+ The Perfect Hashtags for Slow Living Content Creators

The Perfect Hashtags for Slow Living Content Creators

In the last 4 months, we conducted a hashtag A/B test for many popular groups of hashtags related to slow living lifestyle bloggers and Instagrammers. Our goal was focused absolutely on organic reach and traffic results. See the results and use these top-performing hashtags!

How did this test occur in our content strategy test drives? Since November 2019 until mid-January 2020 we received 360 questions about which hashtags we recommended for content creators that prefer to promote a quiet way of living. Especially for content creators that seek organic results and real human connection with their audience. The majority of the bloggers were into the stream of slow living and creative mindset.

Since we never had the chance in the past to run a similar test, we decided to go for this challenge, gather all the statistics and then answer to the 360 questions.

Avoid Banned Instagram Hashtags

Yes, there is a list with banned Instagram hashtags that you should avoid if you don’t want to get penalized by Instagram. The bad news is that this list is changing every week. The good news is that we can check our hashtags before we add them to our IG feed.

Although banned Instagram hashtags mean extra work for each post, in general, I find it a clever way to restrict spam behavior inside the platform. Fake news and spamming are making our social media life feel like a weekend in the most dangerous city in the world. Here is the updated list of banned Instagram hashtags.

How to Maintain Business Prosperity

Welcome June! A brand new month is ahead of us and we are ready to open our wings and reach the sky. We all went through a difficult time during the last couple of months.  But life has a unique way to push us into the next step. 

Hundreds of fellow digital entrepreneurs reached out and a discussion started between professional bloggers and digital copywriters from all over the world. We have a secret group where we deal with our struggles and professional challenges. Only this time, everyone was looking for ways to move on to the next day. The new business reality after COVID-19 lockdown. And ways to brighten up our business prosperity in a period of uncertainty.

After weeks of discussions, we reached to 4 major conclusions:

  1. No one knows what to do.
  2. Clients need to find inspiration from us, the wordsmiths.
  3. It is a good time to offer pro bono digital copywriting & SEO services in order to get out of our shells.
  4. Now it is the perfect time to publish new work.

Try New Ways of Connection

So, the Web Designers of the group offered their trained eyes to improve design issues in several websites & blogs among the group’s members. The SEO writers offered their pen to improve the digital content on many websites & blogs. The technical SEO experts offered their wise skills to fix speed issues or even serious technical pitfalls. Everyone provided their services to anyone that needed a helping hand. 

Within a month, 70%  of our group’s community said that their mood was uplifted and gradually their business started to show new traffic. The second month was even more encouraging because 45% of the people said that new contracts started to land, and before the end of the second month almost everyone had at least one new paid project to deliver.

This line of incidents made me think that we can conquer all obstacles when we join forces and help each other. Solidarity and kindness are the two magical elements that can help us achieve anything in life.

Apparently, this was really a genius way to nurture our business prosperity and our mental health, as well. When we see light at the end of a dark tunnel, it’s easier to be more optimistic and react with patience under pressure, in our everyday challenges.

Choose to Change your Mindset

All brands and companies are based on human beings. And all human beings are responding positively to kindness. Be brave enough to offer before you request something.  Make good use of your time. Do your best to spread joy and trust. That’s the secret behind any genius ways to brighten up your business prosperity.

650 digital entrepreneurs tried this approach and today they can provide to their families. In a hard world, only warm & brave hearts can bring the change we all are wishing to find. 

Let’s make June an amazing month. Together!

Make the conversation interesting

Visualize yourself as if you are in a room with strangers that all have a tag attached on them, indicating that they are bloggers walking up and down the room. How are you planning to introduce yourself without boring them?

Blogging needs two major elements to look and feel that worths the visitor’s attention.

First you should show that you care to learn more about the person in front of you. In our case, the person visiting & reading your blog. You have 4 seconds to grab the visitor’s attention. Have a look at this article for more details: 4 Best Title Generator Tools For Your Blog.

Use the title of your blog posts wisely. Sent the message about your post and that you are here to provide the answer they were looking for. Get in their shoes! Would you read this post? Would you spend 10-20 minutes to read more about this topic? Does it cover a need?

If the answer is yes, then you are ready to create the right content for the right eyes.

