Takeaways from March 2020



Pinterest continues to surprise me each month. The platform is an absolute goldmine for food bloggers for sure! Im so glad I started focusing on Pinterest to grow my blog traffic from the very beginning. 

If you want to know how Im using Pinterest to generate all this free traffic, I recommend that you check out the Pinning Strategies taught in this course.  

I got 149,000 page views in my 11th month as a food blogger! Don’t miss out on the opportunity for you to get free traffic yourself!  You can get Pinteresting Strategies to start learning awesome tips for growing your traffic here.


Organic Traffic Update

I did not spend a lot of time on SEO.

SEO does not provide quick traffic as Pinterest does. According to people who focus heavily on SEO, it takes about 6-12 months for search engines like Google to start trusting your new blog and start sending traffic to it. 

I guess Google is starting to trust my site more since I more than doubled my SEO traffic in March 2020.

If you want to improve your own SEO and search traffic, I suggest using the strategies from Stupid Simple SEO. I bought this SEO e-course and have never regretted the purchase. It’s the perfect SEO Course for both beginners as well as people who are already knowledgeable about SEO but want to learn new strategies for growth.

Blog Goals For March 2020!

1. Maintain page views at 146,000 page views or grow (not sure how this will go as yet)

2. Earn $3000+ from the blog

3. Publish 10 new recipes.

4. Get 13,000 sessions from SEO

Will I achieve these blog goals at the end of April? Stick around to find out how I’m doing!!
