Usually blogging is a way where you interact with millions of online visitors. Usually people are blogging for two good reasons, first reason is just for hobby and second is for business purpose. However, according to me a good blogger is one who combines his hobby with business ambition. If you are able to do so then you can be a successful blogger. Nevertheless, what happens that most of the bloggers fail to establish themselves for many reasons. It can be copied content, no punctuality, etc. However you can avoid failing as a blogger if you know what actually constitutes a good blog post. So let us look what are those five Key Ingredients Every Blog Post Must Have.
The first thing is finding the right direction. You must know what your blog is all about? I mean to say it must be objective rather generic. Hence, you must identify exact niche of your blog in the very beginning.
You have to write blog posts according to that particular niche only. Whether it is SEO techniques like keywords density, tags, title or other things, for Google search engine it is always easy to pull out content, which are objective.
Try to develop content pertaining to your niche only, I am very sure that sooner you will be able to establish yourself as an authority.
Next thing that your blog must contain is good content written for a particular audience. In fact, blog niche and target audience are correlated to each other. You write good content according to audience in your mind.
If you fail to recognize your target audience then what ever you write that would have little or no importance. Your blog would only be read, if it is relevant and directly relates to online visitors. Before you write a blog post on a particular topic, you must try to know what is your target audience related to that topic.
You must find out what people are searching online. If they have problem then you must address them in your blog posts. You will be able to build a rapport with your readers.
So always, know your target audience.
Well! Folks content is king here. I said in my previous paragraph that you should develop content according to your reader’s demand or their quires. So that your blog remains relevant and you never run out of content.
Please do not try to copy or plagiarize content from some other websites. I even recommend that, do not rewrite articles or posts using software like Article spinner, article rewriter etc. These things are total waste of time.
People will come to your blog only when you are offering something new and informative to them. It must try to address or solve reader’s problems.
Therefore, stay in touch with anything that is happening in your niche.
Even if you are only blogging for your hobby and not for any business reasons, then also I suggest you not to miss any promotional opportunities. Now what are promotional opportunities? Well! It can be many things.
First thing could be promoting a product, which could be related to topic of your blog. Later on when your blog start receiving great web traffic then you might like to sell products as an affiliate. Hence, your blog gives you promotional opportunities.
Second is getting advertising space. You can place ads from different ad networks and get paid for impression that your blog receives. This could be another promotional opportunity.
Feedback and List Building
Final ingredient that is going to complete a good blog is feedback and list building. If you notice a popular blog, you will see many comments. Comments are nothing but feedbacks, which tell something about your blog. You can improve your blog and communicate in a better way with your readers.
List building is nothing but you collect the name and email address of readers coming to your blog daily. Never under-estimate the power of list building. Readers must subscribe to your blog as it is a good sign.
Tomorrow they might be your potential customers.
Finally, in conclusion I would say there are five ingredients that make a good blog post. First one is the exact niche or topic of your blog, second is the target audience, third is good content, fourth is considering promotional opportunities and last one is feedback & list building.
If you write every blog post around these factors then you might be successful as a blogger.
