Tips when visiting posts

Go to a post that interests you, leave a comment if you appreciate it.  Don’t leave from that page, either click on another page or an ad e.g. a Google ad that attracts you, and leave the site.

Why leave in this manner?

  1. By all means, if you see an ad that interests you click on it, and the post owner will be thankful for the donation.

     2. Clicking on another page to leave the site.

I will explain this. It involves taking advantage of search engines.

I hear some of you saying that you don’t care about search engines or analytics. That is OK,  but not caring does not remove the effect this is having on your traffic.  As you would have found out by now, there is no silver bullet that blasts you to blogging success. It is a whole lot of small things that work together over time to get you there. It takes patience and consistency.

For those who have installed Google Analytics – click on Acquisition > All Traffic >  Source/Medium Look under the tab headed Pages Sessions, Look down at the 1 pages and then look across at the Average Session Duration and nearly every time you will see 00.00.00  This is because the visitor only went to one page. Even if they stayed on that page for 20 minutes, you would only be credited with between 0-10 seconds.

The 1-page visitors will give your blog a high Bounce Rate that waters down your statistics.  A high bounce rate gives the impression that your visitors are not engaged, they only visited one page. 

It does not seem fair, as the visitor may have stayed to read the whole page.  Fair or not, it is a fact that we have to work with.  To get around this LEAVE FROM A SECOND PAGE resulting in a lower bounce rate and higher average session duration.

Social Media

I was a slow starter into social media. It now takes longer to build a following when many of the media sites are geared to make money. I cannot bring myself to buy likes/follows.

Here is a method to get more followers/likes.

  • Follow/like all of the Pit Stop Crew – they will follow/like you back.
  • Your fellow bloggers at this rally want to increase their social media too. Follow/like as many of them as you can. If, after a week they have not followed back, go and unfollow/unlike them.

Follow this method and your social media will grow.

Features

Yes, we have features each week. An awesome profit of being featured on the BLOGGER”S PIT STOP is that your post will get a good Do Follow back-link from the Crew. That means that you get a link from each of the Crew’s sites right to your site.  That has a huge impact on your search engine value.

Many sites that have features give No Follow links that have no advantage to you.
