Steps to follow to earn from blogging within one year

One year is a very short period of time. So it is not easy to earn from a blog within this short time. Also, in 2020 lots of things have been changed. Things new bloggers followed in earlier of 2014 may not work in 2020.

Yes, it is hard, but not impossible. If you follow the steps I am going to tell you, then you will able to make revenue just within one year. So below are the given steps:

Setup on-page SEO

The first thing is first. Before you start writing content, setup the on-page SEO properly. You can use the Yoast SEO plugin if your blog is on WordPress. I always recommend using self-hosted WordPress to start your blog. If you want to start your blog on Blogger, then okay. But you will not able to use the plugins and extensions.

At the time of the setup process, disallow search engines to prevent your blog from indexing on Google and other popular search engines.

Choose a micro-niche

There was a time when you could write on everything on a single blog and Google still sent you lots of traffic. But today in 2020, Google prefers niche base sites. A niche refers to which topic your blog cover. For example, my blog is under blogging and making money online niche.

But if you want to make the profit from your one year blog, then only a niche base blog is not enough. There is another thing called micro-niche which will help you to earn within this short time. Microniche is the more specific and more narrowing of the topic of your website.

An example of the micro-niche topic can be hosting coupons where the blogger shares coupons available on various hosting providers. But if the blogger shares coupons of many other products along with hosting, then it will look like a niche based blog.

If you choose niche then it will be also good, but it will be harder to get that amount of traffic that can help you make sufficient revenue from your blog.

Focus on affiliate earning

If you have a particular niche or micro-niche and you are getting targetted traffic, then do affiliate marketing. From my blog, I have already earned affiliate income from CloudWays hosting affiliate.

Though AdSense is one of the easiest choices for new bloggers, but if you do affiliate marketing then you can earn even more than AdSense. You will surprise after you know that bloggers even earning a thousand times more than AdSense using the affiliate links from their blog.

Publish quality content

Content is king and Google loves those blogs that have great content. Always keep in mind that you have to publish helpful content that gives value to your readers.

If your audience likes your blog content then they spend more time on your blog and Google will take it as positive. In the future, Google will prefer to send traffic to your site.

Post regularly

Google loves those sites where articles posted regularly. To earn from your blog quickly, it is recommended to post three posts in a week. Google doesn’t prefer to send traffic to inactive websites. So always publish new and fresh content regularly. Thus you can quickly able to earn within one year.

 

So these are the most important steps to follow to start making money from your new blog.
