HUGE LIST of Traffic Sources and Ad Networks
Moving on to traffic sources, different sites, even ones focused on the same topic, can have dramatically different referral mixes. Some may get high amounts of search-referred traffic, or have dedicated readers coming to them directly, while others thrive on referral traffic from other sites. Generally, search-referred traffic performs the best in terms of ad-clicking behavior, followed by traffic coming from outside websites. These users have come to the site often not knowing precisely what they’re looking for, making a relevant ad all the more attractive. So how can you beef up these more valuable traffic sources?
