  17. sami says

    Hi Alex,
    Soon, i’ll buy SEO course, the article is awesome. Can we write scientific blog for example on chemistry, mathematics and Physics. Is scientific blogs have any value? i’m newbie i have no idea. please, help me. Thanks for your time in advance.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Sami

      There is nothing wrong with scientific blogs but two things to consider are:
      1. Is there enough search demand for it? In other words, do people search for scientific blogs and for what exact topics?
      2. Can you offer a product or service to your readers that can help them solve a problem or learn more about a topic you’ll be covering in your blogs?

      Try to answer these questions before starting your blog. They will help you understand what kind of content to provide and what audience to target.

      Hope this helps

  18. Dhruvir Zala says

  19. Zoe says

    Hi Alex,

    Great post!

    I have a question for you, wondering if you know the answer to…

    If you create a piece of content and optimize it for SEO with internal links, should you avoid linking to posts in another category on your site? If so, would it be wise to add a nofollow link to those links?

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Zoe

      No, in fact, you should link to other posts within your website, including category page you want to improve their rankings. You should NOT add a nofollow link for any of your internal links. These links should be followed.

      Hope this helps

  20. Aakash Verma says

    Great Alex,
    I like your article so much❤️. I was thinking to start my own blog but was not able to execute. But after reading this I started my blog 😉
    Thanks to you👍🏽🤘

  21. Sanjeev P says

    Hi Alex,
    This post is a veritable Wikipedia on how to start a blog and make money for beginners. I tend to agree with you when you advise to not use AdSense when you can make through Affiliate marketing. I think the real money is in affiliate marketing and selling your own courses or ebooks.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Sanjeev

      Adsense is an easy way to make money blogging, especially for beginners. But as you grow your traffic and audience, affiliate marketing or making money from your own products is the best way to go.

      All the best

  22. M Charles says

    This post is truly informative. I think one of the most crucial things you mentioned as the generation of organic traffic. It is essential to note the 3 points you highlighted:
    1. One must write good and unique qualitative content.
    2. One must know how to use the right keyword for his website.
    3. One must leverage the power of back-linking.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi M Charles

      That’s right. Those 3 points are essential if you want to get Google traffic to your blog.

      All the best

  23. Kridita says

    I love writing stuffs and as I just got into college, I was planning to start a blog of my own to earn some money. But some say it’s not suitable for students as it consumes too much time. I don’t want to hamper my studies. Do you think blogging is suitable for students who want to make money beside studying?

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Kridita

      Yes, blogging is a great way for students to make money on the side provided that you have the necessary time to allocate to both blogging and your studies.

      If you cannot manage both, you should finish your studies first and then start with blogging. It’s never too late to start a blog.

      I hope this helps

    Thanks, Alex for such useful information. 🙌
    As a beginner, I want to start my blog. Currently, I am a medico studying in college. I do write poems, articles, diaries..paint too.
    So I m in doubt what should I choose as a niche, that whether my poetries will able to engage more traffic or not?
    Actually, I do also want to help people by sharing my knowledge of health with them, which is related to my profession itself in such a hectic daily life.
    But I m confused about what should I go for …. could u plz help me Alex ….it would be great.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Anjali

      If your goal is to make money blogging, you should take into account three factors when choosing a topic for your blog:

      1. You should blog on topics that people search for on Google.
      2. Your blogs should help people solve a problem or answer a question.
      3. You should think in advance how you can monetize your blog either by creating your own products or selling other people’s products.
      4. Blog on evergreen topics.

      I hope this helps


  27. Jean says

    Last week I created a blog and now I am studying monetization practices because I love to write and I believe that I have already discovered that this is my passion and your article brought me many answers that I was looking for.

    Thank you for delivering us quality content as not everyone is committed to delivering content like that to readers and I also see that it shouldn’t be easy at all.

    I will follow your posts.

  28. Bindilal says

    Hey Alex,

    I just found your blog and I’ve found every article I’ve read very helpful and informative. Today I have learned about make money blogging.

    Thanks you!

  29. Isuamfon Offiong says

    Thank you Alex for a great read.

    Although the excitement of creating a blog is comparable to the adrenaline rush of eating pizza in the dream, because we are like, “ohh, I’m gonna start a blog today and make money next week”.

    But the truth is, these expectations without an equal action in search of traffic always result in failure.

    While affiliate marketing is quite popular, I believe the definition of it is recommending value to your audiences cause without that, if you recommend a bad product then no one wants to buy what you recommend the next time.

    All in all, thanks for the breakdown of affiliate marketing trategy.

    Will come back for more.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Isuamfon

      That’s true, starting a new blog is exciting and the idea that someday it will also make money for you, it what keeps most bloggers moving forward, despite the difficulties.

      All the best with your new blog.

  30. Paul says

    Hi Alex,
    I really appreciate your effort in this awesome blog post! Truly amazing! Blogging is not an easy task if you mean it seriously and want to make a steady income from your blog. It is so complex, that not everybody is capable to do it correctly. I think that these days is nearly impossible to make money blogging by yourself. You have to cooperate, collaborate, and outsource as much work as you can…Once again, thanks for sharing this excellent post.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Paul

      When creating a blog, you need to learn how to do everything yourself. As your blog grows and starts making money, outsourcing tasks and getting outside help, is the way to go.

      All the best

    Such a long and detailed guide. I love it! Thank you Alex for creating such an amazing piece of content. And I totally agree when you said good on-page SEO can get us to the first page, but a good off-page SEO can get us to the top position. Too many bloggers focus too much on their blogs and they forget about marketing and working OUTSIDE their blogs. Thanks again, you inspired me to put in more effort to grow my blog. Cheers, Shawn

  44. Kumar Abhishek says

    Dear sir
    Today, yeah absolutely… I’ve more recently started using video (vlogging) to help support my written content (blogging), plus platforms like YouTube that host videos can be GREAT sites to not only acquire new audiences/drive traffic to your blog, but also engage your existing audience in new ways. In my experience, blogging is still more lucrative, but there are plenty of vloggers who earn a lot through sponsorships especially if they have large, engaged social followings.

    • Alex Chris says

      Hi Anuradha

      Yes, you can combine affiliate marketing links and Adsense ads in a single article. Both are great ways to make money online but you need to consider what is more beneficial for you. Is it the money from ad clicks or the commission from making a sale? Technically you can have both but from a business perspective, it might be better to choose one of the two for each article to optimize your earnings.

      I hope this helps
