Boost Rankings and Lower Bounce Rate with Most Popular Pages and Posts

Today I’ll share with you one of the best kept secrets to boosting search rankings while lowering a website’s bounce rate.

Often times, websites are launched having a design and architecture of a Tesla while the content marketing and content itself has the power of a moped at most.

I’m often questioned about how to achieve consistent website search rankings across major search engines a few times a week.

From spinning content to private blog networks to paying less-than-stellar content writers for sub-par content, there are many methods to attempt to boost search rankings.

But one thing I’ve discovered across two decades and counting online about consistently ranking websites is that their content does the following:

  • Engages
  • Empowers
  • Equips
  • Encourages

These four alone will cause visitors to appear, reappear, and share your content with the masses, which then causes search engines to take notice.

But the challenge in all of this is can you consistently deliver content over time, months and meaning years — not just hours, days, or weeks.

In addition to the normal tips and tricks to lower bounce rate and boost search rankings, I’d like to introduce you to the concept of displaying your most popular website pages and posts.

If you an owner of a website, then you likely know how easy it is to understand which of your website pages and posts are ranking well across major search engines using both Google Analytics and Search Console.

But what if you wanted to entice visitors to stick around a bit longer when they land on your website? 🤔

That’s right, simply display most popular pages or posts at the end of or in the sidebar of your website’s page or post.

I wish I had known this secret earlier when first launching my WordPress website. I could have likely retained many more visitors using this one plugin that I review weekly, if not daily: WordPress Popular Posts.

The WordPress Popular Posts Plugin is by far one of the easiest plugins to install, activate, and setup.

In fact, you can likely set everything up, have it operating, and tracking post and page usage in less than 10 minutes of time.

The WordPress Popular Posts Plugin allows you to track which pages and posts visitors view, whether logged in or not — which creates a list of most popular or frequently visited WordPress pages and posts for you to display to visitors.

Not only does this encourage more visitor engagement with your website, but it also has the opportunity to realize a lower website bounce rate while adding links to the page for search engines to crawl. 🚀📈

Talk about a game changer for your website and its overall user experience! 👏

And speaking of talk, I’ve don’t enough of that in this post. Hurry along and install this WordPress, and get ready to learn about which website pages and posts resonate with your reading audience.

Also, if you need help, I’ve added a tutorial video for you to watch the installation, activation, and configuration of the WordPress Popular Posts Plugin.

Enjoy, and that’s all for now!
