Find a proper Niche for blogging
So, you planned to start a blog. Before everything, you must choose a topic (niche) to blog for. You are in the position to tell people on what is your blog is about? What you going to offer for your visitors?
For an example, you may see my blog is about "Online Money Making", where I would share all my experience in online money making field and I update my blog with latest news and information's on How to make money blogging?
In a similar way it is your duty to choose the topic you are familiar with because you are in position to update your blog almost every day.
Do Research on your Niche and plan your path
The topic itself says that you have to conduct certain research such as Competition, trend, opportunities likewise the same for the keyword you chooses for your blogging.
Because let's say if you choose "Make money online" for your blogging, I am sure that you have to put five times of your effort to get your blog to stand among the others in Google search result. Make money online already saturated and most of the blogs were already given enough details about the topic.
People use to visit new blogs if that blog having something different to convey the information. So, you have to work very hard to make your blog to stand out from the rest.
Plan your path:
Make money online is a wide range niche and a variety of online jobs available. At beginning start your blog explaining about one particular online money making method and then start growing your blog to cover further more related sub-topics on your niche.
List your top 5 Keywords and related LSI keywords
List any of top 5 Keywords for the niche you had decided for blogging. Write 5 - 10 articles by interchanging words in the keywords for posting in your blog.
It is better advised to use LSI keyword strategy for ranking. LSI keywords are basically the same keywords that are semantically related to your primary keywords. You can try ranking your site for LSI because your doors are freely opened and you might have a big chance to rank well in the market.
Let me explain you with an same example, Instead of creating a blog for "Make money blogging", try targeting your keyword for a keyword phrase such as "How to make money by monetizing your blog?", "How to make money from Google AdSense?", Like that so and so., This way you can get more chances of being ranked well in search results.
Choose proper blog Name
Choose a proper keyword rich domain name for your blog. Keep in mind your domain name should consist of your primary keyword which you are targeting for ranking your blog.
If your keyword was "Make Money Blogging", probably chances are less to get exact matching domain names because it is already overwhelmingly used. You can try instead of finding a domain name with those three words related to the above keyword.
Set up your blog
So you are almost traveling in a straight right path in your making money online career. So you have,
— chosen a well know familiar niche,
— drawn out some primary keywords,
— having some 5 - 10 articles in hand,
— a keyword rich domain name.
It is time to register your domain and get your dream blog live in internet.
You can go with a free domain from WordPress, Google blogger etc, but if you had a thought of having a long term money making plan from blogging, then it is must to go with a own domain.
I would admit you go with Godaddy or Reseller Club for your web hosting. There you can find cheap affordable prices for your Wordpress hosting. Prices for domain and hosting may start from Rs125/- and Rs99/- per month.
Add Google Analytics and Web Masters
Once your blog was ready it's time to submit your blog to Google. Add Google Analytics code in your website to track your visitors, to monitor their behaviours and many more factors that might related to your blog so as you can optimize your blog for visitors.
Also submit your site to Google Search Console formerly known Google Webmasters. This is a free tool that automatically audits your website and provides report telling you where to concentrate more for improvements in your blog. It helps webmasters to convert their blog or website to Google friendly in order to make Google to rank their websites.
If your website does not comply with Google webmasters guidelines, then you will be not able to rank your website at any stage. Without Google your make money blogging career will be like a day dream.
Write quality contents and update your blog everyday
As I said above in this article, visitors will come to your site only if your site delivers some different information's among other website in your niche. Once visitors start loving your content, probably Google will rank your website because Google became so smart enough to evaluate a website.
Create a blog for people and not for search engines, because search engines bots are clever enough to evaluate your website.
At the beginning, you might have 5 - 10 articles that you have posted already, but your work does not stop here. You have to make continue researches about something new in your niche and start posting new articles with your primary keywords.
My best suggestion would be post new keyword rich article every alternate day in your blog. Because people love reading what is New?. Search engines also love to see new contents in your blog every day which helps your chance of ranking high in their search results.
Be descriptive about a particular topic with more than 1500 - 2000 words in an article. This indirectly tells Google and visitors that you are serious in researching about that topic and explaining them which will give more authority to your blog.
Add Social platforms such as facebook, Twitter, Google plus, Linkedin etc in your blog which helps visitors to share your work among their networks if they found that it will be useful. Make money blogging is a business and treat this like a real business and only by doing so you will achieve success.
Create social profile pages with your blog name and add them in your website. Social linking is one of the important ranking factors which Google will consider in ranking your blog. Create a brand name by linking all social profiles with your blog.
Do share each and every updates of your blog in those social networks to get quality referral traffic. Whenever you publish a new article share them in Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.
As I revealed there are so many masters, gurus, and other people who already been there in make money blogging field. In every business, one must need to establish a smooth relationship with other who was already in their field.
Visit other bloggers blog and appreciate their work via their comment section which may lead to bring a back link to your blog or even the website owner you commented might reply you directly.
Do share a quality articles with your keyword in other bloggers blog to get quality backlink and targeted traffic. This process is called as Guest blogging, which is having the power of getting better ranking in search engines. Google calculates the quality of back links pointing to a website or blog for their ranking purposes.
Guest blogging plays a vital role in ranking factors framed by Google. It is good for On-page SEO and also leads a way to get targeted traffic. Be conscious in guest writing and don't scam or criticise any one because it will adversely affect your growth.
Start an Email Marketing Campaign
Once you having decent visitors flowing in your website, you can now start to build an email list, which can be later used to send updates and information to your subscribers about a new articles or any offers etc.
Update your readers via email whenever you update your blog as this might help to bring visitors back to your blog where you can get a chance to convert them into your customers or buyers.
Be loyal to your visitors, and gain authority where the secret stays behind a successful money making by blogging. With a list of decent email subscribers you can create a passive income for long time.
With use of proper email marketing campaign, it was proven that many blogs gained a quick much better ranking in search results.
Monetize your blog content
Here the actual part came, Make money blogging by monetizing your blog. With just your blog and having some articles in them and having some visitors to visit everyday will not make your money. Only way to make money by blogging is through proper content monetization along with marketing strategy.
You can make money through methods such as,
— PPC marketing,
— selling products,
—Affiliate link promotion,
—Affiliate product sales etc.
These are the ways you can make money from your blog. I already have written an article about How to make money with Google AdSense a top CPC, PPC marketing network.
Even you can take part in affiliate programs by choosing the products related to your keywords and thus promoting them in your blog brings you decent income every month. I recommend going with Commission Junction where you will be offered almost 35% to 50% as an affiliate sales commission.
If your blog is having real organic traffic you can attract direct advertisers to advertise their blog or products or services in your blog and you can earn money in this way also.
