Getting your blog noticed takes time and effort, and in most cases, it’s not something that just happens overnight! We’ve got a few resources to help you to rock the parent blogging world. In short, you’ve got to build up your reputation within your niche, to make sure you’re a source people want to come back to, for information, and to just share in the life you like to write about online.
It can be quite a long process, and everyone has a different kind of success with it. But if you’re curious about what tends to get a blog, parent blogs included, noticed the most – here are some of the most common methods below. Why not put them to good use yourself!
It’s complicated, it takes time; so track it!
Of course, it’s complicated. Getting your blog noticed is going to take a lot of work, and not all of the methods out there are going to work out well for you. Depending on the niche you blog in, and whether or not you’ve found your ‘tribe’ yet, you’re going to have mixed results with everything you try. It’s important to keep that in mind before you get going with any SEO implementation plans, or affiliate marketing schemes, or writing on a semi-regularly basis.
You’ve got to keep at it, above all else, and not let yourself be held back by something turning out less than stellar in practice.
It is important to accept that complicated take time, so you have to have the patience and resolve to keep at it. Keep a record of that you’ve done and when you started it to see how its affecting traffic, and revenues. If you have a tracking system in place, it’ll help you know what is working, and what isn’t!
Make sure you’re online regularly
If you want your blog to be noticed, then you need to be online as regularly as possible, during the initial setup and early days of work. You need to be a flexible and accessible person, who can write blog posts regularly (perhaps a few times a week), and stick around for a while to post across social media, and connect with other bloggers and your readers as well. Why does a blog take so much maintenance?
Because when you’re online, you’ve got your finger on the pulse, and you’ll be able to react on time, every time. You’ll be in the right place to write some quality content, and you’ll have the time and space on hand to carefully craft your SEO, as well as research the niche you’re in and help yourself fit it a bit better.
Google Trends is a great place to watch for subjects that are on the rise online – why not make a habit of checking it, and popping relevant topics on there onto your blog that fit with your niche?
Be interesting with your branded content
You also need to be interesting with the adverts you come up with; so that is the branded content that you are writing for your clients, as well as the ones you allow to be placed on your website by affiliate marketers and other blogging companies.
Make sure you know what ratio you are happy with as well of advertising vs organic content, and try and stick to it.
Most of all, you need to be sure that the adverts you’re placing are relevant; when they’re relevant and acceptable, your readers are going to find them interesting no matter what!
Let’s say you’re running an educational platform – what advert would be best to get people to sign up to a mailing list? Well, maybe some pop up ads for eLearning companies could help you out here; post a money off coupon for a learning experience? That guarantees you a very interested reader who wants to come back for more!
Keep it in niche, and on point; you don’t want to be offering a piece of advertorial content on decorating your bathroom, if your write about bikes, do you?!!?
