Best Blogging Tips and Tricks for Beginners

If you’re just getting started as a blogger or recently launched a new blog and looking for some of the best blogging hacks, you should definitely check out the following section.

1. Start learning SEO

If I had to start from scratch, I’d give more importance to learning SEO. SEO (search engine optimization) is the key to building a high-traffic blog that generates both sales and traffic.

You can’t survive in the blogging world by ignoring SEO.

Whether you know it or not, Google now processes over 40,000 search queries every second on average which translates to over 3.5 billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide, according to Google search statistics.

google searches per second

So start learning it as soon as possible as it takes time and consistent practice to be able to get a hold of it.

How to implement this blogging tip? SEO is mostly about creating helpful content, building links, and optimizing your content for specific keywords. If you do those three things right, you can get #1 rankings no matter what niche you are in.

In learning SEO, the major problem is finding a trustworthy tutor or mentor. You can learn from watching videos, but the issue is trust. Nowadays, everyone claims to be an SEO Guru. My advice is to learn from those experts who have practical experience in SEO.

If you’re still unsure about where to learn, you can read the SEO starter guide written by Google SEO Experts. It’s free, comprehensive, and extremely useful for those who are new to SEO.

Here are a few more essential FREE SEO resources you can read today to improve your SEO skills as a blogger.

2. Plan Content Calendar

A content calendar is like a game plan for bloggers, helping them organize what to post and when. It’s a tool that ensures a steady flow of interesting content for readers. By using a content calendar, bloggers can stay on track, manage their time better, and keep their audience engaged with regular and diverse posts.

Without a content calendar, blogging can become a bit messy. 

It might be hard to stick to a regular posting schedule, making content seem random. This inconsistency can make it tough to keep readers interested. 

Also, without a plan, bloggers might miss out on timing their content with seasons or trends. It’s like trying to play a game without a strategy – it could be a bit confusing and less effective.

Execution of this blogging tip:

In simple terms, you can create a Content Calendar using tools like Google Sheets or Evernote. We plan and schedule content for our blog using Google Sheets. 

You just need to create a sheet and add these columns: 

  • Post Name
  • Primary Keyword
  • Post Link
  • Publish Date
  • Next Update Date.

You can follow a similar approach for a Social Media calendar. HubSpot has shared an excellent template for a Social Media calendar too.

content calendar is must

3. Do roundup posts & interviews

There are certain content types that work really well, especially for new bloggers. Two such types of content are;

  • Roundup posts and
  • Interviews

You don’t have to do the above content types only with experts or influencers in your niche (although it will be great if you can do that) as you can also create massive roundups. Or interviews with bloggers who have a decent reputation online.

The key here is to ask really great questions and make sure to promote these kinds of blog posts across social media sites as they really perform well.

You can also ask the bloggers who’re featured on your roundups or interviews to share your stuff once your content goes live. That way, you can attract more buzz in terms of social shares, traffic, links, comments and so on.

How to implement this blogging tip? Come up with the RIGHT topic for roundup posts. As a beginner blogger, your task is to come up with a topic or question that the other experts can relate to. 

Here’s an example of what a roundup post looks like;

roundup posts example

Make sure to find trending or popular topics (questions) in your industry to create roundups.

The same thing goes with interviews as well. Make a list of 10 to 12 questions that are REALLY interesting. Then, you can send those questions to the blogging experts who’re ready to do an interview with you. Ask them to share your content once it goes live.

Make sure to promote your roundup posts and interviews as much as you can. If possible, try to use Facebook ads to promote such posts as they often go viral online.

4. Fight For Initial Traffic

Getting your first 500-1000 visitors organically is crucial for your blog, especially if your primary traffic source is SEO.


If your blog starts receiving traffic in the early stages, it sends signals to Google about your blog’s engagement, bounce rate, user experience, and more. In fact, during this initial traffic stage, Google decides whether to include your blog in the top 100 search results or not.

So, what’s the issue?

Well, new bloggers often target highly competitive terms, making it difficult for them to rank.

Taking Action for this Blogging Tip:

The best strategy to bring initial traffic is to target long tail keywords or which have low competition. Finding such keywords can be done in various ways: Using SEO tools, Using Google Auto Search, and more.

Besides targeting long tail keywords, remember content quality plays an equal role.

our guide to get initial traffic using long tail keywords

5. Plan Content Hub

Creating a content hub is like having a central hub where all your related content is neatly organized. It’s important because it makes it easy for your readers to explore different topics on your blog. 

Without a content hub, your blog might feel a bit scattered, making it hard for readers to find related articles easily. 

For Example: If your niche is related with SUVs, then inside your content hub you can create blog posts like:

  • Best SUVs under $100k
  • Best SUVs under $50k
  • Best SUVs under $20k
  • And more

Do you know that not only readers but also search engines like Content hubs? When you cover various topics under the same sub-niche and interlink them, you establish authority on those topics, and consequently, Google rewards you with a boost in rankings.

