Top tips on How to Keep your blog alive

  • Writing Unique Contents 
  • Updating previous post
  • Optimizing your blog post
  • Internal Linking of blog posts

Writing Unique Content: In the blog-o-sphere, there is a common saying that says content is king: Not just ordinary content but a unique content. In my opinion, I would say real content blogging depends on the uniqueness of your contents. Are your contents optimized for the search engines? Are they reader friendly? These questions are what I expect you to keep in mind when writing your contents. If those two are kept in mind, the No. 1 spot on search engines will be for you and I think you know what that means. More Organic traffic to your blog, more income flows to your bank account  if you really know how to monetize your blog/website.

Updating Previous Post: Readers shuns outdated post. It is necessary to always update your previous post so as to match the current situation. This act will always make your readers come for more as they believe they will always get new tips about a searched keyword(s).

Optimizing Your Blog Post:  It is necessary to also optimize your blog post so that it can be easily found on search engines. There are different in which this can be done. Use keywords in your post, Internal linking of blog post, Adding search description to a post, Adding no-index tag to an external link.

Internal Linking of Blog Post: This is when old posts are linked to new ones and vice versa. This act makes your blog readers stay on your blog for so long as they navigate from one post to another and definitely, reduces your blog bounce rate.

With constant practice of the above tips, I am very sure of your blog staying alive. I would also like to learn from you: Let's make this an interactive session..... Let me know your views

5 Top tips on how to select good domain names

Now, let's take this from this angle. After a long research on how to start your blogging career, you successfully arrived a very good conclusion. You got the Niche you think it's best for you to work on, you've decided if the free or hosted platform is best for you to start on and you've decided what design could suit your idea.

How to select good domain name tips

Doing the above mentioned tasks indicate you are ready to go live but wait, the most important and delicate task is not done yet: The Domain Name Selection. The Domain Name Selection is delicate in the sense that a wrong move can hurt your blogging career in the long run. Like one of my mentors will always say, "selecting a domain name is just like naming a newly born baby and for lifetime will be known by that name". The word "Lifetime" should be enough reason to clearly determine how to select a good domain name for your website.

5 top tips on how to select a good domain name

  • Using keyword(s) in domain name
  • Avoid using too long words
  • Domain must be unique
  • Domain name must easy to spell 
  • easy to remember.

Using keyword(s) in domain name: Domain name can be generated from keywords related to your blogging niche e.g orbastech. From the example, it's not need to be told that the particular website basically belongs to a technology niche.

Domain Name must be unique: Hope your domain name is not competing with that of authority blogs/websites? It can really hurt your blog as it won't do well on the search engines or rather, might get an official email from the authority website to close down the domain. So, you have to be unique in what type of name you choose.

Avoid using too long words: Using too long words in domain name are so disgusting that this only can make your blog readers neglect your blog. So, your domain name is expected to be short and precise.

Domain Name must be easy to spell: To avoid confusing your blog readers, words used in domain names are expected to be spelt accordingly. Imagine "class" is to be spelt but instead the writer wrote "Klass": the letter "K" was used in place of letter "C", imagine the confusion. Now, let's take a look at this, a friend called me to get a solution to a PC problem and immediately, I referred him to him to my blog: KlassTeck but instead wrote ClassTech, where did you think he's going to be headed?

Domain Name must be easy to remember: Remember that the blog-o-sphere is a competitive market. People hate to crack their brains to get url of a blog for one or two article(s) when there are other places to get the same article. You have to make your domain name as easy as possible so that it could be easily remembered.

The above mentioned tips are gathered by me on how to select good domain names, And I believe if properly followed, will have a positive impact on your blogging career in the long run. Suggestion from you on this topic will be highly appreciated.

3 Golden Ways to Get Blogging Ideas

The downfall of a blogging career is sometimes because of lack of Ideas from the blogger. Not being able to post reasonable or I say, unique contents frequently will make the blogger loose his/her hard earned traffic little by little. How do we get the Blogging Ideas? Today's lesson will explain how we can get blogging constantly as running out of Ideas will never be one of the reasons you stop blogging.

Fuel your Blog with rich Blogging Ideas

How to Get Blogging Ideas

  • Choose your favorite niche: Before you start blogging, it is advisable to choose the aspect you are good at: is it the blogger tips aspect, the technology review aspect, counselling aspect, marriage, how to make money online aspect, the health aspect and so on. There are many niches you could blog on. Explore yourself and know what you good at. If a machine lover starts blogging on health niche, imagine what could happen in two to three months. So, know yourself and ask yourself this question: what can I not do without? Do I always take my camera with me to take outstanding pictures? Can I blog this? Hell YES, you can. Since taking pictures is your favorite, I don't think you can never run of Ideas. Try this and see the magic.

  • After your favorite niche has been chosen and started blogging it on, satisfying audience should be one of the topmost things on your mind. What do they(Readers) want? Go to forums related to your niche. Explore pages on the forum and you will begin to start seeing Ideas. If you are tech blogger, you might see questions like this: How can I get Hotspot Shield Elite Version for free, How to unlock stubborn modems and so on. These are what the people out there wants. Write down the questions in your jotter, make researches on it, compile your answers and make a good post out of it. Isn't that simple? Try this and see the magic.

  • Use the Search engines: Do you know search engine like the Google gives you more and more ideas to blog on? The Google auto-completion of words does that I think. Have you ever tried to make some findings on Google, while you typed few keywords and it brings lots of related phrases for you to choose? Those phrases are Ideas related to what you want to make findings on. Write them down, do your researches, compile them and make a very good traffic-driven post.

The three above golden ways have really helped me in my blogging career. It could be of help to you too. All you have to do is try it, your dedication and patience are also few of the instruments of being a successful entrepreneur both online and offline.

Your Opinion on how to get Blogging Ideas are also welcomed for I believe no one is an Island of Knowledge.

Oops! Files turning to shortcuts? Get Help!!!

Files turned into Shortcuts solution finally simplified

Trojan, a name given to the virus that turns files/folders in a USB stick into a shortcut. Using USB has been one of the easiest means of transferring data since it is easy to use and the conveniency of carrying anywhere due to its portability. Recently, a friend of mine plugged in his USB on his laptop after he had used it on someone else’s. Surprisingly, all files and folders had turned into a shortcut.  The problem was solved and I think it’s worth sharing.

How do I stop this from happening in the first place?

  • Use a very good and updated antivirus.
  • Avoid collecting files in an unprotected computer system.
  • When downloading from the internet, make sure the file is secured. Always use virustotal to scan before downloading

Usefulness of this tutorial

  • It will save a lot of money
  • It will boost the security hormone of the computer user
  • It will save a lot of hard-gotten files from damage since some think the next option is to format the computer system.

Steps to remove the virus and regain back your files.

  1. Plug in the infected USB drive.
  2. Make sure Folder properties are made visible. Folder > Right Click> Properties>Check Hidden files.
  3. Open the task manager > Process Tab > End WSCPRIPT.EXE
  4. Now let’s go to the registry. Click onStart > Type in “regedit” and press enter. 
  5. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER and click, then click on Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Run
  6. A list will be displayed. Any file(s) that ends with .vbs should be deleted and also take note of the file location since the file will also be deleted.
  7. After it has been deleted from both File Location and Regedit, Run Command Prompt by typing “cmd” in start + Enter
  8. Now type in this attrib –h –r –s /s /d I:\*.* “ I:\” denotes the infected drive. Replace with your external drive alphabet… might be F:\ or G:\

Tested on Windows 7 and worked perfectly well
