Web Design and Development
When you planned to create your website, you knew that it could reach millions of potential visitors. But now that your website is live, visitors are few and far in between. So, where are the visitors? And why aren’t they coming?!
To understand what’s going on, we will need to debunk the oldest myth of the web: Built it and they will come. In reality, quite a bit more work is involved. To get people to visit your website, you also need to (1) make sure that your website can be found and (2) give visitors something worthwhile when they arrive.
The first step to building traffic is to ensure that potential visitors can find your website. This means that you need to make sure that your website can be found in search engines and directories. Some basic things which need to be accomplished to be most effective in this regard include:
Once visitors come to your website, you need to provide them with something useful in order to keep them there. The something useful could be quality content, a great product, a useful service, or a free tool. But whatever it is, it must be able to hold a visitor’s attention, cause them to return, and perhaps recommend the website to others.
Back to our original question, How long does it take for a blog to become popular? Answer: There is no specific time required to make a website popular. It all depends on the type of website and the techniques used to market it. Some websites, for example, can achieve great popularity in as little as a week, whereas others may take several months or even years. So the question that you should be asking is: What is the best way to make my website popular?
