Create Valuable Posts

Different bloggers have different success with long or short posts. However, the key to being successful with blogging is by delivering valuable content to your readers.

BuzzSumo allows bloggers to search for content that has performed well across social media and that has also generated links.

  2. I have the SEO Yoast plug-in installed in my WordPress, but honestly I’ve just recently started using it and understanding what SEO is all about it, and how to make sure my blog posts are including SEO elements. It takes some work, but the more I read on the topic, the clearer I get.
    In your opinion, do you think it’s beneficial to upgrade to the premium Yoast plug-in?

    1. Hi Abhishek,

      Web hosting does affect your website speed directly. I’ve experienced this. Godaddy has this problem all the time. Many customers are complaining about it.

      I recommend you to change your web host. If you need my suggestion I suggest, go with InMotion. This is the web host I’m currently using. If you need me help with your blog migration. Feel free to get in touch through the contact form. :)

  11. Hi Anmar,

    While I do go with the long form content packed with useful data, stats, quotes, case studies and other users benefits elements, I still believes that what necessary and most important is offer your audience with the right contents.

    The right content is what your readers wants to read and not what you impose on them because the search engine dictate so.

    Thanks Felix for sharing, is such a nice read.

  12. Hi Anmar,

    Its very good idea to get alert from google about trending topic its not only help us write trending topic but also helps saving time doing research for topic.
