Blogging is a great way of making some money either on the side of your regular job, or as a full time career. When you’re trying to make money from your blog, it’s more complicated than simply uploading your content and sharing it with your fans.

Whether you’re making money from your blog, or simply running one for fun, it’s important to keep on top of your SEO (search engine optimization). SEO is important because it determines how high your blog and it’s pages will appear in search engine results, and as someone who wants to make money from their blog, you’ll want to appear as high as possible. Good use of SEO comes from your titles, your content, and even the images that appear on your blog. Try to think of what you would search for if you wanted to come across your content and try to incorporate it into your blog. You can get professional help with SEO, so consider investing in SEO services for your blog. The better your SEO, the more chance external companies will want to collaborate with you as well, so it’s a win-win situation!
Your website’s metrics include page views, root domains, page authority, domain authority, and much more. All of these figures matter whether you fully understand them or not. Keeping track and record of all of your metrics will help you determine whether your blog is on the right path or not. Domain authority is what most companies will look at before considering a collaboration with you, so the higher your number, the more chance you have of working with people. You will also be able to charge more money the higher your domain authority is. You should also be keeping an eye on your customer churn to keep track of un-subscribers and make sure that it’s not because of anything you’re doing wrong.
Social Media Accounts
As you’re probably already aware, social media can be a very powerful tool for bloggers because of how easy it is to have a post of yours go viral. It’s important to keep track of how many people are following you and also how many people are engaging in the content that you’re posting. If your numbers begin to drop, it might be time to try a new approach with how to get your readers’ attention. Don’t forget that each social media platform has different algorithms, so you will need to make sure that you’re using each one correctly to get the desired results. Remember that running competitions and giveaways are great ways of catching people’s attention and also encouraging them to share your content with their friends and family.
Keep an eye on these three things and you will be able to stay on top of your blog, allowing it to grow into the business you’ve always wanted it to be.
