I have been inspired to post 3 times per week at my blog, Cash Flow Mantra. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday a new post will appear. I may even occasionally be able to post a review with links on the weekend.
I started my new schedule this past week and am pleased to see that my traffic was up about 40% as far as I can tell. It only makes sense. Before, I was only posting about 2 times per week on average. Since most of my readers currently are regulars with not a ton of search traffic, that meant a reader would see the article and then only come back later when something new appeared.
Now since there is new material more days each week, then I am likely to get more traffic from my regulars with more opportunity that one of my posts ends up in a weekly round-up somewhere. I also have that many more phrases for some long tail searches to find my blog. I figure that will only enhance any search engine traffic.
Search engine traffic is actually growing fairly nicely as well along a slow upward trend. Currently about 27% of my traffic is from Google. I expect that this number should continue to increase and might even be about 40% by the end of the year.
According to Google Analytics, for the past 30 days, I have had just over 1300 visitors. I think this is a respectable number for a blog that only started at the end of May. I would like to have about 2000 per month by the end of the year. I think with my new schedule, I could come very close. I did have a big month in September when one of my articles got linked from a larger blog. I then got over 100 visitors per day for about 5 days. That was cool! But now, I am back to my regular level of traffic.
Earnings are OK, but certainly nothing to write home about. I have been a little disappointed but I have come to realize that there will be a constant ebb and flow in that regard. Eventually it all evens out in the end. My goal is to just make about the same as I did last year and to improve upon that each year after this.
Well, I still have to get about 5 posts written for CFM over the next 6 days before I head for Honduras. I did get a guest post for one day over the next 2 weeks leaving me 5 to go. I have ideas for 2 of them but will need to spend some time thinking about the other 3. Anyway, thanks for reading my blog here. I really appreciate it and thank you for your continued support.
