Ideas to increase readership

Last night I attended the Sarawak bloggers talk: More than a blog.

I will now share with you some of the tips I think is important in blogging.

1. Self regulation- This means that you restrict yourself from bashing others and make negativity in the post to a more positive way.
2. Constant updates- Your reader will want to read your blog if you update your blog =)
3. Read your site analysis:
  • Find out where your readers are from: Blog about topics that interest them and yourself.
  • Find out when is the prime time readers visit your blog: therefore update your blog at that time// Suggested update time if your readers are working class: 1pm, 4pm or 9pm and weekdays
These tips are from Cyril and Willie

Suggested tips to try to increase blog readership
  1. Spend 1 hour to read other blogger's work of art blogs. Or just 3 blogs a day. =)
  2. Leave comment just to show that you are there and read his/her blog. This can make that blogger happier =) 
  3. Choose your title wisely. Do Google keywords from your blog title and if you see yourself at number 1 spot in the search result, then keep that title! 
  4. Get your own domain! Reason being that search engine prioritize .com sites. FYI, I'll get one real soon =P 
  5. i) Organize event ii) Sponsor eventiii) Organize contest iv) Award good readers with small gifts If you are asking for my comment, I would say you do this only if you have the ability to =) 
  6.  Check the health of the topics that you blogged. Try not to blog on unpopular topics. 
  7. Have magazine style template: This is to let your readers choose what to read// Freedom of choice! =) 
Will update another post on Photojournalism soon by Alvin Leong

  1. Thanks for coming =)

    Anyway, I'd suggest you use your own name for your .com because I see a lot of people being 'tired' of domain names which are not their own name. If you change domain, you loose alot.. thats bad..
