Use tags correctly. Tags let you categorize your posts into different categories, which can then be searched by readers. Each of your posts should have two or three tags. Make sure you use the same words for similar posts (don’t have a “bikes” and “biking” tag, for example), and don’t give posts too many tags, as this tends to clutter up categories.
Make sure that you are not overusing any keywords, plug-ins, Adsense ads and images. Doing this will undo your hard work by earning you a flag from search engines. Make sure to write naturally in a way you would want to read.
Regularly post new content to your blog. In order to increase your site traffic and maintain it properly, you must always post new content. If new content appears infrequently, visitors won’t be motivated to come back to your blog. You should make an attempt to do a new blog post daily.

A blog can be an outlet for your creativity and individuality. Reaching for perfection is great, but don’t dwell on it. If you make a mistake, you make a mistake. You have a specific point of view that is all your own.
