9 Link Building Strategies for Your Online Business

Posted By // 9 comments:
Link Building Strategies

Over the past few years, Google’s Panda, Hummingbird, and Penguin updates have drastically altered how we approach digital marketing. Successful SEO specialists realize that trying new strategies and adapting to changes is mandatory to keep upward momentum continuing. Building quality backlinks is one of the few SEO relics of the past that is still very relevant today, but how you approach link building can make or break your marketing campaign. Here are nine effective link building strategies that work.

1. Find and Report Broken Links


Finding relevant broken links, creating replaceable content, and informing the webmaster is one of the best white hat strategies out there today. This ultra-white hat strategy is appealing because its effectiveness is based on you helping people and making the Internet a better place.

First, you need to locate broken links that are associated with your niche. To accomplish this, use an SEO tool such as Screaming Frog to crawl relevant websites and search for dead pages. Check the context of the link, and if you have relevant content already, you are good to go. If not, consider creating or outsourcing relevant content.

Finally, simply email the webmaster to let them know about the dead page, and provide your link as a substitution. If the webmaster’s contact information is not available, you can try Googling ‘whois’ followed by the domain in question. If this does not produce the contact information, you may want to contact the site’s hosting company.

2. Create New Content Regularly


One thing all high-ranking websites have in common is that they are not sterile. It’s not enough to create a website – it should be an ongoing project. One of the easiest and most effective ways to keep your audience interested and create internal links is to add a blog to your domain.

Content Strategy

Try to update your blog every day, and link to relevant pages on your domain. Keep your content fresh, interesting, exciting, and evergreen, and use videos, images, polls, and contests to engage your visitors. Quality content will always be in demand, regardless of whether you pepper it with the right keywords to attract algorithms.

3. Make It Easy to Link to Your Website


Not everyone who links to you is going to be Internet savvy, so it is up to you to make linking to your website painless. You can accomplish this by providing a ‘Link to Us’ page at the end of each post. That page should have an HTML snippet that webmasters can simply copy and paste. Make sure your contact information is readily available so webmasters can contact you if necessary.

4. Reach a Broader Audience


Expanding your audience opens new potential for inbound links, so think big. The most effective way to do grow your audience is to stay active on social media, provide excellent content, and hope that people share your content. Another way to reach a lot of people is to offer your content in other languages. There are plenty of translation tools online such as Google Translate, or for more accuracy, you may want to hire someone. Submit this content to non-English directories. Time can also be your friend as long as you create evergreen content.

5. Talk to Friends and Family


Chances are very high that at least one person in your circle has their own website, and it is pretty much guaranteed that most of them have social media profiles. Sometimes all it takes is nicely asking them to link your page. It is worth noting that Google’s Penguin update has been known to penalize webmasters for irrelevant links, so you may want to request that those who link to you also add some context so that the link doesn’t feel forced.

6. Reach Out to Local Media Outlets


Receiving a link from a legitimate online publication like a newspaper or TV station is a great way to boost your search engine rankings. Reach out to local writers and let them know that you are available for commenting on relevant stories. You could also try pitching a story about your company or organization, but that may be a tough sell if you are not doing anything particularly newsworthy. Make sure that you are confident that you are in fact an expert in your field before you attempt this strategy.

7. Join Your Local Chamber of Commerce


Joining your local chamber of commerce is a surefire way to get a link from a reputable organization. As an added bonus, joining will give you the opportunity to form mutually beneficial relationships with other local businesses. You don’t need to limit yourself to just a chamber of commerce either – there are many organizations for businesses to join, including SCORE, Entrepreneurs’ Organization, NFIB, and Meetup, just to name a few.

8. Be Community Oriented


In general, being active in your community is going to help you build links, so sponsor a charity or local sports team, speak at local schools, and provide testimonials and reviews for other local businesses. Get your website listed in local directories such as your building’s online directory, local newspapers, and your city/county directory, and provide detailed reviews for other relevant websites that are listed using Yelp, CitySearch, AngiesList, and Merchant Circle.

9. Just Ask


Sometimes the simplest strategies are the most effective, and it never hurts to ask. Email the webmasters of reputable sites that are related to yours, and simply ask them directly to link your website. Offering to link back to them in exchange can actually result in Google penalties, so consider offering them something in return such as a product review or a mention on your social media pages. You will receive plenty of rejections if you get a response at all, but don’t be discouraged. Persistence is the key to link building.

How to Handle Negative App Reviews for Better ASO?

Posted By // 3 comments:
Negative App Reviews

App Reviews are the important part of App Store Optimization (ASO). The negative reviews create bad image of your app and your company towards the people.

The most of the people always read the first 3 to 5 reviews before downloading any app. If your app reviews are negative then it may happen that user will switch to another app without downloading your app.

This ultimately result in a decrement in app downloads.

We are unable to handle the app reviews directly but yes indirectly we can handle it.

It’s very simple…

Find the reasons for the negative app reviews and resolve them.

