Feed readers are a great way to stay current on our favorite blogs. The blogs are automatically updated, and we can pick and choose which posts we want to read…all in one place.
If we read posts in a feed reader, we don’t “see” the actual blog, nor do we see any ads.
Although you can monetize your feed reader, that’s another subject.
So, the question becomes, “How can I turn my feed reader readers (that’s not a typo) into actual visitors, and possible ad clickers?”
Insert a link.
If a feed reader reader clicks on a link, it will take them off of the reader and onto the linked site.
So….insert a link to a post of your own.
Find an older post that adds value to the current one. Make it enticing for the reader to want to click on the link.
This will bring your RSS feed reader reader directly to your blog.
If you have ads, they may be tempted to click on one or two.
If you want your links to open in a new browser (window), a must read is: How To Create A Link In A New Browser
Do you click on post links in your feed reader?
Do you mind that by clicking the link, it takes you off of the reader?
If you land on a site, do you find yourself exploring the site and reading more than one post, and/or checking out the ads?
