When a business owner builds a website sometimes they are under the impression that if they build it, traffic will flow automatically. But, this is not true. You’re going to ensure that you build the site with getting traffic in mind. The fact is, if you want more targeted traffic to your website you can have it as long as you create a plan and follow it, adapting along the way if you have to.
The first rule is to realize that getting targeted website traffic is almost all about website content, but it is also about building a user friendly and search engine friendly website.
It’s also important in your quest for more targeted traffic to your website is having enthusiasm for your niche, as well as the drive to do what need to be done. Whether you do it all yourself, or you outsource much of the work, it does not matter. What matters, is sticking to something that has been proven to work for the tasks at hand.
Another important factor is understanding how a website gets traffic.
Search engines often change how they rank websites so you cannot ever count on what works today to work tomorrow when it comes to certain activities. But, you CAN count on the fact that good, informative, engaging, keyword rich content will always be an important component in your website if you want targeted traffic. You should be proud of the content that you provide your visitors on your website. There are little extra touches you can add to make the content that is on your website even more attractive to humans, and search engines alike.
Original Page Titles
Every single blog post, and every single page of your website should have its own unique name. Ensure that you set up your website so that this is true. With a blog, each blog post is a new page in your site even though it doesn’t always look like that from your end or the readers end, but it does to the search engine. The non blog pages need to be given original names with important keywords in mind.
Create Compelling Headlines
While your headlines should entice the reader to look further, the headline also needs to contain keywords and not be too full of puns the way print media can often be. Have the keywords in the beginning of the title if possible because that is how the search engines look at your website.
Write Informative Descriptions
If you don’t have a plugin for your website to write a description about each piece of content you add to your website then get one. It’s easy if you use a self hosted WordPress blog! Remember that if you want the beginning of the description to contain keywords and to describe your content well. If you don’t have a plugin keep in mind where a search engine picks up the description from content towards the top of the website.
Continually Add Great Content
You need to add great content to your website on a very regular basis. Most experts agree that adding a new keyword rich blog post at least three to five times a week is an important, if not the most important component to getting more targeted traffic to your website.
How about you? How often do you post to your blog?
