Would YOU like to get tons of readers for your blog post?
Of course you do! That’s the reason why you are reading this post.
All of us as bloggers want to get readers to our blog post. That’s the reason why we write them.
Getting readers for your blog post is not just getting people who will consume the information that you have written, but this also means these people could become targeted traffic and also loyal readers of your blog.
But can you get people to read your blog post?
In this blog post I am going to be giving you 5 tips on how you can get some blog post readers.
Use Eye-Catching Headlines
In order to get your blog post noticed in the first place then you must have an eye-catching title/headline.
This is one of the first things that always gets noticed by most people, the headline of the blog post.
Why is it that the headline gets noticed first before the whole entire blog post?
This is because the headline font is normally bigger than the font that is used in the body of the blog post. Most of the times the headline for the blog post is used with the H1 tag so as to get your blog readers to notice the article and also for search engine robots to pick up your headline as well.
The more eye-catching your article headline is then the easier it may be to get people to read your article.
Having interesting/eye-catching articles for your blog post will do the trick in getting more readers for your blog post.
Comment On CommentLuv Enabled Blogs
My first point was about getting your blog posts noticed by people so that you can stir up some interest in them so that they can click on your blog post headline and read your blog post.
You can now make comments on blogs that have the CommentLuv Plugin installed.
When you leave a comment on those type of blogs, then you have the option of promoting your blog posts. This means after you leave a comment a link to your blog post of choice will be at the bottom of your comment.
Notice how having an eye-catching headline and CommentLuv plugin works in promotion your blog post?
CommentLuv enabled blogs are a great means of promotion for your new blog posts whenever you leave a comment on those blogs.
If the blog that you are commenting on has lots of traffic then you can get people from that blog to read your blog post.
Insert Cool Images On Blog Posts
A picture tells a thousand words.
Do you believe in that statement?
I do! What about you?
Pictures have the power to light up a room and put a smile on people’s face after grabbing their attention. This is why an art gallery is full of smiling people.
Having pictures on your blog post will also help to grab the attention of onlookers who browse your blog.
Having cool images which helps to describe your blog post is a great strategy that you can use to catch the attention of your blog visitors so that they can read your blog post.
Another thing that you can use the get people to read your blog post is by the use of infographics.
Infographics are informational graphics, meaning that you have information written on a picture.
You can compile an entire blog post into an infographic, make it interesting and then you will have tons of readers to your blog post.
Have A Great Introduction
Most bloggers don’t want to heavy down their front page with long texts so what they do is use excerpts on their blog’s front page.
Excerpts are the first few opening sentences to a blog post.
Excerpts can also be described as the introduction to a blog post.
If you use excerpts on your blog post then no doubt you would want to write interesting introduction as well for your blog post.
Blog posts introduction helps to wet the appetite of readers so that they want to read the full blog post.
The blog post should be interesting and have information which will capture the attention of your blog readers having them reading to the end of your blog post.
Normally a great introduction means a great blog post, so great effort should be placed into writing great introductions for your blog posts so that you can get people to read your blog post.
Share Your Articles On Social Media/Social Networking
Another great way to find readers for your blog post is on social media or social networking sites.
These types of sites are normally full of online people and you can catch their attention and bring them back to your blog post.
All you need to do is sign up to the popular social media or social networking sties, take to the other members of the site if possible, get some followers or friends and after that you can start sharing your blog posts with them.
Try your best to find people who share the same interests with you, this will make sharing your articles with them much easier.
The reason for using social media or social networking sites to get blog readers is because millions of people use them and it is a great free means of promotion for your blog post.
When sharing be sure to have a great description or title for your blog post and for other sites such as Pinterest use great eye catching images.
If you haven’t been using social media or social networking sites to promote your blog posts then you have been missing out on getting blog post readers.
I write my blog posts to educate others about the wonderful things that they can achieve through blogging.
So the more persons I can get to read my blog post then the better is for both of us.
I hope that you have liked my blog post and thanks for reading.