The second element is the quality of your content. Respect the time of your guests/visitors. Never publish a post that you would never recommended it to others if it was written from another person.

It may feels terrifying in the beginning, but gradually, you will feel comfortable enough to share your work in public. Feel free to visit this article for useful blogging keywords: Top Posts and Keywords for Blogging. Use these top keywords for blogging in your next blog posts and see the quality and quantity of traffic explode within a month.

Happy Birthday WordPress!

On 27 May 2003 WordPress started its journey. Happy Birthday to all the people behind WordPress! Millions of users are celebrating today WordPress Birthday. One really big global family!

Greek: Στις 27 Μαίου 2003 το αγαπημένο μας WordPress ξεκίνησε το ταξίδι του και σήμερα εκατομμύρια χρήστες γιορτάζουν τα 17 γενέθλια του!

WordPress was released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog. WordPress is released under the GPLv2 (or later) license from the Free Software Foundation.

WordPress CMS has come a very long way from just a simple blog application. Today, WordPress is behind news portals, social media websites and thousands of blogs!

WordPress key element is that it continues to grow.

WordPress Facts

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL.WordPress is installed on a web server that is either part of an Internet hosting service or a network host in its own right.

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

The WP History

WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPLv2 (or later). It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is fresh software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product.

For a bit more about WordPress’ history check out the WordPress Wikipedia page or this page on their own Codex.

How it works

The first case may be a service like WordPress.com, for example, and the second case could be a computer running the software package WordPress.org. A local computer may be used for single-user testing and learning purposes. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system.

SEO Headlines

Headlines are the cornerstones of your blogging strategy. Pay attention and master the title generating game if you want to attract the right kind of attention from the right people. Visitors who seek information about blogging services or SEO copywriting will never land on your website if you use generic titles like Don’t mix oranges with apples, Dive in the beauty of words, Write your story etc.

Headlines is the entrance door to your website and is the one-time opportunity to be discovered. Remember that we have only 4 seconds to grab the visitor’s attention. Use these 4 seconds wisely! Instead of burning your brain to find amazing titles for your blog posts, try these 4 title generator tools and get the results you are dreaming. 

SEO Keywords

In general, top posts are those that bring huge traffic into blogs. In my opinion, top posts should bring and potential new business contracts or/and leads. Therefore we can separate these posts from all the others. This is a strong indicator of what really works with your target audience. In other words, what real people prefer to read from you. Quite helpful to clear any doubts that blogging in an ongoing process of communication and development.

To make this happen you must concentrate on the best keywords for your blog posts. Define what brings real people into your blog and listen what they say to you, through the statistics and analytics. If certain topics and queries keep bringing more visits and traffic, then consider publishing more about these queries and use related keywords. Here is an example of my golden list for blogging related keywords.

SEO Social Media Sharing

You know what they say, sharing is caring. In this case, making it easy for your readers to share your posts in their social media channels is totally a game-changing step. Add social media sharing buttons, create graphics and visuals that are social media friendly for all types of sharing actions. For example, Pinterest visuals are different from Instagram visuals. Here is a picture with the right dimensions to be shared into Pinterest boards.

SEO Endless Improvement

That’s one of the major factors that most bloggers see poor traffic results. Make time to improve and enhance older posts. Add new information or new visuals. Revise the content and constantly improve your work. Your readers will love you for this… and Google will love you, too!

What you have written a year ago may need optimization. And search machines crawl and check what is published, frequently. Keep your content updated and stay at the top of interest for your target audience.

4 Best Title Generator Tools For Your Blog

Blogging has become a major business channel for the corporate world and individuals, as well. Whenever traditional marketing failed to deliver, content marketing (and blogging) was and still is the best remedy.

Bloggers are wordsmiths with a purpose! But new bloggers face a difficulty in crafting captivating blog post titles. And it is obvious that titles are 50% responsible for the amount of traffic you gain into your blog.

Instead of burning your brain to find amazing titles for your blog posts, try these 4 title generator tools and get the results you are dreaming. Knowing when to use the right tools will help you to build a successful blog.

