Thanks to visitors like you, Newvine Growing had its best month ever in May.
WordPress provides good insight into my Web traffic, including how many clicks a particular post has gotten and how people found me, including the search terms that might have led you here or a referring site that included a link here.
I know, for example, that searches for cilantro were an important part of my May traffic. (My post
On calling a truce with cilantro got a lot of visits and some great comments.)
Some other popular search terms and the posts they hit are:
- P Diddy’s White Party — a post I did on the artificial ban on wearing white before Memorial Day, including a photo of P Diddy’s legendary White Party, headlined What rules are you following and are they helping or hurting you?
- Ben Jaffe — I think searches for Ben, who is the creative director of Preservation Hall in New Orleans, spiked as a combination of New Orleans Jazz Fest in late April and early May, and because of a new recording Preservation Hall did with Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz and Trombone Shorty to benefit the Gulf Coast oil clean up. My profile of Ben is headlined Preservation Hall’s Ben Jaffe balances tradition and innovation
- New York map — I blogged about moving to Brooklyn a year ago and included a map of New York to help give perspective on where we are now. That map has brought a lot of visitors to my door, so I added links to some helpful maps to assist people more interested in exploring NYC than exploring life. I hope at least a few of them stick around after arriving at On moving to Brooklyn
