Tips for effective blogging

  • Consistency with posts.

    Search engines look for blogs with regular updates. Readers would find a blog that is updated regularly over one that isn't.

  • Useful information and quality content.

    Organize titles and text in an effective manner. Make sure the size of your post is not too long or too short.

  • Tags are a crucial part for your blog posts.

    Include tags that resemble the key words for each post.

  • Use themes that support the topic of your blog.

    Customize your theme with widgets, headers, graphics and a sidebar that is well organized for readers to have a user friendly experience.

  • Include an RSS feed

    So that readers can syndicate your blog, giving them easy access to check for updates and fresh content.

  • Comments!

    If you comment on someone's blog, you have "linked" yourself on a different page. Visitors of that website can click on your comment and it will redirect them to your blog! This is one of the most effective ways to drive traffic to your web space.
