Regular Posting And Post Frequency

Once after you start posting quality articles on your blog, keep posting regularly or post atleast 4-5 articles a week but never give more gaps. Always write unique and quality content. Never copy the content from others. search for keywords related to your blog niche and have a look over what the global peoples are most interested in. Write articles about the most interested keywords and also the less competitive keywords to stand high in Google search and various search engine results.

Your post title also plays an very effective role on attracting peoples to click on your blog link in Google results and takes the major part in getting displayed for a particular search in Google or any other search engines.
