Huge Increase in Traffic!

The last week has seen quite a large increase in traffic here on the Mormon Game Design blog! Actual numbers are that there have been almost 200 hits with each hit averaging 1.5 pages per visit!! This may not sound like much (especially compared to other more "general" type blogs) but for this blog, it's a lot!

The two biggest referral sites have been Google (not really a site per-say, but people searching with Google have been directed to this blog) and MormonTimes. Each has sent over 60 people to the blog over the past week. Big thanks go to Emily Jensen at MormonTimes and her daily Today in the Bloggernacle column.

With the increase in traffic I also wanted to say that any and all ideas and comments are welcome. If you have any suggestions that may help improve this blog (or just something you would like to share) don't hesitate to leave a comment or to email me directly and speak your mind.

First of all, congrats!

Are you running Google Analytics? I'm curious what keywords are the biggest draw for you?

Thanks Mark.

I do use Google Analytics. For July and August the top key words were:
1. book of mormon games
2. armor of god games
3. lds board games
4. mormon board games
5. it came to pass card game

I have no idea about key word optimization or other such things that are supposed to boost your hits. I just keep blogging and let happen what happens. Maybe it would be good to figure that kind of stuff out, but I don't know.
