Blogger? Are you blogging?
Traffic is everything for a blogger!
He there bloggers or upcoming bloggers. Are you ready to make money blogging, to have a passive income? To be boss free? To travel around around the world and make money? To do whatever you want? To be an internet millionaire? Wait a minute..it won’t be that easy, but you never know what the internet can bring you.
Want to become a successful blogger? Then you have to know that traffic is everything. You can write and write, but if you have no traffic aka visitors it has no point. It will be just a hobby and you will write for just a few visitors like your family and friends. Of course blogging as a hobby can be nice, but if you want more you need to DO more for it. You need marketing and promotion and then you can sign up for a premium advertising network like Mediavine or Adthrive. Make more with advertising then with Google Adsense. Google Adsense is nothing. I have no good experience with it. The money was so less. Also Ezoic is not really doing the work..
So what do you need to do to get this traffic?
(1 million unique visitors a month?Wow thats really a blog in blogging world, but its all possible).
1.Focus on keywords
You need to do keyword research. You have many tools for this for example semrush.com. It does cost some money. You can do this yourself or let someone help you with it. Check your competitors on www.similarweb.com and check their best ranking keywords. Te best is to go for low competition keywords and high search volume. So for example: famous female bloggers is searched for 50k times a month with low competition. So this is a good keyword. In the beginning we just searched for popular topics, now we focus more on good low competition keywords.
I know these are hard to find these days because they are enough smart bloggers out there that already found them, but keep on trying and of course you can go for higher competition and still rock it with good SEO.
2. Hire a marketing agency
You need marketing also known as SEO. SEO is everything you need to do to make sure your website and content/articles rank in Google. Google traffic or search engine is everything when you are not Insta or social media famous. Most visitors come through Google and search engines like Yahoo and Bing. You can hire an expensive marketing agency for this, but on Fiverr you can find someone to. Although I do have to tell you there are a lot of scams and bad SEO experts on Fiverr. You really have to look good and read some reviews. Everyone pretends to be an expert nowadays. But who really is?
3.Write good content or hire someone
Same as for the marketing. You can do it yourself, but sometimes its better to hire someone for the writing. We are actually Dutch and our writing is not the best in English. We try to write ourself, but we also have a copywriter. Write engaging and informing quality content. Of course some shorter articles can be good to. It is all about the quality. Write for Google, but also for your readers. Give them something extra and give them away information for free to. Ofcourse it can help to take a good course like this SEO course that will teach you everything, but sometimes with reading you can come far to. Researching, Googling and reading. You have to know who to follow, which blogs are worth reading and keeping up with.
We suggest you to read our other articles about blogging if you want to become a successful blogger in a few years. Of course we like to keep it real. Success takes time and most people will know this. So be patient and work hard.
10.000 a month in passive income with blogging? Possible! Keep working for it and invest some money in it. Blogging is all about investing in marketing and patience. So don’t think you will be successful in just 2 years. No take your time and think about 10 years.
Don’t expect too much the first months/years, but think in the long term.
