How long should your article be and why?
Answer by Mangesh - Here, I don't believe in a long articles or on word count. The thing that matters is in-depth knowledge in blog posts and satisfying the search intent.
If you can complete the intent in 500 words that there are no benefits of making that article of 1ooo+ words. So rather focusing on word count, focus on search intent, and in-depth article.
Answer by Robin - Article length doesn't matter to me . I write as much long article as the user can understand . Instead of lengthening the article, I thought of creating friendly user articles . Google also want user-friendly article rather than long articles
When will you start making backlinks and why?
Answer by Mangesh - After producing some quality content I start creating backlinks because without content if I start creating backlinks then they will not give any benefit to my blog.
Initially, I start with profile backlinks and social bookmarking to increase my site visibility in search engines. After that, I will focus on Guest Post, Blogger Outreach, Haro link building, and other powerful ways of creating quality backlinks.
Answer by Robin - I make backlink a few days after posting the article. When the article starts appearing on the second or third page, I start creating backlinks for that article to get it to the first position
How many articles will you publish in a month?
Answer by Mangesh - Again it depends on niche to niche. In my blogging niche, I publish 3 to 4 articles in a month. But if you look at a job niche site or news site then you have to publish 3 to 4 articles per day.
Answer by Robin - according to niche. if it's a news or tech type's website then i have to post articles continuously. on some niches 2-3 posts is enough. it's according to Niche
What will you do to rank your articles? (Let us know in detail)
Answer by Mangesh - Initially, I look at the top 10 sites that are ranking on the first page. after analyzing all of them I am creating more powerful content from that top 10 sites.
After publishing the article, I provide as many social signals I can provide to that article. Social signals also help in ranking. If social signals don't work then I create high-quality backlinks that definitely work.
Answer by Robin - First of all, after searching for the keyword, I try to make that keyword attractiveI use some strategy to get the article ranked. I do on page SEO as well as possible. I look for long tail keywords so that will rank easily.
I write the first paragraph in such a way that the user gets to know the entire post. I look for excuses for internal linking but in user friendly way and more basic On page SEO technics. In off page SEO.
I leave the 2-3 days after posting articles to article comes to their actual position . After that, if the article needs an update, I do. then i'll focus on powerful backlinks according to difficulty
Suppose if there is no traffic on your blog in 6 months, then what will you do?
Answer by Mangesh - Then I simply change my strategies and if that also doesn't work for me then I will leave that blog because that is not my cup of tea. This is fact that you can't get success on everything or on every blog. Mark my words.
Answer by Robin - I don't like to work hard that's why I work on those topics on which I can rank with full confidence. I don't trust tools like ahrefs etc completely but still get an idea from them.
For example, if Difficulty is 50+ and I feel that I can use any strategy to rank top, then I definitely work on it. And if Difficulty is less than 10 but any website or article ranking on top that is difficult to beat, then I do not work on it
