Benchmarks August 23, 2007Posted by caveblogem in blogging, Other, Wordpress.
I came back from vacation and forgot to note that this blog passed its one-year anniversary earlier this month. So there’s that. And the day before yesterday it passed its 20,000 page-view mark, which is nice. WordPress put together some neat new charts that allowed me to look back at the number of page-views weekly and monthly for the year, which showed exactly what I thought: As soon as I stopped actively commenting on other sites traffic on this site declined dramatically.
Unfortunately, my comments on other wordpress sites are captured as spam. Indeed, my own responses to comments on this site are treated as spam. Don’t know what to do about this, but it is discouraging. Commenting seems fairly pointless when you know your words are going into the Viagra bin. Anyone else having this problem?
