Technolism is Now Hosted on Hostgator!

Hostgator Shared HostingI still remember the initial days when I entered into this huge world of blogging. My first blog was hosted on Google servers via Blogger and after a few months, I got a bit more fond of blogging and soon after, made the move to self-hosted wordpress blog.

I started with DreamHost shared server like every newbie blogger and stayed there for quite long. Being hosted on DreamHost for around 3 years, I did not face any major issues and would recommend this for a newly started blog. However, for the past few months, on multiple occasions, Technolism and Equitipz faced lot of downtime issues.

I took advantage of the huge Black Friday sale from HostGator and made the purchase in November last year, and with the help of the HostGator migration team, Technolism was migrated from Dreamhost to Hostgator servers last month and I have not faced any issues so far.

Although the move was made a month back, I wanted to share the transition information with our worthy readers. Anyways, I am getting used to the hostgator configuration and settings for now and will definitely be sharing my new experience with Hostgator.

And although I was not facing any major issues with Dreamhost and used it for around 3 years, I will soon be writing a post on why I moved to Hostgator from Dreamhost.

Google PageRank Update November 2011 – Technolism is a PageRank 3 Blog Now

Google announced its latest November 2011 PageRank update yesterday and I am happy to announce that Technolism is now a PageRank 3 blog, jumping from earlier PageRank 1 (which had gone down from the even earlier PageRank 2 :))

Google-PageRank-UpdatePageRank, in recent times, has lost its importance and many have stopped caring about the PageRank updates from Google, neither do I but when it happens, it gives a sense of confidence that things are going in the right direction and it feels nice ;).

For those who are new to the webosphere and do not know what PageRank is and how it is important for a blog / website, please check this Wikipedia Link.

Technolism Monthly Traffic Report July 2011

Another month passed by and July 2011 was another good month in terms of traffic for Technolism. August is almost over and I know that the report for July is being published a bit late, in fact, very late :P. Actually, I was very busy in planning my first vacation to India after 18 long months (quite long, phew!) from London, UK.

I am currently in India now for 3 weeks out of which 2 weeks are already gone 🙁 and I have extremely busy these days which is the reason for this delay and still I did not want to miss this report. Now, while writing this, I realized that this is interestingly Technolism’s first post from India. 🙂 Till now, I have been updating Technolism whenever I got time from my full time job in London.

With  the 165 odd articles in the last 14 months of Technolism’s inception, we have been getting decent traffic in the last few months with more than 80% coming from organic sources – Search Engines. Lets have a look at the detailed numbers for the month of July.

Traffic Stats Overview:

Technolism Monthly traffic overview - July 2011Visits: 27,733 (+44% over last month)

Page Views: 36,077 (+25% over last month)

The Organic traffic is, like earlier months the main source of traffic for Technolism with the range now close to 80% coming from Google Search engine alone.

How has your traffic for the month been? Do share with us in the comments section below.

Technolism Monthly Traffic Report June 2011

June 2011 was a great month for Technolism. We celebrated our first birthday in June when we organised a premium wordpress theme giveaway. Also, Google gifted us with PR 2 in its latest June 2011 PageRank update. 🙂

June was a great month for Technolism in terms of traffic as well; in fact it was the best month till now. I started sharing the monthly traffic report to keep a track of our progress in terms of traffic over the months. Also, it helps as an inspiration for new bloggers, like it did for me when I used to read similar reports for some leading blogs when I started Technolism back in June 2010.

Online traffic has increased manifolds for Technolism over the last couple of months. I did not post the traffic report for May 2011 – no specific reason (lazy me!). In May 2011, Technolism got around 17k visits with 30k pageviews. Lets’ have a look at the stats for June 2011 below.

Traffic Stats Overview:

Online Traffic Overview - Technolism June 2011

Visits: 19,241

Traffic Sources:

Traffic sources for technology related blog - June 2011

Organic traffic is as usual heading the race for traffic sources. The search engine traffic proportion has gone up to ~76% against 70% for earlier months which is good news for any blog. 😉

Online Traffic Sources - Technolism

Traffic has been consistent from Search Engines with majority coming from Google web search. Bounce Rate is still quite high which I need to work on. As I told in one of my previous posts, I purchased Thesis quite long back, which I also applied for some of other blogs powered by the Technolism network (check here and here). I will be loading it soon on Technolism and see what magic it does for us.

Alexa Rank:

Current Alexa Rank: 108,155

I would be posting the monthly updates on Alexa rank to keep a track of month-on-month progress. I soon expect to see the Alexa rank for Technolism below the 100K mark. 🙂

So, these are the monthly traffic stats for Technolism for the month of June 2011. How has your traffic for the month been? Do share with us in the comments section below.

Google June 2011 PageRank Update – Technolism gets PR2

Technolism completed one year in June when we organized a WordPress premium theme giveaway.

In this one year of operation, we achieved some milestones, big and small. With around 150 posts and taking care of the SEO, Google started shedding some love on Technolism with the traffic increasing with every Panda update (two so far), thanks to the unique content that we share here on Technolism. 🙂

Google PageRank Update June 2011Last month, Technolism got 6 Sitelinks in Google Search which later on increased to 8. Now, there is another good news for us from Google and this time it comes in the form of their latest PageRank update.

On June 27th, Google released its second PageRank update for 2011. The last PageRank update was in January 2011.

This PageRank came with a good news for Technolism and I thought of sharing it with our lovely readers. Technolism PageRank has improved and moved from earlier PageRank of 0 to PageRank 2.

For those who are new to the webosphere and do not know what PageRank is and how it is important for a blog / website, please check this Wikipedia Link.

I am noticing a lot of webmasters sharing their PageRank updates on their Facebook and Twitter profiles and most of them seem to be happy with this PageRank update from Google.

PageRank, in recent times, has lost its importance and many have stopped caring about the PR updates from Google, neither do I but when it has actually happened, it feels nice ;). Such things just keep reminding that things are working out and you are going in the right direction. With this PR update for technolism and the traffic rise with the Google love in the past one year, what I have to say to my fellow bloggers is that have patience, keep working hard, keep writing useful and unique content and things will start working for you. 🙂
