How to Write a Good Blog Comment and Bypass the Spam Filter in WordPress. Have you ever thought about what makes a good blog comment? Want to know of a sure-fire way to bypass the spam comment filter in WordPress? In this article, we will show you how to write a good blog comment and bypass the spam filter in WordPress. Comments are a great way to interact with the blogs you read. Most site owners love and crave comments. In their eyes, comments show that readers found their content engaging and useful.

Sadly, comments are now being used by spammers and bots as a promotional mechanism rather than a micro-conversation tool. Let’s take a look at how to write a good blog comment and get noticed. 1. Before you leave a comment, you need to ask yourself why do you want to leave that comment? Think out loud what you want your comment to accomplish before you write it. 2. It goes without saying that if you want to be heard and noticed, then you should be polite, respectful, and kind. Friends and good manners will carry you where money won’t go.– Margaret Walker 3. 4. 5. Blogs vaak niet meer dan bijverdienste.

Meer dan de helft van alle bloggers wil graag zijn brood verdienen met zijn blog. Dit blijkt uit het bloggersonderzoek dat bureau Cherry Picker uitvoerde onder 206 Nederlandse bloggers. De resultaten werden deze week gepresenteerd tijdens de eerste editie van het Cherry Picker #Storymakers event, waar ruim 130 bloggers en dertig merken bij elkaar kwamen. Iets meer dan de helft van alle blogs heeft minder dan 15.000 unieke bezoekers per maand. Ruim één derde trekt 15.000 tot 100.000 bezoekers per maand en zo’n tien procent meer dan 100.000. Van alle deelnemers bleek 85 procent vrouw te zijn. De passies van waaruit bloggers schrijven variëren sterk: van travel tot food, van design of architectuur tot sport en beauty. Bloggers willen graag samenwerken met merken, producten en bestemmingen, maar sommige zaken zijn een echte ‘no-go’ voor bloggers.

Hoewel de meeste bloggers hun blog als bijverdienste hebben, hoopt ruim de helft uiteindelijk te kunnen leven van hun blog. Saaie markt? Vijf tips om toch succesvolle content te realiseren. Je kunt op een slimme manier leads werven als je content realiseert in de vorm van blogartikelen, whitepapers en webinars. Dat is een stuk eenvoudiger als je in een ‘sexy’ markt werkt zoals bijvoorbeeld mode of reizen. Maar wat als je nu content wilt realiseren als je in een ‘saaie’ markt opereert zoals bijvoorbeeld kantoorartikelen of netwerkapparatuur?

Het goede nieuws eerst Het voordeel van een saaie markt is dat er ook vaak minder concurrentie is. Er zullen natuurlijk uiteraard concurrerende bedrijven aanwezig zijn in jouw markt maar door zelf regelmatig originele content te publiceren, onderscheid je jezelf al snel ten opzichte van jouw concurrenten en boek je daarom sneller succes. In dit artikel geef ik je vijf tips om succesvolle content voor een saaie markt te realiseren zodat je meer leads kunt gaan genereren. Tip 1: Los de problemen van je potentiële klanten op Wanneer zijn potentiële klanten bereid om bij jouw bedrijf te kopen? Tip 2: Gebruik tools voor content inspiratie. 6 Ways to Find Blog Topics When You're Stuck. You’re out of ideas. Everything you could possibly write about in your niche…. You already have. Well at least it feels that way. Even worse, your readers are expecting consistent content because that is what you have delivered in the past.

You’re paddling upstream, and the boat’s going nowhere. (Sometimes, when you stop paddling, it feels like you’re going backwards) The harder you try to fill your calendar with killer blog topics, the worse it gets. No blog posts = no site traffic = no business = back to the 9-5 corporate grind. What choice do you have? As a freelance blogger my bank account, and all those gorgeous shoes waiting for me on their respective shop shelves, depend on an editorial calendar packed full of kick-ass blog topics. Which, I admit, is hard.

