the term “sneeze page” is enough simple in concept. You build a page that drive people in different pages of your blog in order to highlight some of posts that you’ve previously written.
The downside when you post frequently is that while the most recent posts that you’ve written are on the front page and more visible, your old post go largely unnoticed once they drop off the front page. Thus, to make them visible are the challenge you face.
The main reasons why you should use a “sneeze page” are:
- It improves your SEO– A blog with internal link take one step further in your SEO optimization and give your pages better chance of ranking well in Google.
- It shows your old post– I spend a lot of my time writing blog post, and I want people read it.
- It shows your top post –If you add the 10 top posts that you’ve written previously, you increase the chance people coming back to your site and become a regular reader.
How To Create A Sneeze Pages?
There is different way to building a ‘sneeze page’. For example:
Related Sneeze Pages – What I like about related sneeze pages is that you can organize group of post with a similar theme. Once you choose a group of old post with a similar theme, you can drive your readers deeper into your blog.
Week sneeze pages – Blogger use this strategy to show key posts that they might want highlight by creating a sneese page at the end of each week.
Year sneeze pages – Another strategy similar to “week sneeze pages” is to create an archives page that highlighting posts from the blog from a year ago. Also, if you have a Twitter or facebook account, you can quickly create a post welcoming for new readers, and rather sending people to your home page, you can send them to your own special page with this old post.
Series Sneeze Pages – Bloggers can create a group for a series of articles in order that readers read the full series. Thus, all of the posts in the series are linked withing a sneeze page.
Where To Promote Your Sneeze Page
Sneeze pages can be a great way of make read your old post – but it depends how you’re able to attract people to the sneeze page.
The best way to promote a sneeze page is where people can see it. Usually the ‘hot zone’ where put the link to your sneeze page are the sidebars on your blog.
