I’m very excited to announce that BloggingTips.com is back into the top 10,000 sites on Alexa. While Alexa isn’t the greatest stats in the world, it is a great way to see where your site is ranking in comparison to other sites on the internet. The big accomplishments for a web site or blog is when you break into the top 100,000 sites on Alexa for the first time, then 50,000 and 10,000.
This isn’t the first time BloggingTips.com has been in the top 10,000, but it’s been quite a while. I’ll be the first to say that I have quite a large amount of projects going on and haven’t been able to dedicate as much time to the site as I would like to.
In the chart below you will see the rapid growth and increase for BloggingTips.com in the past few months as I have begun to focus more time and effort on the site. Right now the site has a global rank of 9,945 and should crack into the top 10,000 U.S on Alexa soon enough.
However the good news is that I have a lot of cool things in the works for the blog that includes the following.
Meet the Bloggers Interview Series
Earlier in the year I started a “Meet the Bloggers” interview series which features two bloggers every weekend and allowed them to discuss their different ways of growing their site and how they monetize their blogs. I really liked how these interviews came out and we’ve done quite a few of them. Expect to see this series start up again next weekend.
Original WordPress & Blogging Infographics
I love infographics. They are a great way to share information and get traffic back to your site. The biggest problem with infographics is that they take a lot of time to create. I’m currently working with a team to have new and original infographics created for the blog on a weekly basis… though I wouldn’t be surprised if this ended up being once or twice a month as they take a lot of time to create and you also need to do the research on what the infographics are based on.
More Blog Posts from Myself
If you’ve been reading the blog over the past week or so, you will have noticed that there have been more posts from myself lately. I am going to try and keep this up and post at least 2-5 times per week. These posts will cover everything from social networking, blog monetization and how to continually grow your own personal brand.
Less Ads, More Content and Better Navigation
Something you will have also noticed over the years with BloggingTips.com is the vast changes with onsite advertising. We just removed the 300×250 ads that were appearing within the post content of the site and the only two ad spots that are left are the top 468×60 and the 300×250 at the end of the comments section. Revenue generation is not key for this site right now as I want to focus on content and growth. We may also see a new and improved BloggingTips.com design in the coming months as well.
BloggingTips.com is Moving to a New Server
With the increase in traffic and rankings for BloggingTips.com, it only makes sense to move the blog to an even more powerful and dedicated server. I will have a full post written on this later in the week once the transfer has taken place. It’s a great new service that I’m moving to and any of you with very large WordPress driven sites will find a lot of value in this upcoming post.
What would you like to see on BloggingTips.com?
At the end of the day, BloggingTips.com is only as good as the content on the site and the people who are reading it. Feel free to leave a comment on what you would like to see on BloggingTips.com and any other recommendations or comments about the topics I touched on above.
Thank you for making BloggingTips.com one of the top 10,000 sites in the world!
