Hello Everyone, Can you Tell me Now, How I Can Improve my Website Traffic? Basically, My website traffic increasing day by day, but I don’t previous month my website traffic decreasing day by day, Please Tell me Now What I Can do to improve traffic on my website. Thanks I am waiting.
There’s no secret for growing traffic. There are many variables that affect that traffic and maybe you’re traffic is growing now because what you offer is good for the season we’re in, and that’s it.
The best that you can do is update content frequently with interesting, related information. And promote intelligently.
You can improve your website traffic by using off page techniques such as social media, social bookmarking, external forums, guest blogging, content marketing and re-purposing, info-graphics…
@AjitKhodke: a list of items like that is not of much help to a beginner, who may not understand what you mean by these terms. It is much more helpful to pick one item and explain how to do it.
For my benefit, could you please explain how “info-graphics” helps increase site traffic?
Content Marketing and paid campaign are the best ways to get traffic Attach both these activity with social media accounts and enjoy something extra.
To all posters: Please do not simply list techniques. That kind of reply is of little use to somebody who does not already know how to carry out such activities.
Instead, please choose one or two techniques you feel are most beneficial, and explain how to go about them.
Posts with insufficient detail may be removed as “fluff”.
AjitKhodke, I have already done these work, my website traffic by day decreasing. Furthermore, I have shared content on social media networks and I have submission on Guest Post and Join Forums, and I have updated website weekly basis, but previous since one month ago my website traffic decrease day by day.
Are you talking about direct traffic, or traffic from search engines, or all traffic?
None of those things will help to increase traffic unless they are done well, and you are posting stuff that is so genuinely interesting that people will feel motivated to visit your site to learn more. If you’re merely making token gestures in order to get your link seen, you might as well not bother.
If your website was getting more traffic, then that traffic decreased steadily. I’d suggest that you’re doing something wrong, review your last actions, find out what you did wrong, and stop it.
Capitalize on the strengths.
I don’t remember, please give me another suggestion, I will thankful to you.
I doubt I’d be saying anything you didn’t already know but here goes nothing:
The 5 Traffic Commandment;
Since Google is a harsh mistress, you want to play by its rules. Don’t trust any body who’ll tell you do this and do that, test for yourself, especially those who will teach you false principles that will not get you traffic but will get you penalized by Google.
- Your goal and focus is to create relevant content, specifically design it in a way that will appeal to the kind of visitor you want. This is the “secret” ingredient. Imagine the kind of content that is so good that the one who see it will want to share it, one invites two, two invites four and so on.
Remember that Google is watching everything, and will rank your website if you’re a good boy who provide VALUE.
- Make it your job to think and create, feed Google with information and Google will love you. Remember not any information, RELEVANT information is what Google wants and will reward for.
Don’t worry about others, focus on your shite please. Better yet, create a schedule it hasn’t to be strict but you have to keep the information coming.
- For Pete’s sake, learn some HTML, focus on Metadata, this is the language that Google love and understand. The most important being Title Metadata, Description Metadata, Keyword Metadata.
Nothing fancy, learning some HTML, it will give you some advantage and accelerate the process.
Be creative with your descriptions, try to strategically insert the most relevant keywords in them. Think: What terms and words that most likely the visitor will type in Google so that your website will pop up? This can complicated but try to understand how your visitor will think…
Beside catchy titles and descriptions, add videos and pictures, and other multimedia… Don’t forget to use the appropriate alt tags to each file you upload, don’t miss even one. If you break this Commandment, Google will not understand you and will ignore you as a result.
Follow and respect this Commandments religiously, and you’ll have an overflow of traffic, no luck involved.
It takes time, so be patient and avoid shortcuts as they’re actually dead ends. If you presist, it’ll take few weeks or few months, and all the traffic you want will be yours to have and to hold.
Good luck, and may the traffic be with you!
You can increase your website traffic with the help of SEO and SMM technique. Seo give traffic after get ranking of website on search engine.
SMM give traffic instant with the help of quality post on social media sites.
Never heard about SMM before, could you elaborate that?
It is important that you fill in the title and description metadata, but the keyword metadata is ignored by Google, so don’t waste time on that. But the page content is where they really determine what the page content is, strangely enough.
Thanks for the correction
If you need instant traffic, then work on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. and join relevant groups. And if you want to increase organic traffic, then follow all Google’s quality guidelines and target long tail keywords. Be remember, organic traffic will take some time to increase.
