It’s been a steady month in terms of stats for this blog. While there hasn’t been much in the terms of improvement stats-wise, they have remained consistently good.

There was a small spike in pageviews on August 21st due to my article Will Making Twice-Monthly Half Mortgage Payments Save Money? being featured on the Noteworthy section of the Rockstar Finance email.

There’s also a new set of statistics this month - stats from Google Search Console.

Google Search Console

New for this month is Google Search Console statistics. I’d previously submitted the non-HTTPS (i.e. HTTP) to Google Webmasters / Search Console a long time ago, but only recently submitted the HTTPS version - sometime on or around August 7th. Apparently, that’s why my stats for Google Search Console had looked so bad. I’m sure Google had already indexed my pages and was putting them on search results, I just had no idea.
