I can tell when a blog post has been popular, from the number of views and visitors in the stats page, but one other way to get to know how it’s doing is with the number of shares the blog post had on other social media sites such as Facebook.
The most satisfying thing about it however is when you come across people and pages (in my case bands) sharing your link. Even more fun is when you see others commenting on links to your blog made by strangers.
The review I did on Rock the South, had this kind of feedback:
So far it has 30 shares on Facebook, which I’d say is good traffic for me and the kind of blog I own:
And I have come across one of the shares last night which made me smile 🙂
