There are two main reasons that people write articles online. One reason is to spread the word about a cause, issue, or facts. The second reason is to earn money through clicks or sales. Sometimes you can do both with the same page.
One of the key factors we look for when assessing whether an article is successful at achieving its purpose is the traffic it attracts. This can be measured by analytical statistics which track visitors' behavior on websites. However, traffic alone is not a good measure of an article's success. It is way more important that your article is reaching the people that you are trying to reach, and that those people are interacting with the article in the way you want them to. In the case of an sales article, that interaction would be actual purchases (sales conversions).
Nice and simple information. I like that.
really useful information. Thanks!
You're so right about targeted traffic. Many of my most profitable articles only get a handful of visits per day yet make consistent sales. Other articles get hundreds of visits and never make sales because readers are just looking for information.
For me both are equally important. A good amount of traffic is an indication that your article is appreciated and brings a boost in income as well.
Oh it's so true that traffic does not equal sales! good tips!
I need to reread articles like this several times till it finally sinks in . I think I finally got it. Thanks.
Great tips on getting both traffic and sales. Thanks, Katie
@poshcoffeeco I think you were. And that brings up another point. Don't you feel good that you found what you were looking for? That is what your reader should be left with.
Great information. Just what I was looking for. Mmmm does that mean I was targeted traffic I wonder?
Interesting, I never thought of it this way. Thanks
