Today, it is almost indispensable for an online entrepreneur to have one or more blogs. Nowadays, the web is full of micro blogs and blogs that must compete with each other in order to have a good ranking in search results pages.

To have a successful blog, it must be well written, frequently updated and well designed, in one word it must be user friendly. It must target an audience. If you are a blogger, know your audience is a fundamental rule for the success of your blog.

1 – Choose the best niche you want to write articles for your blog. To do this, select a topic that fascinates you and you know to make your job easier. If you do something you love, blogging is very often for you, a pleasure and not a constraint. If you are a new blogger don’t try to narrow yourself to a specific niche, just blog the way your heart says.

2 – Your blog must be unique and original in design and especially in terms of content. Remember you are writing content for reader not for search engine and rankings so always give a personal touch to your items and post frequently. The more you publish, the better your content and you feed the search engines that scan blogs daily.

3 – Updated your blog regularly to keep your site active but you do not have to post every day! Try to work at your own pace. To begin with, two or three articles per week are more than enough at start. Having gained notoriety, you can drop a little on the accelerator if you wish.

4 – You must be an active member of the blogosphere. Visit other blogs in your niche and post them relevant comments. A good review in a high traffic blog will attract the beautiful people to your site.

5 – A blog is a great tool for promotion and marketing. Use it wisely. Do not use a blog to insult a person or demean another blog. You must use it to provide quality information. Remove unwanted Ads and other things from your blog and make it as user friendly.

6 – If you have a blog with good readership base, don’t use it only to sell only product but to provide support to customers and meet the demand of the commentators. Give, give and give, is the key to success.

7 – Make a newsletter or eBook and give a gift to your visitors in exchange for their e-mail address in order to re-contact later. Thus, you will return to your blog. To do this, use an auto-responder like Aweber, mail chimp etc., Email is the best way to reach people directly so each and every mail id is priceless.

8 – Promote your blog. You can include your blog URL in your forum signature, mention it in your newsletter, submit it to blog directories, social bookmarking sites etc.

Follow those methods regularly one day you will surely achieve your goal. If you know more tips for creating a successful blog, tell us in comment.

    I’d say in the long run probably the most important thing to do in the beginning is to really consider the best niche for you. As you said, it should be something that you have something to say about. Because if it’s not, you’re going to run out of ideas pretty quickly. So, don’t start a tech blog/SEO blog just because they are popular. Instead, start a blog about your hobby (of course, tech or SEO might be exactly that for you). Anyway, nice post.
