Was just making search using Google Search.
I discovered their Tips and Tricks page for better searching so I tried the "related:" search function with my blog in order for me to know who else are writing the same niche I am writing in.

To my surprise one site that pop-out is widestat.com.
This site calculates some numerical and monetary values about your site. I remembered my good friend Khoa Bui(blogger behind www.secretsentrepreneur.com, best selling author, international speaker, corporate trainer and entrepreneur) who wrote "How To Increase Your Website Traffic" and I finally realize how important it is to increase your traffic to make your site valuable.
For me there were two things that I think widestat.com made the basis why they valued my site. One is of course the content. Its unique content for "investing" and "Philippines" did attract quality pageviews. Second is as most bloggers out there would always tell the frequency and how recently the post would surely hike up the value of your blog. As you noticed I did slowed down and the goal any blogger would like to reach is to make about 1,000 post of about 3-4 paragraphs of quality content.
Now why am I blogging about this when this is a blog for investing?
Blogging too can be a source of income which you can develop. Blogging now a days is like writing a book or research unlike before that it is merely use as an online diary. Blogging also has been one of the advertising vehicles since it creates a fanbase(yes thank you to my Feedburner followers, those who leave their comments, those who follow my blog through Facebook and NetworkedBlog, my tweets, and recently my pins in Pinterest).
Now for the moment of truth, how much is Investing in Philippines? Check the screenshot below taken as of today, September 6, 2012:
Nah it is not yet a 6 figure value but hey I am still at around 300 post, remember the goal(1,000)? I hope you will be there with me when I get to that milestone.
I am planning to move out of the ".blogspot" site name. I hope you will be there when that happens because I need your comments, your ideas, your experience, and your company when I do get there(that is 1,000+ post and non-blogger hosted site).
So thank you so much and see you soon.
By the way, if you don't mind I sell e-books and photos. Please visit my other sites below to check out my e-books(2 as of today) and my photos( two sites for viewing sampling ad one site for purchasing them).
