Trends – or fashion in the most common language – are under constant change all the time as per the society needs. It is so gradually updating and adapting to the changing world that it almost seems self-changing at times. Blogging also offers some trends and we’ll be discussing just that: the blogging trends of 2013.
Pick me on the Results Page
2013 has brought on a huge increase in internet-related work and tasks. The number of websites and posts and web-pages and what-not has increased to such high levels that search engines like Google have been forced to amend their policy and update the result-providing system. That has resulted in many a websites to completely fall out of the search result criteria. This change has been based greatly upon quality being preferred over quantity now. Updating your blog with a new post every day is not what will get you a definite slot on the search-result pages. Instead, it is the quality of your posts that will count. The posts have to be well-written, organized, strategized and soundly enlightening to score that slot.
Socialize your Blog on the Social Media
Another idea is to use social media in your posts as nowadays a great popularity of the social media has been seen. If your blog allows the audience to share their views and discuss that blog post with a friend through a popular social media that they are already using, it becomes really convenient for them and – if it must be added – a score in your basket. The social media is basically a great help in the blogging system but be sure to choose the correct media too because using an unpopular sharing media might not benefit anyone – much less you – as it won’t be used by as many people and you will be ranked down low on the results pages.
Blogs That Talk to the Audience
Quality comes in a number of ways when it comes down to blogging. A blog offers so much more than just a piece of boring news and a bunch of great links to follow up on that. It offers exposure to a great many aspects of a single topic. It allows one to discuss the topic. On blogs which have a comment-reply system going on, interested audience share their views on the subject under scrutiny. Another interested party might have something to add. This way even the things that the blogger himself forgot to include in the original posts – because not everything can be told in one post and that’s a fact – the participants of the discussion tend to cover up the point. Furthermore, it adds a personal touch to the blog which is appreciated and preferred, even, by search engines.
See it to believe it!
Another way to improve your blog-post quality is to make use of visual aid. Adding pictures to your blog posts will make them more attractive and presentable. That adds quality. Also, videos and audios of what you are discussing on the blog also increases what you might call the personification of the blog. For instance, in a travel blog, pictures of the site under discussion and videos of fun activities being done over there might be a good choice.
What you do with your blog is your choice and your call but it will be the very thing to score you a spot on the searches’ page so you will want to play your cards well.
