All good things must come to an end and my two week holiday is almost over. We’re back at home after a great time away and I’ll gradually be resuming my blogging activities here at ProBlogger on Monday (there will be a couple more guest posts in the next two days).
Thanks to those who submitted posts for ProBlogger’s Summer/Holiday Series. I can say that without a doubt it’s been an incredible success on a number of levels.
My last live post was Christmas Day and the guest posts kicked in midday on 26th. You can see for yourself the results (feels kind of strange to see your blog do so well when you ignore it!). A number of the posts (some of my own advance ones, but mainly guest posters) were picked up on del.icio.us, tech.memorandum and lifehacker (among others).
The secondary benefit of the increased traffic and large link ups is that the number of other sites linking to ProBlogger.net over the past two weeks has increased also. My ranking on Technorati has moved from 110 to 87 which is a result of two factors:
- Increased incoming links
- Less linking to other sites over the Holidays (ie when other blogs are less active there are benefits of having an active one yourself).
