When something happens in your industry, you must be one of the first to write about it. It’s easy to get left behind. Let’s take, for example, a sports event. Team A wins over team B and you decide to write a blog about it 2 weeks after the games ended. Guess what? You now have thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of stories all over the internet about exactly what you’re writing about. You’re competition also has search engine popularity over you.
Relevance is a big part of a search engine.

That’s just one component of what the search engine uses to bring sites to that user. You have to be on your “A” game. The other thing you really need to focus on is bringing new content to the table. Using keyword analytical software or programs, find the best keywords that go with your website. Next, find a search result with low competition and at least 1,000 searches a month. When you start writing your blog post, use that keyword or phrase as your title and write about it. Make it meaningful. Put your heart into it. You don’t want to use a phrase or keyword that has too many search results. Chances are, you won’t even compete with the bigger fish.
Once you have your visitors to your site, you need make sure that you’re offering them something that is relevant to the blog post that you just wrote. Whether you’re trying to make money from advertisements, affiliate programs, or physical products, it must be relevant. If you’ve gained your readers trust, they’re more likely to buy from you. This is why you have to love your readers. You may think it’s all about you, but it’s not. It’s all about your readers. It’s all about captivating them and intriguing them enough to finish going through your site.
