So, Why Do Blogs Fail?
So, you heard all the hype about blogging for profits or making money online using blogs. And being a savvy business person, you rush out, go to blogger and sign up for your own account. And you blog away to your heart's content, writing the most amazing content in your minds eye on your bright, shiny new blog.
And you wait a week for those lovely dollars to role in. And … nothing. No money, not a red cent, nothing.
So you throw in the towel, this blogging for profit is nonsense. … Or is it?
Here we will discuss a few reasons why certain blogs do not achieve the level of success expected
Blogging Tip 1. Niche selection. Crucial to the success of your blog. You need to be niche targeted. Identify a group you want to cater to and focus your efforts on them. If your blog is about hairy noses, then stay focussed on hairy noses. The people who want to learn more about hairy noses will know they will find useful information on that subject at your blog, each and every time they visit. If your niche selection is too broad, you may end up being a 'Jack of all trades, master of none' It just will not be viable to get high quality information on a wide variety of subjects to paste on your blog. Also when you select a niche, be sure it is one that has a hungry market that you can plug into
Blogging Tip 2: Search Engine Optimization. Writing content for your blog is similar to writing content for a regular website. You need to ensure that each post is optimized for a certain keyword. If you do your SEO right then that post can rank well in the search engines for that particular keyword phrase. If you have 20 articles, then optimize 5 for one keyword phrase, another 5 for another keyword phrase related to your niche and so forth. Imagine the amount of free traffic this could get you from the search engines
Blogging Tip 3: Post frequently. There is a school of thought that says blog frequency should be every 6 hours. You can there understand understanding why blogging every other week just will not get you anywhere. You need to post frequently and you need to make sure that your articles are of the highest quality
Blogging Tip 4: A Clear Call to action. You must let your visitors know what you want them to do. If you want them to opt in to your email list, then say so on your site. 'Fill the box below to get the freebie and join my email list which gives you tons of free info. on whatever 'that is a clear call to action.
These are a few things you need to pay attention if you do not want your blog to fail.
