At the end of the day...you want to make a little somethin'...a little ca-ching...a little moooolah from all your hard work blogging. More views of your blog posts, means more money to be earned through your ad revenues & other revenue tools.....So today I will write a teeny tiny blurb about a few tips that I have noticed which have increased my blog post views.
Always include a picture.... It can be the tiniest thumbnail, or even a random flower shot, but a Photo always attracts more views. The thumbnail of the photos is catchier to the eyes of those that you share your post with on Social Media as well...such as facebook, twitter, email etc. Our human eyes naturally gravitate to pictures and artwork first before we take the time to read through a well written paragraph.
Even if you can't come up with a very fresh "free from copyright" relevant picture to add to your blog post, just use your camera phone to take a photo of the clouds, or a tree or a flower or my personal fave....my epic grey calculator. Blogger has a very easy tool by which to add photos to your blog....so use it...and see your blog views increase.
That brings me to the second suggestion. ALWAYS share your blog posts on social media. Tweet your posts on Twitter and include appropriate hashtags #coolhashtageh. Share your posts via email or facebook or your other fave social media platform. (Note that you want to have personal permission to share your posts with folks via email, as there are very strong anti-spam laws in Canada.")
The Third suggestion I have for you bloggers out there ...grinding out those precious words with such epic effort and wit....is simply this: Promote your blog by copy and pasting your blog's url as often as you can ........especially when you write comments on other people's blogs or youtube videos or other online platforms. Repetition is a good thing. Just by mentioning your blog's catchy name will allow potential new "fans" to find your blog. You want your blog name to be easy to find, easy to spell and easy to say!!
Well friends, that's it for today, three tips for the low low price of FREE!
