No Idea! .. Bounce Rate

Today I am writing this blog Because I know 90% beginners are facing the same problem. They are writing fresh content every day but the bounce rate is still high.

It can be hard to reading from a screen.If you are not using right techniques.

earlier, I was also facing the same problem but after reading many blogs of content writing I came to know that if any writer will use these 5 tips in their writing then blog or article can be a bomb.

But How?..

If you want your readers to read your entire blog post, you should make sure your post is easy to read. Posts should be nice and easy to read.

You will find the result in more returning visitors, a higher conversion rate and bounce rate will be around 25% within a month.

Following five tips will help you that how to improve the readability of your articles and decrease bounce rate.

Focus on your audience!

Important advice: Make sure your text isn’t too difficult to understand for the audience you’re writing for. If you write about tuition and focus on students, your text should be easy to read.

But, if your audience consists of scientists with a Ph.D., your text could be much more challenging and still be suitable.

Tip No 1: Clear Paragraphs

Make sure to write clear paragraphs. For a blog post or articles, I would advise you always to start your paragraph with the most important sentence means what your audience want to hear from you.

Then elaborate on that sentence. This is a way that your reader will be able to understand the most relevant content from your article or blog, Just by reading the first sentence of your paragraphs.

Make sure paragraphs aren’t too long (7 or 8 sentences is quite long already). According to me, to write a clear paragraph is a good habit and it will boost your SEO also.

If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

Tip No 2: Short Sentences

Always you should try to write short sentences. Believe me, It’s the best booster for your content.

Short sentences are simple to read and understand the comparison to long sentences. Because of this, you will be less likely to make mistakes in grammar as your sentences are rather short.

(Note  Use Grammarly Tool to avoid Grammer mistakes)

Personally, I consider sentences containing more than 20 words as lengthy. Try to narrow these long sentences. Make sure you only have a few sentences in a blog post that count more than 20- 25 words. Also, make sure a paragraph doesn’t contain more than one long sentence.

Tip No 3: Limit Difficult Words

According to me, Limit the use of words that are difficult to read:

You should remember that reading from a computer, laptop, mobile, notepad screen is harder for everyone. Words that contain four or more syllables are considered difficult to read. Make sure to limit the use of such difficult words.

in some cases, your blog post just is something that’s hard to explain or requires a more advanced vocabulary. In such cases, make sure your sentences and paragraphs aren’t too long, and your readers will still be fine!

You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.” ― Madeleine L’Engle

Tip No 4: Use Transition Words

Really! …

Yes, You can make and you should make a text much more readable by using proper transition words (or signal words, same thing). Transition words are words like ‘most important’, ‘because’, ‘thus’, or ‘besides that’.

These words give direction to your readers. These words provide a signal that something is coming up:

If you’re summarizing, you’ll use first, second, etc. If you want to contrast you’ll write same, less, while or either.

If you want to conclude, you’ll use hence, consequently or therefore.

The habit of using transition words will be like putting gum between your sentences. The relation between two sentences becomes clear by the use of transition words. Readers will understand your content much helpful if you make proper use of these kinds of words.

One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” ― Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

Tip No 5: Mix it up!

For attractive text, it should be very mixed.

But Why?….

Because it indicates that you are trying to mix it up a little! Alternate longer paragraphs and sentences with short ones and you are trying to attempt to use synonyms.

Few bloggers use the word ‘and’ or ‘too’ very often. Mixing it up with ‘also’ or ‘moreover’ could make a text more beautiful and much more enjoyable too.

  • your text is simple to read.
  • Avoid long sentences
  • Write clear paragraphs.
