3 Ways to Keep Readers on Your Site by Using Apture


Would you like to increase the time that readers spend on your site?  Well, there is an application that I use on my blog, that has improved the time readers spend on my site.  The application is the Apture Bar.

I’ve noticed that whenever I incorporate the features within a post, that people tend to stay longer on the site. Now if I can get into the habit of using the features on a regular basis, I’ll be doing mighty fine.

I actually happened upon a site that had the Apture Bar installed. I thought is was so neat and cool how the blog owner had their brand right before my eyes. To this day, I have the logo embedded in my memory. I fell in love with what I saw and the rest is history.

What can Apture do for you?

Apture allows you to incorporate more context within your post. Thus allowing your readers to stay longer on your site.

Apture provides some awesome features that I think are quite amazing. Interested in adding Apture to your Word Press blog then you will need to install the Apture plugin.

Here are 3 ways you can keep readers on your site longer.

1. You can insert more information about a particular term that you used within a post giving your readers more context about a topic or term. They will not venture away to seek this information elsewhere, but remain on your site.

For example, let’s say that I am writing about fat. I can insert a link that will give my readers the definition of what a fat is. Your readers have the opportunity to learn even more about certain terms that you didn’t have to define.

2. You can insert a video that is related to your topic within the post. This is one of my favorite features. Because the video will pop out when the reader hoovers of the video icon and automatically begin playing. The reader will not be sent away to You Tube, but they will stay on your site viewing the video.

3. You can share what people are saying on Twitter about a certain term you used within your post. And the reader will see who is saying what and might even decide to follow that person. All without ever leaving your site.

I like this feature too, because I’ve read some hilarious things that people were saying about certain topics. Sometimes I just play with this feature to get a good laugh.

There are many other reasons why you should take a peep at Apture, but today I focused on how you can increase visit lengths on your page.

*** Here is an added bonus, that has nothing to do with keeping readers on your site longer. It’s about monetizing. Apture allows you to monetize through Amazon. You never have to leave your site and go to Amazon to retrieve the html code. Everything is done by simply using the Apture feature that you have installed.

Have you seen the Apture Bar on other sites and what did you think when you first saw it?
