It is becoming very tough to rank your blog on the internet for the huge competition. But the first thing is to write compelling blog posts that offer help for the viewer.
I think it is a wonderful idea to share some simple tips that could make your blogging easier and more enlightening to your readers.
When you write your post think about your reader, don’t ramble on with extra things that might not interest your reader. Re-read your own post and see if it is not rambling on.
Offer helpful advice
If you have something to offer, do it! Let your reader know how to do something, where to buy something or anything that might be helpful to your reader.
Make it personal
Do you have a story that relates to your post? If so tell your story to your reader and engage them with your individual thoughts.
Links, link & more links
If you can link to other blogs that have a similar post, not only does it spread the love around, but it could get you some backlinks in the future.
Don’t get too technical
If you are writing a post that explains something make sure you do it in baby steps. Not everyone reading your blog will be at the same level as you. You don’t want your reader to be sitting at their screen with their eyes glazed over do you?
Always try to put a happy face on your posts. Try and write your post like you are smiling when you are writing. Nobody like a sour puss and if you are mad or mean it will turn some readers off.
Try to post as much as you can, this will build your readership. Nobody likes to read a blog that has not been updated in months. If you can, set a schedule for your posts, if you can’t post everyday then try three times a week, or every Friday. Try different ideas and experiment with them. Do not make your blog gets stale.
Get the word out
Don’t just leave your post on your blog, go Tweet about it on Twitter, post it on Facebook, make sure your feeds are working, better yet get them on feed burner. The more publicity you get to your posts the better your readership will be.
The number one turn-off for me when reading blog posts is spelling errors. It is easy to make sure your posts are spelled correctly; most browsers have a spell checker built right in that checks as you are typing your post.
If your blog has comment moderation (I am sure it does) make sure you support your comments as soon as possible so that your readers don’t have to wait to see their comments posted. Also, this averts multiple comments stating the same
