A guide for new bloggers to publish your website on search engines and drive insane amount of traffic instantly.
Since the time I started my blog in the last month I was just wondering when will I get the approval from Google Adsense and Ii will start monetizing my blog. To get the approval for my website I have put in a lot of hard work and some smart tactics which I figured after doing my research and it feels great to see all that hard work has paid off.
To be honest I am seeing the results and they are not that great I know I am getting a bit carried away obviously I did not expect that I would start making $10-$20 in the next 2 days after I received approval. I will admit that I am seeing the rise in the growth of the amount but it is not sufficient at all. But if not this then whats next? what is the next step after I have received the approval is a question that started striking to me.

So clearly the answer is that yes I have the approval from Google Adsense team and as flowery as it sounds its good but I am not gonna make any money until and unless I don't have people who would like to read my content; in short, We need traffic guys! Google Adsense pays you for the no. of ads you show to your audience and the amounts of clicks you get on those ads. Now the other question that will come to you is "Can you make at least some money with a moderate amount of traffic?" the answer to this question is yes. You can make money with a moderate amount of traffic.
There are a lot of bloggers who have a set/committed no. of TG who are the frequent visitors on their blogs and through these visitors those bloggers earn.
But I just do not want to limit it to that so I went back to do my R&D and communicated with few of the bloggers who write for the same niche as I do, and I got some good advice from them.
Advise No. 1 - The first thing is I should really appreciate the fact that I have received approval from Google Adsense in under a month's time I started my blog. Not all the people get it and there are many who don't get it even after they have worked really hard and have a huge no. of posts on their blogs.
Advise No. 2 - Focus on SEO. As my blog is new and though I have been infusing the keywords since the very 1st post on my blog I still need to work on the SEO part. This means honestly I have added a maximum of 3-4 keywords in all my posts and I focused less on the keywords which have low competition and more on the medium competition ones. But, going forward I will need to focus more on the keywords that have low competition as less focus on the ones which have medium competition. It was a great advice from one of the fellow bloggers that the keywords which tend to have low competition have a great advantage for the new blogs as the search volume for these keywords is low and not a lot of blogs do have these keywords infused so ultimately it will start ranking my blog on the search engine.
Advise No. 3 - Traffic is the key. As I mentioned earlier that Google is not going to pay you unless and until you don't have traffic that is looking at the ads or clicking on them and with traffic of say 100 - 200 visitors on the website on a daily basis there is a very rare possibility to it. So I need to increase the traffic on my website.
How do I do it? Well, there are a lot of ways through which you can drive a hell lot of traffic on your blog. By both free and paid marketing. Now we know what are the paid mediums. But let us see how to go about it. To start with creating your pages and accounts on all the social media platforms with your blog identity.
You can start a page like campaign on Facebook in order to gain the fan base. Or start a followers campaign for Twitter and Instagram. But the thing that I have noticed since I have started this research is if you want to make the most of your blog consider spending more money on the Pinterest paid campaigns rather than Twitter and Facebook. Of course, I am not saying that exhaust your entire budget on Pinterest but I would say spend 50% of your budget on Pinterest and remaining 50% on the other platforms. The reason being that considering a new blog, people on Facebook and Twitter are not that likely to read your long content as they are completely different platforms when it comes to engaging with people.
So rather than trying to go for Facebook marketing or Twitter marketing, Pinterest is a platform where people come to read content whether it be short or in detail. So I would suggest going with the paid campaigns for Pinterest. For the initial level, I would say just having a paid campaign from the social media platforms is good enough. Also, as I spoke with the bloggers, another thing to focus on is a social media marketing strategy. If you are looking for a paid tool here is a link for SEM Rush the best software for managing everything in one place.
Now coming to the free part. With the above platforms as well you can market your blog. For eg. After you post your new blog every time on your website, make it a practice to share it on all your social platforms by adding relevant tags and hashtags so it reaches the correct TG. When it comes to my account, for my Twitter, I always tag the brands about which I am talking on my blog about this way I get good exposure and at the same time the TG which I am targetting lands up on my page reducing the bounce rate of my website. Apart from the social media platforms, there is always a way to drop by directly in your readers inbox by email marketing with Mailchimp. there are 3 more websites I have recently started sharing my content on and they are absolutely free and have a good amount of daily traffic on their websites. I will keep on updating as and when I add more sites to my list.
1. Blogarama - Blogarama calls itself the oldest, the biggest and the no. 1 directory for free blogs. I have til now shared nearly 4 of my blogs on their website and I have a decent amount of traffic coming from them considering it has just been 3 days.
2. Medium - As I mentioned in one of my previous posts that Medium is a very good platform to earn money on a daily basis by just sharing your blogs on their website. In case you have skipped on that here is a link to the post. Well apart from being a very good earning source Medium is also a very good platform to get some free traffic on your website, all you need to do is sign up. In your dashboard, you will get an option to share your stories/import your stories. If you just want to write an earn you can directly submit the story to the Medium team once it is approved it will be published and the more reader read your story the more you earn. Similarly, it is for the Importing stories all you need is to copy the link of your blog from you want to import the data tweak it a bit and publish. Considering medium has a daily traffic of more than 5000 users there is a good chance your content is going to get some attention if it is good ;)
3. Camooni - I just stumbled upon this one day before yesterday when I was reading about free websites to share your blogs I immediately submitted my 3 posts on it and I must say it really works well. And it's way to easy to submit your blog links here unlike the others I mentioned above where you would need approval from their internal team, with Camooni, you can add the link and share it. Camooni has a daily visitors count of 700-800 people so you cannot expect much but still, I am happy with the amount of traffic getting driven by with just 3 posts.
I will be back with another article soon, if you want me to write about a particular topic do share the same with me on email@example.com
Till Then Keep Geeking ;)
