Wahoo!! Today is day 5 of my blogging course Branding And Growth: Make the Most of Your Archives which means I’m 1/2 way done. Yeah!!🙂🙂🤗🤗
Integrate a feature to draw traffic to your older content, like a widget, list of related posts, or a “Best of” page. A few ways this can be done is:
- A go-to page compiling your best posts is the simplest way to get readers to older content (or add some links to your About page).
- When writing new posts, refer to past pieces with well placed links. Readers are always engaged with your post, so so pointing them to other content draws them deeper into your blog.
- The Related Posts Feature automatically adds links to other posts your readers might like at the bottom of each post.
- Widgets like Top Posts and Pages, Categories, and Archive Widgets Add a variety of navigation to your sidebar(mine is in the footer).
What I Did:
I put some links across the header at the top of my page. The links are: Home, A Sample Of Crystal’s Photo-Blogging, About And Contact Page. I also have in my footer Top Posts And Pages, Archives: Top Archive Posts and I even have a calendar entitled Crystal’s Calendar. Personally I think I did pretty good. I would love to hear what you think and please do read some older posts.
