ADVICE, TIPS, TRICKS
Why did you start blogging in the first place?
I wanted to make money online. I wanted a freedom lifestyle, I wanted to work anywhere in the world!
How did you start to earn money blogging
I made my first blog posts with the only intention of ranking it in the search engines and making money off of affiliate offers.
I started making affiliate money within 6 months, and then used the blog as experience to get a remote job with an SEO company.
I now only run my own blogs, but do take on clients to help them with optimizing their sites.
How long did it take before you earned money from blogging?
Within 6 months.
What did you do before blogging? When was the moment you realized you can blog as a full time job?
I ran my own makeup and hairstyling business. I realized blogging was lucrative when I kept reading everywhere that people were making money from their blogs.
What is the most effective strategy for promoting your blog?
To implement SEO from the beginning. Always be learning new things. Since I’ve got SEO down, I’m now learning social media strategies
What are some affiliate marketing sources that can be useful for beginners, that don’t have so much traffic on their website?
Depending on your niche, learn to use Pinterest to your advantage. It can drive traffic to your website a lot faster than SEO.
How often do you use SEO, and what are the best SEO tools you would recommend?
I use SEO every time I make a blog post. Since Google’s keyword planner is no longer offering accurate results for keywords, I’m using Toolfeast’s Autosuggest for keyword research.
In the beginning, I loved SEOMoz, Semrush, and Ahrefs to look at my competitors.
What is your opinion on email marketing, and how can someone start using it on a regular basis, what are your advice?
I love having an email list to connect and build my “know, like, trust” factor with my audience. I am working on that right now, and I see the potential in building that relationship, and it’ll benefit my business for any future products or services I may offer.
First there was just… LINK BUILDING LINK earning…I’ve been trying to write this post for few days, it was supposed to be about link building, one of the SEO strategies. But, things got complicated. I wanted to educate myself first. And when you’re asking the […]

Let’s learn how to use SEO PLUGIN.If you’re a complete beginner in this SEO Village, welcome. I recommend you to come back to the beginning and check out some beginner steps before you come here and start learning about plugins. I started exploring trough the world of SEO, and I saw that everybody is talking about the plugin for the WordPress called Yoast SEO. Before you’re able to install that plugin to your WordPress, you need to have your website on Wordpress.org. As a beginner, I made a mistake for not installing wordpress.org. Go back to my article about keywords and see how can you install wordpress.org.
What is SEO YOAST plugin and what can I expect from it?
Be careful though. As a complete beginner in SEO world, I expected SEO plugin to create magic, to do the work instead of me. That is what I got from millions of articles I was reading. And that is what was leading me to another million of articles saying thousands of words and not saying anything basically. SEO Plugin is not there to do magic things. It’s not there to write articles instead of you. You still need to do a lot of things especially if you just started creating a website and content. Yoast plugin is there to help you create better content. Articles that are SEO approved. That are linked to your keywords and connected to your meta description. That is what SEO Is about. Like they said on their page, it’s about simple things we often forget.
HOW CAN YOU USE SEO PLUGIN TODAY?
1.Hope you’re having wordpress.org installed 🙂
2. Go to your dashboard-Plugins-Add new
3. Type in the Search bar Yoast SEO
4.Install and Activate
5. Now, you should be seeing this Icon in your Dashboard
6.When you start writing new post, you should be seeing this under your writing space
7.If you’re doing great, all the Analysis option should be green
Finally, that’s it. So, basically, you’ll see it for yourself. Yoast SEO plugin should just furthermore help you see if you’re on a good road or not. If you’re using your keywords properly or not. If your meta description is good. That’s it for today, hope this article was useful and that you’ll be coming back to the SEO village
