Although I didn’t realize it at the time, one of the biggest reasons that I had not started building my own website was the fact that I had no idea how I would actually get people to visit my site? How could I start getting “traffic” or people clicking and using my website? Thinking of all the competition out there I thought, “how could I possibly compete with the other guys”. I remember back in the 1990’s there was a good friend of mine that started out building a website for his wife’s Boss who had a small dental practice. He had virtually no experience beforehand. I remember within a few years he was building and hosting websites and has been very successful to this day. He now has several employees working for him. I was really intrigued by what he accomplished right from his own home.
Keys To Better Website Ranking And Traffic
Fast forwarding a number of years I finally learned the secret, you could say, about driving traffic to any website. I figured out that anyone can learn the techniques. Heck, if I can do them I know you can. Well, what is it? I’ve listed the key ways below:
1. The first thing that you must do is begin to put together keywords (which are really phrases), that have a low (QSR) or competition. You can see an example here. I just did a search in google for “burn belly fat today” and you can see what popped up first. This is Kyles website. He is ranked #1 for this keyword. By the way, he is also the co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate. It shows he knows what he’s doing. Heres what you want to do. You want to start building your content in the first paragraph of your webpage using at least one of the keywords that you find. Then, you want to add a minimum of 1-2 additional keywords within the rest of your content of that page. You will do this for each consecutive page that you develop. There are different tools available to find your keywords. One way is through the keyword tool finder within Wealthy Affiliate. You have 30 free searches, which will be plenty to get you started. There is also the Alphabet soap method, which is discussed within the free training. Finally, you can use Jaaxy, which is a super powerful word tool program. You can sign up for free and receive 25 searches to begin with at no cost.
2. The next step is to make sure that your content is engaging and unique. This will be a key factor in acquiring the best SEO rankings within google and the other major search engines. You want to make sure your writing is original and interesting to others. You may feel that you are not a great writer. Trust me, you can do it. Remember that you want to choose a niche or theme that you are passionate about. This way the content “will happen”. You will be surprised how the thoughts will just start flowing! Understand that you don’t have to be perfect. What the search engines are looking for is websites that have content that is informative and useful to the readers.
3. The third way to drive traffic to your site is by making sure that your website is active. What I mean by this is you want to continue to add new pages and posts within your website. Google loves this! It shows that there is continued activity and updates to your site. There are many companies out there with websites that don’t understand this simple concept. For any of you that may already have a website built may still be wondering, “how can I increase my website ranking”?” Well, the tips included here will help you tremendously. You will find that you will surpass much of the competition out there just using these techniques. Also, another key to maintaining and even increasing traffic to your website is by inviting individuals to leave comments. You want to make sure to respond to these comments, whether they’re positive or negative. Comments play a large part in search engine rankings. I don’t know about you, but I was really surprised to learn about this. When you start building your website within Wealthy Affiliate you will see thatblogging and commenting plays a big role! When I first started out, I was actually a little turned off by all of the commenting within the Wealthy Affiliate site. It wasn’t until later that I realized that this is what helps to make a website successful.
