Link Building Made Real Simple: Build Links Naturally

I won’t reveal you a big secret by saying that Google, as well as other major search engines, review links as one of the primary factors for ranking web pages. This means only one thing for you: if you want to rank high in search, you have to build links. I’m sure you have already studied a lot of information about link building. Some of it was useful, some of it was not.

This article is aimed at telling you how to build links the right way. This brief guide suits users with basic link building knowledge or even without it at all. It covers the best tried and tested methods you will be able to apply straight away.

Let’s start with the definition.

What is link building?

It’s simple. Marketers call the process of acquiring backlinks from external sites link building.
You should understand the goal of link building campaigns as well. They are aimed at increasing search traffic coming from Google and popular sites.

The research done by Ahrefs has found that the number of inbound links to a website has a high correlation with Google rankings.

Take a look at the chart below. It has been taken from the study of over 2 million keywords. It proves that link signals have a much higher correlation score than individual on-page factors like meta tags, keywords, etc.

Actionable link building strategies

Now we are going to recap major link building strategies one-by-one. Each tactic comes with a short description so that you clearly understood how to apply it in practice.

Well, let’s start with the most popular and efficient tactic according to our survey.

1. Super awesome content

Super awesome content: Actionable link building strategies: eAskme

The content we are talking about is called link bait. It can take many forms, but in simple words, link bait refers to any piece of content that attracts links naturally, by saying ‘naturally’ we mean because of its high value or unique proposition.

Such kind of links is considered ‘earned’ rather than ‘built’. By the way, even link bait content requires promotion.

The content value could come from the following:
  • All-embracing research
  • Unique data
  • A survey
  • Attractive/unique graphics
  • A free tool
Link bait is an excellent example of white hat link building, the purest form of it. This is a kind of return to the way Google originally meant links would push the best content to the top.

What do you need to apply this technique? Even after reading the definition you understand that high-quality resource is required as ‘bait’. You need an engaging piece of content that will be widely shared and rank high in search.

Side projects/free tools would also fall under the link bait category. These side projects would generally be separate from your main product or service but related to it. They should provide value on their own.

2. Feature influencers

Do you hesitate whether you should contact an influencer or not? Don’t be scared away by the status even if you are just a startupper. Your niche celebs are just marketing pros. Their hearts melt when you feature, quote or mention them.

The tactic is called ego-bait. It is pretty efficient and includes:
  • An interview with an influencer on your site
  • An expert roundup that includes an influencer in an expert roundup
  • Quote an influencer in your content or link to their site
  • Include an influencer in a top 10 list
You’ll see that most of the influencers will at least share content proving once again that they are field experts. This will amplify the content reach and potentially lead to links.

3. Using broken links

Using broken links: Actionable link building strategies: eAskme.com

You have surely noticed that some resources you found useful previously, disappear from the web. Why does it happen? The company behind the site may go out of business or perhaps the site is no longer actively maintained.

This can be an opportunity for the link builder.

Here’s what you can do. Create a similar resource on your own site and reach out to sites with broken links. Offer them your content as a good alternative. Webmasters are usually eager to fix errors on their sites, so you are likely to succeed.

4. Reclamation of links

Link reclamation includes:

  • Fixing of the broken links that point to your site along with fixing broken internal links
  • Finding and searching for unlinked brand mentions
Identifying the uncredited use of copyrighted material. It may be proprietary images or videos
Now let’s talk about each of the above points:

1. Fixing broken links that point to your site

Are there any broken links pointing to 404 pages on your site? You need to fix it as you are losing valuable link juice.

Here’s how we, at Ahrefs cope with the issue. We need Ahrefs and a free WordPress Redirection plugin for the purpose.
At first, we run the Broken Link Checker report in Ahrefs Site Explorer in order to get a list of all broken backlinks.

When we have the list, we create a 301 redirect for each broken link with the help of “Redirection” plugin

2. Unlinked brand mentions

Some websites mention but don’t include a link back to your site. In this case, you can reach out to the site, thank them for the mention, and ask them to add a link. That’s it.

