One of the most frequent questions I posed blog readers and editors who ask me for interviews in the media is what is the key to the success of a blog? This demand has increased in recent weeks with the arrival of Google and its constant changes in algorithms: which begs the question, what type of content continues to rank in 2020?
A ground answers the first question almost always ‘no idea’. It gives me some embarrassment to lecture on methods to achieve success in anything. First, because the concept of ‘success’ is relative and, second, because honestly I’m not one to consistently apply any of the standards that are supposed to make a blog or website a clearinghouse for Internet users. There are things that seem helpful and others not. I take what seems appropriate and apply everything that I offer my own ideas and way of understanding the Net and each online business model is different.
For example, I am convinced that the passion in what you do is a fundamental argument. Also put on a good design, according to your personality and content, and try to respect as much as possible web standards. Talk with your readers, participate in social networks like Twitter and Pinterest, readability and navigation to maximum, some SEO techniques, have a good sitemap date and send it to all search engines … In short, a whole cocktail between ‘secret’ recipes and personal that you have to go outlining daily according to your tastes, objectives, responses and progress of your website but as always, it can get a bit more complicated.
Understanding what Amazing Content really is
But I’ve always said that one factor that seems crucial: the content. Both then and now. With Google Panda or not. Moreover, I believe that this new algorithm Google what comes exactly is to recognize the demand for content creators against the ‘handyman SEO’ and the amount of resources devoted to reproduce content of others with a mere financial interest sites where not directly fraudulent (splogs, without going further).
If you have a blog, you are in the media business one way or the other and creating exciting, useful and original content is here, just for example take a look at Movies or a TV show, would you watch any of those if they were not properly edited, if the movies were not exciting or suspenseful? Internet content is the same, specially for blogs, if you want people to find you and come back to you one must create original, useful content.
See this photo above? This is a great example of a unique photo, this was taken years ago and this is one of my favorite cars, there is no other photo out there because it was taken by me, this is an example of what the definition of unique is, your content can be unique and original as well.
Therefore, reviewing the criteria that Google understands priority to ‘succeed’ in Panda, and melting at a million two questions: what is the key to the success of a blog or a website? and what is the key to content on the Internet ? For me practically the same (with nuances, as we have seen); I decided to develop this list in my special consideration, but which I hope will be helpful:
Creating content for Social Media is just as important as blogging
Original content: Create your own content, take the time and write about your own personal experience, your passion or your own opinions. Do not just copy someone else’s work, even if there is no copyright, you can quote if not copied but limit this to a few per article. If you write in another text, blog, website always bring something of your own personal approach. Value added will reward you with traffic and pageviews. Always indicate your way (how you got the original article) and your sources (the original article).
Quality content: In form and substance, take the time to edit your articles and make sure there are no grammar mistakes. What you say is very important and they are your own thoughts. As expressed, too. Spelling, syntax, narrative structure corrects, corrected and corrected before publishing follow correcting if necessary after publishing, I typically read my articles 2 or 3 times before publishing.
Content of Authority: Speaks of what you know, if you have experience in a specific subject or if you are an expert share your content with the world. So will you bring something really valuable to the community and can defend your views on the conversation you are about to create, people love to hear about other people thoughts.
Passionate Content: Talk about what you like and do it as if it were the most important thing in the universe. Actually, it is the moment for you. No matter what the topic is, if you have a strong opinion or passion about Politics, religion, Sports etc let it be heard through your words, people will find you and be excited to hear about what you have to say.
Amazing content can also be made for Youtube and other Video Platforms
Contrasted Content: Never trust 100% of what you read or see in or out of the network. Question everything. Investigate it all. Step into the shoes of an unbeliever or layman and reread your post. Within the Network you have many tools to clarify your doubts. But if necessary, pull phone or personal interview. People love video and if you made a video interview that would be considered original content, make sure to share it in Facebook and Twitter as well.
Documented content: The reader likes to know where things come from, what’s what and who’s who. Do not ever take anything for granted. It puts the reader at the exact point in history and conveniently offer him all the protagonists. How many times have you watched a video on a protest or a how to about something that you could not figure out on your own, a Podcast can have the same effect!
Hyperlinked Content: Link, link and link. Is there another word that best defines the web? Links out and links to the content of your blog-related topic that you are writing. This helps a lot to search engines. Most online newspapers continue to ignore this fundamental aspect. You do not fall into that error. This is also good content strategy that will bring you hundreds or thousands of visitors, everybody loves a good resource site.
Clean Content: Advertising has its place. Mix content and advertising is wrong. Passing an advertising text for a post, a scam. Your blog will have much more value the best content and have greater credibility. If you want to monetize, try not to forget. Always make sure to keep an eye on the type of advertisers that show up in your website and report anything that is a scam or unsafe.
Tips and tricks to help you learn to write amazing website content
Regular contents regularly updated. Set yourself your own pace. Updating a blog that makes little or no minimum regularly ends disenchanted readers and ‘expelling’ to search engines. If you want to start slow then a couple of posts a week will start to bring you some traffic, if you want to speed up your traffic and earnings posts a couple of articles a day, make sure that they are at least a thousand words and that they have a purpose, meaning and someone else will benefit from your content.
Unique Content: Always avoid duplicate content within your domain or site specific. Beware of all those pages of files and searches you generate. Best to remove or hide seekers, their own differentiated content. Customize them.
