Have a good website that is SEO Optimized, a good website user interface, and lastly make sure that the landing page has a call-to-action.
Also, make sure to create backlinks or have other blog or websites backlink to your blog. A good way to make backlinks is through https://hpage.com where you can create websites there and backlink them to each other.
This is a very common question among all newbie bloggers.
There are many things to do to make a blog really popular and successful and surely, that is not a one-day job. You need to have a long-term dedication, consistency, and patience before you start getting any success.
I am listing a couple of things which you must follow from the beginning.
- Have a domain name which looks professional and clean. Free blogging platforms are good to start but bad for branding.
- Design a stunning website, which is user-friendly and mobile responsive. Take care of your website's design, colors, fonts, graphics, interactive buttons etc. from the beginning.
- Start optimizing the contents properly and optimally. Doing this consistently over time will bring organic traffic to your blog.
- Optimize the Onpage title, meta description, primary header, paragraph headers, content, images, contextual internal links etc. before you publish a content.
- Check contents' grammar, punctuation and spelling errors before publishing it on your blog.
- Start creating long-form contents, and try to answer as many questions as possible on the topic (of the content).
- Build inbound links consistently and continuously.
- Remember your great contents are the main source of acquiring backlinks. Therefore, focus on creating great contents instead of short-contents.
- Diversify your backlink profile as much as possible. Don't focus too much on a single type of link and anchor text.
- Promote the content shamelessly once it is published. It doesn't mean that you should start spamming the internet.
- Make a list of websites where you want to promote your published blog post. All major social media websites, good bookmarking websites, content promotion websites can be used.
- Comment on real good blog posts with an objective of building a relationship.
- Pitch other blog owners and webmasters to write guest-posts for them. This will get targeted traffic to your blog, help in branding your blog, benefit your blog in organic ranking.
- Start building email lists from the beginning. You may use online tools for capturing emails of your blog visitors.
- Offer giveaways and other discounts on your website or blog. Promote those offerings on social media platforms to attract first-time visitors to your website.
- Make yourself very much comfortable with different online productivity tools to analyze data, quality, and performance.
- If you have a budget, you may also use Facebook marketing to promote your contents and blog.
I hope these will help you initially, but above all, you have to come up with great contents consistently to make your blog successful.
Additionally, you may also want to join a comprehensive digital marketing course to make yourself knowledgeable and your blog a real hit.
