It’s very important if you want to apply some SEO or search engine optimization techniques to your blog. When a search engine start searching for any specific keyword, first it start looking searching in the domain name for that keyword and 2nd time it start searching in the title or description and others parts.
You can consider my blog address as an example. My blogging topic is about various secret tips to make online money. That’s why I choose http://hiddensecrets-onlinemoney.blogspot.com/, I have included three master keywords “secrets” ”online” and” ”money”. Try to choose an easy memorable domain name always.


4. Blog Title and Description:
After choosing a suitable domain name, give an attractive title and description of your blog. Give a nice and easy understandable description of your blog below the title. Describe what is your blog about, your blogging purposes etc in this section. Don’t provide anything that is not related to your blogging topic. The title and description will appear on the opening page, so when your readers will not find something they are looking for, they will leave.


5. Choosing a Template:
For any beginner blogger I will recommend to work with the default template at first. The classic and other available templates in blogger.com are easy to optimize for any new blogger. You can change your template any time. Initially keep focus on writing article is very important. There are lots of free wonderful templates for blogs on the internet. After gathering some well experiences it will be very easy to optimize blog with any template which could help you to to bring more traffic. Than you can choose a template that reflects your blogging theme. If your blogging topic is about motorbike than you must not use an airplane template !

Your Title of any blog post must be related with your blog title. If your blog is about computer tips than you should not write anything about Hollywood movie!

Secret Tips to Create a Better Blog Post



The main key for a successful blog is traffic; lots of traffic brings success easily for any blog. Traffic depends on various criteria. One of the most important parts of a blog is a nice and attractive post title to attract readers.

There is a say “morning shows the day”.
So, what’s inside a post, many readers can make a guess seeing the title of that post. Better posts always influence readers to come back for more in a blog. A good title can easily catch the eye of the readers. Sometimes an exceptional content easily catch reader’s eyes.

Here are some basic guidelines that will help to create a better blog post:

Reader’s Priority:
One of the main criterion for an optimized blog is to give priority to your readers, not the Search Engines. Getting Index quickly in search engine depends on blog traffic and back link. And traffic depends on the quality of post. If any reader does not satisfy with your writings, he won’t come back again to read more. Before write any post, examine your audience. What kind of readers will read your blog, what will be more attractive and helpful to them, what they want in your writings? Always make answer to readers comments, always try to give thanks for their comment.


Tell the truth:
Be honest, don’t give any wrong information. For example, if you write any product review than don’t give any wrong information about your product. Don’t try to attract your readers by providing any kind of false information. It could drop off your product goodwill. Beside quality of your products describe the side effects if any, and provide some solutions about those effects. Don’t try to hide anything; your audience could be cleverer than you. Another important thing is don’t hide the real writer in your blog. A successful blogs are written in honest way are most popular.


Quality:
Give special attention to the quality of your posts; always try to write quality contents for your blog. You must have a target audience for your blog. Determine who are your primary audience and secondary audience. Identify what kind of information they want in your writings. Provide information according to their need. They could like professional information, gaming information, fun or any others, try to fulfill their expectations. Find out what tone will be appropriate for your blog and keep writing in that tone. Quality content is not only necessary for your audience; it will help to improve PageRank of your blog.


Providing other links:
Lots of blog you will find on the internet that only providing link to other blogs or websites. Some bloggers just only give link to other sites. If you go to their site they will not tell you details about your desired topic in their own blogs. This is not a good practice if you want to be a better blogger. Many readers don’t want to follow a big trail of link.
They hit your site, so definitely they will look in your blog for their subject. If they don’t get it they will leave from you, may be leave forever. So, be careful about that. You can provide your own page link into your blog and show your readers the reasons to stay with you. I am not telling you that you won’t provide any link to others, but link to other sites must be logical (not a trap).


