Please Stop Blogging for Numbers

Are you blogging for numbers?Blogging for numbers?

Are you doing it?

Thinking to do it?

Wanting to do it?

Compelled to do it?

Not getting results as you think you don’t have good numbers?

And so on… And on.. And on. The list of questions don’t stop popping up in your head, right?

You think that having low Alexa rank is affecting your blog to streamline the truck-load of traffic every hour?

You believe that your domain authority is killing your blog?

And page authority of your posts is too low that is hurting people to read your entire posts?

Social sharing numbers are zero to a few numerical numbers and not helping much?

Wow… comments.. You’re desperately waiting for them?

It’s all about the mindset actually. You cannot fight with it. And if you fight, you cannot win because it is the mindset already-setup deep inside the brains and hearts of other people.

You cannot insist someone to do when he/she has an addiction to something. Otherwise it will turn into a fight, if not a fight but into abuses and curses.

The better is to just give a good pause at the beginning and not jump into defending what you had said and what you meant by. Just keep quiet and do not respond back to clear up your stance.

And the same I did last day.

I happened to join a new blogging community where I answered to someone regarding PA (Page Authority) / DA (Domain Authority) as the questioning person asked how he can raise it.

I fired my simple answer with enormous simplicity by keeping my simplifying stance for that type of answer in front of me. It’s simple. Keep on writing on the related higher authority blogs and websites than yours in terms of comments and guest posting. Make your content share-able and link-able.

I answered;

It’s simple. Keep on writing on the related higher authority blogs and websites than yours in terms of comments and guest posting. Make your content share-able and link-able.

And most of it all, it takes time.. too much time to gain authority in the field.

And in the return, I didn’t expect to get such a reply from someone other than the questioning guy;

most of big sites has some nofollow thing, so even we comment with our link, its always no follow frowning secondly what i observed is, write write and write then just wait and pray to God and it wil improve your DA and PA ? stuck_out_tongue

Okay, I understood. I think well enough that what that reply meant from the guy. I very well know what really requires to get the Page Authority and Domain Authority. But I am here to NOT blogging for numbers, seriously!

I meant in the answer to portray that I suggest as I do for myself to keep interacting with them to help them grow so ultimately they help me to grow as well but this strategy is not for just helping to get helped. It is to be remembered by them that I am their avid readers and one of their loyal audience as I love to share the great content nonetheless where it is coming from.

And mind it! Published DoFollow/Do-Follow comments and links can be deleted anytime. And even cannot be approved. Don’t deny the fact.

And I always say to make your content link-able and share-able. The problem-solving content to help your readers who are craving for the assistance.

If I share with what he later replied with an answer to that person, I believe it was what I actually had said in the first place. Just that I don’t know why he mocked at first.

Why I actually don’t care for numbers?

Simply enough! I want to make myself, my name an authority in the field not just my blog. I don’t hide behind the keyword-rich author name to target my main keyword. I don’t have a keyword-backed domain name. And why should I as I want to make myself/my name an authority in my field?

Another reason why I REFUSE to do blogging for numbers

Even I have low page authority and domain authority, I am known by not all but many renowned, superb and very professional bloggers who are so friendly.


Because I am here to make good connections to mutually get benefited. I love to put myself appearing in their news feed more. Interacting with them more. Engaging with them more. And promoting them more.


Just because I want to become an authority in my field and this can only happen when you have great connections with everyone working in the field.

So, I don’t just go to their website:

  • To leave my URL.
  • To target an anchor text to dig the strong keywords alongside my domain name.
  • To leave my links buried in the comment.
  • To vanish from the scene after knowing the websites are locked with nofollow tag.

Actually I never ever looked/researched to know if any website I visit is a nofollow thingie. In this competitive world, are there still the people who only care for no-follow thing and not wanting to return back to the websites in future?

I doubt that if any does. I mean why anyone would?

People now are well-aware of these types of things. And the big guns quickly set the nofollow thing and would have it set up from long ago. It’s not a magic to set it up the entire blog as a nofollow, right?

But who would still NOT have nofollow thingie setup at all?

The ones who don’t know. Who are just stepping in blogosphere. And just sniffing for a dofollow websites and blogs, you’ll just find out too new, non-focused, irrelevant blogs and websites not from your niche better say industry.

And then are you going to target just them? Then not going to put an effort up on the table to touch the nofollow big guns?

If that’s the case. I am sorry of your mindset. And fighting with this mindset is a harmful blow for me. That is the very reason I skipped to reply to that particular person on that particular thread.

What I do rather than blogging for numbers?

Sorry if you’re blogging for numbers but I DO NOT. I really NOT and I do NOT want to do it.

But what I do;

  • To make good connections with everyone regardless of their and theirs Alexa, PA, DA, Klout. etc. ranks.
  • To engage and keep interacting with them on social media sites to make the relationship stronger.

Relationship counts. It does for sure and without any kind of doubt. And it takes time.. too much time.

Go on make relationships with people and not with their blogs and websites. A person today with lower ranks can possibly become an influential person later, mind it!

Call To Action, yup!

Okay, it’s now yours turn. Tell me what would you do if you ever came across the similar situation as mine? What do you do the blogging for; for numbers? What you can add more for me?

I’d love to hear your valuable thoughts on the core topic; Stop blogging for numbers.
