    It depends - if it's a free blog it's a pretty good start, but it isn't what would really be considered as high. High is thousands to someone like me, tens of thousands to most of the other people here on DP.

    Personally, I don't consider that number for a high traffic site. I would say somewhere around 5k at least.

    Not Hardly, but it's a good start. It also depends on what your site is about. If your site is about underwater basket weaving in Russia, chances are that you could have the top site and only have 500 uniques. If it's a more general site or about a more popular topic, then you should get more.

    Just hang out around here and you'l learn ways to get your #'s up there.

    High traffic is all relative.

    2 years ago, when my site was brand new I was managing to get 1K uniques a month. At that time, I considered my traffic would be high if I could get it to 10K a month, but now, it gets over 100K uniques/mth and I consider this to be low - see how things change over time.

    At the moment I consider 500K uniques a month to be high, but when I get there, I will no longer consider it to be high!

    500 visitors per day would be considered pretty high for a new website.

    However, it would definitely not be considered a high traffic site.

    Look at Google and YouTube, these websites receive 10 million + visitors per day.

    I think at least a thousand visitors per day can be considered high.

    Hmm, depends on how high we each set the bar. I don't think 500 is that high.

    You can get that on a site fairly easily, after a few months of work. Am still working on cracking the 1000 - then the 5000 lol.

    Like the others said - it is also dependant on the niche, so will naturally be bringing in more traffic.

    My view on a high traffic site is this:

    28,571,429 page views/month.

    Now why 28,571,429 page views/month you ask? Simple:

    AS records roughly 70% of actual page views due to javascript being disabled or AS ads being blocked so 70% of 28,571,429 page views/month results in 20000000.3 page views/month being recorded by AS which means you can be a premium publisher and that honor means you have a high traffic site.

    500 is a good start but not high. im sure you can hit the 1k mark soon and then youll be on your way to high traffic.

    That could be a substantial figure for a day.
