This is Kulwant Nagi from Bloggingcage.com, I came here to discuss with you some essential blogging stuff and I want you to ask “Do you have some important pages on your blog?”
Finally, you own a blog and it is looking good.
Having a blog & having a good blog are completely different from each other and the journey starts with having a blog only.
The growth of blogs is on its peak. 6.7 million people are doing blogging on the daily basis, but only 14% of the bloggers in the world earn a salary through blogging where $24,000 is the average annual earning of a blogger.
People are trying display ads, affiliate marketing, SEO, paid posts and some other blog monetization methods to earn for their living.
But the question is; Does you blog good enough to convert readers into buyers?
Do you have some important pages on your blog?
Have you ever thought about having such pages on your blog?
You might be having few pages on your blog which I am going to discuss here but not all of them.
PS: If you have all of the important pages of a blog which am gonna discuss, then give a pat on your back. 🙂
