RSS contest update

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

These two weeks I have surprised myself by being able to write rather constantly, which is a definitive improvement over previous one and half year absence. Kick-start for such a U-turn in my ways was a fun little contest called Blogging Idol, you really have to go and check the logo on Daniel’s site. The contest is about increasing the RSS subscriber count during one month. Well, I didn’t even have RSS-subscription button, so I added one and now I seem to have two loyal readers :)

I haven’t done anything special to explode my numbers, except writing few posts and adding a call to action (subscribe to my feed) to couple of posts. Still, I am really happy to my development, this has done lot of good for the site already, and looks like I can keep it going. Future plans regarding the contest are to post regularly and nothing more. Oh yeah, having run the site for years without any monetization, I acted on a whim (John Chow’s post about Kontera) and added Kontera contextual advertising on the site. It will probably take a year to earn enough money to cover domain cost. I don’t even dream about

There has been one major setback though, before this recent revitalization, site got about 50 unique visitors per day, but now with my sudden burst of new content and selective dead link cleaning… I’m close to zero search engine visitors. Goodbye organic traffic from Google, luckily Yahoo traffic still remains. Oh, go figure. So, time for the next log home post.
