HOW MUCH TRAFFIC DO YOU WANT?
By Mark Idzik
Did you know that you can decide how much traffic you want,
and then get it? It's easier than you think. Follow me on
First, you'll want to determine the current traffic to your
site. Then, calculate how much income those visitors brought
For example, say you have 4000 unique visitors per month. Over
the last few months, your site brought in an average of $250
per month. That means each visitor is worth $.06 to you.
Hmm, this is where it gets interesting. If you can double
your traffic, that will mean an additional $250! Now how
can you get that additional traffic and only pay a small
fraction of that $.06?

from our tests are getting better every day.
