Blogging Mistakes New Bloggers Make…

If you want to run a successful blogging career, reading should come first so you won’t make mistakes…

Though it’s okay to make mistake, many can’t handle it and those that do, well… hm…

When starting a business, from your foundation to your finishing needs to be perfectly done. So you won’t suffer collapse along the way…

Below are some blogging Mistakes you might make as a new blogger and how to overcome such mistakes.

Using a free hosting platform to host your blog

Blogging can be awesome if a blog is being run smoothly and still, it can be frustrating if you always get downtime.

Because of lack of funds, many Bloggers run their blogs on either a cheap web host or a free web host. And trust me, these free or cheap host doesn’t guarantee you 50% uptime.

After running their blog for some days, they will start getting downtime more than uptime, which in turn will make Google pullout their traffic.

And the truth is, once you lost your traffic, it will be difficult to get them back, especially as a new blogger.

To avoid this blogging mistake, you need to get yourself a good web host. In doing so, you won’t need to bother about downtime and your blogging will go as smooth as possible.

Using plugins you don’t need

Some bloggers use plugins because of the attractiveness it brings to their blogs. So they use some crazy amount of plugins not knowing it can cause harm to their blog.

Hey, I know that those plugins are beautifying your blog, but have you considered the amount of weight it is also putting on your blog?

Okay, let’s try to do a speed test and see how your blog is performing…

don’t know how to do a site speed test? Here’s a link – Google Page Speed Insight

The consequences of a slow blog are as followed;

  • You’ll lose search engine traffic.
  • Your hosting might shut you down or make you upgrade your current plan due to high CPU usage.
  • You’ll also lose organic traffic because nobody likes a slow site.

Copy and paste other bloggers contents (plagiarism)

In the blogging world, plagiarism is one of the greatest sins every blogger must avoid.

Google frowns at plagiarism… In fact, a copy and paste blogs hardly get the required traffic they need to make sales. And without traffic, you can’t make money as a blogger

And do note that once your blog is being reported often, you will lose all its quality, thus making the blog useless.

Don’t copy other bloggers hard work, if you can’t come up with ideas, please look for another profession.

Destroying your blog all for the sake of SEO

Many new bloggers are destroying their blog simply because they heard someone somewhere talked about SEO.

I have a friend who claimed to be an SEO expert after one week of creating his very first blog.

Now search engine traffic is not coming and his blog is like a graveyard.

After a while, he gave up and called me to check his blog… After checking his blog, I realize he has messed his blog up all in the name of SEO… Lol

Hey, you can’t just be an SEO expert in less than one week of having your very first blog.

Don’t engage in SEO practice without proper learning and understanding…

Conclusion

Before you venture into any business online or offline, make sure you learn how it works.

If not, succeeding will be a bigger problem…

    Nice article to finish the week with. I sincerely don’t play with Seo o, because I’ve always known that if you do it wrongly, it will kill your blog.

    • Free hosting is good when it is being hosted on WordPress.com or blogger.com .

      There are some hosting providers that offer free hosting – those web host providers are bad and can kill your business before it even begin.

  16. Hey Babanature,

    In my opinion – Blogging is a journey and you should stay true to yourself and the content you love to write. To keep yourself organized you should have a planner to plan what you are writing, when you are writing it and when you are uploading.

    The general rule for blogging is to write for users first and search engines second. Even with your social media efforts, especially as a new blogger and don’t have a large social following, it can be difficult to get your content seen.

    Every blog post should be researched and optimized for SEO in order to appear in the search results for relevant searches. You have picked nice points and these are commonly seen in blogosphere when it comes to newbie.

    Eventually, thanks for sharing your worthy information with us.

    With best wishes,

    Amar Kumar
