Today I have some great news! I never thought that this moment will come, but it did!
I finally broke the 100 visitors from organic visitors per day!
Those are my GAnalytics data for this month. Now, I’ve been actually close a few times to break the barrier. On Sep 6th and on Sep 11th, I have 91 and respectively 92 organic visitors.
So, what does Organic mean?
Well, the organic traffic is represented by the visitors that search for a keyword on Google or other search engines and end up on your website.
Those are the stats for New Organic visitors and not for sessions :D. The difference is that a user might search for something on Google, get to my website and within the same day, they might search for something else and get once again on my website. This will be counted as 2 organic sessions and 1 New User.
So, yes, to the outsiders this might not sound like a big deal. However, this is a very big deal for me. Let me tell you a few things about me and my business for those of you that haven’t browsed my blog posts.
I have worked for numerous hours, sometimes around 12-16 hours a day for 2 months and a half and during those months I haven’t seen any result. I haven’t seen any organic traffic from Google or from other search engines. Just imagine putting so much work into it and not seeing results for almost 75 days.
When I first started to get organic traffic it was like a fairy tale. I couldn’t believe that I was actually on the right path. I started to believe the other people’s opinion about what I am doing, which is that I will never have any results from this. As soon as I got a few sessions 1-2 a week, I started to believe that this was possible, that everything I’ve learned and applied was having results.
I used to have months and weeks when I didn’t had any organic session. And please note that I said session and not new users or something like that.
Now, on 20th Sep, I reached a milestone which I only believed that I will be able to reach in a year or more.
The main problem for me is that I am in the most overly competitive niche on the internet. There are literally millions of competitors within this niche. Therefore, all the fresh starters within the niche would probably give up since they won’t see any results anywhere soon.
For those within a specific niche, they might get better results than me within the same amount of time since they will have fewer competitors.
This is an incredible accomplishment for me. I remember when I was happy to have 1 or 2 visitors a week and when I was shocked to see that I had 2 visitors on the same day. Now, look where I’ve got… 100+ unique visitors within a single day. It feels like a dream.
Now, I know that it is possible to get traffic by doing in-page and off-page SEO. I am sure that this represents only the beginning and I hope that in the next 6 months I will be able to say that I’ve got 500 visitors a day.
Sure the numbers don’t look so high, but let’s take a look to the traffic per month. 100 a day means 3000 per month, in the case of a month with 30 days. For 500, that would mean 18000 unique visitors per month!! That’s pretty much insane.
I only hope that within a year or a year and a half I would be able to have over 1000 visitors a day. 😀
So, my next milestone is to get 200 unique visitors a day. 🙂 I hope that I will get those numbers by December!!
That’s all the news that I have for today!
Wish you a great day,
