The Elements Of A Successful Blog
There are many elements involved with making any blog successful. First and foremost you have to have a website that can be easily navigated (you will find a great tool for this at the bottom of this post); if people can’t navigate your blog then they will click the back button and scroll down to the next blog until they find what they are looking for! You also want to make sure that you have no special characters in your URL as weird as it may sound. The reason being is because Google has crawlers that go out and look at everything from your URL to the content in your posts; they don’t always read special characters so if your blog is competing with several others it will have less chance of ranking. It is best to stay away from underscores, percentage signs, hashtag symbols and the like (dashes only). The only other thing to be aware of with your URL is to try to keep it under 100 characters long as this will help your SEO rank (search engine optimization).
Next it is necessary to make sure you keyword your blog. Use a tool such as Jaaxy or Google Keyword Planner to see what the best keyword phrases are for your particular topic. The formula to success is high search volume/low competition; you want to find a keyword phrase that gets searched often but does not have tons of sites competing to rank on Google for the particular keyword phrase. There are multiple areas that keywords will be inserted into your blog (mostly invisible to the person reading the blog). When you are creating your post your website builder will have a section to fill out that asks for keywords; put 65 to 75 characters-worth of keyword/keyword phrases. You want to put all the keywords in that you want to rank for in this spot. Any pictures/media you insert into your posts should be first saved to your computer as a keyword phrase. Lastly, you need to make a point to use your main keyword phrase in the title to your blog post as well as the SEO title.
Headline tags are another essential part in learning how to make a money blog. When you use headline tags you are inviting the Google Crawlers to check out your content which we have already established leads to ranking your website! You can look at many blogs and notice that many of them do not have any headline tags. There are specifically 6 types of headline tags going from H1 to H6 tags. They progressively get smaller and should be used at the start of paragraphs/subjects within your blog post! If you want to see an example of these tags being used simply scroll through this blog post and you will see them! It is important to try to make your headline tags use your keyword phrases.
The last couple elements of a successful blog are to make sure that you do not have duplicate content between pages or else Google will likely have a hard time distinguishing which page to rank! This is only going to happen if you literally post the exact same content on more than one page within your blog. One more suggestion is to always use Meta descriptions. These are descriptions that will show up on the search page and your potential blog readers will see this. Include your main keyword phrases in a 1 to 2 sentence description that does not exceed 160 characters (Google cuts it off after 160).
How To Make Money With A Blogging Site
By now you are probably saying to yourself, “okay, but how do I make a money blog?” Well now that you know the fundamental elements of what your blog needs to have, let’s talk about how to make money blogs for your passion. Once again, you can make money sharing information online. That is of course what blogging is! So do you have a skill ? Is there a specific subject you know alot about or something you are passionate about sharing? Let me tell you something, every single post you are seeing on this blog has created income for me. How? The formula is simple; provide value-based content that solves a problem, rank your blog for the content, and share it with others (likes/comments, pings, social media, etc). Blogging is a great part time gig that you can turn into a full time career if you wish! The opportunities are endless; direct your audience towards affiliate offers, write an E-book, make a class, sell a product or service, etc! I suggest writing down a list of things that you know how to do or know a lot about. Figure out what it is that you are passionate about because if you aren’t passionate about what it is that you are doing it will not last! If you want to make money blogging you want to blog about what it is that you are passionate about, what it is that motivates you to get up and write! When you are passionate about something it comes out in the way you talk, the way you write, the way you carry yourself, the way people see you, and of course in the way you blog!
