Understanding Blogging

If you love to write and share your experiences with other  people, you may be one of those who has  started their own blog. Blogging can be an exciting hobby for those that love to write. If you’re hosting your blog on a free site such as Blogspot or Tumblr, and are noticing that you get a significant amount of traffic on a regular basis, you may be considering switching over to your own paid URL. Using a blog platform such as Wordpress or Joomla can be an experience that allows you to customize your blog to your liking, as well as add display and text ads to your site to make a few dollars off of it. Here are a few tips if you’re about to launch or own blog URL.

Use Categories

If you tend to rant a little bit, or simply talk about several things, using categories is a great way to keep you page organized and user friendly. Additionally, category pages are more likely to get indexed into Google search engines. Keep your categories high level, but create new ones whenever you have something that is completely irrelevant to you other blog posts. Blogging isn’t just about writing, it’s about allowing people to find what you write.

Use a Plugin to Import Your Old Posts

Don’t let your old posts go to waste when you begin your new blogging site. There are several plugins, or extensions, that allow you to grab your posts from your former host and put them onto your new page. Once you’ve done so, make sure to remove your old account, or your new blog posts will be considered duplicate content, which could hurt your organic rankings.

Use Internal Linking

There are several plugins that will allow you to create links to other posts on every page. Whether you use the Most Popular feature, the Related Posts feature, or a Newest Posts feature, internal linking is a strategy that is favored by the Google algorithm. Additionally, internal linking can help keep visitors browsing your site longer, which can help drive increased revenue.

Use Social Media

Make sure to add links that allow people to share or like your links on Facebook, Twitter and several other social media channels. This is a sure fire way to help drive additional traffic to your blogging site. People who find your posts interesting are bound to share them with their friends if you give them the opportunity to do so.
