CFO Featured on AllTop (Startups Section)

Collegefallout has finally featured in AllTop under the Startups section of the site. AllTop is an aggregator that lists the top blogs around the web and classifies them according to their niche. It is also founded by one of my favorite speakers and VC’s Guy Kawasaki.

It is a pretty big deal to get listed on AllTop with all the best blogs and feels very great to have reached there.

Now you can find my blog’s latest feeds alongside some of the biggest names such as Growthology, OnStartups, Fast Company, VentureBeat etc. through AllTop.

If you have never checked out AllTop, I would suggest you do to get the best sites in the niche that interests you!

Signing off.


CollegeFallOut Monthly Traffic Report October 2010

This is the first time that I am sharing the monthly traffic report for CollegeFallOut. I have seen that for some reason, people really dig it. So here you go.

The blog has really improved in the terms of bounce rate. Until last month, CFO was averaging a bounce rate of 72% – which is quite unhealthy for any blog. Now it has come down to 31%.

I shared my concern regarding high bounce rate on this post earlier – 2 factors affecting Collegefallout.

In relation to the last month, October finally saw CollegeFallOut crossing the 100+ visits/day mark.  For a long time, this blog only saw a two-digit traffic. The site also scores very high on the average time – 2.05 minutes is the site average.

The site time average and pages/visit tell me that my content quality is quite decent and I should concern with getting more traffic to the blog.

So the main thing that is required now is to increase the site traffic. I am seeing a monthly growth is traffic and I hope that it will quickly snowball into much higher traffic stats.
