Are you tired of starting a blog today only to discover that you have no passion to keep up with that topic?

Thousand of bloggers have gone through the same process and are already giving up on this blogging stuff not because they don’t want to be a professional blogger but because most importantly they haven’t discovered their blogging passion yet.

easy as 1 2 3

We asked you why you started your blog and most of you responded because you have the passion and you want to help people.

So I am here to help you discover yours.

Passion is so vital in the blogosphere; you can’t become successful if you are not passionate about a topic.

It keeps you going even when you haven’t grown your blog likewise it empowers to keep on improving your content for your users.

How you can discover your blogging passion now?

Below are the three easy ways to discover your blogging passion so you can create a blog that you are truly passionate about now.

1.) Pick Up the Last Ten Books That Kept You Awake All Through the Night

The first way to determine your blogging passion is to pick up the last set of books you read.

Books you read of your own accord not just academic books that got your interest all through such that you don’t mind reading over again.

Your passion can be found in those books that you could spend your money and time voluntarily to read with undivided interest.

What intrigued you the most, the topics of the books, the authors of those books. All these questions if answered properly can lead you to discover your blogging passion.

Before I launched my blog I decided to take a good look at my library and I observed that they were all filled with financial, spiritual, motivational and business books which I bought with my cash and have read them voraciously.

The good thing about this way is that it also determines your level of expertise on a topic which would to a large extent determine the success of your blog.

What are you waiting for go through your libraries and discover what you have their.

2.) What Do Your Friends Know You For?

This is another quick way to discover your blogging passion. We all have friends that we talk to, share ideas with and obviously our future plans.

Take a moment and think, what is that my friends know me for?

While discussing with them what is that topic that you can stand up to anytime any day?

My friends know that I can talk about money well,  wherever the topic of money is spoken I am easily attracted to it, as a result of this with the first option above I decided to pick the topic of my blog because I got the passion.

Yours may be blogging, link building, technology, football, politics, lifestyle, relationships, photography, cooking whatever it may be your friends can help you easily discover it.

You can also check the nicknames your friends call you.

Don’t be too shy not to talk with your friends either at home, school, and work. Learn to be free with others because they can help you discover your passion.

3.) That One Thing Your Parents Complained About You

While we were kids there were some things that got our parents attention which can also lead us to develop our blogging passion.

It may not be some worth hearing but you can turn it into something productive such as being a noise maker to become a motivational speaker.

That thing your parents consistently complained about while you were growing which you sometimes defied the and still pursuing.

I am not referring to interests which your parents stopped you from and you gave in, passion is totally different from interest.

It is up to you to discover that quality or skill that your parents talked about which you never gave up if you want to discover your blogging passion.

The Shocking Truth about Being a Successful Blogger.

All I have done is to show you three ways to discover your blogging passion but you may be asking but I don’t buy and read books, I also don’t have friends nor have my parents complained anything that I am passionate about.

Wait a minute; if that is what you are saying to yourself then you can’t be a successful blogger.

Those that shock you?

That’s the honest truth, if you don’t read and study how then would you teach others, a teacher ought to be greater than his student.

Secondly if you don’t have friends whom you express your ideas with how then can you properly do it online? You would only falter.

All top bloggers are intelligent, bright and smart because they are constantly learning and they also develop relationships with other bloggers.

I am not discouraging you.

Here is the deal: if you want to be a top blogger you must learn, study and cultivate productive relationships among people.

Don’t be worried, you can start from today to learn, study and also develop relationship not just online but also offline through which you can develop your blogging passion.

Now go and check your libraries and discover what your friends know you for, they can help you discover your blogging passion.

I do hope I have shown you how to discover your secret weapon in the blogosphere: passion.

Everyone has different views about blogging and most of people who have never started a blog believe that making money blogging is simple and not hard at all.

They think that anyone can do it and they can do it at any time they want and perhaps that is what never allows them to start their blog. However, the reality is quite different.

