    [Blog] “Permanent” Traffic Doesn’t Exist on the Web
    One popular iPhone blog owner told me his reasoning for using Digg and other social media platforms had more to do with greater visibility in Google search results, particularly in news. What do people think social media professionals do for a living? They are not wizards like Gandalf. They can’t raise their staff and command visitors to become permanent residents of a site. If Gandalf had his way, all visitors would stay onsite. OK let’s say a digital strategist gets the visitors to a site. Good enough. They shouldn’t be mad because the bounce rate is high. Be patient.
