    • Content



    Content is the king. It is the content only which makes your blog goes viral. Your content must be very helpful and meaningfull for the readers.
    Always write content for helping others not for earning money. Help others, money will itself  hepl you. Always write content about which you are interested to write and also maintain 100% accuracy. Here accuracy means you should not make any grammer mistakes while writing your blog. You can use grammerly, a google chrome extension that checks your writing error in real time.
    You should also post some images in content for good looking. Your content should be written in a simple way that one should easily understand easily. 

    • SEO ( Most Important Step)



    SEO ( Search engine optimization) is way of optimising your blog/website in such a way that your blog/website ranks first on the google search engine. Thats why it is called search engine optimization. Better SEO only gives better ranking of your website. And better ranking of the search engines gives lots of traffic to your website.
    If you have written many post on your blog and you have very few traffic that means your blog and post both need a better search engine optimization.
    It is mainly of two types, first in on-page seo and second is off-page seo.
    SEO is the main factor for huge traffic on your website.
