WOW! I was actually looking for a post which goes through ways one could improve their business and this did just that.
My business is really in need of visitors both organic and direct. I’ve tried quite a few ways to gain this however it only lasts for a little while. What I really need to improve on is SEO and organic traffic. It seems like this takes place through great quality content as well as other factors you have mentioned here.
Thanks for all this!
Organic traffic can take a while because we have to earn the search engines trust first Sarriyah. While that is building, it’s a good idea to share your content/blog posts, regularly on social media. It all helps.
If you don’t yet have accounts on all the main platforms, it’s a good idea to create them and start to build a following. These days social media is a very important part of a business. It lets people know we are here much faster than Google will.
Thank you for reading and your comments. Good luck with your business.
I have been enjoying these tips. I know that having our posts go viral takes a lot of trial and error. But we can also learn from the advice other bloggers give us, as you. Being able to connect with our niche is the key point. There usually is a gap between most posts and the intended audience. If we fill in that gap, we make it!
Glad you enjoyed them Ann. Bringing a lot of traffic does take trial and error plus time. Google has to trust us and that takes months of consistent content creating. I agree about connecting with the niche. Social media can help find that audience too.
Thank you for reading and commenting.
A lot of the ways you list to explode my business I have been telling myself I need to do. Do you know of the best site for swapping links or possibly articles? I really have no idea how I would look for somebody to possibly have my article published. I need to start working on this to get more visitors to my site for sure.
You can leave links on many sites Leahrae.
‘Mix’ is good, it used to be Stumbleupon which was brilliant for traffic. MeWe and Webtalk are ones I also use. They are all free to join and each time you publish a new blog post yu just add the link to those platforms the same way you do to your social media accounts.
I find Pinterest and Twitter excellent for traffic as well. I haven’t done article exchanges or guest posting, personally but if you google it I am sure you will get a variety come up. The more platforms you are on and share to the wider the audience that gets to see your work.
Hope this helps. Thank you for reading and commenting.
