So you made the big step and you finally started your blog.
You got it all built and set up and you have been publishing articles like a robotic blog posting machine or something.
There’s just one problem.
No one is reading your blog and Google doesn’t even know you exist.
What are you going to do now?
Well. That anxious feeling that you have is likely coming from the fact that its not clear to you what to do. I have been there trust me. Its very stressful trying to figure out this stuff and do it at the same time.
There are 2 primary reasons why it is important to get your posts on the first page of Google:
1. Credibility. People will consider your website a more credible source if you can be found on the first page of Google and other search engines. I focus more on Google because well, they are the biggest and best at website search right now. When that changes I will too.

This is a phenomenon I have noticed where new bloggers are so scared to say something that they say nothing and no one ever reads their stuff.

Oprah, Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck the list goes on and on all off of not being afraid. The magic seems to happen when people see the value in their opinions and perspectives once they do others do too.
Now I want to hear from you. How have you been blogging, have you been a “safe blogger”? How’s that working for you? If not what topics do you cover what’s your URL?
