Becoming a publisher and a writer of a blog can have many great rewards. While it is true that most blogs have a small following, talented bloggers and dedicated have been able to draw in the attention of millions of readers. No, that is not an exaggeration in any way, shape or form. Of course, you would have to work very hard at making your blog successful. That process starts with creating an actual blog.
How catchy is your tagline and header? This question is important because your blog header is usually the first thing visitors set eyes on when they come to your blog. A good way to create a good blog header is to ensure that it contains the ultimate benefit a visitor stands to get while on your blog.
I’m sure all of you have dreamed of attracting a thousand, five thousand, ten thousand, even up to one hundred thousand visitors to your blog each month. I know I have. Imagine what that would mean for your bottom line to drive traffic to your blog in those numbers.
But don’t just limit yourself to Google! Search anywhere people can talk about you– online blogs, news sources, forums, social media sites, etc. Making a plan to ensure you control page one of Google’s results and other sites was the most important part of taking control of our online presence and turning our reputation around. If this seems too daunting or you find you don’t have the time manage Google’s first page of results, you may want to hire a reputation manager to help you get this fine tuned like we did.
Many people wonder how you promote a blog. How do you get readers? Keep in mind what we’ve already mentioned. A blog is nothing more than a small website. It’s going to be indexed by Google, yahoo and Bing like any other website. Further, it will get indexed by some special blogging search engines as well. So the first thing to think about with your blog and all the posts you write is SEO.
When your blog begins to attract a solid following, you might think ‘Now it the time to launch another blog.’ A word of caution: This is where Post can get complicated.
The age of hype is over and if you are looking at a blog with flashy cars, houses and blink blinks surely its a tell tale sign its a blog of hype and nothing else. Always scan the content to see if its newsworthy stuff.
It’s this simple. I once saw a guy who wrote a software that explains these principles. The software will remind you of which step to take next. He charged over a hundred dollars for it, but garaunteed your money back if you didn’t hit the top 10 results on Google for your niche in a year. It’s a formula. Step-by-step instructions — that work.
