Regarding the amount of your unique visitors, this is very impressive!
To put things in perspective, the average unique visitors last month for a popular RE website/hosting provider (start with a P) was 800 visitors/August.
We do need to watch our metrics as to help setting goals. My goal by the end of the year is to average 50 unique visitors/day. I am currently at 35.
The anamoly here is that I am not naturally placing on any of my target market pages ( that is not near the top).
What is most important, in my opinion, is how long they are staying and that they are returning.
Approximately 33% percent have made my site a favorite and ,with a few minor tweaks, I was able to reduce my bail-outs on the homepage. The problem was the load time which I reduced by modifying some of my flash elements.
The jury is still out as time will tell how many leads will convert, but I feel that I am on the right path.
Couldn't agree with you more! I'm currently developing something special...a community, becuase I can't keep up with the leads and I want to feed my friends! 45 more days, a site developed for Realtors/FSBO's, by a Realtor!
But don't let them forget about you once they leave!!!
Having 100 or more hits per day doesn't mean anything if they don't "buy". It really doesn't represent the true value or benefit of the website.
What really matters is the number of website visitors recevied compared to the number that ulitmately do business with you.
