I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Here’s how it works:
1.Go into your tracking service (I use Google Analytics) and set the time period for February 1st – February 28th.
2.Find the sites that have referred readers to you and put them in order from most sends to lowest. (I only do blogs and small businesses, not big sites!)
3.Write a post (like this one) listing your top 10 referrers.
4.Grab the Blogger Appreciation Day picture from 3 Boys & a Dog and add it to your site or post. (It is also nice to link back to my site, since I am giving you a link )
5.Link that post up in the LinkyTools at 3 Boys & a Dog.
All total, there were 105 referring sites listed when I ran my report on Google Analytics.
Here’s the top referring sites for me in February:
- The Legacy of Home ~ 72 visits
- TOS Homeschool Crew blog ~ 59 visits
- Homeschool Blogger ~ 46 visits
- Double Duty Divas ~ 22 visits
- Many Little Blessings ~ 22 visits
- Shibley Smiles ~ 22 visits
- Gun Loving Alaskan Catholic Club ~ 8 visits
- Heart of the Matter ~ 8 visits
- Defend Us in Battle ~ 7 visits
- Just Married with Coupons ~ 7 visits
Thank you so much to the bloggers out there who are sending people my way. While most of them are from things I have submitted (articles for carnivals or signing a blog hop form), I can say that #7 and #9 on my list are from blog rolls showing Catholic bloggers in Alaska on their sidebar. I’m in the process of creating a Blog Button ‘Love’ page and hope to have it live soon.
This is a fun meme for me and one I plan to do again next month. I wonder who’ll be sending readers our way….(and this statistics look is addicting! I’ll be looking at January just to see if there’s a change.)
