#Share us few things about yourself and your blog?
Hi Guys! My name is Anil Agarwal and I’m the guy behind BloggersPassion.com blog. I have running this successfully since 2010. With this blog, I’m aiming at helping those bloggers who want to start a blog of their own and earn money from it.
#What made you enter in blogging?
I was due to my SEO career I get into Blogging domain. Initially I was using free blogging sites to create backlinks for business websites. But with time I started noticing the true potential of blogging.
#How was your experience in blogging at the initial stage?
I would say my experience in blogging domain has been full of learning from day one till date. I must say I have improved a lot as a blogger over the period of time. No doubt there have been ups and downs in this journey.
Sometime back my blog was hit by Google Animals (Panda & Penguin), but with my SEO skills, I was able to recover from them.
When I started blogging, Google Adsense was the only way I know to earn money from my blogs. But when my Adsense account was banned due to reasons which were not in my control, for a moment I feel as if everything is lost. But then slowly I started learning about other monetization methods.
#What’s your strategy for creating visibility to yourself and your blog?
There are lots of things I’m try doing for increasing visibility for my blog and me.
- I try to drive maximum traffic to my blog from search engines.
- I also try to be active on major social media sites and try to connect with other bloggers in my niche and my blog readers.
- I try to help whenever someone reach out to be online/offline.
- Recently started building email list as these days everyone is saying Money is in the list.
- Trying to be more active on other blogs in my niche through my guest posts, comments and being part of various roundup posts.
#Name your favorite blog and blogger
My favorite bloggers are Brian Dean from Backlinko, Neil Patel, Matthew Woodward & Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income.
#Name your favorite post published in your blog
Its very difficult to pick few posts which are my favorite as most of them are my favorite. Still sharing couple of them here:
#Who is your inspiration in blogging?
Amit Agarwal & Darren from ProBlogger.net are my inspirations. I started learning about blogging initially through their blogs and Amit Agarwal’s one of popular post on Labnol where he has shared his Adsense earnings really motivated me to get into blogging.
#What is your advice for the new blogger to make their blog successful?
For New Bloggers, I would just say pick a niche you are most passionate about and keep working hard on it for the first year at least. Don’t give up within 3-4 months time when you see you are not getting the results. So give your blog at least one year before deciding whether it was a success or failure.
#What is the important factor you always see for your blog post to reach maximum?
I try to make sure each and every post that I’m doing on my blog is SEO optimized. I try to give it a killer headline and description. And most importantly try to target one keyword at least with most of my posts.
#Which tool or website is useful to make a blog famous?
There are different tools available depending upon our needs. We can use SEMrush or Moz to do competitor analysis and for for improving our own websites and blog SEO. BuzzSumo can be used to find the most shared headline for any entered keyword.
#Can you tell few things about my blog “Traffic Crow”?
I really love your blog design. You have nicely used your homepage to show important pages & offers. There is one suggestion I would like to share at post level. Right now no content is available in the first fold at post level as most of space is used by your post title & featured image. You can think of using a small image here.
#What’s your strategy with your blog in general?
My Strategy with my blog is to help newbie bloggers with their blogging needs. I want to help them to be successful with their blogs. And at the same time want to make a name for me and my blog.
