On March 15th the number of views on my blog was unusually high. I noticed that one posting, “Do you want to know more about Disc Golf”, had 217 views! Being in the tech field, my first thought is an attack on the website because why would an older post get so many views. I posted it in August 2012 and prior to March 15th it had about 200 views. In about a 2-week time period, it had more than 600 additional views.
The post is about disc golf, which is at a grass root level making it hard to believe the high number of views. The recipe is a wonderful Poppy Seed Vinaigrette Spinach Fruit Salad recipe; however there is nothing unique or unusual about the recipe to bring so many views. It is one of my favorite summer recipes. Add a marinated grilled chicken breast and you have a fabulous dinner!
I checked the search terms used by users and nothing was associated with neither disc golf nor the recipe. However earlier in the week there were 10 searches using different disc golf terms. Could a site have picked up this posting? I did not get any pingbacks that it was reblog by another WordPress blogger. Of course pingbacks would not account for e-newsletters and other websites.
During the last 30-days the largest referrers to my blog are search engines and Pinterest. The highest number of views happened on March 15th with 217 views. The views continued on March 16th with 126, on March 17th with 71, and March 18th with 105 views. From that point on it received between 14 and 25 views each day and so far has not stopped.
With that many views it seems odd that there was not one comment. I tried to perform a search to see if I could I find the link in another website – but no luck. I would love to know what caused this so I could understand how to better market my blog. Any thoughts?