I have proof.

Around a year ago, we created a coupon category (Content Hub) on our site and now we have 20+ content on our blog inside this content hub. You can see the growth in the number of organic clicks over a period of time.

content hub

How to Apply this Blogging Tip? Creating a Content Hub is a very smooth process. Here is what you have to do:

  • Identify core topics for your blog (for example: web hosting coupon category)
  • Break down core topics into relevant subtopics (for example: Hostinger coupon, Bluehost coupon) 
  • Implement internal linking between articles and hub (in this case the web hosting coupon category is the content hub)
  • Regularly update and refresh content hubs.

6. Start building “content assets”

Don’t create just another mediocre blog post. They are not going to work. If you’re building a blog from scratch and looking to make it profitable, try to create “content assets”.

Content assets are also known as “pillar contents” which act as pillars for your blog and are mostly timeless contents and are highly informative.

If you want to create high-quality content in less time, you can try Jasper AI today. It is a fantastic tool to generate better content within minutes. Read our Jasper AI 2024 review to find out how it works along with a tutorial.

Few examples of content assets:

  • The ultimate guide to [topic]
  • The A to Z guide [topic]
  • 101 ways to [topic]
  • And the list goes on

Here’s a real example of one of such content assets around best affiliate programs which compiles a list of over 100 affiliate programs that bloggers can use to earn money from affiliate marketing. It’s a gigantic 16000-word post (yes, you read it right).

content assets example

These kinds of pillar posts tend to generate more backlinks, social shares, and backlinks in the long run and they will be useful after a few years (you should make a few changes and update these posts every now and then though).

How to execute this blogging tip? The best way to come up with ideas for “content assets” is to use platforms like Quora.

Just enter any topic on Quora and you’ll find a ton of interesting questions around it.

Have a look;

quora for topics

As you can see above, once you enter a topic on Quora, it will show a list of all the relevant questions around that keyword term. You can use those questions and consider them as topics for your content assets.

7. Network with other bloggers

One of the best ways to build a better blog is to network with other bloggers, marketers, and influencers in your niche.

The best way to network with other bloggers is to comment on their blogs, link out to them, tweet their stuff regularly, email, and so on.

Also find ways to connect with other bloggers using social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, and so on. Frequently tag them by sharing their content so they will also reciprocate the same.

Actionable blogging tip for you: Make a list of 25 to 50 bloggers in your niche (who are not influencers or A list bloggers) with whom you can frequently interact. 

You can use Facebook groups (you can join our BloggersPassion VIP group) to easily find and connect with other bloggers.

bp fb group

Most influencers are busy and don’t respond to beginner bloggers. That’s why it’s better to target micro-influencers or bloggers who have a decent following. Try to tweet, link, and share their blog posts regularly as it works like a charm in the long run.

8. Cross Promotion on Social Channel

Sharing your blog posts on social media is super important. It helps you get your writing in front of more people. Platforms like Facebook and Twitter are like your own personal stage to show off what you’ve written. 

When you share your blog posts on these platforms, more people can see them, and that means more visitors to your blog. Social media is like your blog’s best friend – helping you get the word out, connect with others, and grow your blog.

Apart from this, Google considers traffic from social channels as a positive signal, ultimately giving your website a boost in search engine rankings.

But there is one problem! How could you know on which social channel your audience is likely to hangout? 

How can you implement this blogging tip effectively?

Well, before creating a social media calendar, you need to determine on which social channels your audience prefers to hang out. This information is generally based on demographics, and your niche also plays an important role.

For example, when it comes to Pinterest, more than 76% of the users are female. If your niche is related to female interests, there are higher chances that your audience prefers spending more time on Pinterest.

The simplest way to find out whether your audience is on a particular social media channel is to search for keywords related to your niche on that platform.

For instance, my niche is SEO. If I search for relevant keywords on YouTube, I find videos with a large number of views. This indicates that my audience is present on YouTube, consumes content there, and actively engages through comments.

next blog tip is to promote your blog on social channels

You can apply the same approach to other social channels as well. If your team is limited, I recommend starting by sharing content on at least one social channel.

For detailed research about the audience, you can use Social Media Analytics tools. (The best one is Buffer)

9. Understand the Audience

You know, when folks rush into starting a blog, they often miss a crucial step – understanding their audience. It’s like trying to hit a target without knowing where it is. 

Producing the wrong content leads to no results, no conversions, no engagement, and ultimately, no return on investment (ROI).

