How To Really Write Killer Blog Posts To Attract More Visitors?

While having a catchy headline results in getting more people to click on your link in search engine result pages and social media feeds, but having a good title only cannot do anything alone.

You need to feed your readers as much as you at the best quality possible. Hence, its must for you to write killer posts for moving up at the ladder of success. Writing killer posts is not as hard as it may seem and for doing so, here are few simple steps to be followed that are unfolded below.

Social engineering concept

1. Create killer headings:

An interesting title catches reader’s attention and killer sub headings keep them engaged throughout their reading experience.

Properly written and placed sub headings are not only interesting to read, but they are easy to digest and follow.

2. Add your own story:

Blogs are a place of conversation.

You can find all information about anything at their official website or Wikipedia.

But blogs are different.

There needs to be a touch of real talking style and tone. It should be like two people are talking to each other sitting face-to-face.

And, the best way for doing so is to add your own real story or experience wherever appropriate.

I wrote a story why I hate Adsense and within 24 hours. This post got 80+ comments.

3. Use attractive images:

In order in to write killer posts and then make them success, you need to know the importance of images.

Using attractive and relevant images in articles result in wonderful progress.

They make your articles look pretty and boredom free while at the same time, they provide readers something to look at for a while and start reading again after becoming fresh by that.

Don’t copy images from Google. Instead create your own or check out 101 ways to find images on WPhub

4. Make use of emotions and smiles:

Your readers are human beings right?

And, humans have feeling. ;)

A reader experiences different kinds of feeling while starting to read your article til the end. If you use emotions and smiles wherever suitable, it really makes it a real conversation.

And, trust me when I tell you, when you say something funny and put a smile at the end of sentence, anyone who readers will smile and love your words.

5. Use simple language:

This is a huge misconception particularly in minds of new bloggers.

They think they need to write high class English and do amazing references in order to create a killer post, but that’s not how it is. If you want to write a killer post then the only thing that you need to do is to express your point in such a way that it becomes clear and easy to understand.

The best way for doing so is by using simple English that everyone can digest.

6. Write in short paragraphs:

There are usually very long paragraphs in newspapers and books and some bloggers do the same.

But you need to realize one thing that no matter how good you write, if there are long paragraphs, not even one person will be interested in reading your blog post.

There is a difference between paper and computer screen. You can look at newspapers for hours without feeling anything bad, but it is impossible in case of monitors and LCD’s.

Your eyes cannot look at them and read long posts without having a brake. Hence, writing your posts in shorter paragraphs is a must for creating a blog post that works.

I simply tried my very hard to reveal the best practices for writing killer posts and now it’s up to you.

Easy Ways To Increase Subscribers

Here are some simple and effective ways to get more feedburner subscribers as well more email subscribers.

  • Why You Need to Start Building an E-mail List? 

Subscription Box or Icon

There is no way to can gain subscribers if you don’t place any feed Subscription box on your site, get a big RSS icon and neat RSS form on your homepage and below your posts respectively, you may consider getting a free default mail subscription form from feedburner or use a custom subscription form, or you can use pop-up or animated image to draw first visit attention. Just make sure that any form you used was well placed on your site.

Bonus Tip: Let them know that the subscription is free and fast.

Tell them you hate spam and you won’t spam them.

You can consider using MadMimi newsletter.

Encourage new subscribers by sending them personal messages.

Free Offer, Contest and Giveaways

If you really mean business in increasing your subscribers you might want to consider offer giveaways and free offers, write an interesting eBook and give it out for free, does this really help?

Oh yeah very well, recently I reluctantly subscribe to a blog because he’s giving away something I’d want so bad for free, and I know not only me will do this. Believe me almost every one love free offers.

Tips: Don’t tell them they must subscribe to your updated before they can win, but rather tell them that you will announce the winner through your RSS feed subscription link or newsletter, even those who doesn’t participated will subscribe to know the winner.

Feel me? :D

Show off with your Subscribers

Sing out your own praises by showing off with the number of your subscribers, sometimes many subscribers like to follow up with the blog having good numbers of subscribers, I believe the same reason you entered an eatery with many customers and desert the eatery  with no customer.

If you let them know the amount of your subscribers will motivate them to try and give your Blog a shot, you can blow your own horn by displaying your subscriber counts on your site where readers can easily sight it or probably very close to where you put your subscription box, you can use feedburner feed count widget for this.

Tips: Only do this if you have average subscribers, or telling a white lie about your subscribers by increasing the size, any which way you’re looking for subscribers.

Recover Unverified Email Subscribers

Before the RSS subscription process will complete, subscribers need to verified the process with their mail, sometimes some people are lazy and some are ignorant of the process there by ending up not completing the process, if your unverified subscribers go as high as 30-50% percent you may finally end up losing approaching subscribers, but good enough you can send message through email to those subscribers to remind them of their unsuccessful process.

If you’re using any email marketing services, You can do it easily. But feedburner it’s bit hard.

Tips: you can use your webmail account to this, as it create more standard than using other mail services.

Ask People to Subscribe

You doesn’t have to had a sinking feeling by asking people to subscribe to your newsletter or your blog updates, have you forgotten the saying that “ask and thou shalt receive” ? or wait, allow me to say this, some people are laid-back they don’t do something if you don’t ask them to, after you asked them to subscribe to your feeds give them reasons to subscribe.

get subscribers

 

Tips: At the end of your post you may say something related to this, “dear readers, my next post will be on  “how to get 10,000 of subscribers” you might want to subscribe to my updates to get it firs hand” and add your subscription link.

