blog tips

Blogging tips are shared by the top professionals across the web on a daily basis, but do you want to be the most popular blogger in the planet or at least, the most successful blogger in your niche. Every blogger when they start their blogging journey has similar dreams. But there are very few bloggers who are able to take themselves from being another blogger to a successful professional blogger.

You cannot become successful overnight; you need to work hard and gain and share lots of knowledge about your targeted niche through your blog posts and guest posts. You can measure your success through different metrics like number of visits your blog is getting or how many followers you have on different social media networks or how much money you actually are able to make from blogging. Different people can have difficult parameters to judge their success with blogging as they can have different blogging goals.
List of Blogging Tips to Become a Successful Blogger

In today’s special guest post, I’m going to share 10 blogging tips that should help you attain lots of success from blogging and thus will help you become a successful blogger.Blogging tips
1. FirstImpression is the Last Impression

If your blog don’t have decent layout and your blog readers are finding it hard to read your actual content, you need to fix it as the first priority item. It’s your blog design which is first viewed by your blog readers and if they don’t like it, they will simply close it and move to the next website. So you need to make sure, there are no unwanted pop ups, too many ads above or around your actual content and no in-text ads. You should start observing your blog from the eyes of your blog readers and try to imagine what you would like to see after opening it and what are the problem areas. You could even take advice from your friends to improve the overall design and functionality of your blog. Your navigation links structure should be very clear and there should be a mention for each content type you cover on your blog.
2. Content Quality Matters the Most

It’s your content’s quality which matters a great deal. If it’s really good, it will motivate your blog readers to visit your blog again and again to read your latest blogging tips and keep up with your posts. You should use relevant and interesting images and videos to make your posts more interesting. No one loves to read a blog post carrying 1000 of words without a single image being used. It’s also well said, a picture is worth a thousand words. You should proofread your blog posts for grammatical and sentence related errors before scheduling on your blog. It can be really irritating if you are reading a blog post that contains too many errors as it’s blog owner is unable to differentiate their and there even. One more thing, you should create an eye catching title for your blog posts.

It’s your blog post title that people see first when they browse your blog post listing in search engines. In case they don’t find it interesting, they will simply ignore it and switch to the next search engine result. So you have very few seconds to convert an impression into an actual click. Blog posts with eye catching headlines get better CTR (Click through Rate) in search engine results and other places of listings.
3. Write Guest Posts for Other Blogs

Write guest posts for other blogs in your targeted niche is one of the best things you could do to become a successful blogger. So the trick here will be making a list of most popular blogs in your niche and approach them with high quality guest posts. You can use MyBlogGuest.com community website to find targeted blogs for guest blogging. You can even get a list of around 200 blogs that allows guest blogging on Bloggers Passion blog where Anil Agarwal has shared all important metrics for blogs like their page rank, Alexa Rankings, contact details and guest blogging guidelines. So what are you waiting for? It’s action time, just go and publish your guest posts on top blogs in your niche to take your blogging journey to greater heights.
4. Reply to Comments

You should reply to comments coming on your blog posts. If you are not replying comments, don’t expect lots of comments appearing on your blog posts from genuine blog readers. If you are trying to answer most of questions you are getting from your blog readers in the form of comments, overall traffic and number of comments you are receiving on your blog posts will also increase to great extent. Your blog readers will also get the feeling there is someone who is not only listening their thoughts but also sending his own responses. Apart from your own blog posts, you should check your guest posts on regular basis and reply to incoming comments. But before doing any commenting activities, you should set an avatar for you on Gravatar.com.
5. Learn the Basics of SEO

You should start learning the basics of SEO. It will be your SEO skills that will take you from being an average blogger to a successful blogger. You need to look at maximum ethical methods to drive traffic to your blog from search engines. You should use targeted keywords in your blog post URL, Title, meta tags, as an alternative text with images, heading tags and few times in your actual blog content. You should interlink your blog posts where they make sense. Apart from this, you should link out to trusted websites to give additional information about a topic to your blog readers.

