3. Text Only versions of your site. If your page is available to other countries, as our is, it is a good idea to have a text only version of your site. Why? Because most of people who are not located in United States do not have Internet connection speeds that we here in US take for granted. Most of these people also have older computers with slower processors and low graphics capability. It has to be annoying for people in foreign countries to go to a site that has a product that they need, only to find out that they can't read fancy Flash programming. I do not currently have this text only version, but I am working on it as we speak. So, to all of you in foreign countries, I have listened to your requests, and I am taking action!
4. New Killer Content. Sure, you can have two thousand pages on your site. But, if someone has read them all, why would they come back? You have to continuously update your page and add new killer content. I suggest a weekly column or monthly bulletin. You just need something to keep visitors interested in book marking your site for future viewing.
If you really want to gain visitors, then you will. When I started our site, we had 25 visitors a day. Now, we have had 100,000 NEW visitors in past three months. We now have a 50% return visitor rate. In our industry, that is good. For our business, it is working phenomenally! The last bit of advice I can offer is to continually read Web Pro News daily! It offers intelligent and cutting edge information, which will help your web site grow exponentially.