Blogging Hates General Titles

Although a general topic may sound interesting, it’s not a wise choice in order to create a rich content calendar. With a general topic the target audience won’t know what to expect from your article. When a topic has no frame then you should focus on specific details and create blog posts that serve your brand’s goals & mission.

At the beginning of your blogging journey, too broad titles will attract your audience but most probably you won’t rise up to the challenge to keep their attention for more than 1 minute. Writing a +3000 words article is way beyond a beginner’s ability to cope with it!

Why don’t you try this? Act proactively and set a content schedule for the following 3 months. See the big picture with one glance. Check if your headlines are boring or repetitive. Improve the wording and change the position of the titles. You want to spread out your message and grab attention easily. The right titles do exactly that! Break down your original idea to smaller pieces and produce a set of blog posts.

Look how this list of 90 days real blogging topics helped my blog to became popular. Plain, everyday titles that captured thousands of eyes, again and again!

Pro Blogging Tips

The year has 52 weeks, therefore you can plan ahead for the next 52 blog posts. Some prefer Google spreadsheets and Google Calendar, some others use sophisticated planning tools. I prefer to use this simple but effective strategy: for each client I create a secret Facebook Group where I keep all the topics, notes, sources, files, links and the monthly editorial calendar.

The golden rule of blogging: Avoid thin content. Never bother to blog if you are not planning to write a 1000+ words post. The more you write, the better results you’ll get. In this case, size do matter!

Treat each page, article and blog post like the ultimate landing page of your brand. For each new visitor you have only one chance to deliver your message and plant a new business lead.

Well structured blog posts, with data and rich content, provide value to your brand’s name. More content brings more visits. More visits can invite more followers and subscribers. More subscribers means potential clients.

Create an editorial calendar and plan ahead for the creation process of your content. Be patient because you won’t see your blog posts go viral in a night.

Use Google Analytics and track your audience reactions to your content. What they visit most is a significant indicator on what you should focus more. It takes a lot of time to achieve phenomenal results. Did you know that only 1% of blog posts online get over 1,000 shares?

How to find hot and trending topics?

Use Google Trends, It is a free tool that helps us find what is trendy. Explore how Google data can be used to tell stories that captures your readers attention. For example: Content Marketing, last 30 days.

Google trends for title generator

Twitter is the ultimate free searching tool for real time trending topics! Again it’s another one free tool that is really accurate and helps bloggers find fascinating topics at Twitter‘s search bar. Before publishing this post I searched for what is trending in #digitalmarketing and some headlines gave me true inspiration.

Bonus Blogging Tips

Stay calm! Maybe you find all of this overwhelming and frustrating. The beginning is always a bit rough, for all of us! In a month or two, you will find yourself feeling more confident in creating a steady blogging flow. Bear in mind the following and keep writing.

  • Write like a real human being.
  • Have you own personal writing style.
  • Write as you speak.
  • Reach the heart of each topic through your angle.
  • Be persistent.
  • Back up your words with data and facts.
  • Try to write long-form, actionable content.
  • Provide clear solutions to your audience’s problems.
  • Guide your readers step-by-step to solve the problem at hand.
  • Screenshots of statistics & insights are great data material.
  • Invite people to take action. But you must set the example.
  • Create more engaging and rich content.

Fame is good but devoted readers are better. So stick to your schedule and keep creating new content, day by day! Useful content never harmed anyone. Effective, quality blogging can take time, but worths all of your energy! After all, blogging is a way of living.

Hey, don’t forget to use the basics of writing and SEO.

These basic rules will help you get by the first hard 6 months of blogging. Use easy to follow sentences and paragraphs. Add Headings type 1, 2, 3, 4 in every new blog posts, they exist for a good season. Heading 1 is for the main title and headline. Heading 2 is for supporting your main title and keywords. Heading 3 + 4 are the little brothers that repeat and support the main key phrases. SEO needs all types of heading into a blog post.

Instagram is checking bots and inappropriate content under specific hashtags. When spam or hate content or nudity or violent content appears into the feed with certain leading hashtags then they ban those hashtags temporarily or permanently.

When an Instagrammer is using banned hashtags then his/her posts remain hidden for the rest of Instagram Community. Here is the list of banned hashtags you should avoid if you want to stay active into Instagram.

