Loic: Updating the content on your site consistently through blogs, articles or events is crucial to getting more web traffic.The most effective strategy is to run a blog, if you’re allowed by your compliance department, frequently updating your web content improves the likelihood your site will be found by members of your target market.Make your content relevant. If you are putting out articles, blogs, or any other form of content, you need to make sure that it is relevant and in demand. This is something that will have other websites passing along your content so that you are getting more and more links and recognition as a result. The bottom line is that it doesn’t work to put out fluffy content that people won’t want to read.
Loic: Analytics should be used to track performance of your site.The data generated will help you learn how to optimize your search engine ranking, how to build longer interactions with users by developing more relevant content and what areas of your website need improvement.There are 2 separate ways to measure your web marketing efforts.
