5 WAYS TO ATTRACT VISITORS TO YOUR SITE
1. Search engine optimization
The most reliable and common form is traffic from search engines. Two search engines are popular on the Russian Internet:
In recent years, Google’s PS has been gaining more and more positions and is catching up with Yandex as a percentage of users. This is due to the widespread adoption of mobile and voice search, where Google has a leading position.
Many people think that search engine optimization is dying and CEO is not working. It is easy to verify that this is not so. Well-optimized sites bring tens of thousands of search traffic, and as long as this is true, SEO is alive. The benefits of search traffic include:
Improving the quality of the site – a poorly optimized and low-quality site will never become the leader of the TOP, therefore SEO optimizers do everything to make the site quality and convenient for visitors.
Correct optimization pulls up other types of traffic, as external factors also affect ranking on the network, therefore, when ordering website promotion, you get additional bonuses in the form of other traffic channels.
Stopping financing does not stop traffic – a properly optimized site will work even if you refuse the services of an optimizer. Of course there will be no growth in traffic, but most likely there will be a decline, but it will not stop.
The disadvantage of this method of obtaining visitors on the Internet is the need to create a good and high-quality website. If the product is of poor quality, then it will be very difficult to promote it in the search for popular queries.
It should also be noted that the result of such optimization should not be expected immediately. Search engines do not work instantly, it takes time.
If no one knows or searches for a product, search engine optimization is not suitable.
2. Contextual advertising
Contextual advertising is a way to attract the attention of visitors from search engines using advertisements that appear in the search results with the “Advertising” icon.
This is a search engine affiliate program that has become increasingly intrusive over the years. Ads are increasingly merging with the issuance, and the “Advertising” icon will probably no longer be visible soon.
Contextual advertising can be launched from the first creation of a site or landing page.
Ability to manage ads – ads can be customized for any request, region, time, etc.
There is no need for a high-quality website – in order to get into the contextual advertising of a search engine and attract customers it is not necessary to have a high-quality website, it will be enough to create a landing page.
Cost – a feature of ranking in contextual advertising is that search engines do not take money for impressions, payment is withdrawn from the client after the visitor clicked on the ad. The cost per click in high-frequency topics can reach thousands of rubles.
No funding, no transitions – as soon as advertising runs out of money, the transitions are automatically suspended.
Distrust of users – not all users of search engines trust advertisements.
