>7 Tips on Blogging for Value

>



Blogs are just as much about the reader as the author ?€“ if no one?€™s reading them, then they have no value outside SEO. So it?€™s essential to write with your reader in mind, and the best way to keep visitors coming back is to spark ideas, discussion and provide insight or knowledge of some kind. If you don?€™t already have a blog, you can take advantage of our WordPress hosting and one-click install (accessible via your eXtend control panel) to get up and running quickly.

We?€™ve put together a series of golden rules so you can ensure you?€™re blogging for value ?€“ and success!

1.    Make sure you have a clear idea of what your visitors are interested in by frequently using your site statistics (e.g. Google Analytics) and the information in the WordPress admin panel. You may well find that the posts with the highest number of comments may not share the highest number of views, so decide which is most important to you and work from there. Writing follow-up posts on popular topics is also a great way to boost reads.

Start by installing a statistics plugin such as WP Stats.

2.    Aim to tell your readers something they didn?€™t know before. There are lots of ways to do this, including offering advice, providing valuable links, collating useful resources and providing a fresh opinion on your chosen subject.

Check out SEOmoz for examples of value-adding posts.

3.    Stick to topics that you?€™re interested in and are relevant to your site content. There?€™s nothing worse than a half-hearted blog entry that serves no real purpose. Don?€™t write about something because you have to, write because you want to. Come across as interested, knowledgeable (or preferably both), and you?€™ll be adding value.

Find out more about how to write an interesting blog.

4.    Encourage discussion by taking the focus off yourself; make sure you refer to the reader directly and avoid overuse of ?€?I?€™. Remember visitors are reading for their own benefit, not yours! People like to voice their opinions and talk about their personal perspective, so present direct questions in your blog to make it easy for them.

Try 7 questions to get more reader engagement.

5.    Even if your ideas aren?€™t unique, make sure your view is.  If you’re stuck for ideas, one of the worst things to do is to browse similar blogs for inspiration as you’ll almost inevitably end up directly repeating the concept/content or excessively quoting from it. Instead search for simple blog ideas and brainstorm your own thoughts before settling down in front of a keyboard. It’s worth checking a few sites after to see what else is out there, but don’t do it beforehand.

Search for blog ideas quickly and easily via Google.

6.    Use social media sites such as Twitter to help analyse the value of your blog entries as well as a tool to get visitors to your posts. Take a look at the topics and links your followers are tweeting and retweeting to find out what phrases are used and what?€™s most likely to get passed on. A catchy or intriguing title always helps, particularly if it hints at a valuable blog post. Remember that the amount of retweets doesn?€™t necessarily signal page popularity as many users tend to automatically parrot things, so always back up your findings with site stats where possible.

Have a look at TweetMeMe and TweetCloud to see what?€™s popular.

7.    Avoid the hard sell. It might be tempting, but building a blog entry around a strong sales message will leave Google and your visitors shaking their heads in disgust. Rather than trying to mould content to fit your sales pitch, start with a valuable blog idea and focus on that, perhaps subtly referring to just one or two of your products or services where relevant.

Find out more about alternatives to hard selling here.

Blogs are an extremely important tool for presenting a personable aspect to your site and giving visitors a reason to come back, so always write with that in mind. Providing regular, valuable blog entries over time will help you to build your brand or personal site successfully and ensure respect across web communities.

>10 Bad Writing Habits you Should Avoid

>

Writing is an art, and like any other art one must be properly trained to do so. I started writing sometime back and was really happy about my work until all the readers laughed at my work and made fun on each and every thing I did. My writing wasn?€™t well presented and didn?€™t have headings, I made long ?€?very informative?€? paragraphs but nobody cared to read them. This made me research all about good writing practices, tools and resources.

There are ample of writers (including me) who do numerous mistakes while writing and don?€™t even know where they are falling short. Here, I have tried to investigate all the common faults done by writers and now putting them here. Go through them and do tell me if I have missed out any fault. Bad writing may be negated at initial stages but only by practice and conscious effort can the faults be removed.

Bad Writing Habits you Should Avoid

Don?€™t write in Old Time

You don?€™t have to mimic 400 year old style; if you want to appeal to today?€™s audience you must go through today?€™s authors and check out their writing style and dramatic style, see JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series is not just a children book, it’s hell more than that.

Do not write Long Paragraphs

Writing long paragraph and putting stories in full blocks actually kills the reader?€™s interest. People who read on internet are looking for more of fun reading and little shots of information along the way is well accepted. Make small paragraphs, looks well presented and easy to read.

