6. Always Ping After Posting
This is what you need to do after every post. Remember, always ping your blog. This is to make sure that search engine spider 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 engine. A site which always updated is will rank higher than a site that seldom updates. This will also help you tell your subscribed readers that you’ve published a new post.

7. On Page optimization
You can do this very easily. You can bold of italic your keywords that you want to optimize for in every of your posts. This is a strategy to that can help you increase your ranking in search engine. For example, if you are targeting keywords like make more money online, then you can bold those words. Just like what I did here on my blog. Although on page optimization is less important than off
page optimization (Number of links). But on page optimization still is a factor that will affect your search engine ranking. This is a very simple step that you can take. So be sure to bold or italic your keywords in your blog content. There are still many other on page optimization you could do, 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 as blogging tips, so I included it here in The Ultimate Blogging Tips. You know, a blog is something like a diary, just that it is in electronic form. A diary is something that you should write down everyday, so goes for blogs. You should always publish new posts in your blog. The best is everyday, but if you’re busy, then go for at least 5 posts a week. This is what most people do with their blogs, post regularly. If you don’t have any topics to write on, simply use the search engines or any article directories to look for your topics. 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 about this in my previous post, 10 Common Blogging Mistakes. In fact, all the points in that post can be inserted here. Why do you need an “About” section? Very simple, you want your readers to know more about you. And if you’re promoting products on your blog, a brief profile of yourself will definitely increase the credibility of your blog and products. Readers and visitors will trust your products more if they know more about you, right? By the way, you can consider including your photo in your blog as well. I’m going to 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 goes into their mind is that they will think that your blog is about your personal life. Most people don’t know that blogs can be used for money making purposes. So, what I’m going to tell you is that, because content will be your main reason why visitors coming to your blog. Therefore you should have a friendly content, write using simple language. You want to be friend with your readers and not that buyers-sellers relation. Don’t make your blog too formal, a warm friendly feeling blog is a good blog. So you get me, write in plain language just like you always talk to your friends. It will be even better if you can write in that language that a 7-year-old child can understand you. This will make sure that your readers understand what you’re going to tell them.
