In the new world of communication; information is the currency; and the sale is the by-product.
There are ways to dramatically increase the traffic to your website without spending a dime on marketing or promotion. In addition, the way of doing it will also ensure that you rank higher on search engines.
The secret is to continually develop quality content in the form of blogs or articles. This adds additional pages to your website; which the search engines pick up as “new content” and continuous activity on your website. This is a great SEO strategy for higher rankings.
Make sure however that you create valuable content. Think about the effect you want your writing to have on people. Remember that the purpose of content is to provide value to others. Is your content worthy of being read by millions of people?
Do you provide genuine value, and is it the best you’re capable of providing? When you focus on providing real value instead of churning out disposable content, your readers will notice; and in turn they will refer others to your website. Strong content is universally valued and although it is hard work to create it, it generates a lot of long-term referral traffic.
Create original content. You will not get the same effect by simply posting blog entries that merely link to what others are writing.
Sites that mainly post content from others have the potential to build traffic faster in the beginning, but original content sites are assured of keeping their traffic – creating a solid, long-term foundation.
It takes more effort to produce original content, but it is by far a better long-term strategy because it is hard to compete with an original content site.
Continuous content creation is extremely important to increase your website traffic and to improve your search engine rankings; but make sure that you are writing for people first and computers second.
Considering this, that means that you will write in such a way that you are treating your visitors as human beings. Remember, it is a real person on the other side reading your content.
Ultimately, what traffic growth is all about is ‘a real human being helping real human beings’ by sharing relevant and original content. That is precisely what a link or a referral is.
If you align yourself with such intention and write to genuinely share relevant information because you care; you will soon find yourself with an abundance of traffic.
