Amateur Bloggers Steps to Avoid while Growing

Blogging World is booming as never with thousands of Blogs starting everyday and with the ever enticing Google Adsense adding Monetary value to it Blogging has indeed become more from a hobby to a Profession.

There are Tonn's and Tonn's of Blogs out there in the Internet offering you advice on Blogging, Search Engine Optimization, Adsense, Search Engine Traffic etc and an Amateur Blogger has so much content in front of him that he is puzzled as What to take as advice and What Not to take as Advice.

Here are my 2cents while growing as an Amateur Blogger in this Blogging World

More Content More Traffic: If you take the case of any of the Top Blogs you should be able to notice that the more Content a Blog has the More is the Traffic unless it is a Blog about Celebrities or Porn. As an Amateur Blogger you don't need to post multiple Times a Day nor will you find time to post multiple times per day. The important thing is to be consistent in postings at least once a day.

Read 10 Folds more than Writing: It is simple Read more and ideas will strike your mind as your knowledge increases. Important sources of Information would be Books, Magazines, News Papers, other Blogs, News Letters etc.

Avoid Early Monetization: Programs like Google Adsense, Yahoo Publisher, Chitika, Text Ads entice most of the Bloggers in Monetizing their Blogs at the early stages. As a Blogger with very little Traffic to your Blog it is best not to Monetize your Blog. As Search Engine Traffic is more for your Blog Growth Bloggers should concentrate on Traffic Growth than Monetizing his Blog.

Quality is Important: Quality of the content is important for every Blog in order to convert a One Time Visitor to a Repeated Visitor. Top Blogs mainly get their Traffic from Loyal Visitors who Visit their Blog all the Time. If you are planning to Write 10 Posts per day with Average Content I would suggest that 4 Posts with Excellent Quality Content would be better off in Long Term Goals.

Blog for Long Term: Most of the Bloggers give up in a Week, a Month or after a Couple of Months. It is important to Understand that Blogging is easy but Monetizing is difficult. Blogging will take Time and Definitely more than a Couple of months in order to be notices by a Larger Crowd.

Avoid Checking Visitor Statistics: This is something that almost all the Bloggers tent to do But as an Amateur Blogger the rate is higher and one tends to get disappointed will the Low Traffic to your Blog in your early Stages. You cannot get a Traffic of 132,324,343,439( A random No) Visitors Per Day on Day one of your Blogging World. You need to Grow up consistently Day by Day, Week by Week and Month by Month and Year by Year.

Learn from Other Bloggers: As it is said You will Learn More by Observing it is very much True in Blogging World. Read others Blogger's Blog and learn about their Blogging Techniques, Posting Frequency etc

My 2cents for amateur Bloggers. T become a Good Problogger again the emphasis would be to get Quality and Consistent Content on your Blog Posts. Do you have more thoughts to share... Post your Comments !

This new feature is introduced as a Widget Application and would not be applicable to Bloggers like this Blog who still use the old Blogger Template. Bloggers can insert a maximum of 3 Adsense Widgets on any single page(as per Adsense Rules and Regulations).

Google adds Adsense Videos to YouTube

Youtube Videos the most popular Online Video Network seems to be the next target for Google AdSense as i noticed an Advertisement while playing an Online Video on Youtube. It looks like Google AdSense is testing Advertisements on selected Youtube Videos.

The Adsense Ads on the Youtube Videos seems to be transparent and appear at the bottom of the Video Screen. Further Google seemed creative as to when the ads would appear in the Video. Youtube Adsense Ads appear exactly 15seconds after the start of a video and lasted for 15 seconds. Also the Advertisements seems to be irrelevant to the Video that is currently playing on Youtube.

Once the Adsense Ads are clicked they would appear on the entire screen with an Exit button on the top right corner to return back to the Youtube Video. The ads also seem to be a One Time ads as they do not re appear again in the Youtube Video for a particular user.

Google smart Advertisement might or might not successful as the whole world has been watching Ad Free Videos at Youtube. Would the Online Video Viewer be annoyed by these Flash based Advertisements or would he be happy with it.. Only Time can tell.. What do you say..... Post your comments !
