This post is strictly for Bloggers! If you are not into blogging then you should go back.
Blogging becomes so ubiquitous nowadays that the competition between bloggers is fierce. When there are more competitions you have to improve yourself and do something that makes you stand out of the crowd.
You might find so many bloggers who are blogging but out of them not all are credible, trustworthy and helpful but on the contrary there are many who are good. Being good in blogging is something you really need to stand out but it doesn’t mean to post killer content only. You need to do a lot of hard work and follow many guidelines to make yourself a better blogger.
Here I am sharing 12 ways that might help you make yourself a better blogger:
1. Have a blogging plan
When you start your blog, you should have a plan to work further. Your plan should include:
1. The article publishing frequency on the blog.
2. To do keyword research and insert them in article.
3. To build links for your blog so that you can rank higher in search and grab more traffic.
4. What will be your social media strategy to promote your blog there?
5. What monetization ways you will implement.
You must have a plan on these topics and even more things at least for next 3-4 months so that after that period you can track the success rate which can give you clear idea as what things are working and what not.
2. Learn to work hard with patience and consistency
No doubt hard work is the key to success but if there is no consistency in your work then it won’t help you alone. You have to do work very hard with consistency so that your blog never stays stagnant. Stagnancy can kill your blog slowly. When you are consistent, it shows your devotion towards your blog and this surely makes you a better blogger.
3. Have patience
Hundreds of blogs are being started and hundreds of blogs are being closed as well on daily basis. Do you know why bloggers shut down their blogs?
In most cases the reason is related to traffic and money. Many bloggers when don’t get results instantly shut down their blog which is wrong. Everyone should have patience because good results take time to come.
Hence, you must have patience and keep working hard with consistency in a planned way. Results will surely be seen sooner or later.
4. Give Priority to content
Content is fuel for a blog and you might have heard this saying: “Content is King” which is exactly right. Content plays the most important factor of a blog’s success. Readers get impress with the quality of writing and information shared on the blog so spend more time in producing great content.
Giving priority to content over marketing is the sign of a better blogger.
5. Don’t forget Keywords
As I said above that your main focus should be producing great content but you also need to keep keywords in mind.
Before writing content, do a proper keyword research as per the topic and while writing the article insert them naturally with good keyword density. It is always said that content should be written for readers not for the search engines. Its right but when you put better keywords there in the article then it indirectly helps users to find the exact stuffs of their interest search engines.
This is an important task too to get targeted traffic from search engines. A better blogger strive to build traffic from all the sources including search engines.
6. Build backlinks
Putting keywords in the article makes sure to show your article in search engines but link building increases the chances of showing it above in the SERPs. So link building should not be missed. You can do it by guest posting and other methods of Off page optimization.
7. Be Active on Social Media
Everything online is going social and you should also be active there to interact with your audience, reply to their queries and many more. This helps you build brand for yourself and for your blog as well.
8. Build healthy relationships online
Building healthy relationship with your fellow bloggers and audiences surely makes you a better blogger.
Just like in normal offline life when you do have good relationships with everyone in your society people consider you as a good person, similarly in blogging world when you have good relationships with your audience and fellow bloggers then you are considered as a better blogger.
9. Always ready to help
Helping others surely help you build credibility, audience, fans, followers and many more which makes you a better blogger. Help everyone as much as you can!
10. Forget Ego
Never have ego in blogging! Even if you get success in this blogosphere, never show ego and always stay down to earth as there is need of good and sensible guys not the egoistic ones.
