PHP file upload (Large Files)

Posted: 04 Dec 2012 08:00 AM PST

It may happen that your outgoing connection to the server is slow, and it may timeout not the "execution time" but the "input time", which for example in our system defaulted to 60s. In our case a large upload could take 1 or 2 hours.

2) Blog Layout

The better the blog layout would be, the more traffic it would attract. Keep background colors light, giving it a decent look? Make things easier to understand for your readers.

3) An Exclusive Logo

You have chosen blogging as your business, right? You need to have an exclusive logo that will become your blog’s identity.

4) Post Regularly

Good Blogs show regularity in posting their articles. This keeps your visitor attached to you and ensures consistent traffic.

5) Share Quality Content

There are thousands of sites having same niche as yours, what makes you better than them is the quality content. Give your writing, your own shade with an interesting touch.

6) Post Length

what is the ideal post lengthAn ideal length of a post is in between 700- 1500 words, depending on the nature of post. Do not write lesser than 700, as Google penalize blogs for that severely. The post can be as long as you wish to, but lengthy posts make readers lose their interest in it.

7) Choose a Good Intro Image

An effective, self-explanatory image is essential for your post to become a hit. Choose high quality, relevant images.

8) Your own Screenshots Only

Many bloggers copy paste images in tutorial posts, which is a disaster thing to do. Always use your own screenshots while telling your viewers how to do something. This increases your credibility.

9) Recheck Your post

Being a human, it’s natural to make mistakes while typing. Check your articles before publishing for grammatical and spelling mistakes. This is what we call proofreading.

10) Easy navigation

Keep your blog simple for your visitors, providing them a simple navigation on your blog.

11) Show Your Creativity

Having many blogs in same niche, you need to add your creativity in your articles so that it takes you a level ahead than other bloggers.

12) Keep your Readers Involved

It is interrelated to point 11, the more creative you’d be, and the more interest your readers would show in your articles, decreasing the bounce rate of your blog.

13) Interact with your Readers

Keep a check of all the comments made by your visitors. Appreciate them for staying connected and answer their queries, if any.

14) Comment on other blogs

It’s no more a matter of prestige; you need to mingle well within other social circles to increase your traffic. Visit different blogs and tell on that platform about your existence.

15) Get Advertisements

In order to survive, getting advertisements is necessary. Use Google adwords to earn via pay per click advertising options.

16) List posts

This is what we have been doing on SEM, create list posts, it brings huge traffic!

17) Contests

Value your readers always. Start contests, polls and such activities on your blog to keep your readers active.

18) RSS feeds

rssAlways give an option on your blog to get subscribed via mails. People who are busy to visit your blog daily, can subscribe for its RSS feeds and can still stay connected.

19) Newsletter

Issue monthly newspapers to your visitors; sharing all the latest happenings on the blog with them.

20) Write SEO Friendly Content

Researching on how to write a SEO friendly article can really help in making your blog popular.

21) Make Your Blog your Identity

I’m sure all of you are well aware of e-mail signature. Write your blog name and url of your blog in email signatures.

22) Correct Your Fellow Bloggers

Be a good observer on different blogs and let the owner know about any mistake or error that might occur on a blog. Keep your tone polite and do not try to act smart.

23) Share on Facebook

Sharing your posts on Facebook Groups and Pages can make your posts, a hit. 

24) Share it on Twitter

Twitter is a great social networking site to attract traffic from western countries. Majority of the users are from west and publicizing your post in twitter can attract those users to become your readers.

25) Allow Links in Comments

The real bloggers have actually got no interest in coming to your blog all the way and read your articles only out of good will. In fact, they are themselves looking for opportunities on your blog to introduce their work. Allowing bloggers to leave their links in their comments will give them a reason to come to your blog again and again, increasing your traffic.

26) Maintain decency

It is a pity that sometimes bloggers fail badly to respect their profession and use their blog more than an informative platform and use it unethically. As a blogger, you need to earn some respect through the way you address your readers, and its only then that people actually start respecting your blog.

27)Use Keywords

Using keywords in your posts keeps you and Search engines happy at the same time. Always try to play with keywords of the post to get more page views, further increasing your earnings.

