TIP #7: BECOME AN EXPERT
This will indirectly help you improve your blog posts. Becoming an expert on Quora or Yahoo Answers, will get traffic to your site, which will bring more viewers to your blog posts. More viewers=more pageviews. Also expect to get an uptick in comments and engagement. This little trick, along with the tips I outlined in this post, has me on track to hit 9000 pageviews by the end of month 2 of blogging. At the time of this writing, the blog is 5 weeks old!
TIP #8: OPTIMIZE FOR SEO
SEO is search engine optimization. This is what gets your blog and posts seen in the search engines. There are a number of WordPress plugins to help with this. My favorite is:
Yoast is the only plugin I use for SEO. It’s great because it helps you by ranking and scoring your post based on post length, keywords, and more. It makes the SEO process really easy.
Checking Yoast periodically, reviewing site ranking on Alexa, and checking Google Analytics are some things I do to ensure the blog is growing and improving SEO-wise.
Also, I can’t stress enough. If you aren’t aleady doing this, you want to write for keywords.
This means, choose a keyword and write your post around it. I use Google Keyword Planner to help me find keywords that are longtail and have minimal competition.
