Experts Tips – Devesh Sharma from WPKube

Hi Devesh,

1. According to you, what/how would be the future of WordPress? Which CMS has the ability to beat WordPress?

WordPress is here to stay, mainly because of its flexibility.

There’s an amazing amount of free plugins and WordPress tutorials available that can help you create just any type of website without spending tens of thousands of dollars.

Many large content publishing and software companies use WordPress to power their websites including Nasa, Quartz, TechCrunch, Time, and Fortune.

In the upcoming years, we will be seeing a lot more people using WordPress for building web-based applications like HappyTables and RestaurantEngine.

2. Tell about your blogging strategies and important WP plugins which you’re using on your blog.

There are plenty of blogging and marketing strategies that you can use to improve your site, but I have only tested a handful of them such as Guest Posting, Blog Commenting, Publishing Quality Content, and Networking. I will explain each one of them in a minute.

Guest Posting

I know Google has said that Guest blogging is dead, but it is still very much alive if it is done properly. Here’s a great article about why guest blogging isn’t dead by WordStream.

Blog Commenting

I use to comment on other people’s blogs to generate traffic; it gave me some great results and helped me attract new guest authors on my previous site – Technshare. Now, I use this strategy as a part of networking.

Creating quality content

The time is over when you could get away with publishing 500 words post (yes, there are a few exceptions), if you really want to succeed with marketing, then you need to write quality posts. The quickest way to start by is building resource pages like I did with my WordPress Handbook post.

Networking

It essentially means building a relationship with other bloggers. You don’t have to be a big-time blogger or authority figure to start networking. You just need to have a good Twitter/Facebook profile. Having your own blog is a plus, as it will help you with your overall brand.

Apart from the above-mentioned strategies, I also use social media tools such as JustRetweet, ViralContentBuzz, Buffer app, and Triberr to help me get more social media shares.

Here are some WordPress plugins that I use:

WordPress SEO by Yoast – It is one of the best and most powerful plugins available for WordPress.

Gravity Forms – Gravity Forms is a fantastic form management solution for WP. It is very useful for creating a different type of forms.

nRelate – nRelate is a third-party related post plugin. It comes with highly configurable settings which allow you to display different designs of related posts. And it doesn’t consume a lot of resources because it utilizes the nrelate servers.

Floating Social Bar – Lets you add five social media buttons to your site.

Akismet – Akismet is the best solution for protecting your website from webspam.

OptinMonster – This one is a bit expensive WordPress plugin but provides the essential features to build a powerful email list. Just check the OptinMonster Review and make sure to get it for effective list building. 

3. I’ve read your interviews and have seen you in expert’s list at many times! Just say, how bloggers can get a good reputation in Blogosphere?

Thanks. Well, it is all about building your brand image and relationship with influential bloggers.

4. Why WordPress is your preferred niche? Provide some helpful tips to maintain a healthy WordPress blog.

When I started Technshare, WordPress was the topic that I often wrote about. And I was also doing a lot of freelance work at that time. So it was a natural progression to start a resource site solely focused on WordPress.

Write Consistently

Publishing new content consistently will help you get regular subscribers. It doesn’t have to be daily; you can set the schedule to weekly, or even monthly. The only thing that really matters here is that you stick to a regular schedule.

Keep regular backups

This is something that you need to take very seriously, even if your blog is just a few weeks old or doesn’t generate any serious revenue. Things like server crash, blogs get hacked and developers messing up the site, happens more often than you think. So it’s important that you take some time out and set up a decent backup solution. 

Optimize your site for Search engines

One of the first things that you need to do to maintain a healthy WordPress blog is to optimize your site for search engines. You should start by installing WordPress SEO or All-in-one SEO plugin.

Site speed and responsive design – None of these things use to matter up until a few years ago, but now they do, in fact, according to a study was done by SearchMetrics, site speed is one of the major factors that Google takes into account when ranking a website.

5. Name some blogs that inspire you the most. Tell about future plans. Also, give your advice for the people who want to blog in WordPress medium.

Backlinko – Brian Dean, because he shares simple yet effective actionable tips on link building.

Blogging Wizard – I have seen first-hand how Adam Connell created a powerful blogging resource for bloggers, and it only took him a few months to go from zero to thousands of visitors per month. If you want to get some feasible advice on blogging and social media, then you may follow this guy.

My current plan is to keep helping WordPress users when I can through my WordPress resource site. I am planning on releasing a few free themes and plugins before the end of 2014. I also plan to become a regular contributor on authority sites in my niche such as SEJ and SEMRush.

If your sole focus is to start a WordPress related site to do theme roundups or generate money via promoting theme shops, then don’t because it has become a very crowded (and competitive) niche in the recent years. There are a lot more sites about WordPress than there were before.

But creating a WordPress resource site is not hard; you can do it, considering you are willing to put a lot of work and efforts into the project.

Thanks a lot, Devesh for spending your valuable time to offer your helpful answers for my readers. I hope that your responses would engage my pretty readers well.

  1. Hi Nirmala,
    what an interesting interview you made here!

    I’ve heard about Devesh since when I started blogging back in 2010,
    he’s a very experienced marketer.

    He shared great blogging tips here.
    I don’t use a plugin or third service to backup my site,
    I do it manually, every month (on my desktop pc and on my 2 Tera external hard disk).

    I like also the statement about guest blogging.
    I recently started again to contribute to other sites.
    As mentioned, if used properly, I believe is really powerful!
    (And Google safe).

    May I ask Devesh a question?
    What happened to Blokube?
    I see it is down, since few weeks already.

    Thanks to Devesh for the suggestions.
    And thank you Nirmala for such interesting information!