It has never been easy to make money blogging and probably never will be in years and years to come. Hence, if you are one of those people who blindly believe it is easy to make money blogging, I’m going to tell you some real facts and the truth of making money blogging.

blogging truth

SEO Traffic Is Secret of Making Money Blogging

Many bloggers think that creating a blog, posting some content and monetizing it will make them handsome money. But they’re wrong. There is the best way to make money online. It’s called SEO.

We just can’t ignore SEO. SEO is backbone of any successful blog. Without SEO we can’t make passive income. Don’t forget search engine visitors = money.

So, spend some time on learning SEO. Remember it’s not a quick fix, it’ll take some time to boost your visitors.

AdSense is Not the Best Way to Make Money

I see bloggers quit very soon just because their blog do not get approved by Adsense.

The reason is Google AdSense is getting strict day by day. They are rarely approving any account. Even, if you manage to get adsense account by any trick. The chances are they’ll disable your account soon. That’s why I hate AdSense.

So, best way is to focus on more than one income source. Start affiliate marketing, sell your own product and make money using direct ad sales.

You Cannot Become Rich Overnight:

1016359_573719279388060_1201521126_n

Get Rich schemes have resulted in more scams online than anything else. Everyone wants to become rich as quickly as possible because getting better and wishing for better is in human nature.

Unfortunately, this nature puts us into some troubles. What you need to understand while stepping into blogging or even if you are in blogging for a while is that making tons of money from your blog is not going to be easy. It is not going to be fast and quick as well.

This would prove to be a long and hard road where you would have to come across road blocks after road blocks. You need to stay focused and determined at all times to cross the hurdles in your path and clear the way to the place where you can proudly call yourself a “Professional Blogger”.

Success is Never Guaranteed:

Unlike some business in offline world, no one can ever guarantee that you or your blog will be successful someday. Not even you. It is like a total gamble because you have to put your hard work and everything into your blog to make it work. And, you have no idea if it will make you any money any day.

You can even spend thousands of dollars into starting and promoting your blogs. You can also hire experts to do the whole work for you, but reality will never change. No one will ever guarantee that you will be successful. And, if someone does, that is a scam alert. That is how harsh the reality of blogging is.

You Have To Keep Learning at all times:

This is not something in which you can claim that you have learned everything. This is because there are millions of things to be learned in blogging and you get to learn something new every other day.

That means you have to work and learn non-stop. There will never ever be a stage where you can sit back just because there is nothing more to learn.

Learning process never ends in blogging and that is the beauty of this business. Newbie bloggers are learning new stuff and experts are learning new stuff as well.

There were some real facts to show you how hard it is to make money blogging. I hope that now you know the reality of a blogger and how hard bloggers have to work. So, what about now? Do you still believe the old way? Or I was able to change your mind a little bit? I am really excited to know what you think about these points.

make money online[This is second part of ideas to sell your own product and make money.]

In blogging there are more than several ways to make money online. Its only requirement is to know the art of money making. It is wise to pick a few options from lengthy list and stick to it with a clear monetization strategy.

A little patience is must to get the result. From the day one it is not possible to make money online even with any best monetization option. You simply need to pick a few money making methods that confirm give you good results.

But the question is; how can you sell a product in large number that is already being sold by pro bloggers?

You can’t compete with John Chow or Zac Johnson in generating same amount of sales revenue.

Secondly why do your blog visitors buy your referred product and why they should skip the advice of other blogging pros?

There is no reason of preferring the advice of a newbie over the internet marketing icons’.

So your product must have least selling competition.

It means you need to sell a product that has zero selling competition.

Confused?

There is a product where you are the only seller and rests are your sales agent.

Yes you are right it is your own online product.

In my previous post “5 ideas to make online product and earn money easily” we discussed the basics of developing your own online product. It focused the primary aspects of your products; how it should be packaged and how should be its branding etc.

