The Power of Negative Blog Comments (Criticism)

Every article that is published will always receive some sort of criticism from individuals in form of blog comments who enjoy reading about new factors, however, it may be good or bad. As you begin to build a blog, its also about building the related design, execution, and especially the subjects that are posts or articles written about on your blog. The main objective of any blog, however, is to get as many individuals as possible to become enthusiastic about your blog and the content and visit it frequently and share their views via blog comments.

Negative Blog comments

The Bloggers who create blogs do not need to be very concerned about any bad reviews that is made about the blog in fact, they should be grateful that people are making any reviews at all. The fact is  that the individuals with every comment are referring your blog, even if it is adverse criticism, it should be considered as an excellent achievement in its own way for your blog because that is exactly what you want. If the articles written on your blog trigger a lot of criticism from visitors, then you have achieved your objective of getting more individuals to become enthusiastic about your blog.

The Negative Blog Comments :-

Handling negative blog comments (criticism) is a kind of a hard factor to control, especially if you are new to blogging and have never created a blog before. As time goes on, however, you will become more accustomed to blog criticism and negative blog comments and it will have a much less effect on your emotional perspective. You must remember that criticism is a very excellent factor because it shows that peoples are enthusiastic about referring to your blog and also provides productive reviews for you on how to better enhance and improve the overall efficiency of your content.

Probably one of the most obvious method of finding out how many lot people are visiting your web page used by the visitor is by looking at the quantity of reviews that your blog is having. Having many reviews and blog comments published to the blog, whether they are positive or negative, results into a very successful blog, so the question then is how you can get more reviews on your websites. This objective can be accomplished in a number of different ways. If you want to improve your visitors’ wishes to check out your blog, you must think of and implement topics  that draw out the feelings and views of an ordinary person.

Topics that are fairly recent or highly controversial will improve the visitors wishes to post a statement/comment on your web page which will therefore improve the number of individuals that check out your blog. Write content that will get individuals to want to give reviews and participate in the on the internet discussion that is organised by your blog. Making blogs as a type of competition will also ignite people’s chances of writing reviews on your web page. One of the factors that you can advertise on your blog which will make it very interesting is a prize for the top commenters to the articles that you post. This method will give visitors another reason for posting reviews and blog comments to your websites.

How I got a Pagerank 3 in just 3 months work ???

If you ask a blogger, who is new in this field, about his goals; his first answer would surely be of earning money online but the second answer would be of increasing Pagerank of his blog.

Increase Pagerank

So are there any solid methods to get a good PR???

Of course, there are many methods that can help you in increasing the Pagerank of your blog. The Pagerank mostly depends on the backlinks and the quality of the backlinks. So if you can create some high quality backlinks then you can expect a high PR in the next update.

Remember,

  • Less backlinks, high quality – High Pagerank
  • More backlinks, low quality – less or maybe no Pagerank

How can you build quality backlinks ??

If you search around on some top blogs you will find a common article on increasing Pagerank. Most of the articles will only tell you to build backlinks through methods like Guest posting, blog commenting, submitting articles on article directories, using web 2.0 properties, joining forums etc.

The above mentioned sources guarantees a high quality backlink but why should you waste time when you can achieve result using only two solid methods like I did.

How I got a Pagerank 3 ??

Though I knew about the benefits of every method mentioned above I preferred only two methods to increase my blog’s Pagerank. That two methods were Guest post and blog commenting. I never tried article submissions or web 2.0 sites to get backlinks.

I started link building for my blog after the PR update in May. So it is exactly 3 months that my blog got a Pagerank 3.

Guest Posts :-

Guest posts have played an important role for my blog. Not only did it gave me solid dofollow backlinks but I got much required exposure from them. That was the reason I continued guest posts.

You might be thinking that I have done around 30-40 guest post to get Pagerank of 3. No, I did only 10 guest posts.

Its not just about the backlinks, you must also deliver quality content in your post. Also you must select a blog with a large readership base. Don’t just go blindly towards a blog with a PR 5 and no readership.

