This blog post aims to share the importance of re-writing your blog to stay relevant on certain topics and increase views. The blog post is intended to help new bloggers understand how professional content writers enhance the title of their post, add key points that make them stand out, and more.
A million content writers are telling you what a blog is about. Depending on your personal writing goals, you might have already encountered the basics: how to create a blog for your niche/specialty, how to make money from blogging using your niche/specialty, and more. People often do not tell you that they have probably written their posts numerous times to make it clear to readers and ensure that all gaps are addressed and fixed.
Blog content is “something that is to be expressed through some medium, through speech, via writing or any of various arts.” This post was written to acknowledge some, not all, techniques that successful bloggers use to ensure readers come to their blog, that their writing is up to par, and more.
Bloggers adjust their headlines
Per Orbit Media, bloggers write lots of headlines before choosing one. These bloggers are far more likely to report successful ranking on sites, and if you are utilizing any analytic tool, you should see yourself tanking up when altering your headlines.
Bloggers are adding research
There are two kinds of content programs: those that are the primary source for original data and those that only cite data from other sources. More bloggers tell us that they are conducting original research every year and adding it to their content mix at least once a year. It’s a big trend. In 2020, bloggers who conduct and publish original research were 32% more likely to report “strong results” from their content than the benchmark.
Bloggers need to check their analytics
it isn’t easy to know if you are a good blogger because some people based their success on the quality of the posts they write, while some see success based on how many followers they have, and some will measure success by actively posting. I personally measure success by how many people are visiting my blog per month.
Bloggers go back and update old content.
Bloggers who go back and update old content are more than twice as likely to report “strong results.” When I read articles, I tend to look at the age of the posts because things change. I cannot talk to you about how amazing the Disney Submarine Voyage is because it implies that the ride is still active when it closed permanently in 1998. I have come to find that older blog posts capture the sea’s search criteria and have such useful information that they appear as the top research results. With that said, research supports the same realization I am about to make; you do not need 1000 articles; you need 100 great articles. Once you discovered the amazing effectiveness of updating post content, you will see the benefit of writing less. Per articles on this matter, the literature shows that one-fifth of my “new” articles are rewritten/re-used articles from older posts.
Why this topic was important for me to research
I have researched this topic extensively because I have not had to work or attend school over the holiday break. I normally post Mondays and Fridays, and while having time off, I began posting every day to see what it would be like to be a full-time blogger. I was surprised that my visitor count did not increase. I consider visits “success,” as I am data-driven and report out monthly views. Like anything, it takes time.
