Conclusion on my Traffic Report

Well my traffic has dropped quite a lot the last 3 months. One of the reasons for that, is that I have not been posting as many articles as I normal do. I have struggled a bit with the motivation and inspiration to come up with new ideas for blog post. That is somethings I think most bloggers experiences from time to time.

    Hey Thomas,

    It seems great. You are receiving the organic traffic a lot. I am sure it would boost more with the time.

    People forget about the SEO but they should try to learn about it to get indexed in the Google.

    Great post.
    Have a nice day.

  2. It is really big thing for me to drive traffic to my blog…!

  3. Hi Thomas, My traffic has dipped a bit too. I’m wondering if there isn’t a lull in the tech world. There’s always something to write about with tech, but the days of daily exciting tech news seem to be dwindling.

    20% of my traffic came from social media. Pinterest continues to be a huge source of traffic for me, representing 60% of my social media traffic.

    Thanks for sharing your stats, Thomas. Always interesting!
