreds to may be 1000. So in comparison this one is wildly successful but in comparing to everybody else out there where do I rate?
And I don't mean to compare to guys like Darren Rouse but others like you who have good blogs with good readership, how do these numbers stack up?
Maybe I'm asking a question that everybody considers to be private and if so I apologize. I'm not putting my blog up because I'm not trying to drive my numbers higher artificially.
I'm also using Jet pack to drive my numbers from and it seems to match up with Google analytics pretty closely.but I'm not sure if Jeff pack and Google analytics is not counting the bots that visit. If anyone knows that answer I would also love the hear it.
