    Here is the rundown on my traffic...

    Domain     24 hrs     7 days     30 days     ever    7    74    235    726    9    82    220    242    2    10    50    157    20    86    88    88    0    3    40    51    1    9    17    17    0    1    14    15    0    1    5    14    1    3    10    13    0    0    8    10    0    1    5    7

    The Facebook hits are not from friends... for the record.

    I have very few clicks and almost all of them came PRIOR to an uptick in Google, Facebook, and Yahoo traffic.

    I know I need to keep writing and I am in it for the long haul... trying to learn and put to work new techniques... but I am just wondering (1) is it customary to have basically no clicks with decent Google traffic, etc... or do I need like hundreds of hits and (2) any advice for me to take it to the next level!?

    Hope this helps not only me, but other Hubbers!

    1. sorry, it is not a decent traffic. you can count on a handful of clicks on average with such numbers, dozen at best.
    2. you need to do keyword research and promotion if you want serious traffic.