In this post I give you 5 proven strategies to make money online with your blog

Evergreen products make money online consistently

It depends upon niche of your blog and the nature of your audience what type of product you develop. An online product may be:

  • A tutorial
  • A guide
  • A video course
  • A solutions-based ebook
  • Blog templates
  • Blog widgets
  • Coaching for online money making
  • Offer to join a group and earn money easily
  • A tangible product like tea shirt or insignia

Whatever type of product you want to make it must be free from the need of frequent updates. After a quite a long time you can update it to keep it in the list of best products. But it should not need frequent updates or improvement.

So your product must be an evergreen product. You should focus to sell it more and more and don’t worry about its quality control once you make it. In this way you can earn money easily without spending time on its further development.

If you improve your product you need to send the updated version to all who already bought its old version. This exercise may annoy your old customer who might have already applied the trick and tips given in your product.

All in one package to make money online

A famous blogger recently released a complete guide to start a blog. He awesomely made the guide concise. But in his attempt to keep it concise he had to put several links for detail review of the subject. In this situation readers have to shuttle between base product and referral products if it happens. It is not good from benefits point of view.

Your product must be a complete package providing every necessary detail that your readers need. They need not move to other authority sites for further review of the topic to earn money easily.

Supplementary product to make money online

This is a good strategy to make money easily. Make a perfectly complete product but keep space for its advance level to sell another product to your customers who are fully convinced of the quality of your primary product.

But your base product must not be simply a promotional brochure of your advance product. You need to fulfill your customers’ product need completely and perfectly. If they need to grow more you can offer another advance product of same nature.

Minimum theoretical

Good writers start their tutorial with an advice to their readers to pick a pen or pencil and do the practical work after completing each chapter.

how to make money online

So your product should not require simply an act of reading or listening to remember it and then apply whatever is learnt to earn money easily. It must have practical aspect more with minimum theory. After every main point you must ask your readers to do an exercise before moving forward.

Free updates subsequently

Selling good product to your customers means developing long term relationship with them.

For this you need not to stay silent after selling one product. You should send them free updates related to your product as and when need arises.

In this way you will strengthen your relationship with buyers of your product. It means you have wide space to sell your next product to make money easily to your regular customers whom you are in contact. Even you can also ask them to refer your product to their friends if you manage to have good relations with them.

So these are five proven strategies to make money online with your blog. I am sure now you can start making your first online product and be less reliant on affiliate products. Do you still need more advice on this topic just drop a comment to let me reply you?

Well, you may be familiar with what is a backlink?

If not, here is a brief description. When we talk about page rank actually we are indirectly pointing to number  of backlinks. Backlink is an incoming hyperlink from one web-page to another website.Backlinks play a very essential role in page rankings.

“Links are still the best way that we’ve found to discover [how relevant or important somebody is], and maybe over time social or authorship or other types of markup will give us a lot more information about that.” – Matt Cutts

Build High Quality Backlinks

When I started Blogging I usually ignored the purpose of blog commenting, guest posting but time by time I realized its benefits. 10- 20 quality backlinks are far better that 100′s of crap.

I hope you are understanding. Gaining quality backilnks in a day or two is an impossible task. You have to work hard on it. Treat blogging as marathon not a race. Hence, taking my personal experience into consideration I’ve compiled some useful tips for you to Build High Quality Backlinks.

Forum participation

Active participation in forums have a great impact on SERP’S as it helps in building high quality backlinks. It has many other benefits too like relationship building, creating interactions with other bloggers working on similar to your niche. I am active participator of indiblogger helping people in their problems and submitting my content to it for high response.Hence, I got maximum links from indiblogger.

Active participation in the forums is a must for a blog to grow and Build High Quality Backlinks.

Creating long tutorial posts 

Creating a post in more that 1200 words builds a great probability of quality backlinks. Going in the depth of the content and making use of pictures, flowcharts, infographics etc. makes your readers to share or insert your link to their websites. Writing “how to” guides creates an ultimate effect.

Like writing “how to install wordpress” , “how to lose weight” blah Thus, it’s a great procedure for building good quality links.

