Unless you know how to use Google Analytics (which I recommend learning at some point), you probably have no clue there was even such a thing called a bounce rate. A bounce rate is the amount of visitors who navigate away from your blog after viewing only one page. High bounce rates are bad and the average for a good blog is around 65%. I have come across some blogs where the loading time is horrendous and this is a huge aspect for your bounce rate. If it takes a long time to load all of your extravagant content, people are going to hit the back button faster than you can say “no, don’t leave!”, so make sure you have a fast loading time! Another tip is to not have all your content on one page (aka the home page). Your home page can have all of your most recent posts with a small snippet from the post, but incorporate a “continue reading” button, which will direct the visitor to a new page with the entire post. There are infinite way to lower your bounce rate so I recommend checking out this article.
#5 Search Description on Your Posts AKA Meta Description!
On both Blogger and WordPress it is super easy to add a quick search description to your blog posts (it is called a Meta Description on WordPress). Your search description should contain keywords that are present throughout your post, use action-oriented language, keep under 155 characters, and be specific/relevant. This will help Google find your specific posts so make sure your description it is good!!
I hope some of these tips help all you soon to be SEO experts!
