Tips to Maintain your Website to Keep Visitors Coming Back
by Charles Nixon III
When you design a website you should create it so that your
visitors are constantly coming back for more. In order for
you to keep your visitors coming back you need to keep up
with maintaining your website, and offering things that
will keep your visitors busy.
Keep your visitors coming back. Well, how do you do this?
You can start by creating a forum. This will allow your
visitors to interact with each other and meet new people.
Next you may want to create a page, or a topic on your
forum based on new content that you add. This will keep
your visitors up to date on what your doing around your
Also you may want to create a news letter. A news letter
could contain many things. You can write tips and tricks
articles, you can use it to tell your visitors what's new
on your website, you can offer special deals, and much
more with a newsletter.
Build a strong network of incoming links. Incoming links
are a very important object in the search engine game. If
you don't constantly increase the number of links coming
into your website you will start to loose your high ranks
on search engines. Or you may not even be able to obtain
high ranks if you are just starting out.
When you start getting incoming links you should create
some way to keep track of these websites. Document them
somehow in a word document, on a webpage, or in a excel
document. Check back on these links regularly to make sure
they still have your link on their webpage especially if
your linking back to their website.
Monitor your website statistics. This should be a thing
you do on a weekly basis. Find a company that will either
give you a report on who's visiting your website, and
where. Or use your exhisting hosting companies service
(if they offer one).
When monitoring your statistics you want to see where your
visitors are going the most. Try and use these statistics
to your advantage. If they are going to your article
directory more than they are your forum you will want to
spend more time increasing your article directory rather
than monitoring your forums.
