The site records its Million Hits on 14 January 2013.
Started in August 2009,Ramani’s blog reached half a million hits on 17 April 2012 and in ten months has reached a Million.
Two Simple Words W that can not adequately convey my feelings to readers.
I am informed by leading Bloggers that this mile stone is remarkable considering the time scale and the areas it covers.
“It is also good to see a single contributor posting with out guest blogs .”
On the other hand , my son says that I write my blogs by commenting on News item which are of interest to others any way, and there is nothing remarkable.
May be he is right.
But as I said earlier in my blogs under Pages that I started blogging not with the intention of getting Hits alone and that I wanted to be heard on subjects I love.
What have I learnt?
I am happy to begin with.
I can keep my self engaged and keep my brain active without allowing it to brood over silly things of day-to-day Life.
And yes, it gives me recognition in unexpected places.
The Counter was busy and there was a long queue.
After about ten minutes, a man came to me and asked me what I wanted and I explained to him my business,
” I think you are ramanan50, I am the Branch manager, please come to my Cabin and I will help you’
I went in and he told me he was a regular reader of my posts and asked me to write on Consumer information.
I was happy that I could be recognized purely on the basis of what I have written.
Last year I attended the Indi Bloggers Meet at Bangalore .
Let me tell you the average age of the group was 26!
And I was the oldest Guy around.
Some of them wanted tips.
I told them that I was not a professional writer but I promised I would give some facts I learnt once I reach One Million Hits.
Here are some things I learnt.
Write what you feel passionately about.
State your views how ever silly it might sound tho you.
Do not write to please by compromising your views,it shows in the long run that you are not true in your opinions.
Write on a subject on which you have a question or doubt.people are interested in learning the answers as much as you do.
Provide sources for your information and acknowledge.
Appreciate other bloggers when due.
If you find a good post, reblog them.
Tag the posts accurately, it comes with over a period of time.
The procedure I follow is. (how would I search/Google this information?)
Write naturally and do not force key words.
If you write naturally, key words will fall automatically.
Maintain a good text ratio- minimum 15%.
Check Recommendations from Woorank.
Write the Attributes in for Images.
Always provide an image,video relevant to the story.
If you have posted earlier on the same subject link it to your new post if it is not identical.
Other wise keep updating your earlier posts.
Avoid profanity and abusive language.
If you want to write NSFW, make it Private.
Link with Social networking sites like Facebook,Twitter.
Distribute the posts to StumbleUpon, Digg.
Post comments on News papers,participate is discussions /Forums.
Right now I can recall only these.
