Initially I was excited to write a blog post announcing my experiment in posting news hits caused large growth in user sessions via Google Analytics. However, upon further analysis I noticed the session count did not correlate with my blog posts at all. Thus, I figured further investigation was necessary.
Below is the graph of what 486 user sessions looked like initially. The highest peak in the middle of the graph marks 96 sessions on March 17. There was no activity on the site by my end on that day
