Change your site! That's right, if
you want the edge in this
highly competitive market, you need to change your site now!
In order to increase your traffic you need to change the content
on your site to reflect current trends. By this I don't mean
simply changing a few words, layout etc etc, I mean really
changing it to keep ahead of your competition by providing
services that people really want.
This by no means has to affect the theme of your site, you
simply need to enhance it to provide additional much sort after
services or products. If you're happy with the amount of
visitors your site is currently receiving, and I doubt you are,
then leave it as it is, but if you want more visitors, and you
want your visitors to keep coming back, then read on!
Let's get to the how's and the why's.
Firstly find out what people want, what they're really looking
for. If you can offer this service or product, people are more
than likely to buy it from you. Remember they're looking for it
because they want it and if you provide it, chances are they'll
buy it from you.
To find out what people are looking for go to a site like Searchwords.com. If you think you know what the most popular
search word at the moment is, you may be somewhat surprised when
I tell you its MP3. That's the word now, but things change so
fast in this technical age, you need to keep a close eye on this.
There are two major reasons for doing this. Firstly, if people
want it and are looking for it and you consistently fill this
need, you will soon establish a reputation for always being
"hot". Make the most of the current trends why they're
happening. I am not talking about words that have always been
searched for or products and/or services you would not want to
associate your site with, but new and different trends. If you
discipline yourself to check these trends on a regular basis,
you can offer the desired services long before the word is out
and everybody else is doing the same thing. This is a major key
to how successful you will be - act fast and stay ahead!.
In order to have your own site ranked well with the search
engines, you need to have relevant keywords in your metatag
area. What could be better than having the most popular search
words in your own metatags? Of course you would have to have
that content on your own site. If people are searching for Holly Janion, and you have Holly Janion in your metatags, be sure to
contain information on Holly Janion somewhere within the content
of your site. How many times have you looked for something via
the search engines and visited the sites to find they have
nothing to do with the subject in hand. This is a dirty trick
and won't do the Webmaster any favors in the long run. Be
professional; make sure your metatags correctly reflect the
content on your site.
1. By changing your content regularly, your visitors will come
back often because you offer the services they want. Your site
is interesting and doesn't have the same old stuff on month in
and month out. By keeping your site content current, you will be
one step ahead of your competitors.
2. You'll be seen as a site that is current, knows what is going
on, a true professional. This will increase your visitor
returns. If someone has purchased from you once, they will be
more likely to purchase from you again. Look after your current
visitors; don't lose them to other sites that keep current!
3. If your main theme is kitchens but everyone is looking for
MP3, add it to your site. It doesn't have to be a huge section,
that detracts from your theme at all, something small will be
enough. Remember just because I'm on your site looking at
kitchens, doesn't mean I don't have any other interests!
4. Don't depend totally on people using kitchens as a keyword.
You know they they're using MP3, so use it too - get them to
5. You'll still get the visitors you would have had anyway as
kitchens is still your main metatag word and what your site is
about. This method only increases your site visitors. You're
getting visitors that weren't looking to buy a kitchen at the
moment but may soon be, or know people who are, and now they
know you provide a great kitchen service.
