Weekly Chit-Chat and Good Reads

Welcome every one. We are officially 1 month old. And Google has granted us some authority. Now when I searched using the blog name, I saw FPR as the first entry listed. Even we are now seeing a couple of search engine visitors everyday. this is a good sign. Although I don’t think we would see any significant search traffic till we are 6 months old.

This is my experience from building my personal finance blog, One Cent at a Time. We saw traffic increase at 3 months level, 6 months level and at 1 year. Although the back-link profile is not very good right now. I did make some headway with Yakezie bloggers and carnival hosts.

Last week we posted only one review because  didn’t get much time to try out many products. I hope to amend the lull in upcoming weeks. We want FPR to be a very reliable name in the field of product reviews. Till date the reviews we have written were very honest.

I am trying out betterment and many other finance tools for writing review purpose. So far I haven’t found any revolutionary product in the market after mint.com and Yodlee in terms of reliability, ease and usefulness.
