When you post to your blogs, do you use images? Do you know why it’s important to do so? There’s a saying that, “A picture can say a thousand words” which really rings true to me when it comes to blog posts.
Studies have shown that people are much more likely to click on an article or post that has an image attached to it than one that does not. The right image can sometimes be enough to draw a reader in from the picture alone.
When someone is scanning your blog and some posts have photos and others do not, they will be drawn to the ones that do over those with text only. If your blog is listed on a social bookmarking site, blog directory or any other site advertising blogs, people are going to be more likely to click on your posts if they have images of some type.
Here are some examples of images you can use on your blogs:
If you can’t get an image every single day or for every single post, you should try to do so for every other post or every 2-3 posts.
There are so many great places for you to find photos and images to use on your blogs that there’s just no reason not to make this simple choice for a better blog.
