Just when I didn't think it was possible to increase traffic significantly at my blog, Cash Flow Mantra, I discovered that my suspicions were unjustified. It turns out that a simple link at a relatively well read blog lead to a bunch of traffic to one of my articles. Of course I have gotten links before, but the amount of additional traffic to the site didn't spike nearly as much as it did yesterday.
My previous daily high for traffic happened almost one month ago and was 62 visits according to Google Analytics. Yesterday though I received 151 visits which is more than double! I simply can't believe it. I am so excited. The article that was linked was one of the most recent ones, My Investing Strategy for the Next Decade. Apparently many people were curious enough to read and click on the link.
I am hoping that I might pick up a few regular readers this way and that my level of traffic will achieve a new plateau. I am also hoping that the traffic may somehow help in my rankings and authority with search engines so that I can get more and more search traffic since search is more correlated to earnings than regular visitors. Of course, if I could get a few advertisers that might help but I am sure it will all come in due time.
Life and My Finances is Giving Away an iPad2
One of the personal finance blogs that I read is giving away an iPad2 to celebrate his one year anniversary. Wow! I can't imagine making enough at this point to be able to do that, but who knows. Maybe someday. Anyway, be sure to get over there and enter. You have nothing to lose and could win an iPad2. And if you don't win, you can buy one through my Amazon link above.
Thanks so much for reading.
