Social Media Experiment

So, how has the social media experiment been doing?

I didn’t accomplish all that I had hoped to this month – but I feel really great about it!  Especially since the past two weeks I have been pretty laid up with a “social media blogger pain in the neck re-injury“.

So, how did the first month of the social media experiment blog go?

This blog is 30 days old. It has 8 posts currently. There are 143 comments on the blog, 38 of which are my responses to comments. 105 comments are from blog visitors.  I have had 845 unique visitors and 327 returning visitors in the past 30 days. A total of 1172 visits.

Social Media Presence Change in the Past 15 Days

(Remember the past 15 days, I have been mostly laid up with a neck injury.)

My Twitter followers has increased by 233 followers.

My FB friends has increased by 24 friends and my FB fans has increased by 6.

My Klout and my PeerIndex have both increased.

My XeeMe XPV dropped considerably as I expected since that wasn’t my main promotional strategy during the last 15 days.  It is still higher than my number started though. I am pleased about that.

These numbers are far less than I had planned but they happened with little additional work from me since I was laid up.

I have included a list of my top referring sites at the bottom of this post.

Also, if you want to see the progress, you can see my progress report spreadsheet at http://goo.gl/PNTlH.