Making a practical move with this blogging tip: To know my audience, I would do this:

  • Check What Clicks: See which of your posts or content gets the most attention.
  • Social Media Buzz: Take a look at what people are chatting about or sharing in your niche on social media.
  • Spy on Others: Sneak a peek at what fellow bloggers are doing in your circle.
  • Top Social Channels: Check out what’s trending on Instagram Reels or popular on YouTube in your niche.
  • Ask Them Directly: Talk to your followers or viewers; ask them what they’d like to see.
  • Use Social Media Tools: Try out tools to find the most popular content in the last 30 days.

10. Follow Silo & Pyramid Structure

Implementing Silo & Pyramid Structure for your website architecture plays an important role in your overall search rankings.

If you have a basic knowledge of SEO, you must know that Internal links play a huge role in rankings. Now to maintain a flow of internal linking all over the blog, you must ensure that all of your blog posts follow this Silo structure.

benefits of using silos

Applying this blogging tip: Silo creation is not a rocket science, we have created a separate guide on Silo structure which helps in the execution of this tip.

11. Fight Hard Against Google Rankings Algorithms

In your new blogging journey, you may encounter a situation of sudden traffic loss in your Google Search Console.

Well, blogging isn’t the same as it used to be. Until last year, Google didn’t roll out so many algorithm updates. However, since 2023, due to AI advancements, Google’s challenges have increased.

In response, Google is making continuous changes to enhance its system, affecting even well-established websites.

Our site also faced hits from the Google Algorithm several times in 2023, but we’re fighting back and making continuous improvements.

Possible implementation for this Blogging tip: 

stay updated on google ranking changes

12. Give, give, give and ask

One of the biggest mistakes most beginner bloggers make is this: they always ask for help. They spam other people’s inboxes for links, social shares, promotions and what not?

If you’re also trying to do the same, you’re making a big mistake. No one likes promotional emails. Busy bloggers or influencers always look for ways to help others but they also receive a ton of spam emails along with promotional email pitches.

Instead of asking someone to promote your blog or link to your content, it’s a better idea to first offer them help. Here’s what works well: give, give, give, give and then ask.

That’s also what exactly the social media influencer Gary Vee suggests: give, give, give, then ask for the business!

give give give ask gary

For instance, if you want to get more social shares, start sharing others’ stuff first. Want more links? Start linking out to other bloggers first. Do it often and they will reciprocate the same sooner or later.

How to put this blogging advice into action?: Go and tweet or share this article on social media. Tag me and I’ll do my best to respond to all the people who shared it. 

You can do the same task whenever you come across a useful article on the Internet by tagging the blog authors. Do it consistently and you’ll be amazed by the response (and appreciation) you get!

13. Get a mentor

A great mentor helps their mentees to build massively popular blogs in really less time.

mentors quotes

You can build a better blog really quickly if you’ve access to the right mentor. Make sure to find a mentor in blogging who’s already making a decent income online.

One of the best ways to find mentors is to search for sites that are publishing monthly or yearly income reports.

The people who are already earning thousands of dollars from blogging know how to build money-making blogs.

There are a ton of bloggers who might not be offering “mentoring” services but you can always find money-making bloggers who you can help (by offering them free services like content writing, optimizing their posts, creating images for their posts etc).

In return, you can ask them to build a high-traffic blog. It’s a win/win approach that works like a charm in almost any industry.

How to apply this blogging tip? Bill Gates had a mentor. Gary Vee had a mentor. Almost every successful person in the world had access to at least one mentor. 

If you want to speed up your blogging success, find someone who’s already making a living from blogging. 

You can also find a list of top bloggers here. Go read their blogs. Find ways to help them first. Then, ask them if they’re interested in teaching you.

If possible, find a blogger who’s offering 1:1 consulting services to help beginners. Invest in those services to speed up your blogging success.

If you’re unable to find a mentor, there’s always the option of taking blogging courses to improve your skills

14. Read more books

Read more books. Read at least one book a month. We suggest you read books on the following topics.

  • Psychology
  • Business
  • Marketing
  • The art of selling etc
best books for bloggers

Actionable blogging tip for you: Here’s a list of five amazing books for bloggers that help you take your skills to the next level. Try to read all of them or at least listen to their audiobooks.

  2. Zero to One Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel

15. Learn Google Search Console & Analytics

Learning both free tools from Google will help you a lot in the longer run of your Blogging career. There are dozens of YouTube tutorials available for mastering both. Watching them in your free time would be great.

16. Be consistent

“When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren’t the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.” – Arsene Wenger

If you look at any successful blogger who’s making a ton of money, you’ll notice one thing: they are consistent. They have been blogging for years. That’s why they are able to build money-making blogs.

consistency is key

Did you know why the majority of the people never make any money or drive more traffic to their blogs? It’s mostly because of one reason: they are not consistent.

What’s the use of publishing blog posts once a day if you’re not going to be consistent after 3 months? You can’t build a better blog without being consistent. It’s as simple as that.

