DailyBlogging Traffic Stats for April 2011
April has gone by and I know many of you are hoping for the rains to come pouring out and shoo away the scorching heat. It’s important for you to be in good shape & fight the heat out. So, drink lots of water to avoid dehydration. You can read my article to stay fit for blogging this summer.
Coming back to the topic, I must say that April’s traffic was just semi-consistent. But I’m not unhappy about it, because I wasn’t able to post daily like I did in March. Still we managed to meet the targets set for the month i.e. to cross 5000+ search engine visits for the month and to consistently reach 250+ unique visits/day.

As I said earlier in the post, my target was to reach 250+ unique visits consistently. But I was trying to make it reach 350 on some days as well and guess what, we managed to reach that figure on a dozen days. As you know, I’m a firm believer of setting small targets & then meeting + extending it. So, again for May I’m expecting to reach 300+ unique visits consistently.
I know you may ask, when we are able to cross 350+ unique visits on some days, why don’t I set 350 as a target. The reason for that is, I’ve my second semester by 3rd week of May. So, have to prepare for those exams & it’s difficult to touch 350 consistently without writing a post daily.
Out of the 5000+ Search Engine visits, Google contributed to about 4900 unique visits. So, you can imagine the dominance of Google over other search engines and also the importance of WordPress SEO. I’ll set another small target of receiving 5500 search engine visits by the end of May. If you are trying really hard to get organic traffic to your blog, then the below SEO Tips will help you out.

If you notice carefully, we are starting to get some organic traffic from Yahoo. I’ve also been trying out some techniques for Reddit & the results are there. In the traffic stat for march, reddit was not to be seen in the top 10 list of traffic sources, but things have been working since then.
Last month we crossed 50,000 Alexa Rank mark. Currently, we are at 37,423. It’ll be a struggle from here on to cross 25,000 mark due to the competition from other sites. Hope to reach there when we really deserve to be there.
