How to increase the site hits
Today I want to share few of my thoughts to increase the site traffic. If you search through web , number of blogs will be available and few are really good. What I want to share is my knowledge and learning. Before you start, you have to follow the checklist.
- If you have already a domain, I assume the website is not black listed. Which implies it loads in time and also not has any virus threat.
- If you are planning a new one, take it from a trusted source and check its credibility. Up time and the reviews.
These are the basic points if you have checked and verified, now you are ready. I hope you have already checked your site status and ranking. You can refer the Status and Site ranking . Now the time has come for your hard work. I am assuming you are working on a blogging site. So first be ready to decide on some good topics. Be sure that you are investing your time where the available blogs are less. It will always be difficult to compete with existing and proven blogs who are already gathered the majority of the crowd. But never be disappointed, if you are confident and have good knowledge you can also compete. You are now ready with your topic. Time has come to decide A good, catchy, meaningful and easily remembered name for your site. The topic, the name all depend also on the target readers. So spend some time on this.
