66,207 Page Views
Page Views on Genius Types increased from 62,311 in August to 66,207 in September, a 6.3% increase.
Here’s the raw data for 2007:
Even though it wasn’t a huge jump over August, I’m happy to report that the growth was very organic. September showed a strong traffic increase without the assistance of lower-quality Stumble Upon traffic.
The compound monthly growth rate since the beginning of the year is 25%.
An article I wrote about Husker football really caught on amongst Nebraskans and set a record for most page views in a single month on Genius Types. At one point, the traffic on that article crashed the server for an hour.
The exciting part was that the traffic was almost entirely organic. Instead of relying on StumbleUpon for casual passer-bys, almost half the traffic to this article was from email referrals.

Strong Google Traffic
Top Five Referrers in August:
- Google :: 8,629 visits
- HuskerPedia :: 6,792 visits
- StumbleUpon :: 951 visits
- Lazy Man and Money :: 673 visits
- Zen Habits :: 469 visits
Google traffic increased 10% over last month and continues to be the bedrock of Genius Types.
HuskerPedia picked up my Husker article and sent it viral for Nebraska fans.
Here’s this month’s dose of speculation:
If Genius Types continues to grow exponentially at about 25% per month, I’ll be looking at over 4.5 million page views over the next 12 months!
This, of course, is based on a compound monthly growth rate of 25%.
At $10 CPM, that would mean $45,000!
I could live with that.
Thanks for being a Genius Types reader!
