    1. Hi Nirmala,

      You make some good points in this post. I have to agree with Atish, though, that targeted traffic is what you should aim at -you need to attract the kind of people who are sufficiently interested in what you have to offer that they’re going to be prepared to purchase from you. Tons of unfocused traffic won’t necessarily win the day.

      Lots of good tips, though – thank you!
