The blog has been on the web for just one week, and I have already had visitors from 11 countries worldwide. That’s why I find blogs(especially WordPress blogs) so awesome. If I had put up a static website, I’d probably still be the only one reading it.
Well, that does not mean static websites should be banned. They have their purpose too, but if you want immediate web traffic, blogging is the way to go. By default, WordPress “pings” some services to notify them that a blog has been updated. That alone will bring a few visitors to the blog. Anyways, I won’t get into the technical details of why blogs get traffic easily.
The statistics of the blog are provided by Awstats, a nice little traffic monitoring tools that comes with my hosting service.
