In this post, I am going to talk about 8 blogging equations you must balance before you can become an authority blogger.
I’m sure you know what I mean by equation?
It is a chemistry term. The equation means to maintain a balance between two sides (Reactant and product).
Most people started blogging without any ideas about what they are blogging about, and along the way, they wither away without any result.
The most difficult thing about online business is to work for months and with no result, you begin thinking maybe something wrong with your niche.
Some bloggers are making thousands of dollars every month while some are making penny even zero after spending hours writing content, driving traffic and so on.
Why some are making money while others are not within the same niche?

If you want to get the same result, then read the below blogging equations and make sure you balance them.
9 Blogging Equations You Need To Balance Become Authority and Influential Blogger
Equation 1: Passion + Ideals →Niche Selection
The first equation is a reaction between passion and ideas that produce niche selection
Why this is important? If you are starting a business without any ideas, knowledge or passion for the business, do you think such a business can grow?
If you create a blog on how to play the piano and you don’t have skill and passion or even knowledge on how to play the piano, that means you won’t be able to write quality content that can solve visitors’ problems.
Except you hire someone to work for you if you are working on any niche without any passion and ideas.But not withstand it is very essential to work with the niche you can boost of if there are any questions you need to answer or want to render help for your readers.
Equation 2. Quality Domain + Best hosting →Quality Blog
When it comes to online business, a domain name plays a very important role and it signifies your company. Getting a quality domain is very important like .com.net and .org.
Does your domain name easily remember?
For example, betterblogging.com is preferred that makingsenceofcent.com. People should be able to remember your domain name. A short name is far better than a long name. What of Bloggingtip.com?
Where to host your website is also is another factor to consider. There are thousands of web hosting but some are better than others.
Equation 3: Design + Premium Theme + Plugin→Attractive Blog
Does your website attractive to your visitors?
Blog design is very important and it tells whether you are a serious blogger or not. Building a better blog requires a premium theme and plugins.
If you find it difficult to give your blog design, you can get someone to help you from Fiverr for just 5 dollars.
If you are a visitor, and land on the ugly website, how would you feel?
Give your blog a very attractive look, your readers will love it.
Equation 4: Quality Content + Promotion →Traffic
Everybody knows that content is the king, yes of course but quality content without promotion may not yield any result.
One of the best ways to expose your content to readers is to promote it through social media, email marketing etc.
Most people apply rule 20/80, which means 20 per cent content and 80 per cent promotion. But I do disagree with the rule.
In my own few, I think it should be 50/50. Taking more time to write quality content is very important, even if you promote content that adds no value, not solving the reader’s problem is like wasting time.
Taking 50 per cent of the time to write quality blog posts and 50 per cent of the time to promote it will bring in ROI.
Equation 5: Autoresponder + Converting Squeeze Page →List Building + Money
Now, you have taken your time to create a quality blog and write quality content. You need to capture the email of your readers to build strong relationships.
Two things are important, autoresponder software and squeeze page plugin. These are very important to succeed in list building.
You have heard the word “there is money in the list”. List building is not only to building relationships with readers, it is the key to generating more income by promoting offers through email marketing.
Equation 6: Onpage SEO + Offpage SEO →Search engine traffic
SEO is a great way to get search engine traffic if done properly without trying to game Google. One-page SEO has an impact on your website to rank most keywords. Off-page SEO refers to link building.
To get maximum results from a search engine, it is necessary to combine the two and follow Google instructions especially when it comes to off-page SEO.
Equation 7 : Facebook+ Pinterest +Twitter+ Google Plus → Social media Traffic
Social media is among the best ways to get targeted traffic and expose your company to thousands of people. Connecting with Facebook, Twitter, pinterest and Google plus will increase social traffic to your blog.
People will see you as an authority within your niche if you have thousands of followers.
Equation 8: Monetization strategy →Double Income
Are you just creating a blog for the sake or to make more income?
One of the easiest ways to convert your blog to money is to monetize your blog. There are many ways to monetize your blog and this depends on the niche in most cases.
Developing monetization strategies may increase your income. You can monetize your blog with Google AdSense, Affiliate products, writing product reviews, placing banners etc.
Equation 9: Connect with Influential bloggers→Authority
Influential bloggers are well known with a lot of followers. This can expose your business and gain more traffic if you connect with 2 or 3 influential with your niche.
One of the best places to connect with influential people is through social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
People within your niche will respect you and see you as an authority. They will be listing to you and also follow you if you give them a solution to their problem.
The road to becoming an authority and influential blogger is not as difficult but it requires little effort. When you are pursuing a goal, you don’t need to think about whether it is reachable or not but think about how to accomplish it.
Everybody has the desire to achieve great things in life. If want to become an influential blogger follow what those influential bloggers are doing, learn from them and spy on them will quickly give you ideas of what to do.
Balance the above blogging equation will help you to get a maximum result while your followers will see you as an authority in your niche.
Now is your turn.
