Blog Traffic...Where does it come from?

Blogging update: I have been blogging for almost 2 months now and I am loving it. I have found that with time traffic to my blog has increased. When I first started I wondered how much traffic "mommy blogs" get and now I have some statistics, which I get from Google Analytics.  I also use the statistics from Blogger, but Google Analytics is a more detailed.  The first month I had:

195 Visits
899 Pageviews
4.61 Pages/Visit
47.69% Bounce Rate
00:07:19 Avg. Time on Site
55.38% % New Visits

So, the next question is where is the traffic coming from?  I have been to numerous "mommy blog" social networking sites.  The sites that have sent me the most traffic in my first month of blogging have been:

1.  Mom Bloggers Club (MBC) - A network with over 11,000 mom bloggers!

2.  Twitter 

If you want to build on your blog traffic, once you join these networking sites, you need to network.  Join some of the groups, start discussions and share your blogs!

  2. Hello and thanks for the comment! My first comment on this blog:) When you register with Google Analytics, you should get a html tracking code to enter into the body of your site under the design section of your blog. Let me know if that was helpful:) You can e-mail me if you have anymore questions at: busymomibee@gmail.com
