Want more traffic? Make a better site

I like this report from Min Online about why ew.com and parenting.com have seen such impressive traffic growth over the past year. Their secrets? Better, more frequently updated content, and an effort to reach more readers from elsewhere, pulling them in from search, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

It’s easy to get caught up in the details, but it really is that simple: push for increased quality and quantity, and the readers will follow. Make a website you would want to read, and others will, too.
