9 Formatting Tactics That Will Double Your Readers’ Average Time on Page

I’ve been through it all. From publishing posts that no one reads to posts that get thousands of views and hundreds of comments within a day.

Putting in time and effort into writing a post and then getting an average time on page of 10 seconds sucks.

When I write a post, I want readers to take 10, 20, or even 30 minutes out of their days to read it word by word. I know that not all readers will do that, but if a decent chunk of them do, I’m thrilled.

On a typical blog, only about 2% will spend more than two minutes reading a post.

Fewer will read the whole thing. The good news is that yours doesn’t have to be a typical blog—it can be better.
