1. Your Blog Content
Why your readers visit on your blog?
Do you know the answer of above question? If yes! Then good, if no! Then let me tell you the simple answer of this stupid question “to read a mind refreshing and engaging content”. If your blog don’t have engaging and informative content then you simple going to lose all your the traffic.

2. You Blog Design
Sometime your blog design also acts like villain for you. Because it doesn’t matters how much better you write you blog content unless you showcase your content in very well and beautiful manner. If you just snoop around all popular blog you able to find that they have both the things in their both hand. In one hand they have some awesome content and in other they have a really awesome design for their blog.
EX: if you put a very high quality shirt in a low branded box then the price and value of that shirt automatically falls down. Same goes for you if you don’t show you content very well then there is no value for your content. Because no one going to read it by getting scared of your blog design, layout, fonts that you used. So if you want to hold your visitors in your hand then makes sure that you have a cool and sleek looking blog design for you.
3. Too much Links and Ads on Your Blog
The third villain behind losing your blog readers is external links and ads. It’s very simple and easy to understand that if you put too many links and ads on your blog then you are just giving a lots of window to get escape your readers from your blog. Because who know which links and ads attracts your blog readers while they are reading your blog post and they just skip the reading and visit the link or ad to know more about it.
So if you want to hold your visitors on your blog then you must get curious about the number of links and ads you show on your blog. Because they might act like exit gate for your blog readers.
