Here’s a graph of one of the (what seems like) 5o sites that I launched this year (hopefully explains why I update so rarely).
The orange line represents the number of keywords this new site was getting found for and the blue line represents what percentage of traffic was coming through search engines.
Then in August some guy gets a lucky banner on a previously undiscovered popular site and my success suddenly pales in comparison 🙁
That’s 5 keywords in January (launched late January, brand terms only and probably someone in the office searching for them), to 1072 in Novemeber (and back to 904 in December) and topping out at 50.57% traffic share in August, dropping all the way down to 8.44% in October.
Still, the more people coming to the site the better, there’s no I in team.
