May seems to have flown by this year. It was a busy month for me offline. I went to visit my family in St. Thomas at the beginning of the month for a week. And I have been hard at work on my new website that’s going to detail some of my traffic and SEO techniques for building blogs into popular and successful sites. With those two things taken up most of my time, I haven’t had the time to changes a few things here on xorsyst.com. However I am prioritizing and I am finishing up a few things here before I begin to dive back into my other projects.
With that said, I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that May was the first month I didn’t double my traffic. 200,000 pageviews was my goal for May. However I knew from the beginning that it was an unrealistic goal. Still, the good news is that I had my best month so far!
May saw a total of 125,827 pageviews, with around 98,743 unique visitors (uniques from AWStats, pageviews from WordPress Stats) My Alexa rating has dropped dramatically’s from last month’s 132,538. My current Alexa traffic rank is 68,586. And from the below stats, I can expect to drop even more by the next update. My Feedburner readers have also increased. Last month I was at 190 readers. As I write this now, I am at 259.
Thanks to all of my new and faithful readers for making May the best month yet on xorsyst.com! I don’t expect as many interruptions in June as I had in May, so I know I will be closer to hitting that 200,000 pageview goal.
One new stats program that has totally replaced the usefulness of Google Analytics is Woopra. That’s my daily stats program that I have running 24/7 in my system tray. If you have never heard of Woopra, prepared to be amazed when you check out their website. I can’t even begin to know where to start with what Woopra offers. So here’s a video that explains it pretty well. It’s still in beta, and they are inviting people regularly. Sign up for an account, and add your site. You should be in the beta in no time.
