Blogs can be a very valuable and very profitable tool if used correctly. Publishing from a blog is just a matter of achieving the attention of the audience and not selling the actual salesman sales. In this article you will learn the 13 most important steps for successful blogging.

1) Where to start?

You must start your blog with free blog hosting services such as Journal Home or Blogger. Starting with free blog hosting services allow you to start blogging instantly without having your knowledge in advance about scripts, hosting, or programming. This allows you to focus on your content and not internal maintenance of blogs. The best benefits from the beginning with free services are, in terms of your blog not to be successful you don't lose money or you leave the bill. The great thing about blogs is that they are arranged in chronological order, your latest entry is displayed first. When your blog traffic grows greatly and you are ready to improve to your own domain then you can create your last blog an "moving" announcement entry. Just add the last entry that states that your blog has "moved" and typed the new blog URL address. Which directs visitors to your new blog site, keep your followers, without great inconvenience for anyone. Increase according to your needs ... but only when you need!

2) niche.

Niche is a targeted product, service, or topic. You must first decide on products, services, or topics that interest you. Select the area that you can enthusiastically write every day. You can use keyword writing services such as Google Zeitgeist or Yahoo! Buzz Index to find popular search topics. It doesn't matter if your topic is popular as long as there is an audience for your topic and this topic is right focused, your blog must succeed. Anything can be considered a niche while having the target audience no matter how big or how small the audience is. A blog about your cat can be a niche or blog about cat family species that can be a larger niche market, if someone is interested in hearing about your cat or cat family species ... You can even choose to build your audience for that market Nothing by the audience, but first of all you have to build your blog.

3) Update every day (no less)

This step is a must and not a suggestion. Updating your blog every day not only makes your blog more attractive to the reader, but also provide fresh content your blog on a day to day so that it is more attractive to search engines. Do not update your blog on occasional holidays or one day here and there it is understandable, but the missing days at a time or week are unacceptable and will most likely produce your blog unsuccessful. To keep your blog traffic and maintain your visitor's interest, it is a must to update your blog every day with several entries. You must try to update your blog every day with at least 3 or more daily entries. The best way to achieve this is to set aside 1-2 hours a day to take care of your blog and add new entries. It might even be wise to schedule the specified time you dedicate to your blog every day. Give yourself working hours and treat your blog as a job, what happens if you don't come to work for days or weeks ... you lose money or worse you are fired! The same applies here ... if you don't update your blog for days or weeks, you will lose visitors.

4) traffic

Not a secret. You must have traffic to get profit from the blog. There are many ways to build traffic. Paid advertising, free advertising, viral marketing, search engine marketing, RSS / XML feed, and word-mouth. You must always use your blog URL address in your email signature, forum discussions, message boards, or other communication media. You must send your blog URL address to the search engine and blog directory. You must send your RSS / XML URL feed to the Ping blog service such as Technorati, Ping-O-Matic, and BlogDigger. You must confidently share blogs with family, friends, coworkers, colleagues and business professionals when dealing. Many blogs can be considered as a collection of articles, for this purpose you have to send your blog entry (which is a valuable and long article) to content sindicator such as Goarticles.com or ArticleCity.com. After submitting your article can be taken and published by others. The trick is to make sure you enter your blog URL address in the "About Author" section. What is done is to make the popularity of links and backlinks for your blog, when someone takes your article from syndication then publishes articles on their website "about the author" included with any publications and links that you include followed, crawl, and indexed by search engines , Imagine if your article is quite popular or controversial enough to produce 10,000 publications throughout the web. Search engines are bound to find your site in a short time with many publications and appreciate your authority on the topic, instead increasing your ranking in search engines. Small efforts to write well-written articles are useful. You must try writing at least 1 full article every week to syndicate and submit your articles to at least 10 article Sindicators.

5) Track your blog

How do you know if your blog has traffic? Just because no one leaves a comment does not mean your blog does not grow. Many visitors don't leave comments but they restore visitors. I know it sounds crazy but with blogs people are more interested in what you have to say! Many visitors not comment on 2nd, 2nd, or third. Some don't comment at all, but are active daily visitors.

Tracking your blog does not have to be too sophisticated Usually a simple free page councator such as StatCounter.com or an active meter will do tricks. Install (Copy / Paste) Code to HTML from your blog template and start tracking your visitors. It's better to use services that give you advanced traffic analysis, such as keyword tracking information, reference information, and search engine information. Visitors, return visitors, and unique visitors must be standard for whatever page counter services you choose.

