    My site has been running for around three weeks, however I only installed google analytics about two days ago on Thursday 26th Jan. Is this a good amount of traffic for a three week old forum over two or three days or not?


    Thanks in advance, Ben.

    If your goal is to get as much traffic as possible then no, it's not particularly good.

    More focused on the community than the traffic, but for a good community I need traffic. What would you say is a good figure over three days for a new forum?

    From those numbers, it suggests your not getting many repeat visitors which would be essential for a community websites.

    When I clicked on the site, it wasn't instantly obvious what the forum was about and there was no clear 'call to action' telling why I should, and how I can register.

    Your getting a steady level of hits, but it could be better. I'd look at ways of engaging your visitors better, encouraging them to register. :)

    Thanks for the reply :) I have added a new message for guests on the home page, what do you think? Does that clarify things?
