Things that successful bloggers won’t tell you

Over the recent years, Internet blogging got so many eyes over on it. Because of the potential success, you can earn from on it. Most of the people start blogging after they went over some successful blogs. Ironically, most successful blogs teach you how to create money-making blogs.

So I decided to write this post to mainly explain the pain points and behind the scenes of blogging. Which is not told by the successful blogs you come across. My perception and views might be little different if you have an opinion about it.Feel free to discuss in the comments.

Things that successful bloggers won't tell you
Things that successful bloggers won’t tell you

1.Blogging is not easy

Blogging is not an easy job to do unless you are a great writer with full of passion in it or you have crazy ideas to attract attention. The reason because is that, most of the internet content is well created already. So if you have a plan to make dive into the deep ocean, come up with unique ideas rather than following the same stupid successful blog series which tells you how to make successful blogs.

2.No Passion, No money

If you got so much excited seeing other bloggers earning income and decided to jump in with the dream of making millions. Stop it right there. You need a passion for creating blog rather than only making money out of it. The more you passionate about the blog, the more you work hard and create great content for it. So do not jump in untill you are really really ready.

3.Successful blogs are history

Most of the successful blogs are early adopters before even you get to know about blogging. They have high winning probability than all others who are coming behind. They will be still successful even if they don’t make anything unique other than their way into success. Since they are all history. And technically, they have the huge advantage over us.

4.Don’t be a sheep

Do you want to stand out? Then stop being a sheep. Stop following things blindly and start thinking how to use them wisely. Most of the blogs run from the curiosity of early bloggers. So know who to follow and what to do by all yourself by analyzing and researching lot of things.

5.You can’t make money overnight

You never can make money out of overnight using a blog. Blogging takes weeks, months or even years to give the result like a tree you plant. So stop expecting money from it. keep doing your job. If you are really good at it, then you don’t even need to move your thumb to make money out of it. It will automatically happen.

Why I wrote this?

I have seen many people on the internet thinking that they can make a hugely successful blog just by following some of the successful blogs. Getting inspired is no wrong but don’t make a stupid out of yourself.

Everything needs a time and hard work. So if you are really into blogging then jump on it. Put other things aside and keep writing great content that will be useful for so many people.

And you can be definitely successful one day.

I put it aside a lot of technical stuff involved in blogging when am writing this. Because if you don’t possess those things mentioned above. All other remaining things are useless to consider.

How to Improve pagespeed of your blog – step by step guide part-2

As I have mentioned in the previous post. This post is going to be step by step guide to show how to improve pagespeed of your blog.

1.Improve your server speed

Choose your hosting service provider efficiently. Make sure you choose a good server with great speed to make the response quicker. I will keep this simple since it’s a factor which you don’t have much control. So don’t go for the cheap hosting servers with slowness.

2.Compress your images:

Most of the blogs have a good amount of images. Even though you might think they take very less space. When comes to speed they became a great influencing factor in it.

How to compress your images?

You can compress your images and scale it manually using design tools or else you can do as I did for this blog. I have done a quick search on image compressing plugins on WordPress and found this amazing plugin which will take care of your image compression problem.

Plugin Name: WP SMUSH

How to use it?

It’s very simple. Install it and go to the plugin setting page. Once you installed, it will automatically smush the new images as you upload. For old images, you should give bulk smash in the setting page.

As simple as that, congratulations you have made all your images compressed and optimized.

If you want to know more about the plugins i use to run this blog read this 10 WordPress plugins you must have for your blog.

3.Minify your CSS/JS:

Most of the plugins and themes you have will have style file with extension .css. In most cases, it might be a difficult job to find out all the files and compress it, if you are a non-techy person. However, there are few places where you can go and make the change all by yourself.

There are plugins to compress your css which will be latered cover on. In case you have minimal theme as like me, you can go ahead to Appearence->Editor->style.css.

Now copy the entire code, go ahead to https://cssminifier.com/ paste the code get the compressed result and paste back in your style.css. You are done.

or else you can install this awesome plugin which will compress your javascript and CSS files just by checking few checkboxes.

Plugin Name: Autooptimize

It’s very straightforward go ahead install it and choose the options on the checkboxes according to your need.

 

Before performing all these steps:

After performing the above steps:

Quite a bit of improvement. But it can be even more improved. Let’s go on.

