Now, let us begin with the techniques these experts wanna share:
Hi Divyansh, I think it’s amazing that you have started blogging about technology, at the age of 12. Generally speaking, I think as a blogger, it would be to one’s advantage if you were to focus on a niche. Use a good blogging platform and a good easy-to-read theme. Moreover, blog consistently and use good English. Take care of the ad placements and don’t let it spoil the user experience.
Moving on to the advice, all I would like to say is that Don’t blog to make money. Blog to build a reputation. Money and recognition will follow.
Many waste time looking at their traffic stats and earnings every day. Don’t waste too much of your time looking for SEO shortcuts to get quick traffic. Focus on content, blog consistently, deliver interesting content and don’t give up.
Hope these tips will work for the newbie bloggers
Thanks for asking about the latest blogging techniques. I’d assume that you’re well acquainted with the other blogging techniques used in the recent times.
All I’d say is that I feel there’s nothing completely new – it’s just tweaking and improving the old techniques that can work for any blogger.
The most effective blogging technique is to write quality and compelling content. With the latest Google updates, you need to make it more relevant, coherent, and helpful.
Remember, just sprinkling the keywords won’t do the task anymore as it used to earlier. Now, you need to build your article on the foundation of your post title and use the keywords as bricks, strengthening them using the semantic keyword phrases.
Also, mention and link to influencers as well as authority posts and sites in your blog post, and take the conversation to Google+. And lastly, don’t play any tricks or use any black hat techniques – Google is smarter than before.
So, the latest blogging techniques appear in three colors – Golden (content), White (hat), and ever Green (topics)! Very much like the colors of the flag of India.
I hope it helps.
Though not a blogging expert, 3 years into this field has taught me few things. Latest or not, email list building should be the primary goal for a blogger. Whether the goal of the blog is to sell in-house products, affiliate products or any kind of services, an active email list generates recurring revenue. Nurture the interest of the subscribers. Don’t communicate only when you have something to sale, that’s not a recommended practice. Secondly, strive to write pillar articles.
Pillar articles rank better and have higher content longevity. If this means publishing every one or two weeks, it’s perfectly fine. Don’t compromise on content quality, that is, relevant, knowledge, information and actionable. Spend 30% of time in content development and 70% of the time in content promotion, which is the most difficult and rigorous part. While multiple traffic streams are good, focus your energy on one traffic strategy at a time.
My latest blogging strategy is being consistent and come up with some sort of unique stuff like case studies, infographics and videos. Along with this I understand search engines especially google algorithms well so that I can rank above all my competetors. Also have multiple sources of traffic, don’t always depend on single source of traffic.
Techniques? I can say there is no such things in blogging! Only SEO Can do miracles. Yes! Whether its a white hat or black hat its SEO ! See if you are trying to rank any website in google means you are doing something which is against . Fine my suggestion for every one is just improve your knowledge day by day. This help you to get succes soon. Form your own team and dont be like a one man army ! A team has more power then a single man. Share your knowledge !!

When Divyansh asked me to contribute in this topic, I know I couldn’t say no to. He is just too good for a superb young blogger.
When it comes to latest blogging technique, I would say don’t do the ‘old school’ methods. This means that you use various methods to spoon feed your readers.
Imagine a working adult or a college student. They are NOT going to be able to read your uber long post. So, creating various methods like podcasts, videos, sldies and even PDF’s are great ways to get them to (literally) read your blog.
Here’s an example of mine. The Art of Blogging for Beginner is 1,333 words long. While it is my usual blog length, many of my readers are only reading the starting and ending part of the blog. So what I did was to integrate podcast, downloadable PDF and a few high definition images to boost readers.
The outcome? Off the charts!
I am not a blogging expert but since divyansh insisted, I would like to share a few things I have learnt from my favorite bloggers. I strongly believe in the concept of three C’s
- Content- Post awesome content in your blog and yes you have to be awesome to stand out. Write for the users and not for the search engines. It does not matter how many words you write in a post, as long as the content is unique and a quality one. Research on what questions people are currently asking and answer their questions. These tips will give you organic traffic.
- Connections- Making good connections and being active on social media is equally important. Make good connections with leading bloggers as well as with your audience. This will bring referral traffic to your blog.
- Convert – When you start getting enough traffic try converting your visitors into your subscribers. Give those visitors a solid reason to subscribe you. This will increase revenue J
Lastly I would like to say that time is our biggest asset and one has to use it efficiently to catalyze the growth. It’s not just about blogging, one has to learn “Time Management” to be successful. To sum up, you cannot be efficient until you are organized.
If someone is asking me about the new blogging techniques I’ll say the best method and that’s nothing but “Be Unique” always try to write some unique and useful articles becuase writing on a single topic again and again sucks.
Learn the current trends of SEO and understand how the new google algorithm works.That’s going to help you a lot in improving the SERP ranks. You may be getting massive traffic from social media but keep in mind at anytime you can get a heart attack because you just can’t always rely on Social Media so concentrate more on your backlink profile and SERP ranks.

Question – Blogging Strategy:
Blogging isn’t just about making money online, nor even one should blog for fame. It is about sharing thoughts and motivating others through the inspirational articles that is been written and published in a blog. Apart from it, to say –
Success = Solid Strategy + Quality Content + Effective Promotion.
It isn’t that you need to hire an expert, nor even you do require to write a book about your plannings, just an outline of it can be great. By the term quality, I do mean – Write contents that is valuable for readers, have a great and unique writing style which can ultimately led an impact on your reader’s mind. On should also do effective promotion, in order to get huge expose.
Google and it’s algorithms are getting viral day out, however on can dominate it, by having Solid Foundation of Great Articles, and that’s the way to success.
Grab some attention with something outstanding!
And how do you go about this? Quality Content!
Write something that’ll make visitors totally absorbed, this will make them come back to your blog with their cup of coffee to read more of your content. In the process of them doing this, give them an offer they can’t afford to resist and on getting the promised “premium” information for free, they simultaneously become a subscriber.
How did I achieve this? I designed a homepage which helps me collect subscribers, designed an optin form on my sidebar and at the end of the post area. Whenever visitors read the content on the blog, they’ll be willing to subscribe to your blog for more updates.
- Quality content generates you traffic – Writing an atomic bomb out of your blog post
- Optin forms fetch you subscribers.
- An attractive and colorful optin form doubles the rate of signups.
- Product or information worth $$$ offered for free does the rest.
- Email marketing makes the day
Remember, the money is in the list
