Blog Rank


2012 Blog Goals

  • Increase traffic to 100,000 page views per month. This is going to be a tall order.
  • Continue from 2011 – break top 100 in Wisebread’s Top Personal Finance Blogs ranking.
  • Improve from Google Page Rank 5 to 6. This is probably impossible, but this is my shoot for the moon goal! Google penalized this site. :(

Social Media Goals

      1. Increase Twitter followers to 5,000
      2. Increase Facebook likes to 1,000
      3. Increase Feedburner counts to 1,000
      4. Increase Klout score to 55
      5. Increase Google +1 to 500

Hey retireby40,

Hope you don’t mind, but I like how you tracked your Alexa ranking on your page. I borrowed the idea for myself. I hope to break 200,000 like you did. Congrats!

Not at all! I thought it would be helpful to keep track of what I did.

great commentary, I am planning to create a rank page, you inspired me

Very well done!!!! I love how precise you are. You don’t list your current Feedburner subscribers, but if I remember correctly, you’re already about 60% there. With respect to Twitter followers, those come so fast, I think you will be surprised by how quickly you can amass that 5000 goal. I think these are equally ambitious and awesome! Cheers!

I updated the page with Feedburner subscribers. It won’t be easy, but I’m sure we can do it.

Best wishes in your goals! Was curious why it’s so hard to get past PR 5 for blogs?


Paul February 22, 2012 at 9:05 am
