A post by Paul Cunningham from Blogging Teacher. This post was written in 18 Feb 2011. How i wish there is a post like this when i was just started out blogging. Starting from the explaination of what is a blog, topics to blog about, choosing a domain name and web host up until how to get your WordPress up and running. Everything is covered in this post.
Even though the post is pretty long, i don’t find it boring as Paul include images, bullet points and links for some section breaks. If you are looking to start a blog, this is a post you must read.
In this guest post written for Smartbloggerz by our great friend Devesh, founder of Technshare and Blokube, he shared with us different methods of attracting blog traffic to our blog. This include various ways like commenting, guest posting, forum, social media sites, social blogmarking sites, videos and building quality backlinks. You probably can’t do all but it is a good guide for you to increase your blog traffic.
Alright the title does not consist ultimate guide but that does not mean this is not a massive post. This post itself has 178 comments. Marcus Sheridan from TheSalesLion is easily one of my favorite blogger for one BIG reason. When you are always anticipating a post from him, you know you are stuck in his blog. I read every of Marcus’s post. In this post, Marcus showed us 10 ways of getting tons of massive comments every time which his blog is a perfect example.
I am not sure what is the average comments but his highest record is 415 comments. How about that! What i like about this he doesn’t include too many comment plugins, instead he emphasize on how important you need to provide your own opinion and interact with people.
I came to know this post from Pat Flynn and man, Chris Kahler from BloggerItus had written a real killer post. Everything you need to know about great blog content, it’s all found inside this post. From the early stage of implement writing rules, essentials a great content must have, ways of structure your content to your content quality control, this is a massive value post that i highly recommend to read.
Talking about writing headlines, you look no further than Copyblogger, a blog that covers everything about copywriting. This post itself is a short one but there are eleven post included that covers everything about creating a headline that rocks. My favorite is definitely “10 Sure-Fire Headline Formulas that Work”. Which is yours?
When it comes to guest posting, you will think of Onibalusi from YoungPrePro. Oni has established himself of a guest bogging expert. In this post, Oni shared with us his valuable experiences of getting the maximum benefits out of guest blogging. What guest blogging rules you need to know, how do you find blogs to submit your guest post and how to develop your content, visit this post to find out if you are thinking of using guest blogging to expand your brand and exposure.
If i have to recommend one blogger for you to opt in to his email list, Pat Flynn is definitely the blogger i would choose. He provide massive value in his email and not even once did i receive a promotional email from him. I would say he is the perfect guy to teach us how to start a newsletter.
Pat managed to provide lots of image and the step by step to set up your autoresponder. You simply have to follow through to create your own mailing list.
If you are targeting search engine traffic, you will know keyword plays an important part for your post to rank high in search engines. Glen Allsopp from Viperchill had written a very through guide on keyword research. This is a long and massive post which Glen has been famous for. I suggest you to cast away everything that is going to distract you and consume the post slowly. Be sure to bookmark this post as you maybe overwhelmed by the length of the post.
I have yet to cover all. There are ultimate guides to get the most out of your social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, designs and whatever you can think of. I don’t want to stuff you with too many post as i want you to read each post and then implement the techniques mentioned inside the post. Enjoy!