If you are blogging on WordPress and don’t know much about SEO and Onpage Optimization techniques, there are some plugins that can help you in perfecting the Onpage optimization activities on your blog posts and pages. You can give a try to Easy WP SEO plugin, which use 23 Onpage SEO factors while calculating the SEO Score for your blog contents.
6. Do Some Link Building Activities

No doubt guest blogging on other blogs will help you get some high quality backlinks for your blog from popular blogs in your niche. Apart from guest blogging, there are lots of traditional link building methods that you should adopt for generating more targeted backlinks for your blog. You cannot get much traffic to your blog without link building activities if you are blogging about a competitive niche. Some of link building activities you can adopt can be doing blog commenting activities on other blogs in your niche, submitting articles on ezine publishing websites and submitting your blog into high PR blog directories.
7. Create a Strong Presence on Social Media Websites

If you have been following search engine trends for some time, you would have clear idea about the importance of social media signals. You need to make sure your blog has a strong presence on Social Media networks like Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter.

Are you allowing your blog readers to share blog posts of their interest on social media websites, if no start doing it now? Add links and icons for popular social media websites on your blog sidebar and at post level. If you are using WordPress as your blogging platform, there are plugins like Digg Digg that will allow you add stylish share bar for these websites in your blog contents. Check out Ms. Ileane’s post to learn How to Boost Your Brand on Facebook and Drive Traffic To Your Blog.
8. Improve Speed of Your Blog

You need to look at all possible ways to improve the speed of your blog. If you are adding images, you should optimize their sizes before uploading on your blog. You should enter cleaned HTML into your blog posts. If you are blogging on WordPress, there are plugins that can help in improving the performance of your WordPress blog. You could use W3 Total Cache plugin for content caching and WP Optimize for database cleaning. You can expect a better ranking for your blog on Google with improved speed as sometime back Google included page speed as one of rankings factor in its search engine algorithms.
9. Improve Engagement on Your Blog

You should write engaging content on your blog. You should give a personal touch to your blog posts. You should ask questions; take advice and feedback from your blog readers. Apart from writing engaging content here’s a few more useful blogging tips – you should interlink your blog contents; use related posts, creating polls and surveys etc. on your blog.
10. Monetize Your Blog

If one of your primary goals behind blogging is earning cash, you should start monetizing your blog once you start seeing some traffic on it. No doubt there are hundreds or even thousands of websites claiming to help you make money from your blog, but don’t believe on all of them. Google Adsense is still the most popular and most used monetization method used by content rich websites and blogs. If you are blogging about a particular niche, you can try selling some products based on your niche through your blog.

how to start a blog from scratch

How to Start a Blog From Scratch
inShare90

It’s difficult to start a blog from scratch when you are the only person in charge. You have to write, promote, build links, do the design, and take advertisements and all other things required. It’s hard but it’s not impossible. I built my blog from scratch and no one was there to help me out. This article will be a handy guide for an internet newbie about how to start a blog from scratch.

For every beginner bloggers, the number one problem is the lack of a coaching and guidelines. You’ll find free articles, resources and ebooks on how to start a blog and make money but in most cases, these are not gonna work for you as a newbie perspective.

How to start a blog from scratch? BlogKori

So now you have to follow a guideline where you can build your blog from scratch, all by your own and with minimum investment. You have to follow the guide written from the person who have succeeded in creating a blog from scratch (like me!)
What is minimum investment?

Blog can be done for free with the help of free platforms such as Blogger and Wordperss but I recommend Blogger. Blogger supports a range of customization and the scope to publish ads.

You can start with a domain name that requires $10 (500-800 TK in BD) and you can use this domain with blogger (no hosting required) Read this guide on using a domain with blogger.

If you can afford a domain and $4 every month for web hosting, then go for a self hosted wordpress blog.
Brainstorm a killer topic to blog about!

After you have decided to start a blog, it’s time to take a topic and launch your blog. When choosing a topic, try to think about your target audience. People will come to your blog and read it. Do they know how to use a PC and internet? Yes, because they are already on the internet and looking for something. Now ask yourself, what would you like to find on the internet and are you able to provide a better solution? If the answer is YES, then start with that topic.
Write 10 blog articles

Write 10 article topics on a notepad. Write them one by one & then publish them on your blog. It doesn’t matters how long you take to post them. Just write short 300-500 word articles and get started. Don’t waste your energy to write a post like, “Hi, this is my first blog” type posts. At this point, no one is reading your blog.

Now write one new article everyday on your blog. If possible, write more articles and post them in different times of the day. When you have more than 10 good articles, start promoting your site. The reason I said to write 10 articles is because when a new person will come to your blog, they must find enough articles on your blog.
Promote your site

If you have accounts in facebook or twitter, then ask your friends to take a look at your blog. Get started with new social sites such as twitter, facebook, digg, stumbleupon, reddit and find people who share the same interests. For an example, if you write about pets, try to search people who voted or submitted about pets. Add those people into your list because they might be interested in that topic.

