With the mild success of a half ass attempt at setting up an eBay affiliate site, I decided to put some real effort into an ever better site. Google's index was reporting some very unusual variations during the first week or so, but now, RollaParts.com has over 350 pages indexed in Google. This means traffic, and good traffic at that (organic traffic can provide amazing results compared to other types of traffic). Here's a screen shot showing how many visitors came from Google as of 3-4PM est, today.
Those are some pretty decent stats for such a new site if you ask me. Not only that, but the Pages/Visit column shows people actually using the site to shop around. This proves the page offers value to visitors. People like my mom are easily overwhelmed, and sometimes eBay's home page is covered in useless shit - not very effective, but what do I know?
The site is performing well and showing up for highly targeted keywords. Those are buying words - no, "tutorial" or "how-to" or "picture." Just the product, "let me check out and go." I wonder how these stats would look if this were a make-up site instead of a car parts site. Would the search terms be any different?
Whatever, I'm burnt out from this weekend, but a lot was accomplished. Until next time...
Ok, so it's not quite next time, but I decided to check analytics again before finally getting some sleep. Here's an update:
Ok, seriously. I'm done for the day. Hey, I'll bet you can't laugh without smiling.
