$1,000,000 Worth of Wow!

Yesterday’s post on “How to Make $1,000,000 Blogging” set some records for the most popular article in one day. It was Stumbled (thanks!) but had 64% more views than the typical Stumble brings to one of my articles. In addition, in terms of total views for the blog in a single day, yesterday set the record. It even outperformed my Viral Links stories!

The post also finished second place in terms of total readers for a specific post in one day. The record is held by “Google Slaps Bloggers… Yawn.”

Overall, it jumped to #14 in my most popular posts of all time. I think that’s pretty good to reach that point in a single day.

I can only guess, but I think the headline may have had something to do with the staggering increase in views over the average Stumble. This may validate Chris Bloczynski‘s post on headline techniques.

Anyway, wow.

And, if you missed it, you can read it here.

I haven’t read that blog yet, but I’m sure that the title has a lot to do with your response. Heck, I’d settle for 100, 000!

Yeah, but you shouldn’t think small. ;-)

You’re welcome! I’ve been trying to use it as a tool to flag post that I like. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

Well, let’s try again for this title on stumbleupon. ;)

Thanks again!

This morning, it has made it up to #13.

In the Permalink Views, it’s hit #5 all-time.

In the Blogging category, it’s the #5 most popular post of all-time.

It’s already the most popular post for the last 60 days, and #2 for the last 90 days.

That’s speaking of the original post. I’ll report the results on this post late this evening.

This title didn’t work at all. This one was probably the least amount of traffic I’ve ever gotten from Stumble. Barely over a dozen.
