The biggest mistake novice bloggers are making that they are not updating their blog on a regular basis.

Yes, I also realize this error but for me but it’s like early rising.

Many bloggers in the industry are still making this mistake because they are not updating their online asset {blog/websites}.

According to Neil Patel, it is the biggest mistake of his career in starting days that he didn’t use to update his blog daily/weekly.

If God gave me the wish to recover one mistake from my past, I want to be more consistent.

Effort made on a regular basis are the main cause of your success

2.Theme problem

10 + 1 Ways You Can Improve Your Blog For SERPs

If you ask me about theme design or something related to theme designing, I don’t know anything about designing, and still I don’t want to learn theme designing

Because if you ask any “SEO expert” to design a theme then according to me and other industry leaders, he will give a simple answer in one line.

{In not trying to show that I’m an expert}

“It is not my cup of tea”

Yeah, you will receive this type of answers from many other great industry leaders because if they are best in “marketing” then they always want to become more productive in marketing itself rather then trying “SEO”.

OKAY !! {we are out of track}

Well according to me your theme has to have below-listed qualities:-

  • User-friendly  {First & must}
  • Neat & clean design
  • Eye catchy design
  • Easily understandable

I think it is easy to gain that much if you are not a designer.

Lesson Learned:- If your home is not painted with good looking color then no one will love to come to your home

5.Keyword Targeting

10 + 1 Ways You Can Improve Your Blog For SERPs

It is the biggest problem for every novice blogger.

They don’t know “How To Add a Keyword” in a way that doesn’t look like stuffed.

Try using “LONG TAIL KEYWORDS” and every time you write article use LSI keyword.

Use various search alternatives keyword which also have the same potential as same as the ranking keyword.

The search engine can quickly identify your stuffed keyword.

I recommend you to use a good keyword tracker tool.

Keyword stuffing is the worst thing that you do in with your article. As you have seen in the image above that “Affiliate Marketing” is common.

Here are few more points that you can use while placing your keyword in your article:-

  • In your full article, you can use 2% of wording to allocate keyword.
  • Add your main keyword in your first 100 words and also in conclusion.
  • Use alt tag and title tag for images because it can also increase your visibility via Google images
  • Don’t try to rank for single word keyword try to use “long tail version” of keyword

These sites don’t even have the meta description on the right place for them.

Many bloggers are ignoring small mistakes of “SEO” but if you want to rank high, then you should have to take care off all these simple steps.

  • Meta description

10 + 1 Ways You Can Improve Your Blog For SERPs

Earlier it is done for making a real connection with readers, but it becomes a good source to get visible in the crowded area.

These days many bloggers involve in a cheap thing called event blogging.

And to rank their event blog they do blog commenting further refer as blog spamming.

The technique is simply to find some “Keyword Luv and comment Luv” enabled blogs and insert your desired link in it.

Blog commenting is also an excellent process to show your online presence and intersect with like minded people.

9.Content manufacturing

10 + 1 Ways You Can Improve Your Blog For SERPs

Content can defeat anything in the world especially an undefinable one.

“Make great content and rule the internet”

Do you know the big industry leader John chow use to post 2 article every day in the begging of this blogging career and not that much he did it for five years.

It’s excellent work, and the best part of the story is that 100% people make promises but only less than 10% fulfill their promise

Many bloggers use to do re-wording of others content and even I also do but presenting that old aged stuff in a new format with a flavor of creativity is the best content manufacturing skill found ever.

Some veteran marketers say that copying articles are a bad habit …I agree

But re-wording it by putting your hard work plus smart work in it is not a bad thing at all.

I also use to write quality & original, but I also found this method very remarkable when it comes to writing a blog post that produces results.

Lesson Learned:- Produce some productive

10.Improve your blog by Copycat method

10 + 1 Ways You Can Improve Your Blog For SERPs

I recommend and follow this process

why?

Because it is the method build on the similar sketch as like moving man method, sweet steal technique or skyscraper technique.

But this approach has a different ideology which not only provides value but also tells everything about “how to write an article” or “how to do research for an article.”

Just as the name indicates the method is based on the “Art of cheating” with skills of marketing.

Yes, I said cheating !!

The copycat method is one of my greatest content and if you also want to learn “art of cheating” then stay tuned because I will be discussing the copycat method in my next blog post.

Lesson Learned:- Method which supports you in the marketing of quality content

+1. Interlinking

10 + 1 Ways You Can Improve Your Blog For SERPs

Interlinking is a quite easy way to get backlinks from your site {hahahah}

It can also help you gain exposure on your old blog posts and the related ones.

It is an awesome resource to explore your blog within your blog post.

Few primary profits of interlinking:-

  • Passes link juice to old blog post
  • Update your readers with your other articles.
  • Show yourself as an authority
  • increase your exposure

Inbound links are quality enrich links

You should have to link with right anchor text and with also with a relevant article.If you link your “SEO guide” with health related stuff, then it will cause harm more than profit.

Don’t work as an auto liker when you are interlinking your posts.

Use appropriate anchor text and move slowly and steadily.

Do not link to that post which is losing ranking in SERPs instead link to that post which is ranking on the top.

{So, I think you have enjoyed my plus one}

Lesson learned: – Make your empire within your blog
