Now we really nearing the end of the year with only two months remaining. Here is my October 2017 blog traffic report and how I achieved my 24,000 page views.

Throughout October there was a little downward trend, but I attribute to that time of year and how we really nearing the end of 2017. So people are probably on holiday or are really busy with work. It ok and I’m still happy with my result.  My traffic throughout the year has been like a yo-yo.

My top 5 most popular posts from October:

I based it this month from page views on my Google Analytics. Which of my posts got the most views and which one got you talking the most. Mixtures of posts, ranging from ghost books to chocolates. As always I tried to write real mixtures of different posts. You guys seem to really enjoy reading – so I will keep doing what I’ve been doing.

How did people find my Blog?

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

Stumbleupon (SU):

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 throughout September went off like a firework. I always got an amazing result from It, but this time it really took off. This confirmed to me that it worthwhile investing time and energy to Pinterest. So why did it shoot off like a firework rocket?

Well as always 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 start to use it as a personal account, rather than a business one. What I mean by that I always hear from an expert how to use Pinterest like a business and only pinned images from your site, my advice is screw that and use it a personal fun account and pin anything you like. And as always I added more ‘pinnable’ images at the end of my posts.

I will admit unexpected surprise. I wasn’t expecting such a raise from Twitter. I think it did help that new people found my blog from Twitter. I also found that these new people were retweeting my blog links tweets, my mentions were filled with people tweeting both my old and new blog posts. This was amazing and I didn’t expect such lovely attention.  One more thing I did do was post more on twitter and have a chat with people. It well worth turning your attention to Twitter and just chatting to people.

What didn’t work in October:

You know what, I can’t think of anything as throughout October everything seems to be working very well. Everything seems to be on a steady trend so I have no complaint about anything as It was all good!