Don?€™t make up Tough Scenarios

You need not beat around the bush for any reason at all, many times this is seen and it?€™s a total blunder as nobody likes to get caught in a puzzle. Making such scenarios as to get the reader more absorbed, actually takes the reader away from you.

Don?€™t stick to Stereotype Style, be Innovative

You need not stick to one format and style; stereotypes have overcome our world today. Same design, same format, same cloth and same sense make life boring. Innovation needs no boundaries and no rules as well.

Hear yourself and Write the way You Want

Listen to the ?€?inner voice?€?, write what you think and how you think, many times the employer puts constraints which makes the writer feel lost in his own land. Writer should know how to deliver while hanging on to his ways.

Try to Stick to some Old Practice, Don?€™t just go on Hearsay

Here I am contradicting my statement, but not without a reason. Safe play may let you go a long way, so you may sometimes stick to those practices which are proven and undoubtedly beneficial.

Keep your Titles Short, and use Easy Language

Keeping long titles and complex language may look good but makes an idiot of you as very few read it and even fewer would undnd ierstat.

Don?€™t ignore your Readers, Peers, Social Media

Often writers ignore their readers and peers; they write complete text and publish it giving less notice to what their peers have to say about it, Social media comments need to be taken seriously enough to alter it totally or be proud of it. Listen to the readers review, ignoring that may get you out of business.

Leave your Ego Aside

Some people high on ego reflect their ego in their writings, know your client wants your writing and not your ego. Some might argue that such a thing as ego as helped them rise but if it?€™s not kept down I am pretty sure it will get them down even faster.

Grammatical Mistakes

Putting down the most common (at least for me) grammatical mistakes done while writing. Go through these well as nobody could be perfect with each of these (unless with a degree in English).

  • Your vs. You?€™re

    Your means ?€?The forms of the possessive case of the personal pronoun you?€?.

    Usage > your book

    You?€™re, is a contraction for ?€?you are?€?.

    Usage > you?€™re not doing this right.

  • It?€™s vs. Its

    Its, means ?€?Possessive form of the pronoun it?€?.

    Usage > this page has lost its attraction.

    It?€™s, is the Contraction for ?€?it is?€? or ?€?it has?€?.

    Usage > It?€™s very important to use correct English.

  • There vs. Their

    There as noun means ?€?a location other than here?€? also an adverb.

    Usage > there are many people in this field.

    Their means ?€?The possessive case of the personal pronoun they?€?.

    Usage > their opinion is also important.

  • Affect vs. Effect

    Affect as verb means ?€?act physically on?€?.

    Usage > Communication skill immensely affects the income.

    Effect as noun means ?€?the central meaning or theme of a speech or literary work?€?.

    Usage > the effect of communication skill is immense on income.

  • Loose vs. Lose

    Loose as verb means ?€?become loose or looser or less tight?€?.

    Usage > See that your pants aren?€™t too loose.

    Lose as verb means ?€?allow to go out of sight?€?.

    Usage > don?€™t lose your wallet.

  • Who?€™s vs. whose

    Whose means ?€?The possessive case of who or which?€?.

    Usage > whose game is over?

    Who?€™s is contraction for ?€?who is?€?.

    Usage > who?€™s coming home with me??€?)

>12 Ways You’re Scaring Away Your Readership

>

There is a bunch of reasons why you are losing your readers. So, I?€™ll say up front that this articles is entirely based on my own experiences and what I’ve learned so far from blogging for almost a year. This is a list of some reasons why your readers never come back.

1 – Too Many Displaced Advertisements

This is the first thing strongly make your readers dislike your blog or website. Your content is what drives users to your site, and what differentiates your site from the next guy. If you didn’t have content, you wouldn’t make money off of ads. Focus on your content first to build a great subscriber-ship, then think about how to make money from your content. After 6 months of using Google Adsense to make some tiny money from my blog, I decided to remove all the ugly banners of Google Adsense to refresh the air(I will place them again, but in the future). The rule is don’t just place your ads anywhere, make them look like content.

Nice read:When Should You Put Ads On Your Blog? – This is how $40,000/month blogger makes money from his blog.

2 – Slow website

This happened to me before I move to another hosting provider. I used a very cheap hosting which I paid a year just compared to this one of 3 months. Remember, your readers don’t like 1 minutes loading to read just a quicktip post. Make sure you stay away from super-cheap hosting and optimize your website’s speed.

