5 Best ways to Make Your Blog Visible To Search Engines

Submit your blog Search Engines

It’s one of the simplest ways to effectively increase visibility to your readers. Submit your blog to popular search engines like Google, Bing, yahoo etc. You can also create sitemaps.

Update your blog regularly

If your blog has been noticed already by viewers, you need to populate it with fresh updates on a regular basis so people will always be looking forward to visiting it.

Select an attractive and unique blog template.

The site’s appearance is the first thing a visitor will ever see, so by having a beautiful, clean and sleek design, you can attract more followers. But be careful in selecting a design. Pick the theme that will mostly help convert your posts. Go for a more professional look if you want to promote your brand.

Interact with your readers.

Constant interaction and activity with your audience is a must if you want your blog to get noticed. Allow readers to post comments on your posts and reply to them. This increases your blog’s chances of being visible because of keywords written by your readers.

Use Social Networking and bookmarking sites

Social networking and bookmarking sites have the power to connect to a lot of people all over the globe, so use them to your advantage. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. are especially useful tools in expanding your network.

5 Things To Do After Publishing A Blog Post

Leave a Comment

Many bloggers believe that their job ends at pressing the ‘Publish’ button, which is not true at all. A blog post needs many things to be done after it has been published. This article will discuss five things that one must do after publishing a blog post. Note that not all might be applicable for your blog conditions and environments, thus you’re advised to carefully analyze before following all the things mentioned below.5 Things To Do After Publishing A Blog PostAlso make sure that your post is already in its best form i.e. it contains relevant interlinks, the on-page SEO is up to the mark and is formatted in the best way possible. If all is done, then you’re free to publish the post and then quickly follow the tips mentioned in this post.

01) Ping Your Blog

It is always recommended to quickly ‘ping’ your blog to the search engines so that the new posts can be indexed as soon as possible. A very easy way to ping your blog is by using an online tool known as Ping-o-Matic, which pings and updates your blog in the eyes of major search engine services.  Although there are hundreds of such services out there, Ping-o-Matic focuses on the important ones.

It also provides a direct bookmark, which when clicked will automatically ping your blog. Therefore, you’ll not have to write the details again and again.

02) Manual Tweeting

Although your blog might be automatically shared on social networks, there is something which is different when you do it manually. For example, if you tweet a post manually, you can add your own desired hashtags, @mention people (the author, for example) etc. Sharing your posts manually is always a different aspect than to have it being done automatically.

03) Manual Updating On Facebook

Just like in the case above, there are several tools which can automatically post updates on Facebook for your new blog posts. But again – doing it manually just makes things better. For example, you might want to share the link along with an image. Such activities are not done by the automatic tools.

You can also promote your updates by paying a small fee to Facebook. Promotions guarantee a wide reach to the fans, and their friends. Normal fees to promote a single post are $5-10.

04) Social Bookmarking

There are social sites from where you might not get much traffic, but yet sharing on such sites is vital because you get the backlinks. Be it dofollow or nofollow, you are getting the backlinks. Social bookmarking sites such as Delicious, Reddit, Stumble Upon, ScoopIt etc. posses a very high page rank, therefore the backlinks that your blogs get are quality.

Remember that backlinks will be responsible for increasing the organic traffic of your blog. If not now, then definitely later.

05) Asking Friends To Share

Asking your friends to share your blog posts, if the posts are worth it, has never been a harm and will never be one. If you believe that your posts deserve a share, why not ask for one from your friends. You can also tag them, which will influence them to share the posts without being asked directly.

New To Blogging? Avoid These Things For Now

Leave a Comment

It is any new blogger’s dream to be on the top in the niche some day. Even today, many people join the blogging world just by reading those eBooks by successful bloggers. These new people often get inspired by the current successful ones, but they forget that they’re yet new to blogging. The successful ones have been through a lot of hard work, dedication, failures (yes!) and much more.

New To Blogging? Avoid These Things For Now

The article should rather be taken personally because I’m assuming that you, the reader, are yet new to blogging and hence I’m addressing you with all the points mentioned here. Mentioned below are five things you should avoid as a newbie blogger.

Being The Multi-Tasker

Being new in the blogosphere, you might get some exciting engagement on your blog posts. This often happens as the ‘settled’ bloggers often welcome the new ones by leaving comments on the posts, sharing them around and make them feel that they have actually taken a great step.

