    No outside website, nor Alexa nor Similarweb can know real traffic to the website. So I don't trust them.. simply because you can't judge traffic without it being tracked.

    Also, if book promo site makes most impact through FB groups or email lists, then their traffic doesn't have to be big at all so that's not a thing to do only. It can be small part of research..

    Good to know. I feel quite foolish now, lol. Well, guess I'll stick to stalking their social platforms to see how many likes, retweets, etc. their posts get.

    Don't be. It's good that you question things and look for tools and use them. Keep doing that. Just don't make these kind of sites the main thing in judging if it works. It's a piece of it. ;)

    Thanks for sharing the list Gymjunkie.

    Kristine's blog is incredible. Within 30 minutes I've plowed through six blog posts.

    Her insider view of the publishing industry alone is unparallel to anything I have read so far.

    Keep rocking bro.

    A great source of knowledge and insights on fiction writing is the blog on terribleminds.com by Chuck Wendig.

    It's more about the writing part of it, though there are still articles on publishing.

    Haven't posted in a while but here is another good resource - an article about Kindle Unlimited and it's impact. Talks about KU subscribers, do they buy books, how much they read etc. Good article for general understanding of how things work. Good website in general too read, plenty of otehr good articles:

    Gymjunkie, I've recommended your covers to people in the past. Small world...just noticed your signature line. You've got a great look for the gritty/thriller vibe, etc.

    How to Advertise & Sell More Books - September, 2018

    Haven't finished the article yet. It's a guide. Several useful takeaways for anyone self-publishing. It's not just about paid advertising, but does talk quite a bit about metrics, and calculating ROI on ads for your books.