3. Fighting the uncredited use of copyrighted material

If someone uses your copyrighted material it may be a photo, for example, on their site you can either ask them to remove it or take this as one more link building opportunity.  Send the site owner/webmaster/site editor an email to inform them of the violation and asking for accreditation. This should be enough to solve the issue and pick up a link.

By the way, you can use Google’s reverse image search to look for sites that are using your copyrighted images.

5. Get into the news stream

This technique refers to managing to get into the slipstream of the hot trending news and mentioning your brand or ideas in the story somehow.

It can be a really effective way of collecting high-quality links from big publications.

However, time is everything in newsjacking. When something newsworthy happens journalists are taking pains to cover each and every angle and pick out experts’ quotes that may add insights to the event. But you have to be really fast here as nobody is interested in the outdated info.

6. Writing guest posts

Writing guest posts: Actionable link building strategies: eAskme.com

Guest blogging is an effective way to expose your website/brand to the new audiences and build authority boosting links.

I am sure you understand that I’m talking about top quality guest posts that stay a great method of acquiring white hat links. By the way, low quality guest-blogging has been crushed by Google and is not effective as it used to be before.

Good news is that there are tier 1 blogs in most niches that accept guest posts.

7. Interviews

Interviews: Actionable link building strategies: eAskme.com

Should admit that multiple aspects of modern link building cross over the traditional PR. Building links by posting interviews with niche experts falls under this category.

You can use one of the following interview forms:

  • Blog interviews
  • Participating in ’expert roundup’ posts
  • Podcasts
  • Webinars
However, in all cases the goal is going to be the same: grow your profile in your niche and pick up some quality links at the same time. These links belong to the traffic driving ones, so they are also the white hat tactic.

8. Create infographics

Create infographics: Actionable link building strategies: eAskme.com

Creating infographics is not a new tactic but today it’s back again after a few years of being out of fashion.

There is a good reason why infographics remain a particularly effective way to power up the return for your outreach efforts.

It’s natural that outreach is always more effective when you offer something valuable for the host site. A high-quality infographic with a customized introduction is one of the types of such value exchange. A great deal: the host site gets your amazing content — you get a deserved backlink.
9. Syndication of content

I don’t recommend you syndicate content everywhere but doing this to quality sites with link attribution can lead to traffic increase and rankings boost.

What do I mean by saying “quality sites”? The ones  like:
  • Medium
  • Linkedin Pulse
  • Business 2 Community
  • Examiner
Write a custom title and introduction for each platform to pull the most out of your syndication.

10. Repurposing of content

What do you need to repurpose content for? First of all, you can obtain more value out of your content, secondly, you can acquire high-quality links.

What can you repurpose a blog post into?
  • A video
  • An infographic
  • An eBook
  • A slideshare presentation
Note that each piece of the repurposed content can be shared on relevant channels many of which offer the opportunity for a backlink.

As far as you understand, each of the content format and platform has a different potential audience.
Just like in the case with all the rest link building it should not be abused. Besides, any repurposed content should be of high quality and be capable to stand alone.

11. Building links with images

Building links with images: Actionable link building strategies: eAskme.com

There is a number of ways to leverage custom images and gain backlinks to your site.

Here are some of them:
  • Creating charts to visualize data
  • Creating memes specific to your niche
  • Creating images with quotes from famous bloggers or celebrities in your niche
  • Creating pinnable images for your blog posts
  • Providing stock images for use with attribution
You can add ‘swipeable’ images to your blog posts charts and graphs and encourage readers to download and share them on their own sites. This is a pretty efficient way to pick up links.

12. Directory submissions

Mass directory submissions are not practiced anymore, but there still may be some SEO value in acquiring links from quality or narrow-niche directories.

You need to determine directory’s strength. Some marketers use PageRank metric for that, but it is not updated frequently and easy to manipulate, so I would advise considering the following points instead.

