I looked at it because I was trying to determine how many posts, averaging out their performance, I likely will need to meet my income goals.
Site A is about 0.8 visits per day per post.
Site B is about 6.
What is yours?
On average if I write 2 good posts a week for each site it's going to take me about 2 more years to meet my income goals.
Site A is a blog I'm adding ecommerce to, and I have big plans, so I feel there's potential with it. Site B is the opposite, an ecommerce store I'm transitioning to a blog only. The above numbers are fairly accurate for considering the blog posts only, not ecommerce pages, homepages, etc.
I'm hoping as I add more quality posts my traffic will ramp up exponentially a little bit, due to better leverage with higher search rankings and a bigger email list, or at the very least increase linearly. What is your experience with that? I mean I guess massive repercussions from Google algorithm changes could send me plunging, but my understanding is there's not much risk of penalties if I'm mostly just churning out quality posts and doing some basic on site SEO and minimal white hat offsite SEO and social media.
Both these sites are 10+ years old but I did a crappy job with them until recently. They have steady Moz DA scores of 20 and 30.
