Blogging is the easiest and the most common way to make money online , but a lot of people are unable to kick start their blog because of many reasons. Well if you are thinking of starting a new blog in 2013 you must keep these things into consideration.
1) Build up your mind
Well, it is not easy to simply build up your mind; blogging is not a child’s game. Setting up your mind is extremely important for a newbie blogger, because if you do not set up your mind you cannot blog successfully. Nothing is easy in this world, and nor is blogging. Blogging takes a lot of time and effort. The most important thing you’ll need for blogging is hard work and will-power. Without any of the above mention quality, your blog will be just another existence online without any real meaning behind your blog, known by only a few people. So first try to build up some motivation and will-, because if you lose heart midway, all your hard work will be lost.
2) Remember competition
The next most important thing you should know is that the world of blogging is simply fully packed with people, who are eager to make money and who have been dependent on blogging for their survival. There are many ProBlogger’s who have been blogging from a long time ago. Therefore there is a lot of competition out there. There is a blog present about almost anything that you can possibly imagine. And as already said that there are many ProBlogger’s it is definite that they will be ahead of you for some time. However if you create good quality contents then it is possible that you might be ranked well within a short period of time.
3) SEO and Algorithm Updates by Google
Google keeps on rolling out algorithm updates almost every year. During the past two year Google has released the Panda and Penguin algorithm. This decreased the amount of visitors and the website authority of many top web blogs. These algorithms hit a lot of websites, and therefore, as a beginner, you should look for such updates by Google and try to adapt them to your website to increase your website authority.
4) Author Rank
Just like PageRank ranks webpages, the author rank does rank authors. Google+ profiles are extremely important for this. Using this way, spam will be reduced, and people who write quality content will rise to the top. Their Author Rank will also impact their page rank of their website.
