Mohammed Yaqoob05/07/2013Blogging Tips

Blogging is now the most famous way to promote you and your business among the wider internet audience. Thousands of blogs are created daily for different purposes, some for earning the bucks and others for serving the world.

Bloggers can be successful if they put their hard work in building a good blog. A newbie blogger is unaware from many things about blogging and makes huge mistakes.

So here we’re going to discuss about some mistakes or things which must be avoided by bloggers to get success in their blogging career. Before we begin the discussion, first let me explain that who is a successful blogger.

Who is a Successful Blogger?

A successful blogger is one who is familiar with every aspect of blogging and know how to blog to get better rankings in search engines and have the ability to beat his/her competitors. Having high engaged blog readers, blog authority, high Alexa ranking and Google Page Rank are also signs of a successful blogger.

Beside these factors, if someone has the quality to make high “Monthly Blog Revenue” from his blog then, no doubt, he is also in the list of Top Bloggers. So, now decide yourself that  do you have all these qualities? If yes, then stop reading this article otherwise keep your eyes glued on this guide.

Tips To Become A Successful Blogger

Below are the most important tips and suggestions that would help you to reach your blog to next level. If you work on these strategies, then, no doubt, soon you’ll be listed in the list of famous bloggers running their great blogs with massive income.

1# Copying Content From Others

This is one of the worst habits in many newbie bloggers. You’ve to avoid copying other’s content because it’s illegal and if you continue copying content from other’s blog, then soon you’ll be caught by Google and your blog will be penalized.

Even I used to copy other’s articles and my whole blog was deleted by Blogger Automated Classification System and I learnt the lesson from it.

So, I also recommend you not to copy content from anywhere. Make a habit to write your own content and if required then take a look to other’s content for ideas and hints.

2# Wrong Niche Selection

This is another mistake which is also being done by many bloggers that they don’t choose the correct niche for their blog. My recommendation is that, choose niche in which you’re expert and a great knowledge.

If you pick niche of your interest, then you will never paralyzed by Writer’s Block. Ideas for new posts will automatically knock the door of your mind.

Choosing interest related niches always perform well to deliver really valuable and worth reading content to our readers. If readers love our content, then they will love to visit our blog more often and build a strong readership around our blog.


Bonus Tip: If you are confused to finalize your niche, then make a list of your interests and then start short listing that. At final you’ll get a niche in which you have most interest and knowledge.

3# Implementing SEO in Wrong Way

We must focus on Search Engine Optimization to optimize blog for search engines. Most of newbies don’t know how to implement SEO on their blog and that’s they neglect it. But friends, only SEO is that thing which can help you to gain massive amount of targeted traffic to your blog from search engines.

Some bloggers implement SEO in a wrong manner and did minor but must ignored mistakes. Most common are keyword stuffing, crossing keyword density limit, don’t do keyword research before writing post, building backlinks to blog via spam methods like spam blog commenting etc.

If you are also doing the same mistake, then polish your SEO skills today and become a smart blogger.

4# Non User Friendly Blog Structure

This is also important that you should make your blog user friendly. User friendly blogs have good design and easy to read. Provide best navigation structure to your readers so that they can access each corner of your blog.

Write blog posts with incredible formatting that please to reader’s eyes, solve their queries and reply to their comments. Appreciate their comments on your blog and asked them to visit it more often. When you start appreciating their presence on your blog and build relations with them, then they’ll love to read your blog regularly and you’ll get returning traffic to your blog.

Read this killer trick to increase comments on your blog and build better user’s engagement on your blog.

5# Considering Daily Blogging – ‘A Waste of Time’

When bloggers got inspiration from other great bloggers to join blogging, they launch they blog with so many hopes. But soon they get bored to it and stop updating it regularly. They considered it as a waste of time.

But you’ve must need to learn that how important is to update your blog regularly because our readers and search engines both love daily fresh and unique content on our blog. I recommend you to participate in Daily Blogging and make your blog lovable for your readers and search engines too.

In one of my earlier posts I had share a complete guide on Daily Blogging and it’s benefits. Must check it and be a smart blogger and work on your blog effectively.

6# Giving Value To Ads Over Traffic

Always give value to your blog traffic first and ads later. Accept this fact that if you fail to build up your blog traffic then you can’t taste money blogging.

Don’t make your blog a fish market by adding too much ads. It’ll annoy your readers you’ll lose soul of blogging. Many bloggers who are keen to make their blog as ATM Machine, put pop up ads to get maximum clicks.

At least think at once from user’s side, would you like to visit those blogs where priority to ads are higher than content.

Our readers visit our blog in sake of our content. If you don’t give value to your content, then sorry to say, you are the failure from your first step.

Stop Dreaming, Wake Up and Do Hard Work

At last, I would like to tell you that stop dreaming to become successful blogger over night. You need to come out from dream’s world and start working to improve your blog’s value.

I remembered that I did the same mistake when I put my first step into blogging world. My dreams was to make instant money from my blog say dollars and dollars :P

But I was totally wrong and then I realize that we’ve to do hard work to become a successful blogger. Only then we can earn desired money to fulfill our living needs.

Blogging looks tough to newbies that’s why either they quit it or lose their interest. But this is not the fact. Blogging is really interesting that make bloggers differ from normal people. If you concentrate on your content, that is the king, then you can experience the blogging world in a very colorful way.

These are 6 major points that would help you to learn how to become successful blogger. I shared my own experience with you guys and hope to hear from you. What are your suggestions to become a successful blogger? Please share your views and suggestions via comments. Take care!

  9. Nwosu Desmond Mavtrevor says:

    To be successful in the blogging the first and most important point to consider is niche, choosing a wrong niche can be a problem because you will definitely run out of ideas and what to post. You must choose a niche you are an authority in. Blogging to be successful requires one to be passionate and patience at the same time as blogging is not a get-rich-quick scheme, sometimes it takes tome to succeed. Copying and pasting is considered as plagiarism and Google and other search engines do not like this at all, you will be penalized and de-indexed.

    Thanks for sharing these points once more.

    Hi Muhammad Yaqoob,

    Nice to meet you brother. So you from Sindh. Its nice.
    You know I am doing proper blogging from last 5 to 6 month. i am investing my own money. But still not try to make money fast. I want to build up extreme reputation first. Then I would start thinking about money seriously. So I am impressed what you have written under “Giving Value To Ads Over Traffic”. This is perfectly matched.

    • Mohammed Yaqoob says:

      Yes brother, You’ll need to wait and concentrate on building the reputation then you’ve chances to earn quick cash instantly. And this is truth that many bloggers are giving value to ads with no traffic even some focus their readers to click on ads but this is extremely bad. I hope this article will help them otherwise Google will face them.
