Every site owner does not want visitors to come to their site and not spend time or never return.
When a visitor is addicted to your site, he / she will spend more time surfing your site and will definitely return again for more info (this brings about high CTR and more comments). If you wish to retain your site visitors, read on this post to know 8 things you need to do.
8 Things That Makes Visitors Addicted To Your Site
1. Your post title and description
Nobody wants to read uninteresting posts and your post title & description shows the nature of your post. You may put related posts at the end of each site post or sidebar, but if it doesn’t have an enticing title nobody will click to read it. When writing a site post, spend enough time on the title and description because that’s what visitors see first. Make your post title interesting and try to bring out all the interesting stuff in the post via the description.
2. Ads organization
Do not fill up your site with ads, you can just use few ads to make it look neat, simple and friendly. No one will enjoy reading posts on a site filled with ads, it’s very annoying. Try to make all your ads look like part of your site design. Bombarding visitors with ads doesn’t increase your click through rate (C.T.R), it simply turns visitors off and makes the site look like a scam.
3. Your website design
The design of your site really matters. Avoid using too many flashy colors on your site, but rather use simple colors to make it look neat and simple. Also make navigation on your site easy by using breadcrumbs, placing your categories, search bar and subscription form where visitors can easily see them.
4. Content quality
Try to be informative and go straight to the point in your site post. Never divert from a certain topic to another in a post. When your post provide visitors with the information they need, they are most likely to share your post and return back to your site in order to acquire more info.
5. Regular posting
Keep your site updated with fresh and interesting posts. Let your visitors find new topics to explore each time they return to your site. Frequently updated site receive more returning visitors (I simply describe returning visitors as visitors addicted to your site).
Tips For Regular Site Posting:
Always ensure to research deep on any topic you’re about to write on and present your visitors with interesting and useful articles.
Avoid writing craps in order to post frequently.
6. Use of videos and images
Mix up your site posts with images. A lot of people easily get bored reading only text posts. You can make your site more interesting by adding images to posts and publishing videos occasionally. Videos and images makes your site look more professional. Also keep in mind that images you include in a post should be relevant to the post topic, and same goes for videos.
Who doesn’t love free stuff. Use freebies to encourage your site visitors. You can give them free EBooks, software related to your sites niche (and also important to them). You’ll be surprised with the positive results you will get by just doing this once or even twice a week. This keeps your visitors coming back for more and more freebies.
Advantages Of Freebies:

Increase in comments
Returning visitors (visitors addicted to your site)

Almost every site is comment enabled. If yours isn’t then you’ve missed a lot, but you can catch-up by simply enabling comment in your site NOW! The essence of this is to give your visitors a voice in your blog, let them speak their mind, drop their suggestions and encourage you.
In order to make people addicted to your blog, you need to make them feel free and comfortable, you can’t achieve that if you don’t accept comments.
Tip For Comments:
Always reply to comments when necessary and thank your commenters. This makes them feel more comfortable on your site. They can comment and ask questions knowing that you will reply.
In conclusion, your main aim of writing is for visitors to read it, share it and comment on it, so you should concentrate on knowing what your visitors want and how to give it to them. I hope the above tips will help you retain your site visitors.