If you say to choose between a blog with Pagerank 5 or 6 with no comments on its first 10 articles and a blog with a Pagerank 2 or 3 with a good number of comments on each article; I will surely choose the later one.

That’s what I did. I always preferred guest posting on blogs with a wide readership. By doing this, you will get a good exposure and if your article is amazing, their readers might even tag you and your blog in their posts.

Blog Commenting :-

Commenting on blogs has its own benefits. I chose this method just because I can engage with other bloggers around the world.

By commenting on big blogs you will get a high authority backlink, if it is comentluv-enabled, you will get two backlinks. (Nofollow or Dofollow – just forget about that).

To get the maximum benefit out of your commenting efforts, you should leave a genuine comment; don’t just comment for the sake of it or your comment won’t even get an approval. By commenting, you are trying to start a conversation with your host blogger and also with the readers. This can help a lot. If your comments are conveying a superb point then be prepared to welcome some loyal guests at your blog.

Should you worry about DoFollow-NoFollow ??

This is other point of concern for many bloggers. You are doing link-building to increase your Pagerank. So you must get dofollow backlinks. But don’t only go behind blogs that offer dofollow backlinks for commenting. Your blog must have a proper balance of dofollow and nofollow backlinks so that it looks natural.

I would say that don’t worry about this dofollow-nofollow stuff. Just build backlinks. A few days ago I read an article where I read that now search engines give dofollow and nofollow the same importance. Whatever it may be, you must not ignore nofollow links.

 Control your outgoing links :-

You are writing an article and you want to link to another blog then I would suggest to keep it nofollow. I know that linking a highly popular blog with a dofollow link is appreciated by Google, but I would prefer to increase my Pagerank first.

The blogs you are linking to already have a good PR. First you must get a proper Pagerank and then you can give them a dofollow link.

A Personal advice : Don’t accept guest posts until you have a proper Pagerank, because by doing so most of your link juice wil flow to other sites and in the PR update you will see a Pagerank that you have not expected.

Don’t forget Social Media : 

Don’t avoid social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. You can put your blog’s link on such sites for as many number of times you want. So don’t try to ignore the power of Social Networking sites.

Did you like my article?? Do you have any suggestion regarding it?? Do you think I missed out on any point or presented anything in a wrong way?? Please let me know of my blunder. I would love to hear from you.

 

A blogger should never blog about these topics !!!

      Being a blogger, I know how difficult it is to come up with articles that will gain you both respect and authority as a blogger. The bloggers who are well aware of the working of the blogosphere will find a way out because they know that blogging is not a place that yields immediate results, you need to be patient and work constantly to build your blog and you will surely taste success. 

     However this is not the case when it comes to talking about new bloggers. They are not completely aware of how to manage their blogs and their presence. Their main aim to start a blog is to earn some money and because of this very reason they can’t succeed at all. They start posting irrelevant content on their blog which never gain any attention.
     So today I decided to write an article on what things a blogger should never blog about. 

How to make money online ??

    You have no right to tell people how to make money online when you are not making a penny. I have seen many blogs with “money making” niche but when it comes to their own earnings, they can’t answer it. 
     If you have immense knowledge on making money online or through blogging, then first you should apply it, make some money through it and then use your income report in the post so that your readers will believe you and won’t take you as just another blogger. Set an example before guiding your readers on any road. 
    Blogging about affiliate marketing when you are not making even $50 out of it. Everyone who knows about affiliate marketing also knows that it is not an easy task to make money out of it and so they will believe you only when you have some proof about what you got through it.

Writing Reviews.

    Whenever I read a review on a blog, I can say whether it’s copied or not. Not only I but anyone can say if its genuine or not. I have already seen many reviews and you might have seen some too. Writing reviews pf products that you don’t use is a bad practice. If a blog has benefited by writing such reviews, then don’t think that your blog will too. Its a completely different aspect. 
      You are on blogger platform and you write reviews of WordPress plug-ins on your blog, writing reviews of different hosting companies; are you fooling your readers ?? Do you think that people are dumb ?? A reader will instantly make out hat you do not have any knowledge and you are not at all serious for your blog. This practice will only harm your blog rather than doing any good.

