Day 6, we are continuing the challenge of doubling the popularity of spinoff Cactus Haiku in one month. First the chart at the top and then whatever strategies I am trying out.
This Thursday pageviews, visitors, and likes is higher than last 4 Thursdays. My “other likes” were higher on September 14 but that was an unsual high. I usually only get 1-3 as most my likes come from WordPress bloggers. WordPress stats people coming over from Facebook and WordPress is up. One was the highest before; today was 5. Google Analytics show 6 people coming over from Pinterest and WordPress shows 0. I’ll go with GA on that one.
So let’s see how I did yesterday (Thursday) compared to previous Thursdays:
|pinterest referred*||6 / 0||4/ 0||— / 0||— / 1||–/ 0|
|facebook referred*||5 / 5||1 /1||— / 1||— / 1||–/ 0|
|wordpress referred*||1 / 5||0 / 0||— / 0||–/ 1||–/ 0|
*pinterest, facebook, wordpress are showing google analytics stats / wp stats (since I only signed up for google analytics this week, there are not stats for prior weeks for GA)
**I have set up google analytics to minus my own isp so that it doesn’t get added into the numbers
2 new followers today.
Technically I probably shouldn’t count Pushing Rope. She is a new blogger. I am doing a volunteer thing at the library where I set up a meetup for bloggers. She was the only one who showed and she wanted to blog. So last week, I showed her how to start up a wordpress blog and she wrote her first post. This week I showed her the wordpress reader so she could learn to follow. So she followed me, lol. I also showed her the wordpress daily prompts so she might start writing for those as well. She is new so please encourage her by giving her a like. Pithy is a very short post: a hilarious wall photo.
Strategy 3: Pinterest Group Boards
Strategy 4: Facebook Group Pages
Still waiting for someone else to post in Haiku & Senryu Garden before I post another one. I added the Fraud senryu early 12th am to the Haiku and Kyoka group and got a couple likes.
In Facebook, they give a number called “reach” . My cat senryus seem to be most popular, getting 5x more “reach” than my other senryus.
Strategy 5: Medium Publication Pages
On the 10th, I applied to put two more poems into the Haiku Hub Publication. I applied to be accepted to another poetry publication on the 12th. Still waiting to hear back on both. No new followers, no new claps.
Strategy 6: Instagram
Didn’t do anything here since I signed up.
Strategy 7: Challenges
I haven’t done any other haiku challenges yet.
I received 10 likes today, four days in a row. Yay! it does look like my new average. Here is my happy applause for the people who liked me on the 12th.
So what improved?
- Pageviews, Visitors, Likes, Referrers are up this Thursday compared to past 3 ones.
- Likes are holding steady at 10 for the fourth day in a row.
- Picked up two new followers
Anyways, that’s it for the 6th day of the challenge. Again I posted the graph to show you how the last 6 days is considerably better than the previous few weeks. The orange is the 12th. (the 13th of course has 0 cuz it’s in the early am here, no hits yet)
And as the bunny says, “That’s all folks!”
