If you think that driving target traffic to your blog is enough to help you monetize your site then you’re wrong. You can drive as much target traffic as you can but if these people are already leaving before they even see what you have to offer, then all your efforts and resources are wasted.
The first step to resolving this problem is by determining the possible reasons why people just come and go to your blog site. People who do not approve your writing style will definitely read a few lines from your blog, leave and that’s about it. There is nothing you can do about this. However, if the reason is due to your inability to reach out to your readers and let them know that there is more to your website, then it is time to start implementing a few changes to your website.
- Utilizing Lengthy Posts
Divide long and lengthy blog posts into different blog posts. Instead of writing all of your ideas in a single article cut them into sections to create a group of posts that compliments each other. This will not only increase your page view but will also allow you to better manage your blog content.
- Using Internal Links
Use internal links on each blog post that would showcase other pages in your blog about the same subject. You can write about a single subject and cover it from different angles which would allow you to create different blog posts. Provide keyword links in every post to direct your reader to the next related articles. By connecting these articles through internal links it would be easier for your readers to go find related articles that can give them better understanding of your target niche.
- Providing Related Posts
Linking related posts at the end of each of your article is essential for promoting other pages on your blog site. These related links aim to encourage your readers to read more articles on your website that are closely related to what they are already reading. This practice is so effective that WordPress actually made a plug-in that automatically post-links relatable content for each article.
- Utilizing Your Sidebars
Sidebars make ideal locations for showcasing the different pages in your blog. Sidebars are usually utilized to promote numerous ad campaigns. However, not all ad campaigns are delivering the results that you want which means its time to get rid of these ads and start promoting links for your most popular, recent or group posts. This type of page view promotion technique encourages reader to read articles with topics that they didn’t know they were interested in until they saw it from your sidebar. This ultimately will increase the viewers time spent on your website.
- Use Tags and Category
Blog post tag and category allow readers to easily locate other articles that are related to their target subject. Tags and category are utilized to group blog posts with similar subjects or are somehow related to each other. This is a good way to provide suggested readings for readers who want to know more about a particular topic.
Improving your blog’s page view performance depend on many factors, most of which rely on your ability to effectively utilize the different channels provided above. Internal links, related links and Sidebar article promotion will not do much help if you don’t have attention grabbing article titles that would entice your reader to keep reading the pages on your site.
Category and tags will not give your favorable page view increase if you don’t accurately classify the articles into to proper groups.
Properly utilizing the tips provided above combined with providing useful and credible content will help successfully increase your number of page view, ideally increasing your sites income.
