Unlike when you’re driving a car, heavy traffic on the web is wanted. Whether you’re trying to sell speakers online, find new customers, utilize ad programs to earn an income or simply want more visitors to your blog, the goal is to get more click-throughs and people to stay on the site. Once these visitors are there, you can wow them with a well-designed page, useful information or great graphics, but getting them to visit in the first place is the tricky part.
While you can pay for advertisements to encourage users to find your site, the most cost-effective way to increase traffic is by optimizing your web page for search engines. SEO has been proven time and again to work. Luckily, it’s not as difficult as you may think to optimize your page. A few simple WordPress tools, and some simple tasks you can do yourself go a long way towards improving the overall effectiveness of your marketing efforts.
Blogger High is a suite of programs that work with WordPress to get your rankings up quickly and easily. Each of the programs are available with a free trial, and if you decide to keep using them, the prices are very reasonable. The SEO plug-in helps you optimize your already existing content for the web for a fraction of the cost of hiring an SEO expert. Autocomment + helps your blog posts look popular and increases the value of your page in the eyes of the search engine. The other plug-ins each have a specific job and work similarly to products that cost much more.
SEOPressor also provides many SEO-related services. Unlike Blogger High, this program is available in one package. Therefore, if you want several products, this may be the best value for you. This plugin works easily with WordPress, so you do not need any additional knowledge to get started. The program was well developed and boasts success getting dozens of pages to rank #1 on Google with very competitive keywords.
While these tools are useful, you can also help your page ranking yourself with a few simple steps. The most basic step is making certain you choose the right keyword to rank. You may want to rank for “Canadian building contractors” but if you do your research you’d find this keyword has massive competition. However, you could much more easily rank for “Toronto building contractors” “Montreal building contractors” or “Calgary building contractors.” A few minutes of careful keyword research can save you hours of work later and provide much more satisfactory results when you start trying to improve your page traffic. Another simple trick is making certain you take advantage of every possible place to add searchable content. Don’t forget to offer an “About Us” section where you can include many important keywords related to your field.
These are a few useful tips but there are many methods and tricks to help you raise awareness and traffic to your site. Some reading and experimentation will go a long way in helping you not only gain new viewers but also to have content that will make them stay and return.
