It was amazing to learn a new thing every other day. SEO, keywords, back-links, guest posts, Alexa rank, correct plug-ins use and what’s not. With a time you will know all these tricks and techniques.I learnt many things from fellow bloggers,own mistakes,others mistakes. Blogging needs lots of hard work, creativity and consistency. But it’s extremely satisfying to see your blog getting attention,required traffic, and appreciation. What I’ve learnt in the last 3 years as a blogger, I am putting here in the form of a post, with a hope to help others.

Do research and then select your niche carefully. As you’ll be putting your time and efforts on the blog, you should be well-prepared. And after selecting your niche to make sure to study before starting actual work. Writing in-depth articles helps you to stand out from the crowd and get more traffic.

And next is, try to be creative while putting forward your thoughts. Your blog is the one-stop destination for all your ideas, so put it in a very attractive manner. And as we all know content is the key to successful blogging, put your heart in creating beautiful content. Always ask yourself one question, “Why should readers come back to my blog?”  This will give you ideas from reader’s perspectives.It will help to select the most searched topics to plan your blog posts.

So writing consistently will help you not only, to get good visibility from search engines but also to get many loyal readers. Try to post at least twice a week.

4. Always be SEO friendly


Make your blog SEO(Search engine optimisation) friendly for getting more visibility in search engines. For making your blog SEO friendly there are many tips and techniques available on the internet. Follow these SEO guides and get more traffic to your blog. I use YOAST WordPress plug-in for better SEO. As we all know that WordPress is the most widely used CMS, select your SEO plug-ins accordingly.

5. Get backlinks


This is one more important point for getting good website rankings for your blog. Try to get more backlinks for your blog from other quality websites, blogs. For achieving it, write guest posts for other websites. You can return a favour by accepting guest posts from them as well. Maintain a good relationship with fellow bloggers and help each other. Also, appreciate other’s work by putting comments on their website/blogs. It’ll give valuable back-links to your blog.

It’s equally  important to have your active social media presence. As nowadays social media is widely used the platform. Social media is very useful to spread the word amongst readers and helpful to get you more traffic. Post regularly about your work on the social media, to let readers know about it.

Then for monetising your blog, select affiliate marketing , sponsored posts, advertisements, Google Adsense or Amazon ads . While accepting sponsored posts for your blog, select it carefully. Make sure it’s related to your niche and beneficial for your readers.

  1. All these pointers are very important but the last point that your have said about monetizing is something bloggers ahould keep in mind. Sponsored posts looks very tempting and many times even experienced bloggers start accepting posts which are not related to their niche. It is very tempting for new Bloggers when they see such opportunities coming their way. I feel it is very important to stick to your niche.

  23. I agree with all the tips here. I wish I had someone to five these tips when I started blogging.
