My Dream Come True: Some Incredible JewishMOM.com Stats
4 years ago I was working as a freelance writer for Aish.com and Chabad.org and a bunch of other Jewish sites and publications.
But that all changed when my learning partner and I started learning Rabbi Noach Weinberg’s 48 Ways, and we were presented with Rabbi Weinberg’s life-altering question, “What is your goal in life?” So I told my learning partner that, among other things, my goal was to inspire Jewish mothers with my writing and videos. And I also pointed out to her that I really wasn’t accomplishing my goal. I was inspiring a lot of people with my writing. But my dream of reaching out to Jewish moms in particular wasn’t really happening.
So, a few months later, I gave up freelancing, and started spending all my morning hours working on JewishMOM.com. And, over the past few years, I have been able to, slowly slowly, see my dream become a reality.
But I hadn’t realized to what an extent my dream of 4 years ago has actually come true until I looked at my google analytics for the first time last week, and I found out all sorts of fascinating and wonderful information about YOU, my dear JewishMOM.com readers.
One recent, typical JewishMOM.com month looked like this:
JewishMOM.com had 13,036 Unique Visitors.
That means that over the course of one month, 13,036 different people visited my site. When I read this, I remembered back to a talk I attended by one of Israel’s most famous rabbis in one of Israel’s biggest auditoriums, and I did some math and figured out at the time that over 3000 women were sitting in that humongous hall. And when I read that I had had 13,036 unique visitors, I realized that over 4 times as many people as had filled that auditorium visit JewishMOM.com every month. And that felt a bit heavy to me. I actually felt that responsibility like a physical weight inside my chest. But it also felt and feels very exciting. To see the wonders of Hashem, and how He has enabled me to reach so many moms through the miracle of the internet…
I also found out that:
10, 295 (55%) of my visitors live in the United States (and 3512 of those Americans live in New York)
4519 (24%) of my visitors live in Israel
970 (5%) live in the UK
696 (3%) live in Canada
518 (2%) live in Australia
There were also visitors from Germany, Belgium, South Africa, France, as well as other countries.
40% of my visitors arrived at JewishMOM.com directly (through looking up my URL)
21% arrived at JewishMOM.com through Google
20% found it through Facebook (thanks so much to all you JewishMOMs on Facebook who have helped so much to spread the word about JewishMOM.com!)
And something curious…The most common search engine keywords that brought a person to JewishMOM.com were:
1. Hebrew Name Tsofia (This is my daughter’s name. Though I’ve never really written anything about it. I wonder what these searchers actually see…)
2. Chanoch Lenaar Dina Friedman (this is my incredible parenting class which I mention from time to time)
4. jewish mom
5. Segulot (auspicious practices, as in auspicious practices for birth and pregnancy)
6. Chana Jenny Weisberg
Anyway, all of this is just a way for me to publicize the miracle that Hashem has made by enabling JewishMOM.com to succeed like it has. Thank you, Hashem. And thank you, my dear JewishMOMs!
May this site continue to grow and continue to spread inspiration from one Jewish mother to another. Please G-d!
