    My website started getting 200-250 daily visitors from search engines and it's only like 4 months old...plus it's getting 1500+ visits from social networks every day!

    I AM SO HAPPY! :D

    That's all - I'm just feeling good and wanted to spread this positive energy! :D

    Love you, BHW-ers! :D

    That's pretty good, how is the social traffic converting? I find it's not as targeted as search engine traffic overall..

    Well, I used to monetize it with AdSense then Google banned my account for...nothing? They didn't event give me an explanation after I appealed, and I was making some nice cash with it. Recently, my friend registered for AdSense and he got approved so now it's time to start making money from it again!

    While I was waiting, I was charging some people to advertise on my website's sidebar. I wasn't getting much money, but hey, even $1 is better than nothing! :)

    And this organic traffic is INSANE! According to Google Analytics, they visit 8 pages and spend 28 minutes on my website in average!

    I know that for some of guys here it's nothing, but I'm pretty happy with it since I've never had really big website before, and I never really expected to be this "popular" so quickly. :D

    It's doing quite good actually. My website is related to basketball and I found some big pages on Facebook related to basketball who share my articles on a daily basis, and in return, they get a Facebook page widget on my website. So I get targeted visitors and there were sometimes basketball-related ads on AdSense, so I would sometimes get 20-30 clicks on my ads.

    The best thing - 70% traffic is from the USA/UK/Canada/Australia!

    Thats the best example of my you should do sites about topics you actually care about personally.
    Congratulations. Having something to work on which you actually care about is a pretty neat feeling.
