What is Ideal blog post frequency – How Many Posts Should You Write Per Week?

“How often we should post on our blog?” or in other words “What should be posting frequency on blog?”

This question bothers a blogger in following situations

1- When blogger is new to blogging field.

2- Your blog is not getting enough traffic.

3- You are running out of fresh ideas for your next post.

 

Whatever be the reason, question is same – “What is ideal frequency for posting on blog”?

2-3 post daily

A number of bloggers says that one should post at least 2-3 post daily to get more and more traffic. They are correct but while going for 2-3 post daily we should consider following points

Your Niche- If your blogging niche is technology, entertainment, News or sports then definitely you have endless matter to write about and you need not to worry about the content of article as you will easily find lots of on internet. But if your Niche is about blogging, SEO etc. than you can’t go for 2-3 post daily (may be you can do this in initial few weeks but after that you will start running out of new ideas); because you have to provide fresh and unique article to your reader and this is not possible in such Niche.

1 Post per week

There are number of bloggers who post once in a week but again if you want to follow 1 post per week strategy then you have to evaluate your traffic as well. You blog will update once in a week and your reader will not find updated content on daily basis. If you are a new blogger then you should not go with this strategy.

So what is ideal frequency?

Nothing can’t be considered as ideal as number of post per week depends upon your Niche, your maturity level and your blogging goals.

Even though I have tried to calculate some numbers based upon my interaction with other bloggers in different niche.

 

New Blogger (blog less than 6 Month old)

Niche – Technology, Entertainment, news, sports etc.

Post Frequency: 1-2 post per day or 15 posts per week

=============================================================

Experienced Blogger (blog more than 6 Month old)

Niche – Technology, Entertainment, news, sports etc.

Post Frequency: 1-2 post per day or 10-12 post per week

=============================================================

New Blogger (blog less than 6 Month old)

Niche – Blogging, Health, Travel etc.

Post Frequency: 1 post per day or 5-7 post per week

=============================================================

Experienced Blogger (blog more than 6 Month old)

Niche – Blogging, Health, Travel etc.

Post Frequency: 2-3 post per week

As I have already mentioned that nothing can be considered as Ideal but if you can take the above calculation as your reference and see the result and then change your strategy accordingly.
