Thanks to Google.com, Yahoo.com, and Retrevo.com I've seen some very decent traffic movements over the last week. I doubt to see a 34% increase every 7 days, but it's quite welcome if they want to keep sending those to me! I've published quite a few new articles and a couple of new blog updates (Although I should be doing more!). Work and school have been bearing down on me which has slowed my content production. I'll keep you posted on how things are looking over the next couple of weeks. August 11th is approaching fast it seems.

So traffic has staggered greatly in the past two days. I've only seen a 5.3% pageview increase, I'm hoping this is just due to the weekend slowing things down. I've been working with the Bing.com search engine lately and trying to get things cooking over there. My page ranks are low because they are so new, but I should hopefully see some better rankings coming along soon. It could be worse, I could have no rank at all! I still haven't gotten around to working with the yahoo search engine, and Google isn't liking my sitemap, despite the fact that they are the ones who generated it! That's been my whole weekend basically. Have a great day.

My standing on June 11th was a total of 1340 pageviews, I'm now at 1715. This represents a 28% increase in just two days. I imagine that this percentage will continue to decline as I don't imagine these pageviews spiking until the search engines pick up the sites and articles. I've been trying to work with the new Bing search engine, so I'll keep you posted on how that goes as well. One of these days I'll start working with the yahoo search engine as well. In all of my experience as a webmaster though, I have to say that I believe the Google Sandbox exists!

Well, I've been the busy bee and I've got a few new Article floating around that I wanted to let you know about.
For those that like eHow, I have 4 new ones over there:
- How to Identify Silver Dimes and Quarters
- How to Crab Fish
- How to Locate the North Star
- How to Live Greener
For those that prefer my longer Hubpages Articles I have posted:
I know, I write about very diverse topics, which is why I needed this blog to help me centralize everything. I'm still working on the goals that I have set to the right. I'm going to try and update you all on my goals each week, but if there is any exciting news, like Google picking me up, then I'll keep you posted on those happenings ASAP! Have a great day!

If you notice to the right, I have a small section about goals. One thing I've learned along the way is to set goals for yourself. The goal I've set is slightly lofty in that I still need to generate roughly 8,500 page views in the next two months. I will not be using any artificial means like traffic exchanges (see my article below.). I'll keep you updated with my progress on these goals. In case you are wondering the page views that I'm counting are from:
Debris Central Blog
U.S. Elephant Blog
Special Her Blog
I Am Debris
It should be interesting to see if I can generate good enough content that will gain 8500 page views in two months. Wish me luck!

In searching for more ways to generate traffic I ran into an old nemesis that is still standing - Traffic Exchanges. Traffic exchanges have not changed much since they first began, basically lots of people earning credits trying to get fake pageviews. Without delving too deeply into it, I would suggest that any traffic hungry bloggers avoid them. Here is a link to the latest article I've written addressing this subject in more detail: Avoid Traffic Exchanges

I've been posting a lot of new content and I'm very excited about it all. I've also been working on driving more traffic but there is only so much you can do when you are in the google sandbox! I'm using Stumbleupon, Digg (not as much as I should be), and a few others. I'm trying to build my links but it is hard to get a hold of anyone!
I am currently just biding my time hoping that google will pick up a lot of my content and run with it. Let me know if you come up with any ideas! I avoid link farms like a plague and I also avoid traffic exchanges as those are frowned upon. I'll be writing an article shortly about why you should be wary of the traffic exchanges.
Anyways, I hope you all have a great day and let me know if you have any ideas!

It's tough trying to keep up with all of the articles and blogs so what better than to add another one to my list! I thought it might be helpful for the people that follow all of my writing to have a centralized place to locate it all. I hope this ends up being helpful your you :). Anyways. have a great day and keep checking back.
