Finally I decided to write a post on my traffic sources and how much actual traffic I got this month.
Though my traffic is not very appealing but I’m not in hurry because shoutmeloud blog traffic is increasing at constant speed. I believe in Slow and steady win the race .
If you remember we have given a warm welcome to the month of April be celebrating 1st april with the news :
and many of my good friends and regular readers fall for the April fool prank.
That post made me understand the responsibility I have and that made me keep moving.
Shoutmeloud blog traffic stats from 31st march to 3ost April.
Though you can see the bounce rate is high but this is from the whole month. I put Thesis theme on 16th of April and thanks to Thesis theme which actually helped me to increase the page views and lower down the bounce rate.
This is the traffic before I put thesis on my blog:
Before Thesis theme
You can clearly see the bounce rate is very high and page/visit is too low.
After Thesis Theme
You can clearly see the huge difference in the bounce rate and pages/visit. Probably last theme was one of the big factor for low traffic.
If this stats is tempting enough you to encourage buying thesis theme. You can use my referral link. If you need any help customizing thesis theme. Feel free to ask me.
Another factor which helped me to increase my pages/visits is Internal linking.
Along with yet another related post wordpress plugin , I manually enter the link to the relevant post. You can see an example on internal linking on my previous post:
Another good thing which happened for shoutmeloud is it’s alexa ranking
Alexa ranking as of May 1 : 37,554K
Another good news is our internal pages also got page rank. Though there are lots of variation like some of them got PR#1 and some of them got PR#2.
I’m not a hard core SEO guy but I have learned few things from my experiences, If you are interested you can refer to them

Though shoutmeloud has a long way to go. I will appreciate if you can give more insight on how to increase traffic and area of improvement for shoutmeloud.
