Friends, today i am writing about my 5 months of blogging experience.
Friends I had actually told you that I will be giving information about how to choose application server today.
I happened to speak to my ex colleague the other day. The question she asked is a very sharp question. She asked me tell me what I did to start.
I am writing about steps to start a blog or website. They just want to do what I did .
Registration with blogger
What I did is very simple. first of all, I registered with blogger .I selected free domain name suggested by blogger. Designing a layout, choosing a theme, posting , and giving search description tags was the next step. I even put labels.
Registration with wordpress
I felt WordPress was better platform. WordPress had two sites wordpress.org and wordpress.com. I registered with WordPress.com for a premium account buying the domain ideas for sure.com. Now I had to set up the site. It is very easy. I used verity theme and with drag and drop I set up the site. Actually setting up WordPress .com site is not difficult. Here are free and paid themes . In one blog I have read about blogger using themeforest to select themes which is paid theme.selecting the right theme will help plugins to function effectively.
monetising the website
I even monetised the website with word ads . Better to integrate monetisation LIKE WORD ADS after receiving organic traffic. You receive payment if ads are clicked. This payment is for allowing ads to be placed on your site. Affiliate links and product images can be used for monetising the blog.
In this competition getting a view is very difficult. After listening to neil patels pod cast, reading Christian Mihai’s Art of blogging, and Shout me loud from harsh agarwal I realised improving the quality of my content was crucial. write short sentences. Active voice. Conveying some useful message which will help others to learn and do better. My blog should satisfy someone’s need. It should be a solution to someone’s problem.
I read some product reviews of Amazon products and realized how much it is essential for an affiliate to do the study of the product keeping in mind its use and benefit to the customer. Price advantage, replacement or refund guarantee should be emphasized. Not only that in this world it is very necessary for an affilliate like me to make people realise the advantages of online marketing. Converting regular purchasers to sub affiliates and guide them to earn and make good this opportunity.
I thought of buying the Business plan . I got Yoast SEO and some plugins. This helps in many ways.
Read others post
After hearing neil patel’s podcast where he said Read others blog and offer your comments. Do not be negative . Avoid comments like Nice post etc. You tell what you liked in that post. This I did sincerely .Reading least 3-4 blogs a day and mentioned what I liked. Every blog gives an insight about their life some about their hobbies, some about their occupation some about their reading habits and some about their blogging experience. Not only that you get knowledge about style of writing, vocabulary, site architecture etc etc. Neil patel message is in 3-4 main points.
READERS BECAME FOLLOWERS
After buying SEO the remark I got was no SEO issues.
why visitors are low?
I read a post 5 steps to get 1000 visitors to your blog daily.
In this blog he speaks of speed of site. He says assess your site opening speed with Page speed Insight or pingdom tools.I did it. what did I find my site speed is 39 which means it is slow 49-89 is average. what do I do? I first changed some of my settings disabled some and enabled some. My speed increased to 76 now . I have to increase my page speed to 90. Lets see how I do it.
I STARTED POSTING MY BLOG ON SOCIAL SITES LIKE FACEBOOK,TWITTER,TUMBLR, LINKEDIN . I have to give quality content to get more views.
I HAVE GIVEN DETAILS OF MY 5 MONTHS OF BLOGGING. LET ME SUMMARISE MY STEPS
HAVE A GMAIL ACCOUNT
APPLY FOR BLOGGER WITH GMAIL ACCOUNT
JUST MAKE YOUR DOMAIN FOR FREE ON BLOGGER
USE CHARTS/IMAGES FROM GOOGLE, PIXABAY
POST ON SOCIAL SITES, EMAIL, MESSENGER, WHATSAPP ETC

CONSISTENCY IN WRITING IS VERY MUCH IMPORTANT
