After 3 weeks 100 visits a day. Good or bad?

28 replies
My site is 3 weeks old.
I have an average of bit less than 100 visitors a day! Not big number I know.
My niche is men's style, and some other related stuff.

I have around 800 page views a day and each user spends 3.5 minutes on my site. Bounce rate is 52%.
35% are returning visitors.

I am driving traffic through Pinterest mostly since I have 1200 followers. My Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages have just few followers for now.

How do these numbers look? Bad, good, promising?

Also I cannot understand why I am getting different stats from different sources.
My Jetpack WP plugin is showing some numbers, Quantcast is showing horribly small numbers, Google Analytics is showing yet different numbers and my sites AwStats are showing yet another numbers.
Any explanation on this?

      Nope...skip that. Just do more of what you have been doing because it's working.

    This depends on conversion rate.

    If 100 visitors/day is no sales - this is very bad!

    If 100 visitors/day converted to 10 sales/day - this is good!

    Besides the traffic, don't forget about the CR factor.

    There are no sales yet. I will focus my efforts on ad space sales and affiliate marketing.
    But I am waiting for my numbers to go a bit higher.

    I plan to do reviews of men's clothing items. And affiliate marketing of those products.
    My goal would be to become a part of Buy Ads Sell Ads but their requirements are high for me for now.

    I think that first few months there will be no income although I am negotiating with one possible advertiser from Hong Kong. He is made to measure shoe maker.

    Why not to use paid traffic from Fiverr?

    You are worried about different numbers in different stats.

    Google Analytics require a short code to be added to every page so that it can count those visits. It does not count visits from the pages where the Google Analytics code is not added.

    AWStat picks up the data from server logs so it counts all users visiting your site.

      Hmmm, maybe I have done something wrong.
      How do you mean to every page?
      I have added google analythics plugin to my wordpress. Then I have added my code to this plugin. Its plug and play concept.
      But it shows numbers way smaller than Jetpack stats plugin or AwStats.
      Does this mean that AwStats are the most precise?

        Not really. Be aware that AwStats will include some robot traffic in your report. Major crawlers are excluded, but not all crawlers. This will increase artificially your number of visits.

        In Google Analytics the javascript (ga.js) must be fired by the browser in order to detect the visits. Some browsers like IE 8 + will block Google Analytics, so some visitors will not be track.

          Hmmm, that sucks
          So we cannot be sure which numbers are right numbers.
          My JetPack stats plugin for WP is showing numbers that are much closer to AwStats and still bigger than Google numbers.
          On the other hand Quantcast is showing way too small numbers which I cannot understand why.

    I'd say that for three weeks this is pretty good. Is the main way the site makes money by sales? An online store? Ads?

    Overall though, to me the best stat you shared was the linger time on the site. Anything over a minute or two is pretty good. That means people are seeing something worth looking at.

      Ads will be my main source of income.
      I am working on another site where main income will come from ad sales also, affiliate marketing and my own products.

      Yes, I think that is also good. The more they spend time the better, but my bounce rate is 56% now and that is bit much IMHO.

      I think it is great and if I where you I would keep on doing what you do.

      I would not worry about sales this early (obviously sales would be nice), but if you keep building your site and the traffic keeps increasing, the sales and/or advertisers will come.

        Yes I am not worried about sales right now. I just want my numbers to climb up and than the bucks will start rolling in. I hope.

          I believe that's a pretty good start, especially for a site that new. Some site have already been put up for years and they don't even have half that number of daily visits. If per visit would lead to a conversion, then that's even better. If you keep at what you are doing, you'll probably have higher visits than that within a year.

    good numbers, if you will continue that way so by the next year you will have like 1000 a day!

    Great results BTW! After owning multiple sites I can tell you that those are phenomenal stats!

    Word of advice though. I would not wait too long to start monetizing your site.
    The main reason is that if you put in the effort now to know what converts better i.e.
    -> adsense
    -> ad banners
    -> custom ad agreements & negotiations
    -> etc

    You will know exactly what to focus on when the number scale and you start hitting 1000 a day.

    Those numbers sound great to me. Now you have to concentrate on monetizing. 3 weeks to 100 visitors per day - wow.

    hi,

    if your visitors keep returning then kudos for creating that site. What monetization method do you have in mind?

    If you are getting about 100 consistent visitors a day, you are doing fantastic in my opinion. Just keep your work consistent and your numbers will keep going up

    You definately found something that works for you!
    I wouldn't bother about selling ad space just yet, for that the numbers are too low. Go for adsense instead and start building an email list asap!

    List is building slowly. I did not think about AdSense. Is it worth it?

    Those numbers are very good. You should better build a list. Adsense isnt worth it that much.

    I have applied for AdSense. I will give it a try. If it turns out to be rubbish I will remove it.
