John Mueller from Google recently a webmaster replied that one small change will result in a drastic increase when it comes to ranking on search engines. There is a very simple statement immediately killed Barry Schwartz on his blog. Of course this statement by Google may have given way more relaxed from a different perspective that Google pushed for years, work patiently on content, forget about shortcuts and everything else and rating will come sooner or later. This strategy is ok, but the small and simple things can do wonders when it comes to ranking and traffic, but also time. Barry is a prime example of said simple and basic setting title tags which can result in a huge difference, but it is not the only little thing that you can do.
The titles of your articles can be one of those little things; the article targeted specific topic can certainly mean a lot to visit. Several stronger and better links can lift the entire domain. There is a whole set of little things that can significantly and positively affect the growth of traffic. Pay attention to your stats and understand why someone landed on your domain and you will immediately understand how can the smallest things, a change that may take 2-3 seconds to bring someone else.
