Mistakes in blogging are inevitable. All of us do certain mistakes in our blogs and repent later. Here are some common mistakes which you must avoid for a successful blog.
First common mistake done by beginner bloggers : Bad Title
Bad Titles can make your blog post handicap in several ways:
- SEO will be bad : less change to get in the top search results
- Even you managed to get in among the top search results, it is difficult to attract visitors
- People will click less on on your blog’s Tweeter or RSS Feed
Non-professional blog posts
Non-professional blog posts are dangerous for search engine, as well as direct visitors. These can be like (not limited to) :
- I’ll marry on the next month
- Hurry! my first child born
- I need a break from writing blogs
Lack of time and writing under time pressure is one of the biggest mistake you should avoid in your blog
It is extremely important to always take enough time to read the whole article again and improve it until it’s perfect. Spelling errors and bumpy statements disrupt the flow of reading, and hence the success of a post.
Thousands of Tags and Hundreds of diverse categories
Tags should be limited in number, SEO optimized. Categories builds the structure of the blog. Build categories in a meaningful planned manner. Write at least 70-100 posts in one category, then create a new one.
What is SEO? I write quite well, I do not need SEO
SEO is to establish a good writing to a good position in the search engine result page. Nothing more, nothing less. Every successful blogger is their self a SEO expert. You can hire a third person, but no one will know better than you about all the posts.
