Best of Chair Blog Half December 2012 – Half January 2013
Based on our Feedburner stats.
Noteworthy: I’ve left out 2 from these top 5: Best of Chair Blog Half November – Half December 2012, also with 359 views and Top Posts December 2012 with 306 views. The reason is I want to concentrate on new posts in the period rather that a look back to a prior period.
Hurray! Google Analytics shows some recovery when compared with the period Half November – Half December 2012:
Visits: 20,131 vs 17,418 (+15.58%)
Pageviews: 45,416 vs 43,012 (+3.86%)
I wrote a post about my suspicion that Cloudflare has to do with the decrease on another blog that I started to concentrate all my under the hood activities: Does Cloudflare Take Away Your Traffic?. Cloudflare denies it, but I’m not sure they are right…Especially after I had turned off Cloudflare on January 1, 2013 traffic from Google Image searches started to come back.
And some Miscellaneous stats:

- 331 vs 324 followers on Chair Blog | Tumblr

Philosophically off course the question remains whether newcomers on the basis of a Google image search who leave the site again after a quick click are more important than our slowly but gradually growing basis of approximately now 3,000 fans who follow us regularly….My answer is: I care for both groups, because I want to share my chair hobby with as many people as possible.
