In very short and simple words, to create a successful blog, you need to be ‘Unique’. Try to provide something unique to your readers then it will increase your chance of getting succeeded.
Now, let us understand this more precisely.
There are more than 3 lakhs blogger using the Yoast SEO plugin on their blog. Yoast is the best SEO plugin to make your blog SEO friendly and successful.

Write Content Rich Blogs
I know, there is nothing unique in this tips. But before making any conclusion, I request you to please read the complete article first.
So, the first way to make your blog super powerful is- ‘Write Content Rich Blog Posts on your blog‘.
But a question may arise? What is Content Rich blog posts?
Actually, there is no concrete definition of this. Different blogger has defined it in different ways. When it comes to content rich blog posts, they will suggest you different ways like proper keywords research, catchy headlines etc.
But, have you ever wonder? If everyone starts implementing all those mentioned ways then who will win the match?
Further, all those different ways are already in the market, then why don’t all bloggers are making money with their blog?
Actually, this is because the problem is different. Please note, by a different problem, it does not mean, all those techniques are wrong. Of course, those techniques are very important to build a successful blog.
But, besides these techniques, it also needs additional things called ‘Uniqueness’.
I know, practically, it is not possible to write unique blog posts daily. Hence, in this case, What should be done?
Don’t worry. We have a solution for this. If you can’t write the unique content then instead start writing descriptive and long posts.
Wait. If you are thinking of writing a long post consisting 1000 to 2000 words then you are on the wrong track. If by writing 2000 words blog posts, one can get successful then there are many bloggers who are writing such longs posts before you.
So, What should be done here. Simple, do something unique. Don’t stand in the queue. Do something odd and get out of the row.
So, the best way to make your blog popular is to start writing very long blog posts say 5000 to 6000 keywords.
This is because I am sure you have not seen any blog writing such long posts. So, start writing such a long post and get out of a queue.
Just imagine. You owned a blog containing 100 blog posts with 5000 words. Don’t you like it? Of course, Yes. Similarly, Google and other search engines also like such descriptive articles.
Long posts mean detailed answers and lots of keywords and hence there are the higher chances that your article will rank on the first page for more than one keywords.
Next, if you write a long post then you will get enough time to express emotion and knowledge. It will be easy for you to describe and making your users understand things easily.
In simple words, if you write long posts then it will be definitely useful to you. It will not have any harmful impact on your blog or site.
I bet you, just go and check the blog of any successful blogger, their blog posts will be definitely too long then the industry standard. If possible then just try to check out, how long your competitor is writing blog posts?
And, if you want to beat him in the competition, then try to write a blog longer than him.
Still not convinced? Check out the below-attached graph, showing the relationship between blog posts ranking and length of the posts.
This graph clearly shows- website ranking on the first position has a number of words as compared to the following positions.
You can also check the same personally using Google Search. All you need is do a google search and check out the total number of words used in each and every website ranking on the first page of the google. I am sure, you will get the same results.
Now, just imagine. You have written an article consisting 5000 to 6000 words, then definitely it will rank in the first position. This is because there is no other site writing such long posts. Right?
Exactly. That is what I am trying to teach you. Hence, now onwards start writing long posts on your blog. Of course, initially, you will face problem but slowly you will learn how to write a long blog post.
Social Media Sharing
Nowadays, almost all bloggers are using social media sites to promote their content. So, What’s a new thing?
Yes, I agree. Today, every blogger is using social media sites to promote their blog. But, have you ever wonder? Which social sites they are using?
Maybe, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Right?
Next, If I think more forward then in addition to the above three social sites then may also use Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
Basically, the blogger uses these six social media sites to promote their content and blog.
But do you know? According to Wikipedia, there are more than 200 major social media sites. Remember, this is only the major social sites. Besides these 200, there are many other small social sites.
So, the question is, are you promoting your content on all those 200 sites? Of course, your answer will be big ‘No’.
Practically, it is not possible to manage an account on all those 200 sites.
I agree with your point but don’t you think, even using only 6 social media sites are not enough? Just go and check, your successful competitors will be available everywhere.
So, if you want to create a super-rich blog then try to promote your blog on more number of social media sites. Try to take the benefits of all social media sites available free.
I know, now you are wondering, What are the benefits of social media for businesses? To get this answer, please read below.
- A large number of Target users are available.
- Drive free traffic to your site or blog
- Build free high-quality backlink for your blog or site.
- Branding and Customer Supports etc.
I know it is practically not possible to manage so many social media networks. But, please note that -- I am not insisting on using all available social media sites. I know, only a fool can think of it. But, I am telling to promote your contents beyond facebook, twitter, Google Plus, Instagram and Linkedin.
Next, if you think you can’t manage more social media sites then Why don’t you take the help of Automation?
