are some tips that will help you experience some success with your Web site:
traffic (attracting visitors to your site):
are many ways to build traffic. The best-known method is search engine submission.
Google is currently the most-respected
engine, and it takes time to get listed there. My most recent site--a site with
great content--was finally listed in Google after an 8-month wait. Other search
engines currently seem to list sites faster. They include Yahoo,
Altavista and MSN.
Google's Adsense is a great
way to place advertisements on your site. The ads compliment the content that
you create for your site and they even have a filter setting that lets you block
ads that might be offensive, or that compete against the content that you offer.
on creating a couple of short, descriptive paragraphs for your home page. Rather
than creating little captions for your images, plan on using the text to fully
describe your images and the content of your site. For example, if your home page
features photos of labrador puppies, your text might be something like this:
to the Labrador Puppy Site. We're excited to share photos of our three beautiful
Labradors. We'll also tell you what we've learned about house training, how the
dogs react to children and how we're preparing the dogs for hunting. As a bonus,
we'll share how much the dogs eat (and what dog foods they enjoy).
paragraph may attract people who are not only interested in Labradors, but also
folks who are trying to house train Labradors and still other visitors
who are teaching Labradors how to hunt.
feel you have expertise in the subject area that is highlighted on your site,
you may want to write a brief 1-page article that contains helpful information
about your topic. There are networks that accept article submissions and those
networks may distribute your article to owners of other Web sites. Here's how
you benefit: you allow free distribution of the information, as long as a link
to your site appears at the bottom of the information.
the title tag: The title tag of your HTML document should include words that accurately
describe the content of your page. The most important words should appear first.
As a rule, the best descriptive keywords should occupy the first 60-70 character
spaces. You may have landed on this page because your saw my title tag information
in a search engine: "Web Site Traffic Tips: Attracting visitors to your site."
some searches for directories that feature the region in which you live. Operators
of such directories are often happy to add a link to your site, as long as you
link back to them.
