Hi - I'm a blogger! Can you help me? I read many articles of experienced bloggers with years of experience and was filled with ideas. However, I cannot increase the rating of articles by the number of views per user visit. How to do it?
OK. I will help you. I will show you one equation and five quick techniques. Here is the equation:
Number of read posts = Number of Visits * Number of views per visit
Instead of attracting more and more visitors to Your site, let's better discuss the second part of the equation - the number of views per visitor.
So, will you help me increase the number of views?
Not really. There are many ways to increase the number of views without increasing the number of articles. For example, one article can be divided into several pages. When you go to the next page of the article, viewing this article is increased by one unit.
Clear. Where should I start then?
One of the techniques is to relate relevant posts or content.
Ooo! I already did it. I even have a WordPress plugin ...
When a user read an article, he asks one simple question: “What should I do next?”. Links on the sidebar or at the end of the article answer this question. He can read other articles on your site on a topic that interests him. While he is reading, you own his attention.
How can you be interested in reading other articles?
For example, in each article can create a block where announcements or some links to relevant articles will be placed. This is different from the contextual link, which We are affixed with a simple anchor. When a user reads an article, he will definitely see this block. Besides, this block does not have to have links. There may be just recommendations for reading another such article on this topic, and the link is after the post. For example, here is a small block:
Yes, this is a good idea. I will definitely include links to relevant articles.
You need to try various ways to provide the user with information. It can be slide shows, pdf documents, video and audio. This will allow your users to read more information. In addition, it allows you to quickly acquaint users with the content of your site.
So that's why you wrote this post in Q. A format (questions and answers).
I did it not intentionally. This topic is very relevant. Therefore, I decided to consider the X question and give Y answers.
And that is correct. You need to keep your blog varied. Any recommendations for style?
Yes. And there are two of them - to be always optimistic 1) in posts and 2) in comments. Positive writing style and polite comments will encourage readers to stay longer on your site. Respect and benevolence are the natural needs of any person.
What else should be taken into account in the style?
It is important to take into account the intelligence of your readers. It is very important that they feel smart reading your articles. You should not express your thoughts with complex and long sentences loaded with rare words and concepts. They will have nothing to write in the comments or ask because of a misunderstanding of the essence of the article.
If your site’s audience is specialized, this is one style. If the general subject is another.
