    Peak Cycles are Driven by Timely Content
    by Bill Platt

    The very first time I had ever experienced this phenomena online
    was in December of 1996. In those way-back days, I ran a site
    focused on selling Christian t-shirts. Back then, I had posted
    Christian based poetry on my website to draw traffic to the
    domain. Over the two days leading up to Christmas and the two
    days following Christmas, I had served as much traffic as I
    had in the previous nine months of existence!

    Fast-forward to April 15th, 2004. I currently have more than
    one dozen articles on my website dealing with 401k retirement
    funds and 401k tax issues. These articles are the third most
    frequented topic on my site as the traffic is generated from
    the search engines. Beginning on April 12th, my site traffic
    started to climb beyond its average level. It then peaked on
    April 15th. Of course, the vast majority of this traffic was
    visiting my site to find my tax related content.

    Although the traffic to these tax resources comes from many
    sites beyond just the search engines, as many people have
    linked to these articles, one site in particular is the tax
    related site for one of my article distribution clients. My
    client had decided to leave his articles off of his site, and
    to link to his articles on my domain. Between April 12th and
    April 15th, my site received 448 unique visitors from my
    client's domain alone. (
    On the 15th, my site served 90% more visitors than is average
    on any given day.

    So the lesson I have learned here is that if I have date
    targeted materials on my site for several different dates, that
    I can actually draw more people to my site during these peak
    time periods. While the time dated traffic may not generate
    immediate sales, it will allow me to garner more recognition
    in the marketplace. Over the long haul, this extra recognition
    serves to generate more referral traffic that has proven to be
    the basis of my business model. 95% of all of my clients have
    come to me directly by referral.