Take a search on

Google Blog Search
Technorati Blogs
BlogCatalog Directory

…and find blogs on your topic. Comment on the posts and make good relationship with the readers and author. In this case try to locate the small blogs around you.

Social media traffic comes only when you shake them. This means you have to be active on those sites to get regular traffic flow.
Design your blog

Having a nice and simple design is required in blogging. If you’re using blogspot, then take a look at this post about setting up a custom template. If you google, you’ll find lots of interesting blogger and wordpress themes. You can also create your own blogger theme from scratch.

Please don’t spend too much time on improving your blog design. Set a new template and be happy with it. In the beginning, try spending more time on content writing and promotion.
Income source

Trying to earn money with your new blog is just like sending your new born baby to work without giving him time to grow. Maximum people try out blogging to earn money and that’s okay because we all want to have a part time income. Now at the very beginning, bloggers want to earn the high numbers which is fairly impossible.

Income with a blog depends on your blog topic, traffic and conversation rate. There are lots of methods to make money with a blog, lots of money making opportunities and that’s the main problem for newbie bloggers. Beginners don’t know where to go and what model will work best for them. For beginners, try out google adsense and as you explore the internet, you’ll find other ways of money making.
More advanced topics

The more you’ll learn about internet blogging, the more you can do better with it. It’s hard to build a blog from scratch but it’s not impossible. Here are other aspects of blogging for advanced bloggers,

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Blog branding strategies
Get more blog comments
Mistakes that new bloggers should avoid
Choosing a domain name
Tracking visitors of your blog

Share your experience

You must be a new blogger or an experienced blog author. Please do share your experience, tips and strategies with us. What you did when you were about to start your first blog? What challenges you’ve face in blogging? You can also read this huge list from LifeHacker on how to start a blog and being a better blogger.

link building tutorial

Timeless Link Building Strategy – Building Link & Backlinking Guide
inShare1

Timeless Link Building Strategy – Building Link & Backlinking GuideFor the last few years I am doing a whole lot of SEO & backlinking stuff. Frankly speaking I had no idea about any particular link building strategy. When I first started my blog, I was building link here and there randomly. I kept writing articles and that’s all I did. I am still learning and as I make my way up I will be sharing more on what I have learned. In this article I will write about the timeless link building strategy that will work everytime. In a nutshell SEO boils down to just 3 parts:

Keyword research
On page website optimization
Link building

The last part is the biggest and the most exciting of them all, also the most frustrating one. For a long time I suck in all of the 3 above mentioned things, that’s why I couldn’t see any success in my rankings. I didn’t know what I was doing. I would launch a new site; backlinking randomly here and there and hoping to see a magic in life.

But magic doesn’t happen in reality. That’s why it sucked! So back to the reality I then lost interest to my site and move on to another one and still getting the same ending. As a result I had 20s of websites that were a pain in my ass and I have no idea what I should be doing with them.

Sounds familiar?

So in this article I would like to share about a link building strategy that will work. I call it Link Engineering. What ever you call it, it’s all the same, how to get more links pointing to your website. Like me you must have read lots of ebooks on building links. The ones that say do this, do that and bla bla bla. But in reality link building is very diverse. Here are the most basic ways to attain links for your website:

BacklinksDirectory Submission
Article Directories
Social Bookmarking
Forum Posting
Paid Links
Link Exchange
Guest Blogging
Edu/Gov Links
Link Requests
Blog Commenting
Press Releases
Mass/Automated links

And that’s not all; there are countless ways you can start building link for your website. The thing is when most people start link building (doing it yourself or outsourcing it) they focus on the most conventional methods of linking. Sometimes they pump up 1-2 methods of building links. For an example most link builders advertise on forums that you can purchase a link packet for merely 50 bucks and receive 5000 one way links to your website in 3 days. This will boost your website on top for the desired keyword you want. But in reality it doesn’t work. Think about it, if it were so easy then why don’t other people do this to get top rankings and make money? Why people spend thousands of dollars in SEO and link building?

The reality is you get what you pay for.

