SemiWiki Analytics Exposed 2013

SemiWiki Analytics Exposed 2013

One of the benefits of blogging is that you put a stake in the ground to look back on and see how how things have changed over the years. You can also keep a win/loss record of your opinions, observations, and experiences. Last year I posted the “SemiWiki Analytics Exposed 2012” blog so here is a follow-up to that.

The Semiconductor Wiki Project, the premier semiconductor collaboration site, is a growing online community of professionals involved with the semiconductor design and manufacturing ecosystem. Since going online January 1st, 2011 to June 30th 2012 more than 300,000 unique visitors have landed at www.SemiWiki.com viewing more than 2.5M pages of blogs, wikis, and forum posts. WOW!

Wow indeed. We have now had more than 700,000 unique visitors and they just keep on coming. Original content and crowdsourcing wins every time, absolutely. There is a plethora of website rating companies but we use Alexa (owned by Amazon.com) as it has proven to have the most comprehensive and accurate analysis in comparison to Google and internal analytics, absolutely.

Yes a 73% increase is a big number but let me tell you why. First, you may have noticed we installed a new version of SemiWiki this summer which is optimized for speed and search engine traffic. My son the site co-developer has the summer off (he teaches math) so we kept him busy with site optimization. Second, we enhanced our analytics and internal reporting so we know more of what is happening inside SemiWiki. A good friend of mine is a Business Intelligence (BI) expert for a Fortune 100 company and shares his expertise with me in exchange for food and drink. Okay, mostly drink. This enhanced data mining and reporting capability gives our subscribers a clear view of what does and doesn’t work so we can manage the growth of their landing pages and SemiWiki on a whole.

The Semiconductor Wiki Project, the premier semiconductor collaboration site, is a growing online community of professionals involved with the semiconductor design and manufacturing ecosystem. Since going online January 1st, 2011 more than 700,000 unique visitors have been recorded at www.SemiWiki.com viewing more than 5M pages of blogs, wikis, and forum posts. WOW!

I would tell you more but the new SemiWiki 2.0 software release is so amazing it would sound like I was bragging and I’m much too humble to brag.
