How to Get Your Blog Noticed In 2018 And Beyond?

Getting your blog noticed in the crowded niche is the primary key to success. If you are not focusing on creating a unique brand for your own blog, it will go nowhere.

“If you build it, they will come” is the worst advice given by many people. If you are blindly following it without considering your audience, your blog will eventually die without capturing even a single sale.

You should compile the phrase into “if you build it, they won’t come – you have to work very hard to build audience”.

Most beginners think that they can make money once they get good amount of traffic. To get more traffic, they write posts day in and day out. And they hope for their traffic stats to blow but it will never happen. That’s the reason why most blogs fail to make money online.

If you want to avoid that trap, think about different ways to get your blog noticed in 2018. This detailed guide is exclusively for you to help you do that. Let’s get into the details.

Find your threshold

Most people say daily posting sucks. Some people say, you should post daily to grow larger audience. What do you think is the real secret behind building a massive readership?

It’s finding your threshold. Few people may create 1 amazing post each and every day while others can create just 2 posts every week. There’s nothing wrong in choosing the perfect blog post frequency for your blog to make it a success. Sometimes, it takes time to understand your own threshold. So figure out, test and analyze how it works to build your readership.

Your writing style is what makes you unique

Few people get quickly noticed online because of their writing tone. They don’t write posts in a generic tone. They differentiate themselves from the crowd by writing in a friendly or witty tone.

So if you want to get your blog easily noticed in 2018, write in a unique style. Figure out your own writing voice and capture readers’ attention. Here are few tips that will help you hone your writing skills.

Learn to write every day: It doesn’t matter if you are too busy or already writing well, you have to make it a habit of writing daily. Then and only then you will be able to create content that gets read.

Keep your paragraphs short: Online reading is different when compared to offline. If you use long paragraphs in your posts, online people will find it hard to digest your stuff. So make sure to break them down to 3 to 5 lines.

Read other bloggers posts: One of the easiest ways to improve your writing is to read other bloggers posts. Read other writers posts, read popular people’s blog posts and analyze how they are writing and grabbing their audience attention.

Leverage others traffic

Blogging is NOT a solo thing. You can’t succeed in online if you don’t get the help from others. You have to think win/win approach, help others first then seek help.

If you want to increase your traffic and get your blog noticed in 2018, leverage others bloggers traffic. How can you do that? Here are 3 simple yet evergreen ways to do that.

Guest posting: Guest blogging is not dead really. But you have to treat guest posting as a way of building relationships, not backlinks. Then you will get all you want, traffic, subscribers, money and even links. So focus on writing great posts for others, gain confidence, build relationships and drive traffic from their blogs.

Link dropping: Link dropping is nothing but linking out to other bloggers from your posts. It is like linking to the relevant posts of others to give a better experience to your blog readers. This strategy will also help you build great connections with the people who you always link. Sooner or later they will also start linking to your posts, so start linking to others posts.

Commenting: Whenever you publish a post, browse other blogs in your niche and start commenting. Commenting on other blogs is the surefire way to get your blog and website noticed in 2018 and beyond. It will not only give you traffic, but you can enhance your network and online reach.

Is your blog worth reading?

The one question that makes you stand out and get your blog noticed is this, why should I read your site?

If you have the right answers on why should someone spend their time on reading your blog or content, then you are in the right direction. If not, go figure it out.

Design is what makes your blog unique.

If you are seriously thinking about making money from your websites, invest in your blog design. Most online readers won’t like to read stuff on a site that is cluttered heavily. So make your blog simple yet attractive to grab visitors’ attention.

Try to get more blog comments on your posts. This is the surefire way to get your blog noticed in a heavy crowd. If no one comments on your posts, your visitors think that you have no unique stuff so they immediately leave your blog leaving your high bounce rates.

Here are 3 easy steps to get more blog comments.

  1. Reward your commenters. Whenever someone leaves comments on your posts either reply them or visit their blogs to leave comments.
  2. Use CommentLuv plugin (it’s available in free and paid versions). This plugin attracts more comments as it shows your commenters previous posts. So most people like to leave comments on CommentLuv enabled blogs.
  3. Start commenting on other blogs. Why would anyone comment on a new blog if you don’t comment on other blogs? Simple logic, so start commenting on other blog posts and you will start noticing the results.

