They earn decent bucks with the viewers attracted to their blog. However, attracting viewers is not as easy as it sounds. Blog owners need to post some useful and meaningful content in order for the viewers to visit the blog to check them out. But it does not also mean that attracting viewers is rocket science. All that a blogger needs to do is post some highly valuable content on their blog. If you are a blogger and wondering how to create highly valuable content then here are some tips and ways for you.
  • A blogger needs to become the customers’ need’s resource person
This is the foremost thing a blogger needs to bear in mind. Think about, what your customer’s real problem is. Blogging is not entirely concerning your business, it is all about the consumers. If as a blogger it is your wish to grab their attention and engage them with the blog and lure them to the sales department, then it is very essential that the blogger has to lay his or her attention on the customers, their issues.

When good content is created it helps in the success of the prospects and so they will be more engaged to the blog and keep revisiting your blog.

If you are not sure what your customers are looking for from your blog, the best way to become sure is by asking them. If you have been running for a long time a business, then chances are that you would be knowing many of them already. So, ask them about their issues.

But if you are a beginner and do not know your customers well then start conducting surveys using free tools that are available on the internet.
  • KeyWords
Once you have conducted surveys to understand your customers better, Keyword extraction from the questions you have used in the survey becomes important. When you are aware of all the customer issues, you will notice that there some phrases that keep recurring.

Use those phrases, may be add up a few of yours to them and then use the tool for keywords searching. Put all of your Phrases in the box and choose the option of keyword matching and then hit the search button.

Once you do this the keyword phrases you have typed will be returned to you by and also some other phrases that are related o the ones you have typed in the search box. Not only this, this keyword search tool provides you an insight of the number of people who laid a search for every single phrase in the previous month and the competition that these phrases have. The search columns of local and global ones gives a blogger an idea of the amount of interest others people have for a particular keyword. If you focus on the phrases that are highly researched in your posts, then you will be successful in luring viewers to your site.

Once you are done with identifying the popular keywords, visit the Google Insights for Search. Go to the bottom of the page and look for “Rising Researches” and “Top Researches.” The top researches will tell you the popular keywords that are being searched for and the other search will let you know what is the next search term that will get popular.

If you create content that is fresh and valuable prior to it getting mainstream you will be successful in attracting a lot of viewers to your blog.

Google’s Next Big Algorithm Update: Penguin 4 says Matt Cutts



Yesterday night, we have got another surprise from Matt Cutts Google's head of search spam, announced at SMX West that a "next generation" of Penguin is coming in 2013.

This is going to be big as expected. I was persuaded that all SEO’s and Webmasters around the world were talking that what’s Next in 2013? I specifically was expecting something on e commerce since this is growing industry on online space.

Matt did not mention the merchant quality algorithm but he did specifically say it might be the next generation of the Penguin update. The same as reported on Search Engine Land and Search Engine Round Table.
Matt Says “We have a potential launch later this year, maybe a little bit sooner, looking at the quality of merchants and whether we can do a better job on that, because we don’t want low quality experience merchants to be ranking in the search results."

However, Google is on his way to give their users a better and relevant search results.  So Google may drop bad merchant’s rankings in the later 2013.

This would be named as Penguin 4 officially. There are total 3 penguin updates we have in the past as following.
No idea or certain dates has been disclosed on Penguin 4 Update. But yes If I had to guess this might arrive on Q 2 or Q 3 2013.
