Blogger Appreciation Day: April 2010

Time flies, doesn’t it?  This was supposed to go up on the 3rd…. how on earth did it get to be the 5th so quickly?

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go into your tracking service (I use Google Analytics) and set the time period for April 1st – April 30th.
  2. Find the sites that have referred readers to you and put them in order from most sends to lowest.
  3. Write a post (like this one) listing your top 10 referrers. (I should really get a pretty graphic made for this, huh?)
  4. Link that post up in my MckLinky below.  (Please do not list your current giveaways!! I had to delete a ton from the 40 Days/Elmer’s posts. )

(It is also nice to link back to my site, since I am giving you a link :-))

  1. What a great idea!!
    .-= lynn @ Maven of Savin´s last blog ..NEW $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon =-.

  2. I love this – I just don’t know how to figure it out!?
    .-= Anne -Mommy Has to Work´s last blog ..Social Parade – Google Friend Connect =-.

    • @Anne -Mommy Has to Work, Do you have Google Analytics on your blog? If so, go into your Google Analytics account and go to traffic sources. Click “referrals” and there ya go. If not, get Google Analytics installed so you can play next month. :-)

  3. I went to sign up and install it. It looks like I have to install a code onto each post I want tracked? Does that sound correct? Thre must be an easier way?!

  4. thank you so much!! I’ll see you next month, if not sooner!

  5. Great post! I think this is really neat to do. I signed up for Google Analytics last month when I saw this so that I could participate this time. I did it with both of my blogs. I can’t wait to see how it changes through May!

    Great idea, I participated. I’m not a great graphic artist but I made a button if you want to send me an email, I’ll send it to you so you can see if you want to use it or not. I won’t be offended if you don’t.

    Nice post…Thank you for sharing some good things!!

  9. MBTshoes says:

    Many people have heard of health shoes, but don’t know what they are and they are asking the question, “What is a pair of health shoe?” A pair of health shoe contributes to general health. This doesn’t mean your feet will absorb some magical supplement that will make you healthy when you wear a health shoe. What it does mean is that when you wear a pair of health shoe, it will contribute to you being healthier. Health shoes are also known as fitness shoes and walking shoes.

  11. Really nice design and wonderful written content , absolutely nothing else we want : D.

  12. You may also find that an independent cleaning service will be less expensive than hiring a company to do the job.
