Hey guys -

I've started to notice certain pages on my website getting more traffic than others. It's actually really exciting to see the organic traffic starting to roll in a bit more each day it seems.

I was wondering if you have any strategies that you use if a certain web page begins to get more consistent traffic than others?

Do you revisit it and maybe add an affiliate link if there wasn't one before? Do you clean it up? I think I saw this in our training somewhere. Curious to know any strategies you have if you'd be willing to share. Thanks!

Good morning Paul,

Thank you for your question and well done for taking action.

On any website, we are always going to have some pages that rank better than others. I would be inclined to leave them and focus more on writing depending on how far you are in with your website and training.

Having said the above; it's definitely worth taking note of Andre's answer.

Have a great day.

Roy

I agree, Roy! I feel it adds some symmetry, besides perfection is an illusion!

Thanks Roy -

I'm actually taking notes on everyone's responses and, for the most part I'll leave the pages alone, but little tweaks here and there, like improving paragraph spacing/images, and also possibly adding banners where necessary, among a few other things. Yes, I definitely will continue writing consistently. I appreciate your help!

Thank you, Jeff, I appreciate your input.

Whatever we do whether it's a webpage or something else, some things are going to turn out better than others. Sadly and I know that we are not necessarily talking about perfection here but, perfection kills people's dreams, it stops you from doing what you want to do!

Have a great day.

That sounds like a great plan, Paul. One of the many great things about the Wealthy Affiliate platform is that we can learn so much through someone asking a question!

Have a great day.

You can also use Microsoft Clarity which you can connect with via Bing Webmaster Tools
here you can see where your readers are leaving or how far they go with your posts.
This can give you a heads up where you can either improve or even add a link to that area if most are leaving at a certain spot.

Here is some training by Phil (feigner) that can help Hope this helps and wish you well.

I would just say to leave your old stuff alone. If it is getting Traffic? Then I would highly suggest you leave your old stuff alone. Why mess with a good and great thing. I can suggest working on new stuff; and see if your traffic even goes up. But, like I am highly suggesting; just leave your old stuff alone if it is getting Traffic.

Hope this helps and encourages? And Other Members please do chime in too?

Thanks for your take on it. I do write new articles regularly actually - I won’t do anything drastic to those articles. Just little touch ups - I appreciate the help

That's great. But, I do highly suggest this. If the titles for your posts are attracting visitors. Don't change the titles for sure; if you are attracting visitors with those titles.

Oh for sure! I won’t touch the titles cause that’s where the traffic is coming from - great tip thanks!

You can definitely capitalize on those keywords. See what query words GSC is showing. You can create new pages and link them together. Also the page can be updated if there is more relevant content.

It all depends upon the purpose of the page that is getting traffic. For Informational pages we add links to other related pages on our site, make sure the page has a TOC, at the bottom we add a section ;for other related -posts and maybe one affiliate link. .

What is a TOC George?

Thanks - I was thinking of updating with more relevant content too - I've noticed when I do Google searches that many articles that seem current were actually written long ago, but updated recently. I'll definitely add some more links to more related pages for the informational ones. I appreciate the tips!

Awesome work!

Yea, you can go back to those pages and optimize them for a better User Experience (shorter paragraphs/sentences, high-quality images, maybe a video if needed).

Also, you can add some internal links if it is possible, optimize your keywords, add a call to action buttons or banners, etc.

As AbieAJ said, test one element at a time.

I hope this helps a bit!

Thanks! Actually what you just said about shortening sentences and breaking up paragraphs, I can do quick edits right away to make the pages look nicer on the eye. Thank you for the feedback!

You can even add a sentence or two if you feel that the information will help your users. Adding relevant content to your existing posts could increase your rankings as well.
