Blogging in 2020. Solution Number one -Don’t just focus on text-based content.

Before blogs were just text-based content, and that’s what people used to publish. And they would share the link here and there. That is fine. But you know what? In 2020, text-based content isn’t everything.

We all use a mobile phone. People are using a mobile phone to view videos, listen to podcasts. So when you’re blogging, do not completely rely on text-based content.

Create video and audio-based content. Publish them on your blog. Also, publish it to other mediums as well. Your content should be everywhere.

For example, I put you tube videos. And recently I have also started a podcast. Re-post your content in every possible platform. If you are making video content. Then share it on every social site and grab more attention.

 

Blogging in 2020. Solution Number Two-Update your old content

For example, look at Wikipedia. In most cases, whatever you search, they are coming in number one because they keep updating their content and getting more relevant.

If you keep updating your content and providing more values, then, eventually your ranking will improve.

Blogging is getting harder day by day. So, you have to do proper research to give the best value.

Blogging in 2020. Solution Number Three-Think before you write

If you want to grow your blog, then you have to keep on thinking about your writing. I observed that many bloggers write for the sake of writing.

They are more concerned about things like traffic, conversions, etc. Let me ask you one thing here. What would you do with the traffic, when your writing is not providing the value?

It’s not that difficult. Ask yourself, “Why, I am writing?” The moment you will get the response, it will be easier for you to focus more on the writing part and be more creative.

Follow these steps and grow your blog faster.

Do not just rely on Text based contents. Start podcast and you-tube

Optimize your posts to ensure that you are giving the best values

 Not getting enough ideas for content?Try to solve one problem and create a content out of it.

  • On-Page SEO
  • Off-Page SEO
  • Social Media Presence 

Blogging in 2020. Solution Number Four-Don’t ignore SEO

What is On-page Optimization, and how do we do it? It’s an essential aspect, and don’t ignore it. Off-page SEO, backlinks are also relevant. However, on-page SEO can do wonders in terms of your SEO score.

Keep the most critical lines in the Heading one. Keep the sub-points in heading two. Let’s try to understand this website.

I will write Welcome to simplefactsonline — a perfect H1. Today we’ll talk about (Topic). The experts’ recommendation to keep the H2 like this. Other details will be in a paragraph if I make more subheadings. Then those will be for heading 3. Remember H2 will always come under H1.

For successful crawling, we need to provide more and more headlines.H1 big, and H2 means small. You can even make H1, H3 look the same by increasing their size.

Yoast SEO is a perfect plugin for WordPress SEO. This plugin will tell you about the quality of the content(headings, etc.). Keyword density, readability.Whether you’ve kept your focus keyword in the beginning or not. Focus keyword like I need to write a blog on red shoes. So red shoes will be my focus keyword. It’ll automatically recommend you to write your focus keyword.

Write catchy lines in the descriptions so that you will get more clicks.

Think about it whenever you search for something on google. You open the site after reading the description, right? If that description is not appealing, you won’t open it. Sometimes we don’t even open the page because we got our answers from the description itself.

Let’s talk about internal and external linking. Internal linking means that I am adding my links to other posts/pages. If I link different pages of my blog, Then chances are very high that the visitor will check the other contents. Website engagement will increase.

Another thing is external linking. Let’s say I wrote Digital Marketing, which has its meaning. How does google know? What am I trying to express about Digital marketing? So I can link any relevant article in my blog post. That is external linking. 

Solution Number Five-Don’t just sell, provide a solution

You are trying a lot. But results are not going in your way. Has this ever happened to you? It happens a lot when you overdo something. Remember it’s not okay to over-promote.

People are getting smarter every day. The moment they will realize that you are pitching something, there is a high possibility that they won’t return to your site.

So, here is the solution. Try to provide a solution, instead of selling.

For example, you are writing an affiliate article about a washing machine. Don’t just write a review and share your affiliate link. Try to make it a case study kind of content. People love case studies.

Solution Number Five-Don’t just be limited to blogs.

Competition is constantly increasing. Focusing on one thing can’t help you to create your brand awareness. Publish content in different mediums. It’s effortless.

Remember, I mentioned that I am doing the podcast. Which is a different medium than a blog?

So, how do I manage to get my contents for the podcast?

It’s easy to get content for your podcast.

All you need to do speak up your ideas.

The podcast market is growing day by day. This is the right time for you to start a podcast.

Do Visit  anchor.fm   And create your first podcast

Solution Number Six-Brainstorming Blog Post Ideas

Try to address a problem and provide a practical solution to it. Ask your readers about what they want. Create a survey.

Always think about growing your blog. Keep thinking about new ideas. Keep on exploring the new things.

Remember, your blog isn’t just limited to only one URL. It is your brand.

I think it’s the passion that keeps you growing in blogging. At the same time, a long term goal always helps.

It’s not easy to make 💰 online. You have to work really hard, and at the same time, smart work also plays an important role in blogging.

Patience will be like the cherry on the top 🙂

 

Solution Number Seven-Follow the Basics

This may sound cliche, but it is essential to follow the basics. A blog requires a specific time to grow. You have to devote a lot of time into it. There are some basics that I talked about in one of my blogs Ad-Sense Approval Process.

If you are serious with your blog and want to improve the blog, then, follow these tips.
