You probably think SEO is only for pros, right? And as a result, you have been ignoring it and not seeing much love from Google. Don’t worry, you are not alone. In fact just a few years ago I didn’t know much about SEO either. I used to think it was all voodoo and not worth spending my time on. However, in the last few years I have been learning all I can about SEO, and now I can get traffic on Google almost on demand!
I remember when I first logged on to Twitter in March 2009 and, at the time, I thought it was a rather silly website. Then, in July of that same year, I started blogging and man oh man did I change my mind about Twitter. I quickly began to realize the power of a tweet! I began to connect with blogging influencers. My advice to you is to take advantage of all the new features that Twitter has to offer and quickly integrate them into your everyday workflow. Mix up your content using videos, gifs, quotes (image quotes or text quotes work) and keep your followers on the edge of their seats by educating them, and entertaining them, but above all, keep offering value.
Everyone with an active blog can make money but some people make more money than others. As a matter of fact, traffic plays a big role in how much money you make from your blog. To an extent, the way you do the things you do can also play on how much you make. Without any increase in traffic, you can do some things differently and see more results. I want to share with you (from my practical experience) a few things you should do differently to see different results. I’m not going to reinvent the wheels. I’m simply going to show you how to pick up some of the things that have been done for ages, add a little touch to it and see more results.
As a blog owner, it is imperative that you make the most out of your digital assets. The phrase “build it and they will come” is meaningless in the world of content marketing. Creating great content is not enough to be visible in the online market. More specifically, it is not sufficient to generate natural links from other authoritative sites, which are critical to bringing in organic traffic and increasing your rankings in SERPs.
Why does writing have to be so hard? Not the actual “thinking up the words part”, but the “motivate yourself and follow through” part. It doesn’t matter if you are writing a novel, a blog post, or a technical manual. Having a few good tools to use can make all the difference in the world. These ten writing tools are probably the best I have personally found. They are sure to blow your creative mind.
For years YouTubers were frustrated by the lack of traffic data available for their YouTube channel. We longed for a system that would rival the data rich reports we’d come to know and love in Google Analytics, and the old, out-dated YouTube Insights, reports were merely scratching the surface. This left the video analytics door wide open for freemium tracking services like vidIQ, Cyfe and TubeTrackr to easily attract any video marketer who wanted detailed performance reports for their channel. All of that changed a few days ago when YouTube released Realtime traffic reports on the desktop version of YouTube Analytics.
Do you ever feel burnt out? I know exactly what you’re going through… Repeatedly delivering the goods with your blog content is time consuming and downright draining sometimes.
Just when you think you’ve got a handle on the whole thing, life kicks in and more pressing tasks get done. Is it delusional to think that one day it will all just fall into place? You’ll meet your blogging deadlines, your content will rock and you’ll have your lifestyle back. Of course something that awesome isn’t just going to happen by itself, you need to get proactive.
But it can happen. The best way to get the results you’re looking for from blogging, without working 16 hours a day, is to think about outsourcing tasks to other people. That way you can focus on what you are uniquely good at.
