Traffic

Traffic for November decreased over 9% from October. We averaged over 630 page views per day in November which was down from 673 in October! We hit over 3500 unique visitors for the month which is 21% less than last month! We had a big problem with Facebook during the month of November. This just proves that growth is not guaranteed and we need to continue share and reach as many people as possible! We tried to stress to everyone how important it is to join our email list just in case this ever happens again. You can join here.

Social

Only 12% of our traffic came from social which is a decrease of 10% from what we had in November. As I mentioned before we were banned from sharing on Facebook for a few weeks and thus the big decrease in traffic from social!  The software we started using in August is working is still working well and we are back sharing on Facebook so we should be good for December.

What we did in November

More like what we were not able to do in November. The fact that we could not share in Facebook really hurt our mission of getting the teaching of God’s Word in front of as many people as possible. We will bounce back!

What we have planned for December

We have been looking at moving our hosting to a WordPress dedicated hosting solution. This will speed up our site along with making it more stable! The only downside to doing this is that it is more expensive. Most improvements cost more money.
