Many webmasters donít consider that also the website which is referenced by a story has to offer thrilling and interesting information about the topic of the story. Even an excellent story does not help much if you website does not contain further information which fascinates the new visitors and motivates them to stay on the site. For sure it is not always necessary to offer this information in text form: Many visitors like interactive sites, thrilling videos or artistic presentations that make them laugh, entertain them or enchain them in another way.
