How to get more hits on your website?

By Rob Wiley
Posted Tuesday, June 22, 2004

You need more hits, more traffic? Well don't we all :). IF this is one of your first stops on your quest to find help to generate more traffic to your site then you are in luck. That means you have not spent a ton of hours trying out stupid scams, or paying someone too much money to attempt to generate traffic to your site.

Don't get me wrong, if you do not have the time or energy to generate more traffic to your site on your own, then by all means hire a professional to do it for you. Just make sure you can trust that person to do what they say they will do.

On the other hand if you are like me, you will attempt the task on your own. I've tried a few basic practices that I've picked up along the way and they have actually proved to generate more hits to my site. Maybe some of these practices can help you get more hits too.

When you start to make a web page, complete your meta tags first. In particular your "Tile", "Description", and "Keywords"tags. When choosing a title, make sure it is unique to that page. Try to make at least one of your keywords show up in your title and that keyword should also show up in the body of your page. Try not to go overboard with keyword duplication (repeating the same keyword over and over), this is considered spamming by most search engines.

After you have all meta tags in place you will be conscience of what your page is all about. Making the content of the page more relevant to your meta tags and earning you a higher position with search engines.

When you think that your page is ready to go, make sure to submit it to all of the popular search engines, (That is a lesson in itself). IF you don't submit your newly remodeled page, it won't be seen! when it comes time for the search engine to spider your submitted page, it will pick up the new keywords and content, and place it in it's database accordingly.

The above tip is pretty basic, but if you create your page in this manner with the right keywords, you should be able to increase your click through rate.
