12 Blogging Mistakes You’re Probably Making Right Now on Your Blog.

1: Not Using Pinterest

Pinterest is one of the most important traffic sources after google. It’s also used as a search engine.
Most of peoples use Pinterest as a search engine for their quarries.

So you can target Pinterest to drive traffic to your blog, most bloggers have done this and focusing on it more than Google.
If you are not using Pinterest then probably making a big mistake that has stopped you from getting success in blogging.
I recommend you to create a Pinterest account and pin blog posts.
That helps you in to get traffic from this platform.

2: You aren’t Promoting Your Post

If you have not promoted your content to the various platforms yet then probably have missing thousand of traffic.
I spend my 20% of the time on writing a blog post and 80% on the promotion.
Power of promotion is way powerful then you think.
You cannot seat back after publishing a blog post and wait for google drive traffic to it.
Share that post in various places such as Facebook page/groups, twitter, comments, emails, Pinterest and many more.
That would help your blog to traffic from various sources.
And in the internet industry don’t be relying only on one traffic source.
 

3: You Haven’t Chosen a Niche

Probably, your blog has not as successful as other blogs because you haven’t chosen a niche.
And writing on various topics.
For example, you are covering different topics like lifestyle, fashion, motivation, tech and etc in the same blog.
If you really want the better ranking in Google then you must have to choose your blog niche.
In the study’s found that Google love niche sites than sites that cover random things.
If you look at to my blog then you will see that I cover only blogging related stuff like SEO, social media marketing, email marketing, Affiliate Marketing and many more.
 

 4: Haven’t Collecting Emails

One of the biggest reason why your the blog has to success that you haven’t collected emails of blog visitors.
Having a big email list is an asset for a blogger.
You can monetize your email list with products and services that help you in to make money.
Email marketing also helps in to stick visitors at your blog.
Whenever you publish a blog post you can send a message to your subscribers to let them know about your new post.
That drive instant traffic to the blog.
You should have to be an email list to do well in nowadays.
If you don’t know how to collect emails then I have already written a post on this topic.

You can use tools like MailChimp and Helobar (they are free) to collect emails of your blog visitors.
 
 

 5: You Don’t Have Many Backlinks

Do you know backlink is the most important ranking factor in Google?
Because it tells Google that the site has the authority or not.
Backlinks help in to build site authority and a High Authority site rank better in Google search then less one.
When I was started my blog I haven’t got the better-ranked because of fewer backlinks pointed to my blog.
Then I started guest posting it’s one of the best ways to build High Authority links from good sites.
This type of backlinks loved by Google that would increase your blog ranking too.
If you don’t know what is guest posting?
It’s a process you need to write content for other blogs and get one or more do-follow links depends on the site owners.
It also helps in to take your blog to the new audience.
You can also try the various link building strategies such as Guest posting, Infographic, profile creation, article submission and social bookmarking etc.

If you are seeing your blog analytics more often than it would only hurt you.
Because it takes lots of time to get success in blogging.
First, give your blog 3 to 6 months and work hard on it and also publish some more useful contents.
These days domain authority unique contents and backlinks matter more to get organic traffic so first build them then over the time, you will see your ranking get clime.
You cannot get overnight success in blogging you will have to work hard for it.
 
8: Horrible Design
Blog design and loading speed are also important rankings factor.
If your blog design has not responsive and load pages slowly then it would not get a good rank.
Google already maintain that they rank responsive sites over none responsive.
If your site is loading slowly no one going to use and left immediately that increase your bounce rate too.
You should have to choose a responsive and first loading blog design that works on all types of devices such as mobile, tab and desktop, etc.
If you want to check your blog loading speed then you can use a free tool like Google Page Insights (it’s free) provided by Google.
 
 

9: You are not Posting Enough

Some peoples want to get success in blogging and make money from it with just 5 to 10 blog posts.
If you are thinking more about money than posting more valuable posts then you will get failed at blogging.
First, you need to give more values that means you should have to focus on post more contents at least 1 or 2 blog posts a  week.
In this way, you will have enough posts within 4 to 5 months.
Once you have more than 50 blog posts then you can start making money from your blog.
I personally followed this method for my own blog and this strategy helped me to create at least 10 blog posts every month.
 
10: Poor Content
If your blog posts are poor then they would not appear in the top searches on google.
Because google like unique and quality contents.
If a blog post has written in detailed and covers more topics in one post then it might have a chance to get better rank.
Most of the blogger failed in blogging due to poor contents have on their blog.
You should have to focus on writing a post between 1000 to 1500 words.
These types of post-work better than 600 words article because detailed content covers more topics and gets rank for various keywords.
 
11: Lack of Focus/Interest
Over time you might be not focusing on your blog and not taking an interest in blogging.
If you really want to become a successful blogger then you must have to take an interest that helps you to work on your blog.
And keep the focus on the blog to get achieve them.
Invest your time in your blog then wasting on things like watching TV, Playing games, and movies, etc.
 
12: Not Monetizing Your Blog
If you afraid of monetizing your blog or thinking you don’t have enough traffic to monetize your blog.
Then you are completely wrong.
If you have targeted traffic then 7 or 8 leads can help you in to earn handsome income from your blog.
So don’t think about traffic just monetize the blog.
Peoples did the mistake they think when having lots of visitors then will monetize a blog.
I know you can not earn money from Adsense with less traffic.
But, you can use affiliate links and sell your own products that help you to earn money with less amount of traffic.
Monetize your blog today.
