How To Get More Visitors To Your Website – Part 1

How to get more visitors to your website.  

There are a number of ways to get more visitors to your website, both free and paid. In reality, free isn’t really free in so much as you have to spend your time taking certain actions that will get visitors to your website.

In this and the next article I am going to focus on link building as this is one of the main things the search engines take into account when ranking your site. Links allow search engines to find your site and the quantity and quality of those links help them rank your pages.

Link building should be a part of your overall marketing plan for your website. Taking action now building links can become extremely valuable over the long term. As your site ages, search engines give you more value – and your ranking increases. In addition, links breed links. 10 links today can turn into 35 tomorrow, 67 the next week and 124 the next month because when people see your links and they like what you have to offer, they’ll link to you too.

When the search engines are looking at the links pointing to your site there are 3 main things they consider :

1. Quantity – Generally speaking, the more links you have, the more authority search engines will see your site as having, given you more weight in the search engines.

2. Quality: Quality is crucial. Search engines are now very clever and they know when people are trying to manipulate the system. To be an authority site, the more links you have from other authority sites, the better.

3. Anchor Text Matters: Search engines look at the text that appears in the links that come to your website and use that anchor text to decide what your site is aboutand what keywords to rank it for. However if every link pointing to your site says the same thing, this will not look natural and natural link building using a variety of anchor texts is what you should be aiming for.
