Analytics: September 2017

Oct 5, 2017
Analytics

As we await the changing leaf colors of Fall, Halloween festivities, and sweater weather we take a moment to look back at September’s analytics and how we here at Wonderful Machine fared. Wonderful Machine brought in a total of 16,400-page sessions, which is only slightly down from last month. This is most likely due to the one-less day we had and the various Holidays this month.

Breaking down those numbers we see that the US & UK continues to dominate our viewership, but Colombia & Spain made a guest appearance which we can confidently credit to the recent blog post on Sofia Vergara and Cerveza Aguila from member photographer Fernando Decillis.

Our "Find a Photographer" tab had 8,220 searches, bringing the average to 274 searches per day and Fabrizio Nannini, for the third month in a row, had the highest profile views. Keep it up, Fabrizio! Our second and third place members were split between long-time member Clay Cook with 84 views, and new member Bart Cooke following close behind with 82 views. Our photographers had a combined 5,664 click-throughs to their site, that’s an average of 8 clicks per photographer for September. Jennifer Silverberg took first place with 26 clicks and Fernando Decillis and Tropico Photo tied for 3rd with 25. 
Tropico was in our Photoville exhibit, also had an excellent blog post up on their latest blog post Day Trip for September. Additionally, Fernando Decillis and Jennifer Silverberg were both featured in our photographer spotlight emailer.

Fernando Decillis' campaign with Aguila Beer & Sofia Vergara, garnered the most views this September

The Wonderful Machine blog had a total of 6,077 views. If you missed out on some of the content, here’s the Top Five Posts for the month of Sept.

Fernando Decillis: Aguila & Sofia Vergara
Bobby Neptune: Water is Life
Ed Wray: Men’s Journal
Steve Greer: The Winding Creek Alpaca Farm
Weekly Roundup: Stefan Jermann, Jonathan Robert Willis, William Geddes

Lastly, it's worth noting that Fernando Decillis' blog entry has brought in a total of 537 pages view after only being live for 8 days. Compare that to Bobby Bruderle's G-Eazy post from 2015 which to this day has brought in a total of 4,513 page views, I'd say Fernando is on the upward path with clicks.

That's it for September! Keep liking, sharing, and reading the blog, and don't forget to send us your awesome projects to feature.
