Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. I just read Frequent Miler’s post this morning (How Frequent Miler (the business) will survive COVID-19) and thought it would be interesting to see what Travel with Grant blog posts people read year to date (January 1 – March 31) vs. what blog posts people read during the last 2 weeks (March 18 – March 31). I listed the top 10 posts for each period of time and their corresponding pageviews during that time. Red text represents blog posts on both lists. At the end of this post, I will also provide some analysis of the results below.
Posts for January 1 – March 31 (Year to Date)
Posts for March 18 – March 31 (Last 2 Weeks)
As you can see, there are 5 blog posts that make both lists. According to this data, people are interested in Zelle and how to send money to other people or to other bank accounts. Perhaps people are using Zelle to send money to their friends and family members who need help during the coronavirus pandemic. People are still interested in adding PINs to gift cards. I guess people are still buying gift cards. People are interested in printing USPS and UPS shipping labels from their PayPal account. It’s much easier to print them online than to go to the Post Office or UPS Store to get the shipping label. Walmart is still cancelling people’s orders. I usually see this blog post gain popularity in November and December due to holiday shopping, but now it seems people are stocking up on supplies. Lastly, I’ve seen several TV commercials for Chime during the last 2 weeks, so people are probably searching for more info about Chime.
I’m not sure if this analysis is helpful or useful, but hopefully it provides some insight into what other people are reading these days. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