Executing this blogging tip successfully: Make sure to install a free plugin called the Editorial Calendar. You can use this plugin to schedule your posts or drafts in advance so you can be more consistent with your blog posting schedule.

This plugin gives you an overview of your blog and when each post will be published. You can also easily drag and drop everything to change your posts (or drafts) in order to manage your blog.

So make sure to create a consistent blog posting schedule, come up with dozens of blog post ideas and write posts in advance so you can schedule them later (when you don’t feel like writing).

Blogging Tips and Tricks for Seasoned Bloggers

If you’re blogging for some time and already bringing some traffic and sales to your sites, here are the top tips that can be useful for seasoned bloggers like you.

17. Review, Restart and Grow

This process is very crucial and you have to perform every 3-6 months in your blogging journey. 

It’s just a process to analyze:

  • What experiments have worked?
  • What experiments have failed?
  • What type of content have hit?
  • What type of content has received the most engagement?
  • What type of products have converted most?
  • Which writers have performed best?
  • More

This simple review helps you refine and enhance your blogging strategy over time.

18. Be transparent

The “Fake it until you make it” concept only works in very few fields. Definitely, it won’t work online especially if you’re trying to build a profitable blog.

Being transparent and honest is the only way to succeed online. Just look at Pat Flynn’s income reports. He shares everything with transparency. Don’t fake it.

Don’t show false promises or false reports (or screenshots) just to be cool. People will find it sooner or later.

Making use of this blogging tip effectively: Create an about page and tell your story. Tell your audience why you got into blogging along with your story and experiences. 

You can read our about page to get an idea about how to create a compelling about us page.

19. Spy on your competitors

Keeping an eye on your competitor websites can give you a ton of ideas to increase your search traffic, come up with great post ideas, increase your sales and conversions and so on.

If you’re a seasoned blogger, you might already know who are your competitors and what topics they mostly cover on their sites. Once you have a list of your competitor sites, start using competitor research tools like Semrush or SpyFu to deeply explore their sites.

As these tools give you a ton of useful information around;

  • What keywords they are using to generate more search traffic
  • What blog posts are generating more backlinks
  • What pages are bringing the most sales
  • And so on

Competitor research gives you an idea about what’s working well and what’s not for your competitors so you can tweak your content strategy accordingly.

Steps to execute this effective blogging tip: If you want to succeed in blogging, you should do competitor analysis to spy on your competitor’s websites and build a solid marketing strategy.

So go ahead and try any of the following competitor research tools TODAY to analyze your competitors in detail.

  • Semrush
  • Ubersuggest
  • Ahrefs
spy on competitors

Make sure to find the following things while analyzing your competitor’s websites.

  • Their top-performing pages include keywords
  • Their backlink sources
  • Their paid ads (if any)

20. Don’t start too many blogs

Gone are the days when you can launch 100 blogs, create content, and make more money. It’s not going to work that way in 2024 and beyond.

focus on one

One of the biggest mistakes most seasoned bloggers make is: that they launch too many blogs once their primary blog starts generating money.

It’s a big mistake. Unless and until your primary blog is making decent money on “autopilot” (that is, you should be able to make money without spending too much time), you shouldn’t think about starting another blog.

Starting multiple blogs can hurt you in the long run. You need to focus on a lot of things like content creation, keyword research, backlinks, email list, monetization strategy, SEO, and so on and all these tasks consume a ton of time.

Instead of launching multiple blogs, it’s a smart idea to focus on building ONE authority site as authority sites give you maximum results in the long run.

How to use this blogging tip? If you already have started another blog, ignore it. Stop everything you’re planning to do and focus ONLY on your primary blog.

So your task now is to define ONE MAJOR goal for your primary blog. 

If it’s already making a decent income every month (let’s say $1000 per month), set bigger goals (such as $2000 to $3000 per month). Don’t focus on any other blog until you reach that goal.

If your primary blog is getting decent traffic (let’s say 500 visitors a day), set a new goal of reaching 1000 visitors a day. 

The key here is to focus on your existing primary blog and achieve bigger results instead of launching another blog.

21. Invest in the premium tools

If you’re a seasoned blogger, you might be already making some money from your blogs. This is the right time, you need to start investing money and more time to take your blog to the next level.

For example, if you’re using cheaper or free hosting, you might want to migrate to a better, more secure, and faster hosting choice like WPX hosting.

i am using wpx hosting

If you’re using a free theme for your site, you can consider getting a premium WordPress theme that is mobile responsive and SEO friendly.

If you’re using free SEO tools, you can give try premium tools like Semrush, Ahrefs, etc as they can help you with almost any SEO-related task ranging from keyword research to competitor analysis to site audits.

How to apply this Blogging tip? Blogging is also a business. You need to invest money if you want to make profits.

So your task is to invest in any of the following blogging tools.

