Organic traffic update
It's been awhile since I posted about how my organic traffic is going - the last time being in February (see https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/arpl/blog/organic-...). There hasn't been much to say as the traffic has stayed at that level since then, averaging around 150/hits a day.
This morning I got a surprise - a new peak of 352 organic visitors:
This is interesting as it's been roughly one year since I launched the site. Each time a peak has indicated a new level of traffic - this time it's probably ~250/day.
I don't post much but obviously it is important to create good, long content with smart keyword research involved.
And while the traffic is good, the downside is that my bounce rate has skyrocketed from 15% to 70%. This could be due to the change in design. I went from one that had a nice sidebar with footer widgets to to the default WordPress theme due to some theme weirdness (takeaway: avoid Woo Themes like the plague). So we may have some very strong evidence about how to keep someone on a site a little longer.
