Optimizing for engagement will be beneficial weather engagement metrics has an impact on rankings or not.  This article will discuss ways in which you can optimize for visitor engagement.


With the amount of competitors and visitors having more and more options it can be difficult to engage for a long period of time on a single website. The easiest and most common way of trying to engage with your audience is through good content, decent and knowledgeable content on subject matter is often the way forward. However, a problem with content based approaches is that it assumes your audience wants to read long pieces of interesting content and that they are somewhat a passive recipient of published information. 

Encouraging participation instead of just delivering content is a brilliant way to engage with your audience. As the internet is moving towards a place where you can build relationships as well as gather information. Social media is an example of this happening; information is shown in many different ways on different social media platforms and normally put out there for others (normally friends) to engage about this information.
