Article CTR has exploded

by chill123 5 replies
I've been paying a lot more attention to structuring my articles recently. My CTR has sky rocketed from about 7% to and average of 72% (over the last two weeks). A recent article has a CTR of 93% from 124 views (and counting).

It is amazing what a little thought does when writing your contents/sales letter/articles. It is all too easy to get stuck in the "numbers game mentality" where you get obsessed at simply churning out the articles.

I urge you all to focus on quality not quntity.

    Maybe you could elaborate on some specific steps that you took? That would be much more enlightening for the rest of us.

      sure.

      one thing I have found to be killer is to followa pattern/structure and constantly tweak it an try to improve it. for example my intro paragraph always contains the following:

      - i identify myself as someone like them (e.g "i used to suffer from acne....")
      - i explain I had the same problem as them (e.g " my acne made me self concious and convinced that i was wasting my time trying to attract girls")
      - i describe my situation now (e.g. "now i no longer worry about my skin. It is not perfect but it is so much nbetter my self confidance has returned")

      when i write my articles I always have this template infront of me so i know exactly what each paragraph will contain.

      the results have been dramatic. there has been steady improvements in ctr as i tweak the points i try to make.

      hope this is of some use.

          Believe me this works as I posted about this the other day.

          By just restructuring your articles to pull out the motions that your readers have and then have your bio as how they can solve their problems, can dramatically increase your click through rates on your articles.

          I've been writing a lot of my articles in some of my niches where I dig deep into their emotions, corroborate their frustrations and then have a solution my bio.

          A lot of people write articles the traditional way by have an introduction, body and conclusion.

          You change that up a bit and provide a conclusion as a link in your bio and rest assured your click through rate will go up.

          The problem is a lot of people don't like to go back and tweak things like change up an article or change things on their webpages. They're always working on trying to get more traffic when they could actually use the existing traffic that they have and work on their conversions.
