Going Up, Up: I Finally Broke the 10K Mark
I’ve been working consistently on my website, writing and publishing 1,000 plus+word articles every week and using good keywords. So to reach 11K monthly visitors and a record-high 742 users yesterday was a huge accomplishment.
For the past 6 months, my daily users were ranging from 200 to 300 and at times it would go up to as high as 380, but that was about it. Monthly visitors were from 5K to 7K. And to be honest, I was quite happy with that.
Until some members here started blogging about some changes or updates in Google algorithm which may affect the traffic to our sites, positively or negatively, that is. Well, I got worried a little bit because mine suffered some significant bumps with Google’s update last year.
To my surprise, my traffic actually increased and I supposed part of it was a result of Google’s latest experiment. Overall, I’d say that using great keywords is the key to driving more traffic. And this is exactly what Wealthy Affiliate teaches.
One more thing I would like to share is the use of Pinterest. I started using this platform less than a year ago and today I am so ecstatic that I now have 193K monthly viewers, which is a 305% increase from last month. Again, the use of good keywords is key. I often re-pin my old pins but I use a different keyword every time.
Why is traffic so important? Of course, we all know the answer to this.
How has the latest Google experiment affected your traffic? Are you leveraging Pinterest? I would like to hear from you.
