Wordpress.com Vs Wordpress.org



Are you aware that Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org are different platforms?

Wordpress.com vs Wordpress.org

I believe many of us are confused in answering this question. But the reality is that both are different. Probably most of the web developers know the difference between these two platforms. But many of the beginners are not aware and end up choosing the wrong platform.

My main aim besides sharing this post is to highlight the basic differences between Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org, for your better understanding.

I want you to choose the right platform as per your requirements. Because choosing a right platform is very necessary for success. So don't get confused and just spend a few minutes of your time to understand the basic differences.

Let's me first introduce Wordpress.org, which is an open-source content management platform. It is free and very powerful platform for building a blog or a site. With Wordpress.org you can create a blog or website which is totally yours and is not dependent on anyone. You are free to edit, change or update anything on your site.

What is Wordpress.com

You just need to purchase a domain name and web hosting, where you can host your website files. In simple words, if you use this platform then you are the owner of your property. You are not dependent on any website builder or server. You have the full control and no one can turn off your site for any reasons.

Moreover, the biggest advantage that a Wordpress.org user gets is the ease to use the large number of plugins and templates. It has thousands of attractive and professional looking templates to enhance user experience. Also the plugins help to optimize your site and add additional functionalities.

So, if you are really serious to earn money from your blog or website and build your career then go for Wordpress.org platform. Its unique, free, reliable, powerful and secure platform.

Now lets discuss about Wordpress.com platform

Wordpress.com is similar to the other online website building platforms like Wix, Weebly, Google Sites, Webnode, Yola etc where you don't need to purchase a hosting platform. You can choose from the paid plans or continue with a free plan as well. In the free plan you get a sub domain (www.mywebsitename.wordpress.com).

What is Wordpress.com ?

There are several limitations in Wordpress.com like unavailability of plugins, WordPress ads, cannot add Google analytics, templates etc. You get these features after upgrading your plan. However these features are available for free in Wordpress.org platform.

So in my opinion simply go for Wordpress.org as it is reliable in the long run. You can choose Bluehost for hosting as it fully compatible with WordPress and the installation is also very simple and fast.

There are hosting plans which are very reasonable and you also get a free domain name along with hosting.

The overall summary of this post is that Wordpress.org is more powerful, robust and reliable platform to choose. Because self hosted platforms are more reliable and you don't have the fear of loosing your data. Your data is completely safe and secure. Because loosing data is really a very bad experience.
Just think you have created a blog with good number of posts and one day the blog is shut down without your knowledge. How dis-heartening would you feel then. So its always better to choose the best option.

So these were the basic differences between Wordpress.org and Wordpress.com platforms. I will share with you how to build a blog on self-hosted WordPress in my next post.

7 Qualities of a Great Blogger


Do you want to become a successful blogger? Do you want people all around the world to know you and your blog? Want to take your blog from bottom to high level?

Well if I ask the above question to a blogger, he wont say "NO".

Every blogger has an ambition to take his blog to success. But the question which comes to his mind is "HOW".

7 Qualities of a great blogger

So, in this post we will discuss about the most essential skills or qualities required for becoming a successful blogger.

There are several skills required to become successful in this competitive world. There is a huge competition going on in each and every sector. Everyone is busy in marketing and promoting his brand or services through digital media. Everyone wants to become the number one.

So, If you are also coming up with a new business idea then you need to be different from the crowd. Otherwise no one will identify you.

When it comes to blogging, there is a big competition here as well. There are millions and millions of blogs published. But do all of them get good number of visitors. The answer would be NO.

Most of them struggle to drive visitors to their blog and at last quit blogging. If you search on Google you will find that most of the blogs haven't been updated since years. This shows that the blogger has stopped adding new posts and updating his blog.

Like other jobs, blogging also requires some skills and qualities. So in this post I will share those skills which are necessary. You need to work on these if you want to succeed and make your career in blogging. No one can just learn by reading on internet. You need to experiment and apply those in your day-to-day practice to build your skills.

