The number one question among webmasters is "How can I increase number of visitors to my website?". There are several ways, but adding content to your site is most effect method there is. This article explains why and how to do it.
Like all webmasters, reason you created your website in first place is so that people (visitors) can see what you have to offer. Maybe you simply wish to share your thoughts and opinions on a weblog. Perhaps you want to use your website as a "billboard" for your brick-and-mortar business. Or maybe you want to sell tons of widgets and make a living on Internet.
Whatever your motivation for building your site, you won't achieve your goals without building a steady flow of traffic to it! There is one "best" thing you can do that will help you increase flow of visitors to your site (and keep them coming back time and again): Add new content on a regular basis.
How does adding new content help build traffic? Here are three ways:
1 - More content helps boost your search engine rankings, and higher search engine rankings mean more visitors will "find" your website when they search for what you're offering. In general, larger sites fare better in search engines than smaller sites, for various reasons.
2 - More content (meaning more pages) provides more "roads" into your site from search engines. Having hundreds or thousands of pages means there are hundreds or thousands of varied search terms that your site will come up for in search results. This means instead of your site being "found" when just two or three relevant searches are made, it will be found under hundreds or thousands of search terms!
3 - Fresh content will keep your current visitors coming back to your site to see "what's new". Any business owner will tell you it's cheaper to keep a customer you already have than it is to acquire a new one. The same principle applies on web.
