Daily Blog Tips
Over the years, I have been guilty of NOT blogging as regularly as required to REALLY ramp up the traffic numbers. It is evident in my traffic stats, when I do actually make more of an effort to blog on a consistent basis, that the amount of visitors does significantly increase.
I plan to publish a before and after image of my stats by the end of next month. I will be very surprised – given past experiences with blogging – if my numbers haven’t gone up significantly.
What I am already beginning to see after a week or so, is that the traffic to individual posts on this blog have increased. Also, posts in my archives which are months or even years old have been given a boost in the search engines and are starting to receive some Google traffic.
You DO have to blog constantly and consistently but what I have found in the past is that traffic numbers WILL NOT drop off right away, if you do stop blogging. Obviously if you can keep up the pace then you should try to blog at least once per day. Or, set a weekly quota – ie. 3 times per week – and stick to that number of posts, every week.
I wouldn’t recommend not updating your blog for too long or your sites’ position will certainly drop right off the search engines.
My experiences are backed up by all of the successful bloggers that I’ve been watching recently. They all echo the notion that you MUST keep your blog updated on a regular basis.
Here’s a few tips that I’ve personally used when I run out of ideas for blog posts:
1. Find an article from Ezinearticles.com and rewrite it in your own words. This is NOT plagiarism as long as you have significantly changed the article. What usually happens when I do this is that I end up adding many of my own ideas and experience. The new article usually ends up completely unrecognizable from the original.
2. Resurrect or update some previous posts to the front of your blog. If you’ve been blogging for a while then you could find a post in your archives, and update it to reflect any changes that have happened in your niche in the time since it was posted. Nothing ever stays the same online. So, you’d be surprised if you look at some of those old posts, how things have changed.
3. Give a quick rundown of how you business day has gone. This is an easy way to update your blog. Even if you’ve only answered some emails, tweaked your blog or whatever, once you start to write it all down you’ll find that there is enough content for a blog post or two.
Above is a few quick tips that come to mind. I’m sure you can think of many more. Maybe you could add your own in the comments field below.
