Go over there right now and check out the screenshots of Dan’s graphs. I’ll wait.
I was intrigued by the huge spike in Dan’s graphs and the disproportionate number of referrals from StumbleUpon, so I dusted off my account and decided to give Dan’s tips a try. And you know what? Dan’s advice was spot on! Everything he said would happen, if his instructions were followed, worked.
So I had to write this follow-up post to show the proof. Below is a graph of visitors to my site as of January 22, mid-afternoon (orange bar). StumbleUpon referred five times as many people as WordPress Reader and three times as many as Facebook. The search engines referred only one visitor.
I received a notification from WordPress that my stats were booming and my blog was getting more traffic than usual.
