B.S.I. Investigation - Adventures in Baby Fat

B.S.I. Investigation - Adventures in Baby Fat

Tip One: I would highly recommend showing at least five posts on the front page. Keeping your blog limited to one causes your visitors to have to click more to dig deeper for your content. I don’t believe putting all your posts on the front page is beneficial, but five is a nice number to go with.

Tip Two: Try a different template or play with the colors a bit. Dark colors tend to detour visitors unless of course your content is “dark” then dark is good.

Tip Three: Use the archive widgets. Get your content out there so that your readers can scan through to see if there’s something they want to check in on. Your blog is very limiting to the visitor who is there for a matter of seconds, there’s very little to lock them in and keep them there.

Tip Four: Use your Adsense Widgets to get your ads out there. If you want to make money with your blog, you can’t earn if the ads aren’t there. Play with the template and move the ads around. That’s the beauty of the new blogger. There is lots of room to play.

Tip Five: Get an email link in place so that visitors can contact you. Allowing them the option to contact you with questions over a post is key in letting people know you’re real.

As with all other reviews, if anyone else has anything to ad, please feel free.