Ensure that all links added to the directory go through a human review before they go live.

The directory must include quality sites and there should be no obvious manipulated anchor text links from the directory pages.

Check out the directory age using archive.org to make sure that it has been around for some time in the form it exists at the moment.

The directory’s backlink profile must be relatively clean and not to build spammy links.

Use this command cache:thedirectory.com/theurl to make sure that the link you are going to place would be cached by Google.

In any case, directory submissions should be only a small part of your overall link building strategy or you may not use them at all.

13. Press release distribution

Press release distribution: Actionable link building strategies: eAskme.com

Similar to mass directory submissions, mass press release distribution offers little benefit and may be a sign of manipulative link building.

However, if your goal is to attract press, it is a legitimate PR tactic which equals to a legitimate link building tactic.

Do you have anything really newsworthy (for instance a project/website launch)? Choose the channel to distribute your press release and make sure that it is of high quality and written in the third party.
This will increase your chances of being noticed and acquire more links.

Keep in mind that branded links are recommended for press releases. They are not the place to build your anchor text links.

14. Build local citations

Building citations on local business directories/portals still stays an effective tactic for improving local SEO.

Business directories have high acceptance standards in comparison to general web directories and will include only legitimate businesses into the list. Thanks to the fact they are likely to be reasonably well trusted by Google.

Llink building strategies for local business

BTW, not every business directory will include a link back to your site but many SEO professionals believe that even a mention from a trusted resource may be considered an ‘inferred link’ by Google and contribute into higher rankings.

15. Commenting on blogs

This is one of the easiest ways to get backlinks to both new and old websites. Effective blog commenting strategy is able to keep your backlink graph constant or raising with time.

Google likes when people actively participate in their niches and comment on blogs, so show that you are an engaged community member.

You can also build friendly relationships with other bloggers by means of commenting. This will help you with outreach campaigns as it is much easier to contact somebody you know.

Remember, mass commenting will not work. Your comments must be insightful, the blogs must be decent as only such kind of commenting may help with your rankings.

300+ High PR Dofollow Blog Comment Sites list 2018 & Free Backlinks

Quality comments, which contribute to the blog post content and show your expertise can drive traffic to your own site and help to grow your audience. This may be called an indirect ranking factor.

16. Contribute to niche forums

SEOs know where to go for their audience. They find the places where their potential customers like to hang out.

When you are an active forum participant, it’s not an isfsue for you to drop an occasional link back to your site if its relevant to the context, adds value, or answers a question.

Such kind of links is good for traffic and conversions. Participate in forums and show your expertise. This is how you build trust in the community. Then anyone who enters your site is already semi-qualified.

17. Participate in niche community sites

Are you signed up for Reddit? Then you surely know that there is a subreddit for pretty much everything, from web development to handicrafts.

What you need to do is detect subreddits that are related to your niche, participate, and occasionally share truly interesting and relevant content from your own site. This is quite a legitimate way to build links that drive traffic.

Did you know that once submissions achieve a certain number of upvotes, which varies from subreddit to subreddit, they become dofollow? Sure enough, this increases their SEO value.

Besides, a popular Reddit submission may bring you additional editorial links because many curation sites use Reddit as the source of their content.

Reddit is not the only one industry-specific community site. There are many others out there, like inbound.org targeted on marketers, for example. Just like I have already told you above, active participation gives opportunities both for building links and relationships.

18. Answer questions on sites like Quora, Yahoo, and similar

Links from question and answer style sites like Quora and Yahoo Answers are a great way to drive traffic to your site and build your authority in a niche.

You can also see which topics are trending in your niche.

Sites to Create Free Blog for Backlinks

Some questions are being asked every now and again. This happens because people posting them failed to find an in-depth answer in Google. This is your chance! Create content on your site that fills the information gap. It will present you an opportunity for bringing in search traffic and building links.

