How Traffic Impacts SEO
You know (no matter how new you are to website creation) that you want people to visit your site. Preferably lots of people, right? In the world of websites, visitors create traffic to your site, and – in this one instance – traffic is a good thing. When you have a lot of traffic, search engines like Google and Bing sit up and take notice. When your traffic gets boosted, search engines index your site higher on their search result pages, resulting in even more traffic. This is the web traffic cycle: more web traffic, higher SEO – higher SEO, more web traffic. Obviously, someone has to find your website first, and you’re not going to be #1 on Google your first day in cyberspace. Luckily, there are a number of different channels you can use to impact your traffic, as well as your SEO.
