Where Did You Come From, Where Did You Go (April 2008)

This article was written by in Administration. 3 comments.

It’s time to thank other websites that sent traffic to Consumerism Commentary during the month of April. It was a great month in terms of traffic, driven mainly by articles about the economic stimulus payment. Here is a list of websites, excluding search engines, RSS readers, and social media websites, that sent the most traffic to Consumerism Commentary over the past month. I’ve also included a number to show each site’s movement on the list since March.

  1. Lifehacker 0
  2. Get Rich Slowly 0
  3. The Simple Dollar +3
  4. Blueprint for Financial Prosperity +1
  5. MoneyBlogNetwork -2
  6. AllFinancialMatters +1
  7. Consumerist -3
  8. Free Money Finance 0
  9. AllTop new
  10. No Credit Needed -1
  11. Five Cent Nickel 0
  12. Fabulous Financials -2

Here are the top 10 visited articles from the top month, based on visits to the web site. Readers who view articles in their RSS software but don’t visit the website directly are not included when calculating this list. Once again, the Economic Stimulus Tax Payment Calculator was my far the most visited page, but it’s not included below because that article was posted initially in January.

Speaking of, I should say thanks Flexo, somehow in the past 2 weeks I have gone from no traffic from CC to almost 5% of my daily traffic from you. Im not sure why the big jump (its different articles) but thanks ;)

Just curious: do you use Google Analytics to generate that second list?

Jesse: Cool! It may be due to the pfblogs.org blogroll and popular feed.

Trent: Yes, I use Google Analytics for assembling this info.
