I have a dining and nightlife website thats local to the Boston area and the surrounding towns. Its been up and running for awhile now, but the site traffic sucks (~10-20 unique users a day, not including search spiders). Being more of a techie, the marketing thing is proving to be quite difficult for me. I've done SEO, offered money in the form of contests, told everyone and their mothers about it, and yet I cant get it to grow.
The majority of our hits comes from google SERPS, certain establishments we rank in the top 5 so I think im doing something right regarding that aspect. The problem is, a user will come to a restaurant or bars main page, get the info they need, then leave. I'm in the process of adding a new fetaure on these pages that suggest similiar establishments to the user, in hopes that they may navigate the site a bit more. Other than that, im not sure what else to do...
the site is www.QuestingStone.com
Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated!