So if you want a good link building strategy, you have to touch all of the means of backlinking as you can. For an example say you setup a new site on selling sunglasses online. Start your building link by submitting to article directories. Submit your link to 50 directories. Then start writing articles for article directories, post to 50 article directories. So the whole thing may look like this:

Premium Directories – 1-5 Links – 1Week
Directory Submission – 50-100 Submission (30-50 Links) – 1Week
Article Directories – 50 Links – 1Week
Social Bookmarking – 50 Links – 1Week
Forum Posting – 20 Forum Registration (20-30 Links) – 1Week
Paid Links – 1-10 Links – 1Week
Link Exchange – 10 Links – 1Week
Guest Blogging – 5 Links – 1Week
Edu/Gov Links – 10 Links – 1Week
Link Requests – 1-10 Links – 1Week
Blog Commenting – 25 Links – 1Week
Press Releases – 25 Links – 1Week

So with the above rough calculations you can attain roughly 300 domain backlinks in 12 weeks. The total number of backlinks will be higher than this, could be 3000-5000. This is because when you get a backlink from footer or from the sidebar, it counts every page the link is shown. So if I give you a link from BlogKori sidebar, you get 1 domain backlink but you will get total 400+ backlinks because your link will show up in all of the 400 pages this blog has.

Here is a quick overview of the backlink types I have mentioned on top:

Premium Directories: These are paid directories, high editorial standards. 2 of the top directories to name are:

DMOZ (Open Directory) – Free
Yahoo Business Directory – $299/yr

Both of them are useless for 97% of webmasters because DMOZ is hard to get into and they have a waiting list of 5 years. So when your number comes you may have retired from the IM, LOL! Yahoo Directory doesn’t guarantees for the inclusion but the 300/year is so high for most people.

There are other premium directories that don’t cost an arm or leg to get included. Such directories usually charge $29-$97. Better if you can get your site listed in few of these sites. Some niche ones (category specified) cost as low as 10 bucks to get listed. So I have proposed 1-5 links for the first round of link building. This will cost you roughly 100-200 dollars, but the investment is worth it! Here are few of the many paid directories with their fees:

Best Of The Web -$149/yr
DirBull -$66.98
GoGuides -$69.95
Gimpsy -$49
Alma Public Library -$10

Directory SubmissionDirectory Submission: These are all the mass free directories that exist in the cyberspace. In regular these links don’t do any good to website ranking but when it comes to a large number of these and then you will have a good impact for your site. Submit your site to the general class directories. Submit to the ones that has page rank, higher than 4. Less than that is not worth your time. Avoid reciprocal links. It’s not worth your time.

Search for niche directories. Such as if your site is about flowers, then see how many directories specialize in florists or garden niches. Submitting to those sites will give you better value. Any page rank these sites have doesn’t matters. So if your site is about shoes and you found a directory about shoes, then go for it. Doesn’t matters even if that site has just Page Rank Zero or no page rank at all; when it’s on topic, it’s gold –you get the point! Submit to 50-100 sites and out of them you can expect 30-50 live links. Then move on to the next phase. Here is a website that lists all the directories:

Directory Critique

Article Directories: These are article sites where you can submit articles and get a link back to your site from the footer or author resource area. One of the top article site is EzineArticles. To speed up the process and make it less time consuming you can write one article and then spin it. Spinning means changing the words and synonyms of the article so it looks fresh to the search engine. Write 5 articles and spin them to get 10 copies of each, you have 50 copies now. You can use an online article spinner to do this for you. Then you can post these to 10 top level article directories and you will have 50 links when they are accepted. Here is a free online content spinning software you can use: Content Professor. And also these are my favorite article directories that accept spinned articles:

Ezine Articles
Go Articles
Article Blast
Amazines
Idea Marketers
Articles Base
Articles Factory

Social Bookmarking: Social bookmarking sites are user generated content sites such as Digg, Reddit. Delicious etc. Register for 10 top level bookmarking sites and submit 5 posts to these sites. 5×10 = 50 links you will have. Just like other easy link building techniques, these links don’t add any great value to your campaign but in big numbers you have something there! Here are 10 of my favorites:

Social BookmarkingDigg
Reddit
StumbleUpon
Delicious
Folkd
Bibsonomy
Connotea
Diigo
Tagza
BuddyMarks

Forum Posting: Search on google for related forums. Search “your keyword forum” or “your keyword discussion board” –where your keyword means the keyword you are targeting. Find the forums and register for 20 of them you like. Most of these sites will allow you to create a link on your profile. That link is all that you need. Just by registering to 20 different forums and putting your links you can ensure 20 links from different IP addresses or countries. If you want to take one step further then go to the “Introduction” thread of every forum and say HI. That’s all. Most of these forums allow a link to your signature. Create one for a bonus link. We don’t want to spend the whole day on forum posting so let’s move on.

