    No, you never need to resubmit to Google. As for traffic, there are two fundamental ways to increase it: 1. Create more content pages. 2. Get more quality and relevant inbound links.

    Google AdSense target marketing -

    Why offer visitors a convenient link to your competitors' products?

    Is the strategy is to at least make a nickel on the window shoppers?

    Could be many reasons, depending on site.
    Could be a new site where you haven't applied any filters yet to filter out ads that are directly competing with you. Could be that you accept that people have a choice and if they don't like the look of your product you at least make something when they depart. Could be that the product that you are offering is fairly specific as in custom made rather than the generic products shown in the ads. Could be that you're making more than dimes.

    I guess filtering is a good idea.

    Maybe I'll allow them on my blog, myspace, etc., but filter them on my primary website.

    Thanks Nick!

    Website Content

    This is a good thread. I think Coffee Detective said it well. One thing I would add is to be sure your visitors know exactly what you do as soon as your page loads...I believe the stats say you have 5 seconds to deliver your first impression. If they don't see what they are looking for they are sure sure to click off of your website and on to the next. If they click off of your website on the same page they entered, it's called a bounce. You can monitor bounce rates with several free tools online. I prefer google's webmaster tools. It's an excellent way to monitor how people are finding your website through keywords, referring links, etc. You can also see how long visitors stay, how many pages they view, or if they bounce. In short, the tools are an excellent way to see if your content is any good.

    I stopped paying for ppc's while my main site is down and have had a few visits to my blog page, mostly from referring sites, but some organic searches as well.

    Okay guys, here are some of my blogger stats from Google's Analytics:

    Last 14 days, 189 visits
    403 Page Views
    65% Bounce Rate
    Avg. Time on Site, 3:06

    So, are these typical stats? Are people finding what they are looking for?
    Any advice? Thanks.

    Since my post, two weeks ago, visits have declined dramatically for some reason. I was posting heavily in another forum a few weeks ago, that accounts for many of the referral links.

    Does anyone else use Google's webmaster tools and understand them?
    Are they accurate?

    Now there don't feel bad, I went and had a look around.
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    David,

    I don't know if it helps, but a copy of the my Wiki stats is in the link below in .pdf format. I don't know if it helps you or not, but you can see what Google Analytics is giving me and the sort of traffic the site has and where. I post new ones up each month.

    If you want to see one for a longer period, I can e-mail you one.

    That's great Davec, thanks for sharing. It looks just like mine, except yours shows a lot more visitors. On the map overlay option, I've noticed someone in Northampton, MA has been visiting my site every day, multiple times, for weeks. Why would someone do that? I asked Pangea if it was someone in their web design crew, working on my main site. Haven't heard back from them yet.
    Davec, I have a non-coffee/non-website question for you. I'll pm you.
    Anyway, another interesting tool is a Yahoo tracking tool I used to use on my main site. Regarding referral links like this one - I had higher visitor rates from this forum using a certain avatar, believe it or not. I experimented with various avatars for awhile and the results: Image sells.
    Ccafe, thanks for the 7:33 look around. Funny, but I don't trust the "time on site" stats. Someone could have minimized the browser for your site and let it sit, open for a period of time. The page views however, Ccafe's 4 pages, tell the story more accurately.
