Wondering what’s taking so long for the world to realize your blog is the bomb?
Take a look at Tim Soulo’s suggestions at Problogger to see if you’re hitting all these basic elements, which helped him grow his own blog an amazing 500% in six months.
Soulo elaborates each point with subpoints and specific examples, so be sure to check out the full article for the full checklist.
1. Write mind-blowing content
I know it’s been said thousands (if not millions) of times how much the quality of your content matters. But let me try and give you a deeper understanding of this matter.
- Poor content doesn’t get shared on social networks.
- Poor content doesn’t attract fans.
- Most free content is poor content.
- Even the content you pay for can be lame.
2. Get serious about SEO
People should be able to find your awesome articles. And Google is where they will search for them.
But you have to do quite a few things to make your articles rank well in Google.
On the photography blog, that I was talking about earlier, the traffic from Google was growing by 1015% each month. And surprisingly I didn’t do much to achieve that.
So what are the basics to get you started?
- Learn to pick relevant keywords.
- Learn to optimise your articles.
- Build links.
