Keep Your Blog Readers On Your Blog With This Clever Internal Links Strategy

Keep Your Blog Readers On Your Blog With This Clever Internal Links Strategy

Welcome to the bounce-free zone.

Not in an "anti fun" sort of way (bring me a bouncy castle any day).

I'm talking about your blog visitors.

This hit and run crap has got to stop.

I know you feel it.

Maybe you're just starting a blog and getting anxious, or maybe you've got an established blog that's just not generating return readers, or your visitors are bailing after only viewing one or 2 pages.

It's frustrating. I get it.

Okay, and it can hurt a little...

You work your ass off on your content. People landing on one of your slaved-over blog posts and bouncing thereafter?

After I mended my bouncy wounds (not the bouncy castle ones, the ones from people leaving my blog after only seeing a page or two), I decided to find a strategy that I could duplicate again and again without taking a ton of time. But something that also helped me keep my content valuable and up-to-date.

And now I'm handing over the bright and shiny keys to that time-saving, fresh-ifying strategy to you right now.

Give Your Blog Posts More Pizazz: 2 Things You Should Add To Your Next Post

She sat before her slightly smudged MacBook Pro screen. 

Turning on the desk lamp, she realized something was missing. 

Something completely out of place, yet she couldn't quite put her finger on what it was.

So, she sat—staring at the blank document on her computer screen.

And there it was.

The absent piece hit her like a line-drive to the head.

She had no story. Nothing to add that would tantalize. Nothing to grab her reader's interest and walk him through her content.

All she had was a boring old business blog post outlined that'd likely leave her few readers fumbling for the back button.

Just then, her face lit up. Her heartbeat sped and her mind began to churn with something.

Something that'd leave her readers taking what would've been a boring business blog post, and devouring every word with a digital fork.

6 Blog Changes That Tripled My Email Opt-In Rate In Less Than 4 Weeks (Twice)

What's she doing?

A thought that's crossed your mind a time or two. Okay, mine too.

It seems like blogging just clicks for some people.

You've thought: "Is someone helping them?" or "They've probably been doing the whole content marketing and email list thing since before it was a 'thing', anyways."

And sometimes that's true.

Sometimes a blogger will say they've "only been blogging for a year" and grew a 10,000 email subscriber list and a quarter-million dollar blog in less than 12 months.

Then your hopes and dreams of skyrocketing your own business like that are dashed when you Google them to find that they've been planting digital seeds for years and years prior to launching their mega-successful blog.

Disheartening, I know.

But, who ever said that doing anything fast was a good thing.

7 Types Of Blog Posts That Get Noticed, Read, And Subscribed To

7 Types Of Blog Posts That Get Noticed, Read, And Subscribed To

Why do some posts just "take off" and others fall flat?

Is it the way they're written?

The amount of email subscribers someone has?

The social followers sharing it?

Maybe.

If I told you that a simple factor in the development of a blog post that gets noticed, read, and subscribed to is based on the format of the post itself, would you believe me?

I'm sure you're skeptical.

I was too. Until I put it to practice.

And since, I've found that the start to any blog post, whether click-bait crap or quality, show-stopping content-gasm comes down to one main thing:

The title.

The title is what gets noticed and clicked, then it's up to you to keep your reader entranced and trading in their email address for your continual content and more.

But, a title can be more enticing because of it's structure, not just what the words actually state. So that's exactly what we're covering in this post.
