Blogging is a place for interaction; hence visitors are must for any blogger to become successful and professional person. Blogging also means of exposure of your suggestions and thinking. This has always been the best place to expose your knowledge and talent.
Blogging gives so much exposure that you even, can be a brand for the whole world or you could be an inspiration for the rest of the bloggers along with new blogger entering into this field. While becoming a blogger is easy but holding back till the end is very much difficult and most bloggers get stuck in this area where they are not looking forward to make their blog a brand and easily get out of this field.
Blogging seems to be interesting and fun at the very beginning, but later on it might bug you because of absence in response (traffic) on your entries which was the result of your hard-work. The presence of so many blog’s makes it competitive and challenging to create a different, attractive blog which is engaged with visitors and there comments. The major goal of every blogger apart from this is to be at the top in the list of “search engine optimization”. Here are few tips to improve your blog –
Narrative post titles
Titles of the post play an important role in increasing the traffic and to pursue the position in the search engine optimization. Hence pay attention and importance towards the title as much as the content it in. A title should be clean, tricky and good to attract the visitors. All post Titles should be chosen in such a way that it places all keywords of the post in it. This is where many bloggers are currently working hard .
Selection of Right niche
A blogger should try new things and should be assure of the “niche selection”. If the topic is not that relevant or interesting (of no-use), then you will find difficulty in writing on the topic and also may face lack of visitors and response. You can also start with a personal Blog until unless you find a niche perfect for you to step on. Finding the niche which has lot of searches will make the blog to grow fast as possible.
Inbound links and Keywords
Include keywords in the body of your post, particularly in the beginning of the post. This will help you to improve the position in the search engine. You can use Google AdWords’ Keyword Tool. Inbound links are not under your control, but can improve your search engine ranking and also the traffic.
Inbound link is a link from another blogger or website that points to yours. If you will write regularly and create a good place in blogging community, then chances for inbound links will definitely increase.
Purpose for writing blog
Blogging is a place to work with patience and efforts. People step into this field admiring other successful bloggers without realizing their efforts and their hard work for making it a success. They misunderstand that they can earn well from the day one and stuff their blog with affiliated links and advertisements (You should avoid this until unless you collect the minimum traffic which results in profit). Therefore, your first aim should be to promote the blog and work hard, and then you can aim for a profit through it.
What not to do
You should not get personal in your post, this can become a reason for loosing our visitors. People hardly know personal life of their neighbors, so your visitors will never be interested in your personals. Sharing your experience and knowledge which can be helpful to the world is different from your personal. Eg: Sharing a solution related to any internet query is different from sharing your experience with your puppy. This is the most important,and to be learnt by every blogger.
Blogs with just text in and around will be quite boring and unattractive. So beyond writing include some attractive elements like images related to your post along with some interactive elements like multimedia content and some charts and graphs. If you find any difficulty in performing any of the following task in blogging, then there is always an option to add the multimedia content so as to make your blog attractive. However one can also use blocks and bold quotes, bullets and points to make blog readers interesting while reading your blog post.
Stick with it
Stick with a particular design of your blog. If you keep changing the design, that might confuse your visitors but frequent changes are good for SEO as well.People create and abandon their website or blogs within few weeks or months, as it’s a field, to work with patience in mind. Few months will not give you any fruitful profit even if the blog is lacking in any way. A year or more of Regular-writing and improving, it will definitely result in better ranking of your blog/site in the search engine with profit. This can be nicely said as, in the turtle and hare race, where turtle always wins at the last.
