I launched this blog on the 12th of November. The blog started off the usual way everyone begins. I had given a few statistics in my first post promising to return to it every month to gauge the growth. I have to admit the blog has taken off very well and that I am happy with the 18 days progress report. So, let us recap the figures:
- Alexa Rank – 2,176,961 -> 880,401
- Google PR – NA – Same
- Backlinks – 0 -> 120
- Technorati – 3+ million -> 461,000
- RSS Subscribers – 0 -> 97
Ok Ok, I agree the RSS Subscribers shot up because of the contest. Nevertheless, it was an achievement that cannot be ignored. Apart from this, 3 days back one of my articles was featured on the front page of Shoutwire sky rocketing the visitors from 70+ to 700+ for 3 days. It was again a positive feeling and a healthy motivation to continue.
Today is the first week of the contest and I have picked up 2 winners at random. The first winner is Laura Williams for a $25 gift certificate from Amazon.com. The prize was sponsored by Muhil Jayaraman from Halomark.biz, a blog about Technology. Laura, Muhil has already emailed your gift certificate to your Yahoo address. Kindly confirm upon reception in the comments section. Second prize goes to Barbetti from barbetti.wordpress.com. Barbetti, you have won a set of ebooks. I will email it to you in 24 hours.
Congrats to both the winners and looking forward to next week. Good Luck all.
For December, I plan to continue as usual with one exception. I will be posting once every 2 days rather than everyday. This is mainly because of my tight schedule at Royal Forex. The company has expanded to
I also plan to open up Guest Blogging area. Dee Wilson opened up the category with her article on Social Marketing. Excellent writing
I will be releasing my book on Monday night to the public. Be sure to subscribe to my RSS to stay updated. This is one book you shouldn’t miss. Best of all, it comes at no cost to you. Stay tuned for the announcement.
With this, I conclude this post. Have a great weekend everybody.
