Stuck at a Traffic Plateau
My website has plateaued in traffic.
I started my site in August of 2007. It now gets an avg of 400-430 uniques/day according to google analytics.
My ad budget is about $130-$200 a month and I just use adwords gives about 680-800 hits a month is all there. So I never know if I'm just throwing my money away on it or not. I put a question at checkout "where did you hear about us" but 1 in 50 people actually write anything and they always just say google but not if its an adwords.
Currently my traffic is coming from the following sources using this months stats.
Referring Sites 10,660.00 (75.27%)
Search Engines 2,214.00 (15.63%)
Direct Traffic 1,288.00 (9.09%)
Its obvious I tapped the referral market well, I do have DECENT seo done. I
would not consider myself a pro at it but I feel Ive done the best I can. I may have the tendency to choose too popular of a keyword but never compared the results to a very specific unique one.
I would just like any advice from others who have gotten "stuck" in their traffic growth.
I also want to ad in my alltime Adwords campaign to get advice there.
Current Budget Clicks Impr. CTR Avg. CPC Avg. CPM Cost
$5.00 / day 5,171 1,449,309 0.36% $0.19 $0.68 $991.29
$2.00 / day 6,726 1,634,463 0.41% $0.18 $0.73 $1,189.67
Those are just a couple I mean is that a good CTR? I never notice month to month but looking at this all time figure 2000 bucks for 12000 clicks seems not so fair lol.
