Alexa.com will allow you to track how well your website is faring compared to other websites in the World. There are both paid versions and you are always free to gain a little knowledge about your website for free, if it has enough traffic to be measured.
When I used the paid version it was like $10/month and it allowed me to see:
1) my site’s global rank
2) my site’s USa RANK
3) what countries people were coming from
4) what keywords people were searching for when they found my site
5) some demographics( gender,education, etc.)
6) how long they stayed on my site’s pages
I used this information to get my site to 330,000 at one time. To compare other sites, 100,000 and under is considered a good enough site to pay the site owner to advertise on by some people online. I learned this from one of the people I consider a mentor online, Vick Strizheus.
This website will allow you to ping multiple websites all at once to gain traffic to your website. It is one of many ways to syndicate your blog post. It is not the only way.
What is your websites global and country ranking?
Once you start your viral blogging system for only $25/month you can promote anything you want with it. When you do write a post about what you are passionate about, you will want to syndicate your content and see how well it is doing. Pinging is one way to get your post seen. When your post is seen make sure you include a call to action on that page.
