So you might be thinking “What the heck is this guy saying”, but yes you read it Right. STOP event based niche blogging!. Before ignoring this post just read it completely and you will finally be able to find out the misconceptions regarding event blogging. In this post i will explain you that why you should stop event based niche blogging, the benefits of leaving event based niche blogging and what harm it is indirectly causing you in the long run.
What is event based niche blogging?
Have you ever typed on Google “Happy new year images 2016” or “Merry Christmas sms” (or anything like that)? This is where event blogging comes into action. These are temporary blogs which are made for a short time event like New Year, World cup’s, IPL etc. These blogs are specific and are dedicated to a single micro niche .
Why do people make them?
People make them because of Greed, To earn money faster. Yes who don’t want to be rich. These blogs are profitable enough to make a decent income. I have seen bloggers earning a 4 figure income from these type of blogs.
How they Rank Above long term blogs?
Well it is obvious that they can’t rank naturally, so all they do is make Thousands of backlinks and do a huge amount of black hat SEO to get better rankings. They spam other blogs by making comments you won’t believe with Anchor text of keywords.
The above screenshot is of ahrefs (backlink analyzer tool). Just look at the number of backlinks and referring domains? Not at all good. It clearly states how the domain is ranking. Majority of links are from 3-4 blogs.
What is the problem then?
Well if you ever go and visit some of these blogs you will be shocked to see the ads. These blogs are made to derive money so the advertisement is the main Point of content. You will see ad below post title, above post title, side bar, Top of blog name, End of post and everywhere.
They are actually not providing any content but are providing Attractive headlines to get visitors click there site in Google.
Let me give you an example
Below I am attaching a screenshot of an article you must check to get an idea what it is all about. This blog is ranking on a term “CBSE Results class 10”. And what they are having? Absolutely nothing.
So did you saw those link ads? This is where the most of revenue come from. People don’t have much idea about what is an ad and what real link is, so they click them. But they end up being not able to get what they were looking for.
What is bad in it, it gives me money?
So this is something really important, It gives you money! So why should you not do it.
Have you ever had a cigarette? No? It is bad for health but people still takes it. You don’t, because you know it won’t effect today but in the long run it will lead to a unhealthy being.
So just like a cigarette, event based niche blogging will kill you in long run. Let me elaborate this point.
Everyone knows that Google is continuously developing new technology to give users the best experience. And do you think that Google won’t detect such spam blogs in future? It will definitely.
You may earn a bit today but in the long run you will be defeated. 5-10 years later no spam blogs will rank. And you won’t have a blog with regular readers. Your income will be shattered.
You are not gaining any good experience in this type of blogging; all you learn is some more and new black hat stuff. Everyone knows that one day black hat SEO will be dead, So why to wait for that day. Why don’t you leave it today.
If you will start maintaining a long term blog today, you will gain experience , knowledge, Creditable content. Your name will be some =where in list of top bloggers. When people will ask you you will able to say your blog name. Your life will be a bit different, a bit more respectable.
Let me do event blogging today, I’ll make a Permanent blog in future.
Well it is better to start today, as you already know there is a lot of completion in blogging industry. So if you start today, maintaining a regular blog you may face difficulties today. But after 4 years you will have a blog with a good domain authority. Whatever good you will write, will eventually rank on Google without any much SEO tactics to give your time on. No black hat SEO will be required.
But I require more money and faster
Well in that case, you may go for Niche blogging. They are not spam blogs. You can tell people your blog address without thinking. You may develop some good readers there. It will give you a long term good income.
Niche blogging is really good(and even healthier), even Professionals are doing this. So why don’t you!
“Do it today, Sometimes later becomes never”
[bctt tweet=”Do it today sometimes later becomes never”]
You should leave all short term strategies and switch to long term strategies if you want to take blogging as a career. If you are only doing it for fun and part time money, you may continue (but still not recommended) your evil practices.
Focus on building a high authority blog and write creditable content. This is what it takes to be success full in the world of blogging.
