Web traffic is the bloodline for having an established online presence: be it blogs or informative websites or e-commerce websites. The web traffic determines how well your business or revenue grows and hence it is important to invest time, effort and sometimes money to get a large amount of web traffic to your site. It is also a very good practice to check and keep track of web traffic as it is an important quantifiable measure to determine the online growth. This article shares the top 5 methods on how to build web traffic.
1. Quality, Clarity and Originality
The very first thing to understand while building up web traffic is to make sure that whatever you write is an original piece of work which is easy to understand and clearly conveys the message to the user. You can go about doing this by researching well on a topic that you would want to write and convey all the gathered information in a much clearer way. If it is something that you have worked on and no one else has done it before, even that can be shared and be appreciated. Uniqueness and originality are highly rewarded on the Internet most of the times. At the same time without clarity, the reader will get confused and will not come back to your website for more.

2. SEO is Important
Search Engine Optimization (SEO ) is very important irrespective of the niche that you are working upon. Be it photography, cooking or technology, the articles must be optimized for the search engines. The reason for this is that SEO helps your website to be discovered more easily. SEO helps your website to rank more and appear higher on the Results Page and it also helps the person searching for a topic related to you to find you more easily.
SEO, as opposed to popular belief isn’t difficult. Yes, it does takes time to learn, but it does pay off. SEO deals with how you can choose the right kind of Title, Keywords and a few good practices.

4. Forums and Communities Are There to Help You Grow
Forums have been a key feature that has built up traffic for many websites and blogs. Forums help to implement the important work of allowing your audience to share their views, solve their concerns and issues and get a feel of what is going on. Forums provide a collaboration platform that allows transparency and verification mechanisms of information being created and shared.
It is thus very important for you to either provide a forum for your blog where people can discuss things related to your niche. Not only does this bring a new set of audience, it also makes the existing ones return. This leads to a healthy buildup of web traffic. Well, what if you can’t create and provide a Forum for your readers? In that case, forums can still help you grow. All you have to do is join forums and communities. Participate there and leave links to website ( DO NOT SPAM), share your articles and take in their feedback. This helps you bring more traffic.
For example, I am part of various communities on Google Plus. They are like mini-forums and I actively participate in it and share my posts as well. And it’s effect can be seen clearly in the image below that shows the traffic I receive from Google Plus.
5. It Always Comes Down to Consistency
Any professional and successful blogger would advise you to have a discipline of timely blogging. Consistent blogging doesn’t have to be 3 blog posts a day or a new content each day. It is to do with what you are comfortable with. If you feel blogging 3 times a week is what you feel is right, then do that, but it important to maintain the schedule. The reason for its importance is that, when reader knows when the next post will be out, he or she will come back at that time for newer content, else it will lead to readers coming for new posts and finding old ones. This would have a negetive effect and you might lose out on traffic. Hence having a schedule and bloging or writing consistantly steadily build up traffic.
