Blogging Tips – The Ultimate Blogging Tips

6. Always Ping After Posting

This is what you need to do after every post. Remember, always ping your blog. This ensures that search engine spiders will always crawl your blog after you’ve updated it—search engines like sites that are always updated. Therefore, you must ‘ask’ the crawler to crawl your blog regularly. This will also help you improve your ranking in search engines. A site that is always updated will rank higher than one that seldom updates. This will also help you tell your subscribers you’ve published a new post. You can ping your blog here at Ping-o-Matic!

7. On-Page optimization

You can do this very easily. You can bold or italicize the keywords you want to optimize for in your posts. This strategy can help you increase your ranking in search engines. For example, if you target keywords like make more money online, you can bold those words, just like what I did here on my blog. However, on-page optimization is less important than off-page optimization (Number of links). But on-page optimization is still a factor that will affect your search engine ranking. This is a straightforward step that you can take. So be sure to bold or italic your keywords in your blog content. You could still do many other on-page optimizations, but this is for now.



8. Update Your Blog Regularly

I believe you’ve heard this over and over again. But since this is also considered a blogging tip, I included it here in The Ultimate Blogging Tips. A blog is something like a diary, just in electronic form. A journal is something that you should write down every day, so goes for blogs. You should always publish new posts in your blog. The best is every day, but if you’re busy, go for at least five posts weekly. This is what most people do with their blogs: post regularly. If you don’t have any topics to write on, use the search engines or article directories to look for your issues. But don’t copy other people’s content. Just the rough idea, and write with your own words.

9. Include An “About” Section

I’ve stressed this in my previous post, 10 Common Blogging Mistakes. All the points in that post can be inserted here. Why do you need an “About” section? It is very simple: you want your readers to know more about you. If you’re promoting products on your blog, a brief profile of yourself will increase the credibility of your blog and products. Readers and visitors will trust your products more if they know more about you. By the way, you can also consider including your photo in your blog. I will make this short because you can read the rest here in 10 Common Blogging Mistakes.

10. Use Simple Language

A blog is a site, a more user-friendly site. And if you tell your friends about your blog, the first thing that goes into their minds is that they will think your blog is about your personal life. Most people don’t know that blogs can be used for money-making purposes. So, I will tell you that the content will be the main reason visitors come to your blog. Therefore, you should have friendly content and write using simple language. You want to befriend your readers and not that buyers-seller relationship. Don’t make your blog too formal;; a warm, friendly blog is good. So you get me, write in plain language just like you always talk to your friends. It will be even better to write in that language that a 7-year-old child can understand. This will ensure your readers know what you’re going to tell them.
