HUSH… The secret to making money as a blogger.. revealed
Some say that traffic is money…
Some say that money is in the list…
There are others who have tried and tested and tweaked many ways of making money as a blogger.
The latest craze is that of guest blogging and I have done that too.
When I started seekdefo I thought that once I had 700 unique visitors per day I would be making money.
The reason for that thinking was that I was observing another blog that had 700 visitors per day and it was making 2.5k per month.
So my logic was simple… 700 unique visitors per day would mean money.
The blog also had around 500 posts. So that got me thinking that I was supposed to garner 500 posts and started posting 3 posts everyday and on some days 6 posts.
The blog also had a page rank of 3. That meant I should get a page rank three too.
The first 3 months were spent on getting a page rank, I wrote 60 posts and the unique visitors became around 40.
So did I make money with this blog.
No I did not.
The blog I mentioned earlier was sold to a different person because it was not making any money.
The reason( I will tell you shortly)
This person is the one who took it to its height of glory and the reason was the kind of posts he wrote.
New bloggers, I have seen are passionate, they write brilliantly but quit after sometime because their blog doesn’t make any money.
The reason is that in their brilliant articles and writing they do not focus on the words and topics that they should actually pay attention to.
These are what I call the money keywords.
I have detailed all of that in my free e book, but I will complete what I started.
Money keywords are the terms which people search for, for buying a thing. Money keywords should also satisfy a second criteria that of being low competition.
Using a tool called SEM Rush I began observing what the money keywords were for that particular blog.
And I discovered the secret behind making money from a blog…
I started focussing on those keywords and started writing articles that solved people’s problems and provided real answers instead of being vague.
The brilliant posts which many newbies write are in a sorry state of being “vague”.
People search for answers on the web and while they appreciate your writing, its going to take a lot of time making money that way.
Instead of blogging whatever comes to your mind why not focus on what is bringing traffic and money to others’ blogs and re create that on your blog.
I started doing SEO.
Do you know what SEO means? It means providing answers to the questions that people are searching for- That’s all.
It’s so obvious now that I didn’t even need to draw any arrows this time! It’s crystal clear that the page on my blog with the highest number of impressions in Google search is the one at the top of the list: How To Get Your First 2,000 Twitter Followers
and this is what I got from semrush
What Ileane said in so many words in her post the same thing I told you in a picture.
I think you got an idea of the power I give to you.
You can make money off blogging.
My method of money keywords focuses on those questions which not only are people searching for but can also make you a living online.
And I use SEM Rush( its free with some limits) for that.
I also have written an e book which has a complete case study of making a money minting blog, and the book is free for you, my readers.
So if you would like to dip into a ton of free traffic then from Google then follow my way and you will make money.
