Getting your website higher rankings means
more people will see your site when they do a
relevant search. It takes time and skill to build a
website that people will want to visit. You have
to have great content and well written articles.
Great graphics and pictures that do not take
forever for the average user to load are also a
huge plus. Aside from creating a site that has
exceptional quality, there are other ways to
boost a rank and get more unique visitors. One
of the best ways is to build links to your site.
Link building is equal parts art and science.
There are a few ways to build links, for example
link exchanges can prove a very valuable tool
for your site. One of the quickest ways to get
people to link to your site is to create “101
ways” lists. These are quick to read and can gain
a lot of traction with people who “ digg”. Lists
that offer the top ten or ten best are also hard
for people to resist and are quite popular things
to link to. You can create lists comparing
different products or pit them against each
other. These are popular with techies especially.
Take some time and make sure that the spelling
and grammar are correct and easy to read. This
is very important if you intend to build links
from professionals. You cannot be counted as
an authority if half of your writing is misspelled.
It is also necessary to present your site in a way
that inspires trust. Having an open and easy to
making visitors feel at ease when browsing
through your site and linking to content you
have posted. It may also help to create an
informative “about” page, which describes when
and why your site is there.
Writing an entertaining and informative blog can
be a great way to drive up traffic to your
website. Reviewing local businesses and
services helps develop your authority at a local
level and can ingratiate you with people in
social networks. Creating a social network site
than people can “like” or become fans of can get
even more page views. If you trade links with
other sites, it is important to make sure that the
site you have linked to is relevant to yours
otherwise you can actually drive people away.
