Now to the main discussion, how to share great Blog posts
Focus on headlines
Headlines that are astonishing draw an audience to your blog post. Staggering headlines are high catching, for example, “Atiku vows to destroy Buhari head to head in Election”, we know a figure of speech was involved. That kind of headline will catch the attention of anyone scrolling on social media platforms that I shared my post to.
Atiku didn’t say he will destroy Buhari head to head, maybe he only said he will win the election in every corner which is quite similar to the headline.
Create contents that is quotable
I discussed quoted contents above and I said it is allowed, well here, you are not the one copying another blog’s content to quote on your blog, someone will be copying yours.
Someone doing this on their blog will create a backlink to your original post as they will reference your site with the link as the original content as I explained above.
To do this, your goal must be to create a content which is worth quoted but this doesn’t happen at all times. Your content must also be original by 100%.
Interlink your blog posts
Interlinking your own blog post means linking some other post to the current post you just worked on or shared. Still don’t get it right? ok, lets take it this way.
If you have finished writing your blog post, add links below to another related post as I do on every blog post you read here, or if you write something similar to what you already have on your site as you were writing, you can reference it by embedding the link in the word.
This helps in making your readers stay and spend more time on your blog giving you a good bounce rate and session spent.
