Through the wonder of Google Analytics, we, as blog owners, can monitor what posts or pages are popular on our blogs. It helps us to gauge what type of content is of interest to our audience. Continually reviewing and analyzing metrics related to your blog is one of the jobs of a successful blog owner. Talk to any successful blog owner and they will tell you historically what were their most popular posts. This goes hand-in-hand with the old adage that says:
“You can't improve what you don't measure.”
