More specifically, focus here where my arrow points:
Does your Bounce Rate look like this? Do you get more one-page visits that loyal readers? Then this quick guide to growth will really help you.
I’m about to show you how I used ordinary methods available to all bloggers to get my Bounce Rate down to 1%. I got a lot of other great things (subscribers, likes, comments, shares) in the process.
All about bounce rate
Google’s definition of Bounce Rate
Bounce rate is the % of single page visits your blog receives. Meaning, if your blog gets 10 visitors a day, and 7 visitors leave after seeing just one page, your bounce rate is 70%. You want Bounce Rate to be as low as possible, because that means people are actually clicking around on your blog.
Note the time span above.
4 months, from April 2012 to end of July 2012. I had grown my blog in some pretty startling ways in just 4 months. The best part is, I did it all with simple methods available to every blogger.
How would you like +20,000 pageviews in 4 months?
Taking Control of Your Blog
What did I do to get these great numbers? Nothing special.
I was changing things like titles, fonts, images, my tone, my blog layout, and other mainly visual aspects that were absolutely killing my blog. You see, my content was always awesome. I bet yours is to. But I was presenting it horribly. Either my readers couldn’t find it, or when they did it just wasn’t layed out in an exciting way.
That’s all the explanation I can insert right here. Any more, an I’d risk being overly wordy and from my experience, readers don’t like being bombarded with facts.
That said, you can still learn my methods, and I’m still willing to share the facts…just sign up for my Dear Blogger Newsletter.
Want to know how I grew my blog +20,000 pageviews and +2000 readers in 4 months? Fill out your email below and I’ll send you my free eBook covering how I reduced bounce rate, got more readers, kept them for longer, and a lot more great stuff!
Readers do work for you
Fact: When you keep readers on your blog longer, they start doing the work for you.
Why are readers EVERYTHING?
Readers are the ones who grow your blog. They comment, share, discuss your stuff while you’re not blogging at all. I don’t even mean readers, random visitors can do this too if you present things the right way! If that’s not a little bit exciting, then stop blogging now.
Okay, don’t do that.
What you should do is sign up today for clear, concise blog answers and an impressive eBook that could very well change your blog for the better.