Special post for special days

Plan your writing tasks for special days like writing a special post for valentine’s day. Offer them discounts on your services. This creates a great opportunity for people to visit your site and comment. Thus, you can gain backlinks easily without much effort. Do market research and try to find out the topics which are in great demand. Write about them and obviously you would be the winner.

Build High Quality Backlinks

Request to your readers to add your link in exchange of some offers. Offer them free products in exchange to embed your link tag in their blog or run a contest by offering an ultimate prize in exchange of linking so they are compelled  to participate.

Start writing e-books

Write an ebook. Insert your links within the content of your e-book. Ask your friends to share it on the web through social media.

Submit your links to best of the best social bookmarking sites like stumpleupon, digg, delicious and reddit.

“The philosophy that we’ve always had is if you make something that’s compelling then it would be much easier to get people to write about it and to link to it. [...] Make a fantastic website that people love and tell their friends about and link to and want to experience. As a result, your website starts to become stronger and stronger in the rankings.” – Matt Cutts

Write attractive headlines

It’s an essential art of writing. You must give attractive headings to your content that compel readers to open your article. Like “best dongles, $500 giveaway contest, top social media strategies. Etc..

Start offering free products

Free offers have a great impact on visitors. It helps in increasing traffic and eventually more backlinks. Either it can be e-book or free blog installation service.

Build High Quality Backlinks

Start collecting paid products and offer them for free to your visitors. I know it’s not easy but you can get it if you are having high technical knowledge.

Create rocking videos

Create your own videos and submit it to YouTube. Nowadays, most of the bloggers are using this technique to increase their backlinks. P.s Don’t forget to add your link to it. Use “screenr” to record your own videos for free. Give tutorials on “how to guides” like how to blog migration, how to install wordpress etc. And I’m sure you will be successful for sure.

Guest blogging

Guest blogging is one of the simplest and effective way to increase backlinks thus traffic.Do a research and find out the reputed blogger of your niche. ;)

Create an ultimate post that goes viral. Give more relevance to guest post than your own blog post. This is most effective way to Build High Quality Backlinks.

But you have to follow the given tips for successful guest blogging -

  •  It’s very essential to do a research for before posting on other website. Start interacting with its owner and commenting on his posts. Find out whether it is a reputed blog or not. See whether it is gaining high response or not.Before guest posting start interacting with its readers from a week before.
  • Make sure you are having a gravatar for your email i’d.
  • Have a look at the published posts because you need to write a unique content which is not yet published on his blog.
  • Check out previous guest posts on his blog. See whether it is gaining high response or not.You need to also look at its targeted audience whether it is targeting newbies or professionals.
  • Try to make the content relevant as much as you can because they are allowing you to post so that it adds value to their blog and  increases their reputation.
  • Make it a habit. It’s not that posting once you can gain huge popularity. It needs time. You need to keep patience and keep posting on highly reputed blogs.

    My friend and I started blogging at the same time on the similar niche but at present he his having more backlinks than me. Why?

Because he is a regular guest blogger and is very active on forums. And seriously, For this I’m very jealous of him.

Blog Commenting

Ahaann.. The most easiest one to build high quality backlinks. Just leaving the most appropriate comment on others blogs drives traffic as well as backlinks. Here are some tips which you must follow-

  • Never just comment “good article” and “thanks  “. Share your views and give your suggestions. Never mind giving a negative comment if you are sure that it is relevant.

  • Deliver high quality comments to receive high quality backlinks. So Simple. ;)

  • Make sure to reply every commenter of your post. This generates a sympathetic feeling in the reader and he loves to visit again.

  • Make sure you have a gravatar.

  • Don’t comment by registering with different id’s every time.

Interviews

I know you might be thinking how the professional bloggers would give us time to take interview. It may a tough task but not impossible. Be an active reader of their blog.

Build High Quality Backlinks

Keep in touch with them by actively commenting and sharing their posts.Keep re-tweeting their tweets. Give best of the best comments as much as you can. Share their products to all around web by social media. Through this the owner will contact you soon and you can easily ask for an interview.

