“All blogging and no revenue make the blog owner a frustrated blogger”
I am writing this post exclusively for those newbies who enter the world of blogging to earn revenue. Nothing wrong in it but they often fail in spite of having excellent writing skills. Well in this post, I am going to start with the basics and will cover this post. I have seen many of my fellow blogger friends who had the potential but failed and never got up only because their initial foundation and their outlook towards blogging was in a wrong direction.
“The loftier the building, the deeper must the foundation be laid.”
Similarly in blogging, if you go about the basics in detail as to how to make your blog revenue friendly then you can’t go wrong. I will enlighten and reinforce the basics as to how to make your blog revenue friendly.
Google the PR10 website, most widely used search engine having number 1 Alexa rank and having most of the visitors from US. So my tips will be in accordance with the revenue generation program by Google or perhaps any Ads advertiser from which you need to earn now a days. People use Google for searching information, so the website which are primarily indexed in Google are informative portals. Informative portals are commercial blogs, news portals, question and answers websites.
So, Here I came up with some of the tips that you need to follow for generating income from your website :
Derive a high CPM (cost per milli rate)
You should have your own domain name, own hosting account. Free blogs like those on www.blogspot.com drive a very low CPM rate. Indeed I have seen many bloggers who loose most of the traffic when they transfer their domain from blogspot to their own hosting account.
To derive a high CPM rate, one should derive visitors from developed countries like US, UK, Canada. The CPM rate will go higher as the CPC campaigns are of higher value there and henceforth your CPC rate will be higher too.
Importance of blog niche
One can go to http://adwords.google.com/o/KeywordTool for the high CPC value keywords.
Considering the keywords, the top niches are blogging, technology, capitals, stocks and health. One of the top keywords in a health blog is dental care. So if your dental care keyword gets optimized then you are bound to get a high CPM/CPC rate and hence generate revenue from your blog.
It is of utmost importance to have a domain name which is simple to read and easy to memorize. Also the domain name should be in sync with your blog niche. It is not that you have a blogging niche and have a domain name related to education or perhaps any other niche. (Laugh out loud). Your domain name can be a combination of 2-3 words.
For example – TopEduNews is a combination of three words all of which are making sense and has good domain authority making it a perfect domain name.
One Time Installments
Install WordPress, user friendly theme, WordPress SEO by Yoast, social bookmarking share buttons, Google Analytics and register on directories.
Now I have provided you all the ingredients to start generating revenue from your blog. Now all you need to do is to ponder on each of my points and go in depth to understand each of them. Well if I start elaborating on each of my points then this post will never end.
I want you to ask me questions in the form of comments in case you have any doubts and would love to clarify each of you personally through the comment section. But it is of utmost importance to understand the very fact that Success in blogging cannot be achieved overnight. After doing quality work for 2-3 months, you can expect some results. But the real earning will start when your domain age would be 6 months.
All The Best !!
