This is a simple guide for all the new bloggers trying hard to make an impact (I must admit that even I am new to blogging, but I have learnt certain things, and I want to share all those with my fellow bloggers).So let’s start with it.
The most important thing about blogging is the topic of your blog.Before starting with your blog, be very clear about what you are going to write about.Choose something which interests you and also which has the capability to make visitors revisit your blog.This is the most difficult part.Unless your contents are interesting enough, people won’t visit your blog, and thus your blog becomes useless.
After you have a good plan about the subject, start with your blog.For a beginner, it is better to start with blogger blogs(also known as blogspot).Even though wordpress blogs are much more customisable, blogger provides readymade templates(can be changed later) and is easier to handle.Choose a nice looking template.Along with the quality posts, add some interesting gadgets and widgets like blog counter, chat box etc.
Once your blog is up and running, you need to have a good traffic to your blog.For this, the first thing you can do is to sign up for a traffic exchange site like easyhits4u.com.Even though these traffic exchange sites does not gurantee genuine visitors to your blog,but it will help you to increase the reading of your blog counter. Apart from these traffic exchange sites, you can also sign up at sites like entrecard, blogcatalog etc.These sites will bring genuine visitors to your blog.You can also get some constructive reviews from these visitors.
If you want to earn some extra cash from your blog, then put up Google adsense ads (your blog needs to be at least 6 months old in order to get the approval fom Adsense).Alternatively, you can also try sites like Bidvertiser, Adbrite and others to put up ads.
You also need to include your blog in the search engines,specially of Google and Yahoo.You can include your blog in the search engine index manually.Otherwise,if you want to submit to many search engines at a time, try this site: http://www.evrsoft.com/fastsubmit .It is free of cost.
Well, have you heard the term SEO???SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization.Search Engine Optimization is very much required to have a higer Page Rank.In a search, your Page Rank defines how well your blog is placed.If you have a high PR, then you may even find your blog in the first page in a Google search.This will help you to bring high quality visitors to your blog.But it is not as easily done as said.
How to increase the PR of your blog??
First of all, I want to tell you that this needs a lot of hard work.Even I am finding it to be a very difficult task.Some of the factors on which the PR depends are –
1)Good Traffic : Having a good amount of traffic means that your blog is a popular one.
2)Regular Posts : Have quality posts.Try to post new things regularly.
3)Backlinks : Have backlinks to your blog.This is very important in order to have a high PR.The search engine bots crawl from one site to the other via the links that site contains.So if you have a backlink in a site which has a high PR, then there is every possibility that the bot will crawl to your blog for the tag which has been searched for.
One of the easiest ways to create backlinks is to do link exchange.For other methods of creating backlinks, visit this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backlink
