    Hi Saif – this is very helpful, clear advice – thank you. Love the way the post’s written and laid out, too, giving a great example of what you’re actually talking about.

    I’ve heard another tip is to include a relevant video because this helps increase the amount of time people spend on your page. Also, to set external links to open in a new tab, to make it less likely your readers will wander off never to return.
