10 Tips To Increase The Page Views For Your Blog

in Blogging, Traffic

Bloggers who have a low percentage of page view might be wondering why their blog’s page view is so low and how they can increase the page view percentage. Increasing the page views of your blog is something which we all need to work towards if we want our blog to be more successful.

Page views is the term used when a visitors comes to our blog, how much page this visitors has viewed before he/she leaves.

Increasing the page views of our blog can be really simple if you follow the steps in this post.

10 Tips To Increase Page Views

  • Related Posts
  • This is probably the most common thing bloggers do to encourage readers to read multiple pages on their blogs. Show related posts below every post you write and let your visitors do the rest.

    There are lots of plugins that you can use to show related posts on your blog. So I recommend that you install one and see how well this works for you.

  • Interlink Posts
  • Another very effective way, and most probably the best one to improve your blog page views is to link to the related posts in your post contents. If you write a post that may have some information similar to one of yours previous post, all you need to do is to link to it from that one. I’m always doing this and it really helps with my page views.

    This is also a great way to get more comments on the articles that you have interlinked.

  • Popular/ Most Commented Posts
  • All your visitors would like to see some of your posts that are popular or the ones with the most comment displayed on your blog. So do not be afraid to install a plugin which shows off these posts.

  • Archives/ Categories/ Tags
  • Some of your visitors like to dig through your blog and look for other posts of interest. Placing the categories and archives link in your sidebar will help in increasing your page views more than 50%.

  • Use Excerpts
  • Some bloggers actually like to display the full article on their home pages. I actually don’t like this, mostly because I have to scroll all way down to find something I am interested in. If you are like me, use excerpts displayed on your home page rather than full posts. This may improve your page views too!

  • Eye Catching Headlines
  • This is regarding to the previous point (use excerpts). If you use excerpts on your blog, make sure that you have eye-catching headlines which will make your visitors want to click and go to that blog post page to read the article. Eye catching headlines has been proven and worked for me, that is why I have such interesting headlines.

  • Make Your Blog Easy To Navigate
  • I don’t like to stay on a blog too long if it’s too clustered with links here, there and everywhere. If your blog is well tidy and clean, easy to navigate through then this will also help to increase your page views.

  • Search Bar
  • Most blog platforms come with a search function and it is VERY important that you display it on your blog where it is easily seen, preferable at the top of your blog or at the top of your sidebar. This will make it easier for your visitors to search for information that they want in turn increasing the percentage of your page views.

  • Tweet Your Post
  • If you are a regularly Twitter user like me, you will come to know that regularly tweeting your blog posts can give you high page views. What I also do is ask some of my followers for re-tweets and this has high impact on my blog. So remember to tweet your blog post because it is a great way of promoting your articles.

  • Quality Content
  • This is the most important thing that will have effect on your page views, quality content. If you visit any blog with quality content, you will find yourself browsing this blog for over 5 minutes or more. So remember to write quality contents for each blog post, because quality content is the king.

    Another thing I’d say is to take some time to think of post ideas that will go along with each other – so a bit like a series of posts but inter-related to the point that you can easily interlink them and keep your readers along the same mindset.

    Kharim Tomlinson 2 December 28, 2010 at 10:12 am

    That is so true Murlu. Getting ideas for a new post will really help if they are related as you say, and remember to interlink them. Thanks for the comment

    This is a great tip and what I sometimes do for some of my blogs is decide on a post idea, there is more tightly related things to talk about but would not fit the post itself, I divide it in two or three posts (find a great keyword for each), write all three, interlink them and voila :)
    It worked great on some posts I did for one of the websites I have, I got high Google rank for all four of them (yes there were four) and they are one of my most visited pages.

    Those are some really great tips! I like the category and archives on the side but I already have so much on the sidebar. I might bring back the Blogussion skin because I really liked the footer section. Gives me more room to work with.

    Reply

    Kharim Tomlinson 12 December 28, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    This is because with the Blogussion you can place widgets inside of the footer section, which I also like very much.

    Thanks for the comment bro :)

    Your last point is quality content, you should know about quote “Content is the king” and you just give some description for me that “the king” (a.k.a quality content) is not enough. It’s need another support from the others, so that make your blog have great page view. ^_^

    thanks

    Kim from hgh 37 January 13, 2011 at 2:30 am

    I think, showing up “Popular posts” is probably great way to let your visitors stick with your blog for long time. Usually, if not manipulated, “popular posts” will be best posts liked by overall visitors and they’re likely to attract more interest for new as well as regular visitors. Overall they’re going to make your blog even more interesting.

    Thanks for great topic and nice tips buddy :)

    For me the best way to increase page views and reduce the bounce rate is the functionality of your site and the speed of pages to load. The reason is simple because if a visitor comes to your site and waits more than a few seconds for your pages to load he will probably go away and find what he is searching on another site

    Hey Kharim, Nice post I enjoyed reading it. While I agree with all the 10 listed there i think Quality Content is a clear winner in all those. No one is going to view your blog if it doesn’t contains content of some quality.