You can automate your social media activities using free or paid tools available online. Here, I will suggest checking IFTTT once. IFTTT ( If this then that) is a free online tool that can automate your social media activities and many more. You will find the complete review of the tool at the below link.
Add Schema and Structured Data
The next way to boost the performance of your blog is adding schema to your blogs. By adding schema and structured data to your blog, you can improve the visibility of your blog or site.
I have seen a blog with scrap content ranking on the first page. The reason, it has Review Schema enabled on it. Next, the blog owner has manipulated the review count as 216,
Hence, Google is showing its post on the first page assuming 216 reviews on the site. I know this is not the correct way to rank your site.
But, just imagine, If you really have hundreds of review on your blog posts, then who can stop your blog posts from ranking on the first page.
So, add schema to your blog and start collecting review. After a few months, when you collect enough reviews, your post will automatically start ranking on the first page of the google.
For your information, there are various kinds of schema available on google. For example, Review, Blog Posting, Q&A, Recipes etc. Add all those schemas that are related to your site. It will definitely boost the visibility of your site or blog.
At last, I request you to please refer the below article to get complete information on Schema and Structured data on your site or blog.
Get 100% Pages Indexed in Search Engine
The next way in the list is getting your all webpages indexed in the search engine. Ensure you have zero error in your Google Webmaster. Whether is mobile, AMP or Web, there should be zero error in the search console account.
This is because the question of ranking your blog post will arise only if your post is indexed in the search engine. Just imagine, your blog post is not indexed and available on the search engine. In this case, with whom, you will compete to rank your post?
Of course, no indexed post means, 0% possibility to rank your blog post.
Make sure, after writing every new article on your blog, you do not forget to ping it and submit indexing request in the webmaster. To submit indexing request, all you need to do is paste your URL in the given box and hit enter.
Next, click on the ‘Request Indexing ‘ option and wait for the confirmation.
That’s it. Once you received the confirmation, you can go back and check your article on the google. I am sure, it will get indexed in the search results.
At last, make sure you have ‘NIL’ error and issue in your indexed page. If there is any error then resolve it immediately.
If you need any help in resolving your error then feel free to contact me. Since, last 6 months, I am working on the same project only. I have made my blog 100% indexed in the Google Search Engine.
Trust me, I am aware of all the problems that are related to indexing and I can help you in getting your blog indexed easily.
For proof, you can check out the below-attached image of my Google Webmaster Sitemap Indexing page.
Indexing webpages in the search engine do not mean you close your eyes and get all your blog posts or webpages indexed in the search engine.
In that case, you will face the duplicate content issue on your site. Actually, there is a way to get your blog indexed in the search engine. For example, do not allow the search engine to index your tags and category pages.
If you are using WordPress, then we strongly suggest installing the Yoast SEO plugin on your site. Next, refer below article to configure your plugin.
The configuration given at the above link will take care of everything. It will save your blog from getting hit by the duplicate content penalty.
At last, make sure, you can carry out the same activity at all search engine. Remember, creating a webmaster account on Google will not serve your purpose. You need to create a webmaster account on all other search engines also.
Create an account on an available search engine and submit sitemap on it.
Be a Great Contributor and Work Together
The last but the most important way to build a successful blog is through contribution and working together.
I bet you, just go and check online, all the successful bloggers are working together. They will promote each other instead of competing.
Have you ever wonder? Why?
Simple. They have known the power of ‘We‘.
Successful bloggers known there is nothing in fighting with each other. Instead, promote each other’s content and make money out of it.
For example, Google will hate my blog if I promote my content but if in case someone else promotes it then Google will love my site.
Similarly, they also publish their interview on each other websites.
Let us understand this with one more example.
What will happen, if three beginners having 1000 followers each comes together?
Of course, they will have more number of followers say 3000 and will make more money from it.
So, I strongly suggest working together.
Note: In the above paragraph, I am suggesting to work together. But this does not mean you should start a blog in a partnership.
Please note, there is a huge difference in working together and partnership. I strongly oppose starting a blog in partnership. Instead, find someone else and promote your work on each other blog.
In the second case, you will get free backlinks, free followers and free guest posts or interviews for your blog.
Trust me, this strategy will definitely work. It really makes an impact if someone else is endorsing you.
At last, if you really want to create a successful blog then comes together. Remember, you alone can beat the blog already available in the first position.
Just look at the opposition parties in India. When they got completely defeated in the election 2014, they come together to defeat Modi in the next election.
The same logic works here. You have two choices. Close down your blog with 1000 followers or come together and make money out of 3000 followers.
That’s it. If you follow the above mentioned different ways then I am sure it will definitely boost the performance of your blog and it will gain visibility in the search results.
If you have anything unique on your blog either good or worst then your blog will definitely get noticed. Trust me, after implementing the above-mentioned ways, your blog will get popular and successful.
