It’s a bit of a juggling act when you first start off your blog, isn’t it?
I only recently came back to blogging, as I felt I had learned enough about the topics I blog about to actually have something to say that people wanted to hear. I think of blogs as being either like the Titanic, or the Iceberg. Hey, I know I gave ‘Iceberg’ a capital letter there but c’mon – it deserves a little respect; and it was no ordinary iceberg.
You can have a heavily loaded blog full of all the whizz-bang flashy gizmos that you are very proud of. An unsinkable luxury liner that heralds your internet fleet. Or you could have a wealth of experience beneath the water and show part of it above the water, on your blog. That honed area of quality content derived from a wealth of knowledge will sink any Titanic, any day.
That being said, there are a number of plugins that will help your blog attract and keep visitors and this post is one of many to come where I will share my thoughts on them. Who am I, that you should listen to me? Didn’t you read my about page? Aside from the info there, I spent over a year (full time) blogging the hard way. Doing everything myself, finding everything I could possibly find for free, writing my own posts, creating my own graphics etc. etc. I gave up. But there’s where all my wealth of experience and knowledge is. And I am sharing it with you here.
The plugins I am sharing today are ones that deal with that juggling act I mentioned earlier. You know that time when you have just started your blog but you are patiently building out the landing page. You know that if someone visits your blog they will find you at home in your pyjamas and the floor unswept. So it’s better to stick a “Do Not Disturb” sign up on the door. They will be much more likely to come back when you have your make up on and the kitchen sink isn’t full of washing up.
In the spirit of keeping your blog looking good while you do some tidying up, here’s a few ‘Out To Lunch’ themes you can use:
This is one of my favourites. What’s not to love about those funny round white people with no faces! You can grab this theme here:
This theme has a really nice simple touch. The pastel-ish colours are very popular lately and give a very modern look to the page.
Will black, orange and white ever get old? I doubt it as long as Amazon is around. It seems like everyone’s favourite marketing mix these days.
Not a big favourite of mine, but the percentage ready indicator is a nice touch and the ability to capture email addresses, Twitter followers and have an RSS feed to grab are all good ideas.
Ah, the Ice Breaker! A breath of very fresh air. All this ice talk makes me want a Mojito and it’s only 10am.
Don’t leave your theme on view forever, but it’s handy to keep one of these on your blog for whenever you make a monumental mistake and need to clean up without all your neighbours peering through your open front door.
All the best,

Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to start an online business. It’s free to get started and if you take the time to learn a few simple skills you can make a lot of money pretty quickly and easily. Your main job as an affiliate marketer is to drive as much targeted (people who actually want to buy what you are selling) visitors to your site. One of the very best ways to do that is to use affiliate article marketing
The basic idea of article marketing is that you will find a list of 5 to 10 good keywords for your niche. A ‘good’ keyword is a keyword phrase that has at least 1,500 searches a month but less than 20,000 competition. Once you have your keywords you can write several articles per keyword phrase. Make sure your article provides some beneficial information for your reader.
When you submit it to the article directories you can provide a resource box. This is where you can promote your website. You can provide a direct link here so that when people read your article they can click on the link in the resource box and be taken to your website.
While you can’t do any blatant selling in your main article, you can use the resource box to do your selling for you. Each article directory has it’s own rules, just follow those rules and you’ll get published.
This method is so effective for several reasons:
1. It’s free. You can write an article and submit it for free. It won’t cost you a cent. You can even use a free keyword tool online. You can submit as many articles as you want to.
2.You will establish yourself as an expert in your field. Don’t let this freak you out. Some people, especially those who are just starting out, can get intimidated by this. But just remember, you don’t have to know everything to be an expert, you just have to know more than most of your readers.
3.If you write a good article and target the right keywords you can have your article show up online for months, or even years. So, it will take more than one article, but you can write a few articles and have them stay online and drive traffic for a long time to come.
4. Submit multiple articles to several article directories. Don’t submit all the exact same versions. Instead submit several versions of each article. As long as they are mostly different ( I understand that if you are using the same keyword there will be a lot of similarities).
There are a lot of great resources available online that can help you build your business. Many of them are free and most of them are easy to use. affiliate article marketing
is one of the best methods of driving traffic to your website. It’s perfect for anyone who is getting started online and doesn’t have any money.
After the guest blogging dead, many bloggers are confused whether they should continue with it or not. However, it’s not like that you can’t choose the guest blogging now. Still, there are many blogs that are allowing you to post as a Guest.
Even if you provide a highly researched article to a blog, they might pay you. The youronline.biz is such a blog where you can get an amount of 100$ for posting as a Guest. But the article should be according to their need as they have mentioned in their Terms & conditions.
Well, there are still the opportunities for you to get exposure via guest blogging. The death of guest blogging is only for them who just want some backlink for their blog in return.
