After doing some research on why visitor engagement is so important to a website, here is what I found:

1. The search engines tend to rank highly engaging sites higher in the search results. Search engines like to see visitors actively engaging with website content. In their eyes, this demonstrates that the site has valuable or interesting content. After all, if there was nothing worthwhile on the page, visitors would immediately leave rather than actively engaging with the site. Because of this, increasing engagement on your website can actually help boost its standing in the search results.
2. You can get by with fewer visitors. Getting your visitors to interact with your content generally leads to more leads or sales. As a result, you don’t need huge numbers of people to visit your site. For instance, if you have a 10% conversion rate, you would only need 20 visitors to make the same number of sales as you would with 200 visitors and a 1% conversion rate.
3. You can focus on creating great content rather than on how to get more traffic. As a result, you will be adding value to the Internet rather than building a spammy, unhelpful site.

These are just a few of the reasons why it pays to create engaging content that your visitors want to interact with.
