My Top 10 Traffic SourcesThe best Traffic Sources and Tools for Affiliate Marketing 2020

Posted By Darren Rowse 2nd of May 2008 Miscellaneous Blog Tips

This month I’m asking What is the Biggest Source of Traffic to Your Blog in our sidebar poll.

I’m finding the results so far interesting. It’s still early to draw too many conclusions although Google is a clear winner so far with 49% of the vote (in comparison to all other search engines with just 1%).

A number of readers have asked me to answer the question for myself – so I thought I’d do for both ProBlogger and Digital Photography School here in a post. Following is the breakdown according to Google Analytics of the Top 10 Traffic Sources – including the percentages of total traffic.

You can see a few obvious similarities between the two with Google an obvious winner again (although the mix is different in terms of percentages).

Top Traffic Sources to ProBlogger:

1. google / organic – 42.89%
2. (direct) / (none) – 17.59%
3. google.com / referral – 5.10%
4. stumbleupon.com / referral – 2.54%
5. yahoo / organic – 2.05%
6. twitter.com / referral – 1.87%
7. lifehacker.com / referral – 1.74%
8. del.icio.us / referral – 1.65%
9. bloglines.com / referral – 0.81%
10. technorati.com / referral – 0.79%

Top Traffic Sources to DPS:

1. google / organic – 30.54%
2. (direct) / (none) – 23.31%
3. stumbleupon.com / referral – 9.15%
