**

The amount of new vs returning visitors on your website can give you clues as to whether you site is performing well or poorly.

It the amount of new visitors is much higher it could mean that something on your website is keeping them from coming back. That might now always be the case, but its definitely something to consider.

On the other hand, if you have far more returning visitors, it might be time to start marketing your website some more.
