May is Best Month Ever - Break 100,000 Page Views.
Unique Visitors - 42,772
Traffic from Search Engines - 38,189 (83.36%)
Page Views - 111,532
111,532 Page Views in May
Page views are up 200% compared to March.
You can see that the trend for visitors is decreasing toward the end of the
month. That is due to the seasonal nature of my web site and the interest in
the articles on landscaping and gardening.
Search engine traffic represents 83% of my traffic. I think that shows my
ability at SEO. The exciting thing about search engine traffic is once you have
optimized a page you don't have to keep doing it over and over. You watch your
numbers and you may need to tweak a page here and there. But, for the most part
you don't have to keep pumping the pump.
One of the problems I have with the Entrecard model is it requires you to keep
doing something everyday to drive traffic to your website. As you can see my
direct traffic has slowed to just 5% of my traffic. That is mainly because I
have stopped dropping large numbers of Entrecards each day. If you have the
time then that's great. But, for me with summer here, I need to be outdoors.
So, search engine optimization is the key for me. If you need some tips on

I hope your numbers for the month are also improving. If you are looking for
