Reasons why I would leave your blog

Photo credit: anitapatterson from morguefile.com
To 'secret' to blogging traffic is to create a environment so that your reader can't leave you. It's better to have 10 returning visitors to your blog than 100 'peace out' visitors. There are some main reason and mistake done by new bloggers that makes most of your visitor to say good-bye. If you want to be a serious blogger you should start thinking about them rather than yourself. Here is my list on why I would leave your site/blog.


Unclear content

If you are writing about something you should know what your are writing on, don't act professional on something you don't know. The main element of a blog is it's content. You have to fix this before anything else. Make your content clear, right on point, easily understandable and fresh. And of course original. If your information is wrong or content is unclear it creates a huge negative impression on your reader which is almost impossible to delete with every cool design and offers you have for them. and make him/her click the back button.

Too much eye catching

If you have the right content you should start worry about your template and widget. Eye catching is important but it has to be professional. Some template are very poorly designed and completely unrelated to what readers are reading. Unless it's a personal blog your readers would be happy to hear the loud auto-play of your favorite song. Don't use too much gif/ flashy content, mouse effects or any other funky script that would make you visitors ask-"where's the bathroom?"

Advertising hammer

Well you heard somewhere online that you can also make money by blogging so you signed up for all the advertising sites. Since nobody seems to click on them you put a load of them, some pops up, some starts talking, some jumps on the screen and many other extra ways to earn some extra. If you think that's a right method think why your reader would come to your site, for your content. And if they can't get the information they wouldn't be interested on what is going on around and just click the close button. Limit your ads and if you have right content and template you will start get more clicks on your ad than hammering them on the head before.

Needy baby

"Pay 2 dollars to read the article on secrete to be cool"-sounds great deal right? Here's another one -"Register To view the article" or you can also use "Finish the surveys to see the article"to make your visitor run away. Don't expect too much from visitor, each one will not give you 10,000 dollar for you blog. Since there are billions of article on almost every topic online it's your job to keep your reader to you, they can find billions of the same article online, so if you find one don't ask for too many things right after they enter the door.


Unless it's a personal blog, when people looks for a certain information they expect your blog to be on the same topic. Even if the reader finds one of your article helpful he wouldn't come back because he/she doesn't know if your future post will be on the same topic your client need information in or interested. It's important to keep your blog in one certain topic. If you get one visitor for one of the post you will get a returning visitor who will like your future posts. So don't make your blog random because it's only good for stalkers.

I would leave your site/blog for mainly because of these reason. I didn't mention some obvious reasons black hat techniques and spamming, cookies, malware etc. Try avoiding the things I have talked about to gain trust as a new blogger and get you readers to follow your blog. What are some of the reason you would leave a site/blog tell us in the comment below.

What is nofollow? How should you use nofollow?

Nofollow is the latest HTML attribution to stop the spammer to get free page-rank by Google. It stops the page rank flow from going to sites you choose. But that would be pretty odd thing to do when linking to someone by telling them they are not trustworthy. You should definitely start using no follow tag if you don't want to mark yourself as a spammer to Google. There are lot of confusion about how you should use nofollw tag to keep yourself safe; so in this article I will discuss what is nofollow tag, how to use it,  what is it's purpose and concerns.


What is nofollow

"Nofollow is a value that can be assigned to the rel attribute of an HTML a element to instruct some search engines that a hyperlink should not influence the link target's ranking in the search engine's index. It is intended to reduce the effectiveness of certain types of search engine spam, thereby improving the quality of search engine results and preventing spamdexing from occurring."

Since links are ranks. This extra attribution rel="nofollow" tells google not to follow them, where the dofollow flows the rank to the following site.

How to use nofollow

Example of a normal link

<a href=”Your URL”>URL TEXT</a>

Example of a nofollow link
<a href=”Your URL” rel=”nofollow”>URL TEXT</a>

It doesn't make any difference to link to a site but it is different to Google on how he consider the link.

Where to use nofollow link/purpose of nofollow

If you are linking to hundreds or thousands of outward link you should start using nofollow tag, if you link to low rank page in normal linking you loose 'some' pagerank. It's time to figure out what site deserves the rank. But if you are following everyone giving away free ranks, Google will spot you as a spammer. Sites that are not trustworthy, paid links and anywhere you don't want your site to link in search engine publicly.The main purpose of this attribution is to stop spammers although there are many opinions on if it actually can serve it's purpose.

Where not use nofollow?


No follow is to stop spammer, you are not one of them. When linking to your own site (internal link) you definitely should not nofollow them. This doesn't mean you can link all 50 site you own. Only internal links from your site are safe to use without nofollow. There are only few exceptions but mostly you are free to dofollow (normal links) all the internal link.

So should I nofolllow all my links?

Sites such as Wikipedia completely nofollowed their content due to the increased number of spammers. Many webmaster goes completely goes against the idea of nofollow and others with it. Google's head of webspam team Matt Cutts discussed the question on YouTube.

Also the answer wasn't clear, my understanding are following- you should use both normal and nofollow link. Nofollow all seems noprolem but it definately isn't a good image for your website. Also nofollow all the links concerns search engine about where you 'link' to.

What is blogging?

