This module is your stepping stone into the world of blogging with a focus on monetization through AdSense. Let's embark on this journey together, ensuring that each step you take is strategic and impactful.
Getting Started with Content Creation
To kick things off, your primary goal is to get your blog approved by AdSense. This requires a foundational setup of your blog, starting with content creation.
You'll need to craft a minimum of 15 blog posts, each consisting of at least 500 words. This is not just a number; it's your initial content portfolio that showcases your blog's value to both AdSense and your readers.
Choosing Your Niche
Focusing on a niche is crucial for your blog's identity and success.
For the best results, create your content around one of the following lucrative niches:
* If you are planning on using our paid traffic method:
- Making Money Online
- Software as a Service (SAAS)
* If you are not planning on using our paid traffic method, you can do any other niches you want, notably:
These niches are not only popular but also filled with opportunities to provide valuable content to your audience, which in turn, enhances your AdSense approval chances.
Finding Blog Post Suggestions:
Later during this training, I will show you how to leverage Pinterest and model your content on those who succeed. Why Pinterest? Because they don't prioritize pins that have the most views in order to rank. This means anyone could be at the top of the page, regardless how many followers or views they have. This knowledge is priceless when you know what to do with it. We will dive deeper on this method in module #6
Blog Post Essentials
While SEO can enhance your blog's visibility, it's not a prerequisite for your initial posts. However, to ensure your blog posts resonate professionalism and appeal, do not overlook the importance of a 'featured image' and the inclusion of relevant tags.
These elements add a visual appeal and context to your posts, making them more engaging and accessible to your audience.
Crafting Your Featured Images
Creating captivating featured images is simpler than you might think. With a tool like Canva, you can design professional-looking images that complement your blog posts. Canva's user-friendly interface allows you to unleash your creativity without the need for advanced graphic design skills. I found a video on Youtube that shows the basics of Canva: Click Here
Tags play a vital role in organizing your content and improving the discoverability of your blog posts. You can generate relevant tags using a free tool like ChatGPT.
Upon receiving approval from AdSense, the next critical step is integrating AdSense into your blog. This involves adding your unique AdSense code to your blog posts. This code is responsible for displaying ads on your blog and can automatically be added in your blog posts.
