Where traffic really comes from - This high search...
(Page 2 of 5 )
This high search engine traffic depends on the following things:
The total number of pages the site has. The more pages, the higher the traffic. Why? Think about it. Say your site has only 10 pages and each page draws in an average of about 7 visitors a day from the search engines. That's 70 visitors a day (10 pages x 7 visitors per page). If you now had 100 pages instead of similar nature, you would now have about 7 x 100 = 700 visitors a day instead of 70. Its that simple!
Basically, most sites get a trickle of traffic per page on their site. Each page manages to be found by only a relatively small number of people a day from the search engines. Depending on the search subject, usually only about 10 - 30 or so people a day, per page, even on well visited sites. Why? Because most pages on average, on a particular site, do not rank highly on search results. But occasionally you will find a site with dozens or hundreds of pages with good search engine rankings.
By pure chance or careful planning, these pages are optimized for the search engines. Now say you had 100 pages each pulling in an average of 10 visitors a day from the search engines. Your competitor also has 100 pages but they pull in an average of 70 (or even much more) visitors a day due to better optimization. Guess who will be writing the success story.
