When I’m thinking about what to write for my next blog post, I always consult my Google Analytics data and blog comments. By writing posts based on what your viewers like, you will gain more traffic, more comments, and more loyal readers.
Google Analytics is honestly one of the most helpful tools for anyone who runs a website. I use my Analytics data to see how many viewers I’m getting, where they are coming from, and how they travel around Omega Web. My Analytics data also shows which blog posts are most popular. As you can see from the above screenshot, my most popular blog post is my Ultimatum review. This is mainly because I shared it on the Ultimatum Forums, so we can ignore this one. The next three posts on the list are How FatCow Web Hosting Screwed Me, Five Legitimate Reasons To Ditch Your Landline, and why SMS 2.0 Would Be a Slap In The Face To BBM and iMessage.
As you have probably noticed, those three posts are either controversial topics or my personal opinion, which means I should probably write more about my opinion.
If your blog posts get a lot of comments, this is another great factor in determining what your viewers like. If you have a lot of blog comments on a particular post, that might mean that your readers liked that particular post.
By writing posts that are suited towards your readers, you will gain more page views, more comments, and ultimately make more money.
