Now we are firmly into 2017, my March blog traffic is looking better and better. Here how I achieved my 18,000 page views this month.
If I was happy with my February result, then you can only imagine how I’m feeling right now with my March result.
My March blog traffic went off like a rocket into some far off universe never to be seen again. Seriously March was my best ever result.
My top 5 most popular posts from March:
- A Short Story of My Alcohol Consumption
- My Top 5 Blogging Advice for Newbie Bloggers
- 50 blog post ideas for when you have writer block
- Why You need to Go Crazy for Pineapple This Year
- How to use Google Keyword Tool for Your Blog?
My most popular posts were all blogging advice and this make me so happy. It really nice that you are all enjoying my marketing & blogging posts. I enjoyed writing them and if I can share a little bit of my blogging knowledge with you – and if it benefits you in some small way. Then I’m a happy blogger!
March for me wasn’t a great month, for me I just wanted to get it out of the way as fast as possible. Nothing bad happen – just had problem with my other job. But it over and from the 1st April I will no longer be working with them.
While I was focus on here, 90% of my attention was on something else. However, my blog went off like an explosion into the night space. It just kept on climbing – it was just brilliant. Fantastic and I’m over the moon with how my blog exploded this month.
From April I’m able to give this my 100% attention so things are looking up and brighter every day.
How did people find my Blog?
My top 3 results came largely from Stumbleupon, Pinterest and Twitter:
SU was another fantastic and brilliant result. Those I didn’t give it my full attention, it still carried on going and giving me lots of lovely blog traffic. It really helped pushed up my March blog traffic. Here how It can work for you.
It really simple. Every time I publish a new post I simple add it on SU and then stumble on a few pages. I also add my link (which has a SU button) to a few Facebook SU threads which allowed people to then add my site to their SU. So you get not only traffic from your own SU but from other people as well. Don’t just add your link and wait for the traffic to come as it more likely won’t.
Pinterest was another amazing result this month. I noticed a big increased last month in term of blog traffic. This time I would consider march to be another solid good month. I still 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.
I will be writing a tutorial on how you yourself can achieve such amazing result for your blog in the coming week. I know I said that last time, but you know I was busy – this time I will do it.
Now that was unexpected and pleasant surprise. I focused on twitter this month and it had paid off. I found people were retweeting my blog links tweets, I had people even adding my blog links to their own twitter profile. My mentions were filled of people tweeting my new blog posts. This was amazing and I didn’t expect such lovely attention. One thing I did do was post more on twitter and use the appropriate hashtags. It well worth turning your attention to Twitter.
My organic searches also climbed up this month. This is a brilliant result as I didn’t really focus on my SEO. What I did differently this month was to incorporate Google Keyword planner into my SEO strategy. It helped me find certain high leveled keyword that will be beneficial. If that sound confusing, don’t worry as I’ve written a tutorial.
To help you increase your site organic searches it might useful to read my post on how to make your blog more SEO friendly.
What didn’t work in March:
- Blog links parties – that not to say it didn’t work but just not as well as I hoped. I still got traffic but just not a huge amount. I’m not sure if it works while keep adding my site to various blog links parties.
- My personal Facebook traffic. It hard to know if my Facebook page is bringing in traffic, I will need to look into this.
Goals for April:
I’m actually not going to write any goals here, I’m useless at keeping goals so for now that is out of the window. I might think of some later.
And that was my March 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.