Read  Guidelines You Must Follow Before Interviewing a Blogger

Deliver Relevant content

Make sure you are providing great content to your readers that they are actually seeking for and love to share it.Add videos, infographics, relevant pictures. And… keep patience. Relevant content links over time.

Wrapping up….

Building quality backlinks is not a one day task. It needs some time. Just keep patience and keep implementing the above given tips and I’m sure you would be successful.

What methods are you using to build backlinks?

WordPress is the world’s largest blogging platform and the most popular one too. And. The basic reason for that is the ease that it provides in every way to bloggers. As we know, it is an open source platform which means people can edit it whatever the way they want. There are plugins for almost everything to be done with perfection and ease. However, things can still be complicated many times.

Making money from blogging is not a walk in the park and to be honest it is a Hercules task that takes so much out of you that if you fail, your heart breaks. It is much easier to make more money with multiple blogs as compared to just one and that is the reason why a lot of people create multiple blogs.

And, again it’s hard task to manage multiple WordPress weblogs. And, even though WordPress offers functionality in which you can manage multiple sites from same dashboard, most people don’t seem to be happy about it and I am just one of those people.

I started to search because I wanted better than that and I found what I needed. I came to realize that there are more than one site that allow you to do the same job with multiple features and I gave a try to few of them. And, one of them was CMS Commander. I was disappointed by others, but this one hooked me. And, I was impressed and that is the reason why I am sharing this post with you guys because I know that many of you are tired of managing multiple blogs.

The site was launched in 2012 and within just one year and a little more it has already crossed the number 20,000. Yes, that is the combined number of websites that are being managed using this awesome service.

But I am not just telling you that this place is a good, but I’ll show you exactly why is it that way.

What Is CMS Commander?

You see, time is the most precious thing that human beings have. If anyone learns to utilize time, he achieves greatness and those who fail to utilize it fall into deep dark holes of pain and sufferings. Blogging is all about doing the right things at the right time, taking the right steps and capitalizing on the opportunities that you are being offered.

CMS Commander is a service that helps people manage multiple blogs from the same dashboard. They don’t have to spend time in logging in and logging out of blogs and websites and instead they can use that time in promoting their stuff or doing other things that are beneficial.

Sign up now for FREE

Why I Love CMS Commander?

a)      You can sign up for free and use all of their premium features for up to one month and manage as many sites as you want. If you want to continue enjoying those services, you pay. Otherwise, your account is converted into free and you still use their service, but with limited options. Something is better than nothing. ;)

b)      It allows you to write using the power writing tools and with everything that is required for creating killer content.

c)      If you want to post the same post on 10 websites/blogs or even more, you can do that with simple steps.

This means that you don’t have to go to every single site and do all the things like selecting categories and adding SEO titles and description and setting H tags and all that stuff. You have to do it only once and the post would be published on all blogs or the ones you wish.

d)     You can install plugins or themes on all of your blogs with simple steps without having to go to each of them.

e)      Another amazing thing that it comes with is the ability of article spinning and re-writing. Hence, you would save a lot and money by signing up for this services that you would otherwise put in buying software for doing these two jobs.

f)       You have the full control of monetization and it can boost your earnings too if you are an affiliate marketer.

g)      For those of you who like to create many websites with same design, everything changes now. This is because with CMS Commander, you can copy one site’s whole design within just 1 minute.

All these things and much more. You can sign up for their trial account and test their services for one month and then decide what you really want to do in future.

Final Words:

It has not been long time since I’m using their services and I’m loving every single bit of it. I strongly suggest you to give them a try.

No, I am not their affiliate or anything like that and I will get nothing for this post. I am doing it just for showing you a great thing that I just found. Hopefully you’ll love it.

Stop! Stop everything you’re doing and give this post your full attention. Spending the time reading this post could be the best decision you’ll make this week.

What if I told you that I’ll share  with you the secret to monetizing your blog?

