As the web is an ever changing landscape, you have to keep track of your own web results like what is happening with the competition and also the best and highest ranked sites. The following are 25 online safest techniques, suggestions and tips to avoid losing potential visitors:

  2. Update the pages on your website frequently. Use your time collecting valuable information on your site, and then tell everyone you can! Offer a web site full of interesting details that similar sites’ readers can’t live without. The best way to gain readership is by offering a valuable resource! You can even put a date counter on the page to show when it was last updated
  3. Think carefully about key terms that your users will search on, and use those terms to construct your page.
  4. Offer additional value on your website. For affiliates and partners you can place links to their sites and products and ask them to do the same for you. You can also advertise their books or videos, if these products relate to your industry and are not in competition with your own product.
  5. Write relevant articles and publish them for free. Make sure to include a Bio Box that includes a link to your site.

  10. Add a link ‘Recommend this site to a Friend’ so that the visitor can email your website link
  11. Use a distinct list of keywords for each page on your site instead of using one broad set of keywords on every page.