Paid LinksPaid Links: These are links that you have to purchase from other site owners. This can be a good investment. Search for blog directories if you can find related blogs and websites of your topic. See if you can get a good advertisement or paid link opportunity. Links to new blogs may cost $5-10 a month or even $50 a month. We want to save money here so keep looking if you get a good deal. Search on Fiverr, there are lots of webmasters willing to sell links for 5 dollars. Some of them offer a yearly or even a lifetime deal. Great if you can get a yearly deal. Get a few paid links if you have the money but make sure you are not spending a lot just for paid links.

Guest Blogging: Guest blogging will give you more exposure. The thing of guest blogging is that you write a post for another blog. Find these blogs that match your market topic. You can search this on MyBlogGuest forum. You need to produce the best article for these blogs. So make it good so that link will count. Almost every guest post gives out a link back to the author’s site so that’s a WIN WIN situation. Do 5 guest posts and move on.

Edu/Gov linksEdu/Gov Links: These are rumored to be the highest authority links. And yes they are because most of these sites belong to reputable institutes such as harvard.edu or usa.gov. You don’t have to buy links from them. You can build your own. It takes common sense and sharp observation. Most of these sites have a blog where you can comment so that’s how you get a link. Build 10 links of these in any combination and let’s move forward.

Link Requests: AKA link begging. This is a process of emailing other webmasters on giving a link back to your site. This straight approach may be light but “If you don’t ask, the answer will be no“ I have asked many webmasters for links, most of them rejected but some of them were kind enough to link back. All it takes is a few minutes of your time to find the name and email of the webmaster and then send them a personalized email. It works best when you have a relation with that webmaster, your friend or work buddy. So ask links and build 10 of these.

Blog Commenting: This is yet the easiest form of securing a link. You can search a blog and comment or you were reading an interesting post and comment with your link, as simple as that. Some comments allow keywords, some of them don’t. Some are dofollow. Build 25 blog comment links and move on, we don’t have much time for this!

Press Release: These are online press articles you can submit to a number of free sites. I think you have no idea how to write one. Go to fiverr and have one written for you for $5. Then submit your article to the free press release sites. Most of these sites allow a link back to your site so use that on your favor. Build 25 links like this. Here is a list of Free PR sites you can use: (if you see some of them are paid or unreachable, please notify me so I can remove them)

End of Round One

Now that the round one is complete for your link building strategy, you will find that your site has a good standing in the search engine rankings. We did this over the course of 12 weeks (3 months) you can however do all in one week but this is not recommended. Steady growth in backlining is better than fast linking. If you rush for backlinking you will be stressed and lose momentum. In the mean time you have to keep writing new articles and learn new ways of building links and tweaking your site. Once the round one is complete, check your stats that you are progressing and then do the same as round two. Keep doing it until you hit the #1 position for your keyword.

In the next articles I will write details on each of the link building methods I have mentioned above. Do let me know your thoughts and did I miss anything important?

The more activity you get the more edge rank you will have and the more chance you will get to reach new fans.
Update More Often In Your Fan Page

If you want to grow the likes in your facebook fan page then you have to update your page regularly. Post 2 updates to your page every day. The more frequent you post the more you will get the chance to reach your fans. When your fans like or comment on your page post, their friends will see the activity. This will result more exposure and you will get more likes over time. Facebook edge rank depends on the facebook posting frequency and engagement levels.
Post to Other Pages as A Page

You can use facebook as your page

You can use facebook as your page. When you are using it as a page you can search for other bigger brand pages that relate to your niche and then you can post to comments as your page. This will get you more exposure and you will get more facebook fans. With this action you are exposing your page to other people who are already engaged in similar topic.
Add a Like Box to Your Website

The like box is a widget by facebook that allows you to show off your page and fans on your website. Go to facebook developers to get a like box for your site.

Using the fan box your website visitors can like your page without leaving your website

Using the fan box your website visitors can like your page without leaving your website. Place a fan box on your website/blog and see your fan count grows.
Use a like button

Just like the like box, there is a like button that can link to your page. You can add this button on your website footer and get more likes to your facebook page.
Suggest Your Page to Your Friends

You can invite your existing friends from your profile to your fan pageA good technique of getting more likes to your fan page is to invite your facebook friends to your page. You can invite your existing friends from your profile and they will get a notification in their account. But be aware that the people who you are inviting are interested with the topic of your fan page. Otherwise this can backfire as people will start to ignore you on facebook.
Ask People to Share Your Fan Page

