Any webmaster worth his or her pay should begin a web site evaluation with looking at the web site content. Now, this doesn’t mean you need hundreds of pages of content. That depends entirely upon the subject of your website. Some sites need more content than others. Your webmaster should be able to tell you if you have a reasonable amount, and if it’s valuable enough to your visitors to help bring in targeted traffic.
Your titles need to have a benefit in them and it needs to be exciting. People are bored in this world – make it your mission to entertain as many people as you can through your contents and you will do well. I don’t have to teach you how to do it – I’ll be the idiot in this article and tell you to go look at the other articles that focus on telling you how to write good titles. I’m not covering it in this one.
But if you listen to the so called search optimisation experts, you could be waiting for quite a while! Fact: On site Seo is a long term investment that most of us simply can’t afford, in today’s economy, to wait on to reap the rewards.
Next comes the design. If you’re missing an effective website design – if it’s hard to navigate, or is confusing, or has too much happening on every page – it’s time for an overhaul. Less is more for nearly all websites. Visitors will find the information you want them finding if the design isn’t screaming for attention on every page.
Sixth use the keywords that you had earlier and build content around your site “articles” at least 30 to start off with – to give your blog a boost in traffic. Submit them to article directories and see if you can guest blog with a link intact on other similar sites.
Patience and determination. Although content marketing is known be an extremely effective tool, it doesn’t work overnight. You can’t really expect a huge amount of traffic to your website the day after you’ve published a couple of articles or the day after you launched your blog. You’ll need to wait some time for people online to really notice you. The key here is to never lose hope and to always do your best in giving these people nothing but the best.
Everywhere you look things are going through the roof. No sooner does Bing release figures showing that its usage since the ‘decision engine’ marketing campaign hit the television screens has leapt 22%25 (22%25 of a pretty small number to be fair), or that Beckham powered Yahoo took an extra 7%25 of the search market in June, than Facebook is announcing it’s 500 millionth user – Hi 5s to Lincoln Mybo of Flickut.