Many blog owners follow the strategies to host some giveaway contests. The Guest Blogging Contest is one of such contests that may help you to aware the world about your presence and get new audiences for the blog.
Currently, I have also participated in a contest on Trickmik[dot]com. And after participating I got to know the benefits of this participation. The trickmik.com owner has put a price for the winners as some amount. But there will be some more benefits other than just money in case if you don’t win the guest blogging contest.
So, in this blog post I’m sharing some goodies that you can get from a guest blogging contest.
Getting the new Audiences
Every blog has their own range for getting an audience. Every blog owner has their own Blogging network by which they get the reader and audience for the blog. Your participation in such a blog will bring the new audience, for your blog (in case you have provided your author bio along with the guest post).
Who else don’t want new audience?
After getting a positive response to your article, you will feel that your readership is getting boosted. When someone reads your article and leaves their feedback, then you are on the right path for increasing the readership. No matter who left it, but you are owning it.
Not only you are there to participate in the contest. A lot of people will crowd around you. The best thing I liked was the new connections with other bloggers. I even never heard of them, but now they are on my list and I am on their list.
Recently I made a new blogging friend Aman Bansal from moneybies.com
Would you like to get a new experience? What blogging always tells you is the learning. More you will learn, the more will you earn from it. However, I have felt no new change in myself yet, but I am sure, in the end I will be owning some new skills.
Do good, have Good. This is true in blogging also. If you will help someone, definitely they will help you back when you’ll need them. The only help a blogger ask is the sharing of the blog posts over social media and the feedbacks. As I have already told, every person has a specific blogging network of people.
By mutual sharing, you can get even more social signals for your blog articles.
In case if you are able to provide a very useful guide for the other people via your guest post, it will surely create you influence among them and you could be able to acquire some authority. (Who else will miss such opportunity J? )
The Joy of Winning
What happens when you used to finish your assignments and feel like a winner. In case, you are declared to be the winner of a guest blogging contest, you will get a huge exposure and that’s the golden opportunity to take away your brand to the next level.
As, I said above, I have also participated in the Guest Blogging contest. My title for the contest is
In this article, I have discussed a few guides that can help to continue the Interest and passion in the blogging and presenting it in the correct way. If you like that article then kindly leave some feedback there and share on your social profiles.
Google Page Rank is also known as Google PR this is a exclusive term about which every blogger don’t know completely. Every one does not know that how PageRank algorithm works or set the Page Rank of a site on which factors but with the saying of some pro SEO analysts I can say that Google set your PR according to your site backlinks. Backlinks are those links which from other sites points your site and they must be dofollow. You can read my post here :
Backlinks are organic and they must have quality if you start posting your links in the comments in other blogs and cosidering them the quality and dofollow links then you are making your own fool. They are just organic I mean if you create high quality content then other blogger will link to you to show their users. And the Google Page Rank a little bit depends on these dofollow links.
Have You Read These..
Anyhow,, lets discuss that how we can do that i.e Increase Google Page Rank. To increase your blog’s PR you have to do hard work I hope you will do it to get rank higher.
Backlinks are the factor on which Google set your PR and it also improves your search rankings. To improve your Page Rank, you must get quality links to your site it will effect your PR in time but not in the over night. This will transfer the traffic juice to your blog and it can help in increasing your Page Rank.
If your blog is related to News and Finance then you have to get backlink from the site which is related to your blog topic. This will give a big boost to your Page Rank.
I have already discussed many times in my blog that the content is the king. Without good and attracting content your blog is nothing. You can get a good traffic with a great content and can improve your ranking. Same the case with PR, if you have high quality content then other must link to your site and in this way you can increase your Google Page Rank.
Don’t copy anything from other sites. If you try to copy the content of others then Google algorithm will penalize you and if once you will be downgraded you will have no chance of getting up again. So keep in mind this while copying any thing.
Getting a backlink from high PR site is so difficult. You can use your own sites (If you have some) which already have good Page Rank, by using those websites you can get a dofollow and high quality link to your site. This can give a boost to your ranking and traffic. Because your other site traffic juice will be transferred to the latter ones.
Guest posting means to post on other’s blog and in return get a dofollow backlink. Matt Cutts the Google’s employee which says that the Guest posting can increase your PR. To get a quality backlink to your blog you must give something to the person that is giving you a backlink.
The goal is to post your content on a blog within your niche that will allow a dofollow link to your blog. Google’s bots will find those links, which you should accumulate over time, and they will favour your site more than blogs with fewer/no backlinks.
I mean never be crazy with your PR you cannot increase it in the over night it takes time. Do not post your link in every website as comment (I say it scrap). These links are totally nofollow your site will never get any PR help by commenting. If you commented in a blog which is not related to your niche but have good PR it will downgrade your site except upgrading. So keep in mind which sharing your blog link in comments.
Must Read These.
