By now, you have a topic you’re passionate about and want to share your knowledge with the world.
And since you’re going to be spending the time, it would be nice to monetize it a bit. Something simple to start. Perhaps the Amazon Affiliate Program.
So naturally you want to focus on search engine optimization (SEO) because you don’t have much of an audience yet.
So where do you start?
Well, you start exactly where you thought you should start.
You should start by building your SEO foundation.
Let me explain.
NOTE: When you register your domain at Bluehost through me, I get a few cents of the $3.95. It’s not much. But cents add up and are greatly appreciated.
Websites as Real Rstate
Think about architecture. What buildings are admired the most?
The ones that have been around the longest, right?
That White House is a great example.
The same is true with websites. The websites that have been around the longest are:
- Admired by readers.
- Admired by customers.
- Admired by search engines like Google.
And it makes sense.
Search engines like Google want to serve its users the highest quality search results. Generally, the websites that are older are more quality.
Think about it.
If you’re searching for info on Vitamix, who do you want on the top of your search results? An authority on the topic or someone with an unestablished domain?
The good thing is that you are already an authority on your topic. The problem is that you haven’t claimed your real estate yet.
The White House lives at 1600 Pennsylvania.
What about your website?
Claim your domain
So now that you’re mentally ready to start a blog, it’s time to take the next step.
Register your awesome domain name.
Domains are a websites home address. Mine is uncleleosblog.com.
Once you’ve claimed your real estate in the proverbial Land of Search, then you’re ready for the fun stuff:
- Sharing your knowledge.
- Working on your passion.
- Earning some money for your efforts.
P.S. I recommend registering your domain with Bluehost. It’s free when you sign up for $3.95 / month hosting, something you’ll need to do anyway.
P.P.P.S. After you’ve registered your domain, send me an email and we can talk next steps. 🙂
