Website Traffic ~ Gauging your Progress
Submitted by Red1332 on October 9, 2007 - 04:05
I just recently hit 2,000 page views on my website and in going in to look at my daily reports I find that my traffic is hovering between 15-30 visitors a day. The page has been up since June and originally I thought this seemed like quite a few people, but really I have no way of knowing if it's doing well or not. I will get 30+ visitors on days that there are known updates coming in, and that number has grown markedly from the original 6-7 I was seeing a day back in July and August.
Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect concerning traffic? I've already been paying for advertising and I did see a decent return from that but I expect that it will taper off eventually. Basically what I need is a sliding scale of some sort to gauge if the advertising and self-promotion is ineffective or if I can relax and let it grow. Being that I've got a newer strip with topics that'll appeal to a smaller target audience I'd prefer to save my money if I can.
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read and reply.
