Search the Internet:

Browse through the Internet for ideas, themes and other blogs, e-magazines or portals to hunt for ideas. The Net is a huge repository of information, ideas, facts and figures, so you will definitely find something new and exciting every day, both within and outside your niche.

Ask your audience:

Your audience can be an enriching source of topics as well. Check their comments on what they would like to read, or you can conduct a poll of a few suggested topics to see what your audience is really interested in.

Ask others to contribute:

When you are not able to exercise your brain muscles, it is okay to take help from others. So, you can ask fellow bloggers for a guest post or you can put up an interview of a someone influential in your social or niche.

Keep an idea file:

Ideas come and go within a matter of seconds. So, it is better to keep your ideas written down as and when they come. It is better to keep them in an idea file before they got lost.

Check what others are writing:

You can always go to the blogs of other bloggers to check what they are writing. You can borrow a topic or two from them. However, you need to develop your own unique content.

Expand on your niche:

If you are a niche blogger like a food blogger or a lifestyle blogger, you can decide to extend on the same to get new ideas. Take cues from what you had written earlier, and start from there. Pick up topics which had maximum hits and give a new perspective to them.

See what’s trending:

Trending topics always fetch a good number of hits. These are topics, which people are currently reading and writing about. So, if you can use proper keywords and good SEO techniques, your blog post can get a greater reach when the topic is trending.

Share your story:

Your own story ad experiences are always new and unique, so write about them. Readers will never find this on anyone else’s blog, so if they find something interesting, they will always love to come back for a good read again.

Link your blogs:

Choose topics, which lets you link content to your previous blogs as well. Or you can link it to some interesting article or information, which is already popular.

Get Creative:

The best way to choose exciting topics is to get creative. If you are a food blogger, you can write related articles on travel. You can explore a completely different niche to give something interesting to read for your regular followers. It might be something new and unexpected for the visitors.

Sometimes, it just takes a nanosecond for that brilliant idea or topic to click in your mind, but at times it might take ages. But, to sustain and grow in this age of competitive marketing, you need your own unique selling proposition to stand out in the crowd.

Other Common SEO Mistakes To Avoid

SEO

We have seen some common SEO mistakes in our previous blog. However the list is far from over. Here is a list of another 5 important SEO mistakes and how to avoid it.

INFOGRAPHICS_SEOMISTAKES2

Poor Content

Content is the foundation of every SEO strategy. Poorly written or copied content is a definite NO if you want to top in SEO results. Google never appreciates duplicate or copied content and never indexes such pages. Every search engine prefers unique content that is valuable for the readers.

Finding content from other websites and tweaking is also practiced in the industry. However, this may affect your trust as a company and damage the reputation in the long run.

Non-Unique Title Tags

There are websites with same title for different pages. Some CMSs auto-generate such titles. A title tag is the most important part of an SEO and it should be unique so that a search engine crawler can index it correctly. A correct title tag tells the searcher that the content is relevant to what he is looking for.

Non-Unique Meta Descriptions

Meta descriptions are HTML attributes that describes content of websites to the search engines. Using the same meta-descriptions on different pages will not do any good. Meta descriptions should be descriptive and persuasive within the 160 character limit, so that the web page does its sales pitch on its own.

Non-Credible Links

Adding links from low page rank sites creates zero credibility.  A link from an authoritative blog from your industry adds value to your content and boosts your page rank and the other diminishes your page rank. Hence avoid non-credible links from your website and value quality more than quantity.

Not Optimizing Right Keywords

Optimizing wrong keywords or keywords phrase is a common SEO mistake. Going for single keywords generic to the industry may bring traffic but might not actually convert. Using keyword phrases of three to four words specifies what you are selling. A little bit of research using keyword tools can help you identity what people search online. The more the consumer becomes aware of the service/product the specific the search phrase they would use. Highly specific multi keyword phrases are easier to rank and yields specific search results compared to generic ones.

The list is not exhaustive and SEO works well only when all the parts of it work together synchronously as parts of a watch work.

Common SEO Mistakes To Avoid

SEO

After doing all the market research, coming up with better keywords, placing a planned SEO strategy, optimizing links and expecting things to happen overnight and all that happens is a slight improvement in your page rank. You might end up in page 3 or 4 of the search engine result page (SERP) and then no further and this even takes months of work achieving.

SEO is a slow cook process and takes a little effort in bringing the desired results. This can be improved if you focus on avoiding some common SEO mistakes.

Keyword Stuffing and Non-Keyword-Focused Content

Keyword stuffing is the process of inserting too much keyword for the sake of adding keywords. Such policies will be red flagged by the search engines. Too much keyword in the content will also affect the quality of the content to the reader. Keywords are an important aspect in SEO strategies and should be focused and targeted to specific content for better results.

Another mistake with keywords is that, not focusing on any keyword or topic. If your content is not specific and touches too many topics, inserting relevant keywords should be an issue. When you try to optimize for multiple keywords from diverse services it will yield no results and raise red flags.

Broken Links

A broken link is a hyperlink in your content that points to a dead page which is either removed or not points to the intended location. Overtime sites accumulate broken links and these become natural as sites get older. However this is a great nuisance from the visitor perspective. You are clicking on a link with the notion of reading what is on the other end and gets a 404 error. Google downgrades rankings of such websites. Hence regular checks of links are needed to keep the links under the tracker.

Not Using Analytics

Generating traffic is one use of SEO. But generating massive amount of traffic without conversion is of no use. Tools like Google Analytics can be used to monitor which phrases yield better traffic and which phrases yield better conversion rates. Analysing the trends can enable the SEO specialist to target the specific phrases in the website that return better conversion. The highest traffic generating keyword may not be the highest converted one (a generic keyword can yield better traffic with less conversion). Using tools like analytics is helpful in finding that unique phrase which may yield better conversions.

Not Optimized for Local Search and Mobiles

Pages which are not optimized for mobile devices will not reap the benefits of SEO. Recently Google has a policy to check websites for its mobile compatibility. A mobile incompatible website may not be accepted properly by a search engine. In the present scenario most of the searches are starting from a mobile device and hence the website should be mobile compatible.

Similarly local searches should also be optimized for better visibility around target demographic. A local business with global keywords may not yield desired results. Local keywords, phone numbers and address should be optimized. Services like Google My Business should be considered important and the website, address and contact information should be properly updated.

Design and Errors

User experience is one great factor which forces visitors to stick onto a page. An improper design, or grammar & spelling errors, or slow site loading speeds etc. will diminish user experience. A site with low user experience will also go low in Google SERPs. Slow loading images, too much ads, heavy JavaScript and CSS files, improper web format, all these minor factors indirectly affect SEO performance. Hence such simpler things should be corrected before the SEO strategy goes live.

The above are the very basic prerequisites every SEO should take extra care of and along with the tried and tested SEO techniques.