How to Check if an Instagram Hashtag is Banned

You are not sure if an Instagram hashtag is working? Before adding any hashtag run a check-search into Instagram search bar. Let’s try the hashtag #adulting and here is what you get:

Did you notice the restriction message?

Recent posts from # adulting are currently hidden because the community has reported some content that may not meet Instagram’s community guidelines. Learn more>>

This is the official Instagram’s message for all banned hashtags. And yes, you have to check all of your hashtags at least once a month if they are still working or if they put your account under a shadowban.

Have you ever read Instagram’s Community Guidelines about hashtags?

If you press the Learn More in the restriction message, you will discover more useful details about banned hashtags.

Instagram explains why aren’t Top or Recent posts showing up for a particular Instagram hashtag page. Instagram can remove a hashtag from the Top or Recent posts on a hashtag page if people are using the hashtag to post content that goes against their Community Guidelines.

Why are certain posts on Instagram not appearing in Explore and hashtag pages?

Instagram has Community Guidelines that make quite clear what’s allowed in order to keep Instagram an authentic and safe place for inspiration and expression. When they find a post that goes against their Community Guidelines, they remove it from Instagram.

While some posts on Instagram may not go 100% against their Community Guidelines, they might not be appropriate for their global community, and they tend to limit those types of posts from being recommended on Explore and hashtag pages. For example, a sexually suggestive post will still appear in Feed if you follow the account that posts it, but this type of content may not appear for the broader community in Explore and hashtag pages.

Instagram is doing their best to ensure that there is a balance between creativity and safety. They are working to ensure that the content they recommend is both safe and appropriate for all community members. In other words, Instagram is stricter about what content is recommended to people on Explore and hashtag pages.

Keep in mind:

  • Not all posts or accounts are eligible to be surfaced in Explore and hashtag pages. They use a variety of signals, for example, if an account has recently gone against Instagram Community Guidelines, to determine which posts and accounts can be recommended to the community.
  • If you see a post on a hashtag page or Explore that you think goes against Instagram Community Guidelines, you can report it to them so they can take a closer look. If a post goes against Instagram Community Guidelines, they’ll remove it from Instagram.

+ Facebook Acquired GIPHY on 15 May 2020

Facebook Acquired GIPHY

Giphy, styled as GIPHY, is an American online database and search engine that allows users to search for and share short looping videos with no sound, that resemble animated GIF files. On 15 May 2020, GIPHY was acquired by Facebook for a reported $400 million.

Here is Facebook Newsroom’s announcement:

GIPHY, a leader in visual expression and creation, is joining the Facebook company today as part of the Instagram team. GIPHY makes everyday conversations more entertaining, and so we plan to further integrate their GIF library into Instagram and our other apps so that people can find just the right way to express themselves.

A lot of people in our community already know and love GIPHY. In fact, 50% of GIPHY’s traffic comes from the Facebook family of apps, half of that from Instagram alone. By bringing Instagram and GIPHY together, we can make it easier for people to find the perfect GIFs and stickers in Stories and Direct. Both our services are big supporters of the creator and artist community, and that will continue. Together, we can make it easier for anyone to create and share their work with the world.

We’ve used GIPHY’s API for years, not just in Instagram, but in the Facebook app, Messenger and WhatsApp. GIPHY will continue to operate its library (including its global content collection), and we’re looking forward to investing further in its technology and relationships with content and API partners. People will still be able to upload GIFs; developers and API partners will continue to have the same access to GIPHY’s APIs; and GIPHY’s creative community will still be able to create great content.

GIFs and stickers give people meaningful and creative ways to express themselves. We see the positivity in how people use GIPHY in our products today, and we know that bringing the GIPHY team’s creativity and talent together with ours will only accelerate how people use visual communication to connect with each other.

About Giphy

Giphy was founded by Alex Chung and Jace Cooke in February 2013. The idea for the business came when the pair were having breakfast, musing on the rising trend of purely visual communication.

When Chung and Cooke first launched Giphy, the website functioned solely as a search engine for GIFs. According to Chung, Giphy attracted around a million users during its first week and the figure leveled out to 300,000.

Giphy features what its founders called “conversational search” wherein contents are brought to users’ conversations through a search box found in their messaging applications. Read more about Giphy in Wikipedia.
