Some Actionable Ideas For Driving Traffic To Your Site

Lack of website traffic is one of the most familiar challenges I hear from business owners. Many report having lost a meaningful percentage of their search traffic over the past year or two, and are continuously looking for new ways to drive applicable traffic to their site.

Tips & Tutorials

This article is trying to give marketers and business owners a whole battery of straight-to-the-point, actionable tips for getting traffic to your website or blog. While some of these strategies won’t be a quick fix, you may be surprised how quickly many of them start to generate results.

1. Focus on long-tail keywords:

The days of focusing on a single keyword for each page are long gone. Make sure your posts include all the applicable terms and phrases related to your topic.

Got your high commercial intent keyword bases covered? Then it’s time to target long-tail keywords, too. Long-tail keywords account for a majority of web searches, meaning that if you’re not targeting them as part of your paid search or SEO efforts, you’re missing out.

2.Blog, blog, blog:

Today’s internet users have very short attention extent and even shorter memories. If your content is not in their face all the time, you’re likely to miss out on a significant quantity of your potential blog traffic.

Blogging really does drive traffic. We recently ran an experiment where we increased our blogging from twice per week to over 10 posts per week. The result was a 300 percent increase in traffic in just two months. . But, if you’re going to blog, you better do number nine.

3.Build good links:

Link building is fabulously important for websites. This is the process of creating links that point to your page from other pages. This will happen naturally as you create quality content, but there are some things you can do to help build links yourself.

Trading links with other websites that are jointly related to the subject of your website can bring you more website traffic. These are two-way links because you must provide a link to them, too, and linking to low-quality websites can threaten the probability of yours. Only link to sites that are dead on topic, and truly help your visitors.

4. Write Charming Headlines:

Quality articles will get ranked better in search results. Make sure that your articles address the needs of your readers, and that they can find all of the information they need in one spot. This is the most effective means for increasing traffic to a website; offering people something that they cannot obtain elsewhere, or at least, not to the level of quality that you are offering it.

Create content that is helpful and useful. Simply arranging together information from another website will not generate traffic. You need to provide visitors the information they need to reach a goal, figure out a problem, be entertained, find out quality news, or just have a good laugh.

Avoid content generators. While these were once the delight of a emerger web industry, they are no longer useful. Putting your own team's creativity online is what is useful.

Never copy and paste from another website - Google, Yahoo, MSN and other search engines are too smart for this nowadays and will detect copied and unoriginal content, sending you to the bottom of the heap.

Headlines are one of the most main parts of your content. Without a enthralling headline, even the most inclusive blog post will go unread. Master the art of headline writing. For example, the writers at BuzzFeed and Upworthy often write upward of twenty different headlines before finally settling on the one that will drive the most traffic, so think carefully about your headline before you hit “publish.”

5.Enhance With Multimedia:

 As more people find multimedia experiences online, video is appearing higher in search results. Believe hosting a video on your site, whether it’s an opening or how-to kind video. The video can be added to external platforms such as YouTube to make the best use of exposure.

 With constant mistake and some tweaking, your digital marketing campaign can lead to increased website traffic and can help get new business leads in the door.

 Use social media as it was intended and actually interact with your fans.
