What is Blog and Blogging – A Complete Guide

To learn and understand blog and blogging, there are many good blogs are available on the internet, that have explained blogging in a very good way. By studying them well, any newbie blogger can understand the topic of blogging completely. And by adopting those basic blogging rules, you can create a great blog or website of your own. Which you can broadcast in the world of the Internet (Google) and present yourself as a good blogger.

In the beginning, blogging was written exclusively in the English language, because Google used to give preference to English language content only and it was necessary to have English content to get the blog monetized. Google Adsense approval was not available on blogs made in any other language.

But since the year 2016, when a lot of content was written on Google in Hindi and Hinglish and the number of visitors reading them also started increasing.

So then Google not only approved Adsense on Hindi and Hinglish language blogs, but along with it, today Google’s Ads have been approved on websites and blogs built on most of the regional languages ​​of the country.

That means your blog is completely ready for monetization in any language but your content should be in your own language and should be fresh in the terms of Google.

Today most of the good blogs are available in the English language only. Yet now slowly people are getting more inclination towards Hindi.

In simple language, blog is a “digital diary”, in which we write daily about the experiences and information received related to our life.

  2. Professional Blogging

What is Personal Blogging?

A person writes and shares his experiences and knowledge gained in his life by creating a blog on an online platform like a personal diary comes under Personal Blogging.

The purpose of a personal blogger is not to earn money from blogging, but to share the achievements, experiences and invaluable information received in his life in a mournful way.

What is Professional Blogging?

The main purpose of writing a blog through professional blogging is to earn money professionally.

Blogging is like a full time business for a professional blogger, in which a blogger can earn maximum money, which has no limit.

To earn money from a blog, we have to write posts about the most searched content on Google, so that more and more visitors i.e. traffic can come to our blog.

Traffic is the biggest source of earning money from blog. And traffic can come to a blog only when such content is written on it which is needed by the people and is being searched the most.

Some Essential Tips & Tricks to Become a Professional Blogger

Along with increasing your knowledge to become a great professional blogger, there are some ways by which even a simple blogger can do blogging professionally and earn money from his blog.

Be unique: By doing any work in a unique way i.e. in a different way, we get a different and good result.

On the other hand, if we talk about blogging, then this is an area where only Unique Concept works.

Google does not like the same Article, Contents, Post or YouTube Content, nor will any searcher want to read it and in such a situation neither traffic nor any income will come on it.

That is why we should always post a valuable and unique content on our blog so that the authority of our blog can be built in the search engine.

Be Passionate: The purpose of a professional blogger is to earn money from his blog. Still, if he does blogging just to earn money, then he will never be able to become a successful blogger.

Whatever be the work, if the goal of doing it is only to earn money, then we will not be able to do that work successfully. This is an absolute truth which my experience tells.

We will be successful in blogging only when our mind will be fully engaged in learning it and along with providing Valuable Content to others, we have to keep on motivating ourselves.

For this, we have to work with a positive approach and also have to be passionate about our work i.e. blogging with patience. We should work on that thing in which we have the most knowledge and interest.

Read Other’s Good Blogs and Books: To write well in blogging, it is necessary that we read the best blogs of others written on our niche. Because in order to write well, it is necessary for us to have sufficient knowledge on that subject, only then we will be able to write a great Valuable Content in our language.

The advantage of reading other’s blogs is that how to write a blog professionally is known about these methods. Along with this, we should also keep studying new books regularly.

These are some of the ways that prove helpful in becoming a great blogger.

Do not copy content from other blogs: On any topic on which we are going to write content or article, surely some post will definitely be available on Google in advance, it is almost certain.

In such a situation, we cannot copy-paste someone’s article directly on our blog. This is against the law under the Copyright Act, which Google never accepts.

If we do this, then Google can penalize our blog, which can make it difficult for our blog to rank in Google in the future.

That’s why we should always write content in our own language, which can be unique as well as add value to others.

Target only one Niche: Earlier many such blogs were made which used to provide content over Multi Niche and all of them have been very successful too.

But today, if we search on Google on any topic, then we see more results than thousands of blogs related to it, on which we get information.

So in such a situation, people do not enjoy reading blogs made on Multi Niche, in which posts are written on many topics.

If we publish health related content or education related content in our technology blog, then it will also confuse our user and will create problem to rank in Google also.

Therefore, we always have to work on our niche, that is, if articles related to Career are posted on our blog, then we should write articles only about Education and Career in it.

So that the trust of the user remains on our blog and they stay connected with it.

Contribute to the blogs of others related to your niche: This is called Guest Posting or Guest Blogging which is very important for a successful blogging.

Under this, on the Niche or Topic on which our blog is made, we have to write guest posts on other best blogs made on the same niche, which are ranking very well on Google, where we post articles with our blog details.

For this, first we have to make a list of other blogs written on our niche and contact the blogger concerned.

So that we can Appreciate them for Guest Post on their blog.
