1. Is Your Blog User-Centric?

The problem with most bloggers is that they just create a default blog with blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal, etc, using free themes & plugins. Such blogs are a disaster for search engines & the targeted audience because they lack professionalism & attraction. Google will never list the content of a blog in its top search results if it is not responsive to mobile devices, has outdated information, and is slow to load.

If you happen to be a non-tech person, contact a professional website developer or a company for the creation of your blog with a particular CMS. Ask him/her to add all necessary features to make your blog look professional, attractive, and SEO friendly. A well-designed business blog makes the blogging an enjoyable task and helps bloggers to achieve the set goals. Your business should be-

  • Attractive & Professional,
  • Load fast on all devices,
  • Has proper CTA buttons, Newsletter Signup options, social signals, etc.

The demand for fresh content is so high that that content writers fail to mitigate the huge gap between demand and supply. The scarcity of content often halts your blogging activities, allowing competitors to capture a bigger market share.

Therefore, analyze the content preference of the targeted audience and create user-centric materials in advance. It’s your duty to check the written content and remove all possible errors. Your content should be easy-to-understanding and well-formatted. Add Titles, Sub-Titles, useful hyperlinks, images, videos, statics, etc, to make your blog articles more attractive.

3. Publication of Content & SEO

Once you have content, proofread it at first (to remove all possible errors and make corrections) and publish it on your blog at frequent intervals. Never forget the SEO part of the blog.
