Suppose you started niche that you are not interested and comfortable with which means you can’t do it for long many of you do the same and thereafter you leave blogging just saying that blogging hard for me which don’t make any sense that why choosing a niche very essential at the beginning

Keyword research

Keyword yet another part of blogging which also can’t be ignored before writing any content you required first to research due its very important know the keywords volume and the overall competition unless is very hard to determine the things

There are many tools already present in the market which you can utilize for your keyword strategy tools like

Google Keyword Planner

SEMrush

Domain Name

Domain Name is very essential if you decided to do the things in professional way you can take an example of us we are using a top level domain name rather than a subdomain there are many register out there to but one that i using from last 3 to 4 years which is GoDaddy which provides a great customer support and no issue once you get the domain

Before choosing a domain Make you do these things first

Easy to remember : Your domain must have short and easy to remember which allows users remember your URL(Uniform Resource Locator)

Top Level domain : Top Level are best when you choose if you notice domain extension which usually use like .com, .org, .net these are top level domain’s and you always choose .com if you want to start your blog one of the biggest reason why most of sites use’s .com due its rank well on globally

Hosting

Most of you move to blogger just because you won’t invest in hosting and this is core part of your blog and when you started a blog domain+hosting is required the better the hosting you choose the performance you get it doesn’t mean you go for expensive hosting and i don’t recommend in the beginning you go for it

Types of hosting

Shared

Shared hosting on of the reliable and pocket friendly for a beginner this types of hosting are affordable where’s the in one sever many sites are exist reason why the cost is usually split by the customers who opt this plans and really beneficial for you at beginning

Dedicated

In Dedicated hosting you are only who are on the server no one else is existed which obvious that to managed the cost of this type of hosting price’s are high but the speed and the performance you get which is far better then shared as shared sever has it own limit for handling traffic and you only opt this types of hosting if you having a great traffic

VPS

VPS stands for Virtual Private Sever this type hosting requires for those sites that have huge number of traffic which requires more and more resource to fulfil then VPS is best option the most common resource in this hosting DIsk Space, RAM allocation and the bandwidth for a beginner VPS also not recommended

Cloud

Cloud hosting is yet another hosting which maintain load and uptime not to rely on single sever it uses different severs means no matter if one is not working then other keep on working

Types of Cloud Hosting

Public

Private

Hybrid & Managed

In the beginning you require hosting that not expensive at all avoid VPS and dedicated hosting at beginning always prefer a shared hosting when you think your traffic increase then move to others but please avoid an expensive hosting when you about to start but make sure the hosting you opt provide a proper speed and good performance

For Beginners these two hosting providers that works best for beginners first Bluehost & Hostinger

Which blogging platform is good

Choosing right blogging platform is very essential in the beginning

Blogger

When I started blog with blogger i thought free blogging would be perfect for me but over time i understand that free blogging platforms have their own issues such as blogger where i started over the time you experience many issue’s e,g SEO, Themes customization, Permalinks, limited support of file attachment support & Plugin support reason why i moved to a self hosted WordPress

Blogger is not bad at all you can start blog without paying anything for just casual blogging when it comes earn money for my case i would suggest to move to WordPress its one of best CMS that provides everything you need

WordPress

One last thing you need to know about WordPress and the reason why i recommended to go for WordPress not blogger due it has some disadvantage which i faced and moved to WordPress and still stick to it because of its advantages over blogger and i think its very hard to move the things to WordPress where’s you lose ranks if you already ranking for some keywords

But, if the things do in a proper way means there is no lose of rank which requires you to take a backup your blog and thereafter you need to setup your WordPress

Its been very difficult for me to adjust with WordPress it look me 3 month to adjust so far the first require a gain these traffic
