In blogging it is very important to follow your interest. Choose the topic in which you are interested and have enough knowledge in that feild. This will enhance your writing quality. I have have interest in topics like Blogging, Digital marketing, and Tech related stuffs so I choosed to write about these topic. Before writing a post ask to yourself “Do you have enough knowledge on this topic?”.
7. Become an Authority blogger
Your blog should be your identity and your authority. Now the only question that arises in us is how to become an Authority blogger. Follow these steps to transform yourself into an authority blogger.

Always try to give opinions on social media on every hot and trending topics. Each opinion should be valuable for them. Show yourself as a pro level blogger.
8. Always give credit to their works
A very common mistake amature bloggers do that is not giving credits of the extra things they include in their post like images, quotation lines, videos, etc. If you also do this, it means that you need to bring it inside yourself. If a person is doing better than you, then you should give credit to that person and that person should never be jealous.
Every person in this world is better than anyone or any person. You should see the work of the people and if you feel that this person is doing a great job then you should praise him and share his content too.
This habit will increase your self-confidence and you will also get professional respect.
9. Build Networks with other bloggers
All successful bloggers prefer to show their brands more than their name. But you should make at least one corner for yourself-the author. Make an author box so that when someone visit your blog the can connect with you also.
Give yourself some time to read other’s blog and always try to give feed backs. It will make your existence in the blogger’s community.
10. Try to make Business Network
To become a pro blogger, building a strong network with the visitors is very important. In the right words, it is a very important thing.
You get more respect when you have a great network. Which makes your Confidence even more.A business network plays a very important role in growing your business.Connect with your subscribers via emails
You can use social media to create these networks. Social media is one of the best tool for this job. It is, therefore, necessary that you give some time in your time to make a great connection. Do not make connections with people only for their own benefit but instead try to solve their problem.
11. Select Brand Topic
If you want high traffic in your website you have to increase the number of topics. Such as if you want to make a blog related to Cricket then you should your blog related to Sports. Keep your scope bigger than big so that you have more options to write. Keep in mind also that your blog is of interest to masses. That is, there are crores of people who want to read such things, only then can create a high traffic blog.
12. Your blog should give Service
Remember if you Have started blogging for earning money then you will get demotivated quickly. The purpose of your blog should to serve the people. Readers read blog for gaining knowledge, for solving their problems, or for research purpose. Whatever will be the purpose people wants the best service.
If you focus in your service, your blog will automatically get noticed. And hence traffic will also improve.
13. Link other related posts in a post
Whenever you are writing an article and if you are telling something about it in which you have written something before, then give it a hyperlink.

For example, I have mentioned about the inspirational speech of Steve Jobs in some of my posts, so I hyperlink their name so that if the reader wants to read more about them, then click on their name to reach that post.
14. Post Valuable Contents
I had already thought that I have to create value, that is to make something that is beneficial for people who can really help them. I have always put a lot of emphasis on QUALITY of Article. Never post just for posting even though there is some gap in your two posts … but do not compromise with quality.
And remember that regardless of the topic you blog, travel blog, finance related blog, music blog etc … value can be created. You have to treat your readers as a KING and they can give as good one as possible to read them.
Perhaps you are funny but occasionally when I write an article, I think in my mind that this article will be read by INDIA’s Prime Minster, and automatically my quality improves. Keep in mind that millions of people will read your articles and they should not be time-free.
15. Understand how people search on Google
Most of the traffic comes from google, after all google is the most famous and most used search engine in the world. When I write any blog post, I try to include such keywords that people can use to search such articles. For example: When someone wants to read tips related to blogging, he will generally search for “Blogging Tips”, and that’s why I keep quoting titles related to quotas as “keyword”. Apart from this, using keywords in the post also allows you to come up in search results.
16. Make blog layout Attractive and Professional
When a visitor comes to your blog, he should feel well. When I started the blog, one mistake was made that the background was black and the text was white … which was attractive in view … but there was a slight strain on the eyes, so later I changed it. Black text and white background are the most used, so if there is any confusion, then do this for them. Posting using one-half image inside the blog posts looks a bit attractive, besides you can use any other color for headings rather than keeping all text black.
17. Try to run One blog at a time
I have noticed that many people make 3-4 blogs together, if you want to create a highly popular blog then it is not okay to do this because your energy and focus divide 3-4 and you can get a blog You can not even judge with it. It would be better to be fully committed to one blog and work.
If you have confusion on which blog to work on, then take a little introspection and try to answer the following questions:
- Which blog is my genuine interest, which I can sustain for a long time?
- Which blog can I help more and more people? Or which blog really needs people?
If you create a popular blog then you can easily create more blogs and by using your popular blog’s traffic, you can also make use popular too … so before making a blog fully dedicated, make it big.
