Driving traffic website s 9 Tips to Get Repeat Traffic To Your Website1. Update the pages on your website frequently. Stagnant sites are often dropped by some search engines or considered spam because of inactivity.

2. Offer additional value on your website. If you’re a hotel or B&B provide information on activities in your local area. If you are an activity then provide additional information on accommodation nearby.

3. Allow customers to ‘opt in’ to get discounts and special offers. Place a link on your site to invite customers to ‘opt in’ to get a monthly newsletter or valuable coupons. If you offer specials then make those specials available to your subscriber list ONLY. This makes the subscriber feel like they are joining an elite group.

4. Add a link to your primary page with a script ‘Book Mark or Add this site to your Favorites’.

5. Add a link ‘Recommend this site to a Friend’ so that the visitor can email your website link, with a prewritten title, “Thought you might be interested in this”, just by clicking on it.

6. Brand your website, (and all other internet and social sites you have) so that visitors always know they are communicating with the same company. Use consistent colors, logos and slogans and always provide a ‘Contact Us’ link on each page.

7. Create an, ‘Our Policies’ page that clearly defines your philosophy and principles in dealing with your customers. Also post your ‘privacy policy’ as well so that clients know they are secure when they visit your site.

8. Create a FAQ page, which addresses most of the doubts and clarifications about your product and services, and your company that are most often asked. This helps to resolve most of the customers’ doubts in their first visit to your site.

8. Ensure that each page on your website has appropriate titles and keywords so that your customer can find their way back to your site if they lose the book mark.

9. Never spam a client, who has opted for newsletters, with unsolicited emails. Later if they decide they want to ‘opt out’ of the mailings, be sure you honor their request and take them off the mailing list. They may still come back if they like your products. But they will certainly not come back if you continue to flood their email box with mails they no longer wish to receive.
