WordPress backup plugins can fail, so learn the manual method just in case. It's not hard at all.

What new bloggers should focus on to help grow their blogs...  Thanks +Ana Hoffman 
 
Blogging 101: How does a NEW blogger KNOW what to focus on to find success in growth hacking their blog?

Wouldn't it be great to know that before starting a blog? And let others make all the mistakes starting from scratch so that YOU can benefit from their wisdom?

That's exactly what +Matt Banner's recent expert poll is about.

He asked 30 bloggers 'who've been there, 've done that' (I was one of them; others included +Rand Fishkin, +Kristi Hines, +Yaro Starak, +Eric Siu+Adam Connell, +John Paul Aguiar, and many more) and here are their responses.

Some of my favorites:

“I think new bloggers need to have a solid understanding of their field and their audience, and be deeply empathetic." - +Rand Fishkin 
"The mistake I see a lot of new bloggers making is spending a lot of time writing content for their blogs before they even have an audience." +Glen Long 

“Before you even launch your site, spend time zeroing in on gaps and holes that exist in a niche." +Lisa Irby 

"Think of a good reason to write about influential people in their niche on their blog. For example, do interviews or group posts." +Ian Cleary 

"There is only one thing that has really moved the needle for me since I started out as a babe in the woods blogging. Networking." +Ashley Faulkes 

“Every blogger should be considering this question: What do I want to be know an authority in?" +martin shervington 

... and many, many more. Read Matt's post below to find more gems.

Are you happy with your site's bounce rate?  It may not be as bad as you think.  Find out why you can't just look at that number as a whole and declare it "good" or "bad".  It's time to squash some bounce rate myths.

Gary Lee gets to do what a lot of people want to do... openly share his ranking frustrations with John Mueller of Google. He's sick of playing by the rules only to see spam rank ahead of him.  On one hand he makes great points, but on the other, this is precisely why relying on Google too much is a dangerous game.  I've personally seen the spam/junk issue get better but no doubt that's not true for every niche.  Thanks for sharing this clip +Ana Hoffman 
 
This is very relatable for most webmasters... When Google algorithm fails and there isn't much Google says/does about it

Gary Lee, a webmaster since 1993, started his respectable rant at around the 8:08 minute mark on yesterday's Google+ hangout with Google's +John Mueller and didn't finish until 13 and a half minute mark, so over 5 minutes of ranting.

Definitely worth listening to and thank to +Barry Schwartz for highlighting it in his post: http://tgcafe.it/1LHrVvu

Looking to make more online? The great thing about Udemy is that you can earn money even if you don't have a heavily trafficked site or social following. I'll be talking about my experience with selling courses and what I'm going to be doing MORE of in 2015.
