Given that it's a holiday (here in the U.S.), I thought I would post something on the lighter side...
Because I use Feedburner and Google Analytics, I'm able to see how my readers reach my home page. I thought it might be informative to show you how people get (t)here...
Here are, in descending order, the most popular ways people find HR Tests:
1. Through Wikipedia
2. By searching for Jobfox (a very promising job matching service that I wrote a post about)
3. From my colleague Michael Harris' ex-blog, EASI-HR blog (now he's over at HRMplus)
4. Through IPMAAC (a great professional organization devoted to public sector assessment)
5. Through recruiting.com (clearinghouse for recruitment-related matters)
6. From selectionmatters.com written by fellow blogger Jamie Madigan (who also writes for TIP)
7. Through searches for Hogan assessments
8. Through recruitingblogs.com
If you own a blog, you might consider becoming more visible through these avenues. Yahoo! Site Explorer will give you similar, albeit non-rolled-up, information.
Alternatively, you could now point out to me that I'm missing some obvious source of traffic :)
Other random information:
Visitor location: The majority of my visitors are from the states, with Pittsburgh being the most common source. I also get a fair amount of traffic from Bombay (Mumbai), India. Other visitor locations include Bangkok, Canada, Dubai, London, and Singapore (to name a few).
Search engine: Overwhelmingly Google. The other search engines don't even come close.
Web browser: Internet Explorer has the lion's share (83%) with Firefox at 12%.
That's all for now--thanks for reading!
