Blogging Tips:

Write the Best Possible Content even if it is not every day
Writing often is advice that most bloggers come across on other sites.
The reason why it is popular advice is due to the fact that it is based
on the assumption that posting often demonstrates that you are committed
to what you do. This results in visitors and readers coming back to your
blog to see and read about what you’re up to. Posting too often may
sometimes have the opposite effect. Visiting a blog for the second time,
readers might be looking for the same post to re-read or something
similar. Forcing your readers to go through a bunch of new posts, 1, 2
sometimes 3 a day might be a deterring factor. In these cases I will just
use a search engine to find what I am looking for. Furthermore, the 2nd
and 3rd posts of the day are usually of lesser quality due to writers
fatigue and therefore less interesting. Instead of posting several times
a day just post once a day or just whenever you think you have something
interesting or useful to write about. Put some though in your posts, give
your readers a reason to come back and always avoid bombarding them with
clutter. Focus your effort on a few good topics.

Optimize your Blog for Search Engines
Most bloggers out there start blogging the wrong way. After they start
blogging they do so by relying primarily on social networks for traffic.
Social network traffic is great but it rarely converts into money. The
best traffic to make money is search engine traffic. A blogging tip
everyone should get a chance to read and re-read is that search engine
traffic will be the most profitable kind. Although Social networking is
an easy way to generate traffic you should always spend some time to make
sure your blog and posts are properly optimized to rank well in search
engine result pages. Take a few hours a week and perform a few scheduled
and simple search engine optimization tasks.
Blogging SEO
In your blog
Make sure your titles are relevant to your topic, make sure you refer to
your topic keywords throughout your posts, and make sure you tag your
posts properly. Also make sure to interlink your posts with older
relevant posts. Always use keywords you are interested in ranking high
for and keep these keywords concentrated around a specific topic.
From other sites
Get as many one way inbound links with anchor text as you can; by many I
mean thousands. Think of your site or your blog as a property you
acquired in the country side. After you start building you will need to
make a road, get it hooked up with power and so one. Backlinks are the
essentials your blog or site will need to prosper. Don’t only rely on
other bloggers to link to you. Create backlinks to your blog by
submitting articles in databases. Write a few 500 word articles on
similar topics you write about in your blog, add back links with ancor
text and start submitting. Ideally you should submit a few articles to
thousands of directories for every post you write. There is software
available to help you do this. Do the same thing for every post. You can
easily create thousands of one way links your blog and particular posts
in less than a few hours.
Social bookmarking also works great for this purpose. Make sure you get
your posts bookmarked at as many bookmarking sites as possible.
Once a week or once every two weeks, use <a

traffic.html"/>Google Webmaster Tools</a> and see which posts of yours
showed up in search engine result pages. Go back to them and optimize
them. Add more keywords, make the title catchier, tag them better or even
elaborate on certain things you wrote and think will help them rank
better in searches.
