  5. Hey Lye,

    The only thing I’d add is to the starting a blog section. Glen Allsopp has also embarked on new project called ‘blogging case study’ which I think would be really handy for newbies. Goes into A LOT of detail

  8. Great collection my friend. Have you had a chance to tried out all these great advice? If I ask you to rank them and list down your top ten, what will that be?

    I can barely implement 3-4 strategies at the moment. Need to just focus on what works and is most effective.

    BTW I have a debate on personal development now on in my latest post. Would dearly love the opinion of a fellow Singaporean. If you can direct more Singaporean bloggers there to chip in their views.

    • Lye Kuek Hin says:

      Hi Jimmy,

      I am slowly implementing. To be frank, i won’t be implementing all because i need to focus on what works for me too.

      It’s difficult to list down as all are important. We need to think which is the most important to us. Traffic? Comments? Subscribers? Conversions? We need to work and based on our needs.

      Have read your post and actually comment in it.

      Thanks for dropping by again.

  12. Hi Lye!
    Of all the posts you mentioned here (although all must be good and with quality content), I prefer the one I already checked out and it is the Ultimate guide for bringing traffic to your blog (on smartbloggerz). I think it contains many useful information related to this topic and it is something all bloggers have to read through (not just run through).

    • Lye Kuek Hin says:

      Hi Kristina,

      That’s a guest post by the talented Devesh. All post above must be read and implemented, then it can be useful.

      Thanks for the comments.


  13. Pat Flynn is definitely a beast like Chewbacca when it comes to internet marketing.

    If he has a post on how to monetize your blog, I would definitely pay attention to that post. He’s one of those guys who doesn’t just talk about it, he does it.

    Thank you for introducing me to some new bloggers here Lye!

    • Lye Kuek Hin says:

  17. Blogging can be very difficult at first but very promising once you already have a reliable strategy for this to be success. You’ve listed a great techniques to attain blogging success. I actually started to dig the keyword research from viperchill site. I would really like to learn more about it.

    • Lye Kuek Hin says:

      Hi Chris,

      The post by Glen is awesome. To be frank, i don’t pay too much attention to keyword as it is too complex. I just focus on writing for my readers.

      Thanks for the comments.


      • You’re absolutely right! Choosing the right keywords thru research can make you crazy because you also need to consider some factors in order to come up with the best keyword for site. But your strategy can’t beat any SEO stuffed posts, that’s something for sure. Most of readers do visit your blog because of great contents that you used to provide them. Among anything else, it’s the most important thing for that a blogger needs to focus on.

      • Hi Lye!
        There are 2 kind of people!
        One who writes for readers!
        The others who writes for SEO!
        I like it when you said you write it for readers because when you write for readers your language is simple and so it can be followed easily.

  18. I recently bookmarked this post. I just love reading such working tips. Bu I think you should have write the guide on keyword research first than the other stuffs. It always comes first right?
