Keep Readers Interest Alive

Show them what you’ve got! Show your best articles on your home page. You may use a sticky post feature or may install a beautiful content slider on top of all the posts to show the best of your writing skills.

Similarly inside the posts you can use “Related Posts” plugin which shows the related articles at the end of the each post which surely interest the readers. Linkwithin is another popular widget that shows the related post with thumbnails and can be installed in seconds in any type of site or blog.

You can consider installing a “Most Viewed” or “Most Popular Articles” widget in the sidebar to show your most clicked articles. This surely forces a reader to click and read your best content and this has been experimented with very positive results increasing pageviews.

Too much text is another reason that your readers leaves the page quickly. If an article is too lengthy then divide it in parts or make a series of articles.

If you’re internally linking two of your articles then make sure you crosslink them. Which means link of Post 1 into Post 2 and vice versa. This creates cross links and a reader landing any of the posts would see link to the other one and in this way both of the articles get read.
