Table of contents:
As a blogger, you need to have a focus. You need a particular industry, speciality or point that you expound on more than once… For example, if you have the passion for technology, why not blog about web design, web development, android, software, IOS, laptop reviews, phone reviews…
Having a specific niche help not only you but also your visitors. In a sense when they need any technology-related topic, they will be eager to log onto your blog.
Now just imagine you blog about technology and at the same, you also talk about medicine, sociology or accounting, your visitors will feel you don’t have a focus or you are just after traffic on your website and you may end up losing some of them.
Blogging is not all about how broad your content is, but how instructive it is. People usually do the mistake of focusing on only on the quantity. By quantity, I mean the length of the article. It doesn’t matter if you have one page filled with nutritional stuff than three pages that could be summarized on one page.
This also is helpful if you intend using Adsense on your site. Google always requires high-quality content on your blog before they can approve you. So please work on this important tip. It will also help you to rank high in google search result.
Talking about the value of your content I mean the “plus” your visitors get after reading your article. Remember there are a lot of articles out there talking about the same thing you are blogging about, the question is to know the difference between your content and those out there?
For instance, if you are teaching your skill, why not make use of video tutorials? when talking about an object, why not illustrate it with a quality image? Your blog needs to convey esteem.
How captivating are your articles? Ask yourself to know if people invest a considerable amount of time reading your articles? If you are having video tutorials on your blog, do people love watching them or they skip after some seconds. What is the average time your visitors spend on your blog? I recommend you install google analytics if you’ve not yet so as to track the behaviour of your visitors.
