5 mistakes which could stop the progress of your blog

by Sushant Risodkar · 39 comments

In blogosphere, almost every blogger claims to have thousands of subscribers, getting lots of traffic and is making big money with his blog but that is right now common all around and has nothing wrong. But the problem arises after sometime when you are telling the fake statistics and you know it’s not going to help you anymore and you need the real thing.

Blogging looks more easy when it has real support of our fans, that is why we should try to avoid some common mistakes, which no doubt can stop the progress of a blog.

Mistake 1 – Worrying about earnings than our Readers

It is very clear than in order for our blog to function properly, we must have some money so that the cost of maintaining a blog can be taken care. But here we have to keep in mind that we are making money with our blog through the web users i.e the readers. I think we should really place ads on our blog for profitability but we must maintain a degree of respect for our readers. We should not treat them as a “Money Making System”.

Mistake 2 – Unconcerned of our blog

Considering that we have blog, we must know that it must be maintained, updated regularly and should correspond to the readers comments. Like first measurement we should answer all the questions,complaints or suggestion that appears from our readers side. Secondly we should take care that we are updating the blog content on regular basis plus also taking a little bit care of our blog design.

Mistake 3 – Not Linking and not getting Linked

For a blog to be known properly in the blogosphere it is important for that blog that it’s articles are linked from other blogs. Moreover a blogger should also consider himself linking other blogs as a part of marketing tactics. This way he can increase the readership on his blog plus he can also increase connections with other bloggers.

Without connections, a blog practically can not progress.

Mistake 4 – Wasting time for no reason

If the time you are getting for blogging is not limited then it’s no problem. But bloggers like me who have limited time for blogging should not waste time in stupid things, and the time we get for improving our blog should be considered worth gold. The time we get should be properly utilized in many things like improving the content we are going to provide, try to find different ways to build backlinks and do the best possible things to attract quality traffic to our blog. Wasting time is one of main reason why a blogger doesn’t succeeds. Our blog will improve very less if we don’t manage and utilize the time for blogging properly.

Mistake 5 – Not Participating in other Blogs or Forums

As mentioned earlier in this post; Time is worth Gold. That is why we must manage out time not only for our blog but also to take part in the conversation in different blogs. If you are going to comment, make sure it is not a spam, nor poor, nor by any nature destructive i.e. our comments must be constructive and should possess some degree of kindness, respect and should be helpful or informative for others.

Undoubtedly, all of us might have committed that mistake anytime from the growth of our blog. We must ensure that these mistakes should not happen again and again as it will stop the Progress of your blog.

So go on, think carefully on this article and tell me whether you have done any mistake ever in your blogging journey which could have possibly slowed down the progress of your blog and also do lemme know, what do your think about this article.

True points. Specially about the linking and backlinks. I always believe in linking and letting others know about related stuffs. The more you share the more you are respected. I recently also made my fews days old blog Killerbloggers.com dofollow.

Again another excellent post from Typhoon.

I got a question though. For new bloggers, is a niche important or can you start a blog without a specific niche? I was thinking if a blog doesn’t have a specific niche, will it attract visitors and links as much as niche blogs?

If you don’t know what niche to chose and thinking you will write up about anything then it would be hard to get large amount of visitors. For those type of blogger, proper seo optimization is the most important as those blogs will get traffic mostly from Google and other S.E.

Participating in forums and social networking sites like Digg and Stumble Upon is a great way to get traffic while your site still is progressing as a newbie in the search engines. Not only will it replace search traffic for now, it better prepares your blog a large reading community before the search engine traffic starts kicking in.

Blog must get back links from other blog. Yahoo and Big counts it a lot. For Google, we must get back links from the blogs of the same topic as ours.

all are useful points. The most important thing is the last point. Many dont know the value of commenting in other’s blog. This will be very helpful for both the bloggers.

Point #3 and #5 have related keyword. It’s all about “To socialize”. Without have any connection, as said on #3, it’s just like world with only 1 people. That’s mean it’s same like dead, no one help you when there is a problem, so boring, etc….

So i think #3 and #5 is surely important.

For #2, that’s why passion is needed for blogging.