  • WP Rocket (to speed up your page loading times)
  • Elementor Pro (to customize your site however you want)
  • Semrush (to take your blog’s traffic and revenue to the next level)
  • Rank Math (to optimize your posts for better rankings)
  • ConvertKit (to build and grow your email list)

You can also check out these best premium SEO tools recommended by experts if you want to increase your search traffic.

22. Track your keyword rankings

By now as a seasoned blogger, you might have faced the ugly Google animal updates like Panda, Penguin etc. One of the best ways to know and analyze your website’s traffic spikes is to track your keyword rankings.

Are you already tracking your keyword positions on Google? If not yet, you should do that as soon as possible. Without tracking your keyword rankings, it’s difficult to increase your search traffic.

Only by keyword tracking, you will be able to find out which keyword positions are going up and which are going down.

How to put this blogging advice to work? You can use premium tools like the Semrush position tracking tool or a free tool like Google Keyword Rank tracker from Small SEO Tools to find your current keyword positions on Google.

Here’s what it looks like on Small SEO Tools;

keyword tracking

As you can see above, we’re currently ranking #1 for the keyword “best Indian blogs” on Google.

Make a list of all the top-ranking keywords of your website. Also, find out which keywords are ranking on pages 2 and 3. You can easily find such keywords using the Semrush tool.

Once you have that list, you can start working on those keywords to improve their rankings by updating with new content, optimizing for more keywords, adding images, building links, etc.

23. Take your email list to the next level

Did you know that email list gives you an ROI of over $40 for every dollar you spend?

According to Salesforce, email marketing has an average ROI of 3800% That’s a massive number, right?

Not just that, 76% of marketers see active growth in their number of email subscribers, and 77% of ROI comes from segmented, targeted, and triggered email campaigns.

email marketing

So if you’re already blogging for a while but not building or growing your email list, this is the right time to start doing it as it generates great results in the long run.

Executing this blogging tip? If you’re NOT building an email list already (or having a dead email list), start a new one today. 

You can even go for free services like Mailchimp. Even better, you can sign up for the free plan from ConvertKit which allows you to build up to 1000 subscribers for free.

Create a freebie such as an eBook or turn your popular posts into an eBook and offer it as an incentive to collect emails.

24. Learn how to sell like a pro

If you want to become a professional blogger or looking for ways to make thousands of dollars from blogging, you need one important skill which is the art of selling.

selling quotes

You should learn how to sell without sounding like a sales guy. Just check out other experts like Neil Patel, Pat Flynn etc are selling and making money from their sites and you’ll learn a lot of things.

You can also read sales books, listen to podcasts, and watch TED talks to learn how you can find the emotional triggers in your audience and sell anything to them like a pro.

Getting hands on this blogging tip: The best way to sell like a pro online is to first define your buyer persona.

Here are some action elements for you that help you easily define your buyer persona.

  • Find out your target audience names and emails (the best way to do that is to use your email list or build a list if you don’t have one)
  • Find out their age and location (you can run contests or quizzes to find that information)
  • Find your target audience wants and needs (you can ask questions using your email list) 
  • Analyze your competitors audience in the similar niche

25. Try special days to increase your affiliate sales

If you’re a blogger, there are high chances of selling affiliate products from your blog.

Affiliate marketing is definitely one of the best ways to earn passive income from websites. There are a ton of best affiliate programs out there that give you hefty commissions.

That said, there are special days and events where you can triple your affiliate sales. During special days like Black Friday, Cyber Monday etc the majority of the companies offer up to 90% discounts which you can use to increase your affiliate sales.

black friday sales

So if you’re already not promoting this kind of deals, you should focus on promoting them as they really give you a lot of sales (as most of these deals are time-sensitive and provide a sense of urgency to the users).

Implementing this blogging tip: Every year, Black Friday week comes in the month of November. So make sure to create a plan for the Black Friday deals as soon as possible (if possible, this weekend!).

Try to find out the top 3 to 5 affiliate products you want to promote during the Black Friday event this year and come up with post ideas around those products. 

Create your posts in advance, do keyword research, write great content, optimize well and start building links.

26. Perform site audits often

There are so many seasoned bloggers struggling with one major thing: they post content regularly but they often struggle to get more traffic from search engines like Google.

The major reason could be your site might have technical or SEO-related issues. Here’s where performing site audits help you a lot to discover what all the issues your site has.

You can find and fix most of the things like broken links, sitemap, crawling issues, duplicate content, missing alt tags, lengthy meta description issues and so on.

Actionable blogging tip for you: Go grab a 14-day free trial of Semrush today to perform an in-depth audit of your website.

Once you perform the site audit using Semrush, you’ll get a list of all the issues and errors your website has. Make sure to fix those errors and issues to improve your website’s overall SEO.

If you’re curious, here’s what the site audit feature looks like;

semrush new site audit

As you can see above, we currently have only one error and the overall site health is really great (which is 94 out of 100) for BloggersPassion. 

