Blogging Lessons – 3 Top Tips for Bloggers, Training Video No. 9 of 30 Tip 1 – To keep your blog content interesting to your readers, try keeping track of your older posts and which ones got the most traffic. When you see a topic that many people responded to, expand it and create other posts relevant to the original topic. This is where the old phrase “tried and true” really makes sense! Tip 2 – You can manage your blogsite traffic easily with Google Analytics. This will give you a good idea of how well your SEO practices are paying off. You will be able to see who has sought your blog and make certain that your keywords are really effective in getting your targeted readers to your blog. If you see that one of your tactics isn’t working, you will be able to change it right away to improve traffic to your blog and your search engine rankings. Tip 3 – Use the correct spam filter for comments. If you require registration to comment, a CAPTCHA on the registration page is usually sufficient to keep spammers away. If you allow anonymous comments, an “advanced CAPTCHA,” that is, one that asks the user for “the number of hours in a day” or something similar is usually enough. Avoid services like Akismet, as these can produce lots of false positives. The “anti-spam Bee” plugin can be good.
