Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
My next goal is to somehow push it towards a PERMANENT flow of say 1000 per day?
What is the most time/money efficient way to do so?
Create lots of valuable content, that gets indexed by SEs and visitors will come.
Get links from other sites
And the most important: read here on WW
important forums here: Advertising, Google (please consult the knowledge base), Adwords, Content & Copywriting
Example, my 60 page site gets around 50-100 hits/day
If I had 1000 pages, and if each got a hit a day, I'd get 1000/day.
But in most instances, a 1000 page site would get more then 1 hit/page/day, it'd get around 10/hits/page/day
so the trick to any site is just building useful, optimized, easy to find content.
More pages increases your PR sometimes too, if you extensively cross-link!
