A myth is known as a widely held but false belief or an idea. In the world of blogging, there are many blogging myths. Here I am going to reveal some myths!
8 Myths About Blogging You Should Stop Believing Now!


  1. Myth #1 If You Build It Reader Will Come
There is a myth that they will come if you build it. No, it’s not true, they won’t because it’s only a Building minor blogging part. Thousands or millions of blogs are published every day and if you want to get your work seen then the right way is to develop a real strategy to make your content get seen.

  1. Myth #2 300-700 per Posts Are Best
There is a myth that has grown too much that a blog containing 300-700 is the best. No, it’s not true because the audience wants to see helpful and interesting content, they don’t consider a number of words or they don’t have any issues with that. Their main focus is on the quality of material written on the blog.

  1. Myth #3 Blogging - All about Writing
It can be a yes but a no too. Blogging is actually not about writing. It is a way you provide interesting material which catches eyes of the audience. So it’s just not about writing. It’s about content that is helpful, entertaining and according to recent issues.

  1. Myth #4 Bloggers try to avoid Sharing Blogs of There Competitor’s
It’s usual and natural to feel unsecured by someone who has a better blog than you or a  big audience than you but it can be helpful if you share the blog with your competitor's posts .it shows your followers that you want to help them, even if it’s going on someone else blog than yours.

  1. Myth #5 If Blogger Get One Influencer to Share My Post I’ll Be Golden
Many bloggers think that It is great when your posts go famous or someone with millions of followers uses them. It helps in boosting traffic but keep in mind that this kind of traffic is for short time period only because if your blog is not designed attractively so it is too hard for the reader to search the answers relating to his question.

  1. Myth #6 Blog Daily
Many people think that by increasing there a number of posts can make there blog successful but it’s a wring thinking. The blogs with most followers are the one who has material based on extraordinary skills and valuable content, great research and analysis. So do not work to increase to blog post count. Try to produce valuable content. 

  1. Myth #7 Having Stylish Fonts Is More Important Than Quality of Material
Yes, this true that colours and style catch the eye but do remember in blogging your readers are looking for content with quality so be sure your content provide easily readable and full of quality content. Do remember in blogging appearance is secondary. In the busy lives of people, they don’t want to spend extra time in understanding the font.

  1. Myth#8 Blogging Is an Easy Way to Earn Cash
Well, nowadays money is everything. Lots of bloggers start blogging with a thought that it is an easy way to earn cash but it is not true it is not an easy way. Even people start posting, they see that there is no income coming so they quit. An important thing to keep in mind is It isn’t going to be easy without hard work and requires a lot of dedication.

How to Reduce Bounce Rate on Your Blog within 15 Days

author-pic About Author
Awogor Matthew is an internet marketer, a freelancer and a problogger who sees the need of helping people discover their online career on making money online. He owns and manage the award winning blog @ reviewnetgato.com that teaches everything about affiliate marketing and how to make money online.







Blog bounce rate reduces your blog trust to search engines like Google and Bing. The number of times a visitor spend on a blog after Surfing through search engines is used to determine how relevant a particular content is on a keywords.

Bounce rate chat

This is very common to understand if you learn how to keep your visitors for long on your blog especially those entering through the windows (search engines).

This metrics is simple to understand.
Let's take for instance; an entrepreneur searched for a keywords "seoclerks affiliate program" and on the first page the searcher found 10 top most relevant and informative content with the keyword, if the visitor click on any page search engine takes into account the page the searcher actually stayed long and which did he actually read to the end by mouse trigger.
The annoying part!


If the searcher visit a page and could not find relevant information about what he/she is searching for, they quickly go back to click on another page if it could answer their questions better.

At this point search engines may think your page wasn't relevant enough for that keyword and the next time a searcher search for this keyword, you may notice that your search position to that keyword have changed to either second or third page.

Another most annoying part
Have you wondered why you actually know you rank well on a particular keywords and yet you don't get clicks from search engines? I will surprise you now! ๐Ÿ˜‚ and I will try to be very specific with this and straight to the point without much of your time.

Search engines value click through ratio which tells them how important your content headline is.

If for instance I searched for seoclerks affiliate program and on the first page I saw an headline "Seoclerks affiliate program: How I made $2k" and another content said "How to make money with seoclerks affiliate program"

You see that this two are very tempting to click. But I may decide to go for the one that has a personal experience first and on this keyword, he would be happy having more clicks than anyone else because he actually talked about personal experience with seoclerks affiliate program.



