See how much traffic your blog gets......
Vintage School Supply Headquarters Advertising Poster Royal Vernon Line
As Etsy sellers we are always looking for a way to increase traffic and sales. One way to to this, is to advertise on high traffic blogs. There are a number of way to find out how much traffic a blog receives each day, and every month.
RSS Feed Subscription Numbers:
The fist method is to do a little investigating. I like to look for how many people are subscribed to a blogs RSS feed. The majority of the people that are subscribed to the RSS feed visit that blog everyday, not everyone, but a good amount. Take for example Handmadeology. There are currently 438 people subscribed to the RSS feed in less then 60 days. Everyday these prople will get an update via email of any new blog posts that were posted. Now lets look at some real high traffic blogs:
Oh Hello Friend is an awesome blog with over 10k people subscribed to their RSS feed. Also This blog is set on the blogger platform so there is the blogger follow widget. You this works like the rss feed. Oh Hello Friend has over 4ooo people following their blog.
I also like to take a look at a blogger reach throughout social media, like Twitter and Facebook. Is the blogger active on Twitter or Facebook? What are the number of followers like. This can be a good gauge of the amount for traffic they may get.
Read their advertising info:
Bloggers will most likely talk about how much traffic thery are getting right on their advertising info page. Also look for any major press the blog may have received recently. Modishdirectly talks about how much traffic they receive and lists a nice press link.
