Five Useful Tips to Help You Attract More Readers to Your Blog

Optimizing the content of your blog is essential if you want to engage your readers and attract new ones. However not all bloggers know how to take advantage of the benefits of a blog, especially from an SEO perspective – in other words, making it as best as possible for search engine optimization so people actually find the content via Google, Bing, and Yahoo.  Here are five tips to help you publish content online that has more chance of being found, read, and shared.

Write on Interesting Topics That People Want to Read

It’s not good writing about the evolution of the micro-pig if nobody wants to read it. Take a look on Google for other blogs in your area of interest and see what subject they are covering.  You can then use the Google Adwords tool to search for keywords relating to a topic.  The tool will show you how many people are searching for your subject each month, including the competitiveness of the term.  This will give you a great start and an idea on what to publish.

Create a Catchy and Compelling Title

The first element that potential readers will see in the Google search results, is your article’s title.  For this reason it should be catchy and invite your readers to want to click through to find out more. Make it short and concise still, as titles like this will then appear when shared on Facebook and Twitter, letting even more potential readers see what your blog is about, before hopefully clicking.

Interact With Your Readers

It is very important to create a bond with your readers so they feel involved and will continue to come back to your blog. To do this, interact with them by asking questions at the end of your articles asking them what they think, or posing a question in the comment section.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for SEO Help

Most bloggers are not IT specialists.  There are many things that a blogger can do though in terms of optimising their website to make it rank better.  If your blog is starting to become popular and is making you money then it could be a good time to enlist the services of a search engine optimisation company (you can see an example of one in that link).  Good SEO companies will help you rank better by helping you to build relevant links back to the blog, looking at your website code, and other factors design to help your blog content be listed higher up in the rankings.

Share Your Content on Social Networks

If you haven’t already, make sure you sign up to the main social networks of Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus and then link those accounts back to your blog.  When you publish a new blog post make sure you share it with your subscribers who may in turn share it again, thus increasing your blog visits.

Why Niecy Nash’s Web Series Can Mean Cash to YOU

Web series are finally making money!
With the Yahoo and NBC Universal coming together we now have a platform to make money with
the web series. I say we- not sure how the general public can get in on it, however, the entertainment industry now has more options. It is driven by commercials just like TV was. However, NCB Universal has not problem getting commercials, they can simply offer more
options to current advertisers and even better commercials. The commercial I watched was about ice cream ( at 7:56 am) and featured a we

ll known YOUNG actress and a director known for his FILMS. They are calling them mini films. Not only will you have a new genre of director (Hi, I directed the most popular mini-film/commercial ever!) and more work for a name brand.

I also applaud Niecy Nash for reinventing herself and moving with the times. She is a smart lady! She went from Reno 911 (comedy) to Clean House (Reality TV- Hoarders- Lite) to
this web series. Yahoo is the number one web directory (check Alexa yourself) and so the distribution is huge. I think this is the official move into big dollars for web series, especially if you can connect to someone who can push traffic. This is what I expected from Google TV and even Apple TV however, I do not think it is happening just yet.
First to Market is … well first!

Products are sponsoring web tv series to get more exposure.
Hint: YOUR product should consider sponsoring Web Series:
