7 Highly Effective Ways to Generate Traffic to your Website

A strong internet presence can play a major role in enhancing the sales of your business. Good internet presence helps in earning more revenue and ensuring brand loyalty. It is important that you keep your websites up to date. You should look at the latest trends and make changes accordingly so that it helps in getting more traffic and is more profitable. You do not have to redesign the whole website to make it better. Making little improvements will help in improving the user experience.

Here are some tips that you can use to improve the design of your website without doing a full redesign.

1. Make it Easier to Share Content

Sharing the content helps in increasing the traffic to the site. You can reach a wider audience if you can make it easier for the visitors to share your content on different social profiles. You should add plugins which allow users to share any post with just a few clicks. The sharing process should not be complicated because if it is, then the visitors will not go through the trouble of doing it. Adding social media plugins will help in making sure that your content is shared and it reaches a wider audience.

2. Add Videos for More Attraction

Videos are an excellent addition to any website design. Most visitors love to watch videos. It is also an excellent means of conveying information. It is a much faster and effective way of getting across your message as compared to the text. It is better to add a dynamic video instead of lengthy boring descriptions. People like to stay on sites which offer more videos. It is also one of the features which compel people to come back to your website.

3. Make use of All the White Space

Too much white space on a site can be a little unwelcoming. It is better to use most of the available space. You can use them for more advertising. But it is important to leave just enough of the blank space so that the site does not look overwhelming. There should be a good balance between the content and the empty space. Too much empty space will make the page look boring while too much content can make it look congested – so adopt a balanced design. You should put the most important things on top and surround it with images or text which highlights it.

4. Go for a Responsive Design

Most consumers like to visit sites by using different devices. Make sure that your website is easily accessible on different devices. Many people use smartphones while surfing online. Having a responsive design helps in uplifting sales and increasing the SEO of the site. Use platforms such as Drupal or WordPresUe to make the site more responsive.

5. The Quality of Content Matters

The type of content plays a major role in determining how much traffic your site gets. It is essential that the content is unique and is of good quality. People will only share your content on their social media profiles if the content is of good quality. You should also see the trend and determine the interests of people. Try to focus your content on what people like. You can also see the posts which have been shared most by the people. It will also give an idea about the content that people would like to see.

6. Avoid Posting Too Much

Posting new content regularly seems like a good move because it means that visitors will always have fresh content to check out. But always remember that adding new content is only a good idea if it is of good quality. You should not comprise the quality just so you can provide fresh content constantly.

7. Aim Bigger and Go Global

Offering content just in the English language means that you are limiting your potential visitors. You should look to integrate a system which offers translations. It will allow you to increase the visitor’s base and there are several translation tools that you can use. If you want to go global then you should make sure that you are sensitive to the norms of different cultures.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
