A simple way of instantly boosting traffic from Hugh here… Really useful, and he was kind enough to give me a mention!
Here’s a little trick that will instantly get more traffic to your blog if, like me, you prefer to get notification emails whenever a blog you follow publishes a new post.
- Go to your blog’s dashboard
- Click on ‘Settings’
- Click on ‘Reading’
- Next to ‘For each article in a feed, show’ click the ‘Summary’ box.
- Click on ‘Save Changes’ at the bottom of the page
Now, whenever you publish a new post, instead of the whole post being visible on the email (which followers can read without visiting your blog), they will need to click on the link in the email to be able to view and read the whole post on your blog. This will register as a new view in your blog stats.
Here’s an example of an email I get from WordPress when Suzie, at Suzie Speaks, publishes a new blog post. She already uses the above method.
