    True, David.

    Traffic is a battle that every blogger, or for that matter, every site owner has to struggle with. The approaches above may seem a little obvious, but the truth is the basics seem to be where so many of us get derailed.

    So many bloggers seem to chase software to generate traffic for them, in an endless an perpetual pursuit of some sort of traffic “lottery” when in fact if they spent the same amount of time just covering the basics of quality content in even 4 or 5 articles each week, plus networking with sites of similar nature, their traffic would grow in a far more stable and renewable manner.

    Visitors love quality content, and will refer others to your site to share that quality content.

    I guess the long and the short of it is that SEO is important, but “VO”, or Visitor Optimization is more important, at least imho.

    If visitors like your site, they return to it frequently. The truth about seo in my experience has been that if visitors like your content, so does Google, and both of these translate directly into traffic gains.
