Lets Talk Website Visits!

Asked by Virginia Beach Estates, Virginia Beach, VA Mon Jun 4, 2007

Ok, my website is now receiving over 100 unique visits a day (very established and #1 on Yahoo for over 15 really competitive local search strings). At this point, I'm curious...how many visits are you guys receiving to your websites? VirginiaBeachEstates.com?

The only thing that matters is the quality lead flow you are able to consistently generate from your site.

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.

I agree, it is less about raw traffic but how many people stick on your site and actually fill out a form or contact you.

I have had the same domain for a few years now and I just redesigned the look and feel of my site. I also added and refined many of the keywords as well. The new site launched about three weeks ago and I am averaging about 65-70 unique visitors per day.

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.

I get an average of 200 unique visitors a day on my oldest site, http://oakland-county-homes.com. My blog gets about the same. My newest site is getting much less than that.

Hey Dave,

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!

Remember that traffic is money! BUT... only if you can capture their information. By offering free e-books, home value reports, and automated property listing emails, you can create relationships with buyers and sellers over time. Internet consumers are often a year or more out from actually making a move. You have an opportunity to build trust with a scared consumer over time using your web site... especially if you're meeting 100 new people a day...

But don't let them forget about you once they leave!!!

Wow, not as much as you, but that's great! I'm still in the single and double digits. But my website is relatively new. About 2 months.

I don't receive 100 per day, but I receive a fair amount of traffic. I am ranked high on the search engines for the "targeted traffic" I want.

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.
