Ideas for making your blog work for you

It can be quite hard coming up with ideas for making your blog work for you. By that I mean help you generate traffic to your blog, help you to establish yourself as the go-to person in your niche, or how to generate income from your blog (whether directly or indirectly). However, I recently came across a blog post that suggests 90 ways to “make your blog rock”. It’s pretty good.

Stumped for ideas? 90 Tips to Make Your Blog Rock may help! Photo by Mike Licht http://www.flickr.com/photos/notionscapital/In 90 Tips To Make Your Blog Rock, Jeff Bullas gives plenty of very useful tips. Not all of them are specifically to do with blogging as such. For example, he suggests ways of using Linked-in and Twitter as part of your overall blogging strategy.

He also includes tips that are relevant, but which you may not have thought of. For example, Tip #43 says:

“In the meta tags for your photos, make sure the labels/words are what you want them to be – search engines can’t “read” photos, only the labels/meta tags.”

Much of the advice is geared to earning money from your blog, so if that isn’t your prime concern not all of his suggestions will be relevant. Nevertheless, given that many consist of just one or two lines, it won’t take you long to whizz through them and select the ones you like best.

I would think that just implementing one or two of his suggestions each day would start to make a difference within a very short period of time.
