Improve Website Traffic Using Google Webmaster Tools

Google Web Search is a good source for getting tons of visitors. It uses page ranking system to index the search result.  In indexing, page rank plays key role in determining which pages appear first in search results.  A page with a higher Page rank is deemed more important in search results and is more likely to be listed above a page with a lower Page rank. Above lines conclude that - " In order to get traffic from Google, We have to improve our website Google page rank."

Now improvement plan comes here. Your website should be content rich and updated on regular basis. Also, try to follow quality content guidelines.