28) Give Value to your Headlines

Your selection for titles of the post is the most important thing when it comes to your creativity. This was one of those things that I used to find really difficult, initially. Your readers Judge the entire post with the title; always try to keep simple and straight forward titles.

29) Keep Updating the Blog

If you aim high for your blog and do not want it to become outdated just like iGoogle, then keep upgrading it to ensure that your blog meets up the changing demands of readers. Changing blog design once in six months can also be a good decision.

30) Keep Drafts ready

As a blogger its your responsibility to ensure the regular posting on your blog. However as blogging is an entrepreneurship business, where you are answerable to nobody, there are wide chances that you might skip your postings due to some other engagements. Therefore keep your 5 posts saved in drafts at minimum always. Make sure that the posts you choose to save as drafts have a timeless effect in them, the posts that can be published in all scenarios, like How-to posts, Best tips, etc.

31) Easy to read Fonts.

Blogs owning a lucida Handwriting font might give it an unprofessional look for sure. Keep your Font style and size readable for your readers.

32) Give a strong competition

There is always an unsaid war going on in between you and bloggers, writing for same niche. Try to give a tough time to them with your skills that are needed to be polished further with your each post!

33) Set an Inspiration

Having an inspiration in life is really a motivating thing and if you have no ideal personalities, then better start searching them. Reading about great people, here, blogs will always create a feeling to follow similar footsteps to reach on similar levels of success.

34) Be Yourself

This tip is given by almost all the bloggers who share tutorials on similar topics, that is the reason; I have listed this too common tip here. Being yourself mean that you should never place a wrong impact on your readers about either you or your knowledge. Become the master of your domain and do not fake about things you hardly know!

35) Never Give Up

Your one post cannot decide about your efficiency, it is just like some days are not meant for you. As a blogger, I m a living witness of it! What happen actually is the frequency of your readers and yours do not match at times; your readers, having a complete freedom of speech do not think once giving you a bad comment. But this is the point you need to check your post views. The post itself made it in attracting enough traffic that few of them dislike it. Although that feeling is pathetic, still keep your spirits high and start working on the next post, hoping to have some better results. You will see, soon things will start working out.
That was all for now, hope that these tips turn out to beneficial for you in your blogging career.

Blogs Top 10 Tips For Increasing Blog Traffic

http://designsguru.blogspot.in

Increasing blog's traffic is every blogger's aim. Whether for reaching out to a larger audience, or generating more income through a blog, or to create awareness about a particular topic, he needs more traffic on his blog for his efforts to be of any worth. You might spend all the time and hard work you want on your blog. But unless you don't have a decent traffic, all your struggles will be in vain. Hence, the more traffic, the better.

Are you waking up daily, eager to check out your blog's traffic, only to find out that there has been little or no improvement in your stats whatsoever? There must be something you are doing wrong, or not doing at all! Here is a list of things you can do to increase your blog's traffic. Or rather, here is a checklist to help you ensure that you are doing all the necessary things correctly.

Post frequency and Timings

Post frequency and timings are extremely important for your blog's rankings. First of all, search engines such as Google like to see fresh content on websites. If your blog is struggling for traffic, then you must publish at least one post daily. The more frequently you publish posts, the more quickly your rankings and traffic grows. For example, our other blog SEM had a million+ Alexa ranking when it started! We have been publishing two posts daily for the first two months. And in those two months, the Alexa improved dramatically and it now stands at around 50,000!

post timings
Post timings are important as well. Not only do you need to be consistent in your timings, you should also choose a time that's globally significant. Choose a time windows that best suits your majority audience. Our publish timings are 12 01 am each day! Not only does this suits our audience, it also is consistent timing. Once you choose a time, stick to it! Not publishing posts on your fixed time can drop your Alexa! This is what happened to me at SEM once or twice. I made a mistake in scheduling my post, and it didn't publish at the set time. As a result, the Alexa didn't improve, despite the two brand new posts published that day!

