Blog Tips To Keep Your Readers Stuck

Today, I will continue talking about blog visitors and making money with a blog. My last post  Make Money Blogging: 6 Simple Steps To Pull More Blog Visitors covered how to get more visitors, so now we will cover how to keep them stuck to your blog.

The best way is to keep readers stuck to your site is to provide people with good quality information and be helpful. Blogging has become one of the best tools for people that are trying to make money with a blog. Blogs that have crappy content, will have a very hard time keeping readers on their site, and monetizing that blog. blog traffic, make money blogging, blog tips

Here are some ways to write quality posts and keep readers stuck to your blog like jelly on  your fingers! :)

Keep Your Blog Posts Short and Sweet… When You Can

Ok I have trouble with this myself. But I think that if you have good content, it is ok to run a little longer.

But try to keep your posts straight to the point, since shorter posts normally have the best chance to keep readers stuck to your blog. Many people that read blogs are not looking for long run on posts, so keep it simple and move on.

Think Like Your Readers When You Write Your Post

You should be doing research within your niche, read what other bloggers are writing about, read what is in the headlines. Keep your posts targeted at your niche, this way you have the best chance for more visitors and keeping them coming back.

Write Like Your Having A One On One Conversation

You should be writing to your readers as if you were having a one on one conversation. Stay away from big complex words, keep the flow going.  Try talking to yourself as you write, sounds crazy but it has helped me :)

Keep Visitors Stuck With A Good Blog Design

Stay away from to much movement, colors. A nice clean easy to navigate blog makes people want to stay longer if things are easy to find. I like a good design helps stand you out of the bazillion blogs out there and makes branding yourself easier.

Promote Links To Other Parts Of Your Blog

Always offer your visitors a place to go after they read a post. Link to related posts, products, services and other useful resources, including your own social media sites.

This is just a few steps to keeping visitors stuck to your blog.

What do you think? Do you have any tips to share?

    I think another good tip to add to your list would be to:

    Reply to all comments that warrant a response, even if it is just to welcome a new reader to your blog. :)

    Yes great tip… I reply to everyone. Such a simple thing to do with a big return.

  • webtechwise

    Great tips John. writing short posts is not always easy but it's true a blogger should not go in circles when trying to make a point and present things in a simple and straight forward way. I also like the One On One Conversation tip.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Omer,, glad you like the post. Yea I agree that sometimes you just need to write a long post, but when ou can write short to the point posts.

  • http://geekcom.org Noah Rainey

    You nailed the “Keep it simple and keep to the point”. Good content John. Looking forward to seeing more of it!

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Nice post John. I think retention of readers is a big deal.Some times reasons are non understandable and you loose your readers. A good design, quality post, attractive title are key to retain, but still Problem persists some where.
    Well giving value to your readers in shape of downloads or giving away premium theme also helps in retention.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Imran..TY for the comment. Glad you liked the post. Yea I agree.. retention is tough you can do everything correct and still lose readers. Human nature is hard to pin point.

    Best you can do is do all the basics and hope more and more readers stay around.

    John, I gotta work on the shorter posts, really. But when I start typing, all bets are off. 😉 Agree that simple formatting: bullet points, bolds, subheads, graphics can improve the readability of a blog, make a difference. As to thinking like the readers, think it depends on the type of blog: Is it a blog for money (ads) or a business blog, representing a brand/company? Are you just looking for readers, a general audience even within a niche; or are you targeting a specific audience, of say potential clients? Writing for the readers you have vs. those you want? I write a mix of posts, trying to broaden the readership yet in the end, I always post from the gut, what I know. FWIW.

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Davina.. You should think like a reader in any niche your in for whatever your goal is with your blog. How do you like to read posts? How do you like them layed out? What topics you like? chances are what you like as a reader, so do your readers.

    I’m with you on smaller posts haha as much as I try they all become monster posts.

    Its ok to have a long post, if you info to fill it and your not filling it with over talk just to make look like a bigger post then it has to be.

  • http://keepupwiththeweb.com Sherryl Perry

    You didn’t specifically point it out but – ending your post with a question (as you did here) is a good tip. It helps to engage us in conversation. (Actually, questions serve as a call to action of sorts.)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Sometimes I end with a question.. sometimes I don’t. I think always ending with a question waters it down and people will get so used to seeing it they will over look it.

    But if used right… I agree it is a great way to keep them longer and continue the convo

    These are great tips. I would add that grammar is REALLY important if your readers are also fellow writers and bloggers.

    I love this article, and wanted to humbly share that there is a missing contraction in the headline, “Write Like Your (should be “You’re”) Having A One On One Conversation.”

  • http://www.techpupil.com Jeevan Jacob John

    I love the tips that are presented here, John!

    I like to talk while I write my post. It has helped me a lot (sometimes, I do get post ideas while I talk and blog at the same time). Having a conversational format for your posts will help you to build trust among your readers.

    Anyways, thank you for the post,

    Jeevan Jacob John
    P.S. Loved the Title 😀

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Thank U Amy for the edit.

    I believe spelling, grammar are important but not as important as the message. :)

  • http://www.johnpaulaguiar.com John Paul

    Glad you liked that title Jeevan haha

    Im like you, more I talk thru the post, the better it comes out.
