Are you an amateur or professional online article submission site author? If so have you considered how many people are viewing your articles each week? Well your average article views should give you a clue. And perhaps you are an analytical thinker and wish to compare your results with other online article authors?
Perhaps the person with the most data would be a very reputable online article submission site operator and perhaps you might take a few top authors or online article submitters by quantity and volume and attempt to key off of them? Well that makes sense right? Well, actually yes and no.
Yes because if you look at someones average article views who has 7000 articles online and 252 average views per each article then in fact that might be relevant information in tracking your own statistics right? Well it should however there are other variables you must consider to get a good reading on predicting the weather so to speaketh.
You see, you can screw with the numbers all you want. But I hope you here what I am saying. If you have 60 articles cooking for X time and post 10 new ones in one month making 70 and X was equal to the percentages of increase of articles then you could be closer to your thought. But also realize the seasonality.
Internet Traffic peaks in Oct, Nov, Dec. and in April, May. The rest of the time it is lower Jan-Fed better than that low or something like this. The actual dates irrelevant to illustrate the point.
Now then, provided you matched my seasonality rates moving thru the year the comparison could be said to be a fair one. But all this is doubtful and comparisons mean nothing unless criteria matches [apples and oranges otherwise]. So perhaps you will consider all this in 2006.
