Having a blog is not easy. The reality is that it is a work in itself. Be organized , have a good editorial calendar , spend a lot of time daily to analyze and discover new blogs, networking, etc.
There are many things we should do if we want our blog to work.
When making content, if you press common sense, if you like and know what you write and if you do not become very crazy, it is simple, in quotes, bring value and create interesting content for your audience.
But, for starters, forget about:
DO NOT FILL EACH PARAGRAPH OF LINKS
Select well where you want your users to click, do not waste your time among hundreds of links to tags, categories of your blog or things that may not be directly related to your post.
By the way, if you are the ones that use those plugins that auto-link to tags or old content based on some keywords, delete that functionality from your blog, it is not what the user expects and anything that does not select you personally does not go to have the same concept and intention.
DO NOT LINK TO YOUR CONTENT ONLY
If you write about Chanel, when the user sees a link word that says “Chanel”, you expect to go to the Chanel page, not your entries on that brand.
Combine between internal and external links and try not to put too many links in each post, it is to make reading easier and add value with links that complement your content .
DO NOT COMMENT INDISCRIMINATELY ON OTHER BLOGS BY PLACING LINKS TO YOURS
Talking about how we should comment on a blog gives a blog exclusively of this so I will focus on something as simple as adding value. Do not comment on other blogs simply to put a link to your post, it is not about that. Try to add value to your answers and let those readers or even that blogger, discover you. Forget the links and think about bringing value.
DO NOT USE IMAGES FROM GOOGLE IMAGES OR FROM OTHER BLOGS
You’ve run a 1500 word post, you’ve taken hours to do it, you’ve been researching for days, and you’ve compiled very useful tips. However, you have taken the first photo you saw in a Google Images search. No no and no. Do not overturn all the work and use, at least, some image bank that allows you to have professional images. Although ideally your images were (or seemed) unique, this is fundamental part of the experience of your readers with your post. And therefore and derived from this, the design, both of how to model the contents and of your blog, is fundamental, watch it!
DO NOT COPY AND PASTE
Do not make a blog to copy and paste foreign content and simply put a “Via” or “Source” at the end of the post. That is ugly, it will generate problems with the original authors and it will not give you credibility. Never. In fact, this kind of practices Google no longer rewards, so if you did for an SEO topic, forget it.
I hope these tips help you and if you know someone who is doing something like this, pass this link and tell us your opinion :-).
