March 2012 Stats and Last Weeks Mentions
I know that most of us who blog are stats junkies so it is almost required that you feed the readers with some sort of stats occasionally. Below is my attempt to keep you all happy, plus it gives me an excuse to track these things on a monthly basis and publish them for all posterity.
|Avg Time on site||2:45||2:54|
As you can see, March was quite a growth month with visitors and pageviews up nearly 300%! It would be nice to think I can keep that torrid pace up going forward…we’ll see. Consistent with the growth in traffic there was a drop of over 170,000 in my Alexa rank and with momentum like that I’m sure I can break through 100,000 by the end of April.
On the negative side, time on site and bounce rate both took a small hit. They are still not bad, but I am hoping this isn’t the beginning of a downward trend.
In addition to the wonderful March I had here last week saw another large bunch of mentions around the interwebs. Thanks go out to all the sites below who were kind enough to mention Money Infant in one way or another:
