  1. Great post Gary. It really depends on what type of website you have. For instance if you have a huge community you get a very high returning visitor rate. Google Analytics show me a returning visitor percentage of 20%, that is good to me.

    1. That is an exellent returning rates Nicola you could not ask for any better and as you have mentioned it really depends on the size of your community the bigger the community the greater the returning rates will be. Thanks for adding your voice.

  2. Gary,

    Nice post! You are absolutely correct. Having returning visitors is essential. It is desirable to keep getting new visitors to expand your reach, but this should not be done at the expense of visitors that you “have”. You need to get visits back, by providing a great reason for them to return again and again.

    1. Thanks Steve you have mentioned a very valuable point here we need new visitors however as you rightly said we should not get new visitors at the expense of regular visitors. Thanks for your continued support have a happy holiday.

  3. Very proper and interpersonal language are used in this blog,extra features are added for the viewers that helpful for the daily rutting life. Finally more advantageous blog for us. Best of luck for the future..

    1. Thanks Singapore Web Designer best of luck for the future to you too i try my best to keep the blog up to date and also share my thoughts with you and all my readers best wishes for the holiday seasons to you.

  4. Hi, Gary. Sustaining the interest of our regular visitors, so they keep coming back and making sure that we get new ones should always go hand in hand. The good thing about ensuring that we get repeat visits is that these people could increase word of mouth marketing. The good thing about new visits is potential new sales conversions.

    – Wes –

    1. That is perfect Wes it sum it up quite clearly both should go hand in hand and we should never compromise one for the other and the best thing about word of mouth marketing is that it is absolutely free. Enjoy your holiday

  5. There is absolutely no doubt with the fact that repeated visits do hold much importance to any blogger or webmaster. As a blogger, nothing can be more satisfying than having a bunch of loyal visitors. When you have a loyal visitor, it really makes you feel that your work is being appreciated and thus you are motivated to do better and much better. In order to have such loyal visitors, you really need to make your blog worth visiting by making sure that you have a top quality content which is easy to read and understand. If you are a niche blogger then you should keep writing on the same niche without being offtopic or lost with too much of an extraordinary stuff. Also you must give due importance to the site design which if not aesthetic then its bound to prevent repeated visits. Apart from loyal visitors, we also need unique visitors for which proper emphasis must be given to the SEO and related activities.

    1. Having loyal visitors is what every blogger dreams of however we must be able to retain them by providing what they are looking for and as you have said great content whether it be article or products. Thanks for your support and have a happy holidays

  6. Great tips!. You are totally right. Having returning visitors is necessary. It is attractive to stay receiving new visitors to develop your reach..

    1. That is right we need new visitors to expand on our reach but we need not compromise of loyal readers for new ones. We need to get the balance right by maintaining what we got and at the same time attracting new ones

  7. A very interesting blog content I think is a key to a repeating visits. It is important that we pay attention on what we post.

    1. Thanks for your valuable input i am happy to know that you found the content useful and i hope that i will have your continued support. Hope you have a wonderful holiday

  8. Excellent tips there Gary. It’s also best to focus on making “sticky contents” (long, comprehensive and educational posts), to keep your visitors on coming back and to make them bookmark your posts. Regular posting seems to be the best answer here, but to me, it really is pressuring LOL. That’s why I focus on making longer posts these past few weeks.

    By the way Gary, you are doing well with promoting your blog, I see that you are really active with social media these days. Keep it up 😀

    1. Thanks jason my plan is to take the blog forward next year so i am doing my best to promote it from now. Thanks for your kind words and continued support hope you are enjoying your holidays best of luck.

  9. Having visitors coming back is really important. On one hand, it depends how your website is designed, on the other hand, it depends on customers’ needs. The former factor is determined by designers. From the working experience in BPOVIA I think understanding of corporate culture is what matters.

    1. Thanks for your valuable input there are lots of factors that can affect this your design is one and most importantly your content which is the main creiteria why we attract lots of visitors. Getting new visitors is great but keeping them is key.

  10. Excellent post 🙂 i wish that your blog achieves new heights coming year.
    Loyal visitors are very important for any blogger and here fresh and unique content plays a major role.

    Retaining loyal visitors and attracting new visitors takes a blog to higher level.

    1. Thanks Shabnam i do hope the same for you and your blog in the new year having repeated visitors is the main aim of us all as bloggers but we should not ignore the fact that we need new ones, it is about getting the balance right.

