If Content is King Then Why Does Your Online Business Website Have No Traffic?

You have no doubt heard over and over again that “Content is King” when it comes to getting your website well ranked and tons of targeted traffic. But although you have religiously added content you still cannot see any signs of improvement when it comes to receiving all this traffic and your legitimate online businesses are suffering.

While it is true that you do need to continually add fresh content to your website this can also create many problems for people who are just starting out with their first website. The main reason that this happens is that no matter how good the content to the online business website may be it has no value if nobody is around to see it.

They say that behind every successful man stands an even more successful woman and this also applies to your website. So standing behind your King (content) must be your Queen (a traffic generation plan).

A huge mistake that is made by most newbie legitimate online business owners and webmasters is that they try to create all of the content on their own. This task can take them months to achieve before they can even begin to consider a plan on how they are going to drive targeted traffic to their websites. This is especially true if their sole method of traffic generation is dependent on SEO alone.

If traffic generation is not your first consideration when starting a new website, then too much time is generally wasted so that in the end the website will be destined to fail. It really is not important how much market research is done when choosing a profitable niche. If you begin by learning to drive traffic to your site you are far more likely to make your venture as a legitimate online business owner a success.

Another point to remember is that different niches require different methods of traffic generation. If you begin by implementing the strategy that you have chose immediately then you will still have some time to test various methods and this can be really beneficial particularly in a highly competitive niche.

By this point you are probably wondering why so much emphasis is placed on the importance of content. It is really pretty simple. Traffic generation will bring visitors to your business website, but you need to give them a reason that will keep them there and this is where content becomes so important.

As the owner of a legitimate online business website, your aim is obviously to make money and to do this you must give your visitors a good reason to use it. You will find that people online generally have a very short attention span and if your content is not sufficiently eye catching they will disappear in a matter of minutes.

If you need to make both traffic generation and website content your two major methods of building a successful business website you may find the task overwhelming, so the question is – what should you do about it?

There is a solution to the problem to balance the work needed to achieve the results. One method is to create a weeks worth of content for example seven articles (one article per day) or one article a week. By creating your content first you can then devote your available time for the rest of the week to concentrating on traffic generation. By doing this you will always have that successful Queen standing behind your King.
