1- Content is king no doubt, but I think only INTERESTING CONTENT is king.

2- Try to write long articles, 500+ word count is good.

3- Decide an interesting & descriptive blog post Title with keyword inside.

4- Use sub-headings in your article, To highlight important paragraphs. H2 & H3 are good to include in posts.

5- Highlight your article’s important points by keeping the words bold or italic.

6- You can write important things in colorful text.

7- Include a link to your archives relevant/related blog post in the first & last paragraph.

8- Upload images with proper name. Don’t upload with “DCIM 686” kind of image name.

9- Caption your images properly in the blog post. Tell others whats the picture is about.

10- ALT text description is an important factor to attract search engines traffic.

11- Keep your blog’s first & last paragraph of the article more interesting.

12- Make your photography clicks more fine & attractive.

13- Blog images size should not be bigger than 150kb or within 800px, A huge picture might slow your blog page load time.

14- Watermark images with your blog name or address, otherwise its sad to see your work stolen.

15- Blog images should be saved with a keyword in name, So they will be visible via search engines.

16- Edit & design your blog images according to social media sharing, If an image is properly broadcasting the article, then it will be getting shares which will be driving more traffic from social media networks. Social media is powerful tool. Be active there. By updating regularly, you can get additional traffic.

17- Social media engagement can help you getting more readers & followers.

18- Comment on other craft blogs, follow them & appreciate others.

19- Use hashtags while sharing at social media, New people will find you via hashtags. Would you believe VegasNay & ZuneraSerena commented on my instagram several times? She is not following me but I think she found me through hashtags.

20- Facebook groups for bloggers can help in promoting blogs.

21- Pinterest is amazing for getting ideas & sharing your ideas & work, be sure to active there.

22- Instagram can help you getting customers & clients as well as sponsors for the blog! Yes..

23- Twitter popular hashtags can help you finding new trends & people.

24- Share your every new blog post at you social media networks, Put the URL of blog post there with related hashtags.

25- Google+ can send some genuine readers from search engines.

26- Your blog should be having social media sharing option, So if a visitor liked the article, they might share with others. Don’t disappoint them by not having this opportunity.

27- Keep links to your blog social media networks, This will be helping your readers to connect more.

28- Under the article, Be sure to have your archives posts thumbnails, Don’t dumb your wonderful archives as they get older.

29- Blog sidebar is a great place to display your most appreciated work or achievements.

30- Welcome your blog readers with a friendly About Me information.

31- If you are at blogspot, keep a Follow widget at sidebar, People who follow you through Google friends connect are the most genuine & regular!

32- WordPress & other blog platforms can have a follow widget or email subscription option.

33- Always reply to your blog commentators, If there is something weird then you can skip replying.

34- Comment back those who drop sweet comments at your blog. This is the best way to socialize at blog land.

35- Don’t have difficult captcha & options for those who want to comment under your article. Use the easiest way! So you will see readers response!

    Hi! I just found your blog via Sarah Celebrate’s Two Uses Tuesday link up :-)
    I have been applying most of these tips for a while now, and yes yes yes watermarking pictures is a must. I had a lot of my blog picture stolen, even with the watermark. But at least with the watermark still on, my name is still out there and there is a chance that someone will google Home Cyn Home and find me. There is also less f a chance of the picture being used commercially.

    • Khadija's Creative Mind

      November 25, 2015 at 8:47 am

      Thank you for visiting CYN, You are always welcome at my blog :)
      Exactly, watermarking is for our own good.. it doesn’t hurt SEO thing but its for safety of our creative work! I am sorry to hear about your experience, when people will learn ethics of blogging? I faced this issue in past when my work stolen several times, So I started doing this. I personally dont like watermarking images though.

      • Cyn

        November 25, 2015 at 2:38 pm

        I hate watermarking images too, though since I use Photoshop I can at least make them semi transparent and while still fully visible they blend better with my photos and style. I keep wonder when will people start learning about copyrights and blog ethics too, or better yet, stop thinking that Google is that one big free photo database they can use at will :-(

        • Khadija's Creative Mind

          November 25, 2015 at 3:53 pm

          Indeed dear.. But seeing your effort stolen is the worst feeling as well. it’s strange to see others doing this smartly! Don’t know when these folks will grow up..

    Great tips. I try to do most of those. It’s finding time for some of them, especially social media and Facebook groups, that’s the challenge. When life gets crazy those seem to be the first things that get neglected. #sitssharefest

    • Khadija's Creative Mind

    These are great tips, especially the one about the captcha. I won’t even comment on blogs that have them, because I always get them wrong, and then I have to type my comment again. It’s just not worth it to me.

    • Khadija's Creative Mind

      November 28, 2015 at 6:02 pm

      Indeed Jessica, captcha is such hectic option, I avoid commenting those blogs who are having captcha! An easy comment form always get more comments & shares! Thank you :)

    Thank you for sharing…

    These are really *easy* tricks creative Khadijah.

    The tip about watermarking images is a great one because plagiarism is so wide spread now online – one’s creative effort can easily get stolen by simply copying and pasting.

    • Khadija's Creative Mind

      November 29, 2015 at 8:10 am

      Thanks Amina for appreciating my effort, its basically my own experience while blogging. Some folks are used to steal my work a lot, they copy & paste my hardwork & its really sad to see them doing this stupidity.. I dont know when people online learn the ethics & manners.. sb se zyada chori yehi apny pakiz krty hyn.. kitni galt bat hyna..
