5 Tips To Destroy Your Blogging Career


tips to destroy your blogging careerThis topic may sound weird but there are things which must be learnt for a more reliable and ever grooming blogging career. How does blogosphere treat newbies today? Some big names out there will never stop showing off their monthly income reports and revenue through blog advertisement and affiliate marketing. They often take you to a world which though seem real but is based on half told and exaggerated facts. Yes they are people with hot pockets and yes they are earning in thousands of dollars a month. But they will always hide the true working principles of Making Money through blogging. Their exaggerated stories often waste your precious time but in most cases there source of income is not solely dependent on what they share but there are things that they will never expose online. They will ask you to buy their Ebooks, they will brain wash you with their inspirational videos and luxury life but they will never share the fundamental aspect of Success and that is "Hard Work!"
make money story tellers
I personally don't follow these big names because I have wasted more than a year of my early blogging career. Most of the tips that they share took me away from reality and made me forget the blogging ethics and become a money monger. There are tons of videos and stories on AdSense but believe it or not, most People who are earning hell lot of money today are not individuals like me or you and not housewives but they are a company represented by one face. That one Display face takes all the credits and represents himself as a role model. In short they are spoiling blogging ethics and are responsible for thousands of newbie bloggers who end up their career in hopelessness because they get tired of hearing stories on stories but fail to acknowledge that those role models are a part of system which lets them get richer and richer by fooling new comers online. Today everyone is running after short cuts and producing content that aims only at driving traffic but serves no readership value. You wont see a subscription box and neither a comment option on many well established blogs because Readership for them matters less than spamming Google with fresh links containing republished ideas with no purpose to serve and deliver.
During the past few weeks I have received several emails from visitors who were really hopeless at their monthly income and wanted to know how exactly can they earn just like those story tellers. So I thought I better serve my duty as a Blogger and less like a Marketer sharing how much we earn online through MBT Network, I would rather prefer sharing what I have learned so far.
Following are few tips which if you follow will surely damage your goals online and will put an end on your blogging dream

1- Following The Story Tellers

dreaming-about-moneyTime equals money and if you are wasting that time reading success stories of web marketers online then you are surely moving more towards imagination and less towards practicality. No one can become rich or successful by living someone else's dream. They are earning today because they are in business for the past 5-10 years. Comparing your goals to them and dreaming of becoming a rich monster overnight is your first step towards failure. Blogging demands time and patience and revenue follows up only when you reach a stage that I am soon going to discuss.

2- Blogging Doesn't Stands For Adsense

Look around at people who have abandoned their blogging careers. Most of them are those who kept on reading AdSense stories and started depending solely on it as the only source of income. They are wrongly trained bloggers and when their Adsense accounts get ban they find themselves in confusion with no alternative in mind. All there life they blogged only to receive more and more traffic by publishing short, re-shared stories and paid less attention to readership which in fact is the real revenue.
They often change niche for the sake of better CPC (cost per click) and start running after ways to increase their earning. This leads them no where because change of niche destroys your search engine rankings as well as Email List. If you are writing on Blogger Widgets today and writing on "Web Hosting Deals" tomorrow then you are again being wrongly guided by those story tellers. You will never build authority this way. Your God gifted potentials are beyond your imagination so explore them because you deserve far good if you do justice with your time and strategies.
Its true that your Adsense revenue Boost when your traffic increase but instead of publishing republished and low quality content you can utilize the same energy in producing content that may attract readers. Every reader is worth $1 and you can realize it once you drive a fair amount of traffic no less than 2000 Visits/day.

3- Publishing Links To Google Brings More Traffic

Look around and you will find many blogs publishing 4-5 posts per day and most of these posts are stories already published on established Tech blogs. They will write on anything they find. This is one reason for Panda Effect which is a great step by Google to discourage misuse of blogging. Publishing content with no purpose in mind is post spamming.
Write less but write good and unique. It wont return a value today, tomorrow but it will one day. It works and it works well!

4- Preferring PageRank over Alexa

alexa-pagerank-seoPageRank is algorithm that tells you how well a site is recommended by others in terms of backlinks but to your amazement Google itself emphasizes the fact that PageRank is not important.
Alexa is an excellent way of differentiating quality websites from those which offer nothing new in terms of content. If you are wasting your time looking for more and more links and spending less time on your posting frequency then again you will end up in dismay. There are many blogs with PageRank>4 (Check Blogger Directory) but they fail to drive traffic both from search engines and social media. Neither do they earn from private advertisements nor from banner ads because a blog with PageRank6 and Alexa > 50k offers no credit value to the advertiser. Read my detailed post on Why Alexa Rank is better than PageRank?

