Converting Visitor Traffic to Sales and Length of Stay..
If say your blog or website is receiving 1000 visitors a day as an example the first thing you want to do is look at the length of stay per visitor. A good statistics program will help there (statcounter.com has a good free service for this). What you want to look for is are at least 50% of your visitors staying for over 6 seconds.. If around 50% are staying longer then well done, you pass the first test.. If most visitors are leaving within 6 seconds, then you need to make your website more reader friendly and look at the template you are using as well.. This needs to be worked on until you have a good amount of visitors hanging around on your website.
