In this guide I’ll elucidate the mistakes in blogging that new bloggers and even old bloggers commit moreover you will also learn how to fix those mistakes and never commit those mistakes because it’s all about personal experience and some research.
Mistake 1- Choosing Blogger instead of WordPress- Nobody wants to invest money in start i agree but if you see the interviews of successful blogger, then you will got to learn that they will suggest you to use WordPress.
Blogger is free and that is the reason more and more people are joining blogger but among them very few are serious. People wants to try their luck.
I would say that if you are literally serious and wants to do something then you must have guts to do some investment.
Mistake 2- Choosing Niche- That is the most important issue that you should think before starting your blogging career.
If you are not sure whether you can write endless about something then you should choose that niche.
If you have interest in Snooker then start a blog of Snooker and then start writing about it.
It’s all about your interest, if you choose something that you are not interested in then eventually you will end up wasting your money.
Mistake 3- SSL Certificate- Well imagine if you open a website and then you will get a message that this site is not secure! will you stay there? Definitely NO!
Either you can purchase SSL Certificate from your hosting providers.
In my case I’ve purchased my ssl Certificate for Rs 855 Lifetime!
Or You can go and choose alternative by signing up for cloudfare.com
Mistake 4- SEO Tool- You know pretty well that you are living in 2020, so i would say that without SEO tool your articles are not going to rank on Google.
You can either use Ahrefs or SEMrush!
Well I’m suggesting you that you should use Ahrefs because majority of people are using Ahrefs.
If you can’t afford the price for ahrefs then you must see the below video and then you will learn that how you can purchase ahrefs for Rs 299 only for a month.
