Google’s main function is to assist users in finding the information they are looking for. Bounce rate is one of the many variables they consider when determining page ranking by making your site easier to navigate you help your readers, Google and your site’s SEO.
3. Keywords & Anchor Text Ninja Footers is fully customizable. This gives you an extra opportunity to add keywords to every post in your blog. If your anchor text (the clickable part) uses your keywords, you can increase the impact of your post footers dramatically. Including keywords in the anchor text lets Google know what your “target page” is about which then makes it easier for Google to send relevant readers to your site.
4. Increased Conversion Pop-ups that “fire” the second you visit a site can be annoying. However, if a reader has made it to the end a blog post it is fair to assume they are an engaged reader. The post footer is a perfect place to add a conversion opportunity. Whether it be a mailing list Optin form or an invitation to follow one of your social media channels, there is no better spot than directly after you have already provided your audience information they find valuable. Post footers can dramatically help almost any WordPress website. They help your readers navigate your site, Google understand your site, give you an extra customer conversion opportunity and can play an essential role in your site’s SEO strategy.