Here Are The Possible Reasons For The Negative App Reviews


1.  App Complexity


Many times it happens that the app is very complex that users may face the problem in using it properly and sometimes that irritation results in the negative app review.

2.  Not Providing Listed Features


Sometimes, it happens that you have listed many features in the app description of app store but truly your app is not providing all that features. The users are downloading your app because of its features and if you are not providing the same then it will definitely result in a negative app review. It is about trust that what you’re writing and what you are providing.

3.  Lot of Bugs & Crashes


We all hate bugs. If your app contains a lot of bugs then surely it will ultimately result in negative app reviews. No one likes to use the app with bugs and crashes.

4.  Make the Phone Hang or Consumes Much Battery


No matter how awesome your app is but if it makes the phone hang or consumes the much battery power then on one is going to use it. It is also the reason which leads the user towards the negative app review.

There are many other possibilities. Just think from user’s perspective and you will get it.

You can use the above reasons as the prevention of negative reviews also.

Do the full testing before launching any app to prevent 1, 3 and 4 points listed above. Always double test the app usability before launching it in the market.

And if we discuss the 2nd point, then it’s totally on your hand. Don’t list wrong features to get good app store ranking and a good number of download. Because you can get more downloads but uninstall rate will increase and also negative app reviews which ultimately results in the poor practice of app store optimization.

So keep your app description fully informative based on your app and clearly write the key features of your app.

If you keep above two things in mind there are very fewer chances to receive negative app reviews.

Yeah… Prevention is always better than cure.

But,

What If You Received Negative App Review? How To Handle It?


Don’t worry…We can learn from the mistakes and also make it positive if we handle it with care. J

Always reply them…

If you got the negative review don’t ignore it. If you ignore it then it indicates the sign of irresponsibility. And people don’t like irresponsible people.

You can learn a lot from the negative reviews. It can be part of your success also.


Here are Some Examples


If you got the review and it’s totally your fault, then don’t be ashamed of apologies. You must have to apologize for the inconvenience. But a just apology is not the solution; if possible, provide them the perfect solution based on their needs.

Always try to reply your negative review in short time periods which show that you are taking care of your app users.

You can learn much from your review. If your users are demanding for some extra feature and you have the ability to add it in your app then it makes your app more valuable.

You can use Emojis to make your reply more effective.

What will be the Result After Your Replies?


If you have given the satisfactory reply then many of your reviewers may change their opinion and your negative reviews will be converted into positive once.

Yeah….That’s what we really wanted……J

15 Blogging Tips and Tricks to Make Your Blog Stand Out

Posted By // 26 comments:
Blogging Tips and Tricks

Want your blog to stand out from the crowd? But wondering why it is not even getting noticed?

Whether you are a newbie blogger or have been blogging for a while now, you must keep in mind that it takes continuous effort to improve your work and build relationship in order to create a successful blog.

Here I have listed 15 such blogging tips which will help you to create a better blog for your readers. Make sure you not only learn all these basic blogging tips but also follow them in a consistent approach.

Blogging Tips and Tricks for the Beginners in Blogging


1. Decide Your Blogging Niche


According to me, what niche you are choosing is of utmost importance. Before you start a blog, understand your need for a blog – whether you want to blog for money or just share about your knowledge in any particular topic or showcase your writing skills.

If you are not sure about your niche of blogging, then chances are there that you will loose interest after sometime. So do your homework properly to find out the right niche for you.

2. Design Your Blog Properly


Your blog is the home cum office for you. And I don’t think you would like to portray it as a scattered & clumsy place. So consider to spend some money & effort to design it properly.

You may also choose some free themes to start blogging with, but as we all know, premium themes are worth the value they come up with.

Choose a perfect theme according to your blogging niche. Also make sure to optimize the theme header, sidebar and footer area. To give it a perfect look, you need to organize your blog labels with recent posts, categories, social media icons, author box, email subscription box etc. in the right manner.

3. Add About & Privacy Page


Whether you want to monetize your blog with Google Adsense or not, About & Privacy page are the very important factors for any blog. Write all the details about you and your site like who are you, what your site is all about, in the About page in your site.

Similarly the Privacy Page is also another important page of your blog. You need to mention your readers that why you collect their data (like email id, name, phone number etc.) and what you will do with that to make them feel that the subscribers are safe on your site.

You may add the About and Privacy pages on your site header navigation bar or in the footer, as per your blog design.

4. Proper Keyword Research


Doing proper keyword research is the most important SEO factor. So take time to find out the LSI & long tail keywords for your targeted keyword.

You can use Google keyword planner to find some long tail keywords. Though there are other free & paid tool available for keyword research, but Keyword Planner remains the best for beginners.

Make sure to use your targeted keyword in the title, permalink, at the beginning & ending of the article. Also put those long tail & LSI keywords throughout the article in a natural way.

5. Don't be a CopyCat


SEO Friendly Content

You must be aware that plagiarism is an offence. And no one wants to invite penalty from Google.

