Blogging is all about sharing information about something you’re passionate about, or at least good at. No matter what your industry or niche is, blogging can help you reach out to your target market on a large-scale basis. If you’ve ever had a blog that failed miserably, isn’t it important to understand why it failed?
5 Tips for Keeping Your Blog from Failing
Want to know why blogs fail, or why yours is failing? Well, we’re here to help. Here are five top reasons why blogs fail, along with tips for avoiding failure.
1. Not giving visitors something to keep them engaged before launching: Once your blog launches, you could possibly start getting visitors in just days. When they reach your blog, you want to make sure there’s content available to keep them there. Try to publish about 20+ articles before launching.
2. Not taking advantage of Facebook (FB) Fan Pages: Post links to new content on your Facebook Fan Page. Even if you only have a few FB friends, those likes, comments and shares can go along way. Remember, each one of these actions makes the post live in the users FB newsfeed as well.
3. Not sharing great content with other relevant blogs: Some bloggers create great content, but never want to share it. This is one of the reasons why blogs fail. You should contact owners of other relevant blogs and do guest blogging for them. Some will allow you to add links within your content. Others simply allow a link within your byline. Either way, you’re building backlinks. You’re also establishing yourself as an industry leader.
4. Not allowing readers to leave comments: When you turn off comments, you’re essentially asking visitors to read your content, then go away. This tells them that you could care less about what they have to say. Let your readers leave informative and inquisitive comments. Many will actually start conversations, which go along way on successful blogs.
5. Not learning any SEO practices whatsoever: It’s your blog. So, if you’re the one writing the posts, you need to be practicing at least the basics of SEO. One of the reasons why blogs fail is because bloggers refuse to learn anything about SEO keywords. You don’t have to know it like a pro, just enough to get traffic to your blog posts.
