The Importance Of Reviewing Your Content
Today I devoted myself to reviewing my own website. You might wonder why I would bother doing that but theres a very clear answer to it which will make a huge difference in the long run.
If you want to get targeted traffic to your website, you should consider
writing valuable content. You might start off, by simply writing something that came to your mind and posting it. I encourage you to self review work you created, so that same post a few days later. Try to keep organizing your work to avoid a lot of effort and hassle later on as you review your work.
On this website I try to stay as personal as possible so that you can understand my thought process. Simultaneously I try to make it the best possible blog I can produce. So last night I was thinking, I should improve my content.
How To Spot Defaults
So when do we know that our blog or website needs improvement? If you ask me there is always place and time for improvements in whatever we do. No one is perfect and no one will ever be.
Personally I like to ask the people on Wealthy affiliate to have a read through my website when I feel helpless. There’s always someone to help or a relevant article, blog, training or course dedicated to my questions there.
Tips To Improve Your Content
Here are some of the main things I’ve been taught and figured out myself, to make a website more readable and interesting.
- Try to have small paragraphs
- Include Headers to give an overview
- Stay relevant within your topic
- Don’t use odd coloring (black on white usually works easiest on the eyes)
- Use imagery – Everyone loves a good picture
- Be yourself and don’t use hard language
The last point is quite important I find. If I read an analytical text using big formal words I have to research on a dictionary in order to make sense of the text, I quickly lose interest.
I’d rather read a text that comes across as if someone would be talking to me personally.
It’s Never Too Late
My advice is to always review your content. I know I’ve said it in the beginning but it is truly an important task. I hate going back on things myself but the truth is, the hardest bit is done the first time where you write out your content.
The beauty of going back to older posts is that you won’t remember the details you’ve written so you can see it from a different perspective and possibly find a lot of errors to remove. Add a few visuals here and there, maybe a nice keyword and you’re done.
I hope you found this article useful and if you’ve made it all the way to the bottom, please leave a comment and share your thoughts with me 🙂
