Submit your site to Google / Bing

2. Quality content

Offer people something original and different that cannot be found somewhere else or at least not as good as your quality level. You need to make sure that your tags placed correctly and your links are not broken. Provide image content for better communication, and don’t copy images from other sites especially from Google images. Search engine loves quality and unique contents, so try to update your site regularly with meaningful stuffs.

10 basic Ways to Increase Website Traffic

1. Be patient

Usually, the search engine takes a lot of time to index a brand new website. It’s worth to wait and in the meantime, continue adding quality content regularly and keep it up to date. You must be thinking how much time does it take to get indexed on Google/Bing/Yahoo properly. Well, no one can answer this question (not even experts) as most of the search engines keeps their algorithms secret and update it regularly. So it may take one day, one week, one month or even half year. Moreover, we recommend you to wait for 3 months and keep adding quality contents. Don’t forget to promote as much as possible by sharing on social sites.

Hope this helps 🙂
