CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Blogging is an Art. Saying that, let me jump into the 5 major mistakes that bloggers do these days that brings an end to their blogging career. Blogging is one powerful arena where the stadium is only meant for Challengers who have some Guts. Others will easily be Terminated by Time. You Read, You Understand, and You Write. What’s the point in making so much of mistakes to kill these three Precious process then? There might be some more mistakes newbie bloggers do these days, you may add them in the comments below if you feel like I have missed some.
Mistake #1: Asking Facebook Likes through Facebook Chat
This is seriously one big annoying activity that many do. The problem comes when you newly add some bloggers or internet marketers who will be busy with some work, and without knocking in, posting link asking them to Like your Page or Like your Post on Facebook. There is nothing wrong in such surprises, unfortunately many feels it as an annoying thing and simply unfriend you or never reply to your chat message that has link in it.
So initiate a talk and see if he/she is free to share your link and interested to do such before barging in and screaming out with a link.
Mistake #2: Spamming across Social Networks
Posting your newly posted links to various groups and pages is awesome, but do you ever thought that your friends will simply see such links for the number of times you posted on their wall. Which will flood your friends wall, and they may use the “Hide Posts by User” option to block all your future quality posts as well. So post a link once a day and let your social networking readers enjoy it.
Mistake #3: Sending Emails Containing Links to Fellow Bloggers
Bloggers are so strict with Emails and it becomes their important tool that handles everything, and in few days it will be the same for you as well. But sending links to a blogger like an anonymous person is really a risk. Even to non-bloggers, there are chances that they may click on Report Spam button. And you know the rest. So always send emails to the people who are interested. Convince them to subscribe to your mailing list by the way you blog. Never Beg or Order people through Email.
Mistake #4: Asking Free Hosting and Domain
This happens as a rare case, but when you try to become a blogger, Blogspot and WordPress free blogging tools are pretty enough. Of course there are some special reasons to consider self hosted blogging, but for startup stage you can use the world’s famous platforms to start your blog and run successfully without any worries about Downtime, Customer Support and Server related issues. There are famous blogs that used Blogspot as the platform before moving to a self-hosted blog (ex: Labnol.org) and many other. Did you know that Techcrunch.com is still using WordPress servers? Yes they are using premium server plans but there are tons of benefits in running a blog at hosted environment too. To make some revenue its not at all bad and to be honest, its Perfect and a Brilliant choice you have made.
Mistake #5: Choosing a Niche that you are Not Expert at
This is seriously the biggest mistake these days many do. If you are not sure about SEO, then don’t start an SEO blog, How come you can solve the problems that people face on SEO and provide proper guide? What if you provided an obsolete technique and the reader to your blog have tried it and failed miserably? To be honest, you are absolute responsible in that case. So if you know to cook well, start a blog about Cooking. Millions are searching every day to read recipes online and to try it in their home.
I tried searching in Google and trying some recipes when I was working at some part of India, as I was tired eating at Hotel. So choose a perfect niche to match your standards.
So just choose the field that you are interested in, and many simply ignore after finding that you all do is just an SEO Tactic to pull them to your blog. Trust me, that will push the Arrow on your Analytics Bounce Rate graph to high every time you get such wrong clicks.
Spend more time at Reading and Implement them quickly before that technique becomes obsolete. 🙂 All the very best and thanks a ton for your patience and time you have taken to read this one.