  11. Good post Gary!
    I’ve heard more and more people advising me to write an e-book and give out for free.
    I’m currently compiling most of the lessons in my website into one big eBook and will be releasing it for free soon, I really hope it helps with marketing my website.

    1. That is a good idea writing an ebook i am planning one soon and promoting your website through ebooks is a good marketing plan good luck and best of wishes for the season

  14. Content is what always draws me back to a website. There are some bloggers who concentrate on quantity while some on the quality of their content. Regardless of quality or quantity, as long as their post strikes interest, I will definitely be coming back to their site, and I am sure others too.

This is only traffic that makes you enable to make some stats and then impressions to count for adsense and other affiliates.

    I would suggest some things here, first of all, when you are going to chose a category then be-careful that it has least completion online and when it is sorted out, then target keywords in a very ascending order rather targeting very highly paid keywords but relevancy is a thing that Gray has already told us to care about and I believe in Him for very point of him.

    1. Thanks glad you like the post and found it helpful thanks for stopping and taking the time out to add your voice to the debate here.

  46. After research a couple of of the blog posts on your web site now, and I truly like your approach of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site listing and can be checking again soon. Pls check out my web page as well and let me know what you think.affiliatespam

  47. Though I’m going to get into the rest of this article in a moment, I have to say there is one statement that you made that really stood out to me in a major way. It was my message of the day, I feel, about how writing an ebook is not as difficult as starting to write one. This is what I think I’ve struggled with for so many years.

    Though it was just a side note, or side idea in your article, probably just one of several thoughts, it puts a long time struggle into perspective for me. It’s not just about ebooks etc. It’s articles and everything for me. When I sit down to work, there is just this battle of dreading to do it, and then when I finally get cracking, it’s pretty much fine unless I take a long break. I could never figure out why I felt like this. But I could never get over that initial hump unless I was motivated by the need for money or some other deadline.

    That little statement explains that weird block so well. I don’t know if it’s laziness, or if it’s just because most writers are creative and wind up writing nonfiction and so you just don’t look forward to it. However, though I still don’t know exactly what it stems from, now that you put it so simply like that, I think I can get over it quicker, maybe without hesitation at all, which would be my dream.

    In terms of the rest of the article, I truly think that a blog is what people want to see. Even if you don’t write in it every day, that blog is like a connection to your product or brand. I am actually considering making my whole new mini-project a blog and even selling the product off of the blog, just to see how that would work.

  48. As they say “content is king” this article really reflects good quality content and updated with fresh new articles on a regular basis will attract readers and convert them into returning visitors. I can testify to that a good blog will entertain an inform. Good article.

  49. Completely agree with you visitors are just like lifeline of blog if we update our blog regularly solves some of the queries of customers will be highly beneficial

  50. Well… round about every blog posts online don’t have much originality as I found on yours.. Just keep updating much useful information so that reader like me would come back over and over again..

  51. wow these methods will really help in Keeping our visitors visiting our blog regularly and Arranging giveaways is the best way or organising Contests….

  55. Returning visitors to your website or blog shows your quality work. So to be successful its good to provide the best service to your clients.

  56. The best way to build a successful business is to get your website visitors attention when they first visit your site. If you make your site fun and entertaining to visit, you will be more likely to keep visitors coming back and get more customers.

  57. Very interesting article, i think returning visitors are very important but one of the most difficult things to obtain; it doesn’t depends on SEO or specific rules, but mostly on te quality of contents

  58. Excellent article on one of the most important seo technique. Returning visitors helps in getting credibility of your blog or website. Great article written on it. Will get back soon on this website for more good articles.

  59. One of the best way to keep loyal readers that always come back is to keep a good online reputation. Your readers should perceive you to be trusted and relied on for facts, and quality content.

  60. The most important one I reckon is the email list, other than that it is building traffic, the list will create the relationship and keep them coming back and in time keep them active on the site as well..

  61. Exelent post 🙂 I guess the best way to keep your visitors coming back is to atrack them with the quality content and the offers you’re providing such as free ebooks or other services.

  62. I am a real estate agent in Columbus Ohio who just created my first website. For my business it’s most important to have someone visit my site for the first time so I can hope to have the chance to add them as a client. What are the best things I can do to try to get the folks who first visit my site to give me a call?

  63. I think what you typed made a lot of sense. But, think about this, what if you
    added a little content? I ain’t saying your information is
    not good., however what if you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean Keep Your Visitors Coming Back | is kinda plain.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people excited
    about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    could bring your posts a little livelier.
