Are you planning for a short break or long holidays? I have seen many bloggers including myself neglecting blogs and never update the posts for several weeks or months during vacation period. Of course, you still can leave a message to your readers that you won’t be available to do the postings. But, the traffic and your loyal visitors count may drop faster than expected. I’ve lost almost 70% of my traffic for failing to do blog post for nearly a month earlier. To reach back older traffic status, it took more than 3 months of constant content updates and with a little magic from social media networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. I am sure you will see drastic changes in your Google Analytics on your blog’s visit counts if you fail to do any new blog post for several weeks. The traffic referred from search engine will drop too. Search engines will give priority to new contents and most of our blog post that ranked well will drop as new content updates from other bloggers.
Plus, the crawl rate from search engine will slow down if we don’t post frequently. If you post at least one blog post a day, it will invite search engine crawlers to visit your site almost every single day. Sometimes, your new blog post will get indexed and ranked in search engines within few minutes of post update. Search engines will give high priority to your blog contents if you consistently update contents. Abandoning our active blog for several days without any blog post will certainly slows down traffic referred from search engines and other referring channels. There are ways to make our blog look active which is used by top bloggers. Using “Timestamp” in blog post section to pre-post your articles is the best way to keep your blog active. There are some top bloggers even claimed that they have at least 3 months of posts pre-posted on their blog. Well, you may add new contents in-between with trendy posts too. Having pre-post articles for advance 3 months will give a freedom to do whatever you want for 3 months. It is something like buying extra time of 3 months especially if you are a full time blogger.
Make use of pre-post function and never miss a post on your blog. This will help us to grow in blogging industry where it gets more competitive. You will end up of managing high quality blogs with consistent updates. This will ensure your earnings from blogging increase too.
