How to increase traffic to your website?
1. Unique meta description
Have a unique meta description for each page. If you don’t, Google will automatically pull your site’s tag line or home page’s meta for all your pages. this can result in duplication issues.
2. Reduce duplicate content type
Add “no-follow” tags to all non important listings like categories, tags etc. Avoid adding tags, categories etc to the sitemap. This will again avoid a lot of duplicate content generated using posts and then categories and tags.
Create a good sitemap for your site. Internal page links are as important as external links.
Improve the site pagination. An article with 2 pages should be classified as one instead of two, thus avoiding duplication.
