4 Simple Tips To Increase Readers For Your Blog Post Ankit patel SEO Analyst
TIP # 1: Place images • Aside from it being eye-catching and inviting, post images also help break down large chunks of texts into much more digestible parts for the eye. Remember that we human beings are very visual in nature (hence that explains why most people would rather go to the movie theaters than spend a day reading their books).
I honestly forgot the real stats but to further reinforce this, studies (and analytics shows) that readers are 4x most likely to engage and comment in a post with an image on it than that which only consists of plain black and white texts. • So Now Get your every post with eye-catching image and if possible then place that image in right side of your post and give title and alt tag on image.
TIP #2: Use a light grey background for your post section and dark grey for the text • Do you know why most themes out there are more grey-based than just plain white? Well, aside from aesthetic purposes- there’s actually a useful reason for this. In terms of texts, having a light grey background makes less strenuous for the eyes.
Likewise, same for the texts, it’s much better to use a dark grey color close to black (and not plain black itself. This is because grey (both light and dark) is a relatively cool and relaxing color unlike white background placed in a black text or vise versa. This helps to facilitate easy reading and I’m pretty sure you’ll do your readers a favor even if they don’t realize it.
TIP # 3: Use post formatting to your advantage • Some bloggers are too lazy to do this simple step. It’s relatively easy and it boosts readability a lot. If I were you (and if it suites the post), then go ahead and format headings and subtitles well with <h3>, <h2>, and <h1> tags. • This Heading Helps you to get more readers and easy to make your blog searchable.
TIP #4: It pays to have a steady post length • Readability can also be improved in the long term. Aside from having a good writing style (e.g. funny, engaging, informative, quality etc.), it also pays to have a steady post length to let your readers familiarize well with your entries.
While it doesn’t mean you have to forever stick to one regular post length, having a sense of tradition within the way you write (or publish) your posts makes it easier for readers to sync with you (like expecting how much time to devote to your posts or when to wait for the next one).
