If you’re new to SEO, we want to make sure you understand what we mean by website traffic before using this tool.
You’ve probably figured out by now website traffic is the number of people who visit your site. It’s typically measured in visitors per month.
There’s an important distinction when it comes to website traffic: organic vs. paid.
Organic traffic is all of the traffic you receive naturally. You can boost the amount of organic traffic by optimizing your site’s SEO.
The other type of traffic is paid and this has to do with Google Ads. In this realm, you design different kinds of ads to appear on Google (search, display, or video, for example) and bid on their placement.
Keywords are also significant in both types of traffic.
Keep in mind that not all website visitors are the same. Some have reached your site accidentally and won’t stay long. Others want to learn more about your products or services, or make a purchase.
Here are the four types of web traffic:
Once you use our free tool to estimate your total traffic, you can work on separating it into these four types of web traffic to see what you receive the most.
Now that you understand what website traffic is and how to use our FREE Website Traffic Checker tool, let’s get into the factors that can influence your traffic.
The first and most well-known is search engine ranking, meaning what position your site appears in a Google search.
Ideally, you want to be on the first page of search results but some companies need to do a little SEO work to get there. The higher your ranking the easier it’ll be for potential customers to find you.
Did you know that your site’s layout and loading time can also affect the traffic? Outdated or confusing layouts frustrate visitors to the point where they’ll just leave. The same goes for pop-ups or advertisements.
Loading time is also important. Online visitors have grown accustomed to sites that load fast and clear. Having to wait extra time for a site to load drives visitors away.
The last influencing factor we’ll mention is content. Your content should include high-performing keywords to boost your SEO and be written to bring value to visitors. When done right, people will start visiting your site to learn new things or have their questions answered.
As a business owner or manager you’ve spent time, effort, and money on building a killer website. Chances are you’ve also invested in SEO optimization. You did all of this because you want people to actually visit your site.
Traffic is important because it means extra eyes on your content, products, or services. In turn, you’ll be able to generate more leads or make extra sales when more people are visiting your site.
If your traffic is low that means potential customers aren’t finding you. And, in turn, that means lost profit.
Website traffic is also a Google ranking factor. Google will assume that sites with higher traffic are in higher demand and therefore they’ll rank it higher.
There are so many strategic moves you can make with this data.
First, see how your keywords are ranking as compared to your competitors. If they’re doing better than you, it may be worth conducting a competitive analysis to see what new keywords you can add to your playbook.
These keywords can be added to your web pages (that’s called on-page SEO) or they can be incorporated into blogs that attract visitors.
Not every online business uses Google Ads but if they do it’s helpful knowing the Adwords Traffic vs. Adwords Cost.
The free data from our tool will show you if the traffic you’re getting from ads is worth the cost. If not, you may want to reevaluate your ad strategy. Paid advertising can get expensive so you should monitor it regularly.
