If there is one simple thing you can do to help boost your WordPress site, that is website content writing. There is nothing more powerful than providing solid no cost information to your visitors and readers. Posts that have upwards of 300 words or more are ideal. Large WordPress sites with lots of quality information generates hundreds of high powered quality links and traffic.
Website content drives traffic and loyal readers. It is easier to get lots of powerful backlinks by providing lots of good content. These sites are passed through word of mouth, social networks and other vehicles of communication. And the best part is, this is all done for you by people who actually enjoy reading and visiting your site. This is powerful stuff!
Other WordPress publishers like to link to sites that keep the selling to a minimum. The more content you have the less your site looks like an affiliate site or online marketing site.
A little bit of targeted selling goes a lot farther than affiliate links and banners all over the site. It takes away from the professionalism and scares away your visitors. If you have a site that oversells, try to remove the banners and some of the links and test the results. See if the traffic increases.
Small changes to a site can take months to show its benefits. If you own a site that has less than 25 articles and lots of affiliate links/banners all over the site, try adding a hundred more articles over three or four months. Keep the posts pure content with no selling. After five or six months, you will see a rise in traffic. Other sites will link to you and your reputation will sore with Google.
If you don’t have the time to write all the content, outsource the work. There are plenty of companies that can write it for you or hire a full time writer. A good writer is worth their weight in gold.
The market trend for 2011 and into the future is authority sites. Big sites with lots of information and only targeted product sales or services.
