As a challenge to myself, I have set myself a challenge of taking this blog from a trickle of visitors to 1000 page hits per week, by the end of September. So, about 3 weeks on and at the end of the month, how am I doing?

March saw just 113 page hits, April had 255 hits and May had 273 hits. For June, the traffic level has increased to 466 page hits. No way near the 1000 target per week!

The best week was the week I started this self imposed challenge, seeing 130 page hits that week. So traffic is up, just not as much as I want to see. I think a few more unique articles are needed and I have a huge series of articles about to come off the press – along with the long promised Ebook…

Sadly, my efforts at commenting does not seem to be generating much traffic, although I have been choosing Do Follow blogs, so hopefully there will be a search engine links benefit there in the long term. Most traffic seems to be from Ezine Articles, which is always a good source of traffic. A couple of recent articles seem to have generated more visitors than others, so maybe these will really take off as they have only just been published.

However, a lot more work is needed so I’ll be experimenting with Twitter, maybe Facebook, and a few other tricks. I’ll post back in a few weeks a summary, sooner if I start to see a lot of succes with any of the methods!
