Web traffic is the statistical figure that represents the amount of visitors a Web site has. Traffic is calculated by the amount of data sent and requested by a visitor and the links and/or web pages they click and navigate to the moment they arrive at your Web site is monitored. The more visitors the Web site gets, the more traffic it has. In a way, the amount of traffic the Web site gets is a means of knowing how popular the Web site is.
Because Web site traffic is measured by the links and the length of time a visitor stays on a specific page, the Web master will be able to know which content is popular on his site. With this information on hand, they will be able to change a few things on their site and dole out Internet traffic in the entire Web site.
Web Traffic can be tracked using different online resource tools available on the net. Some of these tools are free to use, some you need to purchase a license to install it on your Web site. Those free tools are easy to use but their interpretation may be hard to interpret in contrast to paid tools.