So what are your thoughts about getting your blog noticed in 2018 or beyond? Do you have more tips on getting more online visibility for blogs? Please share your comments below.

    Even I have been confused as to how much one should write? Should it be daily or with gaps of a few days like 3 to 4 articles one week.
    I have read from authoritative bloggers who say daily blogging is a must, some say don’t do it daily. I guess, we should set our own schedule.

    • Anil Agarwal says:

      I think one can set his own posting schedule. For a long time I have been publishing 3-4 contents every week. But I just decided from June onwards for few months I will be doing 8-10 posts only. But the posts will be more detailed and I hope it will help me drive more traffic to my blog from search engines.

      But you should decide a posting schedule that you can continue for longer period of time.

  2. Karnal Singh says:

    To get your blog noticed is not that easy I suppose…Every blogger wants that…You have given useful tips for the same…I feel the most important part is to recognise the right niche area and then work on that with passion..

    • Anil Agarwal says:

      That’s true Karen. Its about finding the right niche and then writing the contents with the aim to satisfy the needs of targeted readers.

      You have to differenciate yourself from other websites or blogs out there on the internet to leave a big impact on your target audience.

  3. Sometimes we dont have nothing to write so there may be a frequency change in the blog posting but it is neccessay to maintain the frequency of postings. and offcourse good writing always attrack the reader as you do.. 🙂

    • Anil Agarwal says:

      Shiv, first of all you should choose a niche about which you can write on regular basis for many years. If today you are not getting any relevant topic to blog on, you can do it tomorrow. So there is no strict guideline like you have to do x amount of posts in a particular time frame. But over all when it comes about the number of posts you are doing in a month, they should match with your plan.

      And need not to mention, all of your posts will be high quality and relevant for your blog audience.

  4. Sheeroh says:

    I’ve read about the Comment Luv Plugin, the only issue that worries me is getting tons of spammers or people commenting just for the sake of it. About the frequency of writing posts, my opinion is its more important to be consistent and write quality, helpful content that adds value. One person may write daily with zero to little value and another one, once a week that gets many shares because its helpful. Thanks for the link dropping tip!

    • Anil Agarwal says:

      That’s true. Content quality is the first thing that matters the most. So then we have to see how frequently we are able to publish them. If you ask me, I use to write maximum 2-3 posts every week.

  5. Uday Ghulaxe says:

    You can build the greatest website in the world and it will just sit there. The primary step is to create relationship and engage within the blogosphere.

    Step out , Engage and Remark !!

    Guest Posting can do great. After all , great posting is not just for Linkbuilding or driving traffic. It is an effective method to get more social exposure and build connectivity.
    Well, you can even try doing SEO , so that people find your blog via Google Search results.

    Good One Anil 🙂

  8. Prakash says:

    I think the best way to get noticed is guest posting on good blogs. And social media can also play an important role in this.

  9. Balazs Hende says:

    Great post Anil! I have just realized the importance of comments. It should be an essential strategy of every blogger.

    Hi Anil –

    I don’t know if you can help, but I’m really a discouraged blogger about now. I’ve been trying to attract readers and comments and haven’t had much success (not even with my family). I really feel as though my content is good – and I put some effort into my posts. I have also been around the net a bit. For example I have noticed that some posts on writing advice and all have gotten quite some comments when the content isn’t much different than so many others all over.

    I’m sure part of it is that I’m NOT on facebook (and avoit it like the plague for privacy reasons. I’m not on twitter. I have considered twitter, but I don’t want to get trapped into tweeting at the expense of creating my blog posts.

    I also don’t comment a lot on other blogs, though sometimes I would like to comment on a post I liked. Why not? The main reason is that they have discus and I believe I read discus tracks you all over the net, even when you’re not logged in.

    One question you might be able to answer is about adding “share buttons” to my posts or something like that. How intrusive would that be to my blog itself (in other words, what will facebook learn from that button if it’s on my blog). Maybe I sound a bit paranoid, but this tracking us and cookies all over the place does worry me.

    One thing I tried was making a “business card” with my blog address on it. I’ve given them our to some folks I know, but I don’t think any of them have even bothered to check them out. I also have blog links on an e-mail signature I use sometimes.

    Is there any hope? I really put a lot into my posts and it’s really dispiriting that no one seems to notice.

  11. Very good advice Anil and I thank you for the new addition to my education. Well Done! Cheers!
