In this article we will talk about 4 most-noticed things in an article or blog post, hope you find some value and answer to your questions reading it.
Being a blog-owner, you surely know how many readers does your blogs have on average. One rule of blogging is that the author has to write for the readers. All this proves that without readers, a blog is just another stone lying somewhere in on planet earth. Every reader has his/her way of reading an article/post. In my assumption, 95% of the people do not read an entire article (every word). However, there’s no way to force anyone on how to read and conclude/judge the written material.
But there are some certain things in the world which can be assumed regardless of them being practiced in front of anyone’s eyes. The following are four things, apart from the primary content/text, in an article that a normal reader will for sure notice. The reason you’re been shown this is to help you decide on what things to focus the most in an article.
The Featured Image
This is usually the first part of every article on the web. The reason why it is so important is that the images speak a lot more than texts. They’re used to improve the layout of the whole blog. Although they might be resized when used in ‘Blog Pages’, they play a very important role to increase the click-throughs for the specific articles.
Note that it doesn’t matter to the reader whether you’ve optimized the images or not – all they care about is how the image looks and what message does it convey to the reader, and most importantly – whether it is relevant to the subject/topic being discussed.
I have a habit (don’t know good or bad!) of going through the headings of every article that I read. This gives me a brief of what I’m going to meet as I go ahead. There are certain parts (of many articles) that I skip because the headings already give me a very good idea about their content. Read this example to understand this –
I’m reading an article where I’m shown on “How To Assemble The Alienware Laptop For The First Time“. Now I know that I’ve already done 50% of it, and I’m stuck at 50%. Hence, with the help of the headings, I would straightaway jump to the part where I need help.
See how easy it makes for any reader if headings are being used?
Links are one of the most important parts of any article on the web. Not only it helps your readers to get any further information about any specific part of the article, but it also makes it easy for the search engines to judge your quality. You might have just clicked on that link – and here’s the reason why you did that –
Links are shown in unique styles in any article. That’s because the author wants the readers to click on them (for several reasons). Links can be styled in any way the blog-owner wants them to. Being unique in the style (color, weight or any other decoration), the links highly differ from the main content/text. This, hence, makes the reader (you!) click on them.
Most multi-authored blogs have an ‘Author Box’ at the end of each published post. This box usually shows the author’s name, description, link to other contributions by him/her and other social network links. However, every blog has its own opinion on choosing the tool that shows the author box – and every tool has its way of doing it (i.e. the functionality, styles, features, etc).
These author boxes attract the reader’s attention because the readers are keen to know about the person who wrote the piece of information they just wrote. Although not most readers are concerned about this, however, many of them are.
The conclusion is very simple – focus on improving all the parts of an article that are discussed above.
