Blogger’s Nightmare: Wordpress Mistakes to Avoid for Newbie Bloggers!

As a new Wordpress blogger, if you ever felt that a few of your excellent posts did not generate as much traffic as it should have been, maybe there is a loophole in your work. Many a time, a blogger sets up his Wordpress account with confidence.

He previously might have done blogging, and hence, has a definitive idea of what to post. However, sometimes, bloggers end up making certain blunders, which probably they aren’t aware of.

Today, this article will shed some light on the uncanny Wordpress mistakes newbie bloggers make and how to fix them!

Let’s get started with the Wordpress mistakes!

#1 Using too many plug-ins

Wordpress is like a blogger’s paradise. With the number of plug-ins the site offers, bloggers tend to use too many of them. Now, sometimes, bloggers make use of faulty plug-ins which are not secure.

Additionally, plug-ins with poor coding open up a website for attacks like hacking. This can even break down a site and create other inconveniences.

When you are using a plug-in, first do your research and verify its’ safety. Apart from that, while using a plug-in, if you sense any discrepancy, deactivate the plugin and delete it.

#2 Not paying attention to security

The following negatives can follow without proper security measures -

  • Your website content writing or blogs can be affected unless your web software is secured using a firewall or anti-virus to protect it from computer virus.
  • Another threat is dangerous hackers tend to insert lousy spam links in sites which have good traffic, making them weak and susceptible to breakage.

To avoid making these Wordpress mistakes, create a back-up in case your website crashes and most importantly, use anti-virus programs.

#3 Ignoring proper SEO & not using Google Analytics!

In many instances, new bloggers aren’t aware of the importance of SEO-plugin. The whole point of SEO is to enable organic traffic to a website. So, if you’re a rookie blogger not using all-in-one SEO pack, or SEO by Yoast or the premium pack, it’s better to get it installed today.

Note: It is better to choose the premium SEO pack for targeting loyal organic traffic to your website.

Additionally, imagine wanting to top an exam but not studying. You wouldn’t succeed the correct way; so hoping for your website content writing to thrive without using Google Analytics is a big no.

Therefore, by using Google Analytics, bloggers can monitor their website traffic and note the number of visitors clicking on it. Additionally, it helps to find the most popular keywords which can help a page rank.

#4 Using free themes excessively

With 30% of global websites running on Wordpress, another mistake rookie bloggers make is using the free themes. Remember, if your primary focus is marketing, you might have turned a blind eye to the fact that thousand other small websites are using the same free themes as you.

Hence, no matter how authentic your blog posts are, you aren’t getting readers to click on your page.

The solution to this is to use a digital marketing expert or a web design company for getting you better innovative themes. Or, you can also opt for buying a premium Wordpress theme to give your page a lucrative touch.

Additionally, amongst other Wordpress mistakes, here is the most basic one –

New bloggers, in the chase to expand their site, end up posting duplicate content, which may be barely rephrased. This makes their page weak.

So, for getting steady-fast traffic, avail blog writing services from a leading content agency to make your Wordpress website authentic. Good luck!
