Blogging tips....

You’ve been diligent in your postings, responding to readers’ questions earnestly and seems to be doing everything right but you don’t seems to be able to get past this moribund number of readers and participation level. You wondered what could be wrong. It’s your Content – Stupid!. I don’t mean to be blunt here but the truth of the matter is content that is routine and predictable does not work the magic of stimulating your readers to action – be it comments, backlinks, clickthroughs, or whatever that is you are looking for. And no amount of SEOs, layouts, blog redesigns or plugins are going to get you out of this slump. The good news is that you don’t have to do much to get yourself out of this bind, all it takes is a little bit of tweaking of your content here and there.


Here are some ideas that have been time tested :

1. Killer Headline -

Your blog topic’s headline is the first thing that your visitor sees – so it better be captivating enough to catch their attention. The objective here is to pique their curiosity enough to take a further look into it. Like everything else its easier said then done because the law of averages works against you here - less than 2 percent of the visitors that see your headline will actually read the rest of the blog topic. So quite simply put if you want to increase your odds of beating the averages, you need a better headline. One way to get great ideas for blog topics is to get yourself into the habit of checking out the popular pop culture magazines and also what’s making it into the front pages of Digg, Delicious and other popular social media networks.
