How to Create a Blog? Step-by-Step Guide for Newbies

Starting a blog is a simple way to create reliability for your brand. A blog is an outstanding way out for personal fulfilment if you are a promising writer or have an interest you desire to document and share with the rest. Despite that, there are definite approaches you require to create a blog. Hence, we have produced complete step-by-step measures for newbies to begin their journey. We will discuss choosing a niche for a blogging platform for publishing content and advertising your blog. Creating a Blog - Basic Measures In the forthcoming portions, we will break down each step for creating a blog on basic measures and best practices for newbies. 1. Choose your Blog topic or Niche A niche is a certain topic that your website will concentrate on, it's essential in deciding your target audience. A compatible blog niche will help you choose an ideal blog name and develop a focused blogging strategy. Examples of blog niches are books, travelling, food, and photography. When creating your new blog, it could be enticing to cover an extensive range of blog ideas or topics. Despite that, attempting to master too many subjects is complicated and often unjustifiable. Examine your hobbies and interests or topics you want to explore. Then choose your topics more specifically. If your interest is in food, try concentrating on a particular cuisine like Chinese, North American, or French. A compatible blog niche will help you choose an ideal blog name and develop a focused blogging strategy. 2. Choose a niche that has audience capability Your primary topic should have prior interest to ensure a target audience. Use Google Trends to check the search volume of specific keywords related to your niche. This helps you identify trending topics and understand which content generates more engagement. 3. Select an Appropriate Blogging platform Once you have selected a niche, it's time to start preparing a website for your blog. Blogging platforms are separated into two categories: hosted, and self-hosted. Hosted platforms are like all-inclusive blogging platforms. They usually show up with all the tools required to create a blog. Additionally, there is no need to buy hosting and domain names from a third party. On the other hand, self-hosted platforms require you to purchase hosting solutions individually. These platforms are typically called CMS (Content Management system). 4. Content Management System (CMS) CMS platforms are popular for website creation due to their user-friendly graphical interfaces, making them ideal for blogging and providing extensive control over website management, including hosting and security. WordPress, the most renowned CMS, powers a majority of websites globally, offering both free and paid themes and plugins to design your blog or webpage exactly how you want it. Here are some pros and cons of choosing a CMS like WordPress for your blogging platforms: Pros: • You will have a hundred percent control of your website by choosing WordPress as your CMS. You can adjust, manage, and switch web hosting resources. • You can also customize your website by adding custom codes of WordPress plugins and themes from the official directory. • WordPress is a self-hosted platform that can support complex websites as your blog hosting has sufficient resources. Cons: • WordPress requires some technical knowledge as compared to other website builders. But it is comparatively easier to build a website from scratch. • Self-hosted platforms require steps: purchasing web hosting, registering a domain name, and installing themes and plugins. • Most self-hosted platforms do not offer customer support. So, you have to rely on your hosting provider. Website Builder Website builders are the best options to start blogging without a lengthy setup process. These platforms allow you to build a website without technical requirements, making them ideal for beginners. You can customize the blog template using a user-friendly drag-and-drop editor and various tools like AI Writer and other AI generator tools. 5. Get a blog name and acquire a domain The next main step is acquiring a domain name to become a blogger. It should be catchy and unique. It should be more like a brand and relevant to your industry. There are three main qualities a good blog name should have: 1. The domain name should be relevant to your niche or industry. It should contain relevant keywords. 2. While some domains with long names are highly successful, ideally you should keep it short not more than 2 or 3 words. 3. For more look-alike brands it should be easy to spell or remember by name. You can use blog name generators to choose a domain name. All you must do is give a generator a few keywords and it will come back to you with more suggestions. Simply choose the one which suits you most and now your blog is ready to go. Tip: Avoid Numbers and Hyphens, these can make your domain harder to remember. 6. Website setup and customization As previously mentioned, different platforms have diverse needs and priorities. They have different setups and customization procedures. Here we will learn about the procedure of setting up a website and it's customization. Installing WordPress After purchasing the WordPress hosting plan the next main step is installing the WordPress through a web host. Different hosting has different WordPress installation procedures to adopt, or you can use auto-installers through the cPanel. Picking a WordPress theme • Focus on designing and customizing your website blog. • A WordPress theme is a customizable design template available in free and premium options in the WordPress library and third-party resources like Theme Forest or Astra. • Paid WordPress themes offer dedicated support, regular updates, and premium plugins, unlike free themes which lack support. • Ensure a premium theme is worth the price. • Choose a theme with an appealing design, drag-and-drop features, premade layouts, and customer support. • The theme should be responsive to any screen size. • Check user reviews and experiences for reliability. To install a WordPress theme from the WordPress directory, log in to your dashboard navigate to appearance-themes-add new, and choose the theme that you want to install, once the installation process is complete hit the activate button. To install a theme from a third-party source, click on the upload theme button upload the .zip file and then install and activate it. 7. Build the main pages and categories Website pages contain the content of a website. The most common types of web pages are the following: 1. Homepage: Your homepage is the main page of your website. It is the most important introductory page of your blog. The visitors visit it when they enter your website URL in the address bar. 2. The About Us page: Your visitors learn more about your website or organization through this page. This page represents the objective of your website. 3. Contact Us page: This page tells how the visitors can contact the owner of the website. The Contact Us page includes an email address, a phone number, or links to social media profiles. Starting a new blog is a huge task for newcomers who need proper help and guidance. Here in this blog, we have discussed the major steps of blogging in detail, so that it can provide you with complete understating about the topic. We hope that after reading this piece of writing, you will be motivated and able enough to start your own blog. Author: Muhammad Hamza | Reviewed By: Hifsah Umbreen

