    i think Attractive Pictures + Social Media

  1. Samantha On April 28th, 2011 at 7:49 am

    I vote for Content as making a blog most successful.
    The reason I say this is because people want fresh and new information. Same as the search engines really.. If there is no fresh and new content regularly, people wont come back, and people wont refer you to others :)

  1. Mucocaxi On April 28th, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Well, a balance between all the items would be the best.

  1. Asif On April 29th, 2011 at 4:53 am

    I also vote for content which makes the blog successful. It makes your blog more standout and people are always looking for quality content.


  1. Ovsyannykov On April 29th, 2011 at 5:55 am

    Yeah, the content is the most vital part. Even if the design is ugly, i would still read the articles.

  1. Ashok On April 30th, 2011 at 6:58 am

    I agree with Mr. Ovsyannykov suggestion..

  1. Sandra On April 30th, 2011 at 8:05 am

    I think it’s all together or better to say right balance between all points, and required balance for each blog can be different. Important is to find your own way.

  1. Magazine Designer On May 2nd, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Blogs are all about value and uniqueness, from the user’s perspective. SEO certainly helps in driving traffic, if that in itself qualifies as a “success.” Design adds credibility and makes the site more usable. But yes, content reigns supreme, and for the long-term success of any informational (i.e., non-marketing) site, fresh ideas and useful insights will always win over and keep users coming back. The web is, after all, a medium of idea exchange. I suppose for a highly focused design blog, the design itself could be considered part of a site’s intellectual value — but I still think written ideas take precedence in the vast majority of cases.

    Attractive Pictures are key to lure and interest people!

  1. Graphic Design Cleveland On May 4th, 2011 at 7:28 am

    I think content and SEO are the most useful. Even if a blog is attractive it is not necessarily interesting or useful.

  1. Juan Carlos Partidas On May 4th, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    I really think that Content is the most important reason to come back to a blog once and again. But Social Networking and SEO help people to know that your blog exists. Nevertheless, I think all the reasons above are important.

  1. Albany Web Design On May 5th, 2011 at 7:56 am

    All five are really required, and because of that it’s tough to pick one that is the most important in making a blog “successful.” A blog can be great without being successful and widely read, and what makes a great blog is the content above all else. Design and having attractive and relevant images are important too, and can really define a blog, but the most important thing is content.

    For a blog to be successful, it needs SEO and it needs some kind of social media support, but it has to be worth reading.

  1. Richard Ball On May 6th, 2011 at 2:35 am

    a Blog that is current and written well will always steer up an interest

  1. What makes a blog successful « TIM FREEMAN On May 8th, 2011 at 6:43 pm

    [...] Information from Graphic Design Blog [...]

  1. Graphic Designer On May 9th, 2011 at 7:07 am

    I should say design being a designer but it’s content for me. If the content isn’t of interest or relevance then it doesn’t matter how it looks or how many times I come across it on social media or SEO.

  1. dave On May 10th, 2011 at 4:02 am

    Have to agree with Richard - a blog is a unique and topical feed that is regularly updated with useful topical posts. SEO should come as a part of good writing.

  1. Litmusbranding On May 13th, 2011 at 1:28 am

    all things are much needed for the success of blog but the most thing needed is perfect content. Information and well written content should be the first priority but other should not be avoided.

  1. Simiramis On May 16th, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    a Blog that is current and written well will always steer up an interest

  1. Johnny On May 16th, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    Content is very important, but important content wrote in a chaotic and stressful environment makes me leave without reading anything, I would rather start looking for the same information in another website.

  1. shabnam On May 22nd, 2011 at 12:41 am

    I am not doing any SEO, My content is working!!!

  1. Tilen Hrovatic On September 12th, 2011 at 8:35 am

    Content is the most important part of the successful blog. If you have good content you can eventually get a lot of daily traffic and subscribers. If you have a lot of loyal readers and subscribers you don’t have to worry about SEO any more because you have people reading your blog every day because of the content and not because of keywords in your posts.

  1. Jess On November 2nd, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    I think content is by far the most important part of a blog, as obvious as that sounds.
