April saw our site grow a little bit more. Site traffic was up around 10% and although that is slightly under what we were up last month the percentage gets harder to increase as you get more visits month after month.
I would be very happy to have a 10% gain every month but that is getting harder and harder each month.
Last months server change happened pretty smooth except for one part. Our confirmation emails that go out for featured ads only goes out when it feels like it. It has been driving me crazy for a few weeks and it seems like no matter what change I make it doesn’t help. I think it is a Paypal glich on their end and nothing I can do helps. This has been my on going struggle for the past few weeks and I will continue to work on it.
Lets talk stats:
Facebook page went from 41,600 to 45,000 fans. I am continuing to see Facebook delete some dead accounts as the stats move by a lot on some days but we are still getting more fans every month so thats good. While every one else is complaining about site reach on their fan pages ours goes from 25k to 55k on a daily basis.
Twitter Page went from 10,700 followers to 10,900 followers. I went in and deleted a ton of old accounts that were not interacting with our page. Guess a lot had bots unfollow me for doing that. We still gained 200 followers.
Google+ Page has been growing but Google has been slowly talking about breaking up the social network. We are up to 749 followers and 183,641 views.
Our newsletter went from 4600 to 4800. Haven’t really pushed it as I should be doing. I will take 50 new subscribers each week.
