It's been a little more than week since I started using Blogging Zoom
. Now, it's time to show off some statistics.
Show me the numbers
This my current stats
sent me 39 visitors so far(Google Analytics). Depending on how much traffic you already get, it could be a drop in a bucket. But for me, that is good.
My post John Chow is Losing $2082.49
only got Zoomed 2 times yet it sent me 7 visitors which is in first place with my A Real Review of Income 4 Beginners(Z5)
was Recruiting Bloggers, Advertising And Better Affiliates Program
which was Zoomed 7 times but sent me 5 visitors.
But my biggest indirect performer so far was Activating Adsense in Feedburner
which was Zoomed 6 times but it only sent me 2 visitors. I also wrote indirect because I think it was StumbleUpon because of it may have been found from Blogging Zoom
. SU sent me 49 visitors. I can't prove it but I can't even remember if I was ever StumbleUpon before. Paid StumbleUpon advertising
does not count.
So far, the 2 things(related) I don't like are:
- Forcing the 350 characters for the long description
- Not showing how many characters(350) was written
I understand perfectly(Vic, Court) the rational behind it but sometimes you may not care about being index on Google via Blogging Zoom
. You may just want to be read by the other Blogging Zoom users. It could be a simple post and I don't want to "rewrite" it again for the description. And looking at my stats, It's hard to say that I saw a huge difference so far. But I do like the additional traffic. :D
I would recommend that you add a check box that would disable the 350 characters minimum. Doing so, I think more people would submit post and yes, with a single line like in the beginning. You could add a small text on the impact of disabling the 350 characters. Just call it an extra that is strongly recommended. ;)
Or least add the number of characters like in the summary. It may help if people see that they are close to the 350 mark.
I know, you don't want to be another Digg and it's okay because you are supporting small bloggers like me with Blogging Zoom
. I would recommend Blogging Zoom
to other bloggers.
I also found 2 articles on the Universal Thread
that could be interesting for Blogging Zoom
and my fellow bloggers using it.
Want search engine traffic? Pen a blog
Why 350 characters is important for longer post
Digg to sell for $300 million? Really?
Are any shares of Blogging Zoom
