Traffic Exceeds Expectations
It was a week yesterday that the beta version of Writer to the World launched with minimal fanfare or promotion, but traffic numbers have far exceeded expectations. The visitor count was surprising enough, but the sources of traffic were not at all expected.
About 50 emails were sent to friends and associates to get information about the site’s functionality. The site was also registered with the major search engines, but there was a low probability of any significant search engine traffic in only seven days. A reasonable expectation for the first week would be about 20 visitors from such a low-key promotion. Happily, the assumptions turned out to be quite wrong.
