We all want more engagement on our blog posts. I mean traffic numbers are nice, but when no one comments or shares your posts, you just feel so alone. (Is anyone listening to me!?)
User interaction is the soul of a blog. Not only does it help build your confidence, but it could help turn your blog into a cash cow.
Here are 26 ways to bring life to your blog.
1. Post a lot. When it comes down to it, it’s a numbers game. The more posts, the more chances for engagement. Cover a broad base of topics with varying degrees of depth. Sometimes a casual article with no depth works as a great gateway to more detailed articles.
2. Write titles for readers. Before you can get users engaging with your posts, you need to get them to read them. To do that, you need a catchy title they’ll click in the search results. This is why the sometimes controversial “link bait titles” can be so effective.
3. Optimize titles for Google and other search engines. Of course, to get your posts onto the search results where they’ll be seen, you need to optimize them for search engines like Google and Bing. Keep them short enough they aren’t truncated, include a topic phrase and be specific.
