    One of the questions that bothers most new bloggers is how to build a powerful blog.

    Sometimes, you might be thinking if it is possible to still build a powerful blog with the number of blogs and competition we now have. Yes! It is still possible, even in the most competitive niches you can build a very powerful blog if you do what is right. This post will be telling you 5 ways by which you can build a powerful blog.

    1. Write Great Content: One of the best ways to build a powerful website is by writing great content.

    If you want to build a city, house or any building, one of the most important things is the foundation. The foundation of a building is so important that the success of the whole building relies on it. This also applies to blogging, your content is your foundation and if you write just any content then you are building on a wrong foundation and that might lead to the destruction of your building.

    The truth is, it does not matter how much you promote your blog, you can never rule out content from it. If you write just any content then you should be prepared to get just any readers but if you write great, valuable content, you should be prepared to get great, valuable readers.

    You should also note that the type of readers you have on your blog can determine how powerful your blog will be so you should always write great content.

    2. Support Your King: I wonder why sleeping bloggers are expecting to be popular.

    If all you do is just crown the king and you did not give him any further support, the end result will be that your king will stolen or destroyed but if you give your king the ultimate support He needs then your king will do wonders and exploits which will eventually make your king very popular.

    Content is king and marketing is the support your content needs. Don?t just write great posts and expect people to come, no! They won?t! You should work hard towards marketing and promoting your content and blog, this is one of the most important steps in building a powerful blog ? it is inevitable.

    3. Listen to Your Readers: It is only a foolish king that will just be doing anything without being ready to know what his people wants. If you blog as you wish and you are not ready to know what the readers you write for expect then you are wasting your time.

    It is very important to listen to your readers and know what they want. If you know what your readers want you can then work on improving your blog to cater for their needs.

    4. Network With Others: Two or more can achieve better results than one. You should never underestimate the power of networking.

    Try as much as possible to look for fellow bloggers in your niche and then network with them.

    There are so many ways to network with other bloggers, you can network with them through their blog, social networking sites and by trying to help them as much as you can.

    Networking is one of the most important and unavoidable thing to consider when trying to build a powerful blog.

    5. Work on Increasing Engagement: Engagement is very important on your blog because it helps make it a better place, it adds to its value and it also acts as social proof. If you visit a blog and you see tens of retweets and comments on its posts and you visited another blog and you see none, you will know for sure that the first blog is more powerful and influential than the second one.

    You should try as much as possible to increase comments and retweets on your blog. You can do this by going to other blogs and re-tweeting and commenting on their blogs, the more you do this the more likely they will reciprocate.

    Building a powerful blog is not a day job but takes time of consistent hard-work, if you follow the tips provided above and you work hard towards achieving results, you will have a very powerful blog in no time.

    Traffic is also an essential element when trying to build a powerful blog, you can download my free traffic ebook for great tips on getting free traffic to your blog

    Netowkring and being social is great for internet marketing and in my honest opinion the most integral part of a marketers strategy. Social and content is without a doubt the two most important areas to focus on and divide your time when marketing through the internet.

    Checked for plagiarism and found that you have actually copy-pasted content from Internet. It'd be legitimate had you given credits to the original writer. Nevertheless, it's a very informative share. Cheers :)

    Yes this is true, and the way that you increase engagement that the OP was talking about is through quality content anyways.

    Really helpful post. I loved the way you talked about supporting king and increasing engagement. If anyone ignore feedbacks from their readers, they'll never succeed.
