So, March was a pretty rough month for me… my traffic went down on all of my sites! However, many people say that is extremely common and I know they are right. Looking back into my past years, March has always been a slower month. On the plus side, things should pick back up this month!
This is a thank you post to those that send me the most website visitors each month!
So, without further ado…
Thanks a million to my TOP Five blog referrals!
I received referral visits from 291 sources during last month! (This is up from last month’s 288 even if my traffic was down.)
1. Crystal and Company sent me 6,581 (This is about 3,000 less than last month! She was having site difficult all March and that, as you can see, hurt me as well!)
2. Org Junkie sent me 152 (This is about 100 down!)
3. Southern Mom Cooks sent me 130 (decided to include me this time – this is from my weekly linkies)
4. Susie QT Pies Café sent me 108 (not on the list last time – Yay, Susie!)
5. Deal Seeking Mom sent me 86 (Down from 144 the previous month)
I also want to note that:
- Pinterest sent me 8,427 (This is so far down from last month’s 22,082!! Because I didn’t have any good posts go viral this time. However, I am hoping to change that in April!)
- Twitter sent me 12 (Also down)
- FaceBook sent me 165 (Only a little down from the previous month’s 171)
- Stumble Upon 32 (Way down from the previous 81)
- Google sent me 2,550 (up from 1950 – so at least I have one thing right. )

Here’s how it works:
