Welcome to part 4 of my series entitled 110 Ways To Increase Website Traffic, Visitors, Clicks. Read Part 1 here, Part 2 here and Part 3 here. In this post I will share 35 additional ways to increase your website traffic. Stay with me until the end, because I have a cool bonus for you.
76. Make your best post sticky
If there is a post which became much more popular than your other articles, it might be a good idea to make it sticky (stick to the top of your blog post roll). By doing so, your post will be the first thing seen by a new visitor. Since the post has already become so popular, the chances are that this actually is your best post, and its new visitors will judge your site by it. Just by making that post sticky, you can interest visitors into reading your other stuff on the blog or share it.
