Most Popular Posts of 2009
by Matt McGee on Jan 2, 2010 in General
At the end of each year, I like to dig through my blog stats to see what happened and why over the past 12 months. I wrote a really long, navel-gazing post on my SEO blog, but I’ll spare you that here on Hyperlocal Blogger.
Instead, how about a look at the top 5 blog posts published in 2009? Here you go:
- (Now) 40 Local Blog Directories
- Pros & Cons: Big City Blogging vs. Small Town Blogging
- How To Find Free Photos for Your Local Blog
- How to Create a Local Newswire for your Blog
- 5 Ways to Grow a Local Blog
I should add, too, that several of the most popular posts of 2009 were written in 2008. All of the articles in the Starting a Hyperlocal Blog series continue to get a lot of traffic long after they were posted.
The thing that excites me the most about where this blog is right now is the number of active commenters. When I invited everyone to talk about your local blog, we had close to 40 comments. And there are plenty of other posts that hit double figures in comments. Thank you for your contributions here — as a group we all make each other better local bloggers.
All the best for you and your blog in 2010!
