  1. This is actually a very helpful post specially to new website owners who might be expecting that when you build it they will automatically come. I agree with all of your points here and website owners have to realize that for your website to get traffic that you desire, you will have to work at it. Elements such as you mentioned – keyword research, good content, and even joining a community – are all essential elements that can help you get that much needed traffic

    • Hey Kathy, thanks for stopping by and reading this article.

      I think the number of website owners who believe in the auto-traffic myth is actually quite high, which suggests that there is a huge lack of education out there for those getting into this business. You are totally right when you say that you have to work at getting that traffic. In fact, you have to work a lot and really hard to get the traffic coming at a decent rate and even after that, you can’t just sit back do nothing.

  2. Thank you for a very informative and helpful article. I am going to put all your advice into use – I have had an issue with putting the correct information into
    Google Analytics – I am now going to go and re check!

    • Hello, Elizabeth. I’m glad you found your way to this page.

      It sounds like you found what may have been your issue with traffic, and with any luck it is just those darn analytics settings! 🙂

  3. Another very informative post. This kind of helpful information is great for those that are new but also such a reminder for those not brand new to re-check a few things for accuracy. Thank you so much for the help here. Off to check that accuracy now! 🙂

    • Hey, Merry.

      I completely agree with you. I know that I still have to run down checklists to make sure I don’t miss things, even those not traffic related. For example, every time I publish a new article I have a checklist I go through to make sure I don’t miss anything post-publish. The other day I didn’t use my checklist and ended up forgetting to submit my URL’s to google and bing. Not a big deal, but still one that cost me some exposure time.

      When it comes to traffic, basically the life-blood of online business, you literally can’t afford to be missing something that might cause that traffic to stop! Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed this article and found it helpful. 🙂