19. Sponsor charity organizations and events

Charity organizations often list their sponsors and link back to their sites. They are trusted by people and have high domain authority as a rule, which may be beneficial for rankings.

You are right, strictly speaking, these are paid links, but you don’t risk much getting them.

You can also exchange your services for a mention on the charity site. For example, if you are a web designer, you could offer to create a banner or whatever you would like to create for free provided that the charity organization includes some info with attribution on their site.

Your turn

That’s it for now. Of course, there is so much to be added to this brief link building guide, but now you know where to start. So, what do you think about the material? What strategies would work best for you and why do you think so? Do you think major link building tactics are going to change in the future? Any questions on the topic?

Please leave everything that is on your mind in the comments.

I wish you best of luck with your link building!

20 Killer Ways to Get more YouTube Subscribers in 2018

I encounter many people every day claiming that this year they will create a YouTube channel, but in the end they do nothing.

There are many who create channels but not able to make money with YouTube.

You need to revamp YouTube channel and these killer ways will help you get more Youtube subscribers in 2018.

What I am going to share is something that always worked for YouTube masters and what work for them will surely work for you also.

Create a Script or Plan for your videos:


Planning is the very first thing to do even before you launch something. You should plan carefully what you are going to feature or share on your YouTube channel.

After that, plan the structure of your YouTube videos.

Running a YouTube channel is similar to running a blog. You need a niche, and you need to create video content. The best is when you create YouTube channel with interest.

Have you ever watched a movie?

What a silly question!

You know that movies based on some scripts.

Why they need scripts?

Because, scripts help them perform better and stop stammering when talking.

Same way script for YouTube videos helps you to organize YouTube videos smoothly. Scripts also help you to stay on track when creating a video. Script also makes it easy for you to create a flow in your video and generate focused video for YouTube.

When creating video script, you need following things;
  • Words you will say in the video
  • Actions you will be covering in your video.
  • Main points where you need to put stress.
  • Use the language according to your target audience.
  • Call to action, such as (click on the link below or subscribe my YouTube channel or view next video etc.)
When writing script for the video, focus on your target audience. Make the script easy to understand even for a layman.

Before creating a script ask following questions to yourself;
  • Is your audience technically savvy? 
  • Are they from English speaking countries or not? 
  • Are they smart or layman? 
  • Do they like the informative or funny content?

Produce engaging, evergreen and viral video content:

Produce engaging, evergreen and viral video content: eAskme

You want to create a video that go viral, and then you need to focus on building highly engaging, entertaining and informative content. You cannot afford to lose control in the middle of the material as it will cost you severely.

You should put complete focus on making the whole video entertaining and flowing in the right way.

There are tons of videos available on every niche. Why should people watch your videos and subscribe your channel?

You need to give your readers something extra. Your job is to make video content not just engaging and informative but entertaining. The more engaging content you create the more users engage with your channel.

You must keep the balance between fun and educational content. This tip always works with content marketing.

What I recommend to you is that you should create evergreen videos that burst like anything. If you only focus on burst videos, then you will get unlimited hits but for a short period.

Evergreen videos will work for a long time. You will also get archived views. These type of videos stay relevant for long enough.

It is easy to hit the publish button. But your job is to make sure that the whole content is highly engaging, entertaining and add value to the audience experience.

Increase Uploading Frequency:

Increase Uploading Frequency: eAskme

You should increase creating and uploading frequency of your videos.

I know it is not easy but this is the key to attract more views and keep the visitors on your channel for longer time.

People love to subscribe channels with a lot of content. People only subscribe to your channel if they find ample amount of engaging videos. Subscribers want more videos from you.

If you do not create content regularly, then they will move to other channels.

There are already many channels similar to your channel. If you do not produce content regularly, then you cannot make them love your channels, and they will fall for others.

It is your job to offer more and more entertaining content regularly to make people visit your channel again and again.

Only a consistent YouTuber can build evergreen relationship with his subscribers.

If your competitors are publishing one video every week then you should be publishing more videos every week.