Ask your loyal friends to share your facebook page on their wall. You can also instruct them on how they can suggest their friends to like your page. When people like your page it automatically shows up on their activity feed so you always gain exposure for your page whenever someone new likes your page.
Hold Like Contests

This is another strategy that brands hold in order to get more facebook fans. First hold a contest in your page. The winner who will get the most likes on their entry will get the prize. The contestants share and invite their friends to like their entry. In order to like the entry, the new person has to become a fan of your page.
Link to Your Fan Page from Elsewhere

Social media sites allow you to link to your facebook fan pages. Link to your page from your other profiles like twitter, youtube and blog. When you link to your facebook page people can click on it and discover your page easily. It also helps you gain better positions in search engine.
Make It as a Mini Website

Don’t just stop there at the default page layout, add more custom tabs. You can add unlimited custom pages to your facebook page. You can add your blog, custom page and lots of other info –making it a mini website. If people like to hang around more on your page, people will love to share your page to friends. There is an useful app that allows you to create custom tabs in your page.

Rinse and repeat and you shall be able to secure 1000+ facebook likes in no time at all.

How to write an effective blog description and keywords?
inShare

Setting keywords and descriptions are some of the important things in blog SEO. Targeting useful keywords and using them on your blog’s description may put your site on top of different search terms and bring targeted search traffic.

At the very beginning, bloggers find it tricky for them what to do and what not? Keywords are easy but what about description? There is some factors work together in search terms. Some bloggers found their site rank higher in search terms within few months. Most of the times these terms are not that popular enough to bring a burst of traffic.

For an example, my first blog tamalanwar.com has a higher search rank in google for “Bangladesh MLM” and some other related ones. But the fact is I’m not getting hundreds of hits daily for that because it’s not a popular keyword! The thing I learned is that I should look for popular keywords and it’ll take a lot of time and effort to get ranked higher for popular keywords.
Set a blog description under 160 characters

Search engines show up only 160 characters in the search results, so it would be better to keep your description under 160 chars. There are two things that work here, one is the description and the other is Meta description. The first 160 chars will work as your Meta description.

For an example, if you search your blog in google it’ll show the first 160 that it found on the page. So you have to create a special Meta description to ensure maximum exposure. Use your blog’s main keywords in your Meta description. Don’t use your title in it, it’s useless.

“A blog about professional blogging, make money online and creating a better blog. The specialties are in social networking and web design.“
Set keywords

Another important thing for your blog’s SEO are keywords. When I write a new post, I set some keywords for that post. For and example I’ve set google, SEO, search engine etc as the keywords for this post. Google will use these keywords to determine what’s written in this post. This is an easy one but what to do about your blog’s homepage keywords?

The homepage is a tricky one and the contents are always changing. One fine idea is to use your post categories as keywords. Most of the time we try to target keywords that doesn’t belongs to the blog. When I started BlogKori, I tried to target “Bangladesh.” But it was my mistake because my blog was far away from “Bangladesh” and almost no mention about it (Instead of my location!)
Draw an image of your blog :D

Take a piece of sheet and a pen and draw your blog. Now write down what types of posts you’ve written on it? What posts are getting higher place in search results and what are the keywords that visitors are using? You can take help of google analytics to figure this out. This will help you to know some of the common keywords about your blog.

Keywords will not change your stars!

If you think adding few targeted keyword on a Meta tag will take you up on the popular search terms then you’re wasting your time. Adding few keywords will trigger robots to think that this page is about this. TwiTip is a blog all about twitter and it’ll rank higher is search terms because it has lots of words written about it. There’s nothing special about those Meta tags, your blog’s “every word is a keyword”. If you want to get higher ranking for iphone, then you have to add a lot of articles about iphone.
Homepage SEO optimization is not that important

Blogs are special websites and it has more pages than a usual site. Company websites pay a lot of money to opt their homepage because it’s their only entrance. But with a blog any page can outrank thousands of other websites or even your own homepage. I remember when I had my first blog, blog-success.blogspot.com, one of its post about “reverse ad strategy” had Page rank 4, but the actual homepage was still a PR 3.
Keep the changes for longer

As you have your blog’s control, you can change the blog’s title, description, and keywords 10 times a day! It’s a bad thing for SEO because it’ll hurt your rank. All of your posts are being checked regularly by google. Each post get’s a position but when there’s a change in the post, google re-organizes the will index to fit with the updated version. Now when google will do it, another new site may take your position and throw you in the bottom of the results page. Don’t do these mistakes what I did before, make changes and leave them for another 6-12 months.
