Poll Results – Bloggers Want to Know How to Build Readership

This week’s poll has been asking for readers to suggest what they would like to learn most about blogging here at ProBlogger. The results are in and there are some clear messages emerging.

I’ve included screen capture of the results below but the top three areas that you’re asking for more information on are:

  1. Building Blog Readership
  2. Adsense Optimization
  3. Search Engine Optimization


I’m pretty happy with the results – it fits with what I was sensing from readers questions and conversations.

I also think it makes sense that the topic of finding readers (which is really what is behind both #1 and #2) is the biggest need of bloggers.

I’m increasingly coming to find that that while optimizing your ads is an important topic – that there comes a point where your ads are well optimized and where the only real way of increasing the amount of money that you can increase what you earn from your blog via Adsense is to increase your readership.

So thanks for sharing. I’m hearing you and as I’ve mentioned previously – I’m working on a resource that I hope will be useful in the ‘finding readers’ issue.

  1. Looks like ‘Writing Content’ aced out SEO, but I’d personally prefer SEO.

    Wow, Darren
    That graph really threw off the way your blog looks on IE 6
    I think if it was shrunk a bit, it would realign a bit better… don’t know if anyone else is having probs.