Always work according to the schedule. This helps your audience know when you will upload new videos. If you go against the schedule, then you will lose a lot of views. Your consistency will help you here.

Optimize your video titles:


20 Killer ways to Get More YouTube Subscribers in 2018: eAskme

Making your title clear enough to be recognized or identified is an essential method for YouTube success.

In YouTube, descriptive titles work better. Make it clear that what the video is all about.

Engaging Title:

The easiest way to make more people click on your videos is by making title quirky. The more traffic your video will generate the higher it will rank in YouTube search.

Never use “Video” in the title:
Using video in the title will not help in ranking better in YouTube search results. Everyone knows that the content on YouTube is a video. So do not waste the space.

Writing optimized, catchy and relevant titles will help you.

Online Business: What You Call Hell, I Call Home

Online Business or Blogging is the hell, But I call it home. You should quit blogging and join an office. Whole online business is the hell. Online businesses are full of fraud. You cannot make money as a blogger. You cannot rely full time on an online business.

You may be thinking that why I am saying this.

I am a professional blogger. I am earning not just money but name and fame as well.

Whatever I shared at the beginning of this post, are not my words.

Online Business Blogging: What you call Hell, I call home: eAskme
Online Business Blogging: What you call Hell, I call home: eAskme

Other people are reading: Blogging is my life, Adsense was my Girlfriend, Affiliate Marketing is my Wife

These are few sentences that I hear every day.

Why?

The answer is simple, most of the population in this world afraid of running an online business.

Why is that?

The human mind is filled with tons of doubts when it comes to start an online business or invest money in anything.

People love to spend whole life working in shifts under a boss rather than taking the bold step to run an online business or become an entrepreneur.

That is why 99% people in this world are employees.

Why blogging or any online business is hell?

The main reason why people think online business is a shady business is that they had the unfortunate experience.

Type of people who believe that online business is hell?

I believe that there are three types of people who say that online the business is hell.
  1. who had the bad experience
  2. who believe in rumors
  3. who make excuses
1)    Tons of fake websites promise to make you productive or help you earn piles of money in one day. But in reality, you gain nothing.

I remember the days when people were running after survey websites.

Few people complained that there are websites which are not paying when they met the threshold earning limit. Some of the sites have even blocked the earners. This hurts the reputation of the online business.

2)    The second type of people is those who have never tried any online business but follow the rumors or word of mouth advice.

Word of mouth works multiple times faster to spread negativity.

I meet these types of people daily who say that they want to make money, but when I tell them, they can make money online. They put a lock in their ears.

3)    The easiest way to escape from the efforts is by making an excuse.

Have you seen the kids in school, who do not prepare for the test and the final day they try to escape by being sick or pretending to be sick?

Same happens with mature people. 90% of the people who say that online business is a shady business make excuses.

Real life experience:

I like to share my real life experience with you.

Blogging: What you call Hell, I call home

3 Years ago, A student came to me saying that he wants to learn to blog and want to make money online. I told him that I could help him, but it will cost $300 because I have to invest my time.
And, you know what happened.

The guy said he is poor; he cannot afford even $100.

Do you think the guy was inferior?

NO.

Do you think he came by local transport or by foot?

No

He came in SUV which costs almost $14000. His friend told me that his pocket money was $500.
This incident made me realize that people want to spend money on everything except where they can learn something.

Now that guy is looking for a job.

Now I like to share one more experience.

Blogging: What you call Hell, I call home

These were one other guy who came to me to start a blog. He just paid me to launch a blog and went back. After one month he called me saying that he got approval from Adsense and his earnings reached $10.

In next month, his earnings reached $70, but he called me that he is moving to the USA and want to quit blogging.

I was surprised. I told the guy that he could continue his blogging business even in the USA. But he said that he is getting a job at the hotel as a waiter. He does not want to write anymore.
So you see this guy quit blogging just to become a waiter.

Do you want to make money online or with blogging?

I am sharing these experiences to help you understand what type of guy you are?