Make sure to perform site audits regularly (at least once a month) to improve your site’s SEO.

27. Move to a faster web hosting service

Whether you know it or not, site speed is a ranking factor which means, your search rankings will depend on your site loading times and performance.

Your web hosting plays a key role in your website speed.

The faster your web host, the quicker your site loads. It’s as simple as that. Make sure to invest in a faster web hosting choice that includes the following features;

  • SSL certificates (which turn your HTTP version site into HTTPS secured version)
  • SSD storage (the hosting sites which are using SSD storage devices load and perform way better when compared to those sites which are using traditional storage)
  • Multiple server locations (so that you can pick a server location to host your sites that are closer to you)

How to put this blogging tip into practice? As you grow your blog, you should focus more on generating traffic and sales (and less on website security issues, speed, etc). That’s why investing in a faster web host like WPX is a smart idea!

wpx hosting new

If you’re an intermediate blogger who’s already making at least $500 to $1000+ per month from blogging, it’s time to invest in faster web hosting.

We HIGHLY recommend you to check out WPX Hosting and their pricing plans start just around $20 per month. Their hosting is worth every single penny.

28. More Focus on Old Published Content

When your blog reaches a certain level, let’s say you’ve published more than 100-200 pieces of content, the biggest challenge is to keep them updated. 

Bloggers often think that producing more and more content will increase their site traffic. But the opposite is true. 

If you don’t regularly update your existing posts, they may become stale over time, leading to freshness issues and a decline in search rankings.

How to Implement this blogging tip? Firstly, create an extra sheet in your content calendar to track the schedule for updating existing posts. 

Then, analyze how frequently your competitors update their posts and check their last modified dates for each topic’s primary keyword. 

Based on this information, create a schedule for updating each blog post. The more you repeat this process, the easier it becomes to understand how often a particular post needs updating.

Pro Blogging Tips for Advanced Bloggers

Here are my top tips for advanced bloggers who are already generating enough traffic and sales through their sites.

29. Focus on conversions, not traffic

If you’re an advanced blogger, by now, you should have known that “conversions are more important than page views”. Yes, your website traffic matters a lot but if you’re solely focusing on increasing traffic and ignoring conversions, you’re making a mistake.

This is the time when you need to put your efforts into increasing your website conversions.

Get access to tools like Semrush, Crazy Egg etc which you can use to find money-making keywords, track your audience behavior and so on to increase your overall website conversion rates.

Make sure to focus on optimizing your site for better performance and speed.


As you can see above, a faster site can lead to lower bounce rates which ultimately results in higher conversions.

Execution of this blogging tip: The best way to improve your website conversions to analyze your audience behaviour. 

You can use a handy tool like Crazy Egg (we also use the same) to get actionable insights into your visitor data.

Make sure to pick a couple of high-traffic posts on your website (start with one popular post) and run an A/B test with the Crazy Egg tool.

Here’s one of our A/B tests on Crazy Egg looks like;

crazyegg ab test

As you can see above, we ran an A/B test for one of our posts and variant 1 gets a HUGE improvement of over 116%. 

Similarly, you can also pick your high-traffic blog post to run an A/B test to see which variant works best for you. You can customize the button colors, add new headlines, change your call to action, etc for best results.

Quick note: If you want to learn how to create A/B tests from scratch using the Crazy Egg tool, you can watch this helpful video.

30. Automate everything

Once you’ve built a proper sales funnel from your website, you’ll be spending less time on it. This is the right time to automate almost everything.

automate everything

Here are a few things you can automate (so you can save more time and efforts which you can use to build more money-making sites or launch other profitable online ventures).

  • Content creation
  • SEO (including keyword research, guest posts, link building and so on)
  • Email marketing (creating newsletters, taking care of email sequences etc)
  • Affiliate marketing (preparing for special days such as Black Friday well in advance)
  • And the list goes on

Although it costs you some money to automate the above things as you need to outsource the tasks (but it’s worth every single penny you pay for). Moreover, you’ll be saving a lot of time as well.

Taking Action on this Blogging Tip: If your blog is already making profits and you don’t have a team yet, find at least one person who can help you with content creation, email list building, social media management, etc.

It’s better to find a blogger who already has experience with content creation, email marketing, etc so you don’t have to train them. 

Make sure to build a team so you can outsource everything and you can focus more on growing your traffic and profits.

Trust me, you need a team to grow your blog. Otherwise, it’s impossible for you to take your blog earnings and traffic to the next level. 

You can also check out platforms like Problogger Job board, Upwork, etc to find quality writers who can take care of your content writing part (or SEO-related tasks).

31. Try new things

If you’re an advanced blogger who’s already making a living from blogging and building websites for years, this is the right time to try new things.

