Let us now discuss all these points one by one.
Step 1 – Decide Your Blogging Goal
Whenever you decide to create a blog, first of all, you should know what is your purpose behind creating a blog. Because on the basis of Blog Goal you will get achievement from the blog.
By the way, the answer of most people would be to earn money, which is also true, I also created a blog to earn money.
But the goals of many people can be different, someone creates a blog to gain popularity, someone for his passion, or someone creates a blog to increase his business.
Similarly, there are many types of blogs that have different purposes. The purpose of creating a blog determines how much time you have to devote to your blog in a day.
Step 2 – Decide Your Blogging Niche
Niche is a category or a topic on which blogging is done. For example, if a blog gives information about computers, then its Niche is computers. Similarly, there are many niches in which blogs are built.
Like Health, Wealth, Relationship, and Spirituality. These four are broad niches, you have to select them by narrowing them down. Some Blog Niche are as follows –
- Health – Weight loss, fitness, yoga, weight gain, medicines, etc.
- Wealth – Earning Money Online, Investment, Business Idea, Share Market, Job Portal, etc.
- Relationship – Dating, Shaadi – Marriage, Love Quotes, etc.
- Spirituality – Meditation, Psychology, Astrology, Self-improvement, etc.
Choosing a niche is the most important part of blogging, only after choosing a niche do you have to take further steps. Many people may have a problem choosing a niche.
Therefore, in the beginning, according to your interest, decide your niche. So that you do not feel bored writing articles, and you can create unlimited content.
Step 3 – Do Keyword Research
Keywords are very important to bring traffic to any blog. Suppose you have decided Niche, now if people are not searching about that Niche on the internet, will traffic come to your blog? No no.
You will be able to know only through keyword research whether people are searching on the internet for the query related to that niche or not. That’s why keyword research is very important in blogging.
After Niche Selection in the very beginning, you have to find 100 Low Competition Keywords of your niche and make a list of them. So that you do not have to do keyword research again and again to write articles.
There are many free keyword research tools available on the internet, through which you can find keywords.
If you have the budget then you can also use Paid Tool like SEMrush, and Ahrefs to do keyword research.
Step 4 – Select Platform for Blogging
When you have a list of 100 keywords related to your niche, then it is necessary to have a platform to create a blog. By the way, there are many CMS platforms online where you can do blogging.
But the most used platforms are Blogger and WordPress. If you want to get quick success then you can create your blog on WordPress. Because here you get many plugins and themes, through which you can give a very attractive look to your blog.
Although you will have to spend a little bit on hosting and domain to create a WordPress blog, if you have the budget then you must make your blog on WordPress. Otherwise, you can create a blog on Blogger for free.
Step 5 – Buy a Domain and hosting
The domain is the name of your blog, your blog is identified on the Internet only by the domain name. Like google.com, yahoo.com. Similarly, you have to keep the name of your blog.
In the Internet world, the name of the website is called the domain name. There are many websites on the internet from where you can buy domains, such as – Godaddy, Bigrock, Namecheap, etc.
By the way, if you create your blog on Blogger, then you get a free subdomain which is blogspot.com. But if you want to make a professional blog then you must buy the domain. So that in the future your blog can become a brand.
But if you create your blog on WordPress, then you also need hosting along with the domain name. Hosting is an online space where all the content of your blog is stored and your website is live.
While creating a blog on WordPress, keep one thing in mind you should buy hosting only from a good company. If you buy hosting for 10 – 20 rupees per month for cheap, then it has a very negative effect on your blog.
To buy the best and most good speed hosting, you can buy hosting from HostArmada. If you buy hosting from a company like HostArmada, then you get a top-level domain absolutely free for 1 year. HostArmada is a popular hosting provider that WordPress itself recommends.
If you do not have the budget, then my suggestion is that you make your blog on Blogger itself, do not be in the trap of cheap hosting.
Step 6 – Setup the Blog
After buying a domain and hosting, the next step comes that you have to set up a blog.
If your blog is on Blogger, then you set up the blog in the following way –
- Connect Domain.
- Apply a good theme to the blog and customize it.
- Do basic SEO setting of the blog.
- Create all required pages
I have told you the whole process of creating a blog on Blogger in this blog of mine. You can complete the setup by creating a free blog on Blogger by reading the articles of the category of the blogger in my blog.
If you are creating your blog on WordPress, then set up the blog as follows –
- Connect domain and hosting together.
- Install WordPress
- Install the plugin required for the blog
- Customize by applying a good theme
- Create all required pages
In this way, you have to set up a blog on blogger and WordPress.
Step 7 – Tell Google about the blog
After creating a blog, you also have to tell Google that I have also created a blog. For this, Google has created a tool called Google Search Console (GSC), where you have to submit your blog.
When you submit your blog to Google Search Console, only then Google crawlers are able to crawl and index your blog. When your blog is indexed in Google, then Google gives you a ranking on the search engine result page.
Step 8 – Start writing articles on the blog
After setting up the blog and submitting the blog to Google Search Console, you have to start writing articles regularly on your blog. Publish the article on the blog on a schedule. If you always publish one article then regularly publish 1 article daily.
Do not do this at all that after publishing an article you are not posting any article for 1 – 2 months. You cannot get success in blogging unless there is continuity in your work.

Step 9 – Write an article that will rank on Google
SEO of the blog is very important for any blog post to be ranked on Google. SEO is a process by which any blog can be ranked on the top page of search engines.
Always write SEO-friendly articles on the blog, because when your article is SEO friendly only then it will be able to rank on the first page of Google.
Very few users go to the second – third page of Google, due to which the website that ranks on these pages does not get traffic.
That is why it is necessary to get the blog post ranked on the first page of Google. Only an SEO-friendly article is likely to rank on the first page of Google.
Along with On-Page SEO, it is also very important to do Technical SEO. In the beginning, you can do Technical SEO keeping the following points in mind.
- Install SSL Certificate
- Create Sitemap
- Create Robots.txt File
- Add Canonical Tag to Blog
Step 10 – Promote the blog
After publishing an SEO-friendly article, it is time to promote the blog so that more and more people can know about your blog. Off-Page, SEO is used to promote blogs. You can promote your blog in the following way –
- Sharing articles on social media
- Create High-Quality Backlink for the Blog
- Guest Posting
- By answering questions on the Forum website
- YouTube Channel.
Step 11 – Start earning money by monetizing
After working for 5-6 months on all the above-mentioned processes, it is time to monetize the blog and earn money from the blog. You can start earning money by monetizing a blog through Google AdSense, Affiliate Marketing, or other ad networks.