Who’s fault?

According to me, the fault is of those who fall for fake promises and even of those who never tried anything.

Why?

Do you know that more than 70% newbies quit blogging or any other online business within the first six months?

Why?

Because they are impatient. People want instant results, and that is the reason why they fail in online business.

The big reason why people fall in hand of fraud sites is that fake sites promise you that you will earn $10 by sending the email or make $100 in one day doing nothing or autopilot systems where they need not work.

In reality, no system can make money for you without any effort.

Why is online blogging business home for me?


Why is online blogging business home for me

From my first day as a newbie blogger, I understood the fact that it takes time to build a business.
Online business takes time, but people are impatient.

Do you know that more than 70% newbie bloggers quit blogging within the first six months?

Why?

Because they are impatient. People want instant results, and that is the reason why they fail in online business.

The big reason why people fall in hand of fraud sites is that fake sites promise you that you will earn $10 by sending the email or make $100 in one day doing nothing or autopilot systems where they need not work.

In reality, no system can make money for you without any effort.

Blogging has not just saved me from working under a boss but also helped me to build my community of professional friends.

Blogging has rewarded me with;

No, this same happens with all of the professional bloggers.

Those who understand blogging respect us.

Those who don’t understand blogging, think me like an alien who is making money online when there are working days and nights in offices.

Biggest fear:

I know the biggest concern that people have in their mind is the investment. This episode tells that you can start an online business with less than what you spend as pocket money.

I also like to be blunt here.

Do you think I make money without investing in my blogs? LOL!
Do you think Ryan travel the world with blogging, without spending a dime? Or
Do you think that John Chow, Patt Flynn, Donna Merrill, Janice Wald, Cori Ramos, Sue Dunlevie and many others are making money without making any efforts?

Takeaway:

What you should learn from what you call hell, I call home?

This episode of eAskme, help you find out that if you are meant to become a professional blogger, or you die working in an office for others.

If you still think that you are not brave enough to take your own decision, then you can never change your life for good.

Remember: Your life depends upon your actions.

Blogging is my life, Adsense was my Girlfriend, Affiliate Marketing is my Wife

Do you want to know the secret ingredient of my life? Here is the answer, Blogging is my life, Adsense was my girlfriend, and Affiliate marketing is my life. Now you may ask what, why and how?

Blogging:

This word has changed how humans are utilizing internet these days.

In the beginning, people were using blogs as an online journal or personal diary. They write everything that has happened in the current day and what they have to do in next day.

But with the time, Blogging has grown, and marketers found great potential in it. These days not just internet marketers but personal bloggers also taking birth as mushrooms. Blogging is a necessary part of digital marketing.

Blogging is my life, Why and How?

There was a time when I was working as millions of other people these days. Blogging has entitled me to so many benefits that I was not able to gain in any job, such as;
  1. Boss free life
  2. My own business
  3. Time freedom
  4. Location Freedom
  5. Financial freedom
There was a time when my life was running from home to office and office to the house. I was working for long hours and still have to listen to many things. Even when I was a top performer in office, it never helped me gain much. Blogging has helped me not only to be my boss and live a boss-free life.

For an ordinary person, it is not easy to start a business. Usually, the company needs a lot of investment and knowledge.

But blogging has helped me to establish my own blogging business. With just little investment of around 100 dollars, a person can start blogging.

Complete freedom:

If you work in an office or even in a business, you can never feel complete freedom as you have to work every day to earn. But in blogging, you can make money while sleeping.

Blogging has helped to overcome the worries of money. It has made me earn the freedom to work from anywhere I want and whenever I want.

Now I make money blogging, even when I work 30 minutes.

Blogging has changed my identity. It has turned me from an employee to an entrepreneur. I have discovered the way to earn not just money but name and fame also.

Now you know me as a professional blogger.

I start my day with blogging and sleep after checking my blog status.

Adsense was my life, why and how?

We all work for money.

