    Blogging is a passion, it’s not a job. Very nice article. I would like to add one thing.

    While writing any blog I make sure I am not explaining my DNA structure. I always keep it simple and easy to understand
    for readers.

    So if you want to make content viral, keep the English simple and standard high.

    Focusing on promoting content is really important. There are many blogs and articles about a topic that it is only with sheer luck if you get noticed. Thus, you need to push your way ahead. I have tried most of these techniques except republishing content. When is the best time to republish?

    Hi Neil,
    I was thinking about this subject and would like to know your opinion about the strategy of using long tail keywords. Especially when we are beginning to create content, this strategy can help better ranked on specific issues and that extra traffic can help amplify the audience as a whole, generating traffic for the other posts also, making the contents disclosed.

    Can you tell me if this strategy is really effective? If traffic increases to a high degree?

    Congratulations for the content, I am your fan.
