When I started my own website for my home business I was really excited. I managed to create a website and customize it so it looked great. I spent ages thinking about what needed to be on there, and when I published it I was watching the amount of traffic that arrived almost religiously.
No Traffic to Be Seen
After the first few days I began to feel a little bit down. I wasn’t getting any traffic to speak of. I figured it was just because the site was new so I gave myself a couple of months to sit back, relax and try and spread the work of my business locally. After the two months was up the traffic hadn’t really changed and I realised that it wouldn’t change unless I did something. I thought perhaps the site wasn’t attractive enough but after doing some research online I realised I had made a lot of errors, the biggest being not optimising the site for the search engines.
