Blogging is like hunting, you’re either good and skillful at it or you’re not. If you’re struggling as blogger, and you’ve been trying so hard to convert traffic to your posts and it’s not working…relax, i got you covered.
Before i proceed, something just popped into my head. 🤭 *clears throat* alright here we go, “I heard you’re into eggs, that’s cool, you can call me eggzy.” 😂😂😂😂🤭 That sounded funny in my head, i know it’s a lame pick-up line, I just had to share it with y’all.
Don’t mind me, I just wanted to cheer you up as we proceed. 💃🍹
Alright, let’s focus.😊
Things That Kill Your Blog Posts Every Time.
1. Confusing Headlines:
The goal of every headline is to freeze every audience and draw them to the post. Just like fishing, you attract the fish by using a worm or something else to capture it’s attention before using the hook to grab it and place it in your net.
You can’t capture the mind of any audience if you use confusing headlines.
Examples Of A Confusing Headline:
1. Windy Tuesday’s are bad for the lungs. 😡
2. Drinking water daily makes you obese. Hmm, so confusing right? Any blog who publishes a post on this particular topic needs to be closed down, and the owner needs to be taken to the psychiatrist ward ASAP!
Examples Of Eye-catching Headlines:
1. Health benefits of eating berries.🍇
2. How to become a power house in the entertainment industry.
3. Powerful SEO trends to use if you want a high ranking.
4. How to monetize your blog in a week.
As you can see above, headlines are of different qualities. The best ones always attract the right audience.
2. Clunky URLs:
Clunky URLs are URLs that are ugly, awkward and badly done. You have to include recognizable words in your URL so as not to confuse your audience, disorganize your post and make it difficult for them to interact with your post properly.
Example of a clunky URL: 👇
Plagiarism is the use of someone’s work, ideas or expression as one’s own without giving credit.
Plagiarism destroys the authenticity of a blog post. When a blogger plagiarizes another bloggers work it will show, from the way the plagiarizer writes, you’ll definitely know he/she has no clue about what that topic is all about.
The more plagiarized post one publishes, the more one loses audience rapidly.
To avoid plagiarism, one has to consistently write, and read books so as to improve his or her writing skills. Reading books will broaden ones mentality and will improve ones capability to write professionally.
4. Not Publishing Posts Regularly:
Publishing less than one post a month is not healthy for your blog, and that’s the reason why you don’t experience growth and no even bothers to read any new post you publish.
We all have busy schedules, but that shouldn’t stop you from publishing more contents on your blog. Create out time out of your very busy schedule to at least publish 10 contents per month.
The less you post, the less chance your newest post can reach any potential audience. Your traffic eventually slows and dies when you stop posting.
5. Writing About Posts That Doesn’t Benefit Anyone:
Writing about posts that no one can relate to, benefit from, or learn from is one the factors that contributes to killing your blog posts.
People are regularly searching for educative contents, and contents that provide solutions. If your blog doesn’t offer these kind of contents, you’ll definitely lose audience, that’s for sure.
