I’ve noticed that a number of website owners will publish statistics about their site. I’ve always found these type of posts to be very interesting, and helpful as well.
Well, I’ve decided to follow Crystal @ Budgeting in the Fun Stuff and post my stats! But, I also want to thank those who have been very supportive of me. Therefore, I will list the top 5 commenters, top 10 referring websites, and other supporters along with my stats.
I have a plugin that keeps track of the top commenters for each month and posts the top 5 in the sidebar with a link back to their site (the link is “Do Follow“) . However, after the month is over, it resets the count.
Here are the Top 5 Commenters for the Month of October:
Of course, I would like to thank everyone who took the time to leave a comment! Reading and responding to comments helps to make this a lot of fun for me.
Here are the traffic stats for October:
I had a surge in search engine traffic this month due my Black Friday/Cyber Monday page! So I’m expecting my December numbers to drop significantly !
Now I need to find a way to get more repeat visitors, more RSS and email subscribers, and a lower bounce rate!
Here are the Top 10 Referring Websites for the Month of October:
(note: I only include other blogs or forums, not sites like Reddit, Tip’d, or Stumble Upon):
- Faith and Finance
- Tight Fisted Miser
- Eventual Millionaire
- Money Help for Christians
- Everyday Tips and Thoughts
- My Wealth Builder
- Political Calculations
- Deweys Treehouse
- Provident Plan
- Yes, I am Cheap
Yes, I know that’s really 11 sites, but Provident Plan and Yes I am Cheap were so close that I included both (and they are both big supporters as well)!
Thanks for all of the support and links over the past month. I’d hate to see what my traffic stats would look like without all these (and other) sites linking to me!
Something else that doesn’t show up in the statistics is all of the support that I get on the various social networks. There are people who will Tweet, Digg, Stumble Upon, FB Like, Tip, Buzz, and Vote up on Reddit, just about every one of my articles!
You all know who you are, and I plan to implement a more formal way to recognize you!
Here are a few things going on that you should be aware of…
