The problem with most blogs is..their content sucks! They don’t worry about creating valuable content to their readers. Most of the blog posts will be either boring, unhelpful or they totally lack quality.

So how can you create incredible content for your readers that last even after years?

Here’s the dirty little secret to create valuable content.

Ways to create Valuable Content :

Every blog post should have a PURPOSE. You must be able to provide quality to create a great connection with your readers.

Incredible content starts with great headlines: 90 out of 100 people will decide whether or not to decide your blog posts by just looking at your headlines. So never (ever) forget the importance of your headlines. Spend some time to craft the killer titles. Try to create 3 to 5 headlines for each blog post that you write and choose the best one among them. This way you can create better titles for your blog posts.

16 is the new 14: Make your font size bigger. Your typography plays a vital role to make your blog more appealing. Your readers will love to read with bigger font sizes, don’t make it hard to read your content by using small font sizes like 12 or 13 px. Make it large.

Use the word YOU: Write your articles as if you’re directly talking to your friends. This way you can create engaging content. Your readers will love to see this kind of engagement on your blog. Moreover it creates a personal touch with your audience which will be very useful for you to build a better network around your blog in the long run.

Have a voice: Don’t write your blog posts without having a personality in it. No one will like to read the blog posts which lack the ‘feel’ in it. You can only breathe life into your blog posts by having a personal tone. Develop your own writing style and stick to it. Make sure your readers are comfartable with it.

Create scannable content: Write for the online readers, not for offline people. Most of the online readers prefer skimming your content rather reading it from the scratch. Consider this point before you’re writing your future posts. Write scannable content. Break your content into short paragraphs. Use lots of sub heads, bullets, italic, bold letters to make it more appealing.

Remove the unwanted stuff: Don’t use fluff words. They will degrade your quality of the content. Make sure you’re writing a great copy instead of filling your blog posts with useless stuff.

Interlink to your old posts: Don’t forget to interlink to your old posts, but be sure you’re linking to the relevant posts. It’s recommended to linking to authority sites in your niche whenever it’s necessary. By doing this, you’re not only providing extensive reference to your readers but also you’re increasing your credibility.

Bonus tip: proof read your content

Don’t forget to double check what you’ve written. Because your blog readers won’t love when your content contains full of grammatical mistakes and typos. It also creates a bad impact on your blog when you publish the blog posts without worrying about proof reading it. Even the prolific writers will get typos while writing, but they will take care of whatever they write. They will triple check their writing before hitting ‘publish’ button.

Over to you:

Creating great content is not a rocket science though, but it takes lots of time, research and efforts. You can’t get the results immediately after publishing your blog posts. Give them some time to get more online visibility. Moreover if you publish the blog posts randomly without worrying about the readers you can never make captivating content.

Top 5 Benefits of Using CDN (Content Delivery Network) !!!

CDN is the abbreviation for Content Delivery Network or Content Distribution Network. The term is used to describe a technology that involves the use of many servers located in different places to improve the rate of access to websites. Having your website hosted via CDN is like having your website files stored in many different locations around the world, so that they can be accessed faster irrespective of the location of the person seeking access.

CDN

CDN takes advantage of the fact that servers in different places around the globe are unlikely to face the same level of demand for resources at the same time. This means that CDN achieves better performance by using any idle capacity by distributing copies of files across many servers in different locations.

The result is that whenever an access request is sent, it covers a shorter distance irrespective of the requester’s location. This leads to near 100 percent hosting uptime. It is for this reason that more people and businesses are placing their websites on content delivery networks so that surfers get access speeds similar to surfing local websites.

Top 5 Benefits of Using CDN :

#1. CDN Offers Virtually Limitless Capacity.

The main players on the World Wide Web in the names of Google, Yahoo and Microsoft own an ever expanding infrastructure. This is what comes to play when using CDN. The capacity is constantly expanding, creating space for more content handling.

#2. CDN Reduces the Bounce Rate and Improves Earnings.

Because surfers get almost instant access to websites hosted via the CDN technology, more visitors are likely to get to the site. This means that the bounce rate is reduced and with the higher number of visitors, the number of those taking the next desired step to subscribe or purchase services or products is also raised. Depending on the percentage of visitors who take the desired action, CDN helps to improve earnings.

#3. CDN Uses Different Domains.

In normal circumstances, a browser will limit the way you connect to any single domain. This means that you cannot work as fast as you wish, especially when you are downloading large files. The result is that you have to wait for one connection to complete downloading so that you can get access to another connection. When you use CDN, this arrangement is different which means that you can carry on with your tasks much faster.

