Website owners can send the push notification to the browsers. The readers do not have to be on the website. They just have to be on the browsers or on their mobile devices.

Now let’s see some detail how Push notification will benefit you as a blogger:
Real-time communication with your users right from the browsers –
By using push notification, you can send update or notification to your readers desktop or mobile in real time. You do not have to rely on them to open their email inbox.
Whatever they are doing on the browsers, they will get the notification. They do not have to on your blog.
You do not need mobile app to get mobile visitors –
Blogger or store owners often thinks , they need apps for mobile devices to target mobile users. With push notification works great with the mobile devices; you can push important notification quickly to the users and generate sales. You never need an app for the users to be in touch with your website.
Better opt-in rates than email –
People easily opt-in for push notification than to subscribe by email. People hesitate to share their email but opt-in for browser push notification is easy. Also, it is simple to unsubscribe.
Better click rates than email –
Compare to email, you have 20%-25% more chances of click rates. As notification is short and direct, there are more chances to get attention.
URL in notification makes it better –
A notification has the option to include URL, which makes it easier for a blogger to redirect the user to a specific website. For example, web hosting offer or a WordPress theme offer can be pushed to your readers with the URL so that you can get the commission for it.