Here is some good tips:WordPress Optimization: How I Reduced Page Load Time by 75%.

3 – Posting duplicate content

Another good way to ruin your blog is publishing posts which already published before or elsewhere. Google and other search engines definitely also get involved when your content found is largely the same as some content in your blogs or other websites. If you want to gain traffic and readership, try to be unique. In case you don?€™t have the resources to write and publish on your own blog, or your budget isn’t allow you to hire someone to write, the easiest way is → Stop Launching Blogs, Start Contributing. It would be great if you can write quality content day-to-day, otherwise great quality articles sometime are better than having a lot of filler articles.

Read this before start blogging: Four Common Steps Every New Blogger Would Face When Starting A Blog.
Tips to be unique:7 Tips for Creating Unique Content That Doesn?€™t Suck.
Helpful article for blog content development:10 Ways To Find Inspiration To Develop Content For Your Blog.

4 – Not giving proper credit or high-jacking articles

Beware of content submitted from contributors when your blog has multi-authors. You should make sure to edit all the posts submitted carefully. I personally made a same mistake twice by publishing contributed posts without reviewing it carefully and I got warning from the original author immediately. If you are the only one who maintains your blog, don’t ever think about copying the whole content from other blogs. However, it doesn’t mean you cannot do ethically stealing. The rule is never copy and paste entire paragraphs from original article because it?€™s rude and wrong. I cannot find or don’t know if there is any penalty for content infringement; Thus, it is free when it’s on the Internet??? If you have any idea about this, the comment section is open for discussion.

Worth reading:How To Steal Blog Content: Ethically.

5 – Accepting every giveaway sponsorship that comes your way

Giveaways is one of the most effective ways to gain more traffic and readers. It hooks visitors so that they return to your blog again and again. However, the giveaways makes your blog attractive only and only if those giveaways are from popular companies who offer good products or services. Don’t accept or just simply deny some of them which are not good great for your audiences. Don’t publish giveaways too frequently because you run blog to share your knowledge, not team up with some companies to give away things. Thus, people comes to your blog because they want to learn new things.

You should do give aways things because:Hosting a Giveaway As a Blog Marketing Tool.
You should know:How to Host Effective Blog Giveaways.

6 – Annoying other bloggers

This is how you ruin your relationship with other bloggers. Marketing a blog takes time and patience. If they like what you are doing, they will promote you without your demand. Asking for favors all the time doesn’t harm anyone, but it’s a bothersome type of communication which people do hate.

Off-topic link but useful:Building Relationships: 11 Rules for Self-Promotion.

7 – Writing or marketing off-niche

You call yourself web design blogger, so that means you are talking about design stuff, and pretty much only design stuff… Don’t try to do something “new” by going off your niche into other things like proxy software, or other stuff. Most people in a niche market have a loyal following, because there aren’t often many other people covering that sort of stuff. (It happened to Woorkup recently. He went off with a lot of articles, news about some phone companies. Hope he will have more success with new Woorkup).

8 – Not engaging in the community you’re building (ex: comments, Twitter, Facebook, GBuzz, etc.)

You cannot just write and publish. Beside the time you do blogging, spend some time to be active in community and social networks. Keeping trying to stay in touched with everyone to catch what people are talking about and join their conversations.

You should read:How To: Be Active On Twitter Without Getting Burned Out!.

9 – Providing no way to directly contact you.

You blog/website needs at least a contact page for people to reach you. You can put your social ids over sidebar, footer, but don’t forget to implement one page for a contact form. This is typically the gateway to allow people to submit their questions, even suggestions to you. You need to keep your contact form really simple as you can, because they will close the page right after seeing a lot of required field. You better put your email beside the form in case one day, the form is broken. (Don’t write in email format, just like this: “magazine at aext dot net” – to avoid spam bots catching your email address.)

roper-contact-form/”>5 Important Steps to Design a Proper Contact Form
Contact form tips:10 Useful Tips for a Captivating Contact Form

10 – Offering limited or no subscription methods

Sometime, I don’t want to subscribe to a feed of a blog, but I really love to follow that blog in Twitter(or just be a fan on Facebook). However, where the hell is the Twitter link to its Twitter profile? I’m an Facebook addicted but I cannot find the fan page of this blog. That’s fine, I will subscribe to the feed and receive its updates via email, but … where can I put my email? (It happened to Smashing Magazine before they redesigned)

11 – Non-working JavaScript overlays

Make sure all of your Javascript is working properly because JS is so annoying to the readers when it doesn’t work properly. Slow loading, web browsers get crashed… are typically caused by javascript. I once went mad when I couldn’t click on the tabs list then my mouse got broken. Oh, that’s my own blog!

