Passionate bloggers are writing good stuff but still they are lacking to grab search engines attention. In the journey of blogging a time comes when we wonder why search engines are not grabbing my stuff? What’s wrong I am doing? What kind of post a search engine wants? there can be so many questions one can ask and there is no straight answer to that.
Only proper knowledge will bring the success.
And for blogging you need to have right skill set. Search engines are sitting for awesome content. Do you have the guts to provide them?
Details vs Precise
There was time when people were writing anything and with little backlinks they were able to achieve good ranking. Everything was working fine but all of a sudden google hammered the whole structure. Not only such crazy blogs go out of business but their supported backlink banks were marked spam too. Panda and Penguin came into picture.
- Why Penguin and Panda came?
With a dedicated task to free search engine indexes from spam. Google have done the job quite well but left blogging community in dilemma for many questions like what should be the ranking criteria from now onwards. Google is not revealing their internal algo stats, only guesses are being carried out. Some of them are on right track but some of them are like shooting bullets in dark.
- Detailed vs Precise Blog Post
Now search algorithms are gaining some mind and have started deciding like a human mind. Do you buy a book which says it will teach you blogging in 2 days but contains only 2 pages of stuff.
Some of them will buy them but what kind of blogger will they become? Will that much of knowledge be enough to become a good and successful blogger.
Since panda and penguin a general perception came into picture that from now on poorly written and tiny blog posts will be considered spam.
“For tiny content go to twitter or facebook. Blogging is not your cup of tea.”
So, a blogger must be like an awesome teacher who can explain his/her point in various ways so that their readers grasp it well. Keep the length of post enough that can explain your point. Don’t write redundant content just to make it lengthy.
Every blogger has to maintain a perfect and personalized writing style. Learn that too.
