Great Blogging Tips

Get a schedule and stick to it

Having a regular and continuous posting schedule serves multiple purposes. It lets your readers know exactly when to expect your pearls of wisdom. You have a lot of competition waiting right out of your door, and more new blogs being started every single day. You can either post 5 days a week or just once. If you specialize in a certain type of information, you may not want to post every day, but you do want to keep your content relevant and fresh. This will keep your readers wanting for more from you. This will also keep you from being totally forgotten by your readers.
Another reason is for the search engines. You want the search bots to get used to a certain schedule and pattern of posting, and then they will regularly come to index your site.

Use Your RSS feed

That leads us to the importance of using your RSS feed. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. What you can do is encourage and entice your readers to sign up to your RSS feed, that way they will be informed and updated whenever you post an article. Your article will only be a snippet of-course. And if it catches their interest and intrigues them, they will click on your link and go to your blog. Also, many other blogger’s are looking for new and fresh content. If your posts are something they feel that their readers may be interested in, they will include it on their blogs. This will give you even more exposure and bring you in the spot light.

Stay on topic. Stay informative

If your blog is about the financial market, stick to it. Don’t write an article about erasing carpet stains, unless you can relate it to something financial. I know it may seem natural, but… if you are writing from the point of view of being knowledgeable about a particular subject, make sure you are fully updated with your information. If you are mainly offering your opinion, make sure that it is clear to your readers. It is important that you establish trust.

It’s your reputation

Never endorse or promote a product that you have not personally tried. It will quickly become obvious to every single reader who has tried out a particular product that you are oblivion of what you are writing about. Your readers may not always agree with what you write, but by having an honest and a true opinion and offering factual information you will earn and maintain their respect.

Write with clarity and simplicity

Be absolutely sure that your posts and blog entries are easy to understand and comprehend. What may seem obvious and regular to you may be something completely new to some of your readers. It always drives me totally nuts when somebody writes: “as everybody already knows”. Unless you are a professor who is speaking about a course that you have already run through with every single student present, don’t assume that every reader comprehends and understands what you are speaking about. Also keep in mind that the worldwide web is just that, global. You are able to reach a worldwide audience, so depending on what kind of subjects you are writing about you may want to keep that in mind.

Be sure to do a spell check and proof-read.

Hey, it only takes a click of your mouse to use your spell checker and a few minutes to go over and proof read your article, so do it. Nothing is as ‘unprofessional’ as having a few misspelled words in your article and typo errors. You may also want to consider and rethink what you are writing, especially if you are in a heated moment. Remember that everything you publish on the net is archived and stored and can be found later. So whatever you are writing about, take a moment or even a day, to reflect what you are posting.

Using the right Keywords

this can be a little complex. You need to use the right kind of keywords in your article for the search engines to index your post accurately. If a certain amount of people are searching for some information is using particular keywords, you should make sure to use them in your article, several times if possible. This tells the search engines that you have relevant content that is related to what people are searching for. The trick is not to make it seem to obvious. Be sure to use the keyword in your articles headline.

Quality matters

Look, you just won’t get that many chances with your readers. People can overlook many defects in writing styles and patterns, but the bottom line is that if you don’t offer the kind of information they are expecting and want, they just won’t return back to you. I know I don’t myself. So if you need to, be sure to do some up to date latest research on your subject. Until you become proficient in just being able to articulate off the cuff, take some to plan out your article, or series of articles.

Build Better Blog

First do the keyword research for the blog topic / subject. Finding popular keywords related to your blog or your post topic is must. You will need at least 2-3 keywords to be used in blog title and around 10 keywords for post titles to start with.

Try to use the keywords in domain name, blog title, post title, post content,hyper link, ALT tag, TITLE tag etc.in a natural way.This will help you to get higher search engine ranking.

Try to limit no. of your labels / categories around 20. Use tag cloud or label cloud if you want to save space. If you have many topics on one blog try to regroup and relabel. If totally different topics are mixed on one blog and has sufficient no. of posts for each topic then start new blog for that topic. 4) Do not copy old posts of a blog on new blog.You can get penalized for duplicate content.You need to remove old copy from the search engine and then add same post at new blog.

Use post title optimization widget on this blog for blogger / blogspot blog so that you get better search engine ranking. WordPress bloggers can use plugin like All in one SEO for meta tag and title optimization.

Following are blogging tips related to look and content of the blog.

The look and layout of the blog should be nice, neat and beautiful so that it can create good impression on the visitor and he should feel to stay more and visit again. Content quality should also be good for this.

Navigation and layout should be such that visitor should be able to find the recent posts, labels very easily. So if Recent posts and Labels are near top of side bar it will be visible in first screen of the blog and the visitor will have a quick idea of what the blog is about and can jump to his topic of interest quickly.

Use pictures, images wherever possible to make your post colorful and attractive. Do picture / image optimization as described in my earlier post. No need to use large images, you can use medium to small images.

Loading time of the blog should not be very long or visitor will run away before the page opens. So keep check on what widgets / code you are installing and does it slows down the loading. If you are loading pictures, make sure that the file size is not big. Do not use BMP files, you can use jpg, png files. Also check image size. You can do all this using photoshop. As sometimes images load slower from external sources, check that also.

Blogging tips related to writing and visitors

Write your post after proper research and gathering total information. Do not write too long. Use grouping, paragraph, sub titling for arranging the information in post body.

Writing language should be easy to understand and wherever possible write in humorous way. If visitor enjoys your post he will come back.

Give links to useful resources related to your topic. Also give links to your earlier posts with proper anchor text wherever possible. This improves internal linking of your blog.

Encourage the reader to participate / comment. You can also run some contest or survey on your blog and keep some prize for that.

Use beautiful and professional looking theme / template and header image for your blog. There are many free templates available so you can easily get one suitable to your blog. Choose 3 column template which uses full 1024 X 768 resolution.This gives you more space.

The font color and size should be such that blog should be readable in different screen resolution. Other blogging tips to increase readers and revenue.

Burn your feed at feedburner and provide subscribe via email facility for your RSS feed.

Check your blog visibility and feed in different browser.Especially in internet explorer and Firefox.

Try to increase your RSS feed subscriber and use AdSense for feed to display Google AdSense on the feed.

Use Google AdSense or other advertisements in post body, right hand side bar and below the header. Use AdSense link unit with labels or links or below header. Match background color of AdSense with blog or post background color.

Read my post on blog traffic tips to build traffic from sources other than search engine.

Following are precautionary blogging tips

There should not be many outgoing links (pointing to other websites / blogs) in the post or side bar. Remove unnecessary outgoing links. Place all outgoing links near bottom of right hand side bar or footer.

Do not buy or sell links for link building.

If paid posts are must for you keep it minimum or have separate website / blog for paid posts or articles.

As said above do not write same post again ( duplicate content ). Do not edit old post titles and content for search engine optimization.

Do not have METATAGS only for main home URL of blogger blog, as it will be used for all the post and you will get duplicate metatag error in Google webmaster tools. You are also misguiding and confusing search engine by having same meta tag for all posts. So you can use script / widget which can give different METATAGS to individual posts. WordPress blogger can have METATAG for individual post by using All in one SEO plug-in.
