Aside from being a fun hobby, what is the point of having a
blog? The answer is to draw readers. Whether you are selling
advertising, a product, or just your own set of ideas, you
as large a readership as possible with most blogs. So if that
the case, then it is important to know how to draw readers to
your blog. There are a number of ways to increase the
readership of your blog. Here are four tips that will help you
to increase your blog readership that are easy to do and will
definitely pay off for you.
First of all, to increase readership you would want to
the number of pages each reader is seeing. You don’t want to
judged only on your last post, but rather on the whole of your
work. To that end, try highlighting related posts within your
blog. At the end of an article, highlight posts that may be of
interest to those who like the current post. Most blog
platforms are fitted with plug-ins that will help you with
this, but if they are not, then go ahead and at least list the
links to other pages manually. Another similar idea is to
highlight the related posts within the content of your post.
you are talking about a subject you have discussed before,
off of one of the keywords into the past post that is related.
This will also help a past post to maintain its freshness.
A second tip for increasing your blog readership is to think
about doing a series. A series is a great way to keep a reader
coming back again and again. In addition, if you are linking
back, you can get readers looking at multiple posts even after
you are done with the series. Be careful when doing a series,
because you do not want to frustrate readers. However, if you
have a topic you genuinely think you should handle over a
period of time, then a series can really help your overall
readership. If you are curious as to whether or not a series
working for your blog, then check posts. See if readers are
posting through the series to see if they are following you.
they are, then your series is a success and you are only
your blog readership.
Another way to increase readership is a little more
“controversial” if you will. You can try putting excerpts on
the front page of your blog from certain posts. Many people
claim it is just a way to get more hits on your site. The
is that extra hits are a little side benefit of it, but the
value is that it can make your site more engaging. By adding
excerpts to the front page you can manage the front and keep
fresh while also teasing those who get that far into reading
more than just your most recent blog post. This will encourage
a prospective reader to explore your blog site a little more
than they may have normally. Again, you want to be judged by
the whole of your work, or at least by a larger piece of your
work than just one post and this will do that. If your writing
is up to par, then, you will see a rise in your readership.
Finally, if you really want to build and increase readership,
you have to have good quality content. It should be useful,
original, and interesting to your target audience as well as
keeping them wanting more of the same. The more you raise the
quality of your blog’s content, the more you will see your
membership, readership, and page hits go up without even
to use any other “tricks.” People know what they like and they
like quality for the most part. Giving the readers what they
are after is probably the best way possible to increase your
Having a blog can not only be fun, but if you are doing it
right it can also be profitable. Either way, though, you want
to maintain and increase a following, or readership. There are
as many tips out there to increase blog readership as there
blogs, but to really get things going, consider using these
tips. Follow them and you will see your readership grow.
