Blogging

It is one of the most popular ways of earning online revenue in Nepal. As per the definition of my friend circle, they say ‘Dollar Chhapne’ in Nepal. The literal meaning is to print dollars aka to earn green bucks just as an American says.

What are the choices for Blogging?

If you are totally new and had no money to start with. Then you gonna wanna try Blogger.com or WordPress.com. The biggest disadvantage of using this platform is that it provides you a controlled platform. The best option to learn to blog is getting a free NP CTLD (Nepal Country Level Domain) eg. myname.com.np or myname.info.np. HostingSewa blog has detail on how to get a free domain in Nepal. After, getting a free domain name to proceed with the following steps.

How to start blogging?

Step 01: Go to HostingSewa

Step 02: Search for the best WordPress hosting package. eg. HS 01 will work if you are completely new.

Step 03: Install WordPress from their Cpanel 1-click installer. They also provide free support and installation and Phone Support.

Step 04: Post one article per day at least for the first year. Then after a year, you will start generating traffic and develop a habit of writing smart.

Step 05: After a few weeks, you can apply for Google Adsense and once they approve, you can start showing ads on your website. Do some SEO, drive traffic and you will start earning with your Adsense.

Adsense just works for all types of the site; new or established. For established sites, you can go for Taboola, Media.net, but they are lower-paying in the Asian market. If your target audience is the US & UK, then you can try other networks too.

After your site gets established or start working as a brand, then you can start getting local custom ads also.

Step 01: The very basic this to make excel in SEO is starts from learning basic HTML/CSS. I had seen some people involved in SEO without some website knowledge but using tools only. Some people tricks with Yoast SEO, for basic it works but for real SEO it does not work. But, it makes quite easier for the WordPress blog.

Step 02: Learn about Keywords, Contents, and Web Elements

Step 03:  Continuing from step 02, analyze the contents and also focus on onsite SEO and  Offsite SEO too.

Step 04: The final part of SEO is Search Engine Ranking Position or SERP. You can try some competitor analysis tools like Ahrefs, Semrush, etc.
