Rebuilding a Blog - Part 1

My whole buy a roll of film using Google Adsense experiment is turning out to be an eye opening one. It’s eye opening in the sense of scary.

I took a look at my Google Analytics data from the start of this year through June 30th. It’s easy to see that my engagement is dwindling away.

When I actually add a trend line, I can confirm that the trend is down.

Further, If I look at the most popular blog posts it’s easy to see that it’s my RapidMiner Tutorials (milkshake) that brings all the readers to the yard.

Since I’m now spending my time on the RapidMiner Community and won’t be posting Tutorials here anymore, I expect this blog to die a very slow and painful death.

Unless I step in and stop it.

How? By rebuilding this blog and remaining relevant.

I’m starting a multi part series on how to rebuild a blog, gather metrics, and measure success. I’ll use the revenues I generate from Google Adsense and various conversion rates to gauge how well I’m doing. Of course, I’ll add a dash of Data Science in there as well using my favorite tool: RapidMiner.
