August 2017 blog traffic report

While I didn’t outdo my July amazing result, and I am finished again on 25,000 pageviews. I still consider August to be a winning month. You guys, I’m still ‘winning’ at this whole blogging game. I like to think that throughout August people were outside having fun and not being a sado sitting at home all day *cough*. August for many people is the holiday month, it when the kids are not at school and everyone goes on their vacation. So overall I’m not disappointed and at least I saw no declined.

My top 5 most popular posts from August:

Fashion Wishlist | A Topshop Problem

Book | The Creative Space Journal

My Obsession with Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lips Colours

A Guide to Backlinks and How It Will Benefit Your SEO

Visiting Basildon House

If you are new to my blog traffic report, then I based my top 5 most popular posts from how much engagement is has received, not just here through comments; But also through other method such as organic traffic and social media. So if you are one of the new people here, well hello there. My advice would be to pull up a chair, brew a cup of tea and get comfy, as folks I’m only getting started.

How did people find my Blog?

My top 3 results came largely from Stumbleupon, Pinterest and Organic Traffic:

Stumbleupon (SU):

As I said last month, SU is just a steady source of traffic for me and it doesn’t look like it slowing down anytime soon. It most defiantly helps on keeping my traffic up.

If you haven’t read my SU post, then read it today.

Pinterest:

Pinterest was another welcomed surprise as it just got better and better throughout august. Amazing result.  I’m always hearing from other bloggers that Pinterest was a good traffic source – so It been my aimed to bring it back up. And it worked.  This month I added all my blog pictures to appropriate boards and to Pinterest groups. I re-pinned various other images. Joined in with Pinterest Facebook groups and just re-pinned images that I liked. As well as that I always added more ‘pinnable’ images at the end of my posts.

Here is a tutorial I wrote on how to increase traffic to Pinterest: My 5 Best Pinterest Advice

Organic Traffic:

My organic searches went through the roof this month. This is what I think stopped the ‘summer slump’ and gave it the stable traffic pageviews.  I had a few people who said they found me through various Google searches, this make me happy as I’m having new readers.

Now if this is something you would like to achieve for your blog, the I have written the ultimate SEO & blogging guide. It a huge resource of everything that will help you.

What didn’t work in August:

You know what, I can’t think of anything as throughout August everything seems to be working. I have no complaint about anything as It was all good!

And that was my August 2017 blog traffic report. It was a bloody brilliant month and a big thank you so much for supporting me. It means the universe to me that my blog is doing so well and I couldn’t have done it with you – Thank you so much, everyone.

    Great job with your traffic. Summer months are hit & miss for traffic. Often folks are traveling and distracted by other things.

    This sounds really good. I am still struggling to make headway with Stumble Upon. It hurts me not to have a niche. Congrats to you!
