Best Blogging Tips in 2020
This post is not intended to provide you with a host of blogging suggestions, but simply to direct those of you who have either simply started or have been blogging for a while however have some bad habits.
Bad blogging habits are easy to enter into, and one of the worst is to leave your ‘About’ page the same. You know the page: it is supplied by WordPress as standard and a whole host of blog writers leave it the same. Why they do this is known only to them, due to the fact that this is the very first page that plenty of first-time visitors to a blog site have a look at, and the factor why a lot of them leave without looking further.
Choosing A Blog Topic
All you have to do is to state a little about yourself, who you are, and what your blog site is about, why you feel qualified to compose a blog site about this topic and how you can be called. If your blog site covers a particular specific niche, instead of being just a log of individual remarks, then your possible readers will want to understand why they should believe what you say by reading your qualifications on the subject.
There is absolutely nothing incorrect with having a personal blog about your individual ideas on things, but if you are providing yourself as a type of specialist on a particular subject, then you will have to encourage readers that you have a right to do so. You ought to use your ‘About’ page to do that.
Use A Blogging Platform
Another pointer you must take is to claim your blog with Technorati. This registers it as yours with Technorati, and you can get a whole load more visitors. Since joining Technorati many of my blogs’ traffic soared. It takes a while for brand-new blogs to start, however, it’s a lot much easier if you utilize sites such as Technorati. The same holds true of the majority of the social bookmarking sites if traffic is important to you. If you are using a blog to promote a product, then this is essential.
Hosting Your Blog On Your Own Domain
If you have a site then don’t get lazy and be content to run your blog from a hosting website such as wordpress.com. It is much better to download the software from wordpress.org and host your own blog site. You have far more control over the look and feel of it and can use any of the countless plugins that are offered online. You can also use any design template you want, and even design your own. That method you get overall customization of your blog site pages and can make it more unique than the majority hosted on WordPress or Blogger’s website. If you have tried and had issues downloading and installing it then send me an e-mail. If needed I can take you through it online, or by telephone.
Monetizing Your Blog
These are the two primary tips that any blog writer must take if they intend to blog seriously. Nevertheless, was I to offer the 3rd crucial suggestion for anybody thinking about blogging, then it would be to monetize your blog. Do not blog for anything. If your blog site concerns a specific niche subject you can likely throw up one or 2 affiliate programs on your sidebar so that they appear with your brand-new posts. A 3 column blog site works for this, considering that your routine sidebar will generally have lots of irreversible links.
If you monetize using Adsense, a three-column design is much more essential, given that you will desire a vertical block down one of the columns, in addition to some at the bottom and the middle. A great Adsense design would be a column to the left or right of the main text column including a vertical advertisement unit, a horizontal link unit at the bottom of the blog, and likewise a horizontal ad system at the bottom of the most recent post. You might likewise include a search box at the top or bottom of your primary sidebar that allows a search either on Google, from which you get income or on your blog.
You could also include among your sites as a second search alternative, supplying 3 entirely. The earnings might not be a lot, but most blog sites with a few hundred visitors a day need to be able to make from $10 to $20 day-to-day minimum, depending on the specific niche. All you need are a few blog sites like that.
These are my 3 main blogging suggestions. Yours would likely be various since blogging is a very individual thing, but if you take these three onboard you will likely discover that you will get more visitors, have more enjoyable and also have the ability to put a bit put aside for the vacations or that unanticipated expense that constantly comes at the incorrect time.
