Blogger Meetup, Top Referrers and LinkStuff For June 15

by Mike Holman

Saturday night I had the pleasure of meeting Preet from Where Does All My Money Go –  he and Mr. Cheap came over for some Thai food and a few beers.  It was a lot of fun and hopefully we’ll do it again soon.

Top referrers and stats

May was a pretty big month for this site – over 100,000 unique visitors and over 200,000 pageviews.  Unfortunately those numbers probably won’t happen again for a while but it is still pretty good.

Something wrong with your link to CCapitalist, FYI.

3 Canadian Capitalist

Wow, those are impressive traffic numbers. BTW, the link to the safe deposit box post should be:

Thanks for pointing it out, Guinness416!

100k visits is nice! Is that mostly stimulus traffic still?

5 the weakonomist

Who’s the best? For this week it’s this guy <———

Thanks for the link Mike.

Thanks everyone – my capable assistant fixed the CC link – sorry about that error.


Those are a great numbers. Congrats.

I got a kick out of Kyle using the term “stimulus traffic.” Apparently the government is handing out website traffic as well as cash!

CPS – haha, thanks.

I thought the traffic was because of the brilliant writing of Mr. cheap and I but you’re right – it’s just a handout. 🙂

Very impressive traffic numbers. I think your blog does well because it covers a lot of different areas (personal finance, investing, savings).