The topics that doesn’t interest you

     This is the biggest problem prevailing in the blogosphere. Many new bloggers just start out their blogs on a topic that they don’t know about. Why to do such things ?? People follow such tactics just because of a simple notion. They simply see a successful blog on the very same topic and they think if it is making money then I can too with that particular topic.

       You won’t make money by just thing. That successful blogger has great knowledge about what he blogs. That’s the reason he is successful and you are not. Also if you try to read his articles and present it i your manner without knowing about the topic, you will suffer. How would you be able to answer your readers’ queries. Think about it ??

Tutorials  

     Ah…… Now we are at a great point. There are many blogs are around that concentrated on providing other bloggers with great tutorials, widgets and customization for the blogs, be it WordPress or Blogger. But with such blogs, there are some blogs that copies the tutorials and present it on their blog as if they have worked on it.

      You can easily make out from the look of the blog and the presentation of the article, whether it is a genuine tutorial or a copied one. If you can’t make out from the above points, then try to drop a comment on how to customize it according to your own needs. I bet you won’t get a proper reply. This works, I have tried it on many blogs.

Finally ………

Why spend your precious time on such tactics. Your blog will not enjoy the benefits but will only loose the readership you have got. Write what you love and don’t see other successful blogs. Take inspiration from them but don’t blindly copy them. Believe me you will surely get successful with your blog. Keep blogging !!!

How can you write a good blog post ??

With millions of blogs around and thousands added everyday, many people dream of having a blog and that too a popular one. There are many blogs that are very informative and so they are too popular. Taking inspiration from such super-blogs and there monthly income report, people tend to incline more towards the blogging thing. But can you create a good blog ?? Of course, you can have one but with some work.

If you have started a blog, don’t just rush in to create content, because rushing into create more and more content you will copy from other blogs and this can prove your biggest mistake. Content is everything for your blog at the end. Don’t just throw in something old. Create a blog you can feel proud of.

Consistency :-

The most important factor that makes your readers believe in your blog is your posting consistency. Try updating your blog once a day or once in two days. But please maintain a proper time. Don’t just post five times a week and nothing in the next week. This will make your readers think that you are not at all serious about your blog. Thus they will avoid turning towards your blog. This is not at all good as your blog’s success is dependent on your readers only. Maintain a schedule so that your readers know when you update your blog and they will visit you at that time.

Include some of “You” :-

I think if you have created a blog of your own then you will probably know the fact that a blog is a reflection of you. People blog to connect with other people around the world. Write a post in a such a way that people feel that you are talking to them. Don’t write the words as if your blog is some News Channel. There are many News Channel to do that. People love if you write like you are actually interacting with them. Also you can share some details of your life in your blog like your first income or any important event of your life. Such tactics won’t affect your blog but will only help it improve.

Use Pictures or Videos :-

Don’t just write for the sake of updating your blog. And if you are writing a post, don’t just use text. Sometimes readers search for an image in the post (even me). Use at least one image relevant to your topic.

“Images convey better than words.”

If you are writing about some gadgets or softwares or games or providing a tutorial, then including a video will be a great thing. Your readers will only love it. So don’t restrict yourself to text or even images. Try using videos at some moments.

Final Words :-

Keeping the above points in mind while writing a post will help you much and will also appeal to your readers. I hope that you would have liked my article. Please feel free to share it with your friends.

Promote your blog among your friends :-

     ”A friend in need is a friend in deed”. Why not use this phrase ?? Ask your friends to visit your blog and even share it with their friends. This way you will get more exposure and thus you will get some extra visitors. Remember one thing that you won’t be able to get more number of visitors if you alone take all the responsibilities. Give some responsibility to your friends even, they won’t say no to your hardwork and will surely support you in your blog promotion.

