It’s been a month now since I started this blog, and I learned a lot throughout this time.
I’m writing this post to tell you guys that the only things you need to start blogging, is a willingness to work hard, and a lot of patience.
I made many mistakes when I started but eventually I figured things out.
The best thing I did before I started my blog was reading a very comprehensive SEO book, I had no idea what “SEO” meant before this. You can download this book from the GPI Facebook Group if you want to read it. And if you’re already there you can stop by the GPI Fanpage to say “Hello” to me, I would appreciate that.
Last week finally all my hard work paid off…I got Page Rank 1 on Google. I just wanted to tell you guys that I’m very excited about this thing. This is my first blogger achievement.
So what influenced the PR1 rank update for my blog? Well as most of you know Google’s major ranking factor is the number of backlinks your website has. I used this backlink building strategy which obviously paid off, and after that I moved to blog commenting which is a great way to bring traffic to your blog and make new friends. If you leave relevant and on topic comments people will look for your blog, search your profile on Facebook, on the blogger communities and connect with you. I made some great new friends in the blogosphere because of the comments I left on their blogs.
I also learned a lot about WordPress this month and found some great plugins to install on my blog. Among them is the free CommentLuv plugin which increased the comments on my blog posts, it’s a great way to give back to your readers.
So if you want to start a blog the time is now, don’t wait and let others take your great idea. If you are willing to work hard and be patient eventually it all pays off when you least expect it.
The Gain Profit Income Blog is hosted with Bluehost, and this is what I recommend to everyone. I’ve been taught that blogging means WordPress, and that is where Bluehost is the top choice for hosting.
Well that’s about it, I hope I haven’t bored you to death with my post, and if you took the time to read through the entire post I would be very thankful if you share it with your friends. Also I would like to know about your own blog’s changes due to the recent Google update, any PR changes, please use the comment box to tell me all about it.
