Writing quality articles
I use to think writing articles are very simple. But, it is not easy when you started writing it. There is lot of patience required to write an article. Yes, copying articles from other blogs is easy to post in your blog. But, search engines penalize the website with copied content. So, always write original and quality content in your blog. This is very important to gain traffic to your blog. If your blog post is original, your reader will share your post with others and will also subscribe your blog. But, if you have a copied content, they will ignore and never visit your blog. So, always stick to the originality. Write one article in a week but should have quality. There should not be any discount in quality.
This is also sometimes difficult for bloggers. There are two types of backlinks, no-follow and do-follow. No-follow backlinks are not that much important, but do-follow backlinks from other blogs increases your blog rank and performance. Backlinks you can get by commenting on other blogs, participating in forums, writing guest post , collaboration with other bloggers etc. Remember, other blogs only give their do-follow backlink when you build a trust factor with them. Once, the trust relationship is build, they will share do-follow links to your blog. Once, you have healthy backlinks to your blog, your blog ranking will increase. This will automatically bring your more traffic to your blog. Backlinks actually works as a reference.
Marketing is very important to build a brand. But, here we don’t have to do any advertisement which people mostly do. These days social networking sites are used widely for blog promotion. Yes, we also have to do the same. Create a profile in Facebook, LinkedIn, google plus etc. to share your blog content. Also, create a Facebook page of your blog, so that your readers like and read your updates on your page. Writing and posting an article will not be enough for getting traffic, you have to connect with people of same interest also. Join Facebook groups, LinkedIn groups of your blog interest and share content in those groups. Interact with people and ask them what they want to read.
