  • There are a large number of websites for news, content and other things which are mushrooming in the internet and it is really a difficult task for the website owners to attract the requisite volume of traffic to their respective sites. Still there are certain things which can be considered to achieve this objective. Some of them are -

    1. Enrich the content - This is the most important thing as the viewers are always attracted to a rich site having good coverage of the topic and its historical background along with the contemporary viewpoints on the issue.

    2. Be impartial - One has to give the unbiased news and should not mislead the viewer. Once the viewer sees that there are fake and crafted things being broadcasted, he will avoid the channel.

    3. Authentic content - Before releasing any important and sensitive news it is always better to confirm and check its authenticity from the reputed sources.

    4. Participation of viewers - To make the channel popular it is suggested to start the participation of the viewers by inviting them in the daily quiz or daily question and then intimating the names of viewers who have participated, just like done by the popular radio channels.

    5. Patience is the key - Any new channel takes time in getting popular and some hard work is required in the initial stages. One should remember that there is a cut throat competition in the market and persistent efforts only can yield the desired results.
