After a very slow 2018, I got off my backside and started taking my site more seriously. After publishing a collection of articles that I was proud of, a number of them started to rank in the top 5 results on Google. This meant traffic rapidly increased during 2019, and now we regularly hit 2000 sessions per month. It doesn't sound a lot but considering we were barely getting 100 several months ago, this is a huge milestone. It's testament to SEO fundamentals and having a bit of patience.
