How I Grew My Blog by 500%
How I Grew My Blog by 500%
I started this blog to give me something to do while I was recuperating from knee surgery. I wasn’t overly concerned if anyone actually read it because I enjoyed the process of creating the projects and blogging about them so others could create them too.
I still enjoy the process but this past month I decided to become serious about my blog and wasn’t sure how to go about getting people to actually read it. I’m not sure how but I came across Megan Johnson and her Ebook Pinterest Ninja. She guaranteed that following her program would increase my blog traffic or I would get my money back.
Well, I thought I might as well give it a try and if it doesn’t work I will get reimbursed. The only proviso was that I put all of her tips into practice. So, I bought the book and proceeded to read it carefully. I implemented all of her tips and tricks and to my utter amazement I have grown my website page views by 500% in my first month of implementation.
In fact, if you are reading this post because you came here from Pinterest it is because of Megan and Pinterest Ninja that you are here and that I am able to provide this testimonial.
At this point in my blogging career Pinterest is now by far the greatest referrer of traffic to my website when it used to be Facebook. Prior to Megan’s book my only interaction with Pinterest was through a plugin that automatically posts my pins to Pinterest and other social media sites.
It never occurred to me that Pinterest was anything more than just posting pictures of my projects. I could not have been more wrong. There is a whole pinning strategy involved in using Pionterest to gain blog traffic. Who knew? Well I know now and the proof is in my Google Analytics stats. I have had a 500% increase in blog traffic that I can attribute solely to Megan’s techniques.
