What is an organic website?

The inspiration for many of the ‘Ask a Web Nerd’ episodes comes from email questions sent to me. This time around, someone contacted me to find out what an organic website was.

In a nutshell:

An organic website is a website that derives most of it’s traffic organically. OK, so what is ‘organic’ traffic?

Organic traffic is traffic that comes to you by why of direct type-ins, natural search engine results and links coming in from other websites.

… Basically, it is traffic that does not come in from ads/links you have paid for. Check out the podcast for details and tips on creating organic websites.

    Interesting video. Any chance you can add download links for the MP3’s though? I’d rather listen to a bunch of these on my MP3 player while making my way to work.