Monetizing your blog or site has for the majority of site owners hasn’t been that successful with them only making a few dollars each month from carrying ads on their site.

The secret to monetizing your site  is simple: Stop selling Advertisements.

Confused?

Don’t worry, you’ve every right to be.

What I’m stating is hard to digest, right?

But it’s the harsh truth.

Short Story short:- You’re could be screwing up big time, if you display any sorts of advertisements on your blog.

Hold on, let me get my point clear. Let me justify my statement before you jump to any dangerous conclusions.

The whole system is trashed. Displaying ads was something that used to work flawlessly in the 90′s.  Yes, you might see some blogs out there making money from advertisements but have you ever looked at their traffic statistics?

Isn’t it hilarious and quite funny to notice that only blogs with loads and loads of traffic make any money (that actually counts) using advertisements?

Enough of the sermon, I’ll justify my statement.

Here are the drawbacks from having advertising on your site.

Make-Money-Online-From-Home

1. Ads don’t add anything to the design and look of your site.

Ads don’t tend to be visually appealing and if over used can make a site look cheap.

2. You’re playing with your reputation

Oh! Beautiful banner! I think, I should add another one there. And one there too. One under every post won’t hurt. Oh! And one beside the header will increase clicks. You have the exact same thoughts while placing ads, right?

Over using Ads is one of the most common mistakes.

You are putting your reputation on the line by displaying ads. The mere fact that you show ads on your blog will turn some of your readers of.

It’ll show them how desperate you are to make money. They will feel less unimportant.

3. Affects blog loading speed

Let me get my facts straight, Banners of any sorts aren’t cool!

I won’t wait ages for a blog to load only to find out that it is full of advertisements.

I won’t even bother to look at your content.

Fact is fact that adding banners or advertisements affect the page loading speed of your blog.

4. You loose traffic!

This is another thing that cannot be ignored under any circumstance.  There is only a 50/50 probability that a person who has clicked on a advertisement of your blog will ever return back here.

Clicking on an ad will take them to another page diverting their attention.  Some people pay close attention and come back to your blog where as some carelessly close your window.

1$ or not, is it worth it? Worth loosing your reader. Some one who could become your potential customer?

5. Divert Attention

I agree. You’ve put in some considerable amount of effort and made sure that your advertisement opens into a new window. But it still will break your readers concentration, won’t it?

No matter how you argue, the truth is that Advertisements aren’t your blog audience’s best friends.

Your readers will concentrate more on the motion advertisements rather than your precious content that you wrote with all your spirit and dedication. Will you let that happen?

Why the difference?

I could go on and on about why you shouldn’t display advertisements on your blog. But I value your time.

I follow a principal fundamental called K.I.S.S – Keep it Simple, silly!

So, I’m gonna keep it simple.

I’ve been talking about why you shouldn’t display advertisements but I haven’t given you an alternative, right?

Don’t worry, I was saving the best part for the last.

And the alternative is……

Make a product. Sell it!

Shocked?

Well, the truth needs to be accepted.

Selling a product of your own makes sense. Doesn’t matter how minor it might turn out to be, ranging from an e-book to a large scaled webinar, from a small plugin to a whole new software.

Anything will do, as long as it fits your audience.

The best example is Brain Clark from Copyblogger. I’ve never seen a single advertisement or a banner on Copyblogger. Inspite of that, Brian earns 20 times if not 100 of what you, me or any ad-displaying blogger earns.The most important thing for any blogger or site owner is to understand your audience. (Treat it like a business)

You need to put in that extra effort and understand your audience. Because you can’t sell to somebody, you don’t even know. A bunch of bloggers sell stuff to people without understanding their audience. You can’t shove products down your readers throat if they’re not interested, right?

Get it yet?

The best way to know your audience perfectly is to work on one particular niche and become an authority. I won’t be talking about becoming an authority. (That’ll be another post)

Again, remember that narrowing your niche down will help a lot.

You’ll make a lot more money.

Selling a product will make you a lot more money. Why?

Because if you’re product is worth the money, people will come back and buy your future products.

