Top 10 Things That Can Hurt Your Blog

This guest post was written by Arie Rich, Editor of KMP Blog.

Blogging for two plus years I have played around with stuff to see what works and doesn’t for my blog. I have tried every item on this list and this has brought me to share with you the top 10 things that can hurt your blog in the long run, from a KMP perspective.

1. The Blogroll

I am not a huge fan of the blogroll. There are pros and cons about having one. One of the pros is that you can direct traffic to your blog if you are listed on someone else’s blogroll which can help increase your rank. The con is if someone’s rank is not as high as yours, having them on your blogroll could hurt your rank. So I choose not to have a blogroll.

2. Lack of Interaction with Readers

I believe blogger/reader interaction is a major plus. Simple ways to do this is by replying to comments left on your blog, as well as interacting via other social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, etc. The more interaction with your readers, you have the more loyal their readership will be.
