2011: Blog Traffic Up 26%
I am not someone that likes to gloat or brag, and that’s is the primary reason I don’t generally publish my sales in DNJournal nor do I write about anything related to how much money I earn. However, someone linked to my blog’s Compete chart in a comment on Mike Berkens’ blog, and that anonymous coward said traffic was down 59% year over year.
I think TechCrunch put it best: “If You Cite Compete Or Alexa For Anything Besides Making Fun Of Them, You’re A Moron.”
For the sake of transparency, I am happy to share my year over year traffic numbers, with the matching Google Analytics screenshots. In 2010, my blog received a total of 460,110 Visits, which I think is pretty solid. In 2011, my blog’s traffic increased to 581,731 visits, an increase of 26%.
I also use Stat Counter to help verify traffic and because I like it’s interface. Stat Counter listed 607,299 visits to my blog in 2011 vs. 453,251 visits in 2010, which would indicate a 34% increase in traffic.
As for my business, 2011 was also pretty good. For comparison purposes only, 2011 ranked as my second highest income generating year since 2003.
