Making money blogging out of a blog is the common thing that most of the bloggers do. Thinking in the same view I planned to do something to play with money around. Although my intention was not making money but to improve my knowledge regarding Blogging and SEO.
Though I made some mistakes during the creation and maintenance process of this very blog I have taken some serious steps too which lead me to my destination.
How To Make $600 With An Event Based Blog
Revealing all rock steps that I have learned in few days.
Choosing An Awesome Custom Domain
The first step of-course a very important step when you are on with an Event Based Blogging. You have to choose a very catchy domain and should be related to event partially or completely. You should not rely on blogspot.com default sub-domain, you have to buy a custom domain.
It’s no wrong if you choose a domain by searching keywords but make sure you don’t choose long tail keywords that embarrass visitor.
If your blog is about cooking, try domains like “cookingspot.com“, “cookingcorner.com” not as “iliketocook.com“, “cookingismyhobby.com“. Long domains are hardly attractive and are only clickable if and only if they are highly advertised.
Due to some security reasons, I cant able to reveal my website name here.
Choosing A Completely Responsive, Attractive and Easy to Navigate Template
Making your blog or website responsive is your responsibility. You should not be done with making your website attractive but also responsive. Visitors are likely to leave your website if your website looks awkward in mobile or tablet. Take time for mobile visitors as they also play the key role in website statistics. Give them an easy way to navigate from one page to another page easily for all type of users.
As said above, in order to select a responsive and attractive template I selected one of the default templates in blogger and edited it myself according to my convenience and it went well.
Meta Tags and Meta Descriptions:
One of the main key play roles is meta tags and descriptions. As I’m using AdWords it was not that hard for me to find out high SERP keywords to set in meta tags and wrote a catchy description in the meta description.
Content Is King
Of-course the content is king. No matter what ever I do on my website if there is no sufficient content I’m going nowhere with my website. I tried to be more efficient, reliable and genuine while writing content as visitors should get a unique experience.
Making Content Beautiful for Both Visitors and Search Engines
Unless my content is represented in beautiful manner visitor doesn’t stay way long on my website. I tried to represent the data in a beautiful and attractive way by choosing relative images and relative and long tail keywords.
I used Google Adwords for Keywords and Long tail keywords. Keywords are the only things which helped me to make my website to do good in SERP. I selected some high priority keywords and inserted them in between content. I also used a number of keywords, although it comes under black hat technique as mine is an event based blog I didn’t care about the danger of un-indexing my blog from SERP.
Better Title for Better SEO
Selecting the title is next to the main important thing. I made all the titles looks like the most searched queries from AdWords. You just have to select a most searched query from adwords and insert into the title and mainly prefer for long keywords which are otherwise called as Long Tail Keywords. Titles that have high priority keywords which are in H1 tags are the heart to the website and it was in my mind all the time.
Spreading the Word
Nothing but sharing. Sharing includes one of the best SEO technique that is commenting on other blogs similar to our blog. I chose many of the blogs which are related to my event and made comments on those websites.
One point that you have to clearly observe is commenting on other blogs is mostly done for the boost of Alexa rank but here I used the same technique to spread my website among admins and other viewers because there is no niche for wishes and no boundaries for people to wish.
Sharing mainly includes the use of Social Networking Sites mainly Google+. If you are thinking about Facebook you are absolutely wrong. Facebook is the next thing that should be considered but before that, I went to Google+ because it will share the post among the people in our circle and next big thing is Google automatically indexes the content to the in its directory. Ultra fair, isn’t it?
Master of SEO Tools Webmaster Tools
The frequent thing I used while developing my event based blog is webmaster tools. I used it every often time and I used it to submit my site’s sitemap every day without fail. I also made use of Fetch as Google tool as it also helps in indexing the site’s data very fast.
As a result, I got traffic of about 110000 visitors (both new and returning) which earned about $623 in just one day with an RPM of 9 as I made AdSense as my primary income method.
