One of the great difficulties of bloggers is what your readers want to read. Even when the blog is specialized in a particular subject, there is always this doubt.
A blogger never write just for himself. He writes his posts to other people who think it convergent or divergent and distinct ideas that permeate each other well. A delicious salad or unpalatable opinions that should be measured to see if the posting is that you walk at least most pleasing.
In the post today bring six tips to find out what content your readers want to access. Read the following:
1. Stay tuned for comments
Unfortunately the Brazilian blogosphere has lost one of the things we were doing well, the comments on blogs. It is hard to see people commenting on blogs, expressing their opinions and discussions related to creating content. However, if your blog's comments, it is interesting to understand what your readers want and think through this tool. Only one comment can turn out to be ten posts.

3. Create a forum for open discussion
Some sites create a discussion forum where readers can talk to the editor and communicate between them. Perhaps the proposal does not fit all the blogs, I should make that clear. I recommend using this tactic especially for blogs with:
High level discussions: religious, political, sporting, educational, etc.;
Tips and Tutorials: gadgets, meta-blogging, software, makes, fashion, food etc;
Relevant issues: news, social services, sustainability, art, etc.;
Remembering that this is only a recommendation , not a rule! Blogs with other themes and reactions can also have their forums.
4. Make polls and go straight to the point
No frills or superficial analyzes. Go against your player creating polls and find out exactly what you need according to their own choices. I recommend you do the poll after stroke very well what the focus of your blog posts. So you can give your readers some options for future articles and meet their needs effectively. Do not be appealing , be careful! A poll a week is already too good
5. Use social networks
There is hardly a place in the world where people express themselves with as much sincerity as social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google +, E-mail etc). Probably some people will have visited your blog retweetar, share and send your post, give an opinion on the blog or even direct contact with you. It is worth paying attention and keeping a relationship in your network, it is an amazing medium.

6. Consider the numbers
Having thousands of hits on the blog is not only signal quality. Cling only to the mathematics of visits is stuck! The ideal is to better observe the amount of pages viewed per visitor and average time on the site that it is something easily measured by Google Analytics .
So you can see in your blog what types of posts that are more successful and which are not much success as well. Knowing this, it will be easier to draw a kind of post and get a better result.
I hope these tips can help you in measuring and content creation!
