    If you have checked your traffic and the result is low traffic to your site, then it could be due to :1. Your website is not competitive in "keyword" you use for your website, so you can not get traffic from search result of users2. Absolutely your website is not well known, so you can : - join relevant forums - be active in social networking - submit article to directories like ezine, Amazines, etcAnother way is you can buy traffic but it is not longer solution.

    for traffic analysis you need to find the data like traffic from different sources like organic, referral and direct . keywords through which you got more traffic and which keywords not performed well from previous or last month data, geographically analysis of traffic.

    I am not really going indepth with my traffic analytics. Here is what I do:
    - I look at the overall daily visitors stats
    - I find the most popular pages of my site (very useful because it shows me what my visitors want to read more about)
    - I compare months and longer time intervals to find long-term traffic development trends
    - and I look at the places my visitors are coming from (this one is more for fun, it's interesting to see).

    I am not really deeply analyzing individial pages or something like this. Interesting topic.

    The most useful insights I got is analyzing bounce rates (and conversions) for category pages. It can quickly reveal systemic problems and usually they can be solved fairly easily. Also tracking conversion on the keyword level for both ppc and organic search and then using that information for increasing the performance for both channels.
