All have been searching for a magic wand to bring huge traffic to our Web site. Many wonder if there is any password to the eternal mystery of online traffic. But the truth is there is no trick. We only have techniques that require dedication and consistency.
Here are top 10 techniques which can bring more traffic to your Web site in 2014, as suggested by Promotion World.
Social media networking has revolutionized our use of the Internet. Trends in the social networking Web sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are growing stronger each day. Ensure that you share your work with proper links on these platforms. There are several means which can directly bring users to your Web site.
Nothing beats good content. If your articles are rich in content, people are easily attracted to them. You can submit your articles to many Web sites and provide link to your own Web site.
Get involved in forum discussions. As you do it earnestly, you create an outside opportunity for your articles. You also start building rapport with people. When you get interested in their work, they get interested in return. Read others' articles. Comment on them. Appreciate them.
The basic structure of search engines has been evolving all the time. What worked in 2013 may not work in 2014. It is always important to keep your Web site fresh with regular updates and posts. Be aware of the way search engines work. Get to know how people can find your posts more easily.
Another best way of promoting your Web site is publishing newsletters. The format of the newsletter must be interactive. It should give a strong idea about what you do or where your expertise lies. You can always make it humorous as it makes the newsletter more interesting. However, beware of local culture and sentiments. Do not be offensive without even being aware of it.
You must start having a blog if you do not have one. Micro-blogging on Twitter works but a full-fledged blog may work wonders. Your Tweets are not likely to find a place in search engines but your blog is. Somehow major search engines like Google give more importance on content, which is lengthier.
You can start a podcast service where people can download digital files related to your field of work. If you are an actor, you can keep downloadable video files on your Web site that highlight your performances. Do not forget to leave the link to your Web site on the file so that people can come back to your Web site.
Another way of getting the public attention is opting for mobile marketing. Make it a point that your Web site is mobile-friendly. More people prefer surfing the net on their smartphones than doing it on a computer. 2014 is likely to see a giant leap in the mobile marketing business.
If you can manage to take an interview of a well-known personality, it can add up to your benefits. You may not be able to approach an international celebrity like Miley Cyrus or Lady Gaga. Try local celebrities. When people search for them, they can automatically visit your Web site.
When you attach your content with video, you tend to attract more people. 90 percent of online shoppers get more influenced where there is a product video. 2014 may be the year when things will be sold only after watching it.
