No Blog Post For September 2009

Wow, I can’t believe that I have not made any post for this month of September 2009. Well, I have been quite busy and somewhat lazy as well. But, I won’t tell you about the lazy, because I want you all to think that I work so hard and I’m always busy with work ;).

This month I started working on two new projects (that is, two new websites), that I’ve started from scratch. I was supposed to start only one of them, but the opportunity to start a second profitable project came in front of my eyeballs, so I grabbed it :).

In project one, I’m basically just using articles to promote the vendor’s product, which is the easiest thing to do. I also setup a blog but so far no posts have been made on the blog, so the blogging phase of the project is still pending.

For project two, the website is one a keyword-rich domain, so I am taking advantage of that fact to optimize the website (which is obviously powered by WordPress) to rank higher for Search Engines. So far, the website is ranking among the top ten results in Google for the main keyword which gets about 2500 searches per month.

I also had to update WordPress to the lastest version on all websites because there was a security issue with the previous version. Things move fast in an opensource community, so we have to stay updated if we don’t want ot be left behind.

P.S. I’m sorry, but I can’t reveal more information about the projects I’m working on, so don’t ask :P.

Hello Worldwide Visitors

countriesThe 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.
