  3. Please elaborate power of numbers

    • Ashwani & @Umar Sattu : Yeah sure i will elaborate the point to you clearly 🙂 . By the way am sorry for having late reply.
      Many visitors or readers tend to have their eyes upon the text/content which have numbers, I mean that if you write an article with numbered list like as i did here in the post. Just like a step-wise tutorial but with a numbered list.

      Example :
      1. The power of numbers
      2. Relevant links must be added

      In the above example i have mentioned some points with a numbered format and also in that case
      we can also use the bullet points but that comes into an another category.
      Hope my explanation clears your question 🙂

  4. Great tips.This will definitely help you reduce bounce rate and that means converting page views to visitors and invariably to follower and ultimately to dollars

    • Glad to know the article is useful for you 🙂 .
      Bounce rate is one of the main issue to have an Entrance page(Landing Page) & Exit Page on a website.
      For a better bounce rate the website should have content related to what the user is searching for…!
      Here keyword implementation works well but never make a page all with keyword stuffing.
