There comes a time in every website’s life when it seems you’ve reached your maximum traffic and nothing seems to be going either way. So how much is too much traffic and what are the signs that tell you when to stop? When it comes to website traffic there is no such thing as being too much. Increasing your website’s visitors is a never ending game and it’s the only way we could stay ahead of our competitors.
So you’ve gone through the myriad of SEO strategies and have constantly churned up quality content through the years. But you just can’t go over the hump of this latest impasse. So what do you do? The worst thing that could happen is to see your numbers start dropping. It might start with a trickle but after a few weeks you would notice a steady stream of followers leaving your website.
Many of the big websites simply fall to the wayside simply because they have become too complacent. With millions of websites and blogs springing into life each day staying on the top is more difficult than getting there. When you’re on top of the game you represent a big target to all those behind you. Treat each day like it’s at the bottom of SERPs and you’ll breathe new life to your efforts.
Never rest on your laurels and keep yourself hungry. Create more links, write more quality content and reach out to your readers. If you’ve been successful at your SEO campaign so far stick to your guns and see where you could do it better.
Keep your readers on their toes. Mixing it up once in awhile makes your content less predictable. Offer unique content, there’s a good chance that because your website has become so popular many other sites are offering the same type of content. Make your content fresh by writing about current and trending topics in your niche.
Keep your Followers Engaged
Letting your readers be an active part of your site by allowing them to post their comments is a simple way of making them feel they are part of your site. Asking questions after each post is a direct way of eliciting reaction from your readers. Make it easier for your readers to contact you by giving your email. If you’ve got an email list update them about your latest posts. This keeps your readers loyal and makes it easier for them to promote your website.
Your SEO campaign has gotten you this far and seems that you have maxed out your traffic by this technique. If you’re planning to boost your traffic then using another engine may be a good idea. Social Media Marketing is technique that increases website traffic by using social networking sites. It’s an easy way of getting people to visit your website by simply placing links on tweets or shouts at facebook.
If SEO is all about numbers then SMM is all about connecting to people. The trick is how to keep people visiting after their first click. Again, here is where writing quality content does the trick. There’s no way people you could get your website viral or people talking about your site without you offering them quality content they could read.
These are just some ideas on how you could increase your traffic after hitting that impasse. The best strategy is to keep everything new and to constantly write quality content. Monitor those numbers and try to figure out where you need improvement. Try to learn new things and keep those numbers going up.
