What are some ways to define my traffic and overall users?

One of the best ways to define your typical visitor is to create personas.

Personas are representations of your visitors based on the data you have on your traffic.

They help you understand the goals of your user and adapt your interface accordingly.

Here are the main questions you can ask in order to create a targeted persona:

Who is your visitor?

  • Where is he from?
  • What’s his annual income?
  • What’s his level of education?
  • Is he the type to use the Internet to access sites such as yours every day?
  • Does he purchase things on the web?

Why is he on your website?

  • What are the most visited pages?
  • What are the most commonly searched keywords?
  • What are the most clicked spots / elements?

How is he on your website?

  • What type of device is he using?
  • What’s his OS?
  • What’s the size of his screen?
  • What’s the speed of his connection? (is he on dial up?)

What are heatmaps and why are they useful?

Heatmaps are visual representations. They’re visual cues you can refer to to see the most clicked or frequented areas of a website. In other words, they give you a visual breakdown of visitor behavior.

Heatmaps are one of the most efficient ways to assess the design of your landing pages.

By being able to visualize the behavior of your traffic, this allows you to analyze the overall behavior of your audience as a whole. In many ways, heatmaps allow you to spot the attractive (and most popular) areas of your site, and the sections that nobody cares about.

In practical terms, you can decipher or confirm what behavior was expected, and also learn a thing or two about unexpected user-behavior.

Between PPL, PPS, and Revshare, is there a “best” payout type?

If there was one clear winning payout type or formula, there’s a good chance we’d only be offering this one specific type ourselves.

So, no, there’s really no universal answer to the question of which payout type is THE best.

Each and every single one of us needs to figure out for ourselves what type of payout fits his or her own needs—and the spending habits of their visitors.

You can’t do it without providing great content

  • Make use of what’s available

Remember this, boys and girls:  the big boys are our friends.
