Traffic

July Traffic Stats

July had 4,193 more views than June which is a 22% increase! That was an exciting month. There are a few reasons I think July was that high.

  • My blog was linked to at least three times by other blogs, which had a huge effect on my traffic. Here’s the post that was linked to.
  • I continued adjusting my SEO approach last month, which seemed to help. I am still working on it, but I only see it getting better thanks to one of my readers, Michael. He has given me some great tips that I will be implementing soon.

July’s final numbers were as follows:

Views: 23,076
Visitors: 8,916
