Posting articles is one of the most powerful ways to bring traffic on the website. Therefore, many website developers and bloggers compete for the optimization of article posts on blogs, one of which is by installing songs on their blogs.
By installing songs on the blog will make article posts more interesting, especially the article is related to certain themes. Usually article publishers will add songs on autoplay blogs, so readers don’t have to be confused to look for play buttons.