At times it is pulling-my-hair-out-in-frustration-and-banging-the-laptop-screen hard. So, over time I have come up with a way to avoid these frequent bursts of non-productiveness. 1. I’m an avid eBook reader. Ugh. Voila. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 4 Secrets to a Professional B2B Blog Post. Writing is hard, and writing well is even harder. B2B companies are discovering this as they try to put content marketing initiatives into production. Companies realize that they need top-notch writing to attract an audience and then turn them into customers – this is especially true with their corporate blog. A B2B blog post should be personable yet informative for the B2B audience. It should be written well enough to keep readers coming back, and they should have compelling calls-to-action that help convert a reader to a prospect (and eventually into a lead, and then customer.)

That’s a lot of pressure for a simple blog article, isn't it? 1. A cliché is an idea or expression that has lost its meaning through overuse. Both clichés and adverbs are the mark of lazy writing. 2. By using the same language as your readers, you’ll notice that they keep coming back. 3. A B2B blog post isn't the place where you sell your products. 4. For the most part, keep your blog posts evidence-based. Help, mijn blog is gejat! Rust er auteursrecht op mijn blog? Mogen anderen mijn tekst en afbeeldingen overnemen als zij de bron vermelden? En hoe treed ik op tegen copycats? Veel bloggers zitten geregeld met de handen in het haar. Daarom even de feiten op een rijtje.

Mommy Blogger Crystal Paine Shares 5 Tips. How to turn your love for blogging into something bigger—a career, a moneymaking business If you’ve ever followed the mommy blogger phenomenon, you’ve heard of Crystal Paine.

Her site,, which she started in 2007 as a resource for couponing and deal-hunting, now averages 1.5 million unique visitors every month. Paine is a true work-at-home mompreneur, managing a brand that employs 17 team members and engages more than 750,000 followers—and that’s just Facebook. When I arrived at Paine’s home for an interview, she was busy working. She and her assistant chatted at their laptops as we set up. Soft-spoken and warm, she sat down to put on her mic and asked what would make the interview “a win” for me. I was taken aback by her generosity, and it is matched only by her strategic genius, which she obviously uses to build her ever-growing site.

Are you an aspiring blogger? 1. Like most, Paine started trying to make just a couple dollars a day off her online platform. 2. 3. 4. Why Bloggers Abandon Their Blogs Too Early [Video] Occasionally, one stumbles upon a stop-you-in-your-tracks statistic. For me, it was an IBM study that found 80% of corporate blogs contain fewer than five posts. If the study centered on personal blogs, I’d understand. But corporate blogs? Wow. For years, I’ve struggled with IBM’s stat. Then, during an internal project in which we analyzed the effect of publishing volume to traffic, it hit me: We concentrated our analysis on the immediate traffic a blog post enjoys.

This phenomenon must be frustrating, if not demoralizing, for corporate bloggers who need to prove they are driving results, and prove it quickly. The key to the argument is to turn the challenge upside down. Let’s have a look. As you can see in the video, it’s easy to see why bloggers who rely on daily traffic as their sole performance indicator would abandon their blogs quickly.

But a slight shift in perspective from daily traffic to cumulative traffic can reframe the decision entirely. How to Make the Most of a Great Blog Post. Effective blog post writing begins with epic post planning. Digging up keywords, crafting clever headlines, and sculpting your ideas into the proper shape takes time, and if you do it right, you could get great reputation management results.

And sometimes, you have ideas that are so great and so noteworthy that they garner you a lot of attention. Some might even go viral. When that happens, you have a big decision to make. A Quick Check of Blog Success Answering a few quick questions should help you to determine whether it’s time to rewrite or time to do some tweaking. 1. The average lifespan of a blog post is about 2 to 3 years. 2.

Pull up your metrics and look closely at your entry’s performance. But, if that post is still driving traffic, still getting comments, and still getting noticed, tweaking is your best bet. 3. If you’ve struck gold with content, it’s possible that someone else is taking advantage. 4. 5. Some blog entries come with a shelf-life. If You Must Start a New Blog Post.
