Where Did You Come From, Where Did You Go :: March 2008

by derek on March 31, 2008 · 6 comments

The last Monday of each month, I like to use the Speedlinking series to highlight the top ten blogs that referred the most traffic – where did you come from – and the top ten most visited posts for the month – where did you go.
Thanks to the following blogs who sent the most readers this way during the month of March.

Top 10 Referring Sites

  1. Courtney Tuttle
  2. 45n5.com
  3. Leo Chiang
  4. Zen Habits
  5. eMoms at Home
  6. More Merchant
  7. Dave Pitlyuk
  8. Great Prices Here
  9. Postcards from the Funny Farm
  10. Shoemoney

Here are the top 10 visited articles from the past month, according to the statistics from Google Analytics. Regularly reviewing your most popular content is a great way to monitor the type of content that “clicks” with your readers and might just provide you with a few surprises along the way.

Top 10 Visited Posts

  1. Longevity Research :: Stop Aging In Its Tracks
  2. How To Record A Cellphone Conversation
  3. Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
  4. Famous People Named Derek
  5. Dirty Dozen :: Celebrating One Year
  6. Want A New Way To Monetize Your Blog?
  7. Pictures :: Aftermath of Exploding CD
  8. How To Record A Video Tutorial For Your Blog
  9. Most Unique Long Tail Search Hits
  10. Can You Record A Cellphone Conversation?

Each month when I review the list of the most visited posts, there is usually a pretty healthy mix of older posts along with more current posts. It is very interesting to monitor your top posts as you never really know what content is going to receive the most attention.
This month there were a handful of new additions to the most visited posts while some posts that had made the list for multiple months have fallen out of the top ten. Take a look and let me know which was your favorite post from the month of March.
Thanks again to each and every one of you for being an active member of the community. Your participation is truly appreciated and I look forward to another exciting month in April.

I love 45n5’s “Money Links” not for the traffic, but because there are always interresting articles for me on that page.
