Random Numbers

This is my blog traffic on a normal day:

DayDatePage Loads

Monday 30th January 2012 71
Sunday 29th January 2012 48
Saturday 28th January 2012 50
Friday 27th January 2012 44
Thursday 26th January 2012 42
Wednesday 25th January 2012 37
Tuesday 24th January 2012 42

If, on a given day, I put up a new post, that yields a slightly higher number:

DayDatePage Loads
Wednesday 4th January 2012 115

However, add a link from QueryShark into the mix on the day I announce a sale, and this happens:

Tuesday 31st January 2012 2,038

I'm one of those new readers and I've bookmarked your blog. I'm looking forward to digging into the archives :)

Never underestimate the power of The Shark. ;)

Enjoy the traffic boost, Josin! You've earned it.

Bryan Russell said...

Plus, you are awesome, and that might have something to do with it. You deserve it. It's time to do a dance. Or a shot. Either/or, really.

Holy Hell.

The Shark is awesome but everyone knows it was only a matter of time before you had a sell!

Michael Seese said...

Whoa! I need that kind of traffic.

And, CONGRATULATIONS, of course.

I had the urge today to go back to QueryShark today and pull up the PREMEDITATED query, because I'd forgotten the title and wanted to see what happened with it. And, because I don't actually pay any attention to the "yes" list, I googled "claire dinah premeditated." This blog came up. And I am so, so excited that I'll have the opportunity to read the book whose query has been haunting me for a year.

I know! I got a shout out on The Shark's main blog and my traffic went up as well. Behold the power . . . and you deserve 1000% with your awesome book deals. Can't wait to see Premeditated!

So that's all I have to do to get blog traffic!