4.Enable Caching

Caching (pronounced “cashing”) is the process of storing data in a cache. A cacheis a temporary storage area. For example, the files you automatically request by looking at a Web page are stored on your hard disk in a cache subdirectory under the directory for your browser

By enabling caching will avoid request often and serve the stored files. It gives a great amount of improvement in your performance since requests are getting avoided at the second time.

How to enable caching?:

There are two plugins i have tried.

Plugin Name: WP Super Cache

Plugin Name: WP fast cache

Bot perform great. While Super Cache has the more advanced function which might not require all the time. I stick with minimal version plugin wp fast cache.

So just go ahead install the plugin and the settings are self-explanatory. You can easily configure it.

After I done caching:

There you go. You have got the awesome page speed result for yourself. Go through each steps and do the same. Google has an awesome suggestion list for you so it’s very easy to track where the problem is. Feel free to let your thoughts or doubts in the comment and subscribe our blog for more random tech post.

What else can be done?

  • CDN SUPPORT
  • FONT-FILE LOCALIZATION

Which i am not ready to implement now. So avoided it for now. That are the only two things which i can improve more on this blog.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to Improve pagespeed of your blog- step by step guide

I had decided to give a try on improving my page speed to improve my search engine ranking and made a step by step progress to improve my blog page speed. In case you wonder what is page speed?

Page speed is often confused with “site speed,” which is actually the page speed for a sample of page views on a site. Page speed can be described in either “page load time” (the time it takes to fully display the content on a specific page) or “time to the first byte” (how long it takes for your browser to receive the first byte of information from the web server).

No matter how you measure it, a faster page speed is better. Many people have found that faster pages both rank and convert better.

Moz

 

Since it’s an important factor for page rank as well as user experience. It’s an important factor which is not should be ignored while you building your blog.

If you bought a premium WordPress theme which might be already be optimized for page speed.If you are using free themes you must have to tweak it to perform better in speed.

In both the cases, you can measure you page speed using google.

How to check page speed?

  1. Just visit https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/ to know about google page speed insight.
  2. You can check your website speed here using this tool .
  3. You can check my blog latest result here.

Google will measure both your mobile and desktop performance and indicates the improvement. If you are in green zone, you are well and good. If you are in red, you are in deep trouble. The scores are out of 100 which makes it easier to understand where your blog stands.

 You can check your blog mobile load time here quickly and can get a full report on it.

How to create a backlink from a high quality blog

For those who are a regular reader here would have known that i write a backlink short series which demonstrates how i create a high-quality backlink from various sources.

How to create a backlink from a high quality blog

If you are new and not aware of the backlink series i write, you can read the previous posts from below links

  1. How to create backlink from Youtube
  2. How to create backlink from Medium

So today we are going to see how to create a backlink from a high-quality blog.  There are plenty of ways to do it, i  am going to share what i have tried and what made the backlink for me.

So I have searched through online and find out more relevant niche sites close to my site niche. These are the few i tried to get onto it

and lot more that i couldn’t able to track them all.

So now let’s see how to get a backlink from this blogs.There are only a few ways to get the backlink from this blogs which are

  1. Broker link reporting
  2. Guest Posting
  3. Blog comments

While the first two takes needs a lot of work to put in.  The third one is the easy way to go. I have done the third one, so i am going to explain more on that. Other techniques will be addressed in the same series as soon as i explored on it.

I have gone through a lot of those blog posts read them and commented my thoughts on it with my website link. Most of this blogs ask’s your website link as an option and some of them don’t.  

The best way is using predefined form option to mention your website link rather than adding it in your comment text which might make you look like a spammer.

It’s good to not add your website link in a comment to get through the approval process. But, however if you find you have so much relevance through your website link then feel free to give it a try by adding it in your comment text. 

Most of these blogs have an approval system, so your comment may or may not pass the moderation system. So in my case, Out of plenty blogs i tried, i could able to get the backlink as soon as possible from startwithclick.com.

I have followed the same comment procedure in startwithclick , Since my comment got approved quick and got some traction of traffic from it to my website. It’s got the faster backlink.

How to create a backlink from a high quality blog

With minimal effort commenting on a high quality blog can  get you a quick backlink as well as a quality ones. So i hope this made you clear the blindness involved in how blog commenting can help you in getting high quality backlink.

What about the remaining blogs?

