Things to do before you start a blog.
A few years back, anyone could create a blog using a couple of dollars and write whatever they wanted. But today, creating a blog with unique content that ranks on the search engine is very different and challenging.
Here are some tips that you can use on your blog to make it successful. You can read about all the tips that you can follow before you start a blog.
Research the niche and its background.
I have mentioned numerous times why the niche is essential and why niche blogging is best if you want to grow your blog in 2023 or beyond. Finding a niche that keeps you motivated to write and always makes you write would be best.
The best way to do so is to write what you like, such as for students interested in clothing, hair styling and traveling. For moms, they like to read about parenting, house decor, and all. So if you find one, you can write about multiple topics.
Look at the seasonality.
When you start a blog at the beginning of the year, suppose between January to march, then you have to find the right topic or check the seasonality of the topic.
To check the seasonality of the topic or niche, you can use a tool that google provides for free – Google trends.
Just enter the name of a topic or keyword and see the seasonality of the topic. If you see any spike, a particular topic is most searched during that particular month or season.
Generally, most new blogs take about 6-8 months to index and rank on the first page of search engines. So it is essential if you start writing about the seasonal topics 6-8 months before the actual search made by the searchers.
