What are the ways to increase traffic on your website?
Each and everyone who want to reach in the top search engines do not have same way of doing SEO. This is why you must stop comparing yourself with other peoples methods, because it will slow down your process of ranking high in search engines. Instead, you should try to combine the methods that already worked for someone else with your own.
