In this post, Alex shows us that sometimes, attracting pageviews isn’t rocket science, which you might be forgiven for thinking if you follow this blog regularly:
Unlike my colleagues Alistair and Sean, I’m no analytics expert. But like all bloggers and social media enthusiasts I have an interest in sharing ideas about technology and society, and getting those ideas out to as many people as possible.
I’ve been exploring ways to get more traffic to my personal blog, and yesterday stumbled upon something quite remarkable. In one day I was able to achieve 2,579 new pageviews, a 1,176% increase in traffic. And all it took was about 30 minutes of effort.
