    I'm starting a new campaign, and just bought a new domain name last night...

    Now, keep in mind, I haven't done ANY promoting AT ALL, I have about 1 paragraph on this site....

    Yesterday I had about 4 visitors, and today I have over 150....?????

    WHAT THE FUCK?

    I don't understand?!.... This site is less than 3 days old, with NO PROMOTING at all, just a domain name....

    Why would that happen??

    Check your traffic stats in your cPanel or what ever type of hosting you have.

    This happened to me before where I got over 3000 direct hits a day for about a week (around Christmas) but then it just died off and now back to the 20-60 visits a day.

    You have a lot of threads going about all these different methods and tests that you are trying (which is good to do) but you really have to start tracking stuff if you want to get ahead. Knowing where you make your money is important because it allows you to optimize things and stop spending money/time on other projects that are failing. You don't have to go over everything with a magnifying glass but by quickly scanning your server stats, you can get a pretty good idea of what's going on.

    Has the domain name been previously owned? Check yahoo Site Explorer for backlinks.

    Are you saying it is impossible to get that kind of traffic?

    It really isn't hard at all depending on your niche, I sit on the first page of Google with my long tail keyword and then the second page for all my other keywords.

    The niche I am targeting is rather small but I have this site set up to promote my other site and nearly all my visitors go to my other site.

    Plus, I have back links on a couple PR4 or higher sites since the owners of those sites no longer check them. And those sites are directly related to my niche.

    Oh one last thing, it is a Wordpress site in which I just wrote the content and haven't touched it since. I am in the process of turning it into a html/css site.

    I haven't been promoting since I am busy with other projects, I am working on the HTML/CSS version of the site now because I think Google is going against me for having wordpress and never updating it.

    I still have to do a little bit better SEO and I will be bringing in way more traffic.

    The main keyword I need to focus on is "free+keyword" and I will be bringing in 1000's of hits each day. I currently sit at like the 5th page for this keyword.
