I’ve often wondered about the profile of readers and visitors to Experiments in Finance. I’ve noticed that my traffic has grown steadily over time (currently hovering around 1K visits a day on weekdays) and that over 90% come from search engines, which isn’t surprising given what I write about. Unlike most personal finance bloggers, I tend to write a lot less often and focus mainly on tutorials and long how-to posts, mostly about using Excel.
Earlier last year, I signed up for Vizu Polls as an income source for this blog. Income from Vizu has been very small, but paying publishers to display polls from interested parties seemed like a decent and interesting business idea. When there isn’t a paying poll to display, Vizu displays basic demographic polls for visitors to answer, and I’ve collected the findings here. I’m sure the data isn’t completely clean or scientific — I don’t know that they have a mechanism in place to prevent double answers, and of course, it’s garbage in, garbage out — but I find the results fun to look at anyway.
Do the results below describe you?
