Many of this site's correspondents probably have business websites, not just the escorts. And I know that some webdesigners converse here, too.What are the ballpark figures, if you think you have a handle on them, for the following?

 

- average number of hits per day?

 

- average percentage of email contacts per number of hits?

 

- average number of sales per number of hits?

 

- Do these numbers have any kind of a predictable curve over time?

 

I don't really want any advice on changes I could make to my site to improve it on the public boards, but if anyone wants to make kindly worded constructive criticism, feel free to stick it in my inbox, so to speak. My new website has been open 6 days, is averaging 27.5 hits per day and I haven't had a single email contact yet. So I'm wondering what normal is. (I know already that I probably need to get into some webrings.)

You site is not only interesting but very stimulating. Your site screams "I want to meet this fascinating person." My only suggestion would be to join a few webrings related to your area of expertise. (Or, many areas as it appears to be!)

One place you really need to submit to is the Open Directory. A couple of hundred search engines use it for either an adjunct directory or for their own searches. It's really hard to tell much about traffic until you actually start getting some. Unless you're an adult site, you shouldn't have much trouble with cost of hosting because of having too much traffic using up your bandwidth. But to market yourself on the internet you really need to get your link in as many places as possible. And if you're aiming at the local market, there should be places there where you can link. Some local search engines or sites that get a lot of traffic looking for local links.

LAST EDITED ON May-12-01 AT 10:53AM (EST)[p]Thanks, guys, great advice. It won't look like I'm taking it very fast (though I mean to take it) because I am a bit of a computer klutz. My webmaster says he will teach me html so that I can update my own website, but right now he doesn't even have the time to update it, let alone teach me. (I guess I'll have to take a course or two elsewhere.) Anyway, he busy for the best of reasons. He is one of the small group which is moving the Gulf Coast Archives and Museum of glbt history to it new, and first permanent digs in time for an exhibit opening, our fourth, as part of gay pride week. Anyway, I will definitely have your suggestions done asap.
