So this month I already published our monthly income report and now it’s time for monthly traffic report. Our traffic has gone down by a significant number in past 2-3 months and before I will share how it happened and how is it good for the future of ShoutMeLoud. Lets, check our traffic report:
Our total visits remain the same compare to our old traffic report but the traffic growth is too less compare to old months.
Why ShoutMeLoud traffic dropped and how is it good?
So you might be thinking how traffic drop is good for ShoutMeLoud. If you are a regular reader of ShoutMeLoud, you must be aware that we have turned ShoutMeLoud into a niche blog for MMO, Blogging and SEO tips. We have stopped covering all latest articles and news on Technology and such posts are being published on CallingAllGeeks now.
The reason it’s good because now our traffic is more targeted and therefore it significantly increased my affiliate incomes, more conversation and number of advertisers. We have also raised our ad slot price by 25% and despite of that, all our ad slots are sold at this moment. (Check BSA)
Also due to my busy time-schedule I can’t comment on many blogs which used to contribute at least 7-8% traffic every month. I will be trying to get back to my commenting spree soon, but for now overall the traffic drop is good and now our traffic started increasing considerably.
One major thing which impacted my traffic drop is because of lack of SEO Smart link plugin, I’m 40% dependent on this plugin for SEO optimization of ShoutMeLoud and other blogs in the network but seems like free version is not well optimized for large blogs. Finally I grabbed premium version of SEO smart link and now I can see the significant increase in traffic for certain keywords which I have been targeting.
Though I’m trying to increase the set of targeted keywords and increase the traffic of ShoutMeLoud in coming days. But the good thing is with time, we have developer many niche blogs and you can check out other blogs at: WpHostingDiscount, LetsTalkRelations, Chromoz, Thesis Customization Service and CallingAllGeeks.
More over in coming days, I will be coming up with many contest and giveaway for ShoutMeLoud readers, Don’t forget to subscribe to our Email newsletter to be the first one to get to know about the contest.
