How to Improve Your Blog by Watching a First Time Reader

Today’s episode is all about how you can see your blog from a first time reader’s perspective, and draw them in to keep reading.

You will need to find someone to help you today (although I suggest a service to try too) but it can be well worth the effort!

In this Episode

You can listen to today’s episode above or in iTunes or Stitcher (where we’d also LOVE to get your reviews on those platforms if you have a moment).

Also – if you have a moment we’d love to get your feedback on the ProBlogger Podcast with this short survey which will help us plan future episodes.

  • How to find out how a first time reader views your blog
  • What questions to ask a first time reader to get practical, useful, detailed feedback to improve your blog
  • Tools you can use to make getting feedback easier

Further Resources on Watching a First Time Reader of Your Blog

  • Sign up (free) to Peek User Testing and you can get a 5 minute video of someone using your site. You can pay for more tests, choosing your audience, setting users tasks etc. and on different devices etc.
  • CrazyEgg shows you exactly where users ‘click’ on your site when there and creates a ‘heat map’. It shows how far people scroll and where they stop. Fascinating tests!
