Lawn Care Website Traffic
Website traffic is key for your lawn care business. Are you blogging for your lawn care business? Blogging is not hard, but it seems most business owners do not understand the importance of blogging for their niche. Often asking, “Why should I” or “What is that”?
Well I suppose we can answer that, it is free and will generate website traffic to your WordPress lawn care website! It really does not matter what your industry so happens to be, there are groups and forums for every niche.
Website Traffic Statistics
The first thing you will want to do is set up a Google Webmaster Tools account which will provide statistics regarding your website. You will also want to add Google Analytics which can be merged with Webmaster Tools.
Google Analytics showcases key website traffic statistics that may not stick out to you right away, such as your websites:
- Bounce Rate – This is when a visitor finds your site, indicates the amount of time readers spend on your pages.
- Traffic Sources – This website statistic will show where your traffic is coming from.
- Devices – Mobile and Personal Computer users are just a couple of examples you will notice that are finding your website.
- Website Speed – Website traffic is one thing that Google and other search engines recognize, but website speed is a whole other element that should not be over looked. Google Developers speed is great for optimizing your website. Here you can test your website speed and receive very important information regarding fixes you can usually make yourself.
Of course your main goal is to write quality content to bring the bounce rate down and keep visitors on your pages. However for example, if you have no readers your bounce rate will be pushing the wrong way(100% is not good).
How To Get Website Traffic
How to get traffic to your website
will be talked about for the rest of eternity. What I find most amusing, is the actual complaining about “No traffic to my website”
. Most think they have nothing to write about.
Take this video for instance, I could write all day about how the dogs want to help this guy(my oldest son)mow the lawn.
It takes time, commitment and more importantly Hard Work to accomplish true traffic.
If you are a owner working in this industry or any other industry, then you know how hard it truly is to get traffic. Keep in mind that if you are making no effort to get your business found, it will not get found.
