Blog Traffic | March 2017

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.

March blog traffic

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:

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:

Stumbleupon (SU):

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:

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.

Twitter:

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.

Organic searches:

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.

  • Thanks for this, Anna. It’s always great to see when a blog takes off like this! Enjoy the success – as well as the freedom from a job which was obviously getting you down.

    Good for you 🙂 I like a lot of the articles you write, so that is a big part of it. You have interesting content, so keep it up 🙂

  • I’m back and forth about blog hops…and I host one! I’m doing a test this week, and probably for the next couple of weeks and cutting way back to see if it affects my views. Despite not doing it I’m still seeing growth (mostly through Pinterest).

    30th March 2017
  • That’s awesome!! My blog traffic isn’t anywhere near that yet but it’s super satisfying watching it grow xx

  • This is such a great idea for a post. I often wonder how well other blogs are doing on pageviews!

    30th March 2017
  • That’s an impressive outcome..still getting my way around stumble upon…and your the umpteenth person talking about seo’s….currently reading about it and I hope I get it right. Thanks for sharing

  • I find Facebook fickle. I am really interested in StumbleUpon, I do nothing at all with this. I am wanting to learn more!

    30th March 2017
  • I still need to invest more time into stumble upon but its great that it’s driving a lot of traffic to your blog x

    30th March 2017
  • Those are great accomplishments for the month. I have yet to venture to stumble-upon so I think I am going to look into that. My numbers have increased too but it is always good to have more eyes reading your blog.

    30th March 2017
  • You had a great month for traffic in March, congratulations! I’m so sorry the month was difficult with your other job but that is almost over for you and you can focus fully on your blog in April. Here’s hoping it’s a fantastic month for you.

    It is really lovely to see how happy you are with your continued success of your blog. Good on you. I hope it continues to improve and that there are better things still to come.

  • Looks great! I have cut down my efforts on my Facebook page by 2/3 and haven’t lost any pageviews. Pinterest has become my main source although since the new algorythms there has been a drop off.

    Keep up the great work.

    31st March 2017
  • Wow! Very impressive results. I don’t know much if anything about StumbleUpon. I’ll have to do some work and figure out how to add it to my sharing repertoire.

    I find pinterest and facebook are great for reaching people in my niche, and Twitter is great for connecting with other bloggers. Awesome that you got some traction on Twitter this month.

    Good luck in April!

    I am so glad to hear that your March traffic was great for you!! I had a pretty decent month myself, so yay for us! Also props for sharing this info on your blog–I bet some of your readers are aspiring bloggers and wonder about these sorts of stats

    31st March 2017
  • Well done on your March traffic, I never get time to do Stumbleupon and Pinterest as much as I’d like x

    31st March 2017
  • StubleUpon is really brilliant for traffic. I started using it this month and my traffic has grown but not as great as yours. Congratulations. I look forward to your Pinterest tutorial

    31st March 2017

  • Thank you for all the rich information here.
    I am bookmarking this to further consult.

  • some great results this month! Pinterest is also a great referrer for me and as much as I love link parties they just aren’t anymore :/

  • Joanna

    I think the most important part in your growth is that you have started to receive search engine traffic. That means that Google is snowing your website to people more often, which is great!

    31st March 2017
  • Those numbers are great and make me envious. I remember reading your blog tips for newbies and you have some great content. Keep up the good work and I will look out for your posts.

    31st March 2017
  • The Pinterest fairies just do not seem to love me. I do everything the pin experts say to do, and still my traffic from Pinterest is okay but not amazing. Still trying to get better though. I am so happy for oyu and your success each and every month!

  • StumbleUpon is one of my top, as well – and so is Yummly. Oddly, I don’t get much traffic from Pinterest (at least not as much as I would like). I’ll have to check out your tutorial on Google Keyword planner. I’d like to see my organic searches do better.

    31st March 2017
  • Congratulations on a fantastic month! Those are great numbers. Thanks for sharing not only your results, but your tips on how you got there.

    31st March 2017
  • Stumbleupon is huge on my blog too! I get quite a few from there and facebook. I’m really trying to get my views up with pinterest so this is definitely something I’ll have to look into! Thanks!

    31st March 2017
  • wow your blog traffic is amazing, mine is improving slowly. I need to try stumble upon more

    31st March 2017
  • I think changes in the FB algorithm are making it hard for FB page users. It does make you wonder whether or not it is worth using it as a blogger. Interesting to see that Stumbleupon is a big traffic driver. I don’t think enough bloggers talk about the platform.

    31st March 2017
  • Knowing that there are really someone reading our blogs makes blogging and writing more fun. Cheers for your success and to our blogging life!

  • Amazing results for March here. Well done Anna.

    1st April 2017
  • This is really interesting, and probably something I should pay more attention to with regards to my own blog. I’ve never used Stumble Upon but it keeps popping up, so I think I’ll look into it. Glad all is going well for you blog-wise 🙂

    1st April 2017
  • Lydia

    Great work, those are some amazing results!! I can’t wait to read your popular posts. I’ve heard SU has had fabulous results for blog traffic, I NEED to try it out for my own blog

    2nd April 2017

    2nd April 2017
  • Ah well done that’s a brilliant result! I’ve found this really helpful as I had no idea what Stumbleupon was so I’m now off to investigate 🙂 xx

    2nd April 2017

    2nd April 2017
  • Congrats on such a great month, your numbers are awesome.Thank you so much for the tips, I am growing a little at a time with Pinterest, but still not having the success that I want.

    A LOT of my page views come form organic search. People forget that blogs DO come up on Google (sometimes, anyway!) and thats exactly the reason that I don’t put do-follow links in sponsored posts etc. The traffic is more valuable. 🙂

    2nd April 2017
  • Its good to hear that you had a great month and awesome traffic on your blog. Keep it up and more power to you!

    3rd April 2017
  • This is some great traffic growth. It’s so important to be able to see your blog growing and your brand progressing.
