Monthly Blog Stats & Helpful Hints

So lets get busy making your blog grow!

I reported last month that I would be telling you about what changes were coming along with my blog and the problems it was having.  I knew my blog had some issues back in January, but I didn’t know it was worse than I thought.  I was still able to do posts and go as normal, but the blogs working components were suffering.

I needed help to find out what was going on and thats when I met MaAnna with BlogAid.  She will do an audit of your site and let you know what is going on.  After the audit, I found out my blog was hacked.  I already knew that my server had been infected with a DDOS and from that my blog now has a dedicated domain.

Right now, MaAnna and I are going over a list of items that need to be taken care of on my blog.  Better security is priority number 1.  She talks with you in a way you can understand totally.  BlogAid is wordpress for non-geeks.  I love that.  You learn from her help.

By now you have noticed my blog appearance has changed.  I realized that my website was not mobile ready and my Google analytics was reporting this.

And then there is this.

On April 21, Google will begin rolling out a worldwide mobile-friendly algorithm update that will have a “significant impact” on mobile search results for mobile searchers. In essence, if your ecommerce site does not pass Google’s mobile friendly test, there’s a real possibility that Google will send you fewer mobile search customers after April 21.

Google is the King when it comes to searches finding your website and if you are trying to make an income with your website, then we have to follow the rules.  So I now have a fully responsive and mobile ready website.  You can check to see if your website is mobile friendly by doing this test.

I wasn’t really going for the April 21st date to update my site, but after having the audit and knowing there were going to be some changes, I thought I might as well do it all at the same time.

Please check more into your website being mobile friendly and see if its right for you to make changes too.

I am hoping next month to give more of an update.

  1. My website tested as mobile friendly! Thanks for that link. I’m working hard to get my monthly page views up as well.

    1. HI Julie and welcome. The first time I did that test I failed on all parts. Ugh. My poor blog has been through it the past few months. Thanks for stopping by

  2. Love your new design, and I didn’t know of that place where you can check if your website is mobile responsive. I thought mine was, and it is. Phew! Don’t want to change themes any time soon. So glad MaAnna could help you–I also need to figure out Blogher. I’ve tried. I don’t know what I am doing wrong.

    1. Thanks Tammy. Not really much different. But I LOVE pink and it seems cleaner now. I know you went through some stuff with your other theme and glad your blog is going strong. I love your theme too.

    2. Love the new theme!! I just changed mine and the you picked was actually what I was going to go with but switched at the last minute! We must both have good taste! 🙂

  3. Congrats on your stats! Ugh. The mobile thing gets me. I resisted for awhile because I personally would rather go to the regular format… But I guess that’s the minority of users out here so I finally relented. You are absolutely correct, if you want Google love, you have to play by the rules.

    1. Jenn, I felt the same way. The format of my old blog I thought looked pretty good. But all the feed back I was getting was the font wasn’t readable, etc. If no one could read the blog on their devices, then whats the use. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I love seeing post like this! It’s really motivating. I have a goal of 30,000 pv this month and at least 1000 in blog income. I was close last month but I didn’t’ blog that much.

    Thanks for being a part of SGBC !

  5. This was very informative and an interesting read. Thanks for sharing your numbers! I think I need to do some work on my blog and figure out how to make it profitable. 🙂

  6. Wow! Thanks for the link. I have a lot of changes I need to make to mine and the thought of that is so overwhelming to me at the moment.

    1. I had no idea how sick my blog was until BlogAid looked at it. Its running so much better now. Sometimes we need to have the experts take over

      1. That’s pretty much where mine is at. Lol. I have big plans but not enough time to learn all the ins and outs.

  7. I keep my stats but I haven´t made a public update this year. Too much content to blog about! 😀
    I really like the new look. I chose a responsive theme last year so I´m good to go. 🙂
