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 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 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 or italic the keywords you want to optimize for in every one of your posts. This is a strategy that 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 still is 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. There are still many other on-page optimizations 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 blogging tips, 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 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, 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, use the search engines or 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 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 that goes into their minds 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, I’m going to tell you that the content will be your main reason why visitors come to your blog. Therefore you should have friendly content, write using simple language. You want to befriend your readers and not that buyers-sellers relation. Don’t make your blog too formal, and 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. This will make sure that your readers understand what you’re going to tell them.
