MyTipsHub Journey So Far 2014 [Success, Mistakes & Future Plans]
Folks as you know this year is at the end and there are only some days left. So, I decided why not I share my journey and achievements in 2014 with mytipshub beloved readers. Dear readers, you are the soul of this blog and thanks for being a part of this newborn blog. Your feedback and comments motivate me and my team to write great articles. With the Help of ALLAH, I and my team start this blog in March 2014, it means this blog is not one-year-old yet.
I bought a domain and hosting package from BlueHost for one year at $7 a month and got the domain name at no fee. They are also a cheap domain name registrar offering affordable prices as well as renewals. We go for BlueHost because it is recommended by many experienced pro-bloggers. The age of MyTipsHub is only 9 month and in the last 9 months we have achieved many goals like getting a good amount of organic traffic, won readers heart, Improved Alexa ranking and receive some guest posts :).
MyTipsHub Journey Success, Mistakes and Future Goals 2014
Success – Alexa Rank and Organic Traffic:
When this blog was born, MyTipsHub Alexa ranking was around 10 million but now it is under 1 million and dramatically improving day by day. Our major goal of 2015 is taking this blog within 1 Lac position, what?? you read it correctly, I mean 1 Lac, you may think 1 Lac is not a much good position but for a new blog it is 🙂 Major visitors to blog are belong to Pakistan 19%, USA 18%, India 9% and remaining from other countries according to Google Analytics reports.

Platform and Appearance:
This blog powered by WordPress platform and the current theme is “Spike” picked from MyThemeShop after a long research :). MTS is one best place to buy premium themes at cheap prices. Their themes are just awesome, Fast loading, SEO friendly, Responsive and almost meet the all major requirements which we need. MTS support is also great. They offer some free themes which look like Pro themes. If you have no budget to buy the premium theme, I suggest you try MTS free themes for your blog.

WP Plugins that we are using:
Let’s talk about plugins which are currently active on this blog to enhance usability. Personally, I don’t like to use too many plugins because of some serious issues like slow downing site speed, security issues etc. I prefer to read users reviews first about any plugin before using it on your blog. Because a poorly coded plugin can be ruined your entire blog and may cause of security vulnerability.
Some Best WordPress Plugins are WordPress SEO by Yoast, SEO Friendly Images, Contact Form7, SEO smart links, Insight, DB Optimize and WP Smush.it are the major plugins that empowered MTH. Opps the one I forget is WP Better Security to increase security measures.
I have done some mistakes in the past, the big one is not publishing articles continuously in other words “Irregularity in Publishing fresh Content”. You may know, it is important to publish unique articles regularly if you want to get a high rank. But now I am highly focusing on this point to improve it. Also, personally I am studying SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in depth to learn new things.
The 2nd mistake is changing blog appearance many times, I study somewhere that it is not a good practice to change appearance frequently like changing site navigation, may it can make problems for bots and crawlers to understand your site. (I don’t know this practice is good or bad). Everyone learns from their mistakes and failures. As someone says “A smooth sea never make a skilled sailor”.
Future Plan and Goals:
MTH is currently hosted on Bluehost and hosting package nearly expires. I am planning to change web hosting company with HostGator because Bluehost is a little bit costly. However, Hostgator is also known as a great web hosting for WordPress blogs. The overall performance of BlueHost webhosting is great and site loading time is around 3-5 seconds. Also, may I will change the current theme with Thesis or Genesis framework because these are known as the best.
Something about the MTH team:
I also want to say THANKS to MTH team members who writes amazing articles for our online community. MTH team consist of couples of guys, who are not professional in blogging but have good experience in blogging. They have a passion for sharing their blogging experience and tips with an online community, so they join this platform. But we are looking for more experienced writers, if you are interested then please go to Guest Posting page for more details.
I hope guys you may like my blogging journey, success, failures, and achievements. Let me know about your blogging story.
