Earlier this year, I wrote a blog entitled, "Do This One Thing And Increase Pageviews Immediately." Within this post, I talk about using your analytics to identify popular articles. Then, using those entries to bring attention to related, and often underexposed, posts.
Today, with the release of Google's Real-Time Blogger Stats, site owners can take advantage of reports to increase pageviews right now.
How Does It Work?
By viewing the Now or Day tabs under Stats, you can determine the most popular posts. Assuming those popular posts will continue to receive hits, you can help direct traffic from those pages to lessor known, and often older, posts.
How? You ask. This is done by creating a Related Post header on the page, typically near the bottom. Add a few interesting titles and link them.
Within minutes, you should notice the traffic leaving one page and ending up on another. This easy tip helps to decrease your site's bounce rate as well as increase pageviews.
I hope this tip is helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions by leaving them in the comment section below.
