We have just started our site, http://www.SickLines.com, about 3 weeks ago. We currently have about 1900 distinct hosts since our inception with about 1400 within the last 7 days. Is this a good statistic? The only advertising we have done is put the link to the site in our signature in the major forums we post in and post a few (about 3) posts promoting new content. We're really looking to take the mountain bike community head on to become a central source. Does anyone have a good set of goals for amount of unique visitors to strive for? What about advertising? How long did it take many of the big blogs to make decent money from ads? We plan on implementing AdBrite and AdSense soon, but really want to get major support from retailers and product manufacturers. Thanks for any assistance.
