Hey! Welcome to another series of how to rank high with your new blog. In this very short and interesting article, I will reveal the top 10 reasons why you are not ranking high with your new blog and what to do right now.
Of course, you want to drive more organic and social traffic to your blog. So, pick a pen and set aside five minutes of your time. Ready? Let’s go…..
Reasons You Are Not Ranking With Your New Blog
1. Because Of Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V:
One way to rank very low in search results is to continually copy content from other blogs.
If you are guilty of copy and paste then don’t expect organic traffic. The domains you are copying from have higher authority than yours, therefore, you will hardly outrank them.
2. Your Blog Design Is Complex:
As a new blogger, there is tendency to want everything in your blog. You want to implement every feature in your blog.
You have so many sidebar widgets, up to 50 plugins installed, image sliders, videos etc. These features slow down your blog and ultimately harm your mobile users.
Trust me, nobody likes a complex and slow loading blog.
3. You Have Not Submitted Your Site:
It is true that Search Engines will later discover your blog. However, a good practice is to submit your sitemap and fetch as Google or Bing bolt…
This will aid faster indexing and ranking…. Search engines didn’t discover your blog because you didn’t show them.
4. You Don’t Use Keywords Well:
You have been posting articles without paying close attention to your use of keyword.
Looking closely, you will discover that you don’t use focus keyword in tags, url, SEO title, first paragraph and headlines.
You also do not pay much attention to your keyword density.
5. You Don’t Use Headlines Properly:
One reason you are not ranking is that you don’t really know how to properly implement the H1 to H6 deadlines.
Ensure to use only one H1 tag in your article and let it begin your title. Then lower points carry H2 and other titles. You understand right?
6. You Are Too In Haste:
Your writings are scattered and not search engine optimised at all.
Your paragraphs are too long, your sentences are not easy to understand and your use of grammar is something else…
Even search engines don’t understand how to start indexing your article….
7. Social Connections:
You don’t share posts on social media and at the same time do not have share buttons so that those who love your article can help broadcast it.
You totally neglected social traffic…
8. You Don’t Build Links:
You neglected off-page SEO strategies such as link building.
You are too lazy to build link, therefore, you have lost referral traffic to your blog.
9. People Are Disappointed:
People come to your blog and do not get what they want. So, they searched for other blogs where they would find exactly what they are looking for.
10. You Have Created Any Trend:
If I may ask, how many of your articles can your boldly say, “I was the first to write this post?”
You always wait for others to create the content first. Be creative.
