  3. Regarding the advertisement on your website, say if banner ‘X’ is always earning you twice as much compared to banner ‘Y’? I would suggest that you should start changing ads to see whether you can improve the current situation.
  4. As for social media management, if your Twitter is showing more results compared to Facebook, then by all means spend more time on Twitter. Do not waste your time trying to bring your Facebook profile up to speed with Twitter. You will only end up wasting more time. Besides, you can save more time if you put more of your efforts on one social media account.
  5. If you coincidentally have an unknown website as one of your top referring sources, you should really consider reaching out to them and see if you can partner with them in blog posts, services, etc. As a blogger, it is very important to have networking. Building relationships between bloggers.

You should treasure your “Referral Sources”, without them referring traffic to your site, you’ll lose a portion of your traffic instantly. That is why building relationship with one another is important.

Publish Whatever You Want As Long As It Is On High Traffic Days

Are Mondays, Fridays or even Sundays the best time to publish your articles, promotion, etc. Whenever your site receives most traffic, that’ll be the day you publish your contents. Knowing your high and low traffic days for your site will prevent you from losing precious visits and sales.

You can determine your highest traffic days by reviewing your “Visits” report in your Google Analytics account. Take advantage of these days and use my methods to further the cause.

Publish blog articles, news, events, promotions, social media networking, and more on high traffic generation days.

Thus on low traffic days, spend your time to do some cleaning up, fix site errors, updates, site audit, web customization and others.

Work smart, not hard. You will see results. It’s quite easy really.

Focus and Produce Contents That Your Visitors Like Most

Find out what content from your website is drawing a lot of attention of making your visitors come back. Place your efforts creating more of those content, you’ll be smiling from ear to ear very soon.

Log into your Google Analytics account and head over to the “Top Pages” report section. Then look for the top 5 pages visited over the past 3-5 months. Start creating your contents around these top 5 pages’ topics.

Repeat the idea once you’ve finished your content creation of a content and move on to the next. Here’s a few ideas for you to strategize.

  1. Publish blog articles only with popular topics of your site.
  2. Your social media activities should focus more on promoting and engaging your “hot” topics to your readers more than your normal topics.
  3. If your popular topic can be monetized in any way possible, start promoting products and services that relates to your hot topic to your visitors. But make sure whatever you’re doing has quality, you wouldn’t want to lose your visitors trust right?

Losing their trust also means you’ll soon have bad reputation and everything you’ve built starts to deteriorate.
