Something very odd has happened this month. I don’t know why.
On January 4, my search engine traffic increased by about 40%. I have no idea why. I have done nothing that I know of that would have increased traffic. I’m still a long way from my 2010 goal, but it is a nice bump considering I didn’t have to do a thing to get it.
On January 18 I had my largest traffic day every. Nothing unusual happened to cause the traffic boost. Since I hit that one day traffic record, I’ve been above that level every single day. Getting raw traffic was the hardest of my 2009 goals, but it looks like I’ll hit 150,000 visits and 250,000 pageviews in January and be on a run rate for 180,000 visits in a 30 day period. Crazy. In fact, in the last week I had 51,000 visits, which is more than I had in an entire month just as late as September.
So, I’m riding a nice wave at the moment, and I just need to keep it going.
