The dust has settled after Sb’s migration in late May from Moveable Type to WordPress. I’m glad we switched, but we lost a lot of traffic in the process. Mainly it seems to be due to changing URLs (the web address of each blog entry) that threw the search engines off and lost us RSS subscribers. In Q3 2011 Aard had 780 daily readers on average and a Google rank of 7. In Q3 2012 it’s looking to be more like 540 daily readers, and the Google rank is 6. Dear Reader, to keep things lively here, I’d be grateful for your help. In the following weeks, if you read something you like here, please hit the recommendation buttons up top for Facebook, Twitter and G+. Also, if you keep a blog, I’d appreciate a link now and then. Thanks!
