I am not promoting my content on social media, my strategy of blog post promotion is then depending completely on organic traffic. This has been the case sense the beginning, and so far it is working out okay. The thing about it though is that when I was first starting out, I was following a strategy that is like throwing a plate of spaghetti against a wall to see what sticks. Although that kind of strategy works, it is not very efficient. It is better to just know what will stick to begin with before I even start writing.
So at present I have a few posts that are preforming very well, and a whole lot that are not doing much of anything. To get my site to preform better I am just going to have to do gain a decent grasp on how to do keyword research effectively. This is something that I aim to improve on in the coming year.
2 - I aim to become passionate about what ranks, rather than writing about what I am passionate about to begin with.
So regardless if I like writing about phaser better or not, when it comes to driving traffic to this site, it is better to write about lodash. Or in other words, it is better to write about something that I am not passionate about, but will hopefully become passionate about it if it preforms well.
Now that this site is doing okay at least it is time to start scaling up. Of course that means more content on this site, but it also means updating existing content, and starting additional sites as well. When making a website what is really going to make a break a sites success is its content. People do not visit sites, and keep coming back to them because of the layout.
When looking over a lot of my older content I have discovered something, a great deal of my content is a little thin. I have over three hundred posts at this point, but many of them are around five hundred words or less even. I know that a longer post does not necessarily mean that it is a better post. However still with much of my content it seems like I could elaborate a whole lot more on things.
One thing I would like to figure out moving forward with this site, is a good over all plan with where I should be placing my focus. I do not want to wast my time any more.
So when it comes to writing blog posts for 2019 I will be trying out some new strategies and ideas when it comes to my process of how to go about writing and updating content. It might be a while yet until I get the hang of things when it comes to being a webmaster, but I think this is something that is worth while.
