Monthly Buzz: March 2009 Roundup

March has come to an end, and it has definitely been a great month, with a healthy growth for Techie Buzz, we want to thank our readers who have made this growth possible for us.


There were several things that went right for us in March and we would like to highlight them to our readers.

Basic Stats for March 2009

Traffic was consistent during the month of March and we did an almost equal to Feb traffic, however we did lose a bit of traffic over a week, due to several issues with our servers at Slicehost, however the problem was due to Apache server, and we have now put in place a automated monitor to take care of server outages and keep your visit to Techie Buzz as smooth as possible.

Another peculiar problem we are facing is with the Supercache plugin, which sets the first category page as the home page, however as a temporary solution we have a automated robot in place to address this issue.

Our feed subscribers grew by more than 400 users in this month with our updater @techiebuzzer gaining more than 30 new subscribers.

However we fell short of the 3000 feed readers we were aiming for, however we hope to make up for that in April, revenue grew 23% over Feb 2009, and we hope to add new advertisers for the month of April.
