What is wrong with me?!?I wrote such a good article, but no one is reading it! It was all about how keywords in blog posts could make your content appear higher on Google. Why isn’t anyone reading my posts..(In other words) – What makes a good blog article? How can I write better ones that more people will be interested in?
These are example questions of what we will be answering in today’s post. If your struggling to come up with answers on how to write better articles, this post may benefit you.
A good blog article starts with a catchy title. A title that starts with something like, “The Stealthy Apple Secret” is much better than “Apple’s Business Plan. By doing this, it makes the reader want to see what is so stealthy about Apple and henceforth, they will read the first paragraph or entire article! The more interesting you make a title, the more readers you will receive.
Nexts comes a solid first paragraph. If you are reading this, you probably saw the “Damn!” at the top of the header paragraph. It is a perfect example of a way to catch your reader’s attention. Another technique to keep the reader interested for the rest of the article is to bold and italicize your font to make the reader want to see why it is like that.
Then after you have an interested reader, you can pretty much say what you wish. The “Read More” link is a way to let the reader skim over your articles to see if they find something appealing which is a good strategy for blogs that post more than one time per day.
For your concluding sentence, sum up what you have said. Here is a checklist on how to make a flawless article:
- Appealing Title (Use uncommon words to catch readers attention)
- Interesting Header Paragraph (Keep the reader entertained enough to read the rest)
- Content (Say what comes to mind, you have a reader that wants to read your content)
- Concluding paragraph (Sum it up and ask a question to encourage Blogger/Reader comments and conversations)
