My website report: Okay, so for the month of March I started to get more traffic and got over 600% more unique visitors than last month. That’s amazing, for my 2nd month! My main goal for this month was SEO and the podcast, Websites Made Easy. I spent some money on advertising, but that was just because I had a free $75 coupon for Google Adwords, which I don’t think actually got credited to me correctly because I was still charged. Boo..

My Analytics & Stats