5- Posting Less and Looking at Analytics Daily

checking statsIf there is anything that has helped me so far is consistent posting. It took me just three months to drop my Alexa from 60k to 11k and this was possible only because of producing tutorials at regular time period. I often post twice a day and when I feel less energetic I post once. But I maintain the sequence. If I am posting one today, 2 tomorrow then I will maintain this sequence of one and two. If you are writing consistently three posts daily then you may maintain writing three posts. Because spiders carefully record how you update your content and your update schedule sets a schedule for Search engine crawlers. If you posted continuously for one week and did nothing the next week then you surely piss and confuse search robots. When you post more, your Alexa improves and when you stop posting or post randomly in irregular way then your Alexa will rapidly shoot up (Loose rank)
Don't look at your analytics every single day. Don't sit and watch for traffic to come. Keep posting because you never know which post turns out to be a "Magic Post". Most traffic that big web owners receive is just due to two or three Magic posts that change their entire experience. MBT also enjoys such Magic posts without which I would have been begging for traffic.
When you check your analytics daily you often loose hope to do better. So instead of loosing the rhythm avoid checking your stats for a week and keep posting regularly. Once the week ends check your stats to see if your strategy worked or not. If you saw even a slightest improvement then celebrate that day but if you didn't saw a change then alternatively take motivation from the increase in the number of your followers and readers. Blog like this for at least three months and don't care about advertisements or Adsense during this period. By adopting this approach, You will indeed find yourself in a much better position. What you expected to achieve in a year will become your Goal for a single day. All this is possible if you work hard with dedication and apply all basic SEO tips side by side. Read people who may further improve your fundamentals and avoid reading every single tip that aim at blindly Making you rich overnight.
Patience and Hard work is the key to a successful living online and same goes for an established blogging career.

  3. Mohammad,

    Alexa is actually pretty useless and I'm surprised that you gave it a lot of praises. SEO experts knew about Alexa's uselessness years ago. Take a look at this post written by SEOBook for an example.

    @Homebiss

    As I said homebiss I never follow these story tellers. Whether it may be SEOmoz or SEOBook or any other SEO agency or internet Marketer they change there tones every other year. Alexa is my personal experience and has given me enough that I can't express it all even in a Ebook. Kindly read my post on how to get sponsors to get an idea. If you check BuySellAds you will find blogs with 10k visitors per day but there spots are empty because aDevrtisers need people with credit cards, tech loving people and Alexa is the only tool which tells them if a site offers all these things or not. Traffic matters less, Quality is first demanded. PAgeRank comes second to Alexa.

    Alexa is the only SEO tool that gives you correct idea of the keywords for which your competitor is going high and high. Its free analysis reports are close to accuracy and helps a lot in keeping an eye on every competitor.

    SEOmoz and SEObook often have their own tools and they need to market it. They need sales.


    @Bonzenti
    I would be more than glad if this post could help the least pal. Feels great you liked it.

  9. Mohammad,

    I can see that Alexa is one subject that we would never see eye to eye. That's okay. We can agree to disagree on this one.

    I myself had some personal experience with Alexa and I know the dirty tactics webmasters and bloggers normally use to bump up their Alexa rankings. In another word, Alexa can be gamed quite easily and gaming Alexa rankings is something common here in Asia. :)

    It is no longer a secret and this is why many advertisers have abandoned their dependence on Alexa and rely upon other internet ratings sites such as Comscore, Compete and Quantcast.

  15. It's a pity I am just discovering this site a bit late. I have been blogging for about 2 years now. I actually started to learn on my own and keep growing by making mistakes along the way and correcting them. Thanks for this great site that has in few months given me more than I could get in 2 years.

  16. @homebiss
    I would pardon not agree buddy on the statement that Alexa can be easily gamed using some tacttics. If this would have been the case then shoemoney and several other internet marketers like him would have been the first to reach 2k or 1k. They are still hanging on 11k or 10k because there is no way to buy an Alexa Rank.

    As far as compete is concerned it gives traffic idea from USA alone and when I check my statistics with its reports I often find it vague. It never gives a correct estimate idea as google trends does.


    @Darjeeling
    I would congratulate you with such a zeal. Keep it rolling!
    Well there is nothing we can do effectively against dozens of such content builders. The best way to get ahead of them is post frequency. Internet demands fresh and frequent updated topics. Write more on what is hot and write at least two posts per day. Traffic will be at your feets. :>


    @Admin

    Sure I will pal
