There’s days in which Muse is not your friend, and leaves you alone as if it was telling you 

“You’re on your own, deal with it!” If today is one of those days and inspiration is gone, don’t think everything is lost, because, there’s ways to help you create a good content even if you’re not inspired.


The mos important thing is not to feel overwhelmed, and over all you must search well, What can you do when you’re not inspired?

 

Cure Content

 

 

Of course you have your top 10 sites that you use as a pattern when it comes to writing an article. You can create a small recap with all the best news from each blog in a frequent basis, and you will be serving your readers with useful and interesting information. With this being said, you will be killing two birds with one bullet, you will have fresh content and up to date, and alse you will create a different post from the ones you usually do.

 

Ask your friends and followers



There’s nothing better than writing something interesting for those who read you, and when you’re missing inspiration you see all that your friends  followers and fans will like to read on your blog. Take a peak on to what is being talked about on social networks, Twitter in this case can be a great ally. Create filters related to the theme/subject of your blog and organize all the information that you see that is alike, then give a personal touch and make a post of your own with updated content.

 

Escaping traditional formats


There’s a lot of kinds of contents that you can do. Escape from the traditional post in which you show text with many images and jump into another kind of content, like interviews, blog collaborations, recaps, info-graphics, etc. A good content is the one that is done with love and desire, and of course, asking the collaboration of other bloggers so they comment and/or answer your questions as to any topic (interviews), this could be something that could fascinate your readers. Asides from these kinds of content, you must link each one of the bloggers you will interview , it will help you to get organic back links.

 

Create Content, even when you don’t need it


We can make researches on specific data that we would like to bring into our blog. We just need to be creative, original and knowing how to filter information. For example, conduct a study on to which kind of data would help your users. Write your thoughts on this topics, and give them your personal idea about it, of course using some “literature“, give an opinion about this data and you may come up with wonderful conclusions. In the end, what matters most, are your conclusions and your own examples, never forget this, don’t forget this.

 

Reactivate posts


Do you thing that once you make a post, you must forget about it, Not at all! Check those posts that worked better for you , read the content and look if you could turn it around adding  something else to the old content. This simple gesture will help you reactivate those old rusty posts so they continue to drive traffic to your blog, and those who just needed some updates or text or images, so they continue to be useful and read.

 

Do something to inspire yourself


Live through my words, you’re sitting in front of your PC and you don’t know what to write about. Minutes go by, hours go by and you still have nothing, not even a word. (*cough* fixes her throat) Excuse me, Do you think that by being there all sittin’ in your chair staring at the monitor real closely you’ll get something? Get UP and DISCONNECT  go for a walk, listen to music, read a good book, go see a good movie.


Breathe some fresh air so you can unplug and enjoy of these new ideas to feed your creativity, it will make you break the routine and you will for sure be back on your computer with another mind set and wanting to create new content.

 

You will have plenty of options when it comes to great ideas to create a great content, the most important thing for you to know how to keep a good blog updated, is not always pure original content. This post is a clear example that not too long ago we made a Blogging 101 for Rookies, and some more posts on content ideas!


Thanks for reading! Enjoy

Even though past year and a half, the Link Building has opened up doors to other ranking factors such as “Mentions” and social networks relevance, but it is still one of the basic pillars of any SEO strategy.

What has changed is the way that we must develop the Link Building Campaigns, if before you wouldn’t care much about how organic your links were, or anchor texts for a second, well Google is now keeping an eye on any suspicious M.O. that we could be engaging for these results. (That sounded so Horatio from CSI:Miami)

1. DIVERSITY AND EASE

Hand holding a glass ball with words

This is not something that I put in first place by mistake, these are two factors that we must insist the most, diversity and ease, becoming key factors to achieve success in any area of online marketing and link building, it couldn’t be less than that.

And with diversity i mean both link sources ( Forums, blogs, local media…) and the best way of getting this is with original content, even if it’s an image, a video, an info graphic or even a whitepaper; this way we will get true organic back links.

