seoAlong with my Monetize Your Blog posts, I also wanted to provide you with my top 20 traffic sources each month. I use Google Analytics to track my blog traffic. Use this information however you wish, but hopefully it will give you an idea of how people find my blog, and potentially, your blog too!

February 2011 Report (displayed as source / medium and # of visits)

1. google / organic 6,226 (this is just plain ole google search)
2. (direct) / (none) 2,007 (people who type my URL in their browser)
3. / referral 1,222 (another google search?)
4. / referral 880 (over 700 more than last month!!)

I’ve really started focusing on Stumble Upon and it shows. I’m up over 700 visitors from last month just from Stumble Upon alone! One new search engine and a new blog are also on the list. Other than that, everything is pretty much the same with a few changes here and there.

Until next month…
