Knowing your target audience and what they're looking for is the first ket to getting more traffic.

Many bloggers think they are God’s gift to their readers.
It's true.

Instead of staying on topic, they post about all sorts of personal things that aren't relevant to their niche, thinking their readers will love reading all about them.

Sure, they may have close personal friends who will follow their posts no matter what they write about. But as for the masses out there in cyberspace, they probably don’t care about your cool, new iPhone case.

That is, unless your blog is about cool, new iPhone cases.

It’s ok to sprinkle in details that add a personal touch, just don’t get carried away.

Your blog should be centralized around a singular theme or niche. Need a little help nailing it down to one central idea? Follow Kyle's training on how to find a profitable niche. He shows just how profitable even the tiniest niche can be.

So when you choose your niche, STICK TO IT and STAY RELEVENT TO IT. Your readers will appreciate this and follow you because they’ll know what to expect in future posts.

This is the beginning to building a loyal reader base and building traffic.

It's good to be over 300 words for sure. The 500-800 range is probably comfortable for most. And sometimes there are posts where you're not even trying to be wordy but you finish and it's in the 1500 range.

As long as you have quality content, that's the key really. I'm glad you enjoyed the tutorial. Thank you so much!

So we don't need to write 1500 words?

If you're writing a post and really writing from the heart and doing your best to not only tell a story but *show* the reader how to do something, and you finish up and it's say 700 words, there's no need to go in and try and stretch that content out with filler to get it to 1500.

You have to write naturally, with relevant, quality content.

It's a good idea to not be TOO brief though. An article under 300 words probably could use some more thinking out.

But you don't want to just add words to reach a word count. That's for sure.