Here are a few things you can consider trying in 2024 if you’re already not doing them yet.

  • Podcasts
  • Seminars
  • YouTube marketing
  • Trying a new monetization strategy

Actionable blogging tip for you: If you’re ONLY creating articles on your blog and have NOT yet started a YouTube channel, this is the RIGHT time as everyone started watching videos (over text).

If your target audience is mostly US or UK-based, you can even plan to start a podcast as you can attract more people if you’ve solid content. Similarly, try to do at least one NEW thing that you have NEVER done before.

Here are a few things you can consider;

  • Starting a YouTube channel
  • Starting a podcast
  • Writing your book (or an eBook)
  • Creating your first online course 
  • Try a new income source to diversify your blog’s income

32. Invest more in what’s ALREADY working

If something is working well for you and generating money and sales, you should be investing even more money and time into it.

There’s no point in spending more money on completely irrelevant things and it makes a lot of sense to put more money on things that are already working great for you and your business.

For instance, spending money on content marketing is generating great results for us so we’re increasing the investment every passing year (with an increase in our overall blog’s revenue).

That’s what you should also do if you’re already making decent money as a professional blogger. Find what’s working well for you, try to automate the process, leverage people and your time.

Actionable blogging tip for you: Whether you know it or not, roughly 80% of consequences come from 20% of the causes (according to Pareto 80/20 rule).

80 20 rule

So make sure to find your #1 source that’s generating more income for you. 

For example, we mostly generate income from affiliate marketing (particularly from the Semrush affiliate program, as we made more than $394,000 from it).

So, it’s always a good idea to create new contents around such things so you can attract even more income. 

Similarly, if you’re already making money selling your own products or courses, find out which ONE product is giving you the most profits. 

Then, find ways to generate more profits from that product. You can try various things like;

  • Turing that product into a bundle
  • Adding additional resources such as videos, checklists, etc to make the product 10x valuable and the list goes on

Are you getting it? The key here is to focus your efforts on what’s already working well for you.

33. Publish a book

There are so many expert bloggers and influencers like Pat Flynn, Neil Patel, etc who have published their own books.

Do you know why? They know publishing a book as a blogger or marketer can build momentum and boost their personal brand to a great extent.

Publishing a book has its own benefits including;

  • Self-promotion
  • Personal branding
  • Helping newbies about the things you’re already good at
  • It’s an asset
  • Brings you high-quality leads and attracts new potential customers
  • And the list goes on

If you’re a professional or full-time blogger, you might already have all the resources you need including time, money, access to writers and so on to self publish a book. So why not use your existing resources to get more exposure?

Actionable blogging tip for you: If you haven’t already published a book (or an eBook) on your blog yet, give it a top priority. 

You can use that book to grow your email list, build your online reputation or even make money selling it (an additional income source is always good, right?).

Here’s a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about blogging.

What is blogging?

Blogging is a way of sharing your thoughts with the world. Thoughts could be related to your personal life or any other topic (health, wealth, parenting, etc.). But unlike traditional blogging, now blogging has turned into a proven business model.

Is it possible to start a blog for free?

You can start a free blog on free blogging platforms like Blogger, WordPress.com, etc.

But if you want to start a blog as a real business I highly recommend you choose a self-hosted WordPress platform as it will give you full control over your site and you can monetize it in better ways.

How to start a self-hosted blog?

You can start a WordPress self-hosted blog by simply registering a domain name and getting a web host within an hour.

Is blogging dead?

Absolutely, not. In fact, due to the pandemic COVID 19, blogging and digital marketing is thriving as everyone started planning to get their business online. 
However, you can’t expect great results by creating mediocre content. You need to create high-quality content, find better keywords, and build relevant links to succeed in blogging.

How bloggers do actually make money?

There are many ways to make money from blogging. Here are some of the most common ways most bloggers make money.
– Selling affiliate products
– Placing ads on their website (such as Google AdSense ads)
– Sponsorships
– Paid collaborations with other brands 
– Paid reviews
– Selling their own products or online courses
– Offering services such as writing, SEO, web design, etc

Is Blogger good for beginners?

Yes, Blogger is a great platform for beginners. But the self-hosted WordPress platform is EVEN better. WordPress is easy to set up, gives you full control, is SEO-friendly, and also you’ll get access to thousands of plugins and themes.
You can read our simple tutorial on how to start a blog to create your own blog on WordPress. You can also check out these free blogging sites if you want to create a free blog.

Why do most blogs fail?

One of the reasons why bloggers fail is that they ALWAYS look for quick results. They want to make money within a few weeks after setting up their blog. Just like any other business, blogging also needs investment and proper planning to make profits.

Give it some time, produce high-quality content, generate targeted visitors to your site, and use the right monetization strategy to build a successful blog that makes money. 

You can read our how to make money blogging guide to learn more about making profits from blogging.