When a newbie thinks of monetizing his blog the very first thing he dreams about is getting Adsense approval.

Why?

Adsense is the best and high paying contextual ad network. It is the network that pays a blogger more than any system if utilized correctly.

Adsense has helped blogger who is making millions of dollars every month.

But, you can only make good money with Adsense when you have a tremendous amount of traffic with the people who click on your ads.

At the beginning of my blogging journey, I was genuinely in love with Google Adsense.

Google Adsense was the network that paid me the very first check of $553.

I have made almost 100k in 4 months with Adsense. I have made that much because the 90% of my site traffic was from the USA. But Adsense started paying less in Asian countries.

Every year bloggers are facing a decrease in Adsense earning even when the traffic is same.

Adsense was my most favorite girlfriend, but soon I realized that it is not enough for me.

In 2015, I broke up with Adsense on my main site.

I am still using Adsense on my other blogs, but definitely, I do not love it and cannot consider it my girlfriend.

Affiliate Marketing is my wife, How and Why?

At the beginning of 2014, I started discovering other ways to monetize my blogs.

I have checked many Adsense alternatives and even used Bing Ads.

One day I learned word affiliate marketing and started digging for more.

Soon I understood that Affiliate marketing is the only solution to my broken heart.

I have chased affiliate marketing on many sites and learned many things.

It was the time when I realized that I should approach Affiliate Marketing.

I joined Shareasale, Clickbank, and CJ.


Joined some affiliate programs and within three months my Affiliate earning has crossed my earning from Adsense.

I finally committed myself to Affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is like the right wife that stays with me even in the hard times. It works for me and cares about me even when I am sleeping.

It was affiliate marketing that makes me achieve financial freedom with the help of blogging.

Now I am a man of my own life.

I live as I want, work as much as I want, whenever I want and from wherever I want.

I am earning money, but now I am not chasing it because my life (Blogging) and my wife (affiliate marketing) bringing cash to me.


And not just the money but I have made some 100’s of quality friends such as Ryan Biddulph, Donna Merrill, Janice Wald, Cori Ramos and more.

What I am doing these days:

Now I am living my blogging life happily with my wife affiliate marketing in a way that most people just dream.

I now just teach people how to make their life better with the help or internet and how to make money online but also counting all the blessings that I am getting from my readers, fans, and followers.

I always loved the idea to become a mentor and blogging has helped me to become one. I am more than satisfied when I see that my efforts are assisting the millions to make their way in the online world and boost their career.

Thanks to all of you. Thanks to all who stand beside me. I also thank all those who have criticized me because you have helped me to understand what you needed from me.

This is for all:

Stay with me till the end of my life, because I count your blessing. I appreciate the time and words you share with me or my blogs.

If you connect with me, I will connect with you.

When starting a blog, use a host that has a history of providing quality webhosting services. For instance, GoDaddy offers great WordPress blog hosting.

Make your blog to look as you always fantasized about. You can play around with the themes, and plugins, and to get the blog you wanted all along.

7. Promote and post more content

Now promote your blog through social media and see your subscriber numbers, and income, grow.

Determining Your Hosting Needs

It is important to understand what your blog’s hosting needs are. For instance, some blogs will require lots of server space because they will include lots of images and videos. Other blogs might end up with lots of traffic. In such scenarios, ample space and bandwidth would be a necessity.

Additionally, you can determine what your responsibilities are as far as managing the blog goes. For instance, if you want someone else to handle the backups and maintenance, consider paying someone for it.

Other issues to consider when starting a blog include whether you need multiple domain names, technical support, hosting costs, and the like. One of the most popular hosts for bloggers is GoDaddy. Below we will see how to start a blog with GoDaddy.

3. Create/add a domain

Add a domain by choosing “No Thanks”. Otherwise, you can search for a new domain.

4. Choose plan length

Plan length is the amount of time you wish your webhosting plan to last for. It is a good idea to select  a web hosting plan for at least 12 months.

5. Adjust privacy settings
