Tips for Keeping Your Blog Up to Date

 

 

 

 

Keeping your blog up to date is one of the most important aspects of blogging.

 

This is so important because regular blog visitors expect new postings on a regular basis. Not all visitors expect to see a new post as often as

 

once a day but most blog readers expect the content on the blog to be updated on a regular basis. In most cases visitors expect new content on at least a weekly basis.

 

However,

depending on the subject matter the visitors may expect updates on a basis which is either more frequent. Similarly visitors may not be interested in receiving this type of information more than a few times a year.

 

Blog owners should be aware of the frequency of which readers expect new posts and should make an effort to oblige the readers with updates this often.

 


 

 

This article will discuss methods for keeping a blog up to date including scheduling a regular time to post blogs, using publishing tools wisely and hiring guest bloggers when necessary.

 

Finding Time to Post Daily

One way to help to ensure a blog remains up to date is to schedule time to post blogs on a daily basis. This is especially important when blog readers expect new posts on a daily basis or at least several times per week.

 

Bloggers who allot a specific block of time each day to researching, writing and publishing blogs are more likely to have a blog which is up to date than bloggers who plan on accomplishing tasks when they find time to do so.

 

There may still be days in which the blogger is unable to publish a new post on the blog but these days will be less frequent than if the blogger does not have a block of time strictly dedicated to keeping the blog up to date.

 

 

On days in which the blog is unable to devote time to blogging,

the blogger may wish to at least publish a short message explaining why it was not possible to post a new blog entry.

 

This will let readers know you are aware of their desire to read more information but are simply unable to publish a new blog post.

 

As long as this does not become a regular occurrence, blog visitors are not likely to stop viewing a blog simply because the blogger skips a day or two.

 

Taking Advantage of Publishing Tools

Some blog publishing tools enable bloggers to write blog posts ahead of time and specify when each post should be published.

 

This is an excellent feature for bloggers who want to publish new posts daily but are unable to dedicate time each day to writing blog posts.

 

This way the blogger can dedicate a block of time each week to write blog posts and have the posts published throughout the week. This is often an easier method for many bloggers because they are able to be more efficient this way.

 

Hiring Guest Bloggers

Bloggers may also want to consider hiring guest bloggers to assist them in keeping a blog up to date. This can be a worthwhile

 

method for bloggers who are not only having difficulty keeping their blog up to date but are also interested in providing readers with a little variety. However,

blog owners who opt for this message of keeping their blog up to date should carefully consider how the dedicated blog readers will react to this change.

 

This is important because some readers may not be interested in reading blogs written by a guest blogger.

 

Therefore the use of a guest blogger can actually be more detrimental to the blog than not updating the blog regularly. Bloggers can gauge reader reaction to the use of guest bloggers in a couple of different ways.

 

The simplest and most straight forward method is to poll the readers about the use of guest bloggers. This can be done by asking readers to comment on the issue and tabulating the comments received.

 

Another method to gauge reader reaction is to introduce a guest blogger and compare the traffic the guest blogger receives to the traffic the blog owner receives.

Top 10 Affiliate Website

Mistakes an Affiliate

Manager Sees

 

 

 

With over 12,000 affiliates to manage in 5 separate merchants programs,

I review countless affiliate applications and their corresponding websites.It isn’t a pretty picture. And that’s part of the problem.

So I thought it appropriate to share the 10 most common mistakes I see affiliates make over and over each and every day.

 

1. The affiliate’s website is poorly designed.

 

A lot of times it’s just plain ugly. Ugly I can stand if it has a purpose. I started my Internet career doing web design and programming. I understand good website design, both for function and look.

 

 

The affiliate site has to have at least one or the other to be effective, having both is the best. Without one or both of these factors,

what are the chances for a visitor to be referred to my merchant’s site?

 

2. The affiliate site has no affinity to the merchant site.

If you have a website without anything in common with the merchant, how do you expect to sell the merchant’s products to your visitor?

If your site is all about computer equipment, why are you signing up for my wigs site? Why are you wasting both of our times?

 

3. The affiliate site has no voice or character.

How will a visitor find value on the affiliate’s site long enough to have reason or need to click through on my merchant’s text or banner link? None I would say.

 

4. The affiliate site has too many banners or text ads.

How will the visitor differentiate my offer from the competition? If the site is messy and busy, I may get lots of impressions,

but click throughs will be low and probably conversions too. Don’t junk up your site with too many ads that don’t have purpose.

5. Affiliate sites with expired coupons.

Seeing a site like this implies it’s a “weekender’s” site a part-time affair. Many affiliates started out this way,

but today it is highly unlikely that such a site will generate any traffic or sales for my merchants.

 

6. Affiliate sites with broken banners.

It still happens, merchants change their creatives, affiliates don’t keep up and there is an ugly red “x” where a banner should be. Don’t let this happen to you.

 

7. The affiliate site has no privacy policy.

This is a red light for visitors. This means the site is just trying to make a buck and has no interest in visitors for any other reason than getting them to make them money.

