I have seen this topic on a couple of forums lately. More Content = More Traffic? Which means more sale. Really interesting topic. For me, my answer is that “it depends.” It depends on your niche.
But let’s get down to the meat of the matter.
A lot of new web masters think that if they create a website and just throw some contents on it then they will have thousand of visitors. But I would like to know: who did they really write these contents for? For themselves or the readers?
One great page with good content is worth more than a thousand pages of junk. You can build up a website with all kinds of topics and it will all mean nothing if there is no terrific content there.
Content is what bring you traffic. As you write more topics and expand your website, you will get more traffic.
When you create your content, make sure you write for your readers and not the search engines. Many times people would “optimize” their content to get a better rank in search engines.
Search engines will only index your site. Readers are the traffic that comes to your site.
Creating content is part of the process but making sales through your content can be a great task.
I use to believe creating a site only with affiliate links will make you rich. I was wrong! Then, i learned that creating a content rich site with banner ads hanging on the side will bring in sales. Wrong again!
People will not click on your advertisements, product banners, or other affiliate sales stuff unless you give them a reason to. No need to put up pages with lots of affiliate links in the hope of making revenue -unless you give them good content that helps them make a decision to buy.
So without great content there is no traffic and therefore you will never make any sales.
More Unique Content = More Traffic = More Sales
Writing unique contents makes your site unique from other sites. This will also get you lots of Unique Traffic. Please keep in mind that whenever you write, write with your readers in mind.
I hope you are writing great contents for your blog or site. And remember to promote it.