As you would have been aware now, i have to able to crack only the one source i have mentioned from the list above. The reason for that is

  1. The sites in the list receives huge amount of comments, so it take a while to comment get appeared publicly online.
  2. There might be a chance of my comments getting into spam or trash.
  3. Search engine takes a lot of time in tracking the backlink. So i need be patient to look for the reaming results.

Apart from this, there is no reason i am seeing in not getting backlinks from all the blogs. I hope this post would have helped you and cleared your mind about blog commenting usefulness. For more interesting post feel free to subscribe us. If you want to ask questions feel free to do it in comments.

Point to Note:

You will have higher chance, if you target some medium level popular blogs instead of going for most famous blogs and websites.

Keep watching this post, i may update the list as soon as i get one backlink from the blog lists i have mentioned.

blog is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (“posts”). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page

The one who writes the post regularly is considered to be a blogger.

So let’s get started

The first question to ask before you are going to start a blog. Is it going to be a hobby or professional thing? If you are planning to write the blog as hobby/passion and don’t have any intention of making income out of it. Then, this is the best two options for you to get started.

Free Blogging Platforms:

Skills Needed:

  • Writing skills
  • Basic computer skills

Just sign up for an account and you can get started in 2 mins.

Recommendation: If you are looking for quick readers, blogger is the option to go for. Since it automatically serves your blog around the world using their own platform.

Paid Blogging Platforms:

Next option, you are serious about your writing and also open for the option to make some income out of it. Then you should go for self-hosted CMS(Content Management system). While there are many the best one is WordPress and is quite popular as a blogging platform.Ok now let’s get further into this

After you sorted out with the basic domain name and hosting you can easily setup a WordPress account based on the hosting website guide. Most of the hosting companies have a one click installation for WordPress latest version so it’s a quite easy task to do.

WordPress Requirement

  • Themes
  • Plugins

Once you are up and running the internet. You need to choose a theme for your website. There are many free theme available as well as premium themes. You can always try to get started with free themes. However premium themes make your blog more professional.

Recommendation: Try to use the free themes first to know how things works. Once you are good and comfortable go for premium themes. Otherwise, if you already have a plan of how your website should look, then feel free to directly go for premium themes.

Few examples to make you kick start

How to increase the blog traffic quickly

We all been in the situation to get some quick traffic on our blog. Currently, i have faced a lot of questions about this on Quora, I have decided to write my personal trick which I used and seems to given result for me.

I want this to keep it short and simple. So for a new blog (currently this blog has been old just one plus week) to get indexed in a search engine to drive enough traffic will take few weeks to a month.  Even though the lot of optimization you do. So the best opportunity to drive instant traffic is social media.

Another important thing is to consider is the content. If you don’t have some interesting content then there is no point of performing Search engine optimization as well as social media marketing.

So these are the two essential things to drive instant traffic to your blog

  • Great Viral Content
  • Social Media Marketing

So now we have these two factors in mind, I am going to share a strategy which I implemented two days back. Which gained me a lot of traction on this blog. Please note that my blog is just less than two weeks old.

Before the Strategy:

How to increase the blog traffic quickly
How to increase the blog traffic quickly

After the strategy:

How to increase the blog traffic quickly
How to increase the blog traffic quickly

As you can see for the past one week i had only 43 visitors, but within these two days, i have got almost 239 visitors without the help of search engine.

So what i  really did?

I have recently used the GOT night king filter in Facebook, when i tried to use it again i couldn’t able to figure it out for some time and then i got it working again. Then i googled about how to add night king filter on Facebook. There was no direct post for it all the links were had only the news.

So i decided to quickly grab the attention and opportunity and wrote this post a yesterday 01:00 AM. Since i am aware of the fact fresh the content on the internet, more the traffic.

How to add night king filter on Facebook

Then I shared it in few page and my profile in Facebook and slept. As I expected the traffic went high, i was able to get around more than 170 users in the same night since the content is viral and all the referral is from Facebook and the hit is still going on.

If you feel the numbers i have shared is very low +3520.00% increase in the user from the previous week.

To conclude, with the right content and a good social media marketing you can quickly grab a quick traffic for your blog before even you get indexed.

This is not the only way to grab the traffic, however, this is something i tried and worked out very quickly. So feel free to share your experiment below in comments and for more interesting technical random post subscribe us.
