Best way to improve website traffic
Have you ever heard of the ole saying, Content Is King? It's the truth! If you don't already have a WordPress site, get one. Why? Because it works. A WordPress website is the best way for us to post relevant and new content under our domain to improve our domain visibility. Why is relevant and new content important? Because search engines like it when our domains have answers to frequently asked questions. Think about it. If everyone asks Google a question and that question is located on our domain, guess what? Your domain will show up in the search results, probably on the first page and more than likely in the top 10. Which means the likely hood of someone eventually clicking on it is good.
Keywords, Links, Images and Grammar
There are many tools to help us with this process. If you are familiar with SEO and are great at writing articles, you may not need tools. But that's not the case for many of us.

Whether it's an upgrade, makeover or a brand new website, WordPress is the way to go.
