This is just one angle of viewing the state of the blogosphere, On the other side there are some extremely resilient bloggers who broke all modern myth about blogging and made themselves as professional bloggers in a very short period of time.They are the people who foresees the problem and make themselves comfortable with solving those.

Now,here I am presenting you the same old blogging advice which you might have forgotten while trying to find the soul of your blog,The Audience.

These tips are ordered and will bring more good if you followed the order

Crack the Headline

Headlines,The very first sign of promising content. Headlines are like a key to crack your blog traffic.If you get the right keys you will end up with great traffic from social media websites.

Beware,Great headlines are like binaries,either you will end up with exploding traffic if your content keeps the promise that your headline delivered otherwise you will end up loosing your existing reputation.

Here I listed some of the best headline hacks that I use regularly

Add “How to” if your content solves any problems face by your readers.For example

How to Boost Your Brand on Facebook and Drive Traffic
How To Be A Guest Blogging Genius With Targeted Posts

If you add some specific goal attached to your headline then chances are there to go more viral, for example

How To Get Your First 2,000 Twitter Followers

Another great headline hack is to relate your blog post with the famous personalities,for example

Sometime you can emotionally blackmail your readers to read the content,for example

Instead of Emotionally blackmailing you can warn them like this

Don’t Do These 12 Things When Writing Headlines

Whatever the style you choose, the ultimate aim should be grabbing your readers’ attention.

People expect variety

All work and no play makes your audience a dull …Yes sometime providing lot of similar content will make your audience sick. Also possibilities are that you will also get bored with the routine.

Okay, then what can we do…Simple Publish mind blowing Infographics like Copyblogger,Record Podcasts and Videos like Ms.Ileane and compile useful list posts like Darren Rowse.

Whatever you do,make sure that it is interesting so that your niche bloggers would love to link it on their blog.

You need to put some extra efforts and spend a few bucks to create such contents but I guarantee that: you won’t regret upon doing it so.

Some of the famous marketing bloggers like Neil Patel used same strategy to grow his service called KISSmetrics.In his blog he states that

The strategy we used to kick off our long tail SEO efforts for KISSmetrics was through infographics. Within 2 years we were able to generate 2,512,596 visitors, and 41,142 backlinks from 3741 unique domains all from those 47 infographics.

Interviewing people from your niche

Interviewing peoples in your niche are a bigger strategy to reach core audience and also it is one of the easiest method to create engaging content.

To make the interview interesting and valuable you must ask sensible questions which benefits the readers and kindles the interviewee’s interest.

To host a perfect interview you need to read others interviews and explore the field in which the person is experiencing.

Mostly bloggers tend to interview the other blogger in his niche but you can show some variation by interviewing other peoples on the same niche. Take for example as a WordPress blogger I can interview some popular WordPress Developers and Owners of Theme companies instead of interviewing another person like me.

Lets take an example,Recently Problogger published an interview by Andrew Knibbe of Flippa,If you read it you will find that it is an interview about the state of the blogosphere than about flipped. That’s how your strategy should be.

    • Yeah its quiet true…If you have a audience base the headlines going to bring more traffic.Also in current scenario social media is playing a bigger part in bringing more readers.So I believe cracking headline is very essential for newbie bloggers also since it can bring more shares,likes,Tweets…whatever.
