    Alex, your tips are nice but I differ on point two that's "Make posts web friendly". I think you blog posts must be user friendly instead of web. Search engines quality contents that is written for human.

    A agree that the posts should be user friendly - your blog will be far more popular if people are actually interested in it an read it regularly.

    Actually yes, I have to agree with previous comments, making posts web friendly isn't going to get you anywhere. After all, your're posting stuff that you want to find real human audience for, right?

    A few more,
    1). Write guest posts
    2). Made slides and upload it to sites like slideshare with a link of your site in the bio.
    3). Take part in blogs and commence conversations on the social media.

    I would like to add some basic tips :

    Use a effective title
    Start with simple introduction
    Provide useful content
    Optimize it for visibility
    Make it easy to read
    End with a strong conclusion

    I would also say guest posting is a great idea. Building a blogging community is in general a good thing. Make connections and post on their blogs and have them post on yours. And give some link power to their blogs as well by linking to them and having them link to you.

    All of the points above about writing good quality content that people actually want to read and creating a user-friendly blog are also all on-point.

    I would also say promote your blog on social media, but this has to be done correctly. You can't just post "published a new blog post, check it out" across as many platforms as possible. That is not effective.

    Here is a nice little rundown from Hootsuite on how to do this and how the method should change with each social medium.

    Great tips. I cal also add that the blog titles must be catchy and interesting. Also the content must be relevant to the website's field and of course, to be amusing and useful.
     
    Linda Harper and FrenchPress like this.

    Yes, I absolutely agree. The title is the first thing anyone sees and they determine from that if they want to read the rest of it. And yes, absolutely, it needs to be relevant content as well.
