Many times, people have a website up but have the problem of not enough people visiting the website that they spent so much money and time creating. If you are one of those, consider that a problem of the past; I’ll give you the top 5 ways to make your website have more than enough traffic;
- Search Engine Optimization
Typing a few keywords in the Google search is not enough assurance that your domain will be clicked on… People rarely make it till page 3. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a way of improving on your site’s rankings in the internet search engines. It is quite on the pricey side but the benefits are much more than you can imagine; people always look at the results on the first page. No lie.
I am always sure to inform my clients that when you are creating a website, pictures are the ones that determine the feel of the website. Good quality pictures will always catch the visitors’ eye but poor quality pictures will always make them look for the next best website so always make sure you have good pictures on your website.
- Update the Information
Nobody likes to visit a website over the months and never find any new information or content. A website is like a baby, well… not exactly a baby but you get my point. You have to make sure you always change the diapers; throw out the old information and put in some new. The Content Management System (CMS) enables you to do that on your own, daily even. Keep the visitors entertained and they will always come back for more.
- Change is Good
After a year or two, trends are bound to change and so should you; re-design your website! Do not rely on the same look for the rest of your web presence life. What you wore when you were in high school is not in the same line with what you are wearing right now and the same story applies to a website. The website you created 2 years ago does not look as good as the ones your competitors have right now, so always be sure to keep up with the times.
- Make Every Visitor Feel Special
As annoying as those online pop-up surveys might be, I always have a little joy in my opinion counting even if it is just one among many. Almost every website visitor would like to feel like they add a little to a website, so always make sure you have a feedback section asking for their opinion on the website and how they think you can make it better. Social network sharing options are also very vital; they spread word about your website.
