September 28th, 2010, 06:39 PM #1Traffic comes from the wrong places
As an affiliate working on SEOing my site, I travel a lot and working from the place I travel in. In the last few months I've been visiting a country and working on my site. To my surprise (and my dismay I might add) I am finding out that most of my traffic comes from the country I am working in. My site is a USA based and intended for the English speaking market and the traffic from this country is no use for me. What am I doing wrong? Can this be avoided?

If u have submitted the site to google webmasters tools - choose the optimize for United States option. If u havn't - submit the site to GWT and do so.
I think no traffic - specially free is bad. U can always slap on adsense. Some will definitely click. Find affiliate networks which ship worldwide, add a translation widget.

Good point Eathan.
If you are looking in GA, you can exclude your own IP from the stats. Go to the dashboard.
If you are looking at Alexa, the only way I know is not to have the Alexa toolbar installed.
