Excel Help Milestone: 1.5 Million Page Views!

In my 7th year of blogging, I’ve reached another monumental milestone. In April of 2014, I surpassed one million page views. Today, I am excited to announce Excel Spreadsheets Help has surpassed the 1.5 MILLION page view mark. Yes, I realize there are larger websites out there that may have 1.5 million views in a single day, but those are larger brands with an entire team or company of people. This Excel help blog is run by one person in his free time using Google’s free Blogspot blogging platform, so to me it’s quite the accomplishment. And it’s hard to wrap my mind around 1.5 million of anything. That’s like 15 Ohio Stadiums full of scarlet clad football fans. Wow!

Now, let’s take a look at some fun numbers and statistics from seven years of sharing Excel tips and templates:
  • Excel Spreadsheets Help Age: 7 years
  • Total number of posts published: 248 (249 after this one goes live)
  • Time to get to 1 million page views: 53 months (2009 - 2014)
  • Time to go from 1 million to 1.5 million views: 21.5 months (2014-2016)
  • Total time to hit 1.5 million: 74.5 months
  • Estimated timeframe to hit 2 million page views: November 2017
  • Average number of posts per month: 3
  • 1.5 million views / 74.5 months = 20,134 average pageviews per month
  • 1.5 million views / 248 posts = 6,048 average pageviews per post
