I average about 640 people a week. I don't think its much. I think Ed or littleus gets the most! I usually get people from my Youtube videos that just come over and get cheats/glitches.
Great thread btw!

While I am most appreciative of your faith in me ;) I have stated earlier that although I am on the first page of over 65 keywords or phrases and nearly as many on the second through fifth pages of all searches I get a mere trickle of traffic. You would expect that with over a hundred keywords or phrases within the first 5 pages that I would get a boatload of traffic but sadly I do not... YET ;)

This is still due to the economy and as luxury items are not purchased during a recession not many searchers are looking.

I did however notice a spike in purchased ad space from all the "Big Boy" playhouse companies out there once I took the top spot of all the searches months ago. LOL That is what happens when you beat out your supplier and all their thousands of affiliates selling playhouses to be the top site in your field. It is a cry in your beer kind of moment but as I don't drink I will just think about doing it... ;)

I continue to pray that my searches rise and do not drop... They sure fluctuate around sometimes and it is enough to drive you crazy but I hope to one day be rewarded for all that hard work.

It's a really misleading analysis.
The nature of the usage of the site is related to exams. it's a resource for candidates doing an entry exam. (And no it's not a cheat site)

The numbers between the lead ups, drop down remarkably and if you look at the graph you will see it tailing off. It will rise again about 6 weeks prior to the next intake exam.

During the period leading up to the examination the numbers topped out at 8900 per day. The day of the examination the numbers were on the same line and exactly at 09:30 they fell. People were heading off to the examination.

http://simplyeighties.com is getting around 10-15 visits per day. I think most of this is coming from my videos on Youtube to promote the site. I also promote on Yahoo Groups! However, this is quite poor for all the effort I'm putting in!

http://laurelandhardy.yolasite.com doesn't seem to be getting any visitors! I've p[romoted it at Yahoo Groups but to no avail. However, it is a pretty new site.

The hardest part of running a website for me is getting quality traffic.

Your simplyeighties site is at least ranked....Right off though I see you have nothing in your page title (window title)to help you come up in search engines. This is the first thing the bots see and is very important

The site is 6 months old. I got really lucky. I found a popular site that allows me to post articles on it. Those articles give me tons of hits. So I write alot of articles. That is where I learned that writing content is what works for getting traffic.

So I suggest you add a blog to your site. And start writing about your niche. Plus it helps with the google search engine.

Yeah maybe a blog. But it's geared more to a place for gamers to come and hang. But maybe I should set up a store or something that people come to, to get stuff. I have no idea what I am going to do.

Hello Tanya. I'm now getting around 500-700 visitors per day to my website http://www.simplyeighties.com and the way I have achieved this is by adding lots of content. You need lots of info and pictures on each page, and I have found that if your content is really interesting then your visitors will link to you on social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest - the latter is particularly good! Less pages with lots of content is better than lots of pages with little content.

Also, I have many pages ranking on the first page of Google, and these are the pages with the most content. I find that nice photos are really important for high ranking and I am now going through my pages and adding more of them. Also, start your own Pinterest boards and pin the best pictures to them. You could also create Youtube videos with links back to your site.

Make sure that your page title matches the heading of your content. For instance, I have a page with the heading "80s Cars", and you need to add this at the top of your page, too, and make sure you mention those keywords a few times in your content, but don't overdo it!

I'm not sure what type of site you have, but also mentioning it with the URL address in forums such as this one is also worthwhile.

The bottom line, though, is to add good content as this will also create links back to your site and also higher search rankings.

Hope this helps.
