Blogging some say can be very easy, but on the other hand to make your blog popular worldwide it can be very tough. You can however make it easier by following these 11 simple steps.
1. Add fresh content
If you consistently add new content you will not only attract regular readers but also the search engines. Try to add new content to your blog at least 3 times a week.
2. Optimize your content
Make sure you optimize the titles, paragraphs and links within your content. This means you must first do keyword research to incorporate keywords related to your content.
3. Include keywords in your tags
WordPress allows you to include tags below each post. Place your most popular keywords in these tags separated by commas.
4. Add meta tags
Use the headspace or seopack plug-in to add title and description meta tags to each post. Search engines place great emphasis on title tags that contain your keyword at the beginning.
The description meta tag is what visitors read about your site when they find it in the search engines. Make sure the description of your page will get the reader to click to your content.
5. Create internal links
An individual post won’t get much traction in the search engines unless you get links pointing to it. If you have related content from other areas of your blog create a text link (anchor text) within that post that links to your current content.
Your blog post ranking will increase in proportion to the number of links pointing to it.
6. Encourage commenting
Include questions within your content and encourage readers to leave a comment. This increases blog interactivity. Readers will see it’s an active blog and will want to read the comments and provide their own feedback.
7. Leave comments on other Blogs
Find Blogs that have content related to your own and write a comment that compliments their post or is in response to others’ comments. With each comment include a link back to your own blog.
8. Use track backs
A track back is a procedure for notifying the original blog poster that you have linked to their blog post from your blog. Create lots of track backs to popular blog posts from your own blog. This will encourage those you track back to do the same for you and will increase traffic to your site.
9. Submit to blog directories (there are many just type in Blog Directories
10. Submit RSS Feed to RSS Directories (same as above just search for RSS Feed Directories)
11. And last but not least subscribe to sites like Triond.
