5 Useful Tools To Make Your Blog Management Easier


If you think managing a blog is easy, then you’ve never managed a blog.

Back in the days when I only wrote content, I thought the management side was easy.

You just make sure things run smoothly, and that’s about it. It wasn’t until I started managing a blog that I realized exactly what “make sure things run smoothly” entails. Make no mistake: there’s a lot of hard work.

I have thankfully found a handful of tools that have made managing my blog much easier. Without these apps I’d be lost in a sea of blog posts, WordPress upgrades, plugin updates, and broken links.

And that doesn’t even go into issues like SEO, site design, and marketing. Trust me when I say that blog management takes a lot more time and effort than content creation.

5 Reasons Why You Fail To Build Your Blog Readership

Blogging needs efforts to grow and build its value for both readers as well search engines.

Just receiving traffic is not the goal of any blogger. The thing which we need is a powerful readership around our blog.

We need readers to read our content not just visitors who come and go back to another place for the information they are looking for.

One more thing we all know that readership is based on traffic. If you are receiving decent traffic then there are major chances to build readership. But readership is not totally dependent on traffic.

It depends on many factors which I’ll discuss today in this post and the reasons why bloggers fail to build strong and powerful blog readership.


1. Writing Content for Search Engines

Most of newbie bloggers, when they start their blog, start posting anything they like to post without any proper knowledge of how to right best content.

Your content should not target the search engines. Try to right something under your niche that your readers like to read. If they like your content then they bring new traffic to your blog and also convert from visitors to readers.

2. Not Active on Social Media Sites

Social Media sites have proved themselves that they have the audience which you want for your business.

There are millions of regular visitors on major social media sites like facebook, twitter and now on Google Plus too. If you are not active on these great sources of traffic sites then you are really missing targeted audience as well valuable readers.

3. Poor Relationships with Existing Readers

I have examined many blogs where nobody is there to solve reader’s queries and doubts.

Blog owners just post content and sit relax.

They never take interest to communicate with their readers by replying to their comments. If you are also doing same then start communicating today with your readers because readers at early stage of blog are very important.

You should not ignore them if you are serious for your blogging goals.

4. Not Participating in Blogger’s Communities

Blogger’s communities and forums are one of the best sources of receiving targeted audiences.

There are numberless readers who are communicating from each other to share their views and ideas on particular topic. If you are not participating in those communities then really you are not fairing with your blog.

Generating quality content for your blog is not enough if you are not able to reach it to the correct audience. There are lot of big blogs with a strong readership and you have to target those readers. Start participating today in below best blog communities and forums to gain more exposure for your blog.

5. Poor Consistency

One of the main reasons to fail to maintain blog readership is the consistency by which you are updating your blog.

You may be heard that we should post regularly to increase blog traffic but if you are not consistent with your blogging timings then you can never taste the real readership.

Your readers should be aware with your posting timings so that they can land on your blog at that time to read what you have written new in your blog. It will not only increase your blog readers but also you will gain trust of readers and search engines also by showing that you are really serious about your blog.

Final Words!

These were the 5 major reasons you may be failed to build a true readership for your blog.

If you feel that you are not working on any of the above strategies then start working today on it.

Are You Ignoring One Rule for Making Money Blogging?

Let’s cut to the chase: We all want making money blogging from our blogs.

Of course! ;)

During consulting sessions with bloggers it’s one of the first items we discuss. Everyone has seen the success stories, and we’d all love to be the next blogging superstar and making money blogging. But how?

When my clients ask how they can make money, I pause the conversation there and change directions. The conversation goes something like this.

Me: “So you’d like to earn money blogging?”

Client: “Yes, but I don’t know how.”

Me: “If you want to earn money for your efforts, you have to provide people with something, right?”

Client: “Yeah, sure.”

Me: “So I ask you, what do you provide to your readers that is so valuable?”

The conversation usually stops dead here. :D

I suggest that the client takes a day or two to ponder that question. Sometimes they come back with a solid idea, and we can build from there. Other times, though, they come back stumped. They’ll ask, “What do readers find valuable?” There’s a good answer to that, and it constitutes my one rule for making money from a blog.

You have to teach them something.

If you’re just re-blogging the news, or blogging your opinion on current events, you’re not teaching the reader much of anything. There’s an old saying about how everyone has opinions and how they all stink. That applies to bloggers, though you wouldn’t know it by the number of opinion-based blogs out there.

To stand out in the blogging world today, you have to be remarkable. That’s sad for opinion bloggers, because opinions are not remarkable. If you want an opinion on any subject, from the latest political news to the hot new gadget release, you can find it on any number of websites. Dozens of writers race to post updates to blogs, hoping that if they post first that readers will find them. But it’s just a shell game. There is no winner when blogging opinions.

If you ignore that rat race and focus on how you can become valuable to readers, then you might be onto something. And you might find not just one way, but many ways to make money from your blog. When you teach people something new, all sorts of opportunities start appearing.

Of course, after I tell clients about teaching through blogging, they always have a follow-up question: How can I teach people with my blog?. Here is my three-part answer.

How Can I teach people with blog & make money?

OK, So How can I teach people with my blog and start making money blogging? Here is my three-part answer.

1. Start with something you know

With the internet as your guide, you can learn about almost anything. Even if you’ve never known a thing about home improvement projects, you can learn plenty from instructional texts and videos on the web. But if you want to teach readers how to do something, chances are you’ll need a bit more knowledge. They’re looking for something deep and real, and your understanding based on other home improvement blogs won’t cut it.

