A new site is always going to have trouble ranking, compared to sites like Squidoo and Hubpages that have gained Google 'trust'. However, that has not stopped my account from getting traffic. I've been here for less than a month, yet I have had 140 visitors a day on my pages for the past few days. That's on 20 pages. (I've also had two sales on Amazon making a whopping $1.56)
Over half that traffic is from outside Wizzley. When I started all the traffic was from within Wizzley.
33% of my traffic is already coming from Google.
This is definitely moving in the right direction and at a pace beyond what I expected from such a new site. I think those quality standards are definitely working :) Of course people using their Squidoo and Hubpages skills also helps, just like all of us building links to the site helps.
Still - great work Wizzley!
