So I normally watch YouTube videos about blogging and how different bloggers share their experiences about it.Seriously IT. IS. NOT. SO. EASY.Why?
Massive Content Creation
Now, blogging is tough. You can’t have ordinary blogs. For example if you have a blog about haircare. You google it and see there are TONS of blogs writing way WAY better than you about hair care, they have a really nice blog which shows
1) Table of contents
2) Their own images3) Youtube videos4) Long detailed blogs like 1000-1500 words which google likes5) Internal linking, backlinking.6) SEO friendly.7) References at the end.In short, its EPIC.Competition is tough.There are millions of people writing and publishing this very second, some are experts while some research really good.Well, what do you have to do?
According to this guy (See youtube video link): https://youtu.be/MhTIgwjPFvYYou have to publish 30 to 40 blogs HIGH QUALITY blogs PER DAY.I repeat. PER. DAY.Now that is a lot of work.But he explains only publishing unique 30-40 articles per day will get you that 10k traffic daily.So in other words, one has to create content MASSIVELY, in order to be a successful blog.And in 2020, thanks to, quarantine and excessive exposure to the internet, now everyone has a blog or a youtube channel its not even in demand anymore.I can’t write more than 2 blog posts per day honestly. Those who write good stuff daily are the real MVPs.
High Quality Videos And Images
Now if you upload images which are UNIQUE and videos which support your content, you are more likely to get more traffic.
Articles and blogs if they are not seo friendly, they won’t be easily searchable and if they are not easily searchable, obviously no one will care about it.
Backlinking is hard. You have to convince other bloggers to direct THEIR traffic to you because well, you are giving them an ego boost. Anyways, backlinking is hard work, gather bloggers, their contact info, convince them to support you etc etc.See how blogging expert Neil Patel explains it. https://youtu.be/MhTIgwjPFvY
Unique And Error Free Work
Although we are human and screwing up is human, but silly mistakes like typos and wrong spellings is enough for readers to think that this blog is a waste of time.Grammarly is a major help in this.
The Right Niche
You have to find the right niche. Otherwise you done. Find WHAT can you write about regularly because if you make this wrong niche error, blogging will become a chore.
Well Researched And Bullet Points
Reading long paragraphs is boring. No one does it. Many just skip a paragraph and open a new blog so its better to do really high research and use bullet points. They are quick to read, gives the other person an idea and they get the info they are searching for.So this was my piece or rant on how blogging is super compeitive now, thanks to everyone being a blogger now and how ranking on google is really tough.(All gifs taken from google images)Here is a short video about blogging tips for new bloggers: https://youtu.be/WT8QOFAIYTc