6) Listen to your audience

When using the right page counter you have to start seeing how other people find your blog and if through search engines, which keywords are used to find your blog. If your blog continues to be found by 1 or more keywords then focus your blog around these keywords to make it stronger. When writing titles and entries use the keyword as often as possible while keeping the blog readable and interesting.

7) some blogs

Use multiple blogging accounts to attract more people. This means you have to have a blog with journalhome.com, blogger.com, livejournal.com, blog-city.com, tblogs.com, etc. The more blog accounts are better. You can copy / stick from 1 blog to all the others. Have different blog accounts like having publications in various newspapers. This allows you to attract more visitors and this also increases the likelihood that your blog will be in search engine results for focused keywords.

8) Short & concise

Apart from articles that are long a week for syndication and publication, your blog entry must be brief & concise (if you can help). Sometimes there are exceptions to the rules and you have no choice but on a long blog entry, but try to avoid this as much as possible. You don't want your blog entry into hours reading. Visitors like to find information and skim easily through your entry. It is good for detail and provides useful information, but does not include useless information or escape sentences that move away from your topic.

9) digital art

Try to enter non-ad graphics, pictures, photos, and art in your blog entry. Not too much. Once a week is fine. Chart sometimes can bring your blog to life. Of course, blog content is the most important aspect and you don't want to shade your content with graphics, but displaying graphics can add a few spices to the blog. Become a voter about your graph and make sure they match the topic of your entry. You must add content with a graph, at least the description. Original graphics, photos, pictures and art recommended.

10) Keep it private

A most successful blog when it's kept personally. Try to include personal experiences related to the topic of your blog's entry. Stay away from business writing style. Write in a more personal style and use the first narrative. Don't write your entry as a sales letter, conversely for product reviews and personal businesses.

11) Interact with your visitors

You now have traffic that you deserve. You must start interacting with your visitors. Create ordinary themes such as: "Monday's Money Tip" or "Week Images" that captivate your readers to stay tuned every week.

Give your receipt advancement notifications about a product, service, or topic that you will review and then talk about later. If the President is scheduled to give a speech, then on your blog, you must declare that you "will discuss speech and give your opinion after the speech delivery. Comments will be appreciated".

Try the best to find not many exclusive information. Don't disclose confidential or confidential information that is considered illegal or potentially make you trouble, but try to get a spoon before other people do it. Like: if your blog about Paris Hilton (socialite) and you have a blog entry about "Paris Hilton will get married" it will appeal to your readers if you have a true picture of Paris Hilton Engagement Ring. Give your best effort to dig and find information for exclusive information and you will find something useful. Your readers will appreciate this and they show their appreciation through word-mouth reference. Imagine how many readers will tell friends, family and more about information that they can only find on your blog.

12) Make money

After your blog gets some real momentum and your blog traffic increases, it's time to start thinking about changing your traffic to profit. You must use contextual ads, such as Google Adsense or Chitika. Contextual ads are usually text links that use your blog content to publish targeted ads on your blog. Payments are usually based on the pay per click model, meaning forever clicking your ad a small part of the profit. In addition to contextual advertising, it is good to also use graphics ads such as: Blogads.com, Amazon.com, Mammamedia, or general-sponsored ads.

13) You are a professional

You need to get a web host and choose a domain name for your blog and check the availability. Select the blogging software you want to use, such as: Squarespace.com, wordpress.org, Movabletype.org, etc. When you have your new blog domain settings and ready for traffic, it's time for you to announce your steps on all your blog accounts before. Your last entry to a blog must be an announcement "Move". The title must be "moved" and the blog entry must state something like "the old blog has been moved to a new blog, please follow and bookmark this link for future reference: http://www.yournewblogdomainname.com". In this way all the new visitors and new readers should have no problems finding your new blog domain.

At a professional blogger level, you might want to work with 1 or more other bloggers. This will create a blog that is more interesting and stronger. The old said "two heads better than one", more writers mean more advertising and exposure because each writer will have personal interests on the blog. The idea of ​​a team of teams is to make it profitable and beneficial for all authors, while continuing to target the topic of blogs and keep blogging blogs for visitors.
