Event Blogging : My Experience & Tips to Rank
Blogging takes time !
It requires dedication, patience, and hustle but when we talk about event blogging this cut down definition of Blogging.
Yeah In event blogging we can make money instantly. It’s quite popular in newbie and intermediate blogger. Few of them are also making money but most of them are not making much.
From last 6-7 months i created many event blogs and In this post I’ll tell you about my experience and why i don’t recommend to do it.
I’ll also tell you major ranking factors which helped me rank event blog.
You are here ! You must be knowing What is Event Blogging ? but let me explain it briefly for them who don’t know.
Event Blog is niche blog which is created for receive huge amount of traffic on any specific event such as festival or result. In Simple words in event blogging we target New year 2017 or JEE mains 2017 results etc. keywords and we try to rank and bank.
I hope you are clear Now Let’s me continue…
Almost 7 months ago somehow i knew about event blogging and this was very interesting for me.
Can i earn 1000-2000$ a day ? Oh great started it with lots of expectations.
I created an event blog using Blogger with custom domain. Now creating Backlinks was main issue and you know very well that everyone is stealing competitors Backlinks and i also did the same.
I found lots of dofollow auto approve comments sites and started making Backlinks. I also made lots of response Backlinks by using Footprints.
I created 3000+ Backlinks in less than 30 days by 120+ Referring Domains (RD) but after grinding 40 days I failed to rank this blog on first page.
Now, I researched a lot why others websites ranking and why i didn’t rank.
I found there are many reasons but biggest reason was domain age. Yeah It’s still one of the biggest ranking factor and my domain was very new so i didn’t preformed well in search engine.
After analyzing various things I was pretty sure. There is nothing which will stop me to rank my blog and started a new blog by 1 year old domain ( not EMD, I don’t think this is helpful too much now).
Again Started the same Backlinks strategy i.e. Stealing Competitors Backlinks. After doing this i was happy to see my results i was on 1st page of google on my targeted keywords.
I updated my post by adding few paragraphs and images and created more Backlinks and improved my ranking.
Now my position was very good. I was very happy to see my ranking but on event day few sites came on first page of google and they outranked me.
Now, I was hopelessness. I worked very hard, i ranked my sites on first page but i made only 45$.
after being outranked i found 5-6 site are authority sites such as India.com and the Hindu etc. and they were ranking due to high authority and few of them were event blog & they were ranking due to Site-wide Links.
So, the key behind ranking was Site-wide Link.
Few of them also redirect old page to new page and then they try to rank. This is helpful but It’s risky.
Finally, I got the whole concept and ranked on many events (festivals & exam) and made good amount of money.
I’m not going to share whole process how to create event and how to make Backlinks because those things are already available in many sites.
Here I’ll tell you some keys which help me to rank and maintain rank of event blogs.
- Take old domain for events, If you don’t wanna take old domain then buy at least 6 months before event.
- Most Important factor of ranking event is Backlinks. Make backlinks more than competitors.
- Don’t hesitate to do keyword stuffing actually this will help a lot.
- Take Sitewide before 1 week of event. – Most Important.
- Comment in Top Comment Enable blog – It’s sitewide 😉
- Start Indexing Your Backlinks before few days of event.
Now a days, Lots of newbies are doing event blogging &after doing hard work they are not able to make money.They demotivate and few quit blogging soon. I would like to tell that blogging needs patience & passion. They should learn good things rather than learning these spam and blackhat things.
