Every newbie these days is starting out as a Blogger with the tech niche and so it’s obvious to say that technology niche is fully competitive. Each day, several hundreds of blogs are created on the niche “technology” and almost 70 to 85% of them are getting vanished after a few days. It is because the Blogger who’ve started the blog may have lost interest in updating his blog regularly or he has not tasted success with his new technology blog. There are several reasons for one to fail in tech blogging – no dedication, no frequent updates, no uniquity are a few.
Well, today I’d like to discuss a few points that can lead you to success with your new tech blog.
How to Make a Successful Tech Blog ?
Unlike the other niches, tech niche is somewhat different. You’ll have to dedicate completely to one blog as most of the technology updates are time-based and if you couldn’t update the news on time, then you’re out of the league. If you’ve only one blog and you’ve dedicated yourself completely to it, then you’ll have plenty of time to concentrate on it. In case you don’t want to leave your other blog, then hire someone to write for it.
The same (above) applies here. Regular posting is one good habit of a tech blogger. Try to stay updated on the latest trends, tech news, and popular magazines. Most importantly subscribe to the popular blogs in your niche. [Mashable, ThinkDigit, RRW, TNW]
I know what you’re thinking about! If we’re writing news covered by others, then how could we make it unique? You can make the content unique by adding your thoughts about the news by doing some research about the topic before posting it on your blog. Always remember to write in your own language (not mother tongue) i.e., create your own writing style and don’t imitate others style of writing.
While one part of making a tech blog successful is writing quality content regularly, the other part is to market it to the public. With Google’s regular changes to its algorithm, social votes have gained more importance in improving a blog’s search ranking. So, try to promote your blog on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ , Pinterest and several other social networking sites where users will engage more. Next, build quality backlinks by blog commenting and guest postings.
Make sure you follow all these steps and I’m sure you’ll taste your success in tech blogging no matter how many competitors you’ve but remember all you need to have is dedication.
