This is one of those posts where I witter on about my favourite subject – stats. I love them. Can’t get enough of them. So imagine my excitement last night when I clicked on a teensy weensy arrow in my Amazon affiliate area and it told me just how many times the direct url (the one I put in Twitter or website) had been clicked. Oh, I was in my element last night I can tell you.
What it told me was that all the one-off tweets/FB/Google plus shares (the one I send when I list a book) get one or two link clicks, but the paid ones are seeing a few thousand visits to the page over the duration of the ad.
This one here (from when we had only 1,000 followers) was one of the guaranteed Twitter engagement ads and ran for five months:
The ‘1’ was a sale, although I would like to think the other 3,650 visitors didn’t just click and run. This particular book is on Kindle Unlimited, so I’m assuming (hoping) a few people took advantage of that, and then, of course, there are kindle samples (which I, myself, usually go for when directed to a book.)
I did hear that page visits alone can help (a little) with rank, although I don’t know how true it is, I’d like to think this website helps out independent authors in some small way.
Anyway, I thought I would share this with you.
