Hi Brian! Very good and exactly what I was looking for. I have a problem though, we are creating the first video editing software that edits video WHILE FILMING. We are video geeks with a lot of experience, however we are trying to appeal to GoPro users and video tutorial makers but we have little knowledge in that field. Any suggestions on how we write about that if we have no idea about the space?
With our specialized traffic services, easily reach your targeted audience with more than 200 different demographic features to choose from. The targeting is easy to carry out and you are free to choose the kind of features that set your audience apart from the rest of the general traffic. It is also accurate and very effective at how it gets down to the specific features you would be desiring in your customers.
Every engine has a slightly different process for site submission, and it pays to follow their guidelines. For example, there's a fee to list your site in the directory at Yahoo!, but Google doesn't charge for their submission process. Here's a tip: If you submit your site exactly as they ask, you stand a better chance of getting a good listing on the first page of search results.
What do these stats mean? First, these are from a profile I use that broadly groups types of content into single URLs. This site has over one million URLs, and I find most useful to categorize everything into types of pages (you can do this with filtered profiles in GA, which is probably the topic of another post). You can see the Index page of the site is how most people are entering by far. 22% bounce immediately, meaning something about the home page felt completely wrong for whatever those people were looking for. We’ll examine how to improve that number in future posts. You’ll notice a few popular blog posts have much higher bounce rates. These are the “Miss Untargeted” that are coming to your site for one-off content, but are probably not interested in buying whatever you are selling. It is interesting to note that one blog only has a bounce rate of 50%, indicating there is something about that post that invites people to dig further into your site.
Regarding Link Detox, links it diagnoses as Toxic are generally fine as they're either not indexed by Google or have malware/viruses/etc., but I recommend a manual review of any diagnosed as Suspicious. I used it recently to get started cleaning up our backlinks and some legit sites and blogs were under Suspicious simply because they didn't have many links pointing to them.
Next I would look at the Exit rate (The percentage of people that left on a given page). The Exit rate is useful for identifying common pages that people are leaving your site on. This often points to problems on the page or shows you that people are not finding what they want (for example if a search result page is a common exit point). I order this report by Exit rate, filtering out outliers first.
If this number appears inflated, it could be because some of those visits are from you visiting your site without logging in. When you're logged in, your activity doesn’t count toward visits. However, when you're logged out, we have no way to identify that the visit is you, so those visits can count as Direct, or as a different source if you clicked to your site from somewhere else without logging in, like your Facebook page. You can read about how to avoid this in Hiding your activity from Analytics.

Hi Brian! I enjoy reading your posts and use as much info as I possibly can. I build and sell storage sheds and cabins. The problem I have is that there are no top bloggers in my market or wikipedia articles with deadlinks that have to do with my market. 95% of my traffic and sales are generated via Facebook paid advertising. Would love to get more organic traffic and would be interested in your thoughts concerning this.
When thinking about web traffic, it’s also good to remember that as a website owner, your job isn’t limited to content creation. You’re also supposed to promote what you have to offer. You see, generating website traffic is not something that happens by chance. It’s the product of good hardwork, and this hardwork involves good marketing and promotional strategies.
Hi Kate. Forget about targeting highly competitive keywords. If I was in your position I would focus on high quality photography and telling stories and the stories of your customers. Instagram could do extremely well for you. Consider running a competition where you giveaway a stay, and consider engaging big instagram accounts in your niche to promote you.

The very best way to drive traffic is to find communities, groups and forums online that are interested or related to your niche. You are bound to be able to find some on Facebook or Google or there might be some other specific communities set up. Have a subtle link to your website (don’t try to sell a lot or be spammy) and contribute a lot of value to those groups.


Regardless of what kind of website you are running or your reasons for running it, you’ll want traffic coming in at a steady or increasing stream. There are many ways that you can actually achieve high traffic numbers, but the easiest ways are definitely with the help of software and tools. When you google alternative tools for website building, for example, you could find traffic-boosting products quite easily.
Targeted Organic Traffic is in high demand as organic site clicks are what most marketers strive to increase.  Visitors are considered to be “organic” when they arrive at your website as a direct result of using specific (targeted) keywords on a primary search engine such as Google, Yahoo and Bing in their search for products or services.  Organic traffic, sometimes called organic search traffic, or organic keyword search traffic, is the opposite of paid traffic (PPC).

Your three main points: 1. Users leave your site when they don’t get what they expect. 2. Users leave your site when they don’t know what to do. 3.Users leave your site if they suspect you aren’t being genuine are very nice. This is my personal experience that when I find this type of site I leave it. I thought this is the problem with me alone but here I found out that many people are facing the same. Thanks a lot for proving me that I don’t have any problem and the problem is with website itself.
