Sand Drops

Keep Consistency

Try to always be available to your readers.

Try communicating frequently, and make it a habit.

If you can connect with readers, they feel that they can contact you.

You have an obligation to your readers if your blog really takes off.

 

TIP! Strive to maintain a presence on your blog and be there when your readers have questions. You should remember that your blog is important to many readers so address their comments regularly.

Search Engine Optimization

Be sure that your blog has search engine optimization techniques built into it.

Search engine results are likely to be the main way people find your site, so a high ranking for the keywords you think your readers will use ensures that they get to your blog and not your competition.

Use key phrases which match your content and use them throughout your blog, in titles, ALT tags, and the content itself.

Content Writing

Connect with other Bloggers

Making frequent and interesting comments on the blogs of other people is a great way to increase exposure to your own.

Keep a folder in Google alert for interesting bloggers and check it daily.

Read your favorite blogs and comment on them regularly.

Make sure your comments have value but don’t hesitate to comment if you have something to say.

 

Frequent Updates

Update your blog frequently.

One of the biggest mistakes bloggers make is not updating the blog often enough.

People who were interested in the blog at first will soon become bored, as they wait for updated content.

Make sure to blog at least weekly and notify your subscribers.

Focused Executive

TIP! Don’t overuse plug-ins, ads, keywords or images. Doing this will raise a red flag on search engines and cancel out your hard work.

Publish Fresh Content

Post new content to your blog on a regular basis.

Posting new content regularly helps you maintain your current reader base, as well as attract new readers and cause existing ones to return.

It will also help your pages’ Rankings on Google over time.

Visitors won’t return if they aren’t getting updated content that isn’t available elsewhere.

Post on your blog once or more each day.
