It’s time for out monthly stats roundup, been a strange one this month. Started out slow and just as I thought traffic was picking up again from Google, these last 3 days have been a lot lower than normal. I know that Google is making some changes at the moment with their new algorithm so I guess I just have to wait for things to settle down again. The numbers this month aren’t too far off last months, last month had an extra day as well so taking that into account this month has been fine.

Traffic is a little disapointing again this month – no one likes to see their traffic stagnate which is what has happened these past two months – before then we were growing every month. I suppose I should be happy that my rankings haven’t tanked completely like some sites I’ve been reading about. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t do any sort of link building or SEO, I focus 100% on creating content and hopefully the links follow – this has worked for me so far. A quick word about the income – this month was the highest income-wise so thats something pleasing allthough Im more concerned with growing the traffic than making money at this point.
How was last month for your sites ? Did your Google traffic change at all ?