Links for Javascript developers:List of Really Useful Free Tools For JavaScript Developers.
Good link:Good Ways to Implement Javascript on your site.

12 – Improper terminology for your demographic and/or field

If you speak in design terms to a non-designer, they will think you?€™re mad. Then, if you write about design stuff in “doctor” language, they’ll definitely think you are crazy. I’m not a writing expert, but my advice is you will need to have a good understanding of standard terminology in design. Let’s write easy to understand instead of making the readers get confused.

Check it out:Art and Design Terminology.

I’ve learned a lot of things

These are how I’ve done blogging for almost a year. There’s a bunch of tricks and tips for a better blog I have learned, but these above are the most important things I would like to share. If you have any suggestions, please let us know in the comment section.

Blogging is one form of the commercial activities; it is not a private diary. The idea of the blogging is to communicate to the big amount of the targeted people. And to reach business targets.

So a business blogging has actually no difference compared with the website and the blog needs also the same promotional actions to become successful.

The business tool aspect sets a requirement, that your blog must have contacts, or links, with other related blogs or websites in the Internet. That is a must.

If you compare the links with the business relationships, you understand easily their importance. You can log on http://www.your-own-blog.com they simply bring business to the blog.

The article marketing builds a lot of related contacts, which presells the idea of the blog. So when a visitor enters the blog, he is enthusiastic and waiting for your story.

On the top of this, the article marketing builds credibility or brand image, which has a strong impact on your internet home business during the long term.

The great thing about blogging is that when you ping your blog after written a new post, tens of directories get the information about it and thanks to RSS feed thousands of other bloggers will be informed. Think about the quickness!

While blogging, use optimized text, i.e. write with the related keywords. This makes it possible to rank high in the search engines. Your article marketing must use the same main keyword in the Author Box.

This is the anchor text between your blogging and the article and a sign to the search engines, that these links will raise your blog high in the search engine ranking, when the article distribution has distributed them into thousands of article directories and websites.

The idea of the article marketing is to write unique, useful articles, which will help the reader to learn more about your niche or to get enthusiastic to or go to http://www.blog-and-ping.com buy something from your blog. So you want to influence on the behaviour of the reader and get traffic building backlinks.

The article marketing as a blog traffic builder is fantastic because it will bring both short and long term targeted traffic, build backlinks and the brand.
The winning duo, blogging and article marketing can be used with Blogger and WordPress.

One thing is important in blogging. The blogvisitors love the fresh and useful content. The usefulness is the greatest reason why they come cack and bookmark your blog. So I recommend a daily blogging or at least three times per week.
And, please use always a unique content! Otherwise the search engines will penalize you

You can earn money for yourself simply by blogging. Below are the step by step guides you can follow to successfully turn your blog from a content site to a money making machine for you, just by working some few hours daily.

Choose a niche
Think about what you know very well and what you can do it properly. Are you very familiar with fishing, hunting, and gardening etc? I believe every human being has one or two things which they can do very well. Everyone has a talent or area of expertise. After you have discovered what niche you want to get into and you are quite sure that you can create many articles about it. Move over to the next step.

Keyword research ?€“ title of your blog
Make a proper selection of the keyword you want to use for your niche. Let?€™s take for an example, if you want to write about garden, you can choose a keyword which you know people can use to find you from search engines. The fastest way to get the best out of this is simply to use a keyword research tool and find out what people are searching for in that your niche. Use that keyword as a title and write content about it. It will also be nice if you look for long tail keywords under the keyword you used for your blog title. You can use micro niche finder to find out the keywords people are using to search for the niche of your target at search engines.

Setting up a blog
You can either choose to use a free blog or you can get your own paid blog. But I suggest you start with a paid blog, but if you don?€™t have any money to invest, you can as well use a free blog. Get a free blog at blogger or wordpress. Blogger is easy to use; even if you are a novice you can create a blog using it in a matter of minutes.

If you chose to get a paid blog, you can get a domain name with a web host. I suggest you go for a web hosting with “fantastico”. Fantastico is a program which has network of programs which you can easily install with a click of a mouse. You can easily install wordpress.org by visiting your fantastico page without any technical experience.

