Make Your Blog Successful
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Assuming you really want to create a successful blog, let us discuss these amazing tips below. So, shall I begin?
Know your Audience
This is the first step to build a successful blog. Basically, there are two important things which are involved in this.
First, you should know for whom you are writing?
Second, Stick to your Blogging Niche. Don’t Change it.
Let us understand this in details below.
Every blogger whether he or she is a beginner or expert needs to understand their audience first. The benefits are obvious. If they know for whom they are writing then it will help them to write a great piece of content and thereby retain their audience.
In simple words, it is just like a chef. If a chef knows for whom he is preparing food, then, of course, it will help him in preparing the menu. In absence of audience information, it may happen that he only prepare non-vegetarian dishes for vegetarian guests.
To avoid this kind of problem, it is always advisable to understand your audience first. If you know, who all are your audience then you can write a better article for them.
Hence, the very first thing that you need to do is collect as much as information you can collect about your audience.
Second, for creating a successful blog, stick to your blogging niche. Please do not change it. Changing a niche is never a good idea.
Many bloggers, just for the sake of driving more traffic to the blog, start accepting or writing blogs on multi-niche topics.
There are many bloggers who accept guest posts on multi-niche topics. Trust me, the multi-niche blog is never a good idea. In fact, the multi-niche site is never an SEO friendly website.
Of course, in the short term, it will drive good traffic to your blog but in the long term, it will not rank on the first page of the search results.
Let us understand this with an example.
It is a known fact. If you own a multi-niche blog then over all your audience base will be larger. Hence, you will get more traffic initially as compared to a single niche blog.
Just because of this, many bloggers get attracted toward this and start a multi-niche blog instead of micro niche blogging site.
But, when it comes to Search Engine like Google. Google doesn’t like Multi Niche site. This is because Google loves expertise knowledge instead of generic. Hence, whenever you check the first of the search results, you will find micro niche sites only.
Micro niche sites are the subpart of the border niche. For example, Baby Health is a micro niche site in the Health and Fitness niche.
When you are writing on a micro topic, Google loves it and thereby it will boost the visibility of your site.
Next, do not get easily discarded if your blog is not getting enough traffic. It generally happens, when after working so hard, if your blog does not succeed in attracting traffic to your blog, you start thinking about your blogging niche and easily gets attracted to other niches.
Though your blog would be on Travelling, you will start thinking, Why don’t write on Marketing and Earn Money online. Just see, lots of people are making money on it.
Next, after working on a new niche, when you don’t have anything to write. You once again start thinking of another niche and then once again change it.
This kind of behavior is not a good idea.
Hence, please think twice before selecting a niche for your blog. Make sure you like your niche and you will have enough content on it.
At last, I am sure if you take care of these two things then both your site and audience networks will be well worth to make money from your blog.
Content Is Still King of the Game
No matter, what you do. If you don’t have the great content then it is very difficult to build a successful blog.
Content is still the king of the game. Both, your users and search engines like the good content.
Hence, always attempts should be made to write a content rich article on your blog. For your convenience, I have mentioned out few amazing tips below.

But, trust me. The particular blog is ranking on the first page for the most competitive keyword that is for ‘Google Adsense’.
Actually, the guy ( one who owned the blog) has added review schema on his blog and showing wrong review counts on the blog posts.
He is showing the same review counts and percentage for all the blogs posts. He is showing 216 reviews received and 92% reviews are positives for all blog posts.
Please note, at no point of time, I am supporting the wrong use of schema. This is because Google is very intelligent. One day, Google will catch this trick and may ban this blog from its index.
In fact, Google has already started removing such websites from its search results and giving manual spam warning in its webmaster account.
At last, it is always advisable to make proper use of schema and thereby boost your SEO performance.

Hence, just add the schema markup code and increase your site performance.
Social Media Sharing
If someone asks me, How to Increase ranking without building more backlinks then this would be the answer.
By making proper use of the social media networking site, one can increase ranking in less time.
Sharing content on social media networks, not only provides opportunities to build free backlinks but also promote your content and drive free traffic to your site.
Initially, we suggest creating an account on two or three social media networks for promoting your content but once you get settled, it is always advisable to open an account on almost all social media networks.
I know practically it is not possible to manage an account on all social media sites. There are more than 200 social networking sites available online. But, in this case, you can take the help of IFTTT to automate your social media activities.
By automation, you can manage more than one social media network at one go.
But, these strategies will work only if you have a good number of followers on social sites. It will not work on a new website or blog with less number of followers.

Note: If you planning to automate your social media activities then please make sure you do not miss out any important message from your customers or readers. Many times it happens that your social activities are on automation mode and you are not aware of any comments made on your shared posts. Hence, you do not reply to that comment and thereby you lose your customer or readers.
Hence, it is very important that you check all these social media sites once in a day to reply to comments and message if any.
Publish Blog Posts Consistency
What is the ideal Blog Post Frequency? When you start a blog, this is the first question that will come to your mind.
Ideally, there is no such frequency. It does not matter whether you post one blog per day or week. The only thing that you need to ensure its consistency. Make sure you maintain your schedule for posting blogs.
If you are posting once a week then maintain the same frequency. Please do not change it. If you really want to retain your readers then this consistency is very important.
Please note, posting more blog posts does not mean your blog will start ranking higher in the search results. Google loves quality not quantity.
Hence, instead of writing two blogs, I strongly suggest writing one quality and long descriptive blog post.
The same logic also applied to your social media posts. For better results, please make sure you are maintaining consistency while posting on social media sites.
Hence, to make your blog from zero to hero, ensure you maintain consistency while publishing blog posts on your site.
