Here’s a step by step guide to establish a successful blog
Choose a Niche-
First of all, you have to make up your mind about choosing a particular niche to blog about. Don’t try to be a jack of all trades but master of none. This step can be a bit tricky as when you start your blogging career you find a lot of appealing topics that makes you want to write about them. But only after you spend a lot of time writing blogs in different niches, you realize you may want to develop your expertise in a particular niche. People always tends to look out for an expert’s opinion on a topic.
Do Keyword Research-
Keyword research is a very important step as it plays a huge role in ranking your blog in Google search results. But first of all, it is very important for you to understand what keyword really is. Keyword is simply what people search for in Google or any other search engine’s search bar to find something. Your website is worthless if it not visited by people to read the valuable content in it. So, all you need to do is to make a list of 100 keywords at least that can help you in ranking your site and bringing more traffic in.
Register a Domain Name-
Buying a domain name is the next big and important step one has to take in order to establish a website. Domain name is basically the name that will redirect people to your site (like google.com for Google and facebook.com for Facebook). It is suggested to go for only .com domains as they make your site look more real and authentic. Try to choose a domain name that is further very brandable.
After you bought you domain and created a website, you need a service provider’s help to make it all go online for people to read. There are a lot of options out there for web hosting services, but we suggest you to go for shared server service initially. When you buy the service, you will be asked for enrolling for a paid service, which you can choose according to your budget and lastly, they will ask you to install WordPress. You need to work a lot around WordPress, so do the hard work and cherish the results.
By now, you must have created your blog successfully.
