Would You Like to Track Your Medium Stats Like a Pro?
I Have Something for You Then
Would you say Medium stats are good enough?
Well, if you said YES, please let me disagree. I know for views, reads and fans there’re some graphs… but to be honest, this is NOT enough for me.
I want to be able to take some conclusions when looking at the dashboards, so months ago I developed my own tool for tracking my Medium stats.
The key is on correlations.
Let me clarify. I’m OK on having the total views per month… but let me ask you some questions:
- How are connected your number of stories with your total follows?
- Is there any correlation between followers and mail subs?
- What about your earnings? Are they affected if you’re having less followers?
Yes, this is what I mean by correlations.
Trust me, you’ll be able to assess your data and take your own conclusions too.
And today I decided sharing this tool with you.
Setting Some Context Before
It would be hypocritical to share with you something I’m not really using.
So, I invite you to visit this link where I share my Partner Program earnings. You’ll see some graphs there and, I promise, after ending this story you’ll be able to share yours too.
I’ve been using it since I started on Medium and, let me say this way, It’s cool being able to track how the stats goes up :)
Ok Cool, Let’s Go Now With the Important Stuff
We’re almost there.
In this tool you have 2 sections. Let’s go with the first one.
The Step by Step Process (Howto)
This is a new tool for you, so you have to learn how to use it, right?
Here you’ll find some useful screenshots I took showing the process for using the tracker. We could summarize it this way:
- Step 1: Go to Stats.
- Step 2: Go to Audience Stats.
- Step 3: Copy the data from there (Followers and Mail subs).
- Step 4: Copy the monthly earnings from the Medium Partner Program.
- Step 5: Now fulfill the Stats Tracker with all the data from the points above.
All the steps take place on Medium, just the last one is updating the Medium Stats Tracker. Let me show you how this section looks like.
The Medium Stats Tracker
This is where the magic happens.
You just have to complete the table with your stats and let the tracker do the rest. The Medium Stats Tracker already comes with some example data.
Please, be aware that you can only edit the required fields, so you won’t be able to select the others.
Once you’ve introduced your stats in the table, look to the right and see on real-time how the graphs are updated with your data.
You can download the Medium Stats Tracker from this link.
I would really love to receive your feedback:
- Did you find the Medium Stats Tracker useful?
- Would you add/change anything?
- Is the How-to clear enough?
I’ll be happy to read your comments below.
