Blogging itself isn’t that hard even when running a niche blog. But becoming and staying successful is a long and hard way to go. I would like to help you improving your blog and getting a returning audience.
Let’s see which mistakes new bloggers usually make.
1. You forget to update the blog
Creating new content that is worth beeing read is the hardest part of blogging. But delivering no content is the biggest mistake you can ever make. People will only return if they see a continuously updated site. Writing new posts takes a lot of time but it’s absolutely worth to invest.
2. People are not able to find you
It doesn’t make sense to write a blog for yourself so your audience needs to grow. Many people find new websites via google (or similar sites) so you have to optimize you content for search engines. There are different SEO-Plugins that help you placing the right amount of Keywords. Use them! Installing the plugin is not enough. You need to check every written text for it’s SEO related value.
3. You don’t connect with other blogs and bloggers
Commenting on other niche blogs helps to become known. It will increase the traffic on your site and will help people to recognize you. In addition you might see how your pagerank grows caused by the backlinks you create. But always keep in mind to create meaningful comments. Don’t write comments to to advertise your site – write to interact with other bloggers. If you are not used to manage a blog, have a look at experienced bloggers and try to learn how to become successful.
4. You don’t remain in your niche
Don’t try to overload you site with post that are not related to your topic. Focus on your niche and write high quality posts to inspire your followers.
5. You’re not making it simple
People don’t like complex texts. Write short significant posts.
There are many more thinks to look at but in my opinion those 5 are really common. But as you see there are a lot of mistakes you can easily avoid.
