Building a website is a great way to promote your business, but if you have no website traffic you might as well have built a neon sign on the bottom of the ocean. Sure, it looks great, but only the fishes will be able to see it (and they really don’t care). So how do you get more website traffic? Let’s take a look!

Content, of course, is an important factor. If you have enough quality content you can own your specific market. Keep your readers engaged and if possible post gripping content frequently. If you’re only blogging part-time and find you don’t have the time to post frequently, then don’t – the chances are you’ll be rushing, and your readers will most probably become aware of that. Instead spend a longer period of time on a very high-standard article. The use of your keywords (the ones you want to rank well for) is a major consideration.

In our current society, social media sites (such as Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc) are also a great way to drive traffic to your site. Make sure to have these links available and spread the word! Also, visit other blogging sites in the same category as your own and engage in the community. You expect people to comment on your blog yet you never comment on theirs, or anyone elses for that matter? Commenting on other blogs can be a great way to drive website traffic to your site: there’s an incredibly likely chance they will like the content on your site if they found you though another blog in the niche.

Make genuine efforts to be friendly and helpful to people on the net (or anywhere), and they’re more likely to check out your stuff. Welcome new visitors, leave feedback and give links, ratings, and recommendations to people’s work. What goes around comes around.

And, as always, you can allow the specialists at Red Rocket to dive into your site and bring it to the surface for everyone to admire. Just contact us today!
