Boost Internet Traffic to Your Website

boost internet trafficIf you run a business with any sort of online component, you might know that a significant portion of your income can be contributed to your website. There are many ways to boost internet traffic with proper SEO (Search Engine Optimization) techniques. Naturally, an increase in traffic should increase your income. Here are a few things that you should be aware of in order to get started.

The first thing that I always like to point out is accessibility. Nowadays, that word can mean multiple things when it comes to your site’s SEO. A significant piece of this puzzle is mobile functionality. If someone accesses your site on their mobile device, how easily will they navigate or interact with it? More and more, people use their phones to peruse the web. Thus, accommodating mobile devices should be a priority if you haven’t done so already.

Next, you should think of the different platforms where your business can be found. Are you on social media? Setting up pages for LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and even more niche platforms can help you reach an interested audience. Building a network of sorts among these websites can help you do some outreach to that audience for business opportunities that you might not have had otherwise.

When it’s time to dig into actual SEO practices, there are multiple avenues to do so. There are many resources out there, from the likes of SearchEngineLand or Moz, for example. Of course, you might not be comfortable doing your own research and work. If that’s the case, you can also find great results from a SEO agency. There are many avenues to boost internet traffic, and, depending on the scope of changes you want to make and the size of your business, it may be daunting to tackle it independently. So, an agency might be the answer for diagnosing and solving your problems. Content strategy services, like those from an agency called Always Found, are a potential solution.

If you’re not familiar with SEO in general, you might want to also touch up your knowledge with this video, or any number of locations online.

The Academy of Country Music Awards: From Katy Perry and Dolly Parton’s duet, to Nick Jonas joining Kelsea Ballerini on stage to sing her hit song “Peter Pan,” to the tribute to Joey Feek, this year’s ACMs was a night to remember. Breakout artist Chris Stapleton took home 4 awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for “Traveller.”

The Billboard Music Awards: With a lineup including Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, P!nk, and more, we knew the BBMAs would be a hit. The Weeknd won the most trophies of the night, in 8 categories including Top R&B artist and Top R&B album. The night was full of crazy and wonderful moments, including the debut of Adele’s new music video and a beautiful, tear-jerking tribute to Prince performed by Madonna and Stevie Wonder.

The Tony Awards: Hamilton was the talk of the town this year, taking over the Tonys with a record-breaking 16 nominations. It won 11 categories including best musical and best score. Host James Corden was charming and hilarious, performing his own mashup of a number of famous Broadway songs as part of his opening skit. There were lively, dance-filled performances from the cast of School of Rock, She Loves Me, Fiddler on the Roof, and others.

The celebrations are not over yet. We still have the MTV Video Music Awards to look forward to on August 28th, and the Emmys later on in September.
