As usual I’ll keep this fairly brief, but May was a pretty great month. All previous traffic records were broken (by May 20th actually). This was due in large part because of 3 front page ‘diggs’ and 2 links from my absolute favorite tech blog, Lifehacker.
Some vague stats for this month:
Unique visitors: over 150,000
Unique page views: over 250,000
New feed subscribers: over 200
Some relatively useless stats for this month:
Simplehelp entered the “top 10,000” blogs on Technorati
Alexa ranking went from 150,000 (give or take) to 90,000 (give or take)
Even with the digg and lifehacker links, Google remains my #1 source of visitors/page views.
Most viewed posts that were created in May:

Now I just have to do it all over again this month.
