Are you tracking actual traffic and user interactions or relying on the counter? You should really use a legitimate 3rd party traffic analyzer, such as Google Analytics. I haven't seen GoDaddy's analysis in a few years, but my guess would be Google goes significantly more granular, especially as it relates to visitor location.

Re: the counter itself, If I were a competitor visiting your site and saw it, I would do a rough comparison and see what I need to do to exceed your traffic. Why tip your hand? Couple that with their usual inaccuracy and there's a reason on-page counters haven't been used in over a decade. They simply don't give you the usable data you need to answer your prevailing question of "What to do to get more?".

- Your pictures seem to be over 1mb each, when they could probably be 35k or so. The load time of the page suffers incredibly, as does user experience.

- Your About Us page is center-justified, making for a less natural read. The rest of your site is right-justified.

- SEO-wise, read up on basic info re: title and H tag optimizations, meta descriptions, etc and you'll quickly see where you can make improvements. We've linked to quite a few of these resources in a lot of past posts, so take a read through the archives of site reviews and you'll see a lot of useful info, as this is one of the most common issues.
I know lawn & landscape marketing, branding, and web strategy. I'm not anonymous, I just don't self-promote.
