A lot of people get into a real flap about not having enough visitors to their site, but fail to concentrate on other matters of importance. The truth of the matter is that if you want to ensure that people focus on something, you have to first give them something to focus on. It should go without saying, but in matters of website popularity, the first and most important thing to concentrate on is that there is a reason for your website to be popular. As the line from the famous movie Field Of Dreams goes: “If you build it, they will come”.
Nothing succeeds like success. You will definitely get more traffic through to your blog if you give people reason to “sell” it to their friends. The surest way to do this is to make it something people will want to read. A great number of people surf the Internet in the same way every day. They log on, read their email and then check on their favorite sites. For many people, their favorite site is a blog – something written by a person with a similar profile to them who writes in a funny, interesting way.
Of course there is more that you can do to get your site in people’s minds in addition to making the site good. But nothing will guarantee a build-up of traffic like writing things that people want to read. The first rule of website traffic directing is to have a website that is worth directing traffic to.
