Graphics Every Blog Post Should Have to Increase Traffic

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

As the owner of a blog, you want to do everything you can to attract and keep as many visitors as possible. Of course, creating interesting content is top priority when making a blog. However, using eye-catching graphics is also important if you want to maintain the attention of visitors. Consider a few types of graphics that can help you increase the amount of traffic traveling to your blog each day.

Headings with Bold Text

The content on your blog should be succinct. Your readers should be able to give your posts a quick skim and know what they are all about. In addition to being succinct in your writing, give each post a heading. It’s effective to use bold lettering to make a heading standout to readers. Use the main heading and the subheadings within an article to highlight the ideas you convey in each post.

A Memorable Logo

Taking the time to come up with a memorable logo is an effective way of increasing traffic to your blog. Use the logo on your blog and in advertisements for your blog. Also, use the logo when you write guest posts on other people’s blogs. The idea is to make your logo a familiar sight all over the Internet. This gives you brand name recognition.

A Consistent Color Theme

Instagram displays its name in black, script lettering. Facebook has a lower case blue f on a white background. In short, you immediately recognize these names and logos. This is due partly to the consistent color and font used in them. Creating a color theme and using a particular font for the name of your blog can help to make it more recognizable.

A Call to Action

One way to get visitors to click on promotions and ads on your blog is to put out a call to action. Give your visitors a tempting reason to, ‘click here right away!’ Let them know they will benefit from whatever it is you want to show them via a link. It could be a link to a useful product, a fun contest or an interesting event. If they like what they see, there is a good chance they will return to your blog to see what else you have to offer your loyal visitors.

A Suitable Text Size for Your Blog

Creating an appealing, popular blog means pairing the right text with the right images. You don’t want to have huge images beside tiny text. This is off-putting for visitors. Alternatively, your visitors will be drawn to text and images on your blog that work well together. Be sure to use color combinations that are pleasing to the eye.

Finally, remember the way you present the content on your blog is just as important as the quality of your posts. A gathering of interesting posts enhanced by eye-catching images is sure to claim a place on the favorites list of many of your visitors.
