into full time and regular readers. This will not only increase your readership but will also spread your content across many wires through word of mouth. So here we present some tips which might really help you to grow the readership on your website. The tips discussed below have been dealt with in detail in a google blog post.

1. It is very important the visitor comes to know about the purpose of your website within the first 8 (eight) seconds of his / her visit to the website. People are very busy and most of them scour the internet for information ade are off once they get hold of what they were looking for.

2. Sell yourself. Tell your readers or visitors about the tangible benefits of using your services or reading or using your website in a short sentence.

3. Use relevant images to substantiate or describe whatever you are trying to say or sell. You should use product images instead of generic stock photos, icons with blocks of text, and buttons instead of links. Low quality and irrelevant images can kill your site's credibility and visitors will very easily lose interest in your website.

4. Use a rocking design for a website. Investing in design for your website really pays. A good design will catch the eyes of your visitor right away and they will be impressed.

A mix of all the above four websites should go into building of any website.
