How To Be A Blogging Idol Instead Of An Idle Blogger
In order to be successful in Search Engine Optimization is crucial that you continually test out the latest theories and concepts. Before I apply the latest SEO techniques on a client's website, I always test them on one of my own. To understand the application to blogs, and the application of SEO to blogs I decided to carry out the following test: I'd start a blog for every American Idol contestant. Using a pseudonym, I would blog each candidate until they were kicked off the show. Once the final 12 candidates were decided, I would increase the frequency of my posts. Since this was an SEO project I didn't intend to provide any insightful information into the candidates...I only wanted to "blurb" news articles that mentioned each contestant. The aim at the end of this project (besides learning valuable information) was to have 1-2 "sustainable" blogs in place that would generate huge traffic during the week leading up to the show's final day. About a week into working on the program, I discovered two things: Bo Bice Blog received a lot of traffic. Bo Bice Blog received considerably more traffic and improved rankings on search engines than other blogs I'd written. Bo Bice was the first Idol contestant in four years who absolutely rocked. I was incredibly hoping for Bo Bice to win. So, while keeping my SEO experiment going, I decided to really "blog" about Bo Bice. While doing this, I learned many valuable tips for creating a profitable blog that is able to generate lasting traffic, with many repeat visits. For more detail please visit>>> Beginners Lessons: You should have a clear focus The fastest method to get people to your site is to have an excellent search engine ranking. If you write about a lot of non-related subjects your blog won't get a good ranking for your primary keywords. Even if you don't know much about SEO but you are able to make a blog that can rank well in the search engines. Pick a niche and keep your posts on the topic. Select a keyword group related to your chosen topic and ensure you use these keywords prominently in your articles. Build a base of content If you don't already have an established audience the odds are that very few people likely to be reading your first blog posts, as they'll be difficult to find in either the blogosphere nor in search engine results. Thus, save your best content for when you've already built a steady stream website traffic. Blogs about newspaper articles are the best way to build up relevant content quickly. All you need to do is subscribe to Google news alerts to get relevant content that includes your top keywords. When you receive new content make a blog entry for each piece, and then an excerpt the relevant portion (making sure to credit the source) and then comment on the piece. This may not be engaging to your readers...but the objective here is to reach a point where you can start creating fresh, original content that people will actually read because your blog can be easily discovered. For more advanced novices, adding an RSS feed specifically geared towards your targeted niche will also be of great value for your blog. Try to make several posts every week. You'll be amazed by the amount of information you can create in a short time. Monetize your blog (if suitable) If you are able to, I put a combination of contextual and affiliate advertising in my website. The revenue generated by advertising for my blog was not great due to the amount of traffic I generated...however If you're doing well in the areas of business and technology, you could make some decent income from these ads. Google AdSense is a ubiquitous means for bloggers to earn money from blogging. Once you've placed the AdSense Javascript code in the source code of your blog Google's contextual ad tech will automatically select ads that are relevant to your blog's content. when somebody clicks on the ad, you get compensated. Advanced Techniques: "Blog and Ping": There's a reason behind why blog posts are able to spread so quickly through the blogosphere. When you update your blog, depending on your blog's hosting provider the "ping" might be sent to one or more blog search engines that follow the blogosphere. This will indicate that you've made a new post to your blog. Subscribers to your blog, or who are interested in your topic will be notified of your post and read it and/or hyperlink to it. A consistent program consisting of "blogging and pinging" will greatly assist in building links to your blog, and also generating more traffic. There are software and websites that allow you to manually send pings to dozens of well-known blog search engines. Ping-omatic is one website that allows you to connect to 18 blog search engines on demand. I've been using the RSSSubmit feature from Dummy Software to submit all feeds to more than 70 services at the push of the button. "Conventional" Link-Building: To increase your blog's indexing, I strongly recommend building links for your blog just as if it was a website. I did not make this a priority to the Bice blog, and the mistake (probably) ended up coming back to cost me dearly. Google's "Bourbon" update hit several days before the American Idol final and this blog was the only "Bourbon" casualty in my entire portfolio...vanishing from Google the Saturday before the final. My experience (plus other evidence from anecdotes) suggests that if I created a foundation of links that were not in the blogosphere prior to the Bourbon update the blog wouldn't be hit...of course I'll never know. The blog appeared in Google with its top indexing just 10 days after the Idol final, which deprived me of a massive amount of Bo Bice website traffic during duration leading up to that final...Thanks, Google:.) is the top link-trading website that is available on the Internet. They currently have over 20,000 sites that are potential link partners. If you pay $24.85 each year, users will have the possibility of trading links with any other site in the network. No matter what your website's niche is, you should be able locate many potential trading partners and generate many inbound hyperlinks quickly. Press Releases: Online press releases are a great way to create awareness for your blog. I made a press release announcing the launch of the blog. When I made the decision to "actively" blog Bo, I released a release each week, recapping the event and including highlights from the blog. Online press releases can attract thousands or even tens of thousands of reads...especially in the case of writing on a "hot topic". A lot of people who read your press release will eventually become blog users. PRWEB in addition to PRLeap are two of the most well-known and popular online press releases bureaus. They both allow for free submission of releases and both allow you to pay for better "placement". Your press releases will also be indexed by web search engine and (sometimes) may end up in Google as well. Yahoo News as well. I've seen my Bo Bice press releases as high as #3 within Google News for a "Bo Bice" search. The best idea yet When my blog reached an average of 500 visitors per day, I made the decision to ask for the posts of Bo's fans. Yes, many blogs allow readers the ability to post comments...but I decided that if I published the comments as actual posts, it could help create an "buzz" about the blog and draw a lot of return visits. I was able to receive 5-15 e-mails every day from Bo's fans who wanted their data to be displayed on the blog. So long as the post met my minimum blogging criteria, I ran the submission. The traffic increased immediately, with the submissions being of high quality. entries was generally good.
