It’s been a good month stats-wise here on WPLift – our traffic levels continue to recover from the last Google update so I can consider us back to normal now. This is a great relief so I can focus again on the site and content rather than having to worry about what to do about search engines! Here’s our stats for July 2012 …

Im glad things seem back to normal so I can start thinking about growing the site again – I have the planned redesign coming up which I hope to launch before December this year, I have a new free theme to release – that should be this month as I’m almost done. I’d also like to employ more writers so we can up our content rate, if you’d like to write for us then get in touch with samples of your previous work.

How did your sites do in July ? Let us know in the comments …

  1. That’s really great.. I think you blog deserves much more than this. But one suggestion, don’t put linkbacks in your theme, as they will hamper your SERP ( as i think ).
    Best of luck

    Need to do this type of post when I launch my new blog. :)

    Btw, something is wrong. On your screenshot you have 198,698 pageviews but you claimed below that you only have 149,971 ?

  3. OH that is great your site is actualy coming back :) page views are awesome.

    Your monthly recap is so helpful, it’s always a good source of inspiration for other writers. I’m glad to see that it pays off too. Good luck.
