How to start an blog

Starting a blog is easy but maintaining & growing its audience is some what difficult. But don’t be panic. Be patience, follow the following steps & implement the suggestions, you will definitely grow. I will also tell you how to make money with your blog.

1. Choose Right Niche for Your Blog

This is the most important part of your blogging journey. It gives you direction to work upon. But which niche is best for you. You might sucked here. You may found difficulty to decide and or to choose it. It is quite obvious, because everyone saying niche should be unique. But my view is different. You can choose any niche, even a popular one, but you must have deep knowledge on that subject. Because you have to write better than others. You should be passionate also on this topic. Otherwise / else you will not sustain in this field. 99 % blogger quit within 6 months. Its only due to lack of passion.

At the time of deciding Niche, keep this three thing in you mind :

Popularity – Before deciding, do some research on your niche. How much people are interested to know about it, is the key factor of your success. If audience is bigger and eager to know, read & gather the information on this niche , you easily grab the opportunity of growth. For that you can use available tools in market like Google Trends, Semrush, Ahref etc to see the daily search volume on this subject. Here you have one thing to consider. High popularity Niche has high competition & high DA (Domain Authority) websites are being engaged into that. You might be suppressed in google search by those webmasters. Hence a medium popularity niche may be better for beginners.

Knowledge – Your knowledge on chosen topic matters. You can write a article only if you have knowledge of the subject. Please don’t plan to cut ‘n’ paste idea from available resources on internet. It will never help you and might affect adversely.

Market Value (Profitability) – Commercial aspect is important. You have to see, whether you get return or not. For that, you have to do some research of the market. Look affiliate opportunity are available or not, because this is the main source of income of blogger. Another source is Google Adsense. For some niche, google does not approve your website, in that case you will lack from a major source of income. Sponsorship is a another source, but for that you have to keep marketing for yourself.

If you still have doubt & go through case studies / examples , please read my another article Choose a perfect niche to keep trending & be profitable.

Choose a short & catchy Domain Name

This is the another most valuable aspect of upcoming blog. A short & catchy domain name easily memorable & reside on tongue permanently. However there are so many other things also that have to consider while choosing a domain name, which I written in my another article How to buy a domain – Avoid these common mistake that even expert do.. For here, just try to choose a short, catchy & easily pronounceable name. One more thing has to consider that it should not be a black listed Domain by Google or does not belongs to Spam Database. With such type of domain, google approval is impossible & you will loose monetization potential of adsense. For that I had suggested two very useful tool in above said article which will help you to avoid this adverse situation.
