Don't use excess plugin, it kills:

One of the easiest ways to kill your blog slowly is by implementing plugins after plugins after plugins on your blog.

Plugin helps our blog run smoothly and easy without stress, but too much of it kills the speed of your blog.

Too much of plugin install can make your host provider shutdown your blog due to high CPU usage.

Too much of plugin can make your hard-earned traffic go away and search engines leave your site and never come back.

You'll frequently get error page if you install many plugins on your blog...

Normally, plugin don't have maximum dose - but it is advisable to install not more than 15 plugins on a blog. 15 installed plugin can help keep up the speed of your blog and remember that search engines love sites that are fast.

Only Blog what you truly know

I have been to so many new blogs that only copy, paste and publish other blogger's articles. If you are that blogger who only copy other bloggers works, I am sorry that you have already failed. You can't make it in the blogging work...

To make it in the blogging world - I'll advice you to do research properly on the niche you want to blog about so you won't have to copy other bloggers work. Or you can simply teach what you truly know and have full knowledge about.

Plus you can easily help someone with the perfect solution when they approach you.

Watch all successful bloggers you know, they all are into the niche they truly know about. Why not you do the same?

Be unique

Somebody ask me - "Babanature how can a new blogger drive traffic to their blog?" the first step I told him to take was to be unique. Why? Because if your article is not unique and you try to drive traffic to it, yes you will get the wanted traffic but you will have a high bounce rate.

Having a high bounce rate, with time, your blog will be swept off search engines and that is bad. Trust me; no blogger wants their blog not to show on search engines.

If your article is good enough, your readers will definitely read the article no matter how lengthy it will be... and the sweet part is, they will click-through your recommended posts because they love your article.

Use images that actually go with the post

There are some new bloggers that would ask me to check out their blogs for correction. After checking their blogs I'll see that many don't use images on their blog posts and some that does, abuse it.

What makes a blog post even more interesting is when your post and the images you attached to are similar.

Some readers fall in love with the images you use and some might pin them or share them just to show how impressed they are.

If you are not into tutorials or photography niche, please don't fill your blog post with images, why? It will only make your blog look stupid and the images will drag your server. Even Google kick against such acts

Make your images simple and in line with the post - one image or two images are very much okay and advisable to give your blog that flavor 😉

Make proper research before writing that great post

You wrote a catchy post that got few eyes looking your way. But, the funny thing is, you can't answer questions thrown at you because you did not make proper research before making such post.