Check for Your Subscription Broken Link

All links get broken and unlink themselves this thereby causing you to loose new subscribers or your updates may end up not reaching your subscribers, so its your duty to check on your RSS feed link and your reach stats to pretty sure is working good, click on your link once in a while and enter a dummy email to make sure your subscription link is working good.

Use feed Directories

Some people say they used feed directories to get hold of new subscribers, you too might want to haunt for new subscribers using feed directories, oh no! are you picturing to get thousands of new subscribers with this method?

Stop kidding me! ;)

I can only assure you that using feed directories will plus and increase your subscribers, here is few feed directories you can start with you can do more research on your end.  http://www.feedster.com, , http://www.search4rss.com

Create Category Feeds

If you don’t have many categories, this might be skipped but to those who post on different categories you wouldn’t risk your readers who read a nice computer tips on your site and subscribe to your update just to receive some nice computer tips to be receiving  blogging tips post which he doesn’t have any interest in, to prevent this you can individually offer an RSS feed for each of your categories, this will enable each subscriber to get specific topics and not your whole content, WordPress users can easily do this but if you’re on blogger you might want to go extra miles to check which subscribers have the same common interest.

Use your RSS feed link when Commenting 

You heard about Commenting on other blogs to gain traffic?

It pretty work if you turn it into daily habit, but sometimes when comment luv not enabled and you have the opportunity to leave your site url, why not using your RSS feed link? Or perhaps when you write guest post for another blog you may add your subscription link to your profile bio, if you’re allowed.

What do you think?

I believe there are many tips one can easily implement to Increase Subscribers, however I just managed to mention just little few out of them which am pretty sure it will work good.

Why and How To Protect Adsense Account From Invalid Clicks?

Do you know your Adsense Account is in danger, yeah this is not an April fool prank or anything like a joke, this is as true as you are breathing from some past days many bloggers experiencing heavy invalid activity in their Adsense account.

You may have also experienced that number of clicks are much more than as comparison of the Estimated Earnings, especially from some countries like United states clicks are coming fluently but no money, CPC from such countries lies somewhere between $0.01 – $0.04 which is too less and this Cost per Click clearly saying that these clicks you are getting on your Ads are not Genuine for sure.

invalid clicks

Many Bloggers and Webmasters have lost their Adsense Ads in some past days because of this invalid activity or some other reasons.

Zac Johnson lost his 10 years old adsense acccount. Read his story

Just few days ago,  Theodore had been slapped by adsense. Read his story

and also because of their unawareness, so this is highly recommended that you won’t make such mistakes and keep your Adsense Account safe and secure.

How to know the Country from where invalid clicks are coming from ?

Many of you may already know about this but some don’t, so let me explain how to know from which country your Adsense Ads are getting unusually clicked, to find this out just follow these steps…

1.    Log in to your Adsense Account.

2.    Click on Overview this month.

Overview this month

3.    Select the Today date from the upper right corner.

see todays Adsense report

4.    Now click on Countries from Left sidebar.

click on countries

5.    Now carefully checkout the no. of clicks in front of each Country name.

If you detect any country from where clicks have been done but CPC from there are very low then it simply means that your Adsense Ads are in danger.

How to Protect Your Adsense Account?

See if you are getting unusual clicks on your Ads, then first of all you try to detect the IP(s) of clicker and if you successfully detect those IP’s then just block them to showing Ads so that they won’t see your Ads and this way they cannot click on your Ads.

If you’re unable to fetch the IP address from where clicks are being performed then you most recommended way to keep your Adsense account safe is that, you must stop showing ads on your site for at least sometime, because if you stop publishing ads on your sites for some time/days it may cause loss of some Dollars to you but if you cannot prevent it then you may loss your Adsense for forever, which sounds so bitter to any blogger.

Read: 5 Question to Ask Before Using Google Adsense

Note:

It has been also seen sometimes that CPC are good and clicks are coming in bulks (more than expectations), but those were also invalid clicks.

To understand this better, suppose one person click on your Ad, Google gave you $2.0 for that one click which means click : 1 and CPC : $2.0 then 9 clicks are also done by an other person which are invalid clicks and Google haven’t gave you anything for those clicks, now your stats will show click : 10 and CPC : $0.20 which also looks good and generally we think it’s Ok if CPC is good but as you in example it’s not always okay.

So if you ever feel unusual increase in no. of clicks on your Ads you must report to Google regarding this to keep your side strong.

Click Bombing/ Invalid Clicks FAQ’s

  • I lost my Adsense Account due to invalid activity on my account, what to do ?

When Google takes adsense away then they always mentions the reason behind it, so you need to ensure that it will not happen again in future and after that you can fill Appeal form provided by the Google to claim your Adsense account back, but don’t go for appeal form in hurry first of all you must take care of point they mentioned in their mail.

  • I filled Appeal form, will I get Adsense back ?

Well nobody can say Yes for this question, it’s all depend on Google, if they realize that you have done good business with them in previous time then there are some hope you will get your Adsense back, but not sure for anyone.

  • I filled Appeal form but no reply, what to do ?

You cannot do anything for this, all we can do is that we can fill Appeal form then Google will reply you back after taking their time, sometimes they takes 2-3 days for reply back.
