OK, so this was a tip I discovered a while back, but now it’s becoming more and more beneficial for me in terms of blog views. By this, I mean writing about current affairs.
Now I understand not all of my fellow bloggers are budding journalists like myself, and don’t have the same kind of “motif” on their blog (mine being my life, writing, interviews and occasional shows I like), but we can all at least try to tie in what we write about with a current affair.
For example, after checking my stats yesterday of All-Time, aside from my Homepage and About page being first and second respectively, the next three were a post about Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Sub Focus’ single Endorphins.
Some of my views come from search engines as well, the logic of course being that when news is announced, most turn to search engines to find out as much information as possible. Using the Doctor Who example, some of us are desperate for spoilers about the 50th Anniversary episode. This is why I have put a lot of Doctor Who posts up recently, and of course, these have lead to me getting a lot of blog views, primarily because of current affairs and Google’s search engine.
So just a note today really, try and tie your blog’s theme in with a current affair, and watch the stats grow. Also, another note, I’m not a blog expert, but it’s a handy tip I’ve noticed. Feel free to use it!