Build Backlinks

Backlinks are very important for a blog, but only the quality ones. Backlinks refer to in-bound links to your blog from other sites. Backlinks give you instant traffic from other sites. But be careful about them. Trust me, you don't want cheap backlinks to your blog. They will hurt your rank instead of improving it. Never buy a backlink package such as "1,000 backlinks for $9.99" etc. Try to build genuine backlinks on sites with a decent rank.
High ranking backlinks

How to build backlinks? Well there are many ways. Participate in forum discussions, and recommend some content on your blog to others. Also add your blog's URL to your signatures. This will leave a link to your blog each time you post a comment on a forum. Another way of increasing backlinks is by guest posting on other blogs. Write for other blogs in return for backlinks.

Advertise!

If you've got some money on hand, then why not advertise your website? Advertising your blog is one of the best ways of increasing traffic, since it gives you instant exposure. Ads on sites relating to your niche can give you much more benefits as compared to other sites, since the traffic on similar niche sites is interested in exactly the kind of stuff you, or other similar sites have.

Interact!

Interacting with your audience is the key to retaining and increasing your traffic. Adding stuff like polls, questions, surveys and forums can increase your interactivity. Also, use such a writing style that addresses the readers directly. Be casual and friendly, and don't be (too) formal.

Write Articles

This method is highly effective. Not only does it give you immediate traffic, it also gives you  quality backlinks that improve your traffic in the long run. Write an article on a topic relating to your website, and submit it to popular article directories, such as Squidoo, Hubpages, Ezine Articles etc. For example, say you have a blog about affiliate marketing. You can write an article on affiliate marketing tips, and then mention your own blog in that article. Then submit that article to popular directories for traffic and backlinks.

write articles
One thing though. Try not to write on sites that give no-follow links. Such sites include eHow, articlesbase, examiner etc. Sites like Squidoo and Ezine Articles don't give no-follow links, which is preferable.

Discuss Recent Trends


Discussing hot topics can get you in search engines' good favour. Google likes to see the latest content. Not only that, people also want to see latest content. Discussing latest topics gives a good impression of your blog being up to date. Not only that, it draws a lot of traffic, and indeed contributes a lot towards this very blog's traffic.

Guest Blogging


Encourage guest posting on your blog. There are many advantages of doing that. First of all, it will increase your post frequency, which, as we already discussed is a good thing. It will also reduce your workload and effort. Secondly, it will increase your traffic slightly, since fans from the guest's blog will want to read what their writer has written on another blog. Be careful about this though. You have to give out backlinks to the guests' blogs. Too many out going links without a nofollow attribute and your rank will start to drop!

Guest blogging

Apart from inviting people to write for you, you can write for others as well. This will get you a backlink. Write multiple posts on quality blogs, and you will see your backlinks increase and your rankings soar! This is one of the best way of building genuine backlinks

Apply SEO techniques


Search Engine Optimization is so vast a topic that entire books have been written on it. But you don't need to read books. All you need do is learn some basic SEO techniques, and apply them to your blog. SEO is extremely important if you want search engines to find your blog easily.

You should be familiar with the most basic SEO methods. Keep keywords in mind while writing titles and introductory paragraphs. Also write two or three line meta descriptions for your posts. If you are using WordPress, then you'll need to add meta keywords as well. Complete these basic steps and you're done with the basic SEO, although this is, by no means, the end of it.

SEO

Also, learn how to generate and submit a sitemap for your blog to major search engines. This is an important SEO step that every blogger needs to take to ensure that all of his posts and pages are indexed properly.

Use Social Media

You'll be surprised at how useful social media can be. Make public profiles on popular networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ etc. These will help you build a fan base of your blog. Social Media is also great in the sense that it provides you a much greater exposure through your fans than you could get on your own. So share your new blog posts on social media not only to gain extra traffic, but also to retain your existing traffic.

Use Q&A Websites


Q&A websites can be a great source of traffic for blogs. Get active on popular Q&A sites, such as Yahoo! Answers, Wiki Answers etc. Search for questions related to your area of expertise, and answer them. Then provide your website link as a source. For example, if you are an affiliate marketer, answer some questions regarding the field, and answer them well. Then give the link to your blog. You can also do this on popular forums such as Blogger Forum etc.

Q&A Websites
These were some of the tips for increasing blog traffic. These are, by no means, the only ways. There are literally thousands of ways you can increase your blog traffic. But hopefully, these basic tips will guide you in building your basic audience. Thank you for reading. Cheers :)
