Actionable ITEMS to STart implEMENting To Be Successful While BLOGGING

actionable items to start implementing in your blog to be successful


I have found that many people want to start blogging at one point in their lives and it just seems like a big puzzle to solve for them.

Much time I  have come across questions like :
HOW DO I CREATE A BLOG WHEN AM NOT TECH SAVVY?

HOW, WHERE DO I GET IDEAS TO BLOG ABOUT?

HOW DO I DISCOVER POST IDEAS THAT WILL ATTRACT MUCH AUDIENCE?

And my answer to this is just create it, forget about any other thoughts that might be cropping up in your mind.

Most successful bloggers today are just like you when they began their blogging journey and they never knew that they will make it someday.

Here in my post I will be sharing several actionable items to start implementing in order to build a successful blog which I will share with you later.

Most successful bloggers today have different stories to tell when it comes to how they achieved their goals. This implies that their is no sure way to becoming a successful blogger as the situations are different with each individual.

However, there are actionable items to follow when you want to build a successful blog. These items are important in order to fast track your progress in your blogging life. These are rules that you must implement, practice and do consistently. 

I will be listing the items here below in my post.




ACTIONABLE ITEM 1

DONT STOP CREATING QUALITY POSTS THAT ARE FULLY PACKED WITH INFORMATIONS.

First what's  definition of quality blog posts.

Quality blog posts  are contents that are unique and also contain vital informations that you can find no where else.

That's my little definition of quality blog posts

Yes don't stop creating contents that will go viral. When you make quality post you are boosting your chances of becoming successful. I used this as my first action item because it is the most important item on my list. When you create the quality contents and use your keywords properly , the search engines will reward you by ranking your contents easily. 

Let's dive dip a little bit , I used to have a friend who is also new to blogging, here is what he did when he created his first blog which is centered on entertainment, he copies content from the big guys in his niche, and post on his blog. He did this for about a month and the maximum traffic he was getting on his blog was not more than 20 pageviews, and he was frustrated with his blog in such a situation.

But after a period he  discovered that his blog has to be unique in order to stand out from the rest.

When coming up with blog posts, put yourself in the position of your audience , and look at what you will want the author to lay more emphasis on , what this will help you do is to unlock ideas that will make a for a great blog post. 

I will be making future posts that will explaining more on how to create quality blog posts but you can make do with this for now.








ACTIONABLE ITEM 2

PLAN OUT A PROMOTION METHOD BEFORE EACH AND EVERY BLOG POST.

Conducting research on how you will want to promote your posts when you hit the publish button is also one vital item on my list.

Unfortunately we have publishers who just who hit the publish button and wait for traffic to start coming.

Many quality blog posts have gone unread as a result of this. Share your post on social media, you can also run promotional ads. Doing this will gain your blog more exposure and also much boost in traffic.



ACTIONABLE ITEM 3

USE CAPTIVATING AND ATTRACTIVE HEADLINES FOR YOUR BLOG POSTS.

Headlines also have important roles to play when it comes to blogging, with an attractive headline, you are attracting more audience.

But the opposite gives you no audience even if your contents are fully packed with informations.

A quality post will go unread when its headline is unattractive and not able to bring in your audience.

Here is a post of what Robert Van tongeren has to say regarding  ways to exploit human nature and write amazingly appealing headlines  that will attract much audience.

There are many tools that you can use to generate content headlines like seopressor. Go leverage this tools and start coming up with appealing headlines for your next blog post.


ACTIONABLE ITEM 4

START BLOG COMMENTING, DONT HESITATE FOR ONCE.

Are you wondering why this is on my list. I know, it is understandable why you would be suprised. Start leveraging the power of blog commenting and grow your blog.

Leaving a captivating comment on your competitors blog post help draws in attention and audience from your competitors blog unfortunately many are found to be overlooking this.
Though it doesn't contribute to your domain authority nor quality backlinks but blog commenting is powerful such that leaving a good comment in your competitors blog will attract the audience to want to visit your blog.
Chances are that they are looking for a solution to a problem which you have mentioned in your comment.Here is an example of a good comment : 
"Yes blog commenting is really an SEO strategy everyone should embrace.I recently ran an audit on my webmasters tool, guess what I found? I got a backlink simply by commenting on your blog (with perfect link juice).So in my opinion I think blog commenting is really working…Thanks for sharing"
Now this is what I call a good blog comment. Here he is stating what he has learnt from the post, and also giving more information on the post being discussed.
What do you think will happen to his blog, more of the audience will get curious and want to see for themselves what he does on his blog.

ACTIONABLE ITEM 5

DON'T STOP BUILDING QUALITY BACKLINKS

Backlinks are one of the most mentioned word in the world of SEO(search engine optimization).

This is no surprise as it very essential to building a successful blog. Backlinks are the backbone of any successful website you can find out there. 

However when it comes to building backlinks, you have to be careful the kind of backlinks you build to your blog. 

A black hat backlink can get you into the blacklist of search engines and that would be doing you no good at all as you would not rank on serp listings. 
Here are my tips on building that will boost your rankings:

1. Build Backlinks from authority sites.
2. Make sure the site your are linking to is trusted by search engines. 
3. Use your anchor text intelligently as the wrong usage of it can land you into google penalty.
4. Make sure links coming to your sites are relevant.




ACTIONABLE ITEM 6

TARGET LOW COMPETITION KEYWORDS.

Low competition keywords should be your target keywords if your blog is new and not yet getting enough traffic.
You should be targeting low competition keywords that will help you rank faster in search engines more especially long tail keywords.
Long tail keywords account for most of the traffic on search engines.

It contains detailed steps you need to low competition keywords that will boost your search traffic.


ACTIONABLE ITEM 7

BE PATIENT WHILE BLOGGING. DONT EVER RELENT.

This is one very vital item on my list because this is where most bloggers fail.
Blogging is not a get rich quick job where you just start making money instantly. Getting to that height comes with a lot of patience and consistency.
At times, things don't have to go the smooth way as with want it but what will keep you going is being patient enough.

But before giving up, here are questions out should ask yourself.

1. Am I trying new things
2. Am marketing my blog in order to gain more exposure.
3. Have I contacted a seo expert to help conduct seo audit on my blog.

Have you done all this, then you just have to be optimistic. There will always be a time that you will break through.

I will be concluding my post here on actionable items you should start implementing  in your blogging journey to be successful.

To ensure a successful career in blogging, you should implement this items above and you would start seeing good results in no of time. There are much more that still needs to be added to my list which I will expantiate more on in future posts.

  3. I love this post as I need ti implement one or two of listed methods. I must confess that blogging is not an easy task but what one should engage in with good plans. I'll try out the back link stuff but does it entail only linking to other blogs from your blog or there are other technicalities involved? I believe in using keywords too but which keyword tool do you suggest? Good job!