And the best part?

You’re deliverying them value which increases the chances that they will recommend you to others

And it’s much more easier:

The best thing nowadays is that it’s easy to sell a product to your audience. With services like Selz, you can sell ebooks or digital downloads securely from any website in minutes with no programming.

What’d you think?

Now that you’ve read the post and filled information into that cute, witty head of yours, go work! Analyze what you’re doing wrong and right it before it’s too late.

Do it now and thank me later. You won’t regret it. If you display advertisements on your blog then re-think your blog strategy again.

What do you think? What are your views? Did you have any similar experiences? Wanna share them with me?

GO ahead, comment below. I promise that I will reply to each and every one of your comments.

Any questions? No worries, drop them in the comments section below. I’ll be more than willing to answer your questions.

Through further algorithm updates, Google, Bing and other major search engines are changing the ranking factors and SEO in 2014. In the previous years SEO was really easy to do as it is easy to say.

Unbeatable link building, spamming were the easiest ways to get ranking in no time. As soon as the search engines acknowledge the strategy, they started to fight against them. Let’s look through the history of Google’s algorithm updates.

In December 2000, they rolled out their very first update. I think that was not their successful year. They kept up the changes to fight the spam, but they weren’t able to achieve glowing success till 2010. But from 2011 to now, it is proved that their strategies have become victorious. Google has totally trended their ranking factors.

To December 2013, the Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird updates made sensational changes all around. Some people considered these as the death of SEO. But this is exactly not. Because the new SEO is based on reputation, content, quality and naturality. Google has deeply focused on reputation of sites in brand new factors of seo in 2014. They started to analyze social signals from some years ago, but this one is going to be the most effective element in 2014.

seo in 2014

Is It Confirmed That Social Signal is One Of The Ranking Factors?

In December 2010, Google and Bing had started the social graph search feature to analyze the reputation of links. It was first announced by Danny Sullivan on a post from Search Engine Land:

Both Google and Bing have added many social search features over the past year. There’s also been talk about using “social signals” to help rank regular search results.

That was a great news for all but still many people were waiting for an official declaration of Google or Bing. Finally, Matt Cutts confirmed the major quote that Google and Bing has started to use social signals as a ranking factor. He answered a question by WebSEOAnalytics on this topic:

WebSEOAnalytics – Hello Matt, a recent article of Danny Sullivan suggests that Google uses Twitter and Facebook links as a ranking signal. Can you confirm this? Can you elaborate a little bit more on this?

Matt Cutts – I filmed a video back in May 2010 where I said that we didn’t use that as a signal, and at the time, we did not use that as a signal, but now, we’re taping this in December 2010, and we are using that as a signal.

Here is the official declaration by Matt Cutts confirming that they have started to use social signals as a ranking factor:

So, it is confirmed and we can follow Danny Sullivan’s suggestion without any doubt. It is time to make engagement in social media for growing social reputation.

Recently, Matt Cutt announced that guest blogging is dead for SEO purpose. After that, everyone started writing blog post on  this topic.

Within 2 days, these authority blogs got ranking on page #1. Because of social signal and linking to each other. See proof below.

SEO in 2014

How Social Signals Affect Search Engine Ranking?

The major search engines have started to count on social engagement to compare the reputation of links. Now SEO is so scaled that quality and reputation all round achieve the success. Social media are the place where people interact with each others. So, within this place, it is possible to get the recommendations and engagements of social people.

