I run a forex blog which gives aspiring traders tips on forex trading. Due to the technical nature of the subject matter, how often a week should I post without bombarding my readers with too much information?

    I think it depends on your niche and your what you goals are, in the forex niche things can change instantly so daily posting would be possible but not necessarily ideal. It may be more beneficial to focus on 1-3 posts a week that are well written and attractive to your audience.

    There are no set rule. You need to see what readers want , divide them into a series kind of thing then write. In start you need to populate your site more with content but as time passes you can take gap in between. Make sure you structure your content like a guide , so user can easily go from 1 to 100 without confusion.

    It will vary depending on your audience.

    I'd say at least 1-2 times a week if possible to keep your audience interested.

    The sweet spot in my opinion would be 1-3 times per week to make sure your audience knows you're around and thinks of you. Depending on your niche, as Jmos has said, you may consider increasing that frequency. It's a delicate balance though because very few people (if any) want an email from you every day of the week. Most people just don't have time to go through that many emails, even if it's great quality content.

    I follow some great people and I receive great content from them, but I just don't have time to properly implement their lessons or practices. I find myself filtering based on the subject line and will delete emails without opening them. I don't unsubscribe because I love their content, but others are not so nice and would unsubscribe to help clean out their inbox.

    The other thing here is that you're asking about a blog entry. Often times, blogs are kinda long and tell a story. This takes up more time to read for your readers. This is different than those who email other types of content that is much shorter in length to read. So the length of your blog is also a factor. If your entries are always quite long, I would stick to just 1-2 times per week.

    As it's a forex blog do thrice a week. Because there are lots of changes going around in that sector.

    This stocks up high, this down. etc etc

    You could try doing daily ( not too short and not too long ) something around 600.

    You should always post a minimum weekly .If you have room in your schedule to post 2 times a week then do it.Never set a schedule that you cannot stick to.More importantly it is the value of your content you write that matters most and consistency.

  • You can post blog 1 minimum in a week and 2-3 max in a week. For best results, you can post 1-2 blog post in a week.

      Would you stay subscribed to an email list where you received 15+ emails per week? You'd have to have a LOT of time on your hands to appreciate that many (or more) posts per week, no matter how much you love their content!

    There is no specific threshold for this ! but if you are in competetive niche 2 / 3 posts will be good enough !

    try to write something useful and unique and get as much engagement as possible !

    Keep readers busy with your new topics !

    We cannot decide how much blogs to publish on a website as it depends upon the business category and the readers. Still publishing two blogs in a week having approx 1000 words per blog is an ideal condition for any business category.
