First of all I would like to give you a little idea about the basics of traffic. It is quite necessary to get these basic ideas before switching to the strategies to get more hits on your blog. ( you would discover later in this post tat why it is necessary to have those basic ideas)
What is web traffic?
I know you are quite comfortable answering this question if yo are blogging for a while. But let us take a look at the definition of web traffic as defined by wikipedia.
Web traffic is the amount of data sent and received by visitors to a web site. It is a large portion of Internet traffic. This is determined by the number of visitors and the number of pages they visit.It is clear from this definition that traffic is a measure of site's activity usually reflected by the number of visitors and number of pageviews visitors generate.
Now the visitors can be of two types-
- New visitor who has come to your blog for the first time
- Revisitor who has visited your blog in past