Now, lets discuss about the 7 skills which are required for becoming a successful blogger.

1) Content Writing Skills: Content plays a vital role in the success of a blog. It is the most important ingredient, which adds value to a blog.

So its very important to write engaging and quality content which compels a user to stay on your blog and re-visit again. Content improves page ranking and drives traffic to your blog. We have been talking about the importance of content in many of our posts.

The reason why I am asking to focus on content is because its the pillar of your blog. So you need to work on this sincerely
.
Your writing skill should be simply and easy to understand. There shouldn't be any spelling or grammatical mistakes in your content because it will create a bad impression in your users mind. There are many online and offline tools which rectify the grammatical mistakes automatically. So use these tools if required.

Build your writing skills and knowledge about a topic by reading more and more articles online.
Try to write if you are speaking to someone personally. Write in an interactive manners so that users love reading your blog.

2) Patience and Strong Will-Power: Patience is very necessary for a blogger. Many bloggers stop blogging due to the reason of less visitors.

But you need to understand that huge visitors won't come to your blog in just a fortnight. You need to be patient and keep on working on your blog.

So don't quit and keep patience. If you have worked with sincerity and written quality and rich posts, then someday your work will be noticed.

Strong will-power is also very necessary for a blogger. If you are determined that you will make a career in blogging, then you will definitely get success.

3) Image Editing Skills: Embedding images or graphics in a blog is necessary and helps in improving page rankings.

If you have nice pictures in your blog, then users will enjoy reading. The reason is because pictures speak more than words.

So its very essential to learn how to edit, format or re-size a picture. You don't need to be an expert of Photoshop or any other image editing software. There are lot of online tools which ease the job of editing images. You just need to learn how to use it.

4) Social Media Understanding & Marketing Skills: As we all know that social networking is a great platform for marketing our blog or brand. Since there are millions of users in social networking sites, so its very important to understand the way of promoting on this platform.

So it is very essential to have knowledge of these sites and how to promote. You should have complete idea of the dos and don'ts.

Moreover it is very necessary to have good selling skills to promote your blog and build relations. Most of the bloggers fail due to their weak strategies and planning. So proper planning and good marketing skills are required for becoming a successful blogger.

Connect with influencers and also try to read more and more articles to gain knowledge.

5) CSS and HTML Knowledge: Knowing the basics of CSS and HTML programming language is necessary for a blog.

I understand its very difficult for a person from a non-technical background to learn CSS and HTML. But you just need to know the basics.

Most of the online builders like WordPress or Blogger doesn't require an extensive use of HTML or CSS. But still you need to be aware of these programming languages as you might need it sometimes.
For guidance you can check HTML or CSS related tutorials on the internet. I believe this will help you out.

6) Passion: A blogger needs to be passionate for writing. If you are not passionate, then this is not the appropriate sector for you.

A blogger never gets demotivated and struggles in odd situation as well. So, you need to be self-motivated and keep on writing and sharing your views.

7) Networking: Just writing good and sharing quality posts is not sufficient. You need to build a network with other bloggers.

Comment on the posts of other bloggers and try to build relationships. Do guest posting and learn new things from the other successful bloggers.

This will really help you to promote your blog and become successful.


So, try to work on these skills as these are very essential for becoming a professional and successful blogger. Its good if you already have then. If you don't have, then don't worry. Read books and refer to online articles. I hope this will help you out because no one develops these skills suddenly, as it builds through regular blogging experience.

Hope this article helps you out. Kindly share your comments.

Once you have created your blog and written good and useful posts, the next job is to promote it. Promoting a blog and driving targeted audiences require patience and hard work. Friends, Its not so easy.

How to increase traffic to a blog?

One of the most important criteria is the content. The content of your blog should be very appealing and original. If you want quality and regular visitors to your blog then first start working on the content of your blog.

