100,000 Monthly Visitors Challenge

alivebetter.com - homepage - 2019

On August 26, 2019, to my own and other people’s surprise, I decided to return to the AliveBetter blog.

During the previous 3 years of existence of the blog, it has not been particularly popular. My main goal for the next 12 months is to reach 100,000 visits a month on both my blogs in total. I do not hide, however, that I will strive to reach 100,000 monthly visits at www.alivebetter.pl and second 100,000 monthly visitors at www.alivebetter.com.

In the first week of each month I will update this article with traffic statistics for the previous month. So the first update will appear in early October 2019 and will apply to September 2019.

An additional curiosity is the fact that both of my blogs are hosted on shared hosting at SiteGround. It will allow me to show my readers how much traffic that hosting can handle.

Welcome to my blog again! 🙂

 

Update 1 – September 2019

 

Google Analytics – Traffic Statistics

 

In September 2019, the alivebetter.com blog gathered around 30,000 visitors.

Although the first two weeks were not such great, from mid-September blog traffic has increased dramatically in just 3 days!

So, as you can see – regular publishing of high-quality content, sharing them on social media profiles, and using appropriate plugins and tools brings the expected results. ?

The average time spent on the site is quite good. Of course, the higher the value here, the better for the owner of the blog ? Almost one minute is not the best and not the worst result.

In turn, the bounce rate is the percentage of people who left the blog after seeing only one of its subpages (without clicking any links to other subpages). In this case, the closer the value is to zero, the better.

Generally, a bounce rate below 50% is considered to be a good value. 33.90% is therefore a very good value.

Below are the statistics for the alivebetter.pl blog.

In September 2019, it was visited by slightly more than 1,100 people.

A clear increase in traffic can be seen on the last day of September.

The bounce rate on a Polish-language blog is very similar to that of the English version.

The time spent on the website is twice as long, which is great news for me. ?

 

Authority Of The Blog – DA, PA, DR, UR

 

The authority of any website is mainly evaluated using four values ​​- DA (Domain Authority), PA (Page Authority), DR (Domain Rating) and UR (URL Rating). The first two of them were developed by Moz, the other two by Ahrefs.

All 4 values ​​are measured on a scale of 0 to 100. The higher the value, the better. However, you should not expect to reach 99/100 or 100/100. In practice, values ​​from 70-80 and up are really very high and quite difficult and time consuming to achieve.

According to rankz.io DA and PA of alivebetter.com on October 1, 2019 is 33 and 26 respectively. For the blog alivebetter.pl it is 11 and 27 respectively.

DR and UR for alivebetter.com are 40 and 10.

For alivebetter.pl they are equal to 1.5 and 5.

Estimated Domain Value

 

One of the best tools for valuing Internet domains is Free Valuator.

On October 1, 2019, the value of the alivebetter.com domain is estimated at USD 316.58.

The value of the alivebetter.pl domain is estimated at just USD 7.85.

Server Load

 

SiteGround declares that the GoGeek server should handle up to 100,000 unique visitors per month. This declaration seems to be true, because with traffic exceeding 30,000 visits per month, the server load is still very low.

The next update of this article will appear at the beginning of November. Maybe all the values will go up, maybe down.

And that would be enough in the part regarding September. I invite you again to this article in a month, and in the meantime to read the rest of the published entries. ?
