Basic advice to boost your audience

Starting a blog is a great adventure but can become a great disappointment. Here is some simple advice to new bloggers so blogging can stay enjoyable.

Boost your audience

Version française

My first advice will concern your posts contents. Before you even start to think of design features to help your blog's attractiveness, you should determine which content will appeal to visitors and make them want to come back.

Relevant Content

Your possible visitors are people like you and me. For them to read your post in full, you have to make sure it's content is interesting and give them something new.

Even if the matter has been treated many times, you can still bring your own perspective. It is this unique point of view that will appeal to your readers and can convince them to come back.

Structure Content

Your post should not be written as you think of it, without any editing. If you are a young blogger, think back at your literature teachers' advice, and write as if it was an essay.

You must have a title, paragraphs and sub paragraphs. Your title is called the H1 tag in SEO language, paragraphs being H2 tags and sub paragraph H3 tags. The best option is to have all three of them, but it is still fine enough for your text to have H1 and H2 tags while you are only a beginner.

Obviously and importantly, a sub paragraph without a paragraph looks clumsy. Not having a heading paragraph with a sub paragraph is a mistake. In SEO, H3 tags come after H2 tags.

Content length

The longer is your text, the better appreciated by search engines. Yet, be careful and avoid trapping yourself into a loop.

A 800 words text is long. You can find options in every word processing software to count them.  

It will be advisable to start with well structured 300 to 400 words posts, without spelling or grammatical mistake.

Give some reference to be credible

If you are writing about a study, a book or another post, you have to share a link towards your sources. It will give your argument credibility.

Give your visitors a voice

If you would like your visitors to leave you comments, I will suggest to finish your post on a question. Be careful, you do not have to transform your argument into an interrogation, but you can start a polite and pertinent exchange.
