How To Drive Traffic to Your New WordPress Site

3. Link To Internal Pages
Did you ever wonder why all successful blogs link to their older articles? Internal linking help search engines understand the importance of your content, context, and how it relates to other content on your website.
4. Use Rich Snippets
Rich snippets add useful metadata to your WordPress posts. Search engines can then use this data to display your site differently in search results. This boosts search traffic on your website.
5. Make Sharing Easy
Social media is an important source of traffic for any website. There are several plugins that can let you add countless social media sites. But one downside of using those plugins is that they will slow down your website.
