How to See How Much Traffic a Website Gets with WordPress
Do you have a WordPress site that you think is doing well, but you aren’t sure how much traffic it actually gets? You can find out with this simple trick: Just look at your Google Analytics.’s traffic stats for the site.’s URL (unfortunately, you’ll need a Google account to do this). Then, you’ll simply need to multiply this number by 2 to get an accurate estimate of how much traffic the site actually gets. This is assuming that your stats are correct and your site isn’t fake traffic (more on that later).
Why Go Through the Motions of Logging Into Google Analytics?
Before we get started, it’s important to note that even if you have a Google account, you won’t be able to use it to look up your WordPress stats directly within the search giant’s analytics platform. Why? Because Google keeps consumer privacy as a top priority and doesn’t want their service abused by marketers and spammers. So, if you want to know how much traffic a specific site gets, you’ll need to go through the motions of logging into Google Analytics and looking up the site’s traffic stats. In most cases, this won’t present a problem because even if you’ve never used the service, you’ll likely still have a good idea of what it is and how it works.
How to Log Into Google Analytics
If you log into Google Analytics using your email address and password, you’ll be able to get a quick look at your stats for the previous 60 days. Alternatively, you can access your Analytics data in a variety of ways, including through an android app or a web interface. If you go this route, you won’t need to log into Google Analytics every time you want to check your stats.
How Much Does a WordPress Site Get on Google?
Just like any other website, the popularity of a WordPress site on Google will depend on a variety of factors, including the site’s bounce rate, the amount of content on the page, and the quality of that content.
In most cases, you won’t have much trouble figuring out how much traffic a WordPress site gets on Google if you know how to use the search giant’s analytics platform. Just like with other websites, you can use the Google search bar to find out how much traffic a specific site gets. For example, if you want to know how much traffic myBlog.com gets on Google, all you need to do is search for myBlog.com on Google and look at the traffic stats that appear at the top of the results. (If you use Google’s mobile app, you can quickly and easily access these stats.)
In most cases, you’ll want to focus on the previous 60 days of stats in the search results because, well, that’s the last you’ll normally need to see. Why? Because most people aren’t exactly interested in surfing the web for days or weeks on end just to get a look at a website’s traffic stats. Just like with any other website, once you know how to use Google Analytics, it’s easy enough to keep up with your blog’s growth.
Is This Website’s Traffic Real?
Yes and no. It really depends on what you mean by “real” traffic. If you’re asking if the traffic is legitimate or if it’s a bot or a fake, the answer is no. It’s not. However, you should know that a large portion of this traffic is probably automated and not very accurate. Why? Because a lot of internet users click on sponsored ads and affiliate links as a way of earning extra revenue online. In most cases, these are the types of links that generate most of your web traffic.
What’s a Bot?
In the world of marketing and advertising, a bot (short for a robot) is a computer program that automatically triggers online activities, such as clicks or buys, on your behalf. While most people assume that bots are used only for spamming or performing automated tasks, that’s not true. In fact, many large websites and apps use bots to generate authentic online traffic (i.e., traffic that doesn’t come from Google Ads or affiliate links).
To be more specific, a bot typically refers to a program that mines the internet for data that it can use to generate content. This content is then disseminated via social media platforms or direct emails to lure in more leads and customers. Depending on the sophistication of the bot, it can either be good (i.e., a useful tool) or bad (i.e., a spamming tool). To learn more, you can check out this informative article from the New York Times. It details various ways that bots can be used for good and evil purposes alike.
How Do I Know if This Website’s Traffic Is Natural?
To determine how natural (as opposed to automated) your web traffic is, you need to first identify two things: the referrer and the landing page.
In most cases, your referrer will be your site’s URL (i.e., the address that you typed into your browser when you went to the site) because that’s the web address that was provided to Google when you performed a Google search that led you to the site. In some cases, your referrer might be the social media platform you used to get the word out about the site (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram).
As for the landing page, that’s the page (or pages) that you click on after you’ve been redirected to the site by your referrer. Depending on how you’re directed to the site, the landing page might be a simple web page or it might be an entire homepage with a variety of options, including a contact form, a shopping cart, or an opt-in box, to name a few.
As a general rule, you want to make sure that the traffic coming from high-quality, organic sources (i.e., people who found the site naturally), and not from low-quality, automated sources (i.e., traffic that’s artificially generated by a program). Just remember, a lot of this traffic is probably fake, so you might not want to put too much stock in these numbers.
How to Generate More Organic Traffic To Your Site
Now that you know what natural (as opposed to artificial) traffic is and how to identify it, you can brainstorm ways to generate more of it to your site. Just remember that a lot of this traffic is probably automated and not very consistent, so you might not want to get too excited about these numbers. That being said, if you want to continue growing your site organically, it’s easy enough to do.
Use Link Analysis to Your Benefit
When doing link analysis, you’ll want to analyze the traffic that comes from various sites and determine which sites are providing the most value, in terms of generating traffic and leads for your business.
To be more specific, you can use various tools, including Google’s own disavow tool, to clean up your reputation on the web. When you use this tool, Google removes links, indexed by their web crawler, that point to your website. Depending on how much power you have with this tool, it’s often a good idea to use it in conjunction with other SEO strategies. For example, if you want to rank for the terms “beauty tips for women,” you can use the disavow tool to remove links to your site from various platforms, including blogs and forums, and then you can use more conventional SEO techniques, such as content optimizatio, to rank for those terms. In most cases, you don’t need to use the disavow tool to start with because the links you receive from other websites, be it organic or otherwise, don’t affect your site’s SEO in any negative way. However, you should know that using this tool does remove the possibility of receiving some links, which is also good for your SEO.
Avoid Free Blogging Platforms
One of the major benefits of choosing to blog without spending a penny is that you don’t have to worry about hosting costs or adverts appearing in your content.
