Top 10 Blogging Mistakes: Do You Make These Blog Mistakes
Just one of these blogging mistakes can keep you from reaching the $10,000 per month level. How many blog mistakes have you already made? Let’s fix it!
First and foremost, if you have not yet started your blog you are making the biggest mistake of all.
Staying stuck in analysis and being paralyzed by all of the options is the biggest reason why new bloggers fail… They never even enter the race.
If this is you, today is the day that you need to start your blog and I have a free tutorial here: https://www.milesbeckler.com/how-to-start-a-blog/
Whether you are making these mistakes or not, as long as you are in motion and you are actively blogging, you’re on the right path.
With this video you will be able to identify the most common mistakes bloggers make and fix them so you can grow faster than your competitors.
Don’t think this video is just for new bloggers or beginners… I see many advanced bloggers who have been at it for years making several of these mistakes.
Which means you will get a competitive advantage by carefully paying attention through this video and making sure you don’t have these errors on your blog.
The first mistake most people make is spending time and energy on the layout, branding, homepage or theme in the early days…
It often takes six months or longer to gain enough trust with Google that you will start to receive noticeable amounts of traffic.
On my recent affiliate marketing case study site I built in 2020, I shared exactly how much time and how any blog posts it took to start getting traffic. You can watch the case study here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kudzqVLqrL0&list=PL0sOKzn__yK293vkj2OHzm1rlnTT1WCnh&index=2
This means that in the first six months of your blog the number one (and only) goal should be publishing new extremely high value blog posts.
Focusing on the layout, the branding, etc.… This is distracting you from the real work that moves the needle on your blog.
The second mistake new blog builders make is not doing the right keyword research…
I have many videos that teach keyword research for bloggers here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOou986Tk1E&list=PL0sOKzn__yK1kcevy9MZq5uBZyQKa487N&index=2
The next mistake is forgetting that your audience is the number one most important person in the world… To me bloggers are thinking about themselves and only do what is in their interest.
Bloggers who are successful focused more on their audience.
Choosing too broad of a niche for your blog is another common mistake I see. These free trainings here will help you choose a profitable niche for your blog https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCgnh5pO9gQ&list=PL0sOKzn__yK1YUCrFk8wWta3l8PzxCO4n
Many bloggers forget the importance of building an email list or simply use a “subscribe to my newsletter” call to action.
This is not enough and you must create a proper lead magnet and build out your blog sales funnel to capture email leads efficiently.

The final mistakes that many bloggers make our choosing a blog on a third-party platform like medium, putting too soon or consuming more content than they create.
As a blogger your job is to publish helpful content as often as you possibly can. There is no time to watch videos!
The time is needing to be 100% focused on researching, writing, editing, improving and publishing epic blog posts that your audience will love and are SEO optimized for Google.