This is all pretty basic, but you should work on SEO for sure. SEA I would say is a “later on down the road thing.” No need to work on advertising and paying for it when you are still starting out. But SEO is broken down into multiple sections. First, you need to optimize your onpage content (which is the actual content on your website). This requires doing a keyword research so that you know which are the best keywords for you to use to optimize your site. This is a combination of the services your site offers and the type of brand you want to present yourself as. So, say I want to sell discount sandals in Miami Beach, I would try to figure out first what other people who are selling discount sandals in Miami Beach are ranking for. This means go and look at competitors websites and see how they are presenting themselves and how the sites are layed out. Then, with the use of Google AdWords, check into some of the keywords you see them using and use the suggest function to find more that you should be using. It will tell you how often a word is searched for. If you want this to be specific, you need to set the locational and language settings. Say, for the U.S. instead of globally. Then, you need to be careful not to fall into the trap of “wow this word has 10,000 people searching for it!” Why? Well, the obvious. It’s too vague and you will have too many people searching for this term and are not necessarily going to land on your site because your site isn’t giving them what they are actually looking for. So, for example just sandals is too vague and wouldn’t help you. You don’t know if the person is looking to buy, sell, or get ideas for a fashion blog article, etc.
The other side after finding the right keywords and writing your website content to include these keywords, is to work on building back links. This is having external sites and platforms posting a link back to your site. This can be on social media, your own personal blog, etc. Just keep in mind this is a slow and organic process, not an overnight type of thing. To be honest, all SEO practices and anything to do with gaining website traffic and increasing your website ranking are a long-term investment, not short. Nothing can increase your traffic overnight. And if anything promises to do so, it is either a lie OR it is a process that makes so many infractions that Google will end up penalizing your site. So in the end these practices will hurt you instead of help you.
But the bottom line for you will always be to continue producing good quality content. At the end of the day, you want to gain readers right? Not just satisfy Google.
I hope some of that helps.
@TechnoBear you referenced the comment @AjitKhodke and asked about how infographics may be used to increase traffic. I’m sorry if that was a rhetorical question, but infographics are definitely one good way to increase traffic.
- Create a helpful, wonderful and compelling infographic. Be sure to include links to your site, and add watermark.
- Include your very helpful infographic in a blog post.
- Blast your blog post on all social media outlets available, and drive people to your website to see your wonderful infographic.
- Find other website owners/bloggers, etc., in your niche or field, contact them, tell them about your wonderful infographic and offer to let them use the infographic on their own blog post in exchange for linking it back to your site and giving you credit (that’s rather blunt, but I’m sure you understand how to professionally contact someone else and ask this).
Hopefully you’ll see your infographic out there running around the sites in your niche, and hopefully you’ll receive more traffic, customers, etc (plus backinks), from that infographic. Plus you’ll get your name out there as an “authority” in your field.
I’ve used this technique myself, and the benefit was worth the time.
Thanks for the detailed explanation, @ManzanitaBeach; that was very helpful.
“Use infographics” is one of those catch-phrases bandied about on the forums in response to all sorts of questions - and you’re the first person who’s actually explained how. It’s always puzzled me, because an infographic is simply an image - and therefore the content is unavailable to search engines (or screen readers and others). But I can see now how it could be used to increase traffic, and also benefit SEO indirectly.
Thanks @TechnoBear! Being fairly new, I’m always a little concerned that I’m posting in the right way.
As a further example (and do let me know if I’m not supposed to use a link to one of my works), I created a blog about the weather in our area. We’re in the Pacific NW, and on the coast, so people always think “wet and cold.”
To offset that assumption, and because people search for information about the weather, I wrote a blog 5 Wrong Weather Forecast Assumptions About Manzanita Oregon, and created an infographic for it 2015 Weather/ Manzanita Oregon vs. US Averages In creating the Infographic, I tried to make it entertaining and visually appealing while presenting good information. I spent time on research before creating, and used reliable and respected sources.
After posting, and doing the usual social media blast, I contacted people in the area with websites who regularly publish material. Specifically, people who would want their readers to know that in fact, our weather is better than national averages (warmer in the off season, a mild temperature in the summer).
So this was a topic that would appeal to many to share, and also a topic that is searched on vacationers. Therefore, I drove traffic to my website by normal channels, I drove traffic to my website when others used my Infographic (and they did), and ultimately, when I was contacted for interviews by others as I am starting to be seen as an expert in my particular niche, through interviews I have also created traffic to my site.
One would pick a broader appealing topic if you wished to appeal to more bloggers and website owners, yet you’d still have to find a relevant topic and address it in a way that no one else has done (or hasn’t been overly addressed).