Start by blogging about one of your passions. If you know a lot about using the internet to save money when shopping, then start a blog about that. You might not know everything there is to know, but you sure know something. You can start blogging with that knowledge. Of course, that won’t always be enough. You have to be always learning, which brings me to Part 2.

2. Dig deep, then deeper

Picking a familiar topic will help at first, but eventually you’ll have to learn even more about your subject. Why? Because if you don’t you’ll run out of material. Using the above example, if you don’t learn more about saving money online, you’ll never be able to keep up and teach your readers something new. You’ll eventually have taught them everything you know, and from there what can you do?

This goes especially for high-tech subjects. I have a buddy who installs video surveillance equipment for businesses and residences. Take a look at that link and look at all the stuff listed just on the very first page. If he didn’t keep up with those products, he’d never be able to keep up. The same goes for you and your blog. Learn it all, and then learn more.

3. Connect with readers

This goes for any blog, but it bears repeating in this instance. So many bloggers I know neglect to respond to their comments and emails*. If you’re

connect with readers

ignoring those, then how are you getting a feel for what your readers like and don’t like? It’s through these reader connections that we can help our blogs go. Unsurprisingly, this holds true even more so for blogs that teach.

* I submitted a guest post a few months ago and forgot to reply to the comments. Ammar was not happy, and I don’t blame him. Every blogger needs to respond to comments, or else why blog in the first place?

When you connect with readers you can find out your weak points. Maybe you explain certain points in an unclear way. Maybe you use too many words to describe something that needs only a few words. Whatever the reasons, your readers are able and willing to point them out. If you learn from them, as they learn from you, you’ll see enormous growth.

Why teaching works?

So many blog posts I read start with theories but never explain them. We’re just supposed to believe that this works, because the author said so. So before wrapping up, I’d just like to outline how you can make more money with a teaching blog than almost any other type of blog.

  1. Advertisers like teaching blogs. When you teach people things, they often need to buy resources that they don’t already own. That’s a perfect opportunity for an advertiser to step in. Display ads from ad networks typically don’t pay much, but on blogs with a teaching angle you can earn a higher CPM.
  2. Articles that teach people something spread on social media. If I read an article and learn something from it, you can bet I’ll share it to Twitter and Facebook. If I learned something, then maybe others in my social graph will learn something. And if they learn something, they might pass it on to their social graph. If you want to create content that spreads, try teaching people something. It’s the best form of blogging.
  3. Affiliate sales rule. Teaching blogs are tailor-made for affiliate marketing opportunities. You’ll have to be up-front about it, but it can be a big money-maker on a teaching blog. If you link people to the tools and resources they need, they’ll be more apt to buy from you. That means an opportunity to make even more money blogging.

Starting a blog that teaches, like a DIY blog, is never easy. But if you put in the time and effort you’ll find it more rewarding than any other kind of blog. You’ll be helping people do things, and you’ll be rewarded with a modest income. If you play your cards right, maybe even a high income. :)

Tactics Needed To Increase the Traffic to a Blog

For professional SEO firms, it is very easy to build a blog but it gets very difficult to maintain the correct amount of visitors. The art of tracking the right audience is rare and without it, blogs lack value. There are a few tactics which can help many people with their blogs. These tactics are divided into the following points.

Increasing Traffic Graph

1)  When you are writing content for your blog, you must know the sort of audience you are targeting. When you are writing your blog you must always see if the audience has the ability to spread the word and share the information on your blog. There are certain types of writing styles, content, etc. Which attract a particular community or a certain group of people. For example, any review on the latest Gothic music might attract people who are interested in listening to dark music while videos related to dance might attract all the dancers out there. Targeting a group that would be interested in sharing your blog might help you make your blog become popular. While targeting people who are less likely to share might decrease the chances of your blog being famous across the web.

There are essentially three groups which you need to consider when you are targeting an audience for your blog:

i) Potential Consumers of the Blog
ii) Content Sharers
iii) Content Distributors

2)  You can also share information regarding your blog on web communities where most of your target audience is present. For example, if a company wants to target an audience for sports good, you won’t obviously target a group of video game lovers. Rather you will target a group that is actively involved in some kind of sports. Now you do not have to spend a lot of time searching where your target audience is more likely to be found.

Audience that shares brings in more traffic

You can use the Madison Avenue or the Double Clicks Ad Planner to see where what sort of audience is found. Once you find out the correct target audience you can start communicating with them and start posting things. But you must always post things if you think that they are appropriate instead of creating a hotchpotch. If you do that you will get the reputation of an undeserving, infamous blogger. You must always try to respect the rules of web traffic and be a good web citizen.

3) You must always make the content of your blog SEO friendly as this would help you in finding the correct amount of traffic. Search engines are very easy in tracking the correct traffic and it can be made even better using SEO friendly platforms like Blogger, WordPress, etc.

4) You must use social communities like Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc. To spread the word about your blog. This would help you in getting the required traffic as well.

5) Another thing which is recommended by most successful bloggers is that they install Google Analytics which is free and very helpful. It helps in telling you where the target audience is.

6) You must allow guest posts on your blog as this would also attract visitors and help you increase the publicity of your blog.

7) You must be consistent in your blog posts. You must post the content of your blog regularly as any delay would result in your blog losing a large amount of target audience.

Incorporating the above tips will substantially increase the traffic to your blog. For more information, you can also contact professionals like the Simple SEO Group.
