what bloggers must do

You are on this page because you’re running a blog or because you’re thinking of starting a blog or a website. A success of a blog depends on many factors such as the design, the subject also known as the niche but the most important thing of course is the popularity. You might have the most interesting or most beautiful blog in the world but if no one is reading it than it’s kind of useless. You might be running a blog simply for personal satisfaction and that’s fine, however I know that most visitors of the Extra Paycheck Blog and Podcast are also trying to monetize their content.

There are certain things that must be done to a blog (new or old) that we sometimes simply forget or not know about. In this episode of the Extra Paycheck Podcast I share 10 most important things when it comes to running a blog. We go from search engine optimization, to design, to social media marketing, to list building and quite a few other things. Without any more spoilers, scroll up and press the PLAY button to hear the full episode.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How to easily optimize your website for the search engines
  • Why you need Google Analytics and Search Console
  • How to optimize social sharing for your blog
