What turns off Readers the Most?
Keep the readers coming in!
It is important to get readers to stay on your site/blog to read your content, if you wish to
learn how to earn from your site. However, many people arent aware of
what turns off readers the most. So, what actually turns off readers
the most? Read on!
6 Factors To Make Readers Go Away
-Long, Wordy Content
This is what irritates readers the most, me included as well. Having good content doesnt mean having a long and wordy content. Be aware that most readers wont be bothered to read EVERYTHING that you wrote. Therefore, it is important to summarise everything as short as possible that you want readers to know in your blog post. In short, dont beat around the bush, just go STRAIGHT to the point.
Dont post an article title talking about Google, and in your post everything is being focused on Yahoo. Get the idea? Try not to go off topic if possible, readers wont want to read on and they will not be back for your content no matter how good they will be in the future because they are unable to find what they want initially.
It's possible to get ideas from other websites, but dont ever try to copy everything from other websites. This would be a violation against copyright, and readers would be turned off by the same posts that they might have possible bumped through before.
Your content might be relevant to what the readers are searching for, but if its not interesting enough, they wont bother reading it further! Just remember, keep the posts short and rich in words. Also, include interesting pictures that is relevant to the the article,
This is certainly one of the big factors that turn off readers. Who would want to read something that is not being updated? Thus, always update your website/write more articles frequently, if you dont do so, most of your content will be outdated, and readers will not be attracted to it since they are most probably no longer that useful or important anymore.
-Too Much Promotion
Sometimes, overuse of promoting your own website/products through the use of writing articles will tend to turn off readers as well. Keep in mind that you are writing an article to provide your readers with the sole purpose of providing with detailed information of what they are looking for and nothing else matters.
Look how short I summarise my blog posts into? I could say a whole lot on those points if I wish to, but i've definitely included all the points needed to readers who are looking out for what turns off readers the most! I dont know if my contents are boring, but I hope it does interesting to you!