Don’t steal others:
One of the most important things in blogging is copyrighting. Always avoid plagiarism, stealing or copying from other blogs. Your site could be penalized or banned for this reason. Don’t make a copy-paste blog, if you so than search engines will treat your blog as a spam.
Try to write from your own. About 95% of bloggers failed to succeed in blogging due to writing own article. It’s tough but not so tough! Try to write something from scratch, follow others but don’t try to copy others, create something better than others.
If you want to discuss about other blogs or writings, than you must provide a back link or references to the original source.


Length:
The length of a post is depends on your writing skills. If you can provide detail information and can attract your readers than I will suggest you to write a big post (could be more than 600 words). If your readers like your post they will read it, the length is not matter.
If you write a blog about providing information than you can write a short post (could be less than 500 words). The length is actually depends on your writing topic and information you want to provide. It could be short or long. But whatever the length is, try to write an accurate and interesting post which will be able to catch your reader’s attention.

That’s enough for today. You can make your comments below.

Best of LUCK !

Most common Tips to pick a better Blog Topic



Blogging is easy but better blogging is not easy!

Millions of blogs are being created daily on various platforms like blogger, wordpress, today or self hosted blogs. But only 1 or 2 % of these turned into a successful blog on the net as per my opinion. And every year Google (Blogger) clean up their blog database and remove a number of blogs.


If your blog can’t attract your readers, you can’t become a successful blogger, traffic is the main key to success in this field. Whatever the reason of your writing, it could be just for fun, for making money online or others, but all you need is lots of traffics.

Here are some tips to choose a better topic for a blog. These tips will be helpful for any new blogger:


Pick a topic that you know well:
Have you ever seen in your school, college or university that a teacher of physics was taking chemistry classes?! I know you didn’t. Cause, a teacher of physics know physics well, he can’t take a better class about chemistry.
So, before starting a blog always choose a topic that you can tell your readers more details about it. This is the most important part of blogging. If your readers like your article, definitely they will look for your updates regularly and they will comment on your writings, even they may ask you for something. And if they don’t find their desired answers, they will leave you. So, before starting your blog think about your topic which you know well. Take some time and choose a good one.


Pick a Topic that you feel passion for it:
A successful blogger regularly update his blogs. Not only a blogger, a successful webmaster, publisher, internet marketer any other person related to internet marketing updates their sites regularly. It’s better to update a blog in daily if you get the opportunity to do that; even it can be done in several times a day. Cause the Content is King.

Your readers will always look for new, unique, updated and latest contents. Motivate yourself about the topic of your blog for a long time. Don’t choose a subject that you don’t enjoy very much or you don’t have passion for it; otherwise it will be very tough to keep your readers. Try to write something that will come truly from your heart.


Pick a topic that you like to converse with others:
A successful blogger always communicate with his readers. Giving priority to reader’s comments is one of the main criteria of a better blog. So try to discuss about various issue with your readers always, make comments on fellow bloggers blog, it will help to increase your blogging experiences. Be responsive and be receptive about your reader’s comments and questions. You can make a conversation about various new posts in your blog. Ask your reader’s what they want in your writing. Write something that will attract to your readers to make comments on it.


Pick a topic that you like to debate with others
We all are not same or like-minded. There are different kinds of people around the world. Sometimes your readers will not agree with you. They will give their opinions which will be different from yours. As your blog become grows more people will find it on the internet. Some will give their own opinions which won’t go to your side.

A successful blogger always like to discuss with readers form various angels and appreciate a strong debate. Your readers or you, anyone could be right or wrong, a healthy debate will helps to find out which is right and which is wrong. Sometimes your readers could attack you personally. Don’t loose your patience; you need to have a thick skin that will deflect personal attacks and a strong differing opinion.


Pick a topic that you like to research:
Technology is changing every time. You need to move fast to keep yourself up-to-date with this changing. I told before that a loyal readers always looking for new, fresh, latest and Meaningful contents.

Read other blogs, NEWS and articles that are related to your topic. You’re your eyes open, search for current events. This will help you to update your blog frequently. A nice topic will help you to become a successful blogger.
