Thanks for the Hits! May 2009 Traffic Numbers
What happened to May? Where’d it go? Just a month ago, I was finishing up the Spring semester, which was horribly stressful, and now it feels like it was ages ago. And now I’m already 2 days into my summer class (technically it started a month ago since it’s my capstone project).
Well, it’s time for some numbers for the very merry month of May. Thanks to some serious amount of travel in the last 2 months, I barely eked out 14 articles in May, but it’s better than I thought I would do. And I’m already up to 3 for June (counting this one). Am I getting back into the groove? Maybe I’m just procrastinating from doing my school work?
At a high level:
Search Engines: 55% (down from 67% in April)
Referring Sites: 28% (up from 18%)
Direct Traffic: 17%
Top Personal Finance Blog Referrers
And now to what everyone (or at least every PF blog) reads this article for: my top referrers for May. You’ll see last month’s rank after the new rank in (). If they weren’t ranked last month, you’ll see a (-).
- (-) The Simple Dollar (with a whole 12% of my total traffic!)

- (-) Squawkfox (Congrats on the new book!)
- (4) No Credit Needed

Top Non-PF Blog Referrers
Since this list is usually made up of search engines, I’ve decided to show non-PF blogs AND non-search engines!
- StumbleUpon (in the #10 spot of all referrers. #1-9 are search engines or PF blogs)
- Zen Habits
- Dumb Little Man
- Twitter (#23 overall)
- US News
Again, thanks to all my readers, fellow bloggers, commenters, search engines and scrapers for making this site such a success!
