Internet is now part of our daily routine, and nowadays it’s impossible to think of a day without it. People have more unrestricted access to information than in any other time in history, and this is great. There is a downside however: virtually anyone in the world can spread their information, and can create a blog. If you search for any term on Google, which is the most popular search engine, you will find that there are million of results associated to that terms. This means that the competition is high, and chances that your site get noticed are very limited.
So if the content you are writing in your website isn’t interesting enough to engage people and make them return for new content, you are going to have a difficult time.
What are the factors that help to get more traffic to your website? Let’s have a look together.
Be interesting, find what’s hot
The first step, is to gain the confidence of your audience.
When you write the content for your site, make sure that it is interesting and engaging for your readers. Would you be interested in your article if you were an outside visitor looking for information within your niche? Your article must offer value to them.
Try to identify the areas where you are failing to provide them high standards. Focus on what you can improve in order to make your site more engaging and attractive.
Are you short of ideas? You can find new interesting topics by looking what’s hot around. I suggest you to have a look at TrendHunter, you will surely find some writing ideas.
Engage your readers in a discussion
If you want to attract more people, you have to find a subject that you can discuss with your readers. Write your opinion, encourage to continue the discussion in the comments: visitors will love it. They will share their own opinions, and the beautiful part is that the more comments you have, the more people will be encouraged to write. This is a great way to keep the content in your page always fresh.
As you can imagine, opinions you will read in the comments won’t always be in line with your views. If you want to keep your followers happy, stay away from extreme views or radical arguments. It’s always a good idea to give others a good picture of yourself: people love to follow a balanced and open-minded person.
In any case, keep always in mind that visitors want to feel as if they are engaging in a conversation, and not in a diatribe.
Post nude photos of yourself
Okay, I’m not serious on this, I am kidding 🙂 I just wanted to trigger your sexual curiosity for a reason: everything that turns curiosity up, is useful to keep your audience engaged.
And sex keeps your audience curious, it’s incredibly effective. Some famous influencer bloggers, singers, actors or other VIPs, know well this principle and play on their sex appeal. If you want to get an idea, just have a quick tour on some Instagram or Twitter pages, you will see what I mean.
That’s the human nature, and we can’t do much to change it. But you can actually use this sort of weakness in order to attract more visitors to your pages: look for ways that stimulate the sex appeal. Sexy images (not necessarily of yourself) are also always a huge draw, especially when they are used tastefully and without vulgarity.
If your niche allows it, then consider to spice things up a bit.
Study your Competitors
When you have an online business, it’s very easy to see what the most successful competitors are doing, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Conduct a little research to determine who are the big men in your niche, and figure out if you can replicate some of their ideas.
I would even suggest to buy some of their products, to understand how their sales system works. Try to study the reasons of their success, and adapt your business to follow their model. It’s clear that you don’t want to plagiarize or do anything unethical. You have to think in the long term, and if you want to stay in the game for long time, being ethical is the first requirement.
The objective of your studies should be to give your visitors content and products that you would find interesting.
Focus on SEO and Social Medias
