How new bloggers misguided and attracted to the earnings of other bloggers? How they are wasting money on hangouts and other stuff without proper research? I’m going to bring awareness among newbies so that they should not spoil their valuable time and career falling in this trap.
New bloggers are welcomed and can be the part of the bloggers family in terms of sharing their knowledge with the world. Along with passion everyone needs a livelihood and blogging is one of the good sources of earning the same. But how to earn money with blogging? This is where newbie bloggers getting confused and taking the wrong path. Yes absolutely wrong path. After reading this article you will come to know the biggest risk you are taking in your life and betting your valuable time.
There are two kinds of bloggers in terms of popularity, earning:
- Established bloggers
- New bloggers
Established bloggers almost settled with their blog in many aspects of blog safety, good source of earning and decent life style. They also focus on other money earning sources like Internet Marketing, offering services, etc.
There are some bloggers who share their earning reports in Facebook and also write articles in their blogs. I’m not saying those earning reports are genuine or not. But do not get carried away with those screenshots. Let’s assume they are genuine. Ofcourse they should be for all the hardwork they did since years. Here the problem starts.
As and when these earning reports are shared, people who are entirely new to blogging get attracted and determine to earn the same money as quick as possible. They are misguided (Yes you are misguided) to take wrong path to earn fast cash. Ofcourse you may earn fast money but this is not at all permanent and once this money earning stops then you will fall in depression in similar pace and waste your valuable time and career thinking in dark.
But, how newbies are misguided?
Job sites – SMS Blogs- Event based blogs
There was a trend of blogs that share information related to exam results, bank jobs, recruitment, admit cards. But there is nothing new in the content related to these topics. Between 2009-2011/12 people earned quite well but later competition started to grow and Google Adsense on such sites also faced bans. I came across not less than 30-40 bans in 2012 exclusively on such sites. This is not limited only to the job or results sites. It is also extended to sites sharing SMS, wishes on events such as New Year, Christmas and other festivals or Rose day, Valentines day, etc… These kind of blogs also facing huge adsense risk and Google penalties. Moreover if such blogs are hosted on Blogger then you never know when they get deleted by Google. Ofcourse these are use and throw blogs but a day comes where Google will stop completely de-indexing such blogs or restrict adsense in such niche then you will be put in dark.
When you are already earning money that you might have never seen earlier and suddenly if that revenue generation stops then your balance of mind gets disturbed heavily. Moreover there is no skill involved or any learning you did in that blogs. So after these blogs are dead then you do not have any skill to encash. Then you will start thinking “Why I did not learn any skill or a programming language which can be used to sell services that feed me forever?”
How new bloggers waste money through Paid hangouts?
Here are the examples how people attract you:
- Learn SEO – Earn $2000 per month after this hangout – Fees $100
- Learn Internet Marketing in 3 sessions and earn $1000 per week. Benefits- Live earning reports, Secret Facebook Group access, live blog example – Fees $300
I should start laughing at the people who subscribed to such jokers. If they know the secret do you think they will share it completely with you? NO WAY. There are many people who cheat new bloggers but main mistake lies with the new bloggers. Here I blame newbies more not the one who attract you.
There may be genuine hangouts but hardly one finds them. I do not mean to say every paid hangout is a waste of money. I’ve personally discussed with those who attended those paid hangouts and just no words to express their anger. They are unable to express it in public as they are afraid of those senior bloggers who gave such hangouts. These new bloggers shared with me that not even 1% of the hangout serves the exact purpose of earning money. No real blog example shown.
Come on new bloggers! Do you think you will get the secret of earning money by subscribing to those funny paid hangouts? NO WAY. If you get the secret then they will face immediate competition from you right 😛
Listen! No one will share the secret. Moreover there is no SECRET. If there is a success formula to make a movie big hit then everyone makes hit movies only. But why only 1 or 2 films are super hit out of thousands of films made every year? Means there is no success formula or a standard thumb rule to make every movie a super hit. Same with blogging. Now you got my point!
So do not waste your money and risk your Adsense in the greed of earning fast cash. All you got to is follow the steps below to be successful online:
- Study other blogs
- Learn SEO (this is not a big subject)
- Observe how other blogs using keywords, meta, frequency of posting articles, etc
Do your own research and start your own blog. Let it be a fail but you gain more from it. You learn how to observe, research, study SEO, Google Algos and many other topics on your own. Moreover you will learn all the things that are useful to your blogging career and your valuable time will never be wasted.
So next time you will again start building such a blog that overcomes all the above limitations and create a rock solid money earning blog of your own.
If you are a newbie or if you already experienced such trap then do not get afraid to share your story in the comments! This helps newbies to take great care of not falling in such trap while choosing blogging as their career.
