Find out how the web visits and other key stats panned out now that the 100,000 web visits in a month blogging challenge is finished.
I went for the BHAG goals of 100,000 web visits in a one month period and ended up with nearly 50,000.
In reality that’s about the number that I thought I’d achieve but I pulled 100,000 out of the air because it sounded much bigger and better. I’m not making excuses though, I did everything I could to get to 100K and will incorporate all the things I learned into a plan to go for it again in January 2014. In the meantime I’ll keep adding content and sharing it, adding new keywords and building my community.
Here are the final numbers:
Articles published during the period: 108
Direct Traffic: 12,240
Organic Visits: 28,614
Unique Visitors: 42,809
Total Pageviews: 69,320
In next week’s article I’ll share the key things I learned during the blogging challenge.
