4. Write long-form content
Your introduction to a post can be boring and cause readers to lose interest in the rest of your content.
Your visitors will click the back button if you have a dull intro. This can also affect your bounce rate, session length, and other factors.
Avoid it by making your intro interesting. Highlight the problems and offer solutions to keep the audience engaged.
6. Subheadings Make Your Content More Readable
Many readers prefer to quickly scan the content to find what they are looking for. Subheadings make their job much easier.
A long text without subheadings is nothing but a boring piece of text. It can make the post look boring and even cause readers to lose interest.
Sectioning your content using H2. H3. The H4 subheadings are a great way of making it more readable and improve your post-session duration.
