From time to time I'm interested in what my reader would like to read.
But because I don't use any tracking, I do not know.
When I have a look at my dev.to dashboard, I can see that many readers read very short posts:
This first post with nearly 100.000 visits is just a 5-step tutorial.
So there are two questions:
- Does the past - which posts got the most visits - tell me anything about what my readers would like to read in the future?
- If I would know what my readers like, would I write more of this stuff?
Actually, I don't think that tracking every reader is worth the cost - the loss of privacy (you) and the loss of integrity (me).
