Is Your Blog Bland?

Is your blog bland and boring like the one shown here on the left? Then there’s no wonder no one’s coming back! To get more people to read and subscribe to your blog, you need to make it visually enticing to match the intriguing content that adds value to the reader. Many writers forget that blogging is a VISUAL experience. With today’s visual media, you need to make sure you add pictures, diagrams, images, MindMaps and of course embed videos from YouTube.

A bland blog like this is created purely for SEO purposes and that won’t be worth much in the long run. Sure the immediate SEO effect will be there, but without HUMANS going to the pages, STAYING on the pages AND coming back, it will die a slow death within the indexes.

Don’t forget that when you launch a blog, you’re doing it for the end game – to have a loyal readership that wants to hear from you.

Make what you have to say exciting, appealing and attractive. Go from Bland To Brand!

Otherwise your blog will languish and all your effort will be for naught.

If you’re going to put in 90% of the effort (writing the content), why not go the extra 10% and get the REWARDS?

Just ask yourself one simple question…

“Would I read and come back to this blog?”

How to get more people to read your blog

Everyone who publishes a blog wants more readers and subscribers. The key is to find interesting and intriguing posts to publish. Like for example, an Eastern Suburb Sydney Dentist, Dr Cary Fraser published this blog post that proves Tom Cruise does not have a perfect smile… C’mon admit it – you’re going to click on the hyperlink. That’s proof that this stuff works. Make it interesting and it will grow organically and automatically…

Engineer learns to blog like a pro

Blogs are an amazing development – allowing anyone to communicate openly, publicly and globally. The big screen movie, Julie & Julia is but one extreme example and I have to admit is a pretty good movie. Anyway, getting back on point – even Engineers can learn to blog. I mean that with all the respect and admiration I have for my fellow colleagues since I too am an engineer.

Ray Keefe of Successful Endeavours in Melbourne has been in our Business Mastery Platinum Program for the past year and has produced some amazing results, but this latest one is definitely one I am really proud of…

An engineer blogging like a pro – who woudda thought?!?!

I mean take a look a Ray’s blog post about what’s so good about being an engineer. He’s used several of the tips I’ve talked about in previous blog posts on this and my other blogs.

For example, he optimises his blog’s SEO expertly for the keywords he knows his prospects are searching for and tells a story that people want to read even tell a few friends.

Go ahead and read his blog post and let him know how good it is by leaving a comment, he’ll really appreciate the encouragement.

Don’t Make This Blog Mistake

Just a quick post to make sure that when you do launch your blog – make sure it is on the SAME domain as your website or sales pages IF you want to create traffic to that site, page or product. If you create a separate URL, then ONLY that URL will get the SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) benefit…

This is one of my favorite concepts, improving 1 percent per day, every day. As I mentioned elsewhere, 1 percent improvement is about IMPROVING something not just ‘doing’ something.

That’s why I wanted to let you know what mine was today… I was going through my blogs and editing comments when my 1% popped out…

Avoiding Duplicate Blog Content

With Internet-based professionals working remotely from all four corners of the world, duplication of blog and web content has indeed proliferated, so much so that increasingly more blog authors may or may not be aware that some of their posts are actually duplicate content.

The Problem With Duplicate Blog Content

There’s no doubt that plagiarism is the easiest, quickest and least expensive way to generate content. But that strategy comes at a cost. With duplicate content, your blog won’t rank as well because the material has already been published. Google and other search engines are adamantly opposed to duplicate content.

Google filters out websites with duplicate content by using the Supplemental Index of its database. Simply put, the GoogleBot crawls websites and blogs and looks for similar strings and content among the pages to see if it already exists on the web.

Let’s say that your blog shares duplicate content with a thousand other webpages or blogs. The GoogleBot will only pick a small number of these websites to include in its organic search results while the rest will be delegated to the Supplemental Index.

How it actually does this is quite complex, what you need to know is that your blog can be pushed way below the list and might not appear in the first 10 pages of organic search results IF AT ALL!

Avoiding Duplicate Blog Content

As it is, it is imperative that your blog must have original content – even if you are not the original creator of that content and have delegated that task to a ghost blogger. But how can you be sure when there are millions of publishers out there on the web writing articles?

The solution is quite simple: use an article checker or copyscape. There are dozens of these on the web – most are free with premium services catering to different markets (academic, professional publishers, Internet).

There are several advantages to using an article checker:

  • An article checker helps you write original content.

When using an article checker, you reduce the risk of committing plagiarism.

When you key in a particular keyword in a search engine, it only reports the results at the ‘top of the rankings’. The challenge is that the plagiarised text is probably on a website or blog 20 or 30 pages down the list which means you’re not going to find it quickly or easily.

An article checker crawls web pages and blog posts just like a search engine and shows you how many pages bear the same strings that match your content. It “checks” your content against other published materials online and, most often than not, even your own sources. After analyzing your material, it displays a percentage result stating how similar or original your work is compared to others, the format of the report and details depend on the service you use. Premium services are substantially more detailed and are recommended if you use low-cost ghost writers for you blog on an on-going basis.

  • An article checker helps you protect your own original blog content.

Imagine producing original blog posts totally and seeing a marked increase in your rankings and search results with increased organic traffic. You’re happy, but then over a short period of time, your blog traffic starts to drop off for no good reason. What happened?

Someone might be having a field day doing a mishmash of your articles, rewording some parts, then passing them off as their own and getting YOUR traffic! In fact mirroring your success…

If you suspect this is going on, use an article checker. Since an article checker functions just like a duplicate content checker, it will track websites and blogs with content that are similar to yours. What you do when you find the copycats is a discussion for another day and blog post.

One last point:

Don’t get paranoid, just be diligent about what you’re doing if you use low-cost, remote sub-contractors whom you don’t know very well.