Use Social Networks :-

      The world is experiencing a social revolution. The influence of social networks is prevailing in every field. Why not use the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for promoting your blog. This platforms are not just for chatting or tweeting but you can use it to gain some visitors. Join groups, like pages, make your fellow bloggers your friends and they too will help you by sharing your work. Don’t restrict yourself to just the above 3 social networks; explore more like StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious, Reddit and many more.

Comment on other blogs :-

       Find other more popular blogs having a large number of visitors in your niche and start commenting on that blogs. But before commenting on the blogs, read the complete article before commenting so that you know on what topic you are giving your views.

Plus you will also build a good reputation of you own and thus of your blog.

Having your own domain name is the biggest desire for most of the bloggers for many reasons. For a start, it will become your identity in the future – call it your online identity. A carefully selected domain name will help you enhance the branding of your blog, your services and thus will give the respect in the online world.

Don’t just choose your own name as your blog’s domain name if you are wanting to monetize your blog. But that’s just about your own personal taste. But if you are keen on making money from your blog then you should choose the perfect domain for your blog.

  • Describe your blog’s topic :- Your domain name should be such that it should best describe about your blog. Your reader should understand what your blog is all about by just looking at your blog’s domain. This will make them feel that your blog doesn’t contain any junk and is worth visiting.
  • Should be easy to remember :- The domain of your blog should not be lengthy. You should keep it short and sleek for others to remember it easily. A person should not get confused when he hears the domain.
  • Should consist your blog’s keywords :- Another point to keep in mind is that your domain name should consist the keywords of your blog. Its not always that easy to use all your keywords but try and keep such keywords that you blog the most about. At the same time don’t forget to keep it short.
  • Future preferences :- One more thing to keep in mind is that keep it vulnerable for your future updates. I mean to say that, if you are planning to include some more topic to your blog in future, then it should support your domain name. So keep in mind about your future adventures at the time of deciding the domain name.
  • Things you should avoid in your domain name :-
  1. Numericals (eg. ’2′ or even ‘two’)
  2. Symbols
  3. Confusing or difficult to spell words.
  4. Hyphens.
  5. Letter jumbles. ( Your domain should not have such words that you feel it confusing eg. softtech )

Summary :-

Why is selecting a “niche” so important for your blog ??

Select a niche to blog about

Blogging is one of the easiest thing on Internet; but if you want to succeed as a blogger then the same thing becomes really tough. We introduced this section a few days back to help you make your own blog. Today we are going to write about the next point to keep in mind before you start blogging. The first point that we posted was about Different Blogging Platforms that can help you to build your blog. Now today we will see how to decide on the “niche” i.e. the topic of your blog.

Selecting a niche for your blog is very important because it gives you the direction to take further steps in your blogging career. Not deciding a niche will only confuse you and even search engines will not be able to figure out what your blog is all about and thus your blog will go unnoticed. Below are some tips to help you decide on your blogging niche.

1) Ask Yourself :-

The first tip lies within yourself. First of all ask yourself what you are really good at. Which are the topics that really interests you, the things that never bores you, the topics in which you crave to learn more ?? Prepare a complete list of all the topics of your interests. Sort it out according to your knowledge about each of them. Don’t avoid any of the topic as you will be needing it in further steps.

2) Research around the Internet :-

After sorting out all the topics, you need to do a complete survey of what people search more on the Internet. See if there is any topic in your list that is searched more on the Internet. If yes then give the top priority to that topic as most of the traffic comes from the search engines. Don’t go for topics that people are not looking for. You must look in to each point in selecting the best niche as it is the only thing that will help you blog in the future.

3) Look for more sub-niches :-

After you have zeroed down on a topic, then just relax and prepare a complete list of articles that you are going to write on your blog. This will help you give the initial push to your blog. After that see if there is any more topic that relates much to your main niche. If yes, then do include it also in your blog so that you never feel short of articles and your blog remains well-updated.

Final Words :-

By following the above points, you will surely end up in selecting the best niche for your blog and will be able to make the most out of it. But remember that you will not be able to see immediate results and won’t get success in the beginning. Blogging is a time-consuming job and should be done with much patience.
