My WordPress SEO Progress Report: After 2 Months
There are many ways to track the effectiveness of your WordPress SEO campaign and I am going to tell you about a few of them. Afterall, what good is SEO if you can not track it. Let me first lay the groundwork. For the past 3 years I put 100% of my efforts into building up other businesses and websites. 3 months ago I began focusing my efforts on marketing, primarily JasonFox.me, the site you are on. The first month was concentrated on research, design, classes, and getting organized. In effect, 2 months ago a WordPress SEO campaign began on a brand new site, with a brand new URL on a brand new server. I want to show you what has happened:
Alexa Ranking – Simply put Alexa ranks websites based on traffic.
2 Months Ago: Alexa = 8,895,562 | Today: Alexa = 498,368
Traffic – Rather than tell you my stats I thought it would be best to show you. This is for the last 30 days:
This Analytics report was created using my CloudFlare account… but Google Analytics, or Get Clicky could also be used.
Backlinks – Are the number of websites that have a link to your website from their website, and is crucial for good WordPress SEO:
2 Months Ago: Backlinks = 0 | Today: Backlinks = 261
MozRank – Is the “grading” of your links. Having a large number of links is good, but having your links on quality websites is better:
2 Months Ago: Mozrank = 0 out of 10 | Today: Mozrank = 2.65 out of 10
There are other factors you can measure the effectiveness of your WordPress SEO, like Google SERP and Pagerank, particular keyword effectiveness, Social Sharing, etc. However, I thought this data would provide a sufficient snapshot of my efforts.
You can test your URL for Alexa, MozRank, PR, and inbound Links using this Domain Hammer tool.
PS. These results have been achieved 100% by White Hat Google Webmaster Guideline driven WordPress SEO techniques. I do not use Pay Per Clicks, or Ads, or Shady SEO tricks.
