It's been a bit quieter than usual over the last few days as some of the frequent posters are away on holiday (and one or two are lurking/sulking or something ), but I thought I'd update members on the traffic from SEs.
Traffic from Google is starting to pick up well. If you've made enough posts to have a signature, then there are a lot more people seeing it than just the members here. Your posts should be getting read by an increasing number of visitors that are coming via SEs and, hopefully, they'll click through via your signature link.
You do need to keep posting for that, of course. It's the quality of what you say in your posts that induces people to visit your site.
SE Traffic from when I put Analytics on in May to... yesterday:
I must emphasise, I'm not chasing SE traffic per se. I don't even have the SEO add-on to this forum software. I'm more interested in you, the members, and the discussions I can foster on here than who the SEs send. I'm interested in getting all the right people together so you and they can make contacts and improve your businesses or start new ones. I'm interested in finding and bringing you deals, information, news, useful tips. But I need active participation for that.
So, go look for opportunities on here to make some nice informative / useful / interesting posts. If you don't do that, I don't have much incentive to keep running the show
