How many view/vistors are you getting per day?

As I am learning more and more about SEO and websites, I wonder how many views and visitors your sites are getting per day now that the season is starting to kick off. My visitors seems low, but then I think I advertise my SEO to a smaller market (Midland Ga instead of Columbus Ga) so my views may be lower. I am averaging about 5 visitors a day and around 20 views. How many are you getting?

comparable traffic #s but my time on site #s aren't stellar at the moment. I'd rather have half the traffic but better conversion.

We currently don't have an active blog so our hits are much lower but our conversion rate is extremely high.
We only see 10-12 visits/day but again our conversions are very strong.

My recently implemented SEO strategies have only been in place around a week and a half. In this timeframe I'm seeing about 5 visitors a day and they're viewing just over 3 pages per visit. So far it's only netted me one phone call. But I'm also a design/build firm - not mowing or lawncare.

SEO often takes upto 3 months... after a week and a half you are seeing increase... that's a great start! And yah, for your business, you may see a lower conversion rate, being higher ticket prices and larger jobs.

Converting a viewer on the webpage to a buyer!

Well, even the decent time on site, there's still not much in terms of additional pages beyond where they land. Looking at the search terms that lead people to me, I think that because I'm going for long-tail search terms I'm getting people who are looking for something very very specific, and when they get the info they need they're jumping.

I also think my current website sucks as a sales funnel. I just completed a logo redesign with a new design firm, and I'm redoing my website here shortly. Hopefully get something that will drive conversions better than I currently am.
