Whenever I write something, I learn something. In my previous blog, I have posted about the blog & its importance. Today we will see that how can we make our blog popular. I will share some common ways which you can apply to make your blog popular. These ways are simple to implement & they always work. Every day, thousands of blogs are being updated on Google & every blogger wants to make their blog popular on search engines, it’s a dream of every blogger. I know it’s not easy & can’t be done overnight. There are 6 ways to get your blog popular in the right way.
1. Keep your blog design unique
Every blog & website should have a unique & impressive design. Always use a good looking & a simple theme for your blog. There are a lot of templates you can find online. You can also buy these from professionals. If your blog design is impressing then visitors will attract & they will like your blog because people are attracted to something that is unique & interesting. Now to be truthful, if your blog has a poor design, I’ll never go through it & if by mistake, I visit it, I might spend a few seconds. Now look at this blog. How cool is it?
2. Open comment & share button
Always open comments on your posts & reply them regularly. It will make the visitors active on your blog. Also comments on other blogs & leave your blog URL, if people will read interesting comment then they will visit & share your blog definitely. This will help spread the word about your blog. This is another great way to increase your popularity.
3. Submit your blog to search engines
Once you’ve shaped your blog, now you have to submit it to the main search engines including Google, Yahoo, Bing & Ask. After you let the search engines know that your blog actually exists & has new information to share, your pages will get indexed faster & blog will begin to appear in search results. It is important to submit your site’s pages to all the major search engines because even if the other engines have low traffic than Google, millions of users they still have. When you submit a URL or domain name to the search engines, it could take two to four weeks to get indexed.
4. Use social media effectively
Now days I think almost every blogger has a twitter account. Why bloggers only actually everyone has a twitter account & they use it to broadcast their life events & etc. When you publish new content on your blog, the information only reaches your current users, but social media is a great way to spread out your blog. So build your social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube & Google plus etc. to promote your exciting new content & increase traffic to your site. Make a Facebook fan page, promote & update it daily, you can join this Facebook page to your blog. Use a Twitter timeline to deliver quality traffic to your blog. People follow you because they are interested in sharing things with you. They are most likely willing to check it out, what you tweet.
5. Add your blog to other blog communities
Blog communities & directories are also a good idea for making your blog popular. Other bloggers are regularly checking out these communities for information & networking. There are many communities you can submit your blog to but it’s better to attach with the ones which are famous & have a decent Google PR. Add your blog to blog directories & become an author of popular posts. Invite some online communities for visiting your blog, but in a good way.
6. Be consistent & Blog frequently
Consistency with your blog is the long term key to your blog’s success. Do not just blog one time in a week & expect people to check in every day. Your readers are starving for information & they wait to see something new, fresh & valuable on your blog frequently.
If you post randomly, you will lose your viewers & once they’re gone, they may be gone forever. If you don’t want to blog every day, one way to overcome this problem is to use planned posts that go live in a given day & at a certain time. This will free you up from the task of daily blogging.