Through Hummingbird update, it was revealed that social signals from engagement will have more impact on Google ranking. And sites with very low social signals got negative effects too. Here are the top reasons why major search engines are relying on social signals:

  • Higher Number of Social Links Improve The Online Presence: In first of all, links from social sites build brand awareness and increase the visibility of websites. Through this strategy, it is possible to be found very quickly. For SEO in 2014, Google is focusing on brand awareness not only on links and keywords. Links shared by many people instantly got increased visibility from the social activists. So there are more chances to get higher ranking on search engines.
  • It Reveals The People Recommendations: Social sites are the best resource to learn about the people’s recommendations. Google and Bing really depend on what people will be delightful. They try to serve what the people are exactly looking for. As all the peoples choice couldn’t go wrong, they rely on the recommended things. Social media provide the opportunities to vote for the recommendations through sharing, commenting, liking and so on. So, the search engines take the advantage to combine the social signals into their ranking signals.
  • Though Social Link is NoFollow, Its Value is Almost Like DoFollow: Mainly social sites provide nofollow attributes for outbound links but the search engines valued these as dofollow. Some people could argue about the nofollow link value. But all the search engines look social links from different aspects. Even, Google’s webspam head Matt Cutts said through its own words that links from social shares are safe and valuable to the search engines.
  • Social Media Do the Hardest Work ‘Branding’: Now in the new era of SEO, it mainly relies on brand authority. Branding is the way of making brand authority in the online presence. So, it is one of the hardest works, but social sites have made it really easy. Without these open platforms, it would be really difficult to create brand awareness. So, we are thankful to them.

What Are The Ways to Build More Social Signals Through Engagement?

The only way to get more social signal and improve your SEO in 2014 is brand promotion. So, here are the main criteria for building natural presence from social media platforms:

  • Create Own Brand Page: Most of the social media provide opportunities to create own brand and promote as per own’s need. It is the way to establish your brand through the brand page. Through that page, it will be easy to share updates, news and views easily. So, the users could regularly follow up the brand and join in the necessary events. It will help one a lot for creating brand awareness.
  • Connect With The Influencers: Second step is connecting with the social people. To make it happen, one has to regularly share his brand updates. So, the social activists could enjoy the updates. Trying to get more likes, shares, followers are the greatest ways of social engagement. The social activities from public pages are more preferable so the search engines could get a proper popularity report.
  • Make Your Website Contents Easy to Share Socially: Whenever a visitor comes to your website and individually like a content or resource, he would probably like to share it with all of his friends. And that will be only possible if you make the share easy. So, include share buttons on your websites so that the visitors could click once and share.

Which Platforms Should Be Used For Better Social Signals?

There are excessive numbers of social platforms for users, but one may ask what are preferable? Well the exact answer will be the sites leading with page rank and authority. As it is also used as a source of instant targeted traffic, we should try out the sites with more social engagement of people.

So, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn and so on sites like these should be used as I do. These sites have the highest number of social activities. So, these would be your choice if you really want the branding part to get more social signals for ranking. Using these sites actively would help you in SEO in 2014.

The Biggest Advantages of Being Connected With Google+ For Ranking:

Some years ago the most avoided platform was Google+. No one measured this seriously as a result, many of the SEO experts considered this as worthless. Google+ is going to change SEO in 2014. So make sure to use it from now.

But now the thoughts are completed changed. In fact, in my judgment it has the highest value rather than any social platform. Here are the top reasons why everyone should get seriously into Google+:

  • Google+ Posts Are Indexed Very Quickly By Crawlers: Google+ has turned the option to show search results from Google+. So, whenever a post is published in Google+, it will be shown in the search results as soon as possible. Then the links will be also rewarded by passing link equity. In a Moz post by Cyrus Shepard, he explained that Google plus posts pass link equity. So, that will be helpful for all.
  • Google+ Shows Verified Authorship Markup in Search Results: Google+ shows authorship markup in search results to ensure an author is trusted or not. There are lots more advantages of Google+ authorship markup and this it helps in ranking.

Final Thoughts about Social Media and SEO in 2014:

I trust on it with my heart and soul because of the latest Hummingbird update and some exact words from Matt Cutts. SEO in 2014 is gonna be change. In some other blogs, it was said to prevent any sorts of algorithm changes, we should get social.

Previously, social bookmarking, forum posting and other simple strategies were enough for ranking but now these are not. So, in my SEO strategy I have included the social engagement part.

However, I am sure that it is one of the best strategies that is going to work for SEO in 2014.
