Bloggers Do You Know These Secrets!  15 Secrets About Your Blog Page!

(My IWSG Post for October 2014)

Last updated on October 1, 2017

I am sure many bloggers do not know most of these secrets about their own blogs!  I mean, I am talking about some of the hidden facts about our own blogs which we quite often do not notice or do not know!

Read these facts and some suggestions along with it…


1.  New Bloggers.

It is estimated that 80% visits in your blog are new, especially if you build an email list and a regular activity on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Digg, linkdIn, Pinterest etc.

2.  Posting Regularly

   If you are a regular blogger and post quite often, say daily or weekly twice or thrice, there is every chance to get your traffic 5 times more than the regular one.

             Many bloggers do not know any of these secrets about their own blogs! Check out @ #philipscom Click To Tweet

3 Getting More Traffic

    It is estimated that when you reach a total of 50+ posts your blog traffic increases by 53% it increases by 3 times after you complete 100 posts and 4.5 times after 200 posts. So continue to write worth reading useful content.

4.  The length of Your Content

    There is a slight confusion among bloggers about the needed length of the content.  Is a long content or a shorter one will fetch more accessibility among readers?   The recent statistics say that there is a good chance to get more backlinks if it’s a longer one. A post of 1300 or above words content will fetch more backlinks and thus more traffic than a shorter one.  Of course, there is an exception to this, in this busy world who is having time to go deep into a long article! In a way that is true, but the experts say the reality is on the other side. Yes, the fact is that if a long article filled with a lot of information with well-connected links will surely be read and preserved or bookmarked by many.  

5.  Eye Capturing Images

It is another factor that a blog post with more images will get attracted by the general readers and also get more backlinks.  This includes screenshots, graphs, infographics, cartoons, artworks, and various other attractive pictures in your blog post.

6. Sharing Your Content Regularly

   Your social media shares matter a lot.  It is estimated that 41.6% people measure the social influence by counting your post’s social sharing by others. Note that your page should have a share button which helps to reach to different social sites. 

7.  A Good Looking Page

   Another important factor to note is about your blog page’s look.  If it is adorned with some lovely images along with your quality contents it will easily get the attention of the browsers.  But at the same time, If your visitor wants to stay back on your page it must carry some solid, quality worth reading material. Otherwise, all our efforts will go waste and no pictures can do any wonder! 


If our visitors do not find any interest in our contents there is a less chance of their visit again or share. So make it a point to fill your pages with quality contents. Though sometimes it may be a bit difficult task, a bit of research and hard work will pay the bill.

8.  Content Posting Days 

   This is yet another unknown thing to many that your posts on Mondays get more visibility and traffic than other days.  Notice the difference between the post published on Mondays and other weekly days. Of course, there is an exception to this too, this fact solely depends on the time zone which you are in and the people or the most readers connected from which zone etc.  Mostly if you are connected with the western countries surely the weekend days are a less or dull activity days.  Also, another fact found out recently is that:  If you publish the post on Thursdays there is a good chance to get more social shares.   So apart from Mondays, Thursdays too, carry weight!  So make it a point to not to miss Mondays and Thursdays.

10.  Social Media Sharing And Accepting New Friends

   Your social media sharing of fellow bloggers posts will help you to get the attention of fellow bloggers and surely others too share your posts on their social sites and eventually that fetch you more traffic. Here we need to be more careful while selecting or accepting new friends.  Try to stick with the friends who are interested in your niche, products or services.  Accept only such related requests on a social site or else later you may force to delete others.  If you accept all your friend requests you may sometimes land in trouble without any response and at a later stage, you need to do a complete purge of such friends.  And note that this is a time-consuming process and I did this lately with my all three major social media accounts.  I bet it’s a cumbersome process and am sure in the process you may even lose some valuable friends too. And then again to go with an explanation or accepting new request etc.  To avoid these processes select your friends wisely.  That will surely give a good share and traffic to your pages.

11.  Posting Quality Contents

   It is observed that more contents about a product or company will fetch the attention of more people. More than 70% people’s attention will get to a quality content than from an attractive ad.  Notice that ads will fetch less but quality contents will fetch more.  So concentrate on contents which give more value to their time and money.
12.  Posting Regularly
    Post your blog post regularly on a regular basis that will fetch more leads, it is found that it generates 4 times more leads than a weekly or a monthly post.  So this will encourage people to post on every day :-) but the problem is that when the frequency increases there is every chance to miss the quality.  This is very important to be noted while doing the most frequent posts.

13.  Visiting Fellow Bloggers Pages

   Visit a minimum of 5 to 8 blog pages, if possible more on a daily basis.   At the same time make a good rapport with them by commenting constructive and meaningful comments relevant to the subjects.   Eventually, that leads to a new relationship with new writers and get acquainted with them well. This surely will increase your knowledge, readability, and status.

14.  Building Relationship With Fellow Bloggers

    Build or develop a good relationship with fellow bloggers by visiting their pages and by interacting with feedback through comment columns and via social media contacts.  Though some may not respond at the initial stage if you continue visiting and commenting that will pave the way to begin a good relationship.   Eventually, that will fetch many benefits in the long run in relation to your blogging journey.  

There are a good number of outstanding personalities in the blogging world who emphasize on this subject.   
Prominent among them are Erik Emanuelli, Atish Ranjan,
 Harleena Singh, Mi Muba, Chery Schmidt, and many others.  
There is no doubt the list of such personalities is a big one and space constrain me to accommodate all of them in this post. 
Few of such prominent ones are mentioned below. May their tribe increase! :-)

If you are a blogger and a regular visitor to these pages you will very well understand the importance of rapport between fellow bloggers.

  15. Hi Phillip,

    Very helpful blogging tips there!

    Interesting to note about the length of blog post. At one time the Yoast SEO plugin recommended 300 word posts which I always thought was rather short (and did longer posts). I see that now they are recommending 900 word posts!
