This is one for the veteran writers, if you wouldn't mind, as I'm going around in circles trying to fathom it out.
I've been writing on Wizzley for eight months. Before that, I was at Suite101 for four months, so not long to gain much authority.
In all this time, my traffic has been steadily rising, everything going in the right direction and all.
But this last couple of weeks, things have suddenly gone yampy. Multiple articles are suddenly appearing quite high in the SERPS; old articles have gone from plodding along to right up there in the most read pages this week (of mine, I mean); I've had a decent sale on Amazon and another on Zazzle; and Chitika has come to life.
None of this is massive. I am talking in relative terms here. I'm not going to retire any time soon; and it's not like the entire internet has come reading my stuff.
So is this:
a) Time of year;
b) I've finally arrived;
c) Wizzley has gone up a notch or two in popularity in some search engine somewhere;
or d) Too soon to tell
Thanks in advance. I haven't the experience to guess!