2. EVERGREEN CONTENT:

 

Evergreen content tag

We like to call this “green sprouts”, let me explain it better, this is content that does not devalues with time, even if months or years go by, it is still interesting and link-able as the day you published it.

And how do you get this? I always think of the list of strategies of Link Building from Point Blank SEO, shared over 4,000 times and with 409 domains linking to it.

But what is the first thing we need to do if we want to create Evergreen content, we need to avoid writting about current news or “Trending Topics” , this kind of content works well on short term, but it disappears right away; what is best is for us to focus in a doubt or a problem, for example : “Which are the best strategies for Link Building” and give a solution, but squeezing every detail into the article to help resolve the doubt/problem.

In EConsultancy, there is a great article about 15 ways to optimise your evergreen content strategy.

3. HAS TO BE SOMETHING WORTH SHARING

Putting it other way I would say, it has to be something that people is interested in and it does not necessarily needs to be a post in your blog. What I don’t mean to create something that will only link just beacause, but creating a video, a picture or a presentation that someone could later include in their own content, something that will be later claimed by you as a link, in  case they didn’t included it already.

 

4. NOT EVERYTHING HAS TO BE LINKS

Hand Shake

Meaning that even if it’s mentioned it may not link to our brand or our business in a post, but Google will relate immediately a certain kind of content to our brand, and our brand to our page, so don’t go crazy if someone does not link you properly.

5. THINK OFFLINE

 

Not all you do to make your online presence better, necessarily needs to be online. Any action that you do offline might result interesting people of your niche, and it could easily turn into news, as well as converting these echoes into links and mentions for you.

Let’s use as an example, you have a Design agency and you’re offering a free Photoshop course, with a bit effort on social networks you could spread the word about something a lot of people would be interested in, because you need to give (your followers something they can relate in real life), so you can get (the client’s loyalty, share, mention and recommendation).

6. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY LINKING YOU BACK

Wouldn’t it be more likely that someone who has already exchanged back links with you would do it again? Help yourself with theses guys to share and promote your content, if your previous content has been interesting for then, the chances that they link you again will boost importantly. Look in your link profile with a tool like Open Site Explorer to see who has linked to you previously and contact them.

 

7. INVITE BLOGGERS TO SUBMIT TO YOUR BLOG

 

Asides from the classic way of getting back links by guest blogging, invite other bloggers to publish in your blog, they will not only add variety to your content, it will make these bloggers give you relevance in social networks and will definitely link you in the future about they post they made for you, or even using any of your content as a link too.

 

8. BE CONSISTENT

 

Something very important to get organic back links is being constant when it comes to publish content. If too much time goes by between posts, (like we’ve missed out for a few weeks, but hey what can I say is not easy to work Web Development, Guilty!) your reades will start to forget you exist (Pretty please, don’t). Neither is necessary to publish every day, it is better to create quality content once a week than publishing something mediocre every day.

 

9. ADD VALUE

 

If you will center in Link Building in forums and blog coments, the only advise we will give you is to add value to it, and don’t just try to be slick and slide your link at all costs, and overall if these are links that have poor relevance to Google, relevant comments/posts will bring relevant traffic to your web.

 

10. UPDATE YOUR CONTENT

 

If in the past you’ve published something that’s been very successful, why not use that too?
Go through your most successful posts and try to update them, could be with new information or a new focus. If it has worked before, it is most likely to work again.

11. UPDATE CONTENT (FROM SOMEONE ELSE)

This strategy is very effective and useful. Using this tool to find outdated contentyou will be able to see which content has been created for a key word, you can also compare dates, in order to see if the subject is outdated, create the same content updated and contact the websites who originally posted it and suggest them to re-post it.
The best way to find this kind of content is finding any date in which there was an important change, for example, if your niche is Formula 1, almost every year between certain dates there will be new updated FIA norms or rules, searching in these specific dates it is more likely that you find them.
