My Traffic

As you might know my goal with this blog is to take it from zero to 10K daily visitors in one year (by December 2013). On this page I’ll update my progress traffic wise on an ongoing basis.

Update 12/23/12

This is my first traffic update about 1 month into the project. As you’ll see from Google Analytics below I’m so extremely far from my goal:

Visitors - Stats from Google Analytics

As of now 10 visitors a day equals party time – but I don’t worry just yet. It’s all part of the plan. During my first month I actually haven’t spend time building traffic. My focus has been on building the foundation;

  • Getting the right domain name and web hosting provider
  • Setting up e-mails and WordPress blog (using the Standard Theme which is excellent)
  • Setting up my newsletter with Aweber.com
  • Designing a logo and business cards
  • Setting up Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ accounts
  • Writing my first 10 blog posts

During the rest of December and January I’ll look into the following tasks;

  • Be more active on Twitter
  • Actually build some traffic (I have a few linkbaiting ideas)
  • Write more blog post
  • Look for a freelance writer to help me write more solid content

  1. Good luck to you Jacob. 10,000 visitors in one year seems like a big undertaking, so I wish you the best of luck. I’ve got a top notch writer in mind. Email me if you’re interested.