 

A sophisticated consumer, as most are getting as Internet experience increases, wants a sophisticated site to convert through

Not having even a simple privacy policy is a giveaway as to the lack of sophistication of the site owner.

8. NO ABILITY TO CONTACT THE WEBSITE OWNER.

If you will not disclose who you are, provide an email link or a site form,

it is unlikely a visitor to your site will get warm and fuzzy about his site visiting experience and will not covert as a result.

 

9. NO CONTACT INFORMATION AVAILABLE FOR THE AFFILIATE MANAGER.

In olden days affiliates didn’t want to be bothered by affiliate managers. Now with the tools and special offers merchants can offer through producing affiliates,

it is essential for good communications between the affiliate manager and the affiliate. It means more money for both.

 

10. Affiliate website owner not participating in the industry forums.

More and more as I talk with affiliates, we discuss forum postings, industry news and blogs. The top producers know what is going on in the industry.

They are creating the news and are creating financial opportunities at the same time.

AdSense For Bloggers

 

Anyone can profit without even having a product!

Blogging has opened up an entirely new way of how non-technical people interact with the Internet, and now, anyone can publish anything about any topic – without having a website

 

Because you have joined the blogging revolution that is sweeping the net, and you think you might want to make a little revenue – or a lot of revenue – from your blogging efforts, you need AdSense tips for bloggers.

 

Blogging has opened up an entirely new way of how non-technical people interact with the Internet, and now,

anyone can publish anything about any topic – without having a website – and anyone can profit without even having a product!

 

Adsense for blogs make perfect sense. Google’s advertising programs are designed to work with sites related to the keywords for the ads that are being presented. Each time you add content to your blogs

 

Google spiders gobble it up.

The more you update, the more the Google spider visits your page. Ultimately, you move up in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) for the topics that you write about.

You see where this is going. The higher your search ranking, the more traffic you receive,

 

which ultimately leads to higher revenue from AdSense ads.

Also beauty of blogs is their potential for rapid growth. If you become known as an expert in your area of expertise,

word of mouth spreads quickly and your blog can become very popular. So it is vital that you always teach something with every blog entry.

 

You want your readers to come back frequently and they will if they know they will learn something. Not only will your readers bookmark your blog and return often,

 

 

but they will link to your blog enthusiastically as well.

People in forums will refer to your blogs and discuss what they learned. Websites will link to you as a valuable resource. In short, an informative  blog can grow very quickly if the information it provides is valuable.

 

First of all important to write about specific topics, and sprinkle your blog entries with specific keywords to get the best results – and the highest revenue – with your Google AdSense ads. There is a method to the madness.

 

Start your revenue generating blog by testing the waters.

  Decide what area you would like to write about and then do some keyword research. Research is easy if you use Google’s keyword tools found at https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordSandbox .

 

The keyword tools are located in your Google AdWords account.

Second you need a free AdWords account to be successful but you don’t have to fund it to use the keyword tools. Look for keywords related to your subject that are high paying. These are keywords where the bid amounts are high. Make a list of the top paying keywords,

 

use that list to determine what topics you will write about.

Remember, you want people to visit your blog time and time again, and build up a readership, make sure that your blog is well written and informative. Don’t just target keywords for the sake of targeting keywords – the writing needs to make sense! Writing valuable content is the first step to generating traffic to your blog,

 

 

 

 traffic is needed to profit from AdSense ads!

Third  youu are allowed to use the AdSense ad units in two different places on each page. You can accomplish this in a couple of different ways. First, you can add the AdSense ad code to the template for your blog. This is done through the control panel for your blog,

 

 some knowledge of HTML is needed. The other option is to paste the AdSense code directly in your blog post each time you submit a new post. You can use it once at the top and once at the bottom, or once after a few paragraphs of the post,

 

 again after a few more paragraphs.

Get that code in there however you see fit – but then pay close attention to the results so you can see what is working and what isn’t. Tracking is everything if you want to make real money!

 

Of course, you need to advertise your blog as much as possible as well. Make sure that you provide Trackbacks to other people’s blogs as often as possible, and that you visit blogs, leave comments –

 leave a link for your blog as well!

Blogging 101

 

Blogging 101 is mostly about the blogging vocabulary. To understand blogs, you need to know the terms blog, platform, domain, and web host. Once you have mastered these key elements of blogging, you can enter any conversation about blogging with confidence.

 

After you know what exactly a blog is, you will be on your way to passing the final exam of blogging 101.

Blog is short for weblog, which simply means a series of online posts presented in reverse chronological order. That’s all! Most blogs are text,  but there are also photo blogs and video blogs. The rest of blogging 101 has to do with the technical side of things.

 

If you are setting up a blog, you will need a platform, a web host, and a domain.

 blogging platform is a computer software program that allows you to write posts and to update your blog. Your platform is also what you use to design the look of your blog, from color scheme to font size.

 

The web host is sort of like the virtual file cabinet where your blog is stored. Your computer communicates with the host when you upload or edit a post. The domain is the online address of your blog, and usually ends in ‘dot com’.

 

Now that you know what a blog is, what a platform is, and what domains and hosts are, congratulate yourself!  You have passed blogging 101.
