Poor Keyword Planning
What is keyword planning? Keyword planning is researching words that are frequently searched on google for a particular niche. Although for niches like Entertainment & Gossip, News & Politics your success relies heavily on social media engagements like Facebook, Twitter.
To be a successful blogger in any niche, you must research for keywords in that niche that are searched frequently on Google.
To research for relevant keywords, I recommend you use Google Keyword Planner or keywordtool.io a free tool with limited features. These tools help you know relevant keywords that are frequently searched by users for a particular blog Niche in Nigeria, with estimated monthly searches.

This is a great tool can help you organize your content and target your prospective audience and improve your Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
Submission of sitemap to Search Engines
Search engines like Google have to be notified when you create a new blog. But before you do this make sure you have added pages, and posts to your new blog before submitting it to Google.
To do this you have to generate a sitemap with a free sitemap site generator tool. For WordPress users install the Yoast plugin, it will help you generate your sitemap. Once your sitemap has been generated submit to Google. Google notifies you when it starts indexing your pages and posts.
Google can still crawl your blog even if you don’t submit your sitemap but that process will take a longer time.
Poor Content Quality
Google ranks pages or posts higher with long quality contents.When your contents solve people their problems, the truth is, they will keep coming back. That is why you need to write quality contents that will engage your prospective audience. Give room for comments so that your audience can connect to you well.
