Many bloggers want to achieve success so badly that they end up getting confused by trying so many methods that end up harming their sites more than propel them towards success. All blogger are different in one way or another. Bloggers are differentiated based on target market because a blogger in fashion will market differently from a blogger blogging about international law. However, in some cases, a marketing method that works for a blog on law might also work well for a fashion blog. In this post, I am going to show you tips on how to become a better and successful blogger on any niche by taking your little time to address certain key issues.
- Cut off what doesn’t work for you
There are many things that bloggers put on their site with the intention of making their sites appealing to their readership. These things include widgets, affiliate links, and banners, as well as advertisement all, put in one position. You will be surprised that many successful bloggers have simple looking blogs. This is because they spend much of their time in finding out what works and what does not work.
You are supposed to make your blog appealing at the same time users must have easy access to your content. Whenever a blogger puts so many things in one place the readership is normally distracted and left in a dilemma to decide what to choose and they may end up choosing something they did not want hence your blog will have lost a prospective buyer or readership. Always ensure that your blog is always simple and structured to facilitate easy navigation through your content.
- Modify your permalinks
Permalinks play a key role in Google because it describes what is contained in a specific post. Search engines use permalinks to pull out information that is related to the keywords a user is typing on a search engine. This builds your search engine optimization and helps you rank higher in the search engine. Normally, search engines do not know what is in your content but crawl to find keywords that closely match those that a user has used to search for a particular content. Therefore, you need to help the search engines pick the exact information by using the simplest way for it to understand and this is by modifying your permalinks.
- Maximize your headline and description
I wrote an article a week ago about how to rank first on Google. I clearly elaborated how title and description can help boost your search engine optimization through going directly and describing whatever your title is all about. For instance, if you want to write about “top secret for top bloggers” make sure that the secret appears in the first paragraph. This helps a user click on your site because the title gives a broader look into a subject matter while the description narrows down to the points. A user is more likely to click on a site that clearly describe the content than a good title with a bad description or one that does not come close to the points that a user is looking for. Make sure you read more about the article on how to rank first on Google for more information about this aspect of blogging that will increase your visibility.
- Make good use of images
Images also play a key role in your search engine optimization. To ensure that you always don’t waste this opportunity is by naming the title tag of your image with the keywords that describe your post. People use images to search for a particular content and those who describe their images enjoy the benefits of search engine optimization that comes with images that are well described in a post.
- Use landing pages
Landing pages are great when used correctly; the main purpose of a landing page is to focus the attention of a reader into taking a specific action. This is important for collecting emails and boosting sales. Some themes come with built-in landing pages that allow you to customize depending on your interests to make your readership get much from your blog.
