10.5 Million Visitors Have Visited My Site

Last Update: September 01, 2016

I passed a pretty big milestone earlier this year and didn't even realize it. I had opened up my stats this morning and checked out the 'All Time' column and saw something that was quite surprising.

10,000,000+ people have visited my blog since I first started it way back in 2007.

This is also coming on the heels of my 10th anniversary. That means I'm averaging over one million visitors to my site per year.

What's my secret?

I don't have one.

I create content and publish new articles to my site 5x per week. That's it. That's all there is to it and I've been saying it for years now.

This simple "secret" has been the sole reason of my success and the reason why I am able to run a full-time business from anywhere in the world.

That's so awesome! Thanks for this blog, Steve! That's the same thing that I've just learned from watching a little documentary about Bob Hurley of Hurley International the surfwear company! He said that all he did was keep at it and didn't stop. He stated that he wasn't the most talented or gifted. Bob said that he just kept going. Thanks again for this encouragement :)

Wow congratulations, Steve!

I am amaze by how you can publish up to 5 posts per week, did you outsource since the beginning? Personally I can't write as much, I try to make the most out of each articles I publish both in terms of SEO and content quality.

Stay awesome,
Anh

I was writing 5 articles per week by myself for a few years. I now have a few writers on staff and that allows me to focus on other areas of my site these days.

My hat off for you, Steve. As a blogger, I know how writing that much per week is no easy feet, no wonder you succeeded. Great job!

10.5 million, awesome stuff!

I love your statement about there being no secret. Naturally when people hear stories like this the first thing they think is "what is your secret". The reality is that hard work + time is the biggest secret of all and it is something that we all have at our disposal.

I look forward to your post in the future....

Top Man Steve, what a great achievement. I've been on your site a couple of times and can see why so many people would check out your engaging and informative reviews.

Keep the good work up and thank you for revealing your secret on how to get visitors. Something that I need to work on.

All the best

It's not really much of a secret :) It's exactly what is being taught here at WA.

Great job Steve. I hope people paid special attention to the fact that there isn't some secret sauce. You're basically doing what WA teaches here. At least once or twice a month I get a private message from someone asking me what my secret is. And I tell them the same thing, apply what WA teaches and do it consistently until it does work for you. There aren't no magic buttons or secrets to this business. You're a testament to do that!

I feel like a broken record some times, but at least I have proof it works.

Me too. I feel bad because I know they're expecting me to say I have some secret technique that WA doesn't teach. But when I tell them I'm just applying what is taught here, you can tell they're underwhelmed by response. lol
