Attracting more visitors or traffic and ranking high on search engine results, that is the concern and challenge of every internet marketer, business owner and other home based business (offline or online). This is one of the most searched topic for these. Again, Google plays a major role in this, being the dominant search engine out there. The recurrent question: How does Google or any other search engine provider (Bing, Yahoo..etc..) decides how to rank a site? Well, the latest factor that Google and probably Bing and others take into consideration is the time spent by visitors on a site or blog. That is also known as engagement. That’s already one of the metrics used by Google’s YouTube and even Facebook (in terms of shares) to determine what content to promote and rank high in the search results. Then the question becomes: how do you get visitors to spend time on your website, page or post? There are 7 ways to keep web surfers and visitors engaged according to Eric Siu in this article in entrepreneur magazine. Here they are:
1- Be memorable to them, aka purple cow which is a term coined by the Seth Godin. In other words your article or post must capture your readers/visitors attention and leave a mark, as your articles stands out. This is the things viral articles, posts and other videos are made of and that lead to shares on other social media platforms. So know your stuffs, find your voice and style and present your topic in such a way that it breaks from the mass of other similar related writings or creations that adds to the already big info noise on the net.
2- Add a video, which is relatively easy. You can either create one of your own, making sure that it follows the same rules as the one above; or you can embed one from YouTube that is already viral or has the potential to be so, as long as it meets the criteria from step 1.
3- Write long article or post. the author says that 2000 words is a good number. This is obvious as the sheer length will keep visitors on your site or blog. It will still be necessary to make the topic or story worth their while.
4- Create content: You’ll hear it again and again in this digital age…Content is king. It’s all about providing value to your visitors.
5- Make your website or blog visitors visit a pleasant one: This is about your site design and navigation…Make it easy for them to find what they’re looking for. Another aspect of this step is addressed in step 6….
6- Fast loading time. It says it all. People are in a hurry nowadays. Attention span are shorter and so is patience. So help yourself and help your visitors bu setting your site to load fast.
7- Related post or articles. If you have a WordPress site there are plug ins for that. Again, information, content is king. People want to learn, so provide value.
All in all search engine providers are all about providing value to their users and that involves such elements as the quality of the content, the visitor’s experience on the site (load time, mobile friendly etc…). It’s an interesting mix. While I am at it I’ll make sure to follow these rules. Below is a video about the topic of attracting and retaining traffic:
This is video is a great complement to the topic discussed here. Leave your comments below and share what you have learned that helps attract and keep more visitors on a site or blog.
What challenge most websites experience to be successful? Traffic or attracting more visitors. What is the cause? The most common mistake website designer and other publisher, myself included make is to put the ecart before the horse or thinking about monetisation and other aspect of site building such as the look and feel; before content. I learned this the hard way when I build my website (ecommerce to be more precise) to sell auto air conditioning compressor. Had I thought about providing valuable information that addressed the challenges that my target customer were facing with their vehicle’s ac systems I would have had less trouble getting more visits and sales to my site. Instead I went ahead with creating my site, listing all kinds of auto ac parts making sure that I used the right title tag and other website design tag stuff, except providing articles and other tips about ac repair or addressing car ac related issues.
Well it’s all the more difficult for me to talk as I knew better through reading one of the best resources on the topic of getting target traffic to a website through content and even at some point owning the website building tool which I and many other more successful solopreneurs as we like to call one another in that particular community; consider one of the best if not the best website builder in the market. So the lesson, think in terms of your target customer. What is his or her challenge? How does she go about searching for it? Where does he or she hangs out? What kind of words (aka keywords) are they using? etc… These kind of questions will help you build pages that provide valuable and useful information to your visitors and position you as expert, while increasing your credibility. Then, only then your visitors are now being more open to the notion of becoming customers. Sounds simple but in actuality it’s easy to get lost in the techniques of the website or of the product. I hope this helps. Ever made the mistakes mentioned in this (long) post? Any advises?
Hello to all my readers, especially those of the small business community (whether brick and mortar or home based). Since I’ve engaged on this IM (aka Internet Marketing) journey, one of the word that has been recurrent is SEO or Search Engine Optimization. If you don’t know yet, there are various opinions about the topic, some in favor of this online marketing tactic to drive traffic to a website; others against as they see SEO as an evil strategy to manipulate search engine results. There’s a little bit of truth in both sides of the issue. But as a business owner you still have to know what it’s about. As in pretty much everything there’s a good way of doing SEO and bring visitors to a site and there’s a bad way. Hereafter I have added a YouTube video from one of the most respected guru in this art, Alex Becker.
A little warning this otherwise young and smart fella can have a very colorful language, not always but he wold sometimes drop some sh…” bombs here and there. Don’t let that detract you from the training. He offers a lot of value. One thing is sure this fella is a straight shooter. He keeps to his words. Anyways, judge for yourself and get your baptism in the art of SEO, and be equipped because there are many so called SEO specialist out there who’d help separate you from your money very quick by using some sleek lingo and pray on your lack of knowledge. But again there are some really good and great ones out there. I consider Alex among the latter..actually excellent one. By the way, I’m still new in the thing, but I know enough to be dangerous to a scammer.
How much do you know about SEO? What do you want to learn? Is it important for your business? How so? Ever hired an SEO expert?

So coming up with product that addresses the particular questions that a group of like minded persons are searching answers for online (and even offline) becomes easy. Here is a great blog post article on product creation where the author, a freelancer shares how he created his first info product with no experience of writing or internet marketing, thus showing that what matters most is the value of the info to the user.