But if you are thinking to copy articles from others blog & give an attribute (read LinkBack) to them, then drop this idea right now. This practice might have helped you to rank in the earlier days, but not anymore.

Also whatever you write, try to create it in your own style. People always welcome new & unique content. So try to offer something in your own flavor.

6. Write Catchy Title


Headline or title is the first thing any visitor will see in your article. So if they don’t like the article heading, chances are higher that they will immediately leave your site.

Some eye catchy headline with emotions, humor etc. compel the visitors to click and read through the article. You can make a rough title for your article at the first stage and once you complete writing, try to make it more interesting & catchy.

7. Understand the Importance of White Space


I don’t think anyone loves to read a big cluster of sentences. Not you either, right?

Improper usage of white spaces makes the content too difficult to read. So for ease of eyes & smooth reading, try to use short paragraphs and sentences on your blog post. Shorter paragraphs with a clear & logical message makes it easy to read and understand.

It is recommended that you make the paragraphs with a maximum of 3-4 sentences which makes the overall feeling of the article lighter.

8. Write Quality Content


Everyday, a huge number of new blogs are getting started. So there are enough chances that your blog will soon disappear in the crowd. This is the time you must give preference to quality over quantity.

Many newbie blogger thinks that, they have to post daily, whatever be the content is. But this is not true. There is no harm, if you can post everyday. However what really matters is quality.

Try to give your readers the value they are looking for and you can expect a great share of returning visitors.

9. Update Consistently


Consistency is another factor, most of the new bloggers lack in. As I said in my earlier point, it is not mandatory to post daily. You may be comfortable with posting twice or thrice a week.

But whatever it is, try to make it a routine and be strict on it. Try to capture ideas whenever & wherever possible and make a rough piece whenever you are free. Later you can convert them into a powerful blog post.

10. Take Your Images Seriously


This is the age of visual media. So Images become an integral part of your blog post.

Gone are the days, when you could just embed some stock images in your article. Try to prepare a meaningful image as per your write-up. You may use tools like Canva, PicMonkey to create great images.

Also make your images SEO friendly using alt tag and title tag.This helps you to get some search engine traffic through the images.

11. Create a Good Linking Structure


A good linking structure is highly effective to search engine optimization. Linking related blog posts using the right anchor text helps you to decrease the bounce rate of your site while generating more page views per visitor. You can also put it in the “You May Also Like” format in the middle of a post.

Another great way to decrease bounce rate is to display related posts at the end of each and every post. When the readers finish reading a piece of content, they look for what next they can do in your site. By adding related content at the end of the posts, you can help them to browse more articles from your blog.

You can either do it manually or install a related post plugin to make your job easy. However, make sure that you do not overdo this, otherwise you may annoy your visitors.

12. Give Some Time to Social Share


Social Media Sharing

You are writing some great quality articles. But the question is how many people are reading them?

Ranking higher is definitely the key to get readers. But until unless, you share them, your article won’t be able to get the exposure they are intended to get.

So after you publish your article, take some time to promote it in the social networking sites. Social media is the great platform to spread to the audiences on a large scale.

Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, FlipBoard, Tumblr, Reddit, Dig, Delicious are some of the effective mediums to get more readers for your post. But try to limit it some extent, otherwise you will end up spending more time than required.

13. Start Engaging


Engaging with other blogs in your niche not only helps you to increase your blog traffic, but also helps to build a healthy relationship with fellow bloggers.

Though there are many ways for blog engagement, but personally I think Commenting is the best and easiest approach to do so. In that way, you will be able to gradually build your own network. And how can we forget that, this is also a great way to connect with the readers you might be missing out.

Another great option is to join a forum or blog community where your target audience hang out. Blog communities like Kingged and AHANow are the great place to engage with some great bloggers in your niche. You can try to answer some people’s queries & at the same time capture some great blog post ideas.

14. Use Google Analytics


If you want to blog seriously, then you must keep a track of your blog statistics. Google analytics is the best tool to track your sites traffic. So, consider to install Google analytics on your site from the day one.

But at the same time don’t get obsessed with numbers too early. Give some time to your blog before you can judge the traffic trends.

15.Build Your Email List


Building a satisfactory subscription list is what every blogger might want. More subscribers equals to better success rate. Email subscriber services like Feedburner, Aweber, MailChimp etc. can give you great results.

You can put a subscription box on your sidebar to capture the mail ids of your targeted audiences. You can also have a Subscription Form at the end of every post. Along with growing your e-mail list, it will also help you to recycle your traffic.

It is definitely tough at the beginning stage, but this email list is what you need for your desired traffic. So, keep trying J

Conclusion


These are 15 blogging tips which according to me are must-follow for any newbie blogger. But we all know every blogger hits this blogosphere in their own unique way. So it is very much possible that you have 15 of your own. I would love to hear the experience of your first blogging days. So, please feel free to add to this list in the comments below.
