When it comes to generating traffic to your website, the best type of traffic you can generate is repeated traffic – Meaning the same visitors who visited your website before visits it again and again (because of the fact that the information you’ve provided is informative and they’re back for more)
Anyone who has a website and is reading this post knows that it is easy to get people to visit your website for the first time, but it can be quite difficult to get them to visit it again. What I’m going to do in the next few sections is to share with you 4 proven strategies that will help you attract repeat visitors to your website.
1. Update Your Website Regularly
This is the number #1 thing you need to do if you want to attract visitors to visit your website on a regular basis – You simply need to update your website regularly with unique content.
As a guideline, you need to update your website with new content approximately 2 to 3 times in a single week.
Another thing to note is this – While the need for unique content is important, the need for having current, up-to-date content is even more important. You do not wish to update your visitors with information that is already outdated.
2. Allow Easy Bookmarking
One simple trick you can do is to add links within your website that will allow them to bookmark your website within one single mouse click.
You can add a link called “Bookmark This Site” in the top-fold, making it visible to them – By doing so, it will increase the likelihood for them to click on your link to bookmark your website.
Otherwise, you may want to have options at the bottom of every post that will allow your visitors to add your website to the various social bookmarking sites.
3. Add Opt-In Pages
You may also want to consider adding an “opt-in” section within your website where your visitors can enter their first name and email address, so that you can send them email notifications whenever you have updated your site with fresh contents.
In order to get more people to opt-in, you may want to offer a free gift in exchange for their personal information, instead of just asking them to enter their personal information. It is proven that people are more inclined to want to opt-in when you offer them something in return for their efforts.
The free gift that you can offer can be a short report pertaining to the niche topic of your blog, or a short audio/video which you can record that discusses more about the niche topic of your blog.
4. Encourage Communication
If possible, at the end of every article that you post onto your website, you have something that fosters communication (between fellow website visitors, or between yourself and your website visitors).
You can either ask them for their comments/suggestions or ask a simple question (make sure you participate in the discussion as well, and do not leave all the discussions to your websites’ visitors).
If your visitors engage in a discussion within your website, you can be sure that they will return again to check out for any replies that was posted in response to theirs.
Follow the above 4 tips that I’ve just shared on how to attract repeat visitors to your website, and I can be sure that you will see a surge in your website traffic very soon…
