What we want to address here today is how to position your site to be one of the top blogs in your niche. No doubt the use of numerous SEO and blog design approaches can be very advantageous to positioning your site. Our focus here however will be on making the most out of every entry to the blog site itself.
Here are 7 blogging tips you can use immediately when posting entries to increase the popularity of your site within your niche.
Let the Reader Know How You Feel
Show some attitude when applicable in your posting, after all it is your blog. Readers will enjoy your display of ‘personality’ and so will you since it will make your writing a lot more fun and therefore easier for you.
Keep Post Brief
Your post does not have to be article length but in fact it would usually be better that it isn’t. A composition of about 250 to 300 words will work just fine. This will help maintain the readers’ attention long enough to read the complete post and it won’t be as much effort for you to write.
Do what you can to capture the readers attention. Since the headline will be the first things they see try to insure it is an accurate ‘portrayal’ of what the content holds for the reader.
When possible the use of shock or humor will work wonderfully but be sure to deliver to the reader what your headline may promise.
A show of enthusiasm or passion in your writings will serve to get your reader more involved in what they are reading. If your tone sounds bored it is only natural that the reader will quickly adopt this feeling and probably quit reading.
Also if you are passionate or excited about what it is you’re writing this will only make your efforts seem more like play and less like work.
Reader Friendly Format
Make your posts easy to read by following a layout that is easy on the eyes. Avoiding long paragraphs will lessen the eye strain of your readers.
The use of bold letters or underlining also makes it easier for the reader to scan your post for the highlights or important points of the post itself.
Also when possible, try to present your points in a listed fashion whether thru the use of subtitles, numbers, or bullets points.
