  • Typically what I've learned from analytics are that most people who visit my site came in through searching google, and what's popular is normally something I wrote about another blogger, church, or book. So my most popular post for February, not surprisingly, was "Elevation Church’s – “This Is How We Change the World” documentary – watch online this week only"

    A couple of my bizarre keywords were aistra 2011 and loughton tucson.

  • Brilliant concept! Yes it’s a proven fact, developing links gives your site wider coverage by search engines. SEO Link Building that act like traffic magnets, increasing hits on your web pages. Thanks!

  • hi!,I like your writing so a lot! proportion we keep up a correspondence extra approximately your article on AOL? I need a specialist on this space to solve my problem. Maybe that is you! Having a look forward to see you.

  • Great post. I was checking continuously this blog and I'm impressed! Very useful info specifically the remaining phase 🙂 I deal with such information a lot. I was looking for this certain information for a very lengthy time. Thank you and good luck.


  • “Wow, I never thought about commenting as building my Alexa ranking, or any ranking for that matter. I’ve always commented on posts of friends and on strangers post I’ve enjoyed. And I’ve visited those who have visited me, because it feels rude not to. Mostly, I comment because I get a buzz out of comments on my blog. Leaving a comment is like leaving them a buzz, something to make them smile. Bigger bloggers like yourselves may have forgotten that simple thrill.

    Now, this post just gives me more incentive to look out of my usual blogging circle. The bad thing is, I’ve always read bigger blogs, but didn’t think adding my comment to the hundreds already there helped anyone. Who knew?

    Thanks so much Anne, and hey, awesome stats! You clearly give what your readers need. 🙂”

    Regards. Shubham
