Chances are…you did. If you didn’t check them already, you’re probably going to check them later today. There are more statistics for us to check such as blog traffic or number of Twitter followers. Checking the statistics is just as bad as checking the inbox: we can’t get out of it.
I check statistics 10 times every day. When I think I am done for the day, I check the statistics of something I ignored or didn’t even know I had. I check the statistics more than I check my email.
There is no way that I am alone. Statistics are used by a lot of people to track the growth of their business, blog, product, and so on. Statistics store information years back, and we can easily access it.
Statistics are valuable to our business, but looking at statistics for too long can stunt business growth.
