1. Always link to an OLD “Relevant” Post

This also helps in creating more related content on your blog, and a reader can learn more about a topic. If you have low page views because of a few contents that is missing a follow-up article, a good idea would be writing more content related to the topic.

  3. Kundan Raj Bhattarai

    Thanks for the post. I was missing a very important tip and that is to have related link in my blog post. I realized myself you can’t stop yourself to click the link if you have a related post link with a compelling title. It makes the blog more engaged

  4. david

    Thanks for telling me about the plugin, that sounds like a really good idea.

  5. hrmehrotra

    i am using most of the methods but still my page views are low…..any suggestion?

  6. Asif Billah

    When the initial stage of blogging I thought, if the blog get more blog posts, traffic will increase and after realize the facts that volume of posts not required for traffic.
    Quality always win in this case that readers stay long time on blogs and surf more contents. When the readers stay long time, we can improve the Page views I strongly believe.

  7. Mr.X

    Points number 4 and 5 may not be the best advice to follow. Every link on a particular page takes away the pagerank, and it’s best to keep the links to minimum in my opinion on the home page.

  8. Naren Kumar

    Yet Another Related Posts is a good plugin for showing related post. I tried in my blog. after install this plugin bounce rate start getting decrease. but @Harsh Agrawal can suggest how to show more relevant post using this plugin.

  9. Taswir Haider

    I am using MaxCDN for the last couple of weeks and so far it has improved the site speed significantly. Cool ideas Anurag.

    If I am not wrong this is one of the millions of the posts giving same tips and I guess every blogger is aware of them. Anyways I still liked your way of presenting these tips.
    The only question I have here is that ‘applying a paid theme instead of a free theme makes a difference in pageviews?’
    Please stick to the point ‘FREE THEME OR PAID THEME’ answering the question.

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      There is no difference…till the time free theme offers all the important features:
      Faster laading
      Clean design
      Typography and other design factors..

      Some time you will not find these features in Premium themes too (Some time they compromise user experience for better design)… So it all depends on what design you it free or paid…. The whole aim of your theme is to give a great user experience… An example could be seen on (Simple and elegant)…

      1. Babita tomar

        Well, in my opinion simplicity is the best thing. If we see problogger, labnol and many more famous sites then we can notice that these sites are having simple design but having lots of good and quality contents. Well i am agree with Harsh that if a free theme provides all things to its visitors then it will work for sure. I like this article.

      2. vivek Kumar

        Totally agree with Harsh, there is no special difference between paid and free themes.

    2. ravi kumar

      You can use “Suffusion theme” for your wordPress blog.It is 100% free and has premium like features.

    Hi Anurag,

    Giving relevant link to some old post and using YARP is really maximizes chances of pagviews.To much of plugins and pop ups used for showing related post irritate readers so i think if these things are done nicely and neatly than it enough to maximize the page views.

    Thank You

    Another way to reduce the bounce rate is to structure blog in a headers and subheaders form. Blogger has an option to give headers, subheaders etc. also internal linking is a good way and also external linking. Mind it, it must be open in a new window. Incorporating videos and other interactive features inside the blog can be helpful.

    Nice article. But everything is wordpress here , what about people who use blogger as their CMS platform.

  13. raman bathina

    Nice post anurag.what you said in 6 ways are definitely helpful but in those ways mainly focus on wordpress users only,what about bloggers who use custom domain like me.

  14. Shrinivas
