Are you working on your blog but not getting any traffic? And all your efforts are getting wasted. Then here I will be sharing the mistakes that must be avoided in blogging.
As a beginner we make many mistakes and we learn from those mistakes. But we have take care of those mistakes and remember not to repeat it again.
In blogging there are a lot of things to learn. By applying the right strategies only you can become a successful blogger.
Here in this article I will be talking about the common mistakes that a newbie blogger must avoid.
1. Selection Of Niche
Before starting a new blog you must select a profitable niche, without proper niche selection your blogging journey may be difficult.
Niche selection is not a tough task but it can be only possible when you have a proper guidance. That’s why to help you I have published two articles related to the niche selection and niche. So, don’t forget to check out those articles.
In these two articles I have mentioned all those things that you should do and dont do.
2. Proper Keyword Research
When we select a niche most of the time we ignore keyword research. It is really a huge mistake that we often do when we begin as a beginner.
Proper research of the keyword also very much important than publishing quality content.
Keyword Research is important because without research about it you will not be able to know about the Power of that Keyword.
This mistake sometimes becomes very dangerous and we think my blog is not having any traffic.
It happens when you go with high competition keyword or very low search volume keywords.
So at the end I would like to tell you that after niche selection don’t ignore keyword research.
3. Regular Article Publishing
If I am not wrong then I know you must be publishing articles regularly with consistency. But there are some bloggers due to some problems they’re not able to publish articles regularly. That reason may be anything.
Be an Action Taker Not An Excuse Maker
Have you ever asked this question to yourself?
- Am I Satisfied With This Article?
- Am I Providing The Best Content To The Readers?
If your answer is positive then it is pretty good. But if it not so try to improve as much as you can. And don’t focus on quantity, only focus on the quality of the content.
This happens when you start blogging just for making money not to provide genuine information.
Many newbie thinks that Google will rank each and every every articles because I am publishing regular content.
Then my friend let me inform you something, Google filter out quality article and rank only worthy contents. You see there are millions of articles get published each day.
And the AI (Artificial Intelligence) of Google is so smart to choose the Best content from the list of millions.
Google don’t care about your effort because they want to give their readers the best result they are searching for.
At the end I would like to say “Only Focus On Quality, Not On Quantity“.
4. On-Page SEO
On-Page SEO is one of the major thing that you must follow and remember while writing articles.
But 2020 is a time when competition is so much, and it can be difficult to rank just by On-Page SEO.
2010-2017 were the time when ranking was not a much difficult task because at that time only a limited number of people were working on a niche.
But at the present time along with the On-Page You Should also focus on the Off-Page SEO.
10 Things To Remember For On-Page SEO
- SEO Title (With Focus Keyword)
- Meta Description
- Keyword Density
- Heading + Sub-Heading
- Short Paragraphs (2 – 3 line)
- Use Lists
- Images (Alt Text)
- Internal + External Linking
5. Off-Page SEO
Ranking any articles with the help of Off-Page SEO is not hard but only when you link with the relevant and authority sites.
For example your site is about Music and you are taking link from Recipe Sites. Here this link will not be much effective because the niches are completely different from each other.
So never link with low authority sites and non relevant sites ☺️.
5 Things To Remember For Off-Page SEO
- Link Building
- Social Sharing
- Guest Post
- Forum Post
At this time most of the blog is ranking with the help of Off-Page SEO only.
6. Content Promotion
The only thing to get traffic easily and fastly on website is content promotion. In 2020 it is the most effective thing that many bloggers do.
I know in beginning you may not be having much investment to run ads for promoting articles. But if you are able for that don’t make it too late.
Do you know one thing over 2 Millions article gets published each day and from those almost 50% of the articles even don’t get a single traffic.
Now you have to decide that you want to stay in which 50% category.
If you’re giving time to write quality articles then also go with promoting articles.
Always remember this focus 40% on writing articles and 60% on promoting them.
At the I will suggest you to promote each and every article you publish.
If you’re following these rules I’m sure you are going to rule this blogging industry.
