500 feedburner readers

I am pretty happy to announce that Blog on travel finally passed the psychological barrier of 500 subscribers to its RSS feed today (via feedburner). It has been quite a long way to achieve this, you can see this in the graph below that shows the RSS Subscribers of this blog from the very beginning:

I am also pretty happy to see that the Search Engine Optimization work I have performed for the last 6 months helped the blog to make it to the TOP 10 results of Google.com for the keywords “travel blog”; Blog on travel is now ranking 9th on the first page of results for those words.

PS: By the way thank you Google for updating the Page Rank to 4/10.

Forbes, Bootsnall, Travelpod and Lonelyplanet still precede Blogontravel in that ranking. I will keep you posted of major changes..
