Started Getting Google Traffic After Just 3 Days?

Hello!

I have not been much Into IM the past 6 or so months due to moving, family, etc,.


Decided I would just set a little site up and see If I still "got It". Three days ago I set my site up, and just on the 2nd day I started to receive relevant traffic. The 3rd day (today), I have had about 160 visitors, with about 4 page views per person.


The odd thing Is, I have not done any offsite SEO, only onsite SEO, and the site Isn't even anywhere close to where I wanted It before any of the public started viewing. Also, by relevant traffic, I mean they searched the keywords I have targeted In google, found my site, and It already has facebook likes, and some tweets.


Has anything changed In the past few months SEO wise, Is this just a freak of nature type thing, or have I done something pretty damn good?

The niche Is gaming by the way, and the keywords pretty competitive which Is why am surprised. I decided to actually create something about an actual hobby of mine this time :p Makes writing content so much easier.

Thanks for any answers, and filling me In.

    And this is a prime example of why I don't put much focus on off-page SEO.

    There have been a few changes lately, Penguin 2.1 effecting certain types of backlinks and also the Hummingbird update which had an effect on the way search results are returned. The latter of those 2 may be playing a part in your traffic.

    You could also just be doing the Google dance

    If the keyword is competitive & since the site is new, your page will probably drop in the SERPs in a few days If your not doing any (quality) SEO.

      SEO will continue to be done onsite, maybe some offsite. I have facebook likes, tweets to my pages, and a couple other sites have quoted my content, providing links back to my site from theirs. Usually I have had my content "stolen", so that was nice to see.

      I am Interested on how this will play out, but will not get my hopes too high. I still need to create more content, which Is what I was focused on before I wanted visitors, and what I'm focused on now.

        Those Likes & Tweets will never move a page in the SERPs, your going to need stronger links. Look for relevant sites that are willing to give you a link If you don't have your own link sources.

          By the likes and tweets, that Is just for exposure for more visitors. I do still have link sources, but I was always focused on content, then offsite SEO once I was satisfied with the content. Never been In the position to do It opposite, but I guess It wouldn't hurt.

          Thanks for the help/Info.

            Sure it isn't crawlers?

            All jokes aside...

            I've picked up on the first page of Google as the first result...

            In about 6 hours before on the very first post I did on a site.

            The keyword got maybe 5,000 searches a month, low competition.

            So it's definitely possible.

            ESPECIALLY if you use Google Webmaster Tools and Index.

              Yes I'm sure

              I use Google Webmaster Tools, Bing Web Master Tools, and Index In both of them. Along side that I use Statcounter, and Google Analytics.


              I have had over 1k uniques today already (4th day) I am feeling somewhat bad that I didn't get enough content that I wanted posted before the site started getting traffic. Highly confused as my rankings went up today :confused:

              That Is very true, I have found It so much easier to come up with fresh content. Gaming Is something I like, so I don't have to outsource content (might If I can't pump It out fast enough myself), and there are a lot of new topics to post daily.

              Adsense Isn't even live on the site yet :p

                That is the beauty of choosing a niche that you are really interested in. Lucky for you, you have enough knowledge about gaming. You will be able to save a lot of money. Also, you will be very productive because you really like the topic that you will be writing about. You'll never run out of things to say.

    One thing you should've done was get a domain name from a godaddy auction that already has high page rank so you won't have a problem with SEO. There are some with a PR of 4-6 that you can get for $20.you can either keep the name or sell it on flippa for minimum of $2,000 for fast cash so you can use that $2,000 for PPC advertising. one program I recommend is very important for high PR and especially if your a beginner. It's hard to get consistent and huge flows of traffic with just SEO alone, it usually requires multiple streams of traffic in order to get huge results.

    I'm writing an article right now about different tools you can use to get traffic fast and mostly within 24 hours.message me when you want to know about the sites.
