Monthly Buzz: May 2009 Roundup

The long awaited summer is finally arriving here are so are the stats for the month of May 2009, this month was pretty exciting since we started the to celebrate our 3rd birthday, which by the way is coming up soon :-)

However time to get back to telling the readers how we fared this month and what to expect in June. Here are all the interesting stuff we would want to let our users know from May 2009 :-).

Do let us know your thoughts and views on how we did and how we can further improve, your views are very important to us.


Stats For May 2009

Traffic in May 2009

May saw an increase in traffic by 12%, however pageviews decreased a bit which was concerning, we are working towards getting the pageviews back up, however it would be great if you as a reader could suggest changes that you would want us to apply to keep users browsing on the site, your opinion is very important and I would really appreciate it a lot.

The better news with regards to the traffic is that I am pretty confident that we will cross the 1 Million PVs per month in next couple of months, which is pretty exciting for me, don’t forget to give suggestions on how we can improve the navigation and keep users interested in browsing for more content.

Feed Subscribers in May 2009

As for regular readers the feed subscription grew by over 350 users which was good but we would still like to grow more, part of the feed subscribers we have may not be included in the current count, since the browser discovery was pointing to the direct feed and not the Feedburner feed, hopefully we should cross 3000+ subscribers this month.

Income in May 2009

As far as income goes, we switched around a few advertisers and have been selling several direct advertisements, which has helped us grow the income by a little bit more than 40%, once again it’s really good, however the income is still almost 50% away of my goal to consider to switch to full time blogging, hopefully it should happen pretty soon.

Important Announcements and Changes In May 2009

On several notes May was definitely pretty exciting considering the amount of things we did and were able to do, here is a summary of the most exciting things in May 2009.

Two New Concentrated Niche Blogs

Back in the day we always mixed up content which we though to change away a bit by expanding the network to cover individual niches that would give readers a better reading experience. We launched two different network sites that will focus on Mobiles and Gadgets.

Mobile Buzz

Mobile Buzz was the first one to go live, it basically focuses on everything related to mobiles including news, reviews, applications and more. Mobile Buzz is authored by me and Unitechy a engineering student who drools over mobiles and the telecom industry, I could not find a better fit for getting out the Mobile news.

Gadgets Buzz is primarily authored by Rajesh a cool guy who is studying and also a gadget freak, he is definitely someone who I trust would bring you the best news in the gadgets and hardware niche.
