The Tax Update visitor meter crossed 500,000 on April 14, which was the busiest day so far this year, I believe.
Visitor 500,000 was somebody from Michigan who Googled "s corporation tax planning blog," and he arrived at this page. Most of our traffic comes from Google and other search engines. When they arrive from that kind of search, it's a good thing, and they might actually find something useful here. In contrast, folks who get here with searches like "rat outline" and "you've got a lot of nerve" may not leave the site fully satisfied.
Of course the 500,000 mark is arbitrary. We had no Sitemeter for several years, and it has covered different parts of our blog and website at different times. Still, it's a nice round number, and a good time to thank you for stopping by. So, thanks!
We also have noticed over the last few days that we have somehow been deemed a qualified news source for Google News. I have some Google News subscriptions to notify me of tax stories on the internet, and some Tax Update posts have started coming showing up in my inbox. So that's some sort of milestone, maybe.
We appreciate your visits, whether you come to the home page or through a search engine. We hope to see you again soon.
