Most websites fall into two basic categories: informative and sales. Regardless of which category your site falls into, the more traffic you can get to your site, the better off you are. One of the best ways to get more traffic to your site is to make it more interesting for users.
Because of the great interest most people have in expressing their opinions about information and products, as well as being able to find other peoples’ opinions, or even just asking simple questions, setting up the ability for users to do so is a great way of attracting more traffic to your site. This can easily be done by setting up forums or a blog. Both forums and blogs give users of your site the opportunity to ask questions, post their opinions, and see what other users have to say about the products and information on your site.
Forum software, such as phpBB, and blogging software, such as WordPress and b2Evolution, is offered as part of most hosting packages to help you in getting this set up. Each application boasts different features to allow you to set up your blog or forum in the way that best suits your needs.
We encourage those of you who are looking to increase the interest your site generates to add a blog or forum to your site to help in getting more people interested and active in using your site.
