seoAlongside my Monetize Your Blog posts, I am also providing 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! And if you’re a blog who reaches the top 30, you get a free link as a thank you! :)

StumbleUpon continued to gain traffic again this month. And Yahoo search, for some reason, went from 500 to 2200 visits – nice! Google also sent an additional 2400 visits this month. Other than that, everything is pretty much the same with a few sites switching places on the list.

Until next month…

    You get quite a bit of traffic from the free/giveaway aggregate sites, that is something that not all bloggers are able to do but works great for your site.