#4. CDN Relies on Distributed Data Centers.

CDN uses a series of localized data centers or edge servers to handle content. This for instance allows someone accessing a file in America from Europe to get it faster than when relying on an individual server located in America.

#5. CDN Frees Resources in Your Hosting Server.

By spreading the resource hungry theme and media files across the many edge servers across the globe, CDN helps free resources in your hosting server. This effectively means that you can carry out more tasks using your parent server. It also means that you can cut your hosting costs. This effectively translates to reduced overall expenses.

PinSomo WordPress Theme

Bizrate Insights found that 32% of online buyers in North America have made purchases after seeing an image on Pinterest or a similar image-sharing site.The reason why PinSomo works for Amazon niche sites is because is mainly because Amazon is filled with many products with visual representations and these visual images are naturally attractive to each and every person out there. Images are literally first impressions that are the essential first-steps to any purchase. It only makes sense that as an Amazon affiliate, having your site look like Pinterest means having more traffic and in turn – more income.

However, this is not always the case as mentioned earlier and we always have to bear in mind that the content that we put on our site has to be relevant with the Amazon product that we’re promoting otherwise there wouldn’t be results. Put yourself in the consumer’s shoes and imagine yourself seeing some attractive visual content with a product that could satisfy a need that you have — wouldn’t you be disappointed if you clicked on it and realized it has nothing to do with the product you had in mind?

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 to increase blog subscribers fast ??

If you ask most newbie bloggers what’s the most challenging thing to them, it’s how to increase subscribers to their blogs. Anyone that knows what blogging means must know the importance of having blog subscribers. The issue for many bloggers is how to make people subscribe to their mailing list.

get more blog subscribers

Even established bloggers find it tough most times.

You might even have tried all of what you’ve heard and read from other bloggers on how to increase blog subscribers but nothing have worked, then you are even on the verge of giving up on increasing your subscriber base. These days, we are no longer in the era when good blog design and traffic used to help bloggers to gain new blog subscribers, but there’s been a lot more to it.

My article will be drawing insights on how you can increase your blog subscribers base in less than three months.

#1 Problem: Traffic

It’s undeniable, if you don’t have traffic flowing in on your blog, you won’t get blog subscribers. But this time, it’s not just any traffic, but traffic that reckons with your blog. Take for instance your blog talks about the latest Smartphones; if the readers coming to your blog are not interested in Smartphones, then it’s not useful for them to subscribe to your blog. This is why it is important for you to get traffic that resonates with your blog.

How to Solve this Problem

Solving your traffic problem would go a long way to increase the number of people that subscribe to your blog every day. To increase the number of resonant traffic you get to your blog, you should try the tips listed below:

  • Run guest posts on relevant blogs and websites
  • Target relevant keywords for Search Traffic
  • Model your blog posts to resonate with your blog

#2 Problem: Conviction

The second thing that hinders people from subscribing to your blog is the lack of conviction to do so. Before anyone will surrender his/her email address to you, they will ask themselves why they must do so. Erase any thing that gives them doubts to subscribe to your blog.

Give people a reason or course to willingly give up their email and you’ll see how your blog subscribers base will dramatically increase.

How to Solve This Problem

Looking for a way to give people reason or course to subscribe to your mailing list will help you to achieve a milestone success. Since traffic, high quality articles and a good blog design alone is not enough to help you gain a lot of subscribers to your blog, applying the tips listed below will help you complement your efforts.

Other methods that you can implement to increase blog subscribers.

Run a Blog Event (Contests, Free Membership site offers etc.)

Running an event on your blog would be a powerful way to give people reason to subscribe to your email list. Of course this won’t happen automatically, but you will make them sign up to your email list before they are eligible to participate in the event. And you’ll notice, people will be more than willing to subscribe to your email list if your event is of great benefit to them, which is why making the event even extremely useful to bloggers more important.

Launch a Product

Another great way to make people willingly surrender their email address for you is to launch a product. People appreciate new things and can do anything to get exciting offers. Use your new product as a bait to capture people’s email address and your turn up will be worth it.

Mind you, you might need to collaborate with other bloggers to make this more effective and get more blog subscribers.

Conclusion

With the tips you’ve seen in this blog post, if you can apply them religiously you will be rewarded with a surprising increase in your blog subscribers list.

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.
