Blogging your way to riches and fame won’t happen in an instant. Because it requires the most important ingredient of success and it is called time. It’s time for me to take you all the way to blogging wealth and fame. Along with compelling unique content and direction without which there can be no success. Blogging your way to wealth and fame starts with your profitable niche. And then the target keywords related to that niche.
This is the most important part of blogging, which is why it is also known as the address. Without direction you will receive visitors who are not even remotely interested in your content. And that will skyrocket your blog’s bounce rate. Which is an indication to search engines that the public is not enjoying your blog.
What is your profitable niche?
Your profitable niche is the secret when blogging your way to riches and fame. It’s what you like to do the most. If you love that activity enough, then you will also have quite a bit of knowledge on the subject. This is why many hobbies have become surprisingly profitable. Online success is only imminent when you love what you do. Because when you really love what you do, then it will be impossible to give up.
What are target keywords?
Target keywords are the individual words that best describe your profitable niche. And with Google Keyword Planner you should look for keywords with high search volume and low competition. Choose the keyword with the highest search volume and the lowest competition. Then make that keyword the first word of your blog title. Also try to include that most important keyword within your blog’s domain name.
Blog domain and title?
With the target keyword research mentioned above and your profitable niche. Choose a domain that is not too long and is also easy to remember. How should the title of your blog be? However, the title should demonstrate direct relevance to the topic of your blog. The title of the blog must not exceed 60 characters and it also counts the spaces.
Where should I place the Target Keywords?
Your main target keyword must be present in your blog domain. And also as the first word of the blog title. But that is only the main keyword you want your blog to rank for. You must have multiple target keywords. You can put more than one target keyword in the blog title, as long as it’s in context. Your blog title is also known as the h1 header.
And like a chain reaction, the blog title should be the first few words that start the blog meta description. See how that main target keyword remains constant, like the first word? But why is that?
Because that’s how you tell search engine spiders or crawlers exactly what your blog is about. And by doing so, you simplify the technicalities of indexing and ultimately increase the ranking ability of the blog.
There is also the h2 header or otherwise known as the blog post title. Therefore, the keywords you want to target should be present in the blog post title. But with the blog post you’ll also want to pay attention to things like writing. The presence of transition words and preferably the absence of writing in the passive voice.
Also, there are alternate image tags like with featured images. And these alt tags should also contain the keywords. This way even images of your features can be indexed and serve as an internal link. Professional SEO requires a lot of attention. This is why most of the professional blogging rock stars (so to speak) use the Yoast SEO plugin (over 7 million users).
How many words should a blog post and page contain?
As long as the content is populated with the target keywords and search phrases. It is recommended that the content should not be less than 1,000 – 2,000 words. And this applies to both blog pages and posts.
But how often should you present so much compelling helpful content?
In my opinion. Take your time and work on a post or page so engaging and useful that it cannot be ignored. At least one high-quality featured post per month. This will require a lot of research because compelling content is something that cannot be found anywhere else online. Offer a proven solution to a common need identified within your niche. And do this with every post and page. Because that’s how they recognize you as a professional.
But how will I actually make money?
Easy. With a high-quality blog, you will receive a large number of targeted visitors and also get subscribers for your email list. Having your own blog and email list is where you promote affiliate products. This is easily achieved by creating a free affiliate membership with ClickBank. Which is one of the largest online digital sales platform with over 300k products to choose from.
But affiliate marketing and ClickBank is a complete discussion on its own. And quite a wide discussion because there is a lot of confusion in this method. Always remember, there is no such thing as instant fame and fortune. Success requires hard work, be it online or otherwise.
