Blogging is all about experiments and knowledge of demand.
Knowing about proper market and your audience is the key to get success in online world. And if you are going to fulfill people's need through your blog then you are going to reap real fruits in very short time.
I got the idea after reading few awesome blogs like SmartPassiveIncome and Entrepreneurs-Journey. I read about them and found that they started their blogs after finding little market and kept on building them to get more loyal readers. The best thing I learnt is; your readers are your main promoters, so if you pass to deliver what they want then they are going to do free of cost advertisement for you.
This is called word-of-mouth advertisement and one of the best advertisement in this world.
If you will succeed in finding your audience then almost 50% of the problem is already solved.
So here my story begins.
Around 3 months back I got one idea to start a tech blog to share few tips only. A kind of blog where people will get almost all of the tech tips (I am giving my best to cover many categories).
Note: I am not going to disclose my blog's name, URL, any keyword or anything related to my blog here.
I am not sharing anything here because this happened with two of my friends when they shared their story on their blog and few people stole their data and study.
Read case 1 and to read more about the stories I am talking about.
So just for my security I am not going to talk anything about my blog, but don't worry because I am going to share exact procedure to take that blog to this level.
Here are screenshots of my blog's traffic
My blog is 3 months old but I have stats of last 2 months only, as I installed GA code after one month.
How I got the idea to start this blog?
I keep reading many blogs daily and always looking forward to get ideas from them.
My favorite time pass is to visit various forums and read inspirational stories. So we always get ideas by visiting forums and reading real life stories.
One day I was visiting one forum and found that many people were asking one specific category questions and only few of those questions were getting answered.
So my duty as a blogger was to provide them what they were looking. 🙂
I bought one good-looking domain from GoDaddy and started building my blog around it. I was amazed to see that I started getting results within first 4-5 days.
Note: I installed my Google Analytics code 1 month later I started my blog.
Many people were coming on brand new blog and this was very good news for me.
How I got the traffic?
Now this is the crucial question and the main point why you visited my article. 🙂
Around 4-5 months back I was completely unaware about the importance of keyword research and I always took it very lightly.
One day I bought Long Tail Pro and started using it. As this was very new software for me, so I started using it more and learning the best ways to use it wisely.
I was completely amazed to see that there were few keywords which people were searching but there were not many articles to teach them.
I started targeting only those keywords on my blog and writing article around them only.
How I got more writing ideas?
This was very new experience for me and I was totally stunned with this new discovery.
I started visiting more forums and looking for more questions.
One guy in one forum is asking : How can I make a USB bootable for installing MAC OS on my laptop?
I will just find main keyword from this question like “Installing MAC OS using bootable pendrive” and then feed this main keyword into Long Tail Pro.
Then I will analyze that what kind of keywords people are searching to solve this query.
And I will keep changing my keywords around this question until I will find a potential keyword.
Potential keywords mean here is; atleast 1000 people are searching for that particular keyword.
How am I writing those articles?
I have hired 3 guys from Facebook for that tech blog and they are writing articles as per my keywords.
Till now this blog has given me $113 in 10 days and for sure it is going to cross $300 this month. I haven't started using any other monetizing methods for this blog.
Note: I have shared AdSense earning of that blog only.
Next month I am going to apply my blog on BuySellAds and then this blog will start giving me real money. 😉
Next target is to reach 25000+ pageviews till the end of this month and monetize atleast $1500 per month from next month. let's see where I will take this blog.
Now your turn!
Hope you are going to use my tested ideas to start a new blog and taking your blog to a new level very soon.
All the very best to you.
