Now summer is coming to an end and we’re finally over the summer holiday period. Here is my August 2017 blog traffic report and how I achieved my 25,000 page views.
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.

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.

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

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.
