If you are looking to start blogging here are details that you need to consider.

Blogging is a passion. But for most marketers blogging is a business today. Gone are those days, when people use to write in their personal journal about the things they like (what they did in a day, fashion, hobbies, any piece of information). As the users of the internet have expanded, bloggers have found opportunities to make passion a living.

But there are a few important things to consider and know why you should choose an online platform for your interests. This can be done by contributing to other websites or creating a website of your own.

Points to consider while publishing an article:

  • Proofread the article to eliminate any grammatical errors and also review the technical aspects to see if the article is ready to convey what the readers are looking out for.
  • The article should be relevant to the title and try covering every bit of information you can on the subject
  • Write the title and descriptions that creates an urge for the audience to open the article. It helps with the CTR (click through rate) which inturn helps in the better ranking of the articles
  • Maintain a uniformity with the title case. You can always make use of some tools like titlecase.com, titlecaseconverter.com etc which will make the work easy for you.
  • Make sure that the article does not contain text continuously, always note that people who land on your page might be looking for a piece of particular information which is covered in your articles. You are failing to convey the information with your presentation, hence include headings and sub-headings for paragraphs. This will help the reader skim through the article and find the specific piece of content
  • To reduce bounce rate and make the user stay longer on the article include images,giphy, tweets, videos that are relevant to the article.
  • Adjust spacing between paragraphs for better readability
  • Add elements like no.of views and no.of likes that adds credibility to each article page.
  • Add meta tags optimized with keywords for search engines to understand the topics covered in your blog.
