    Ok, a lot know contents, SEO , backlinks , social medias etc to promote and build your site.

    But I curious on domain age....

    let say this domain already 2 years or even 5 years ..
    trafic will naturally come to this site even the site owner never update contents , SEO , backlinks etc?

    If you just set up the site and put it up if you do get any traffic it will be very little to none if nothing is done.

    Unless the site is about something that is not competitive then you could possible see some traffic from it.

    But I would not bank putting a site up and then get all this organic traffic and then retire. LOL

    Are you asking if a site that was set up 5 years ago without any type of SEO or promotion would receive web traffic?

    I mean, I suppose the site could get a few visitors, but there are just too many variables to take into consideration. Remember, people need to be able to find the website.

    You're going to always need to add new content, can't just set it and forget it.

    Organic SEO takes awhile to gain traction, and unfortunately requires upkeep. Your antique site is probably pretty dead in terms of traffic, yes?

    I have a website .com domain with 8 years , no seo made, and I don't get traffic because of the age.I have some backlinks with edu and gov domains , even PR and DA, PA above 20... but I don't rank for any KW so... domain itself is not value in my eyes.Espetialy if its not EMD. I have let this website on autopilot last 3 years and my daily traffic is about 50 visits a day, with almost no ads conversation.
    That is from my own exp.

    I think if you have a domain that is a EMD(Exact Match Domain) for your main keyword and you have unique, paid for or written by you articles. Post about 3 - 5 daily around your main keyword. With a website with a very fast loading time probably using very little images or having the images hosted on a CDN. Setup a sitemap and added it to Google Webmaster and further fine tune it using that system. Do that for a month and you should get 200 uniques a day.

    Then buy a $150/$250 multi-stage SEO/Social boosting monster for your main keywords if you researched reaching 1st in SERPS will earn you way more traffic. And you will get some traffic.
