A very strange thing happened on my blog during the month of August.
On the 20th July I posted about this lovely crochet make.
You can find this amazing free Gecko pattern by Raphaela Blumenbunt here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/gecko-frecko
I pinned the Gecko image from my blog to my crochet Pinterest board with a link to my blog. It was immediately repinned and then it jetted off around the world!
I literally received hundreds of views daily. This in turn led to me receiving a lovely email from Raphaela thanking me for directing so much new traffic to her pattern.
I could tell from my stats page where my additional visitors were coming from. I could see that this pin had been repinned literally hundreds and hundreds of times, all over the world.
This has improved my viewing statistics no end allowing me to reach into a potential vast new audience.
So if you want more visitors you just have to find that one inspirational project photo (easier said than done), pin it and watch it fly!
Has anything you have done caused an interesting surge in numbers?
It seems to have all calmed down again now. My figures are back where they were about 4 weeks ago. I have a huge peak on my graph that I put down to Gecko Madness.
Love, Lucie xx
