There are 4 things every blog post needs in order to keep your audience, and overall goal in mind. These certain features should be on every single blog, no matter the niche, or where you are on your blogging journey. These blogging tips can help increase your blog’s conversion rates which is what we all want right?
Create a fun, catchy title
When creating your post titles, you want them to entice people to read your content. Your post title is what will not only be seen on your blog, but on social media networks, and in search engines. With so much similar information available out there, you want to do what you can to make sure that your content is what people are choosing to read.
An image, with title, description, and alt text
Blog posts without pictures are harder to read, so you want an image. Make sure the image is yours to take and if you’re using someone else’s photo make sure it’s free.When you’re adding the image itself, change the name to something other than 839.jpg. Use your keyword, or the title of your blog post, or something relevant. An image is also important to social media like facebook and especially Pinterest.
Link to previous posts
Never publish a post, share it a few times, and then forget about it. Whenever possible, you should be placing links to your older content, within your new content. Linking to older posts allows you to quickly elaborate on the point you’re making, and drive traffic to your older content. This will achieve two things: get people to keep reading, and tell Google you’re serious about this. Google appreciates and rewards sites that link to great content, even if it’s something you said before.
Asking questions is a great way to encourage people to leave comments on your blog and engage with your content. Get a conversation started with a question so people can share their views. If you want your readers to do something specific like sign up for your newsletter then add a call for action with a link so your readers will be clear on what to do and where to go.
