If you want to have a successful website, you must also have a number of hits or also known as readers. But the Internet contains many millions of web pages, so how in the world are you going to get readers to your web site?
Well online, your website must behave like an attention sick person. That is, constantly asking for attention, but at the same time not be bothering, because then no one visits it.
So how to ask for attention, while not bothering?
It’s about targeting your readers, but also making yourself available where readers are already. For example, if it’s a game your website is about, then you must try to market the website, where the players are.
This can be forums, other websites and much more. But your problem is that not everyone wants you to take their readers away from them, by advertising for yourself.
So in forums, this can lead to exclusion and on other websites, you have to buy yourself space for a limited period of time.
Which can be quite expensive, depending on how many readers the relevant website has otherwise and the time you want on the website.
Search engine is your friend and your enemy
Search engines like google, bing, yahoo, and much more. maps the web and helps readers find what they are looking for.
This is perhaps the best way to get new readers to your website.
But with many websites out there, it’s most often about having unique keywords and posts in order to end up at the top of your browsers. So in a way, the biggest ones will always dominate certain keywords.
But that’s not all, your website must also have some links to other websites to appear more credible. Temporary ads do not count here, so you do not get that value for money.
So what do you do, when you can not put your links on other websites without being thrown out or paying for it, for a limited period of time?
Well, the answer is simple. Use the directories that are out there. Whether you end up at the top of search results or not, the directories will be able to end up at the top of the results and link to your website.
But remember, if you are going to have readers continuously, then you must also have new content all the time. Otherwise you will lose readers. No one loves reruns.