Content plays a great role in increasing your Google page rankings because Google loves new and fresh quality content. Also update your blog regularly and keep adding new articles and posts.

Keep in mind that don't add posts just to increase the number of posts on your blog. Write meaningful and lengthy content posts which will be help you to increase page ranking on Google or other search engines. Search for hot and interesting topics on internet and write posts related to them. The reason why I am asking you to focus on content is because content is the only key factor which which decide the traffic to your blog through search engines.

Once your content is ready, you can go ahead and look for marketing your blog. But if your content is not compelling then users might come to your blog but won't like to visit again. So friends content is the major driver for traffic to a blog or website. Don't mind but what so ever is the topic of your blog, if you don't present it properly then it might be of no use to readers.

I would advice you to try something different and post topics which are usually searched on the internet. Avoid posting content which is similar to the previous posts on your blog, as your visitors might get bored and may switch off to some other blog or site. So before writing it is better to understand your target audience and share answers to the mostly asked questions.

If you have rich content, you can get high traffic to your blog. Moreover if you are getting organic traffic to your blog, there are high chances of conversion from these visitors. The reason why I am saying this is because organic traffic comes from search engines and there is a high possibility of conversion of these visitors to subscribers or customers. 

There are many ways to promote your blog and drive targeted audiences. I will just share 10 ways by which you can promote your blog and I am sure this will work for you.

Get Google Adsense Account Approved Easily



100% Guaranteed Adsense Approval


Tips for getting Google Adsense account approved

Google Adsense is the most preferred advertising program for publishers. If you search for Adsense alternatives on the internet you will find many of them. But Google Adsense is the best and the highest paying program. It is very reliable and the payout is on time. This is the only reason why publishers aspire for an Adsense account to monetize from their website or blog.

It's not bad to think of earning money from your blog or website once its ready. You won't earn too much from a newly built site but if you work hard on the content, at least your domain and hosting charges will be covered. As I have discussed in my previous blogs that earning money online is not so easy. So you need to be patient and just work with full honesty on your site or blog.


Remember, you can't achieve success by mere hard work. Both hard work and smart work is required to become successful in this world of competitions. Read blogs of the top bloggers and learn how they got success. Read the success stories of top publishers and bloggers. Trust me, its really very motivating and inspiring. You will come to learn many things from them.

Now, let me share my story with you. When I built my first website I was not aware of Google Adsense program. So frankly speaking I didn't built the site as per Google Adsense guidelines. When I submitted the application to Adsense, they rejected it. I was really disheartened when I saw  the rejection mail from Google. But that day I learnt something that you should "never build, just to build". The reason for my application rejection was that I didn't have a pre-set goal of joining Adsense program in my mind before creating my site.


Get Google Adsense account approved

But friends it's never late. I made my mind that I will get Google's approval in my next try because I had a great desire of getting an Adsense account. It was not just because of the desire of earning money from my site but to get success after my failure. When I read the Adsense terms and conditions I came to know that a domain name needs to be atleast 6 months old for getting approved. I registered a domain name on 31st July 2018. And I got Adsense approval on 7th September 2018.


Approved Adsense account


Now you would be eager to know how did I get approval in just 1 month and 8 days. Friends I didn't apply any tricks. I just posted 20 quality blog posts with original content. I researched for interesting topics on the internet and wrote when I was free. And this worked. I am sure this will work for you as well. I am really passionate for writing and sharing.

In my earlier posts I have shared some important guidelines for getting an Adsense application approved. But here I will just highlight a few important points which will help you out. Friends always adhere to these facts before applying for Adsense program.

Firstly, purchase a custom domain name as www.yoursitename.com and please don't go for a free one. I have discussed the disadvantages of a free domain name in my previous blog posts. The reason why I am saying this is that a free domain name is not reliable and there might be downtime. You do not have the full control to your site on a free hosting or domain name. Google strictly advises publishers to have a custom domain name before applying for Adsense.

