Many web development websites and search engine optimization blogs are posting year end statistics, and who am I to not be a slave to convention, so the Naked SEO guide will be baring all.

Below is a graph showing traffic increases and I must say I’m extremely pleased at the increasing trend line.

I find it quite interesting that China is my #2 referrer. No one else I have talked with sees such a large percentage of Chinese visits but I sure have a lot of Red State love.

Top 5 Referrers:

Ask.com crawled this site 12455% less than MSNbot and 6313% less than Googlebot. I know Ask is a 4th tier search engine but seriously how can they present authoritative results on anything with such an infrequent crawl rate? I predict Ask.com will drastically change their service model, perhaps becoming a niche search engine for IAC web properties.

All told 2007 was a great year and I appreciate all the fantastic discussion and positive and negative comments. 99% of the visitors had something positive and helpful to say and were great contributors to this SEO blog.

    I am not sure where you’re getting your SEO information, I needs to spend some time learning much more about search engine traffic trends.
