I've graduated my site on StackEgg, and now a new stat called "Traffic" appeared alongside the other four.

However, whatever I do, it doesn't seem to gain hearts.

What am I missing?

    I was going to migrate this to Meta, but then realized that it's technically a question about a video game AND about our engine, so it's on-topic for either. :) – Jaydles Mar 31 '15 at 15:58
  • Do what I did: close it when you have some questions and quality, and the traffic will grow. I don't know if this is the right way, but it worked! I came back with only 2 hearts missing (1 on quality and 1 on answers). – Ismael Miguel Mar 31 '15 at 17:14

The value of traffic goes up or down by a certain amount each day, depending on the displayed value for Quality and Answers:

                      Answers
        |  -1  |   0  |   1  |   2  |   3  |   4  
  ——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————
    -1  | -0.8 | -0.8 | -0.8 | -0.5 | -0.4 | -0.2 
Q ——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————
u    0  | -0.8 | -0.8 | -0.8 | -0.5 | -0.4 | -0.2 
a ——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————
l    1  | -0.8 | -0.8 | -0.8 | -0.5 | -0.4 | -0.2 
i ——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————
t    2  | -0.5 | -0.5 | -0.5 | -0.2 | -0.1 |  0.1 
y ——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————
     3  | -0.4 | -0.4 | -0.4 | -0.1 |  0.0 |  0.2 
  ——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————+——————
     4  | -0.2 | -0.2 | -0.2 |  0.1 |  0.2 |  0.4 

-1 means red/critical

So Answers plus Quality has to be greater than six to at least break even.

From the description of "Answer"

Posting answers is what your Site's life is all about. Only with many answers (and high quality!) can it attract traffic.

  • 4 Answer + 4 Quality next Round -> Answer -> Still no traffic
  • 2nd Answer -> 1 Traffic

Also not completely true the above the following just happened:

  • 3/3/2/3/1 -> Question -> +1 Traffic
  • 3/3/2/3/2 -> Question -> +1 Traffic

So Questions can attract traffic too.

    From what I've seen, it's not the action you take, but the values of the Answers and Quality stats that drive traffic. – user2357112 Mar 31 '15 at 23:42
  • @user2357112 In order for your Site's traffic to grow (and not shrink again!), it must consistently offer lots of good help to the world – and that means continuously keeping both its answers and its quality high. – Schism Apr 1 '15 at 0:27