Funniest but interesting part•
People want to hear what you actually experienced in a particular service so they don't make the same mistakes you made. So they will pay more attention reading your experience than a mere article from a writer. I hope Now you understand.


How to keep visitors on your page for more than 10 minutes to reduce blog bounce rate

  • Draft catching heading but don't spam: a lots of people don't know what spamming is all about. If you understand the reputation you are building online with your brand, you don't need to mislead your audience with wrong headlines because you want them to click your pages. But give headlines related to your contents and very informative.
  • Squeeze important keywords you intend to rank for in first paragraph of your copy to gain clicks: this is important to search engines. I advice people's not to always set pages meta description. Do you know why? If you should do that you will lost potentials of gaining clicks if the search keyword do not appear on the meta description of your page. By default, Google or other search engines takes any part that best described the searched keyword.
  • Write long articles: an article that a reader can used just 59 seconds to read may tend to have more visit bit will increase your bounce rate. I keep my articles on a minimum of 1.5k words if not I should used 2k and above. Don't just write but be as detailed as possible.
  • Use Call to Actions or authority words: don't be too serious with your articles, at a point make the reader feel there's still best thing to read hereafter. Words like Now, Today, Quickest, Simple and Free could convert more on SERPs.
  • Don't just reveal every information at ones: when writing an article it's advised you reveal most powerful clue to what you are going to be discussing from first, second and third page so you will keep the reader on suspense to expect something more; by doing this, the reader will want to read every part of the post till the end. This will make them spend more time on your blog.
  • Give life to old articles and interlinked your content to attract more stays: a lots of people just write content, I call it plain contents. Search engines value pages interlinking. Look for potential phrases words to fix your links. No how, you should use your regular keywords which you could have similar articles on then hit up the interlinking. By so doing, a visitor might likely want to see what is in that link and may end up going from one page to another if you have a proper interlinking.
  • Make use of your header tags properly (h1, h2, h3, h4 etc): if I as a reader visit a page, what I really look for is the real information about what I want. I quickly scan through all header tags to see the one that speaks sense about what am looking for and right there do I spend more time. So properly arrange your header tags to let the visitor know what a particular section is going to be discussed on.
  • Go for Contest: many bloggers and internet marketers don't know the value of contest. It might be funny to note that people want to know what you do and how professional you go about it before they could contest for you and will want to stay longer on your pages to reduce blog bounce rate.
  • Offer Freebies: if you offer freebies to your visitors, after reading your content they will likely want to download the freebies like e-books, infographics etc.
  • Enable commenting on your blog: fellow bloggers will like to comment on your blog and you know what? They will want to read every single part of the article so to have a clear knowledge of what you are talking about before commenting so their comments don't look spamming.

Reasons Why Traffic So Hard To Get

There is a small secret to it, or well, not a secret but a method I discovered when I first got into blogging for income.

Stop thinking about traffic, income and all of that. Blog about something YOU like and that you KNOW something about. How does this work?
Image

Simple, I used to run an old blog in the gaming niche, I wrote maybe ten posts and after a month, no results. I kinda gave up. Then suddenly one day, I got a traffic report that I had over a thousand daily visitors. I was quite shocked as the only SEO I actually did was using my keywords in the posts.
What made the blog fairly popular in that specific niche was simply that I was human. I didn't act like someone who wanted to make a quick dime. People liked my content and how I interacted with the readers.

While remembering SEO and all related to it, it's still important to write naturally, when it comes to blogs that is. Look at the biggest blogs out there, they write about something they love and get famous for it because of it.

And yes, writing more posts increases your traffic obviously, however make sure to write good. But remember, blogs are blogs, not ecommerce sites, not company sites but blogs.

Note: My blog also offered free products in the niche so that also helped a great deal to get traffic. Also, the niche wasn't saturated, I only had about thirty competing sites, so beating them wasn't hard when I was the only passionate and active person in the niche.

Second note: I just realized that I made a huge post when I could have summarized it all..



3 tips that I have found critical to success:


  1. Headings with questions rather than answers stimulate interest if your audience truly relates. For example, "Are you having a problem losing weight?" rather than, "Weight loss solutions". Then, once they are stimulated to read, connect in to the question in your header. For example, "If you're having a problem losing weight, you're probably feeling discouraged. I know I was, but what I found was......"
  2. Write for your audience not for yourself. Have you got a specific target audience with a real need? Because you need to be writing for them rather than yourself.
  3. Make your content viral by making it entertaining or enlightening and then syndicating it on social media sites.



There's no guarantees in the blogging world, but I hope you find these tips helpful and have great success in the future.
