It has been said that don’t judge a book by its cover, but in this case, your headline is all what that matters.

No matter how popular a site is, it always has a thirst of reviews. Write Reviews for big websites related to your niche, like Alexa and try to link back to your site in the review. This will bring you a lot of followers from there.
58. sound different:
Try to adopt something that becomes unique about you and your blog. People are already getting so much of the content on the big websites with big business ratings on the internet, then where and how will you run your industry with the same typical ingredients? You definitely need to introduce an X-factor to your readers, gaining their confidence.
59. Cherish the Top Ones, get cherished too!

Try to make up your image as an intelligent and sharp one in the market. at least fake it- till you make it!
62. Show your followers the other side:
It’s a natural practice that when something becomes a hot talk topic, almost every blog starts to promote the news. These news are somehow of the same type. Try to represent the latest issues with a different perception, for example, Take a look at a celebrity that has a lot of fans and write a post on why he is not supposed to have any fan. Think smart!

68. Sound Professional:
This is something I have witnessed very often on several blogs. The authors address the world as if they are family members, forgetting the real nature of relation. i.e. they are the business clients. Using words like “oh yea”, “hmm”, “yes dude”. Etc. is not a professional and creative approach. People have plenty of friends already and they don’t want unnecessarily funny and over articles to be a source to waste their time on. Many people won’t link to unprofessional articles.
