Should I start with WordPress if I am a beginner

You have created a blog to earn money am I right? and blogging can make you rich but to become a rich person with the help of blogging, you can buy hosting and come to the WordPress but I suggest you that if you are new to blogging field and have no prior experience start with a free blogspot blog and learn to blog and earn after that you can host your website on wordpress.

What is Blogspot ? 

Blogspot is a subdomain of Blogger. When anyone creates a free blog on Blogger, Blogger gives a sub domain to people who want to create a free blog on Blogger.

This means people don’t need to pay anything for their domain. In  .com, .US, .Net, and so on.Setting up these domains is a little bit difficult for beginners who are new in the blogging field, but not the case with blogspot.

You don’t need to set up blogspot for your blog, it will be automatically set up to your blog by creating a free blog on blogspot.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Blogspot Blog

Blogspot subdomains have some benefits and drawbacks that you should be aware of if you intend to use them.It helps you to grow your blog and sometimes you will feel like getting another domain will be good for you, so learn what the advantages and disadvantages of Blogspot are.


Some advantages are mentioned below. Here you will know what the advantages are of using a blogspot sub domain and how it will help me.

It’s Totally Free

When you want to take domains like.Com, .Net, .US,.In, etc, you have to pay $5-$10$ for each domain. The more domains are available, the more domains are available for only 1 or 2 dollars.

But you don’t need to pay anything for the blogspot domain. It’s totally free. So the first advantage of the blogspot domain is that it’s totally free.

Don’t need to Set Up

When you buy other domains for your blog, after that you have to set up your purchased domain to blog, which will be difficult for people when they are new in the blogging field, but this is not the case with blogspot sub domain.

You don’t need to set this up. Once you have created a free blog on blogspot, the blogspot sub domain will be automatically added to your blog, so you don’t need to set up the blogspot sub domain.

It’s Private 

You can get details like when this domain was registered, when it will expire and many more things about domains like  .com, net, etc on whois, but you can’t get details of any blogspot sub domain because it is Google’s product and Google is very strict about privacy.


You get some disadvantages with blogspot sub domain. You should also know these disadvantages so that you can do what is best for you.

Bad User engagement

When people see a blogspot sub domain, they don’t click on it. That is not good for a blogger because if they don’t click on it, i can’t get traffic, and getting more traffic is the most important thing in blogging. With the help of traffic, bloggers make more money.

It is Difficult to Rank on Google

Yes, blogspot sub domain is hard to rank. If you are using blogspot sub domain, you won’t get positive results immediately.

I want to ask a question:

How many times you have seen a blogspot domain is ranking on google search results? 

Probably your answer will be very less because it is very hard to rank blogspot domain on top 10 results of google.

I had also started with a blogspot subdomain, but couldn’t get any positive result with blogspot as I knew it, I immediately bought a new domain and I got results with the new domain. 

I would like to say that atleast buy a custom domain to a blogger website which will help you to grow your blog.

My Suggestion – You have made a blog for earning and you make money when you get traffic, whereas you can’t get more traffic with a blogspot sub domain, so you can’t make money more with the help of a blogspot sub domain.

Before, create a free blog on blogspot ? You should choose the perfect niche. Let’s talk about it.

What is a Niche ? 

A niche is a topic related to what kind of article you publish on your blog. Choosing a perfect niche is very important when starting a blog because you are creating your content related to which niche. Your audience will be made according to your niche.

How to Choose the Perfect Niche for Your Blog ?

Many niches are available to start blogging, but not all niches are for everyone, so choose a niche in which you are interested. To choose a niche, you should keep 3 things in mind.

High Revenue

According to interest



You should keep it in your mind that the niche you are targeting has how much profitable and how much earning potential means how much cpc and rpm a niche has and you will get in that niche and how many earning sources in that niche and you will also have to see does anyone search queries related to that niche on google.

Every niches are not profitable some are more profitable and some are less profitable

because you want to create a blog for earning, so high revenue niches are the most important for you to start.

According to your Interest

Choose your niche according to your interests because interest is the most important thing to choosing a perfect niche for your blog. Without interest, It doesn’t matter how much profitable your niche is

For example,

If I start a blog on health where I have no interest in health, I will  probably quit this blog after some time because I have no interest in health, so I can’t write top quality articles in the health niche and I can’t run this blog for a long time.

If I have an interest in making money online and I start a blog in this niche, I can work better in this niche than in the niche I have no interest in.


Many people ask if I have no expertise in any particular niche but have an interest, then should I start a blog in that niche. I would like to tell those people

Yes you can start a blog in which niche you are interested and don’t have expertise.

The Psychology Says: even though your are not an expert in any niche but you can become an expert in which you are interested, even after being an expert, you can’t work well in which you are not interested.

I hope you will get understand

As you learned above, in the process of ranking, Google’s crawlers enter our blog and they crawl our web pages or content, but with the help of custom robot.txt, you give instructions to Google about which pages of my blog are allowed to crawl and which are not.

Because when you don’t want to crawl some pages like category, archives etc of my blog, you can disallow them to be crawled by creating a robot.txt file.

You can submit it according to this structure in your robot.txt section.

User-agent: Mediapartners-Google Disallow: User-agent: * Disallow: /search Allow: / Sitemap:

Heading tag option in post editor of blogger

When you write a paragraph, write in normal, which you can see in the headings section of your post.

My suggestion is to write a quality content.

Find Low Competition Keyword

Many keyword research tools are available where you can find low competition keywords. Now that you are new to blogging, you should focus on low competition keywords, not on how many people are searching your keyword, so you should try 0-5 keyword difficulty in the beginning.

When you search for any keyword on Google, if you see any forum sites like Quora, etc., or YouTube videos, or the results in which they haven’t put the keyword in the title, that you are searching for in the top 10 results,

Then understand that this is a very low competition keyword and this is a good opportunity for you to write a quality article on that keyword and rank fast on Google.

Once you rank on Google, then you can target. Then you should focus on high traffic keywords.

Research Well

After finding the low competition keyword now, you will have to research how you can do it.

Enter your main keyword into the Google search bar, then look at who ranks in the top ten and analyse their content. How can I write better than what the results show?

Add a related keyword to your article. Just search for your main keyword on Google. After that, click on the space button on your device to see results like this.

Way to find related keyword for article

Include the question from people also ask section on search results. The more click on the question the more question will be shown.

People also ask section in google search results

Now you can see that the keywords that are being shown below are your related keywords. Use these keywords in your articles.

Related search in Google search results

You should use keywords in people’s also ask and related search terms like this.


After writing your article, put this article on a label so that users can find your article easily.

Note –Label” is a category.

For example,

If I write an article on how to apply for a credit card, I will put that article in the credit card label. If I write an article on how to get a student loan, then I put that article in the student loan label. So consider the label as a category.

Before putting your article on labels, you will have to make labels.


It is better for SEO if your permalink is short.Write your permalink like this.

Every word should be small, and no numbers or symbols should be used in the permalink.

Permalink option in blogger

Search Description

Search description is also known as meta tag in WordPress. Search description is to describe your content in a few words so that user can know what is the article about before clicking on the title.

Then, write a search description for your article that what have you told in this article what user will get in this article.
