This week’s task (#16) in our Blogger Challenge is to identify and solve a potential problem for your readers. Be sure to read the day’s entry in the workbook. It’s full of great ideas to help you understand your readers more.
Darren suggests checking out the search words people use in order to land on your site. I’m pretty sure you can do this on Google adsense. I’d have to play around a bit to figure out exactly how. He also suggests installing an internal search box called Lijit. It keeps track of what your readers are looking for, so you can better customize your site. I just installed this today and am anxious to see how it works!
Another suggestion is to look at a bigger site in your niche (especially if you have a newer blog) to see what people are asking. A great place to do this is at the Ministry to Children Forums. See what people are asking, and write a post on it. Be sure to let people in the forum know as well!