The Impact of AI on SEO: Pros, Cons and Humanization

The Impact of AI on SEO: Pros, Cons and Humanization

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and the process of optimizing web content including text, images, videos, gifs, etc. to be visible to the right audience is called SEO. All the content on the internet was entered by humans before the availability of AI tools either by typing, uploading, or streaming live. But now AI tools have revolutionized the world with their easy access and usage. Since the majority of AI tools are available for free, the internet is divided into whether to use AI content to get SEO rankings or they should stick to the traditional way of writing content. In this blog, we will dig more into the matter. Importance of content in SEO SEO aims to get visitors and the only thing that can attract and maintain users is quality content. Without the content search engines will never know what a page is about and how to get relevant users. Hence making the content extremely important for a web page and its success. Search engines rank content based on an algorithm, a set of rules/instructions. It's important to keep up with the changes in those rules. These changes can help you figure out how to make your website rank higher in search engine results. When it comes to SEO, only really good content matters. Search engines like Google prefer helpful and well-made content because it helps users to get the required results. Search engines use words/phrases known as keywords to match user queries with the content on the internet and then show them results that best match their intent depending on the user's location, demographics, gender, etc. Now, the question arises can an AI language model create content that keeps up with the algorithm of a search engine? Any content, generated by machines as a result of the human query is known as AI content, which could be blogs, product descriptions, research articles, marketing materials, videos, audio, etc. It may have limitations which can only be overcome through human efforts to make the content work well on search engines. Pros of AI-generated content Cost Effectiveness Creating content with experienced writers costs very high depending on the required technical knowledge, word count, and required format. On the other hand, AI content generators are free or available at cheap rates. Efficiency and Scalability An AI tool can generate hundreds of articles in a few minutes compared to a human. An experienced writer needs hours to days to research and write an article molding it into the required format and making it keyword-optimized. An AI tool can personalize the same content for different formats like a social media post, a blog post, etc. which might seem challenging for a human writer. Help with writer’s block When a writer finds it difficult to be creative and with no idea it is called writer’s block. Getting stuck in writer’s block is a common hurdle writers face while creating content. AI content creation tools can generate ideas and outlines for the content helping them get rid of this issue. Improved SEO Where there is debate about using AI content for SEO, it is proven that AI-generated content has performed no less than that of humans. AI tools can research, explore, and write hundreds of high-quality articles in a few minutes. Where there is debate about using AI content for SEO, it is proven that AI-generated content has performed no less than that of humans. Cons of AI-generated content Plagiarized and poor-quality content AI tools fetch data from the same resource and there is quite a chance that it is the same data created earlier. Search engines do not support plagiarism and will flag the copied content. Other than plagiarism, AI content misses the proper flow of content as it fetches data from random resources making it against the search engine’s content guidelines. Algorithms devalue content Search engines like ‘Google’ support content that adds value to the users. Depending on the user interest, and bounce back rate, Google will devalue a web page. AI tools without understanding the complication create content filled with information resulting in users leaving the page. Lack of creativity Content can never be engaging if it’s not creative and the reader does not feel an emotional bond with it. Creativity depends on the topic and the way it is explained. AI lacks this emotional touch, hence creating content that is more informative and less interactive. Human editing is a must AI tools do not understand adjective meanings of the word and might write two opposite opinions in one piece of writing. They explore and find data from many of the online resources and combine them to keep a final output. This final output still needs human editing to keep the same side of the writer’s opinion. Lack of new ideas AI tools use already available data on the internet and create a piece of writing without adding something new and creative. Meanwhile, trending topics keep on changing. To keep a specific position on the top pages of a search engine, a business must create trending content as soon as possible and relying solely on the AI content creation tool might not work well. To keep a specific position on the top pages of a search engine, a business must create trending content as soon as possible and relying solely on the AI content creation tool might not work well. Strategies for Humanizing AI Content Apart from the disadvantages of AI, about 87% of people are using AI to generate content. According to IBM, 34% of organizations are currently using AI and 42% are analyzing the facts to switch to this new technology. Since it is the need of today’s world, let us find ways to make AI-generated content more like humans and less like machines. 1. AI-generated content uses common phrases or words like "Furthermore," "Additionally" "Moreover," "unravel," unleash," "unveil," "uncover", "Unlock," "In conclusion," and "ultimately", "in summary," etc. Whenever you are using an AI tool, make sure to watch out for these words. Remove them and add a flow to your content as required. 2. Most of the AI tools use passive voice while explaining a solution. As a writer, you must focus that there are no more than two passive voice sentences in one paragraph. Try to develop and maintain the tone of the piece of writing in first-person pronouns. Use words like I, We, and Us. Remember that Search engines better rank content that describes the personal experience or tells a story. 3. Search engines prefer content that is both informative and entertaining. The presented information and facts should be accurate. Never post your AI-generated content online without fact-checking it. Use different resources and make sure you are delivering the right information. 4. There are thousands of tools available online that humanize AI content. It is never recommended to use them, instead, make sure that you edit each of your pieces of writing yourself. AI tools are great assistance and facilitation and have made our work easy. Though it has some drawbacks, we cannot deny its importance in this new era. These tools provide ideas and outlines for our content and projects. The basic need is to review the content minutely and add the required changes. AI tools with your creativity and imagination can make your content SEO-friendly to rank it higher on search engines. AI is the future, and it is better to equip yourself with it as early as possible. Author: Ayesha Aslam | Reviewed By: Hifsah Umbreen
