Listed Below are 5 common questions that many bloggers have, each one answered. We answer the 5 Questions: “Can I Make Money Blogging”, “How Many Times Should I Post A Week On My Blog”, “How To Get Famous Blogging”, “What Is SEO”, & “How Hard Is It To Gain SEO”
1. Can I Make Money Blogging
Yes, infact there a thousands, upon thousands of people who already blog full time. The problem is that most people who blog make less than $3 A day.
That’s why if you want to make the Same Big Payday that other Bloggers do (10, 20, or even $100,000 A Month!) You have to do a lot of Little things, and a lot of big things to get there.
Choosing An Ad network. Before we delve into this you need to learn two things: CPM, and CPC:
- CPM: This is how much you get paid for every thousand Ad Impressions you get on your site. Basically every time someone views an Ad on your site, that’s an Ad Impression.
- CPC: Cost-Per-Click is very explanatory by itself. It’s how much you get paid every time someone Clicks an Ad on your site.
Certain Ad networks focus on Certain things. Some Ad networks pay higher for CPM than CPC, while others pay only CPC. Here’s an example:
One Ad network may pay you a $0.25 CPM, but only a $0.10 CPC.
While another may pay you a $0.05 CPM, but a $1 CPC.
And then there’s those that don’t pay you any CPM, and only pay for CPC. Meaning that if no one clicks an Ad, you don’t get paid.
Niche. Your Niche is your blogs base topic. My blogs base topic is Blogging. While sites like Cracked base topic is Humor, and MSNBC’s base topic is News. Your site needs a niche to make good money, so be sure to choose one, and stick to it.
And the Niche matters too. Some Niches are very competitive, and people will pay more to get Ads on your site. While others are not, and may pay very little.
Here’s an Example:
I have 2 blogs: Brightleigh, & The H2DI Group (The One Your On Now). H2DI which focus’ on blogging Tips & Advice–A Small, somewhat uncompetitive Niche–brings me a $0.25-30 CPM, and a $0.50-2.00 CPC.
Brightleigh however focuses on Animals. A very competitive large space. Brightleigh makes Pennies.
Because the larger a Niche is the more competitive it is. If a Niche gets large enough Advertisers will always find some other website willing to accept less money, thereby undercutting you forcing you to accept/Charge less money of you want to make any at all.
Whereas my Niche–Blogging–Isnt very large. To be honest any blogger with 50 F*ckin’ Followers posts Blogging Advice. But their Blogs don’t focus on blogging, their blogs are a mess of a million different topics, and because they focus so much on so many different topics they don’t have a Set Niche.
There are few Blogs/Sites that focus strictly on Blogging like I do now. So since the Niche is smaller, Advertisers have to pay more to get into my niche.
Views. Any blog, no matter the Niche, the CPM, or the CPC will be profitable with the right amount of views. Unfortunately that amount may be in the Millions if they don’t have a good Niche, and Ad Network, while it may be in the thousands with the right Niche/Ad Network.
And there are few blogs that receive millions of views a month. Remember: Blogs aren’t like YouTube videos. Views are harder to get, and worth more on Blogs.
With 100,000 Views a month your blog could make you $10,000 A month if you have a good Niche, and Ad Network. Or it could make you $500.
2. How Many Times Should I Posts A Week On My Blog
This is an incredibly common question. I myself once asked Google “How many times should I post a week on my blog”. The answer I got? Several!
Truth be told everyone will tell you something different. Some say once a day, some say twice a day, others say 3-5 times a week, whilst a smaller portion tell you at least once a week.
But I believe that you should post equally in quantity to your quality. If your average post is 5,000 words, and contains 3-5 keywords than twice a week would be perfect. If your average post is 500 words with 0-1 keywords than 1-3 times a day would be great. Just follow rules simular to this.
Essentially if you want to Publish large informational articles like Neil Patel than you only need to post a few times a week, and over time you will acquire more, and more keywords helping you grow your Views.
But if you want to post shorter Buzzfeed-Like articles then you may have to post more often, because you won’t be growing your Keywords as much as you would with 2,000-3,000 Word Articles. No, in this case you’d be receiving your traffic from the Blogosphere, and Subs/Followers.
3. How To Get Famous Blogging
Well it’s a gamble. Some bloggers post 5 times a day, make millions, and have millions of people reading their blog. Then you see that they only have 10,000 Twitter Followers.
People don’t really get famous Blogging, to be Perfectly honest. Seriously. Thousands of bloggers are currently making 6 figures a year, and have major websites but you’ve probably never heard the founder/Editor-in-chief’s name.
Here’s 5 Steps To Get Famous Blogging:
1. Write Good Content: Bad Bloggers Won’t Get Far
2. Post Daily: The Most Famous Bloggers Are Lifestyle Bloggers, And Post Daily
3. Choose The Right Niche: As I Said Lifestyle Bloggers are really likely to get famous. So are: Fashion Bloggers, Pop-Culture Bloggers, and Controversial Bloggers
4. Create A Lovable Personality: When You Write Make Your Personality Seem Warm, and Fuzzy
5. Exposure, Exposure, Exposure: The reason other types of bloggers don’t get famous is exposure. Let the world know it is you!

5. How Hard Is It To Gain Keywords
How hard is it to gain keywords… a really good question I asked for you. Well it depends on your site, your competitors sites, and the keywords your going for.
If your site has tons of Backlinks, great SEO, amazing page Authority, and alread ranks for some keywords than it is a little bit easier for you to gain them.
And it really helps if your only competitors are other small-time blogs/bloggers. Especially if your blog has a higer domain Authority.
Then the last factor is: what the heck is the keyword. Certain Keywords are harder to rank for, while some are easy. Like a Keyword related to Marketing? Hard. What about a Keyword related to grooming a hedgehog? Not Hard. Because it depends on how many search for a keyword, so the most unpopular ones are easier to rank for.
