11 Important Blog Questions You Need to Ask Today
Why is asking blog questions important?
You need to ask blog questions so you can make better decisions about your content and SEO.
With all the competition for readers, you can’t just hope readers will arrive.
Curious people learn by asking questions.
This post shares 11 blog questions we can investigate in order to become more successful bloggers.
The questions are in the areas of social media and SEO.
Let’s start learning the answers to blog questions that will make us better bloggers.
11 Blog Questions That Matter For Your Success
Blog questions #1
Is it good that https://www.mostlyblogging.com/how-to-get-out-of-facebook-jail/ brings in 26% of my blog traffic?
At the time of this writing, according to Ahrefs, this one post brings in more than 25% of my blog traffic. I am beaming over the size of this metric.
However, my business manager is concerned this means my other posts are doing poorly.
Who is correct?
Blog questions #2
Should the article state the number of minutes it takes to read?
My tech helper wants to put the number of minutes on my articles.
How to Get Out of Facebook Jail takes 24 minutes to read!
I say busy people will leave, and all people are busy.
My tech helper believes people set aside time to read blogs and will stay and read the post.
Neil Patel doesn’t have the minutes, but the Medium content curation site does.
What do you think?
Have you heard of Medium?
More information about Medium can be found in this review of the Medium Partner Program.
Blog questions #3
Do 3,000 people really search the keyword “best I can do is meme”? https://www.mostlyblogging.com/best-i-can-do-meme/ Currently brings in 7% of my blog traffic.
I don’t know about you, but I think that is an awkward-sounding search term.
What do you think?
Blog questions #4
How can https://www.mostlyblogging.com/pinterest-downloader/ bring in 5% of my traffic when it’s on Page 2 of Google’s SERPs?
Page 2 of Google’s Search Engine Results Pages gets very little visibility in contrast to Page 1 and the top of Page 1.
Blog questions #5
This post, https://www.mostlyblogging.com/tiktok-mp3-download/, started the week in the top 10. Ahrefs reported my keyword was lost. Does it return? I’ve tried linking to it and updating it but my best keyword is staying “lost.”
Blog questions #6
My quotes post used to be traffic generators for me. The concept of Topical Authority says if you do it once, Google will like subsequent attempts– you’ll look like an authority. This is essential for Google’s EAT Criteria– Expertise, Authority, and Trustworthiness get you to the top of the SERPs.
Yet, https://www.mostlyblogging.com/thankful-thursday-quotes/ keeps dropping despite my frequent tweets and my previous attempt at publishing quote posts like https://www.mostlyblogging.com/good-vibes-quotes/ which is my 17th best post. Why?
Blog questions #7
According to Ahrefs, 1300 people search “Ingramer Story” and find my article, https://www.mostlyblogging.com/instagram-story-viewer-online/ but Ingramer folded.
Why do they search for an outdated term?
Blog questions #8
My blog party, https://www.mostlyblogging.com/inspire-me-monday-linky-party-343/ is #8 Page 1. Should I be glad? I can’t update the post. The link closed.
How would you feel?
Blog questions #9
https://www.mostlyblogging.com/ubersuggest/ is in my top 50 posts but is on the bottom of Page 3 of Google’s SERPs for the keyword “unersuggest.”
Is this bad? Do bloggers really capitalize on spelling errors?
Blog questions #10
Why is my article, https://www.mostlyblogging.com/mewe-review-facebook-alternative/, ranking on Page 1 with Mashable as a competitor? In addition, the post is ranking for more keywords lately.
Have you heard of MeWe? If not, you’ll find information about more obscure social media websites here.
Blog questions #11
Why would 800 people search “productivity is the combination of”? My post, https://www.mostlyblogging.com/productivity-is-the-combination-of/, is in Position 3 in the SERPs.
Wrapping Up Blog Questions
Sometimes you end up with more questions than answers when you blog. If you don’t want to pay for Ahrefs, use SERPRobot. You’ll find information and a review here: https://www.mostlyblogging.com/serprobot-google-position-tools/.
In closing, as you can see, you often need to ask questions before you can get answers. You need answers to make an action plan for blogging success.
This post attempted to offer 11 of those questions in many areas of blogging.
Readers, please share so bloggers know which important questions to ask in order to become better bloggers.
