Motivation and stupid statistics
Have you ever sat down to watch the paint dry after painting a wall? Or walked around the lawn staring at the grass waiting for it to grow after mowing it.
But I am sure you have been in and out of Google Analytics several times per day to see if anything is happening or ran your site through Alexa just to find out that your site still is in the 18.000.000 range in the world, and then done it again the next day to see if it's improved.
Don't get me wrong. Keeping track of the stats is important. It will help you analyze user behavior, build a better site and find out if what you do is good or not.
But when you have a new site, building traffic take time. Sometimes a very long time.
It's like watching grass grow. You will not see any significant growth at once, but eventually, maybe without you even noticing, it will get long enough. Even if you absolutely love to mow the lawn, the grass will not grow faster if you watch it.
The same applies to your traffic stats. They will improve eventually.
But still, you will check Analytics every day, just as you from time to time have to put your finger on the wall to see if the paint has dried some more.
Just don't let it kill your motivation to see low to zero in traffic on your site.
Instead, let it inspire you to fertilize your site with better keyword research, better SEO and many more articles.
And even if your site is number 18.000.000 on Alexa you are still among the top 1.4% of the 1.297.000.000 websites out there.
