Thanks for the Hits! June 2009 Traffic Numbers

Halfway through July and I haven’t even posted June’s traffic numbers? Sheesh!

As for content, I thought I was getting back into the writing groove in June. I had at least one article each week day until the end of the month hit and we got back into traveling, or people visiting on weekends. Plus, I realized I’m very behind in my school work and had to make the executive decision to do homework instead of write. Ugh. Only a few more months to go before I graduate!

Traffic Sources

At a high level:

Search Engines: 60% (up from 55% in May)

Referring Sites: 23% (down from 28%)

Direct Traffic: 17%

  1. StumbleUpon (in the #10 spot of all referrers. #1-9 are search engines or PF blogs)
  2. Twitter
  3. Zen Habits
  4. Facebook (yep, Clever Dude is now on Facebook!)
  6. US News
  8. Daily Blog Tips
  9. Personal Finance at

Again, thanks to all my readers, fellow bloggers, commenters, search engines and scrapers for making this site such a success!
