Best Of MoneyCone 2010 And One Last Roundup

As 2010 comes to a close, I wanted to post about something that I normally don’t write about. MoneyCone traffic stats. I started this site beginning of March this year and didn’t expect the kind of growth MoneyCone’s has shown. From 400 visits a month to almost 5000 a month, from 7000 page views to over 40,000 page views, it’s been one incredible journey!

Investors love a company that shows stable, consistent growth. If that analogy were to be applied to MoneyCone, this site did pretty well.

The only aberration was in June when traffic spiked due to one post. I had quite accidentally discovered that I can get the credit scores from all three bureaus for free. What I didn’t realize was that people love a good secret! Discounting that, it’s been a consistent, steady growth for MoneyCone.

At the beginning of this month, I decided to join the Yakezie group, a network of bloggers in the finance/lifestyle space and got to know some incredible bloggers and fresh ideas! I want to thank these fine folks and to show my appreciation, I’ve put up a different kind of round up! (Try to figure out what the the theme is!)
