How cool is this?

My blog translated to German!!

Blog visits!

Magic! I had the most visits to my blog in one day yesterday!! After complaining about no-one coming, the avalanche hit. I don't know why though??? I'm still not getting many search engine hits, although there has been a slight improvement…..

Still no one is interested in completing my survey 😦

The Frustrated Blogger

Since establishing my blog a couple of months ago, I had been consistently getting 5-10 search engine hits per day – mostly people searching for egg free and dairy free recipes. Then suddenly, for no apparent reason, they have stopped, and so has my traffic.

Now, whilst I am not trying to get traffic to my blog for commercial gain, it's a warm and comforting thought that I can reach people who also have kids with allergies, and that other people are reading some of my crap and I'm not just writing it for my own entertainment.

How do I get the search engine's to see me again?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated…..

That is – if anyone reads this entry….
