emulate their success at the end. One important thing in blogging is that after
learning the secret of successful bloggers it’s important to do research each
time you’re thinking about starting something new.
Blogging is no exception, and much of what I’ve learned so far
is coming from people who have been in the industry for years.

and difficult because you have so many options when it comes to hosting,
marketing and writing content.

before finding the one which works well. That’s the reason why it’s imperative to

external sources of traffic which are often inaccurate and expensive.

drive traffic to your blog when you can have people returning for free.

chances of someone purchasing a product or sharing your content each time they
come back to your blog.

6) Regular Posting is Vital.
your freshly prepared and published content/ write up.
Keeping a regular posting schedule is important for growing
your blog and building loyalty from your readers.
One of the toughest things to overcome is the inability to
consistently write fresh new content. Imagine having a visitor come to your
blog, read content they enjoy and leave because no new content has been
published since. Google has even added a “freshness” update to their algorithm
so people who consistently publish content will enjoy higher page rankings
within the SERP’s. The more content produced by a blogger means more frequent
indexing by search engines.
Here are some tips you can implement into your writing to
produce quality content more frequently… First, don’t. Over publish or try to
impress Google because setting a schedule where you publish 8 times a week is
Keep something which is simple and will allow you to publish
high quality content.

down to write. You can create an outline and write down minor headings to
streamline your content writing.
Another great strategy is to spread out your writing so you
don’t get tired writing 1200+ words in one sitting. Get in the habit of writing
300 words daily and after 4 days you’ll have 1200 words of high quality

on your search engine optimization, if you have to get content from your
mentor, endevour to reference him or her in your post. Doing this constantly will
lower your Page rank by Google! If you want to go far in blogging, spending
time writing or editing your own content will just be enough I assure you that,
everybody in one area or the other may have plagiarised contents but they try
to streamline and edit it so it looks totally different from were it was gotten
from and in most cases try to reference the source. So directly copying content
and pasting in your new site is prohibited by Google and will do you no good
7) Implement Guest Blogging .
The positive effect of guest blogging has never been
questioned or strongly interrogated and it can boost your traffic in one day in
a short while. The key is to find people who are in the same niche as you and
have established a solid reputation over the years. Now is the right time to
start building a list of high authority relevant blogs within your niche and
contacting them about guest blogging opportunities.
Keep in mind… When submitting “guest posts” it’s important you
submit only the best content. A rule of posting is to submit the best quality
content you would when publishing on your own blog. Make sure content is
relevant to the blog your submitting to and perform keyword research to find
“HOT” topics trending in the community.
Getting published as a guest blogger can drive enormous
relevant traffic to your blog.

these are all potential visitors to your blog which is important when building
your brand awareness.
