If you don’t provide them with what they need then they are just going to find someone else. So, in order to keep your visitors interested in what you have you have to give them what they need.
Most of visitors who visit your blog must be searching for some keywords.

It’s a mixture of little things, like collection of latest information, presentation of that information, attractiveness of the design of the blog, Simple enough language that can be understood by everyone, use of illustration and colorful images to give detail and color to your topic.
