What is Super Blogging?
Super Blogging’s About page says it "is a blog about making money online and through blogging, search engine optimization, traffic generation, blogging tips, great finds on the internet, and more. This site is growing more and more every day." Having a positive affirmation like that is good. Other than that the About page is a bit thin on details except to say that Tay is a girl.
My first recommendation would be to add more to the About page, such as location in the world (I just noticed I need to do that here as well) and some other information to establish credibility as a source of information on the blog’s topics.
The theme is 2 column white with light blue accents giving it a clean look. The logo is also appealing. The navigation is good and the sitemap page uses the sitemap plugin by dagondesign.com which works quite well.
Tay uses a lot of larger photos in posts that are attractive although having them this large may distract from the article. It’s really a style thing. Using them like this may set her blog apart from others and work as an effective branding method.
On the sidebar, the RSS feed icon is in a Web 2.0 style. I’m not sure how well the size attracts people to subscribe but it doesn’t distract from the site. Below that there are 4 125×125 advertising buttons and a text link area below that. I would suggest putting a rel=nofollow on these given how Google has been attacking paid links. A polls and a category list follow. The only sidebar widget is an Alexa counter. Finishing off the sidebar is a WordPress Meta menu. I would recommend getting rid of the Meta menu and adding in a spot for most recent posts. Alexa is kind of useless but it’s a good idea to have it on your site, even if you bury it somewhere.
So far as monetization goes Tay is trying to sell advertising space directly along with a few affiliate offers and a PayPal donation button. The wide sidebar width of the theme does offer the opportunity to place some wider widgets of some type, perhaps 250×250 advertising blocks. If there are advertising options available to her she may want to consider them if she wants to expand the monetization of the site.
There are several excellent posts I found on Super Blogging. The writing style is quite good. Here are some of the highlights I found.
First, and speaking of using images in posts, there is this article, 6 Reasons Why You Should Use Images In Your Blog Posts. It makes several good points.
The post that originally brought Super Blogging to my attention was this one: 10 Great Bloggers Tell What Mistakes They Made As Beginners. Interview posts like this are a good way to promote a blog and this one was one of the better ones I’ve seen. So good, in fact, somebody copied it and fooled a number of people into thinking it was theirs!
There are several handy info lists, such as this one: 4 Ways to Check Your Blog’s Health. These kind of posts are always good for finding out new sites that may help you improve your blog.
Beyond that, there are many other great articles on blogging. You may have seen similar info elsewhere but it is presented quite well here and worth reading to get an additional perspective.
