Your content should be easily shared so that your visitors can assist you in spreading the word. This is accomplished by combining a strong headline with an intriguing image, as well as a strong, captivating lead-in.
This combination allows you to create the ideal small piece of information about your article to share on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and other social media networks.

Suddenly, you have a significant increase in traffic to your site, and best of all, it is free. That is how you get more traffic without spending any money.
Increase your traffic by using good web design.
We get so caught up in obtaining free traffic that we forget about some of the easiest and most cost-free ways to get more people to your website. Your website design is one of those critical elements. A well-designed website will boost your traffic. Let us look at some of the most important aspects of your website.
#1 – Keep your page balanced – A thorough website is well-balanced. The top left of your page is the first thing a visitor sees when they arrive at your page. They will hover there before scrolling up or down. Your page will be more aesthetically appealing and simpler for visitors to discover stuff if the flow is well-balanced.
#2 – Make your website easy to use — If your website is difficult to use, your visitors will go before you can say “gone.” Make sure that you choose a design and layout that is easy to navigate and easy on the eyes.
#3 Keep your page as simple as possible. A clean site is far more visually appealing than a cluttered one. We enjoy utilizing all the fantastic tools that enable us to display very cool graphics on our site, show videos, interact with visitors, and so on. However, we tend to put too many active elements on the page, which makes it difficult for visitors to stay focused. In fact, it can be aggravating. It is not that you should not use these items, but that you should use them wisely.
#4 Design an easy-to-use navigation menu that makes it simple to find all the site’s content. Web visitors frequently look for a toolbar across the side or top, so stick with what they are used to, and do not forget to include a link back to your home page.
A good web design ensures that visitors remain on your site because they ‘like’ it and return frequently. It also means they are far more likely to refer others to your website. Do not overlook something as simple as a good web design to increase your free traffic.
