Book Blogger Survey Results and Statistics

Last year I did a Book Blogging Survey to see what stats look like for book blogs. The idea behind this is to get a better idea about average book blogging statistics  and to offer some transparency about the statistics of book bloggers.

I decided to do it again this year to compare with last year's results and see if the same answers still apply in 2023.

Book Blogging 2023 Survey

Now it's time to see how this years results match up with last years. 

I set up a thread of polls on my Twitter profile, just like I did last year, using the same four questions.

Book Blogging in 2023 Survey Results

How long have you been book blogging?

It's encouraging to see that there are still an increasing number of new book blogs being created; 6.3% this year compared to last year when new blogs made up 4.1%

It's also nice to see that people are continuing with their existing book blogs. The majority of book blogs continues to be in the 1-5 years bracket (60.8% last year)

How many page views do you get per month on average?

Although the average remains under 5K (83.3% last year) there is a general improvement with 5k-10k jumping from just 4.2% last year to 10.9% this year. 

On average, how many comments do you get on your blog each day?

This continues to be one of the areas where the majority continues to struggle. 

Where does most of your blog traffic come from?

There isn't much change on traffic sources from last year with the majority continuing to coming from search engines and social media, highlighting yet again how important it is to use correct SEO in your blog posts and to include social share buttons on your book blog. 

If you know of other surveys offering statistics to do with book blogging please let me know about them in the comments section below. 


I hope this survey has offered some valuable insight into book blogging statistics and given you some food for thought. 

We're all at different points in our book blogging journey and a lot of us are struggling with the same problems... even those of us that have been doing it for years. Don't get discouraged. 

Did any of these results surprise you? Where do you stand in regards to the book blogging average for these stats?

  1. It’s always interesting to see the stats! Although I’m getting the views, my blog struggles to get the number of comments I’d like! ~Carol @Reading Ladies

    1. Comments are definitely something I think the majority of bloggers struggle with. I know I do. Congrats on your views.