Posting your contents
After you have created your own blog, the next step is to start posting your contents. Select a searchable title; write an article using that title. Make sure you scatter varieties of keywords that pertain to the title of the article all over your content especially opening and closing paragraphs, but keep it to limit so you won?€™t be penalized for keyword abuse. Remember if you must get organic traffic from sources such as search engines, you need to have a keyword rich article. By now you already know that it is through keywords that people who make searches at search engines can use to find your blog. Make each post a minimum of 250 words and a maximum of 5000 words. Don?€™t forget to include a picture which describes what you have written about.

Monetizing your blog
Here comes the part you must have been expecting. You can either add google adsense or affiliate programs on your blog. I guess you know what google adsense is all about but if you don?€™t know; it is an advertising program run by google. They give you the opportunity to add their ad code to your blog, that code will be able to display ads which match whatever your blog is all about based on the tags on your site. If you choose to use affiliate programs then the easiest option you can find would be eBay or Amazon products. Sign up for these programs and start advertising other product on your site.

Blogging to the Bank is a guide which was written by an expert who earns more than $70,000 per month blogging from the comfort of his home. He revealed the methods he uses to make this large sum of money from one blog alone.

People love to share their experiences. When the internet was not so famous, they used to pen down their experiences in a dairy that they shared with their near and dears only. Those dairies contained more of the private information and as the writer’s details were available through the dairy, the dairies were kept secured. With the internet came blogging.

You can share almost everything you want. You can publish your blog under your real name and details or you may choose to remain anonymous as most of the bloggers who write intimate details do. Remaining anonymous, they can share everything good and bad about anything, be it their life, their favorite topics, their office, their married life, or even their love affair.

Creating a blog is easy. You can create a blog on several platforms most of which are free. For example, you can create an account on Blogger in less than five minutes and start blogging about anything you want. You may write about your college life and your friends. If your blog contains interesting posts, you are sure to get good traffic.

Once you select the type of ads to be displayed on the blog, you need to consider the placement of the ads so that it attracts the visitor and arises enough curiosity in him to click the link related to the ads.

Once you have a successful blog running on the internet, you can also make money out of your blog. You can get some ads placed on your blogs and whenever the users click the ads, you get money transferred to your blog. If this interests you, you may also be interested in how to make money blogging courses. These courses are often in form of downloadable PDFs accompanied by videos. You can also order hard copies if you want. You can keep both the electronic version and the hard copy if you are willing.

You need a blog course that helps you in every aspect of blogging. This includes the format of blog, sites where to host your blog, naming your blog, driving traffic to your blog. There are several ways to drive traffic to your blog. The blog course should help you with these methods. The blog courses should also help you with writing good stuff that compels the reader to visit your blog again and again for more.

The way you write is also a major factor. You can buy one of the blogging courses and follow it dedicatedly to earn money from your blog.

post sound unnatural.

Use keywords in the anchor text of links in the body of your
posts since links have a higher importance to the search engines
than ordinary text.

If possible try to use your most appropriate keyword in the URL
of your blog. Search engines love keywords in the URL and this
will have a serious effect on your positioning.

2. Write posts that people will want to read. Put yourself in
the position of someone following your blog. Always write
relevant content which will be of interest to your blog
followers. Good content will lead people to recommend your blog.
As a rule, each post should contain a single topic. If you wish
to discuss two topics then break it down into two posts. This
makes life easier for readers and makes information easier to
find. A great mistake that many bloggers make is writing large,
infrequent posts. Get into the habit of writing short posts but
making sure that you post regularly at least 3 times a week.
This way, people will return to your blog because they are sure
there will be something new to read.

3. Use your blog posts as articles. Writing and submitting
articles is a sure-fire way to gain more visitors. Just turn
your blog posts into articles by formatting them, and perhaps
adding a bit more detail. This way you are building traffic and
writing for your blog at the same time. Recommended sites for
submitting your articles are http://www.ezinearticles.com and
http://www.goarticles.com.

4. Build links to your blog. This will also have a great impact
on your search engine ranking, especially Google. Build links to
your blog by exchanging links with other blogs of the same topic
as yours. This way you can guarantee targeted traffic. Come to
an agreement with another blogger that you will each write a
positive review on each other’s blog. This way you will get a
good testimonial for your website and receive a link on another
blog. If you have a main website, then make sure you link from
every page to your blog. This way you gain lots of links and
whichever page visitors enter your website, they will always
have the opportunity to visit your blog.

