By David Bain

Here are nine tips that will help your network attract visitors—and keep them coming back:

1. Become more respected in your field every week. Appear in blogs and forums specific to your industry every week. Revisit your comments to see if anyone has replied to you, seeking clarification.

2. Submit one article a week for publication elsewhere. Strive to develop one-on-one relationships with other publishers. Ensure that you are renowned for writing quality oriented, informed articles, and that you're available for further comment and interaction.

3. Add a minimum of two new articles to your website every week. Don't just stick up your new site and then say, "Well, I'm glad that's done. All I have to do is promote it now." Search engines love a flow of continually new, relevant and informed content.

4. Keep your visitors. After you've worked hard at attracting visitors to your site, you need to ensure that you keep them. Use RSS, email newsletters, podcasts and other forms of visitor retention. Just because somebody isn't a customer now doesn't mean that they won't be in the future.

5. Write press releases. Once a month you should be writing an article that is so good or stocking a new product that is so impressive you have to tell the world about it. This will keep you at the forefront of your industry.
