Propagated!

The site was down due to DNS not propagating, or something like that.

The good news is that I realized I’ve been paying two hosting services for nearly a year. The old host has been canceled, saving me $5 a month. That’s real money for bloggers.

BTW, my traffic, which grew by 20 percent in February, went down to its old level last week. I didn’t understand the surge and I don’t understand the decline. Do any of you have a clue?

I’ve also slipped on Google. I used to come up first in a search for “Joanne” or “Jacobs.” Then I slipped to number three, four, five or six. Now I’m not in the top 100 for either, though I’m the number one “Joanne Jacobs.” What’s up with that?

While I’m self promoting, my book, Our School, makes a lovely gift for May and June graduates.

  1. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I put you on Bloglines. If more people are getting your feed like I do now, probably less are clicking over.

  2. I don’t have any answers, but if it’s any consolation, I have experienced the same thing with my traffic. I had my biggest month ever in February…and now I’m down quite a bit. The Googles must have done something.

  3. I read you faithfully using Google Reader.

  4. As for Google, you simply need to know the right persons to bribe.

    You need another follow-up for “Marriage Strike.”
