Are you a blogger? Or if you want to start blogging from the new year 2019 then you should read the article before the start. Google, the giant search engine has many algorithms for indexing a page such as backlinks, social shares, mobile-friendly pages etc. Today, I am teaching you how to grow your blog faster in 2019.
As I say every time that makes blogging as your passion, notonly to earn money. I believe that a mancan get success through his/her work ifonly he/she love his/her own work.
First, think what is the role of blogging in yourlife? Love or passion? If yes, continue without any hesitation. If your answeris no, then you may earn some money for some time but it will be limited.
Let’s start to the main area…
Always choose WordPress platform for your site. Many users choose Blogger at the time of starting. Blogger has the limited option for customizing the site but the WordPress has unlimited option to customize through its plugins to grow your blog.
- Customization is easy
- Unlimited Modification option.
- Community support
- Plugins and Themes
- It’s been around for many years etc.
So, choose WordPress instead of Blogger. But if you want to start through Blogger, then try to jump WordPress after a couple of months.
2. Perfect Domain as a Brand
First, choose a domainwith an uncommon different name. Because your domainname will be your brand. Your audience will know your site through the name.Let’s discuss the extension of the domain…
Try to buy a domain with a worldwide extension. Because you can easily push that domain to get rank faster. I would always recommend you to choose .com, .net or .org extensions for your domain. You can easily get many other domains with other extensions at a very cheap rate. But don’t go to this. Try to pick any of an extension from those three for your site domain and grow your blog in 2019.
3. Faster Hosting Plan
If you are in WordPress instead of Blogger then you have to choose a better hosting plan for your site. Always keep in mind to choose Cloud Hosting or VPS Hosting to get better performance and speed for your site to your blog. Because your hosting slow your site for which the site can’t get rank in Google or any search engine.
I know that the rate of Cloud Hosting or VPS Hosting is veryhigh. Then I will recommend you to choose Shared Hosting for 6 months or a coupleof months. After some earning push to the better hosting which I have told before.
Always try to purchase hosting from a reputable company such as Bluehost (recommended), Site Ground, Resellerclub etc. You may get hosting at a very low price but their hosting will slow your site. Then it will be very hard to get rank in Google.
Social media marketing is a very useful and free tool to get more traffic on your blog post. But you have to keep consistency on the marketing to grow your blog. Some ideas can help you to do this perfectly…
First, choose some social media networks where you can work fluently for your blog. I will recommend you to choose Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest for this. These four networks can push your blog through huge traffic.
Let’s continue step by step…
- Create all these four social media networks with your blog name. (create a Facebook page, not a Facebook profile)
- Active daily on social media sites.
- Engage with your audience through these networks.
- The main important part is, Publish your Blog Post on social media networks.

5. Respond to the Comment
You have to set a comment section at the below of every post where your audience can write their thought or queries about the blog topic. You need to reply to every comment to give thanks or to solve their problems. This will be another strategy to push more visitor to grow your blog.
Try to enable comment at the below. You can add social networks login features to get more information from your audience. Use Akismet Anti-Spam plugin in WordPress to prevent spam in the comment and contact form submission.
You have to be consistent to post in your blog. Make a schedule to post a topic in theblog. First think that how much time youhave for your blog and then decide that how many post you can publish in a weekor month.
After making, set a date to publish the post. As you can set a day such as Sunday, Monday etc to publish. Because your audience will wait for that day to read your post. If you use Email Marketing, try to send mail about the post to your readers on the day.
7. Focus on SEO
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the main tool to boost organic traffic for your site. Make your post heading very attractive and also related to your post content. Keep your meta description as well as related to post content and including your focus keyword of the post to grow your blog.
Try to write all content through the same language and over 500 words. I think you need to write a detailed post of any topic to understand your audience. You may follow some rules…
- Focus on heading and meta description.
- Include focus keyword in the heading and meta description.
- Include some images related to the post topic.
- Add some headings in the post.
- Use para after writing 5-6 lines.
- Don’t copy from any site.
I use a plugin called Yoast SEO for WordPress for my site. It really helps me to make SEO friendly content on TechnicalTurner. I will recommend you to use this plugin if you are in WordPress.
8. Logo, Design & Layout
Create a logo for your blog to show your audience. People will know your blog through its name and logo. Every company has their own logo by which you know them. Create a logo and a favicon for your site. I used Logogenie to make the logo of TechnicalTurner.
After creating a logo, set a simple customizable layout design for your site. Don’t try to make your site as garbage. Create a simple design for your website. Follow this method…
- Set the main area of the post.
- Set a sidebar (left or right).
- Set the share button for your post.
- Try to add advertisement in proper place.
- Don’t use popup advertisement.
- Make simple look for your site.
If you use WordPress, then try to buy the theme from a reputed company such as Genesis, Divi, Thrive, Envato etc.
Link Building is likebuild the relationship. I am talking aboutinternal links and backlinks. As per Google algorithms, backlinks are very important to boost SEO of your site. So, try to make morebacklinks to rank in Google easily.
Internal linking is also very important instead of backlink building. Set some internal links in every post. It can attract readers and also push them to the other post. It has more facilities as well as backlinks.
10. Guest Post
Guest Posting or guest blogging has many benefits. You can earn and spread your word through a guest post. Everyone will know you and your blog. When a blog accepts a guest post from you then you can generate backlinks and also some traffic to grow your blog.
