Last week I was at WordCamp San Francisco and the accompanying community summit and team work days. Despite my constant focus on WordPress, I didn’t publish anything here. In the week leading up to WordCamp, I published six blog posts about a large variety of areas from a technical tip to a book recommendation. The effect on my site’s traffic was obvious.

In raw numbers, I saw a drop in close to 50%. I think I learned an important SEO tip: Publishing content increases visitors.
