If you already make money from your blog and blogging skills, you will already be very aware of what you need to make your blog a huge success. But did you know that there is a lot more you can do to take your blog even further? It’s all about looking at the finer details. As the famous saying goes, ‘the devil is in the details’, and that is certainly true about each of your blog posts. Get it right, and you will be able to attract a larger readership and even more sponsorship and affiliate clients. Read on for some great tips on those small details that you might be neglecting!
Optimize Your Title
You will probably already know everything there is to know about keywords. Sprinkling them effectively throughout your blog post will help to improve the post’s SEO and will ensure that it reaches to the top results in all Google searches for those particular keywords. But did you also know that you should optimize your blog post titles with keywords too? Your titles need to do two jobs. One, include a keyword or keyword phrase. And, two, entice the reader to read the post. Once you start to write titles that do these two jobs, you will find that your readership is given a huge boost!
Work On Your Intros
So, you’ve optimized your title, now you need to make sure your readers continue reading past the first paragraph. To do that, you should work on your introductions in each blog post. The best way to do that is to keep all your first paragraphs short and snappy. Make sure they pack a punch! But you should also leave the reader wanting more. By doing so, they will definitely want to read more of the post!
Inspire A Discussion
It’s a good idea to get people to comment on the bottom of each blog post. This can help build a community feel on your blog and, if you join in with the discussion as well, shows that you are listening to all your readers. You can buy comments at websites like this one, but you might also want to try and spark a conversation underneath your posts by ending each blog with a call to action. A call to action could be something like ‘why not let me know in the comment’s below?’ These will persuade those who are tempted to leave a comment to do so!
Build Your Deep Links
As well as linking to external sites, you also need to add some deep links to your blog post. These are links to your older blog posts, and they are important as they encourage readers to stay on your site for longer. And that’s necessary for bringing your bounce rate down! Not only that, though, but they point readers to your other blog posts which could give them more information they’re looking for.
Hopefully, this blog post will help you improve all your future blogging!
