Common Blogging Pitfalls
No Specific Niche:
Before starting a blogsite, You have to identify a niche. According to wiki; “A niche market is the subset of the market on which a specific product is focused. It is also a small market segment. For example, sports channels like STAR Sports, ESPN, STAR Cricket, and Fox Sports target a niche of sports enthusiasts. Every product can be defined by its market niche.”
The Blog title is not Catchy:
All blog titles should represent the content of the blog. They should be SMART: That is Specific, Mature, Artistic, Responsive and Tasteful. This will enable the blog get more readership and interaction in your blog.
The Domain is too long:
When blog domains or URL are too long, it affects customer’s retention after first visit. It`s one thing to get readers to your blogsite and as important as getting them in, is to retain them as they will keep your site alive and bring more readers.

Unorganized Blog Interface and Designs:
A blog is just like a shop, a disorganize shop affect service time and no customer likes to be kept for so long. We must cut waiting time to zero. So to foster this; the blog is organized, so that readers can easily get what they want with minimum or not delay, thereby enhancing their experience with the blog and the template or design should not be clumsy and too busy as it distracts.
Too Many Adverts:
It is true that bloggers make their revenue from adverts, donations and other affiliate programs, but this should not affect the blog personality, when the adverts become too much it will deface your blog site and make it too clumsy and slow. This will interfere seriously with the customers who are the readers. Remember they brought the traffic that brought the advertisers, if you dissatisfy them by tempering with their experience they will go somewhere else just with a push of the button and you loose traffic and your advertisers as well.
