3 Easy ways to increase your website traffic in 2022
1. Optimise for your readers, not search engines
First and foremost, write your buyer personas so you know to whom you’re addressing your content. By creating quality educational content that resonates with your ideal buyers, you’ll naturally improve your SEO.
This means tapping into the main issues of your personas and the keywords they use in search queries. Optimizing for search engines alone is useless; all you’ll have is keyword-riddled nonsense.
Please your buyer personas, and you'll automatically please the search engines.
2. Blog regularly
Blogging is perhaps the most effective way to increase your organic site traffic. It lets you go into more depth than your website allows and creates a large catalogue of helpful, persona-optimized content centred on your market niche. However, poorly-written, spammy, or cheap content can do more harm than good. Avoid it.
3. Get your meta down
The meta title, URL and description are the three key ingredients for an optimised web page or blog post. It’s simple but effective. In fact, all on-page SEO factors are important to get right, but meta descriptions and metadata means you can tell Google exactly what you're talking about.
We use a plethora of tools, including the Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress, HubSpot's SEO tools and Ahrefs to help us optimise our pages. But it’s not enough to just 'install a plugin', you have to work on each page in turn.