The second and the most important factor is Content. The content on your site or blog should be meaningful and useful for others. Read the complete Adsense terms and conditions related to content before applying. If you are a blogger create at least 20 quality posts and then apply. Keep the navigation simple and easy to understand.

Thirdly, its mandatory to have Contact Us, About, Privacy policy and Sitemap pages on your website or blog.



This creates a trust in the mind of your users. So just work on these and apply for Adsense program. Google will definitely approve your application if you have adhered to the guidelines properly.

If Google rejects your application then don't worry, just work on the rejection points and re-apply. I hope this blog helps you out. Feel free to get in touch if you have any queries or need some guidance before applying for Adsense. I would really love to hear from you. You can also post your comments below.

Is Making Money Online Easy


Online money is a way of earning money through blogging, website, affiliate network or e-commerce. Online work or business has a biggest advantage of working from the home. You are your own boss and no need to work under anyone.

You can earn money just by working from your home.

Making money online



BUT IS IT SO EASY??

Definitely not!! It's not so easy as it looks to be. When you search for "Earn money online" on Google you will find hundreds of websites who guarantee for earning money online in a few hours. But friends it's not the truth. Earning money online has never been easy. If it was so easy then most of the people would have quit their jobs in order to earn from home.

It's really very difficult to find a genuine way of earning money online.

Earning money online requires patience, hard work and a strong willpower. If you want to earn money quickly then friends this is not the right platform for you. You can search for some other way of earning money.  Online money comes to only those people who have devoted their time and have worked with patience. If you are in a hurry to earn right from the beginning you won't land up anywhere. So friends be patient and just work on your blog or website with complete dedication at the beginning.

Its really not bad to think about earning money from your blog or website. But first you need to make sure if your blog or website qualifies and is eligible for that.

Ask a few questions yourself.

1) Does it have enough quality and useful content which will be liked by users ?

2) Does it have content which will compel users to re-visit my blog or website?

3) Is my blog or website mobile-friendly and optimized for faster response.

4) Do I update my website or blog regularly for visitors retention.

Friends if you have really worked hard on these points then you are on the right track. Your website or blog is eligible to earn money. I have shared on how to earn money from your website or blog through Google Adsense in my previous posts. Check my blog on Google Adsense here. Google Adsense is one of the most genuine ways of monetizing from your blog or website.

There are many Google Adsense alternatives but Google pays higher than any other advertising networks. But it's not so easy to get Google Adsense approval. Your blog or website needs to strictly adhere to the Adsense terms and conditions. I have seen websites which are getting good traffic but still Adsense is not approving their application. 

Many people build a website or blog just for fun and don't follow proper guidelines while designing. Later on when they apply for Adsense to earn money, their application is rejected. Hence they never get approved by Google Adsense.

There are many websites who guarantee Adsense approval in a few hours or within few days. But believe me it's not correct. Google takes a day or sometimes even more time to review and approve an application. Moreover if you once improve and rectify the points on which Adsense had rejected your website you could get your application approved next time. So always believe in yourself.

As I have already said that making money online is not very easy but if you have a passion of writing and sharing your views you can create a blog. And once your blog  has minimum 15-20 quality posts you can apply for Adsense.

Moreover you can also earn money by joining affiliate network. You need to redirect visitors from your blog or website to the site whose affiliate you are. And once a user purchases or signs-up you get paid. But friends it's not so easy. You can only earn from affiliate marketing if your blog or site is getting good traffic. It needs a lot of hard work to drive traffic to your website or blog. And no one can drive traffic in a fortnight.

Few qualities and skills that you should have to earn money online are:

  • Patience
  • Good Reading and Writing skills
  • Basic Technical Knowledge
  • SEO Knowledge
  • Social Networking and Online Marketing skills

So just don't think about earning money at the beginning. First add good quality posts and work on driving visitors. And once you have a good number of visitors to your website or blog you will identity a numbers of ways to monetize from your site.