5. Ping the blog services. There are many services which track
and connect blogs all over the world. By sending a small ping to
all of these services you will let them know that you exist.
They will come and check you out and this could spell serious
visitors if your blog is full of good content and is regularly
updated. Sending this ping is not at all difficult. Just go to
http://www.pingomatic.com where you can send a ping to a number
of services very quickly for no cost.

6. Submit your blog to blog directories. Just like if you have a
website or an ezine, it is essential to submit your blog to the
top directories. A good listing in these directories could mean
100s of visitors every day. You can find a great list of blog
directories at http://www.masternewmedia.org/rss/top55/. And
don’t stop at blog directories. Don’t be afraid to submit your
blog to the big directories such as Yahoo and Dmoz.

7. Capture your readers’ email addresses. This is vitally
important because it is essential that you can keep in touch
with your readers so that you can update them about your blog
and make sure they are still reading. Just make sure you have a
subscription box on every page of your blog and offer a free
bonus such as an ebook as a reward for subscribing. With a good
list of subscribers, you can conduct surveys to find out what
topics your readers want your posts to consist of. Keeping in
touch with your readers will lead them to trust you and they
will continually come back to your blog and will recommend it to
their friends.

Just be imaginative. Keep trying different techniques to getting
people to your blog and see which methods work best. Remember,
creativity is one of the keys to internet success.

>How Blogs can Explode your Online Business

>

They’re popping up everywhere. Your favorite website has one. Your favorite television show has one. Even your teenager has one. Blogs. What are they? Why are they everywhere you look? Should you consider creating one to complement your online business?

Most simply put, blogs are like journals?€”only, instead of being made of the paper and cardboard kept secret by an even thinner piece of cardboard and a lock your baby brother frequently opened with a paperclip, these journals are online. Why does it seem like everyone has one? Well, because almost everyone does. And there’s good reason. Blogs can be used as journals, both private and public; they can be used as ways for fans to discuss the latest episode of their favorite sitcom; or, they can be used by major companies, especially those that are Internet-based, because unlike the traditional forms of advertising, blogs bring in more traffic.

For business purposes, there are many ways companies use blogs. For example, a company may have several blogs on its website, each one dedicated to something different: customer concerns, product updates, etc. In addition to being helpful to customers and other website visitors, these blogs bring in more traffic to the website, as well. Depending on the website, more traffic usually means more money. And more money means?€”that’s right?€”you’re on your way to that summer home in the Hamptons!

So, how exactly do blogs bring in more traffic? Well, Adsense ads with Google are a good starting point. The search engine visits your page more each time your update, ultimately moving your blog higher and higher on the SERPs (Search Engine Results Page) and leading to more revenue from the ads being represented in your blog.

Some pointers? First, the blogger will need to decide what he or she is going to write about. Choose a popular topic, one that people are interested in. “Underwater Basket Weaving” probably wouldn’t be a very wise choice as not many people seem to be interested in it. Unless, of course, you’re business is underwater basket weaving, in which case you should by all means write about it.

Next, focus on some keywords?€”these are the words that search engines are going to pick up on. Don’t dowse your blog in these words, but use them whenever you effectively can, ideally at the top of your own posts either in the headline or first few paragraphs. Lastly, make sure you write content that will attract, and keep, a strong readership. You want your readers to keep coming back, right?

Also, ensure that you are adding valuable content related to your online business to your blog on a regular basis, at least once every two to three days. Everytime you update your blog make sure to ping your blog using a service like Pingomatic. Pinging your blog lets the blog directories know that you have just updated your blog. One reason why blogs are powerful is that the search engines love blog sites since they are constantly being updated with fresh new content.

Submit your blog to the blog search engines by simply doing a search for ?€?blog search engines’ in Google or Yahoo and then submitting your blog url to them. A great way to increase traffic to your blog is by visiting blogs in your niche of similar content and leaving useful comments regarding topics posted in those blogs. When you leave a comment, you are also allowed to leave your blog url so when others read your comment they can then go to your blog to find out more about you.

Last, but not least, you must have a passion for the topic you have chosen in your blog. Remember, other people are looking to get value from the information
on your blog so if you are not passionate about your blog’s topic then it will show in the quality of the information on your blog. You must love what you do
or at least learn to fall in love with it.

Go ahead, join the millions of people and businesses alike. Get yourself a blog. Or corner your boss and suggest writing one for your company. Explain how blogs bring in more traffic, more traffic means more money, and more money means?€”that’s right again!?€”you’re on your way to the Hamptons.
