So in this post, I am going to share some basic tips that you will you to Increase the website traffic without knowing too much about SEO(search engine optimization).
How to Increase the Website Traffic:
Search engines are a big source for the internet users to get information and get websites which can help you in what you are searching. It is impossible for a person to remember all the website addresses on all the topics of his taste. In such a situation, a search engine is the only option by which the user can access the different type of information, very easily. So the search engine plays a vital role in generating the traffic to your website or blog. Google, Yahoo, Bing are the most popular search engines. You must have to make your blog or website search engine friendly so that you can get more and more traffic on your website. Keep in below tips in mind and they will help you in getting some more traffic to your website
1) The importance of Meta Tags In Search Engines:
As I said above that it is very difficult for internet users to remember long web addresses. That’s why they take the help of search engines by searching their required topic. When the user types his required information in the search bar of any search engine and presses Enter, the search engine looks for the titles and Meta tags of websites that are in its database. They are actually the snippet of your text that describes the entire content. So keep in mind that meta tags can be one of the things that can help you in increasing your website traffic.
2) Name Your Website Pages According to The Contents:
Naming a website page in the right way can also be a great factor to increase your website traffic. You need to name the each page of your website/blog according to its content. For example, if your website is about Smartphones and you have created five pages, never name these pages like page1, page2 etc. Page names create a great hindrance for search engines in identifying the information available on your web pages. You can name your web pages like mobile tips, mobile wallpapers, mobile downloads and so on. Using the page names which are not related to your content can reduce your traffic.
3) Less Use of Frames:
Simple and clean content is very important for getting more traffic and making the site search engine friendly. Avoid using too many frames to make your website search engine friendly because search engines can’t read the contents of frames. Hence the pages containing frames are neglected by the search engine that might reduce traffic to your website. Kidpaw.com is a perfect example for that. It is a names finder site with a clean and simple design which is helping them in getting more traffic.
4) Less Use of Java, Flash in Webpage Development:
Where the Meta tags and web page names are crucial to making your website search engine friendly, the usage of Java, Flash and another modern language may beautify your web page. But it is difficult for search engines to read these pages which can ultimately reduce the traffic on your site. So don’t Avoid using of unwanted things and it will help you to increase the website traffic.
