Every blogger’s goal is to get noticed, get traffic, and generate revenue, but sometimes, the road to those goals is long and filled with obstacles. The main idea behind your blog is to write interesting articles that keep your readers’ attention. As long as you make this your top priority for your internet marketing blog, then the road will get a little easier to traverse. Here are seven questions to ask yourself to help you improve your internet marketing blog:
1. Do you get quality comments daily?
The real test for any content that’s on your blog is to judge it by your readers’ reactions. Do you get comments? And if you do are they quality comments or just spam filled comments? If your comments contain relevant information and start a conversation on your blog then you’ve created quality content that gets people talking. If this isn’t the case, then you need to take a look at the quality of your content.
2. Are your questions getting answers?
Another way to judge your content for quality is by asking your potential readers questions and seeing if you get good, quality responses. If you aren’t receiving any sort of reply or really low quality replies then that’s an indicator that your content isn’t engaging and needs to be fixed.
3. Are you ranking in search engine results?
Any good blogger knows that when writing articles in today’s world that you have to write with keywords and SEO (search engine optimization) in mind. If you target a certain keyword or keyphrase over and over again and still aren’t ranking in the first few pages of a search engine, then there’s something wrong with your content. Ranking isn’t necessarily dependent on quality, but it is dependent on the amount of traffic and activity that your blog generates. More traffic means higher search engine rankings. But that all depends on the quality of the content of your internet marketing blog.
4. How many links are there to your blog?
If your content is high quality and interesting then your readers are going to want to share it with their friends and co-workers. This will increase the amount of links back to your internet marketing blog which will in turn increase your search engine ranking (see how this all works seamlessly together now?) If your articles aren’t being recommended by your readers then you aren’t getting any links back to your blog. This is a good indicator that you need to fix your content.
5. Is there interaction on your social media profiles?
You’ve written a new article and are very excited about sharing it with your readers. You post it to Twitter and Facebook and nothing happens, what now? If you have a low amount of Twitter followers and a lack of Facebook likes then it’s time to take a look at your blog content. A lack of social media interaction can sink any blog in today’s social media driven world. Unique and creative content can help boost your social media followers which can give you a greater reach online. This can only help you boost your internet marketing blog’s followers.