The unseen problem here is that the new bloggers, being over-excited, often start a new blog in a different niche! That means that instead of excelling with the just-started blog, there’s already one more out there. Give it a break, and focus on what you’ve started rather than starting a new project.

Falling For Stupid Offers

Newbies are often offered offers which tend to ruin their blogging career. Some of such offers are the following.

      • Buying Twitter Followers
      • Buying Facebook Likes
      • Buying Traffic (The worst thing ever)
      • Exchanging Clicks On ads

Such offers look nice from far, but as you go near they are terrifying. It is strongly advised that you never fall for such offers. They might do good to you now, but will surely make you regret later.

Forceful Monetization

Most bloggers start a niche blog in order to make money blogging, which is a good thing as they do deserve it. But the problem is that the monetization part takes the highest priority instead of being the lowest. New blogs are often filled up with ads all around. Sidebars, Headers, In-Content, Footers etc. is hardly empty for the new blogs.

This is not a good practice, as quality speaks not the ads. You should always wait for the money. When it has to come, it will. You need to force it by putting the useless ‘magnets’ to attract the money.

Those were three basic things to avoid as a new blogger. Once you settle in the blogosphere, the following shall be the scenario.

  • Point Number 1 should be fine now – no issues!
  • You wouldn’t need to buy anything – as you’ll be getting it all!
  • Money shall flow towards you – for sure.

The above mentioned bullets shall take place once you become a so called successful blogger. Until then, you are new to blogging and don’t go for the mentioned points.

How To Add & Style A “Read More” Link In WordPress Excerpt

Leave a Comment

How To Add & Style A “Read More” Link In WordPress ExcerptThe WordPress excerpt is part of the post content, excluding the headings and media, that is taken and displayed where called (in the template file). The most basic and definite reason why excerpts are more preferred than the <!–more–> tags is that there is nothing required from the users side. Once called in the template by the theme, the excerpt shows up automatically. It is also important to know that the default WordPress Excerpt length is 55 characters. However, this is changeable.

A small disadvantage of having an excerpt, rather than the <!–more–> tag is that excerpts, by default, do not have any link contained within unlike the <!–more–> tags which display a link to the full article. Nonetheless, this post shall get you a desired “Read More” link in WordPress excerpt. Follow the steps below, which shall guide you on how to add the “Read More” link into your excerpts and also style them (or convert them into buttons!).

Adding The Read More Link Into The Excerpt

The following code snippet helps you to add the link after the end of the excerpt. It also gets rid of the unwanted[...] after the excerpt text. You’re Free To Change The Text In Bold To Whatever You Wish. By Default, it reads “Continue Reading →“.

function read_more_excerpt($more) {

global $post;

return '… <a title="'. get_the_title($ID) . '" href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) . '">' . 'Continue Reading →' . '</a>';

}

add_filter('excerpt_more', 'read_more_excerpt');

*The above code snippet is to be placed in the functions.php file of your current theme. It is usually found in your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Editor > functions.php. However, in some themes like the Thesis WordPress Theme, it is named as custom.php, and located inside the specific skin being used.

Styling The Read More Link In Excerpts

When the above code snippet is added, the ‘Continue Reading →’ doesn’t look as attractive as it should. However, there’s always a solution for every problem. The following code snippet will add the basic styles, and the later one will help you make the link a button.

.post_excerpt a {

display: block;

padding: 10px 0;

}

That snippet simply adds the link below the excerpt so that the readers can see it quickly. It also adds some spacing on the top and bottom of the link – making it more clear.

Make The Link A Button

As mentioned before, the following snippet will convert the link into a clickable button. The button is preferred by some who prefer a flat layout and love the usage of colors with flat elements. You’re always free to change the colors and other stuff in the code, if you’re sure you know it.

.post_excerpt a {

padding: 8px 12px;

background: #19a086;

color: #fff;

clear: both;

display: table;

margin: 12px 0px;

font-size: 14px;

border-radius: 5px;

}

.post_excerpt a:hover {

background: #168a74;

}

*Note – Only add one of the 2 styles mentioned above. If you just want the link to look clean, go for the first one. If you need the link to be a button (makes it a classy-green button with the above styles, but you’re free to change the color), then add the second snippet.

Also note that the above will be added either into your style.css file (at the very bottom) or into your custom.css (or similar file provided by the theme) if present.

Those snippet combinations shall help you get a “Read More” link in WordPress Excerpts for your blog(s).
