Best of 2008

Happy new year! It’s 2009 now, and we’re heading into what will hopefully be another great year of Webmaster-Source. 2008 was a big year for Webmaster-Source. The site grew significantly, started making some decent money, and I released two WordPress plugins and started using Twitter, to name a few milestones.

Before we start the recap, let’s take a look at the statistical difference between the last 30 days, and the same time frame last year.

Current Statistics (Nov 27 – Dec 27)

  • Pageviews: 30,262
  • Unique Visitors: 21,495
  • RSS Subscribers: 400 (average over 30 days)
  • PageRank: 5
  • Posts: 695
  • Comments: 3,259
  • Akismet Spam Comments Blocked (to date): 101,612

Compare to last year. Quite an improvement.

Notable Posts of 2008


The month of January is the month when I started using Twitter, which I like to think has benefited Webmaster-Source overall, in traffic and reader engagement.


The GoCodes plugin was launched this month.



In April I bought my MacBook, around the 9th or so. A very worthwhile investment.




July 10th was the release of WP125. The ad plugin took a few months to develop, and I have to say it turned out great. It’s been downloaded well over 6,000 times to date, and brings a respectable amount of traffic to Webmaster-Source.






This month WSC received a major redesign that I had been working on for the previous few months.

Onward to 2009

As I said last year, bring on the new year! I look forward to another year of blogging, and I hope you will all stick around and continue reading.
