U.S. Rent A Car Blog Hits 700 Posts

Hi all,

Despite my negligence this year, the U.S. Rent A Car Car Hire USA blog has just hit 700 posts, an achievement we are all quite proud of.700 posts

The blog itself has been live since 2009 but it took us a bit of time to find our feet and figure out exactly what we wanted to be. Originally we posted reviews of Orlando and top 10 lists etc but for us it felt like every other corporate blog, it lacked personality.

The blog really took off when myself and Simon started writing specifically about car rental and making the posts more personal and even sometimes adding opinion. (shock, horror)

The blog is now a major communications tools for usrentacar.co.uk and posts and features have been included in other media sites, most recently due to our coverage of the International Driving Permit issue.

Here is our top 10 most read posts of all time.

NB: I have not included hits directly to our homepage or book usa car hire page.

  1. Alamo Car Hire Now Accepting Visa Debit For Security Deposit
  2. How Can I Guarantee A Ford Mustang?
  3. Why We Are Number 1
  4. Alamo Car Hire Choice Product
  5. Dollar Car Hire Confirm Customer Choice For US Rent A Car Clients
  6. My Top 5 Thrill Rides In Florida – SheiKra
  7. NEW: You Will Require An International Driving Permit To Drive In Florida
  8. Best Locations To Collect A Ford Mustang From In Florida
  9. Universal Orlando and usrentacar Strike Up Partnership
  10. New Alamo and Dollar Upgrade Special Offer

Here’s to 700 more posts and hopefully a well overdue facelift :-)

Does Anyone Actually Read The usrentacar.co.uk Blog?

Hi all,

Today I was looking through a suppliers marketing  introduction, it’s basically a .PDF form designed to sell this supplier to us. One of the pages, listed its popular blog, citing some statistics that made me think about our own little blog. Which then lead me to check our own statistics…

Unfortunately our statistics only start from March 2009 but interestingly only 7011 visited the blog in 2009.

Amount of Posts - 655 including this one.

Amount of visitors – Total amount of visitors since 2009 is 210,663

Amount of Page Views – 734,512

All though these statistics are not that impressive if compared to our main website www.usrentacar.co.uk the social team are pretty happy with these figures, this may shock some of you but USA car hire isn’t the sexiest thing in the world but we try our best to at least make it interesting.

Looking at where our traffic comes from its interesting to see how the rise of social sharing sites has boosted the blog’s traffic.
