Hello, guys what’s up? in this article, I am going to share with you some important techniques for a new blogger to get ranked higher. in search results. So I was brainstorming content the other day and I was trying to think of how I could share more beginner blogging tips with you guys. Because sometimes I feel like I share some of the advanced stuff. I don’t take it back to the basics. That’s exactly why I launched this blog about.
I thought I outline a short article so today I figured it would be fun if I talked about some simple things that you can do during your first month of blogging. Because when you first start your blog there is so much information out there and so much stuff that you have to do.
Some important techniques for a new blogger
If you want to grow your blog so what are just some things that you can do from the beginning to set up your blog for success? So I’m going to be sharing five things with you guys that I think you should start doing in your first month of blogging. I’m going to start with the basics because I don’t want to overwhelm you.
So the first thing you should do is set up your social media presence. Once you have your blog/domain/website you need to set up social media at the same time. It’s going to take you a while to actually design a website and get it ready for launch.
But while you are designing your website you need to make sure that you are setting up your social media presence on top free social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. But we’ll talk about Pinterest in a little bit.
So when you are setting up your social media accounts you want to make sure that it accurately reflects your brand and what you are trying to create with your blog. So if you are talking about one specific topic on your blog you should be talking about that topic as well across your social media platforms.
One important thing to remember is when you are setting up those accounts you need to be careful to set up the same name according to your website. So if your blog name is something unique and your social media accounts are with your own name or with a different name then It’s-going to be a little bit harder for people to find your content.
So what is content?
if you notice this website “BozBlogs” which you are reading a statement or article this is called content. and if you search for something on youtube you will find different videos that are actually called content.
So if you set up the same name of your social media accounts/profile and website it makes it easier for your audience to find you.
So next you want to create your content calendar. Now if you have no idea what a Content calendar is? It’s very simple. It’s basically just your schedule that tells you what blog posts are going out on what days. And within my content calendar, I also like to have a section that includes all of my ideas. It’s called consistency.
You are the one who will decide which content and when you will publish it. This is very important for beginners to create a schedule like daily, next day, or weekly depending on you. but you need to publish content regularly until getting success.
So your visitors will know that you publish every 3 days or a weekly single article. Where you tell your audience that a new blog is coming out in 3 days.

Ok, So you need to set up your blog on Google Analytics as well as on Google Search console to get ranked in google and get your audience information.
Let’s start with Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is going to be your place where you can tell how many people are visiting your website? Where those people are coming from? how long they’re spending on your website? and so much more information.

it isn’t that complicated honestly. Google will walk you through the steps on how to do it.
Now let’s talk about the google search console. Because I know a lot of people know about Google search console and it is the foundation for your SEO success.
By the way, if you don’t know what is SEO?
SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization”. That’s basically how you get found on Google. Google has an algorithm just like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, etc. You want to make sure that you are working with Google’s algorithms. So that you can appear higher in search results.
A lot of people want to appear first in the search and one of the important step that you have to do is, get setup with a google search console.
So how you will verify your property on the google search console? You simply need to enter your blog URL in the google search console and it will ask you to verify your website. So Google knows that your website exists. Google will know what pages to go through. As well as what pages their robots allow to crawl and allow to rank within their search engine results.

When you are a beginner blogger it is very important to include ads on your website from the first day. Your audience will see the ads and you will get some income from the beginning.
If you don’t have any ads on your website for months or maybe even a year. And then you randomly start including ads, your audience may get confused. or they may not like the format and they will visit your website anymore. So I would recommend putting ads on your website from the very beginning.
So your audience is used to it and you can start making money as soon as possible.
Then once you do hit a certain number of page views apply for google AdSense to get more income.
If you are serious about growing your blog from the very beginning it is very important to learn about Pinterest.
I’m going to talk about Pinterest. All the freaking time because it truly is a powerhouse especially for bloggers to drive traffic to your website. So if you want more traffic, more eyeballs on your website. If you want to start growing from the very beginning then learn more about Pinterest.
not only to create a Pinterest account but you need to learn how to SEO your Pinterest account? You will find different options on Pinterest like creating a board and pin a post etc.
So I would highly highly recommend you learn as much about Pinterest as possible. So you can start driving that traffic.
