Besides that, there are 5 things that I personally think are extremely important when it comes to your blog posts. Continue reading tho find out what they are!
5 Things To Always Include In Your Blog Posts
Links to your social media
Make sure all your posts contain links to your social media. The best place to put them is at the end of the post, as I do in my posts (scroll down and you’ll see all my links). this way, people will have easier access to all your platforms and, most likely, will follow you.
On the other side, make sure to also link your blog on your social media, so that people who follow you can have immediate access to your blog.
This is very important. A meta description is a little text that appears below the link to your blog when you search on a browser like Google.
It is also the text that appears below your pins on Pinterest. (that is, if you enabled rich pins for your blog. It is a very easy thing to do and there are tons of tutorials on how to do it online.)
That little description will attract more people to your blog and, therefore increase your pageviews/viewers.
Every time you link something in your blog post, whether it is another blog post or a link to a product, make sure the link is actually working. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read posts and clicked a link only to find out it wasn’t working.
Ask your readers questions. Have they tried the product you’ve just bought? Did they like it? What do they think about this certain topic? This will bring your blogpost engagement up, believe me.
Tags are extremely important, especially now that Bloglovin’ started to include them on their platform. Tags are great to categorize your posts within your blog, so people can easily access all blog posts you’ve written about a certain topic, but now they are a great way to get more exposure on Bloglovin’.
If you’re writing a post about, let’s say, an Urban Decay product, make sure you use the tag ‘Urban Decay’ and well as the name of the product
People who look for this tag on Bloglovin’ will find your post and most certainly read it.
