It is Sunday, so Today’s Post will be Brief but interesting.

 

In case you don’t know, in this section we talk about How we are building this Website: our SEO strategy, Theme and Plugins we use, our Real Results (Pageviews and Users we have)…

 

It will be divided into 2 parts:

1. Is it better to write Posts or Pages on WordPress?

2. Today’s Google Analytics report.

 

Let’s begin:

1. Is it better to write Posts or Pages on WordPress?

As you may know, we are currently writing Posts and Pages (Yesterday’s Post, explained how often are we currently publishing and our average Post and Page lengths, so visit our “13th day: How ofter are we posting” Post in case you’d like to know more about it).

We have noticed no difference between Pages and Posts, regarding the time it takes for having the first page views.

 

When should you write, then Posts?

You should publish Posts instead of Pages, when the content depends on the date it was published:

  • If you are writing about news.
  • If you are writing a Diary (such as this one, that is daily published).
  • If you are writing about anything where the date matters.

If you don’t find the date in these kind of contents you’d better look for another publication.

  •  For example: Imagine you are reading something about the currency exchange rate between dollars and euros. The first thing you should look for is the date of that article.

 

When should you write, then Pages?

You should publish Pages instead of Posts when the content doesn’t depend on the date it was published at all.

  • We publish Pages about Business Plans, Strategies, Marketing, Interpersonal Skills…
  • This content will essentially not change in years to come.
    • Of course, we’ll update it with new trends and methodologies but the core of the Pages will not change a lot.

 

Moreover, in these contents, showing the publication date, won’t benefit you at all:

  • If the date is recent, means nothing regarding its value.
  • If the date is very old the user may hesitate without any reason, since the content is as good as it would be if it had been published yesterday.

So you’d better don’t show the publication date in these contents.

 

2. Today’s Google Analytics report.

Users:

As you can appreciate in the Post’s Top image, yesterday we only had only 2 real users (4 – 2 users generated by Google Search Console’s crawling system).

 

Pageviews:

Regarding page views, we are not in a much better situation: just 4 page views.

 

The Website has been 100% active for 2 months.

  • This is just the beginning of a long journey, so we are optimistic despite the low results.

We feel like the trend is going up, but we’ll only know for sure in the next days.

 

This next week, we’ll publish an extended report about our 2 first months with:

  • Our Google Search Console results.
  • Our pages’ Ranking evolution.
  • The most common Queries.
  • etc…

 

Tomorrow, more.
