Blogger Appreciation Day

by Stephanie Suesan Smith on October 6, 2010

It is time again for Blogger Appreciation Day, a day to thank those who send traffic your way the preceding month.  Kelli at 3boys and a Dog is organizing the linky for all who participate.

Most of my traffic comes from searches, not referrals.  However, there are some important blog sources as well.

1.  Donna Fontenot at referred the most people, at 18.  Donna is an SEO coach and all around nice person.

2.Gail at GrowMap referred 13 people to me.  She is really helpful if you want to grow your business and learn social media marketing.

3. Patricia at referred six people to me.  She is growing organic lavender down under and has a lot of interesting information available on her site.

4.  360skeptic referred four people to me.  I was in the Carnival of Evolution hosted on his site in September.

5. sent me three people.  I made some comments on her posts about organic gardening.

6. also sent me three people.  She has some beautiful photographs of Texana on her blog.

7. sent me two people.  Kristi Hines is an Internet Marketing Specialist and Kikolani is her blog.

8. sent me two people.  Gail did a very kind profile of me as a blogger who was improving rapidly.

9.  Melinda at sent me two people, as well.  I wish she would send someone to practice the art of simple home organization on my home!

10.  TycoonBlogger also sent me two visitors.  Have you checked out the rookie blogger contest he is running now?

Thanks to everyone who send me traffic this month.

I just wanted to pop in and commend you for taking the time to link to your fellow bloggers and to properly use anchor text. You are one of the few who truly understands why that is so very important.

I’ll share probably the most important post I’ve ever written on how to use anchor text effectively. If you’re a blogger reading this that post will definitely make a huge difference in your being successful.

Hey Steph, thanks so much for playing along again this month. 🙂 Isn’t it so fun to watch the numbers change from month to month and to be able to recognize those that send traffic your way?

Yes, thank you for hosting. I am looking at my numbers and realizing I need to reach out to more blogs and not rely so much on Google for traffic. I think I said that last time, too. Oops, better get busy.

Hi Stephanie
Wow, with my small niche I am really encouraged that some of my readers came across to your blog. You have some great information here and as some of my posts are on gardening, it is a delight to learn more from you too.

Thanks for visiting and leaving comments. I enjoy the scent of lavender and use it in my bedroom so am glad to find a place to learn more about it.
