Many blogger newbies have invested a lot of money trying to promote their blogs in search engines and in the blogging sphere which have made me to launch a SEO services program for our readers which is supposed to start next year February because we believe that they can do a lot more for very less.
Most probably a lot of bloggers will start blogging with the hope of making money but it happens that things go vice versa resulting into being an sinking fund which is probably the worst thing to happen to a blog. Recently a blogger sold her blog with over 300 , 5.7k Facebook followers with a cheap unbelievable price of $171 . The reason the owner sold the blog was because since she started blogging she was not able to monetise her site but instead she received a negative income . These type of loses are due to low optimisation of the blog, so if possible learn more about our services which will help bloggers to monetise their blogs.
When I was a blogger newbie I always made mistakes with my blog cause I had no Idea about blogging but with the use of SEO my blog started over into its best potential. I have seen it a big idea to let you know the mistakes that you are doing and what effect can they have to your blog, and how can you can deal with them in a very short period of time.
Common Mistakes made by bloggers
It is very rare to see a technology website writing posts about pregnancy or should I say a pregnancy website writing blog posts about Technology. The posting of weigh to different posts niche can degrade your blog and might as well loose some of their loyal readers.
- Focus on quantity and mostly on quality
Copy and paste of blog posts from other blogs into you blog is not right for any blog because it will reduce a lot of success opportunities for your blog as Google Adsense, Media.net have banned blogs with "fake" posts. Please instead of using the copy paste way rather write things in your own words and use your own images instead.
- Pre-read your post before publishing
Mistakes such as spelling errors in your blog posts can really have a negative impact to your blog as search engines will rate your blog as not professional resulting in very low traffic by search engines , I still do spelling errors in some of my posts but I have been working hard to avoid them as I am typing blog posts for my readers and the visitors.
Proof reading has been the best way of all time used by professional bloggers and professional websites to get the hearts of the readers into subscribing to their blogs or products. Righting quality blog posts has the power to increase your blog subscribers.
- Have a managed dedicated server
These services offer a range of free templates that can be used on your blog but these templates will probably need a lot editing to fully optimize them for search engines, these optimisations are the main reason most bloggers have made it to the top first page of Search engines.
There are also some other hosting services that become handy but they will need you to sign up for hosting services starting from $4 - $10 per month and this may require you to purchase a premium template at the cost of $20 - $100 which will make you spend + 150 dollars per year.
So I believe that you should sign up for free hosting services and buy a domain name which will cost you $1 - $15 dollars per year and purchase SEO services which is likely to cost you $32 per year, which will include an estimated total of $42 or less.
