I added Google Analytics to two weeks ago.  I don't have a huge number of users yet, but some of the results have been very interesting. For example, the amount of traffic that comes to the site from social media referrals is much greater than that from organic searches (e.g., google or bing). But what really amazed me was the number of users connecting from a mobile device - up to 60%!

Both of these require some action on my part. For the first, I plan to work next week on search engine optimization (SEO) and metadata for the site.  That should help users find when doing a search.  To address mobile users, I've tweaked the module positions in my Joomla template (CloudBase3) to put more of the fun stuff at the top of the site.  This blog post for example will now appear below the list of upcoming paint outs.  Hopefully these changes will make the site more useful and interesting to visitors on mobile devices. Well, I guess that's all for now.  Thanks much and have a very mobile week. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
