No Instant Success In Blogging And The Solutions

Many people created a blog or even blogs to get their success, especially on blog monetization. I’ve see lots of advertisement on the net that offered SUCCESS in a few weeks, even in a few days. I don’t believe any of them. As my background, I’m a former Teacher, so I always believe we need to spend some time to get our success in every part of our life including in blogging (of course).
Do you get your blogging success in one night? Do you make lots of money with your blog in one night? If you did, you are very lucky person. I believe we must provide good information about blogging, and I want to tell my beginner friends: there is no instant success in blogging.
This article base is only on my experiences, from my blogging journey.Β  If you have another or different experiences, you can share here at the comment section or if you disagree with this article we can talk about it together πŸ™‚

Why there is no instant success in blogging?

I have a few points that we must consider that confirm that there is no instant success in blogging.

1. Writing Content.

I’m sure even if you are born as a writer you can’t create 100 pieces of content in few days.

2. Get Index By Search Engines

Your blog sometimes needs to get indexed by search engines, especially if your blog is brand new. You need to be patient to get indexed by search engines.

3. Promotion

You can not promote your blog once, blog promotion is like writing content. You need to promote your blog everyday to get more attention among other blogs.

4. Traffic

Traffic is very important for our blog, traffic is like the feed of our blog. If there is no traffic or visitors our blog will be like a zombie. To get tons of traffic or visitors you need to manage your blog promotion well.

5. Page Rank

Even the importance of Page Rank is debatable, but advertisers still use your Page Rank and you should give importance to it if you want to join ad networks. To get your first page rank you need to wait about 3 months because Google update Page Rank about every 3 months. Lucky me, Google decided Page Rank 3 for my three months blog πŸ™‚

6. Monetizing.

This is every blogger’s dream, making money from their blogs. Even in AdSense, you can’t make money in one or two days and then receive your first $100 from it. It’ll take months or even an year to get success with AdSense. I can never believe a blogger(if there is one) who can get his/her instant success in AdSense. This is because if your account is brand new, your chance to get banned by Google is bigger and if your AdSense revenue increases everyday after you created your AdSense account. There is a myth associated with Google AdSense : Try to play safe until you get your third payment from AdSense. Third payment indicates that you are a trusted AdSense Publisher. So with any other making money program you need to spend more time to get your success.

7. Link Building

Building your links will need some time. Whatever your strategy on link building, you need to perform step by step actions. Google will mark your blog if suddenly your blog receives a lot of links in a few weeks. You need to manage your link building campaign well to avoid Google penalty.

I’m sure, all of us want to be successful bloggers, success with our blogging activities whatever our goal is. Creating a master plan and sticking with it is the key to success in blogging. Blogging is a long time commitment, it needs a lot of energy and time. Stay with your plans and get your self motivation. Key to blogging is traffic and traffic related to our promotion.

So besides being a great writer you need to create a promotion program or schedule to promote your blog. Creating good and useful content is a must but you still have to stick with your promotion plan to get more visibility and exposure on the blogoshpere. Even if you are a marketing genius, you need to spend some time and wait for a few weeks so your blog can get more visitors. Creating content is important but try to spend your time to promote your articles around the blogoshpere and wait for the result.

OK, guys you can share your opinion and start a discussion on this comment section and hope we can share useful tips to get our success in our blogging journey.

  • Great post… Blogging Success comes from hard work everyday.

    If you do that in time you will see some success.

    Patients and hard work.

  • Another reason that instant blogging is a hoax is that it takes quite a while to earn money from a brand new blog. You can’t get paid for ads because the traffic will be quite low and you can’t affiliate products because the trust between you and your readers isn’t there yet.

    • Its happened when I started my blogging journey, I found so many advertisement that said we can get success with our blog instantly, from AdSense, affiliate, etc and when I followed the links suddenly I’m in a sales page lol!
      Thanks for being my first commentator Jasmine.

  • Good article.

    It takes a long time to build up. 95% of the blogs indexed by Technorati have been abandoned (after the initial excitement, no new content for months).

    People need to have realistic goals and a plan for achieving them prior to starting with a blog.

  • Great point’s bro!

    Blogging is a long term and strategic venture.

    And like every serious venture it should be done with patience.

    There is no over night success!

    Nobody who starts a blog must begin with daily entries.

    For the beginning up to three posts per week can be an achievable goal.

    Blogging is a great way to establish you’re self as a trusted source and expert in your niche.
    To gain trust and credibility takes time and persistence.

    • Yes, we need to use all the resources to success with our blog and keep doing all our plan one at a time until we meet our goal.
      Thanks for sharing your opinion here Dragan.

  • Even affiliate marketing which is the easiest way to make money onlin also take time to achieve it. So do blogging. People always think blogging can make they rich in one night by just writing blog posts. But they don’t know behind the scene of blogging.

    • Agree with you Fazreen. Especially when we want to make money from our blog. Creating contents, promoting, get socialize, etc. All of them need some times and effort.

  • It’s funny Latief I was just at John Paul Aguiar blog reading a similar article demonstrating how hard it is to create a successful blog. It’s takes much time, dedicated and work to become a very popular and successful blogger.

    Everything you mention in this article requires dedication and commitment to your blog. We have to keep working hard and promoting. If we do that along with backlinks and good content we will do good over time.

    Personally I think blog commenting is the best free way to get successful when it comes to blogging.

    • May be John and I are twins bro, lol! But we have different style and he is an expert πŸ˜€

  • Talking about writing, blogging and success… I can say.. to be able to success at anything in this life, you should reach your goals, I can imagine a writer who write for his self and no body read for him, how he will succeed?!

    Blogging is kind of the same, so I don’t agree or follow people who blog for themselves! I mean how come?! what for?! there must be a better reason for blogging!

    So basically, any blogger need a plan, a gaol and as Dragan and John said in their comments…. Hard work and patience!

    .-= Rob Cubbon´s last blog ..Creating an interactive PDF eBook in InDesign =-.

  • There is no instant success to blogging. I tell people all the time that it’s not a field of dreams and just because you build it, they will not come. There is much that goes into a good blogging site and people don’t realize that it’s not magic that just happens, it takes actual work. The best thing that I can tell people about blogging for success is to blog about a niche that they are passionate about, and be consistent not only with the content, but the time frame that the posts occur in. Regular readers want to be have updates in a timely manner and if they are confused as to when and how often a post will happen, they will eventually tune out.

    • Blogging is a long term commitment and create a niche that we really love and passion about is a great start Sal.

  • This is so true that success doesn’t happen over night, and you constantly need to promote and build links. I think that anyone who claims that they made money within a few days that they are lying. The bloggers that I know personally who make a very comfortable full time living online had slow but steady growth.

  • I think link building is the most interesting part in blogging. I love to see the increase number of links to my blog everyday. Usually, i will leave comment in dofollow blog to get the backlink. I totally agree with you that there is no instant success in blogging. We need to put effort on it. Thanks for your sharing! πŸ™‚

  • In the short time I have been blogging I can already see my personal growth. That said, I’m an impatient person and can’t wait for the day my blog and my business aren’t that “new”.

    Thanks for the reminder that good things come to those who wait!