Should I start a blog or not in 2024?

  1. Amazing blogging tips Sir. Blogging is indeed a very good career choice I believe. Dedication, consistency and hard-work are the most important factors to become a successful blogger.

  2. A lot of burning questions that new bloggers like me have are covered comprehensively in this post.
    One of my thoughts nows days is that I am making money from my main blog. What if Google change its algo and traffic drops overnight as I have read at so many places.
    So I was planning to create another blog since it will be easier as now I know much better about keyword research and content creation than I knew 2 years before.
    But keeping all that in mind I 100% agree with your point that rather than diverting my energy on 2nd blog, same amount of energy will give more rewards on my first blog.
    Do you have same kind of thoughts, or have you planned or created others ways of revenue as a safeguard?

    • I would suggest you keep working your first blog by the time it becomes a success. And you can think of working on second blog only if you can give time to second blog without effecting the first blog.

  3. Hey Anil,

    A detailed guide on blogging tips. All the tips were gem but I really liked how you have added that in the beginning you should focus on a single blog.

    First you should make it money making and then jump on to another on.

    I had done making a lot of blogs and then closing it because I can’t focus on any one blog.

    And that is the reason why I haven’t still got the level of success in blogging that I have dreamt of.

    Thanks sir for sharing this kind of great blog post with us

    Sir, I want to ask which FAQ plugin do you use on your website.

    It actually looks very nice


  4. I love to read all blogging posts such a piece of gorgeous information you have been mentioned in this blog, I saw in you on the quora platform then after that I searched on google, and finally, I find out a great informative blog.

    Thank you so much

  5. Sir, I recently heard about Web2.0 linking strategy, do suggest the same to do like have multiple relevant blogs and updating posts on them ?

    • That should work. idea is to update them with high quality content, promote those blogs and build some audience on them to get maximum benefit from them.

  6. You have provided some great tips, and this may be one of the best articles on the blog. I was wondering why I had so many blogs, and now I’m thinking about eliminating them. I’m also thinking about switching my hosting and reading all the books as well as you have suggested.

  7. Hi Anil Sir,
    It is really inspiring reading your blogging journey. I just started with it on blogspot.com. I gained knowledge from reading your post. I am still a novice. Would like to get such inspirations from leading bloggers like you. Getting into writing such blogs will take time for me. But will try my level best to apply your tips and tricks in my blogging. At times it is really difficult to understand and do things in one go. But surely will keep working hard to achieve. A positive attitude always works.

  8. Hi Anil,

    Well first of all I would like to thank you for sharing your successfully 15 years blogging secrets. What i liked the most in this article is about “Smallseotools” & “Crazyegg” which is really good enough to give tough competition to other paid tools as discussed in your post. I also agrees with you on Pareto 80/20 rule. Really this rule comes to true most of time while I do analysis of my posts and their promotional activities on various Social media platform.


  9. Excellent tips.
    I have learned a lot from bloggers passion and this one of the best articles on this blog.
    I was doing the mistake of creating many blogs and now I think to rectify it.
    Another thing is to change my hosting, and I will try to read all the books as stated by you.

  10. Hi Anil,

    This post is so incredibly good.

    I learned a bunch of similar lessons during my 13 year blogging career. Giving freely vibes deeply with me because pros are generous servants, first and foremost. From there, all of this free giving increases skills, exposure and credibility. Credible, skilled bloggers seen in many spots go pro because people buy their stuff and also hire these bloggers.

    Being generous and patient are keys because most bloggers, in their fear and panic, are stingy and impatient. Or perhaps the bloggers seem to be patient but blog from stingy energies. Other bloggers are generous as can be but incredibly impatient. The challenge is to be generous for a long time.

    I am learning new things, per one of your tips bro. Optimizing my blog posts for SEO since January of 2021 has opened my eyes because I ranked most of these new posts on page 1 for a little bit, at least. But even ones that did not rank – written with competitive keywords – still drew more organic traffic through my list and social media, all because my readers and new readers enjoyed the 2,000 plus word, detailed offerings.

    Being a pro blogger is not as hard as people think but the journey feels uncomfortable sometimes. Most bloggers bail at the first sign of discomfort, struggle, fail and blogging seems hard for them for many years. A select few bloggers do not panic and bail, hugging uncomfortable fears, and simply keep blogging for the long haul until going pro. Everything depends on your mindset because your mindset determines whether you do the right blogging things for a long time.

    Smashing guide Anil. I retweeted and also shared on my Facebook.


    • Your post is really helpful for starter bloggers who have just started blogging passionate to nurture the audience and also making money passively.

      It really helps me to analyse all drawback that results to low traffic on my blog . These useful tips really helps me to figure out new strategies to grow and nurture my audience.

      I am learning and improving SEO skills. Can you guide me on how to make strong network connections?
