Last updated on June 1, 2017
Yes, unless there is no viewers, readers or visitors, what is the use of creating blogs! This may be one of the reasons why many do not enter into this field, the fear of not getting enough audience or visitors. Even the professional bloggers too faced this fear in their initial time of blogging. Here are 6 essential tips for bloggers to look into or follow to get more visitors to their blog space.
Just by creating something for the page and press the Publish button will not do any miracle of getting more page views of visitors to your page.
The first and foremost part is that you need to make your blog more attractive to the audience.
When I say attractive it does not mean the look or beauty of the blog, instead, it should be adorable by the readers. Even if the look of the page is not that attractive it does not matter in the initial stage, the crux of the fact is that readers could get some valuable or useful information by visiting your page.
Select a good subject to discuss with, that is, by discussing one may get some valuable points out of it. Controversial current subjects always attract more visitors, for example, now when the elections are going to conduct in different states of India, already some states voting is finished and by 30th of this month other states too will complete the election process, writing something on it which people like to hear or discuss with. So think of some controversy between politicians on different political issues.
Though politics is not a new subject and tons of things are writing on it day in and day out, but you can think of some unique idea with the existing issues that will surely get attracted by the readers, though some may not like to read about politics or political issues your unique presentation will get attention.
The First And Foremost Essential Tip Is Speed:
If our blog page is filled with a number of gadgets with all kinds of moving objects or pop ups your page will take a lot of time to open. Check out these 6 essential tips for bloggers. Some practical tips necessary for all bloggers that our computer and its speed may not be like other persons’. They may be having a low-speed system or an old system. If our page is filled with many graphic pics and other gadgets it takes a lot of time to open. Of course, this is applicable to our blog banner too.
In the initial stage I used to embed all kinds of stuff in my blog’s sidebar and I received many personal emails and phone calls from my well-wishers and readers saying: “your page is taking lot of time to open, I got surprised at it, since I do not know anything of its technical side, then I contacted one of my blog friends and mentors, he said, ‘uncle one of the reason may be these gadgets you keep in your sidebar, immediately I removed most of them and kept only very few which is very necessary. Indeed that increased my system speed as well my readers’ problem also solved. Opening my page on their computer is fixed. So make sure to remove all unwanted stuff from the sidebar of your page.
Another Need Of The Hour Is An Eye Capturing Headline:
Create an attractive and eye capturing headline for your post. This is an essential tip to catch the attention of our audience.
A recent survey says that only one out of the five will read beyond the headline. So think on this while make a caption/headline to your post.
Though I mentioned in the initial stage quality of the content is important than its look, I still hold on to that but at the same time if you have a catchy eye capturing design it is well and good and most people look for those attractive look. No doubt these days’ people are more visual. So make it attractive, for a beginner, it may be a difficult task but you can seek help from your fellow bloggers. Though all are busy in their own field your request may be attended by someone somewhere and sometimes you need to shell out few bugs for this purpose, in my opinion, that may not be a loss in the long run.Create an attractive and eye capturing headline for your post.

A lovely picture along with your post is a great attraction to many. A recent research or finding says that “a good picture is seen by everyone, it is said that people see images sixty thousand times faster than a text. There are plenty of free pictures available in the ocean of World Wide Web. You can download it and with a due credit line, you can use it in your blog posts. Shutterstock is one of the top most free picture providers in this field. Notice that there are some pictures even in Shutterstock which are not for free use, such pictures are marked with a watermark in the picture and one should not download such pics and use it. Only when you pay for it, they will remove the watermark and give it to you for use.
This is very important to note when you use pictures from the net, otherwise, it will be punishable under the copyright act. You can also use your online friend’s photographs if they give permission to use it. You can give a credit line like Picture Courtesy, or Image Credit: like the one, I posted above.
Here is one such website which provides free images for its users. Check out one such page here: PixaOcean
While using such images do not forget to give image credits to the original page. This type of acknowledgment is very, essential as per the Copyright Act. If they do not have a blog or web you can use their FB or Twitter or any other social sites links with their permission.If they do not have a blog or web you can use their FB or Twitter or any other social sites links with their permission.

Next Essential Tip Is To Pay Visit To Other Fellow Bloggers Pages:
We want others to visit our page and comment, but are you visiting others pages? Please ask yourself, if you are not doing it for others how can you expect the same from others! That is the secret and need of the hour. In this busy world, we all are busy in our own respective areas, and do not find time to visit others’ page! In such situation how can we expect others to visit our page? Whatever it is, the ultimate solution is “Give and take” policy, even in the midst of our hectic schedule set apart some time to visit other fellow bloggers’ pages read and air a constructive opinion, suggestion etc in the form of a comment, I am sure it will surely work and you get a pay back visit and a comment . 🙂
Next Need Of The Hour Is To Post Constructive Comments On Fellow Bloggers Pages:
Make sure that your comment box should be free from hassles. Make it easy for others to post their comments without much difficulty. Some bloggers’ comment box if we see, it’s very difficult to post comments since it is protected by some verification codes etc. sometimes these codes are very tough to recognize and type as it is so sometimes we need to try several times, and in such case your readers will not take patience to post again or visit again.
Try to respond to each comment you receive in your inbox, and if possible pay a visit to their page and post a feedback. This will surely increase your status and people get a feeling that you care.
Next Need Of The Hour Is To Visit Influencers Blog Pages:
Select such personalities’ page, read and study their strategy and air your views doubts etc., Most probably you may get a reply comment. I am sure though they are very busy people, if your comments, doubts are on a positive and on a constructive way they will find time to answer to your comments.
Here I can suggest two names and their pages: (though there are many bloggers to suggest, at this time I am mentioning only two) Adrienne Smith and Harleena Singh: These two bloggers are professionals in their area and of course they are busy people too, but still they find time to attend to your comments and doubts. Their pages are very educative ones and a must read to any blogger (A newbie or even a veteran). You can pick up a lot of lessons from their blogging!!
Yes, if you are a blogger these are a must visit pages.
I would like to hear from you, your opinion, suggestions, Your likes, dislikes if any in the comment box.
May you all have a wonderful time of blogging interactions ahead!
