Caroline is a technical product specialist at Yoast. In her spare time she writes and maintains a blog about life as a mother. In September 2014 she joined the company as a software developer without any idea what the Yoast SEO plugin even did. Something with SEO, sure. But who needs that as a blogger? That’s for the big companies out there that are only in it for the money. O, how wrong she was.

I love to look at my statistics in Google Analytics. I like to watch the numbers creep up slowly towards the goal I’ve set for this month, and I love to see my hard work paysoff. But there’s one thing I like even more than looking at my numbers: looking at the stats of the »
