Have you looked into your blogs most visited articles for the last year?
Did you have any interesting results when you looked back at your top articles?
Today, I wanted to share R & R Web Design LLC’s top 10 most visited blogs for 2013. I also wanted to share with you something I noticed about all the blogs I write for.
I love to post top 10 blog articles of each year because it really tells you what is working and what isn’t. This year, I noticed something that I should have expected, but didn’t.
For all 5 companies I write for, the older the article, the more likely it made the top 10 list. For one of the companies, the top 10 list was filled with articles written in 2012! Only 2 out of the 10 made the top 10 list that were written in 2013, and those two articles were both written in January 2013.
So, what does this tell us? That blogging is not a sprint. It is truly a marathon. So, don’t give up. Even if you are only posting once a week, keep going, and you will see results.
You’ll notice below is R & R Web Design’s list of top 10 most visited articles according to Google Analytics.

In August of 2012, Robin from R & R Web Design LLC wrote an updated article to reflect Facebook’s changes. Both the original and the updated are in the top 5.
