MUST READ: Is Your Blog Actually Traffic Worthy?


A blog is a personal website of an individual or a group recording their own opinions, news, interests, videos or even links to other blogs. During the 1990’s, blogs are like online journals of a blogger’s interests with the aim to express oneself. However, nowadays, that is not the only game in the blogging communities; it can also be used as a part of a company, a way of business and to earn money.


Just 2 years ago, in 2012, in Wordpress.com alone, there are 42,000,000 blogs with 500,000 new posts a day and 420,000 daily comments. Which is why, to actually create something unique in the internet world is quite hard.

The question though, that stinks in every blog is— is the blog actually “traffic worthy”? Do the contents of your blog deserve to be clicked by people?

One major issue is the copyrights violation. This is when a person copies off a content of another one and to post it as his. Some bloggers discreetly post such just to have content. Originality, people, be original. It is not merely copy-pasting but you’re stealing. What is even more nerve-wrecking is that most of the time, the bloggers don’t even know if the content or the information they’re copying is actually true. This goes to many blogs nowadays, who just create “noise”, most especially in the news section unless of course, if it is a satire. Some people call the current journalism as highly biased without even knowing they are doing it themselves in their own blogs!

The next one is the scam sham- to which some people are still foolish enough to click it. One would post something online, promising something- perhaps a downloadable software, music, games or even explicit sex tapes or the classic “You are the 1,000,000th visitor. Collect your prize!” This is a cheat and smells desperation but goodness, it DOES work (well, to some people who haven’t learned a lesson anyway). If the traffic in your web page comes from misleading links, think about it a little, you’re the guy running for a place in the government promising good life but turns out to be a jerk.

The last one to be discussed is the never-ending-not-quite-original spam in the comment boxes. These are those comments which say, “Good Article,” or “Nice one,” Then pastes the link of his blog. Oh sure, did you even read the article? Even in Youtube, where vlog (video blog) are quite prosperous have these comment spams. Most bloggers are better off without those. Actual discussions of the article are quite rare nowadays which tells something.

Whether or not a blog is traffic worthy is a subjective matter. But the thing is, wouldn’t it be nice if you search keyword/s on Google, Yahoo or Bing, you’d actually see a blog worth reading? Is your blog traffic worthy? It is up to you to vote.

How to Use Facebook, Disqus and Blogger Comment tab Together in Blogger Blogs

As writers of  blogs, we all are aware of the importance of comments. While it is true that some blogs/websites tend to disable comments entirely, those are special instances where the websites do not essentially require comments. However, in general, comments form an integral part of any blog, be it a personal one or a magazine site. After all, what good is any info unless it provokes a healthy discussion?

All blogging platforms (including WordPress) come with native support for some sort of comment mechanism which seems to suffice for most bloggers. But sometimes, users may require some dedicated or specialized comment mechanism. This is where third-party commenting systems come in handy.

FIXED! Adsense Ads not Showing in Homepage of Blogs or Website

Problem Solved! have you experience your Adsense ads not showing on homepage? Ads are showing on other pages except for homepage, well just this week I had a hard time figuring out why my ads are not showing in homepage.

I have another blog that is using Adsense ads. After a day of fixing almost all my template errors still the Adsense ads are not showing so I tried to search for it on internet.

Some forums will tell you that it is about updating your privacy policy pages, well I did that also but there's no effect.

The solution is very simple just navigate to blogger setting or wordpress seo settings. I'm focusing on blogger since my blog is in blogger platform.




Go to Blogger settings ->> Search Preferences->> Enable search description. Click yes then put your sites description and save. That's it! reload and see the magic :D
