How To Increase PageViews - A Complete Guide

Increasing Page Views - Complete Guide

Experienced bloggers are always cribbing about how their page views haven’t seen a major increase for a while. Where could the problem lie? Is it in their content? Or have they fallen behind on the technical part of blogging?
It’s both. However, the latter is the main reason why a number of pages don’t get the views they deserve. Knowing how to bump up your page views and decrease your bounce rate is crucial to the success of your blog or site.

Before we jump into a few interesting tips, here are two definitions that you should know.

Bounce rate: This is the number of people who enter your site but leave (or bounce) before visiting any of the other pages. The visitor simply views the page he/she is on and then decides to move on. A high bounce rate is not good news.
Page view: It is the number of hits a particular page receives. It is a request to load one page that a user would like to check out; it could be through a link available on the present page or just another section. A higher page view is great news for a blogger or site owner.

Here are a few tips that will help improve your page view throughout your site or blog.

Interlinking posts and pages: 

If you have a lot of content on your blog or site, then interlinking posts can really help improve page views. For instance, if you’re writing an article about Pinterest’ latest feature “secret boards”, then you should consider adding a link to your previous articles about ‘Pinning tips’ or ‘Pinterest board ideas’. This will give readers the opportunity to read everything they need to know on the topic - a perfect tip to get your page views rolling.

Post excerpts are the best: 

When visitors visit your blog or site, they should not be greeted by one gigantic post that takes up the entire first page. Always arrange your posts in such a way that visitors only see a small portion of it. This way you can fit more posts on one page, thus giving readers a wider choice. This helps improve the page views of numerous pages over a period. It also helps improve the load time, offering a better user experience.

Using the search function: 

Most blogs have a search option for users to find what they’re looking for. This is a great way of improving impressions of different pages. When you have a lot of content, visitors can search for a particular term and the search bar will pull up related posts.

Interact whenever possible: 

The best blogs and sites out there are always having conversations with their visitors. This helps build a strong relationship between the two and creates a sort of a following. The comment section of your blog is where you can ask questions or respond to reader comments. An interactive blog or site will do wonders for page hits.

THE RIGHT CONTENT: 

Excuse the use of Caps, but this cannot be stressed enough. Without quality content, you might as well pack up and leave. Find another career if your blog or site has content that is stale and ordinary. Fresh, interesting, and relevant content is the only way to attract visitors and solidify your page impressions. You need to give the reader something that he/she finds useful and enjoyable at the same time.

Google AdSense has also worked wonders for many blogs that have a good following. Kicking off with the aforementioned points should help you in more ways than one. Retaining visitors is not easy, and you should do everything you can to make them stay.