Your blog or web log is your won online space to share your thoughts ideas and information. But if you want to take those ideas and information in a new level so that it finds a fair amount of reader, you should consider following some 'rule' to make your blog stand out. The more professional your blog will look the more chances of you getting more ‘loyal’ readers. I will write a series of short articles on each topics to start your journey on blogging.
Although the first thing that comes in mind for start blogging is to find a good blogging platform, this article will mainly focus on the base idea of blogging. But just to point fingers the best blogging platform right now you can use for free are either Blogger or Wordpress. But the ideas for all platforms are ‘blogging’ that's what actually matters.

Some great articles on pros and cons of blogger platform

What is Blogging?

    Blog is short for web log. It’s you won little space online. You can connect to other people by spreading your thoughts, ideas, experiences, information rumors and pretty much anything you like. It’s your choice what you want to put into your blog and that chooses who you want as your audience. Check out the video for better understanding on 'blogging'. The more you know about your base the better it is for you success later on.

    Do you really want to be a blogger?

      Blogging is one thing that if you want to success in, you should never stop writing. The more you blog, you learn about your skills, improvements and also notify bots about the importance of your blog. It is always your choice why you want to blog and how you want to blog. But if you see no point of writing and sharing, blogging just might not be for you. And you must have courage to write regularly. And if you have heard about dream stories to earn thousands of dollar just by writing anything out there-you now know what are scam what are not. Choose first if you actually want to blog or not because it’s a rather difficult (easy) process to create a successful blog. Otherwise it’s just waste of your valuable time.

      Focusing on one topic

        Now if you choose to blog, you need a focused an basic idea on what you are going to write about. It can be anything you want but you have to have good passion or experience on it. It can be about gardening, rockets, new technology or anything you are interested in. Even if you like quantum physics and know nothing about it is possible to write and create a successful blog on it but chances are very low. It is important to focus your blog on only one topic. It can be a broad topic but it should flow in one direction in order to keep your reader focused. Writing about random things are not a good way to get a single targeted audience. And your audience wants certain type of news/solution and it is less likely someone will follow your blog for that one post. Thinking about what you-as a audience would like, is the main idea for creating a good content and/or blog.It is very important to write about one topic unless you have a broad audience ready for you.

        Follow our blog for next series. Also be sure to leave a comment on what you think about the topics for today.

        How to check who is not following you back on twitter

        For personal twitter account, just out of curiosity or for SEO masters to build and redict their traffic it is good to analyze your twitter following data. In this post I will show you a tool that can do exactly that. Using this twitter app you will be able to see all the Twitter user you follow and status on if they follow you or not. In addition to that you can also choose to follow or unfollow a user right from there. It also shows the mutual friends list. This app is simply called Twitter karma.

        Follow the simple steps to check the app out

        Log in to your twitter account
        Confirm to allow the app to access your data by clicking Authorize app
        Now click on the button that says 'Whack!'
        It will take several minute for the result to come up, (if it doesn't come in 5 minute hit reload) Once it does you will be able to see who is following you and who is not, you will also be able to follow and unfollow from there.

        Hopefully this might be helpful to some twitter user. If you have any thoughts leave them below.

        Show Widgets Only in Homepage or in Post Pages

        Once you activate any widget, in your blog, it will be displayed in all the pages by default, including your homepage.
        But sometimes, we do want to show some widgets only on Homepage or only for the individual posts pages, or only in a specific page, the coding is quite simple, but you need to customize the widget through the "Edit HTML" link in your "Layout" section.

        Follow these steps:
        Create any widget, and place it where-ever you want, and save the template. Check if it is working (should be displayed in all the pages). Remember to give a TITLE to it, like Archives/BlogRoll/Maps/Clock, anything unique.

        Now go to "Edit HTML" page.
        Click/mark "Expand Widget Templates"
        Then find for that unique Title (by searching through CTRL+F method)
        It will be something like this:

        <b:widget id='HTML3' locked='false' title='UNIQUE WORD OR TITLE HERE' type='HTML'>
        <b:includable id='main'>
        <!-- only display title if it's non-empty -->
        <b:if cond='data:title != &quot;&quot;'>
        <h2 class='title'><data:title/></h2>
        <div class='widget-content'>

        <b:include name='quickedit'/>

        Now tweak this as follows

        CASE #1
        To SHOW the code/widget only in HomePage

        <b:widget id='HTML3' locked='false' title='UNIQUE WORD OR TITLE HERE' type='HTML'>
        <b:includable id='main'>
        <b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
        <!-- only display title if it's non-empty -->
        <b:if cond='data:title != &quot;&quot;'>
        <h2 class='title'><data:title/></h2>
        <div class='widget-content'>

        <b:include name='quickedit'/>

        CASE #2
        To SHOW the widget in "All Posts", but NOT in HomePage

        <b:widget id='HTML3' locked='false' title='UNIQUE WORD OR TITLE HERE' type='HTML'>
        <b:includable id='main'>
        <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
        <!-- only display title if it's non-empty -->
        <b:if cond='data:title != &quot;&quot;'>
        <h2 class='title'><data:title/></h2>
        <div class='widget-content'>

        <b:include name='quickedit'/>

        CASE #3
        To SHOW the widget in any particular page

        <b:widget id='HTML3' locked='false' title='UNIQUE WORD OR TITLE HERE' type='HTML'>
        <b:includable id='main'>
        <b:if cond='data:blog.url == "SPECIFIC_BLOG_POST_URL"'>
        <!-- only display title if it's non-empty -->
        <b:if cond='data:title != &quot;&quot;'>
        <h2 class='title'><data:title/></h2>
        <div class='widget-content'>

        <b:include name='quickedit'/>
