Crystal & Co., received some great traffic during the month of January. We started the year off right with a bang reaching 140,000+ pageviews in the month of January.
Are you too a blogger? Do you ever look at your analytics to see which posts are your most popular? I like to look at it each month and see what my top ten posts are. By doing this it helps me to see what posts my readers like, what posts are bringing new readers to my site via Google searches as well as helps me see which topics I should continue to share on my site.
This is how I am getting traffic to my site:
- Participate in linky parties. These are the 50+ parties I link up to each week.
- Guest posting on other sites. I love to share my recipes round ups and craft round ups on other sites.
- Sharing my work on social media channels like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Are you following Crystal & Co., over on these places?
If you are a new blogger and you are wanting to drive more traffic to your site, I highly recommend you start doing the three tasks just mentioned. Check out all of my blogging tips as well for more pointers.
