What was your mental state just before you started a blog? umm… let me guess, you probably were excited! It’s not just you, most bloggers who are new in the field without much past experience get excited ahead of setting up their first blog. For those using a paid web hosting service, the result likely.
Last month, I changed the month and year based permalink structure of blogmetric to a simpler one based on just the post name. When I initially changed the structure from WordPress settings, I was quick to notice that old links were not working any more. With a quick .htaccess tweak, I was able to fix that and so far all my old URLs are 301 redirecting to the current ones. This was a lot easier to achieve than I had anticipated, and I’m going to show how you can do it too in this post.
Expert interviews can be a great way to acquire high-quality organic links. If you feel that you’re creative enough to leverage this, not only you’ll satisfy your readers, but you’ll also attract editorially given links that an infographic marketing campaign or a broken link building campaign might not be able to get you.
Your blog is a venue for your business to regularly and directly interact with your customers. You publish information that they find relevant and useful, and you get to build a direct connection with your readers. Setting up a blog is the easy part. How do you build traffic to your blog once you set it up?
