My First 3,000+ Visits in a Month

Posted Jan 18, 2013
This entry is a marker for my statistics, similar to my April 2012 entry: "My First 1,000+ visits.."

In my last entry, I had 1,000+ visitors in a month. Upon checking again today, I had 3,266 visitors in the month of December for mvergel.com; a 200% increase in the rate of visits since my last post.

My yearly statistics also improved. In my previous post, I had a merely 4,000+ visitors for the year 2011. In 2012, I had 22,000+ visitors; a 400+% increase!

I also moved up in the Alexa rating. My Alexa Trend/Rank last April 2012 was 8,280,675th for 1 Month ranking, 9,118,259th. Now it is 1,192,962nd and 1,627,888th respectively. I'm nearing the 6 digits mark! Of course, Google.com is still number 1.

My programming blog still has the most number of visits, good to know it's helping other people's problem. Second is my personal blog. My niche blog, blog.pesobility.com has already surpassed my food blog in terms of the number of visitors and it has only been up for several months.

I have a lot of blogs! Blogger doesn't have categories like Wordpress so I create new blogs as a way to categorize my posts. I'm even trying to sub categorize Pesobility (the general investment blog) and Pesobility Stocks (Stocks related blog, since stock trading is a different world).

I'm glad to see an improvement in my traffic and I'm learning from this experience so I can apply it to my niche site pesobility.com

I think the following contributed to the increase in visitors:
1. Writing more content (duh) which are beneficial to other people and spark interest.
2. Improving search engine optimisation. I write more tags now, and I improved my meta tags in my page and also linked my Google plus account.
3. Improved the layout and theme. It's mobile friendly and simplistic.
