Blogging is not just writing articles on your blog and sharing your vision with the world. It is a giant field and some of them are Event Blogging and Viral Blogging, which are the best known. Unlike writing blog articles about exact places or topics from time to time, it is good to write about the event because it is much easier to have a high position in Google. You may be thinking how much I can earn and my answer to your question is that it depends on several factors, but you can usually earn between $ 1000 and $ 10,000 per event. The important thing is that you plan from the beginning as on the page and outside the page, etc.
What is Event Blogging ?
Blogs specially designed and created by bloggers to rank on the first page of any search engine for any particular event of a year. The main goal here is to get targeted traffic so you have to put content and material related only to your niche / topic.
Event Blogging Benefits
google-visitorsThe good thing is that you do not have to work on your blog all year long; In fact, most people start their blogs three to six months before the event begins. The traffic will remain only for a few days (it can be a couple of days) and after that your blog may be totally dead. You earn a lot of money in a couple of days that many other bloggers dream all year long.
People earn as much as $ 10k per day, which is amazing because their investment is nothing compared to the profit. Some people do not like to work all year and they want income that can easily spend 365 days. Therefore, the way of working is the best for them, since they can work on special occasions and rest or travel during part of the year.
Down Sides of Event Blogging
One of the biggest drawbacks is that you need a high quality dedicated server to handle all the traffic. Obviously for this you need to invest money first because dedicated servers are not cheap, but you can opt for the hosting service that provides service upon request.
As traffic increases, your package will also increase dynamically, which means it will handle traffic while traveling. You must also stay online all the time until the end of the event because if something goes wrong (server crash, any script problem, add-on or problem with the topic) between the event you will lose all your effort and, therefore, money.

How to Choose an Event
Before choosing any event, you must first inquire about your monthly searches and your low competitors. Use Tools like Google Keyword Planner, KeywordTool to find keywords related to your event. Also, after choosing an event, you should know more about it and learn different topics about it.
Time is also very important because if you start your blog too early like 5 to 6 months before Google does not rank your site. Starting the blog one or two months before the event is the perfect moment and it also depends on your skills how early you classify them in the search engines.
Some of you may be thinking why I added events that are related to some particular areas of the world such as Diwali, Eid, Christmas, IPL (Indian Premier League), Elections, Test Results. The reason is that it is a myth that only a global event will bring more traffic. In fact, local events are much easier to guide and will eventually give you more traffic.
It’s Time for Keyword Research
Now that you have decided on which event you want to work on, it is time to search for keywords. You do not need to find high traffic keywords with high competition. Just choose long tail keywords and for this I will recommend Google Keyword Planner, Keyword Tool and, last but not least, Long Tail Pro.
Register Domain Name
Once you have chosen the main keyword that has the most searches, it is time to register the matching expropriated domain. You can search for the domain name in the search bar of any web server such as GoDaddy, NameCheap, etc. Sometimes you want the domain to be unavailable, try to mix it with other keywords or put “- (hyphen)” in between. Sometimes, the dot-com domain will not be available either, so you just have to try the point information, the US point. UU And the extensions point biz.
If you are a newbie and do not want to invest money in hosting, blogger.com is the best platform for you. Simply create a new blog through any Gmail account, upload the template and attach your blog to your domain name. It is much easier and your site will be online no matter how much traffic you receive.
On the other hand, if you have some experience, my suggestion is to buy your own Hostgator, Godaddy or Bluehost hosting. It will cost you some money, but eventually you will not regret your decision.
Now install WordPress with the help of Quick Install located in your cPanel. Choose any free theme that you like and upload it. Set your domain name servers to your hosting server and that’s it.
Content is King
Now go to the main part of any blog and that is content. Some people will say that they write short articles of low quality and some will say they write more than 3000 words. In my opinion, counting words does not matter as long as it provides solutions to people’s questions.
Google is no longer a child and you can not ignore the ranking factors by simply writing a 3000 word article. Although it is much easier to classify the blog of the event, but even if people leave your site too soon without doing anything like posting comments, sharing social networks, etc. Google will know that this site is not worth having in the first place.
Stay away from Keyword Stuffing
You should make sure to put your main keywords in Title, Description, Headers, and Subheads, but stay away from keyword stuffing. Also include long-tail keywords closely related to your primary keyword, as they will help you get organic traffic quickly.
The problem is that when the search engines begin to send you traffic, they will control each and every one of the activities on your site. They will record how much time they spend, the bounce rate of their blog and they will find the key solution or they will simply press the Back button in the browser.
A Picture is worth Thousand Words
Include as many images as you can but be sure to add photos related to your theme. Also include images that are not intellectual property and unique, as it will dramatically improve search traffic.
Team Work is Important
Not only in event blogs, but in SEO, if you are alone, you can not do anything or very little. Form a team of people who are close to you so you can share precious tricks with them.
Sometimes it’s good to do black hat SEO (Google does not recommend it), because it will produce results quickly, but this is all you need because your blog will not be active all year. Your need for traffic for only one or two days.
Search Engine Optimization(SEO)
This is the most important part of any blog because if you have a great website but the world does not know it is useless. To attract organic traffic first, you must attract traffic from social networks so you can see what people think about your site.
On Page SEO
The things that you do in your blog to modify them is for the search engines that are called On Page SEO. Also make sure that all the code in your pages is 100% correct and the speed of your blog page is over 90%.
Before doing anything, make sure you have done On Page SEO that includes page titles, body tags, at least three headers (H1, H2, and H3), keyword density (1 keyword per 200 words), Alt, and attribute of title in Images, Meta Description, Metatitles, Internal link, etc.
Off Page SEO
The main part in Off Page SEO is the building of links and can be done in many ways, including the white SEO hat and the black SEO hat.
Link Building(White Hat SEO)
Creating links through guest blogs, comments on blogs related to your niche, directory presentation, DMOZ directory, etc. They are considered in a legal way. The only problem is that it will take a lot of time and, sometimes, it is not useless in event blogs (because you do not have enough time).
Link Building(Black Hat SEO)
Now go to the other side of search engine optimization (SEO) and it is considered illegal and contrary to the Google Quality Guidelines. The creation of links through Private Blog Networks (PBN), Content Automation, Doorway Pages, Hidden Text or Links, Sneaky Redirects, Cloaking, Link Schemes, etc. They consider themselves Black Hat SEO.
Create Private Blog Network
From time to time, Google prohibits many private networks of blogs, but still it is the most effective way to achieve a fast organic traffic. The concept is that you must create a small network (at least 50 blogs) created in different IP addresses. You can start with expired domain names with high DA and PR, but keep in mind that that blog should not be banned by Google.
Of course, for different IP addresses you need to buy different hosting for all domains, which can cost between $ 50 and $ 100 per month, but it’s worth it. In addition, many PBN hosting providers give you the ability to host different IP domains. After that, publish unique articles each week with at least 1000 words in each blog.
Do not be greedy here and just get two links from each blog. Do not put the same anchor text and each and every link, vary and try to put long tail keywords in it. Spun content also works in this scenario, but if you hire someone for this job, it’s better for you.
Monetize Your Website
It’s time to set up your blog or website for different types of affiliate networks and Google Adsense. For affiliate links, you must join CPA networks to be able to promote products closely related to your blog’s niche.
Sometimes it’s not easy to join affiliate networks so you can join Amazon and ClickBank at any time. The way it works is that you must register to get an account and then look for the product related to your blog. Find your reference link and place it on your blog where people can see it. Now when even someone clicks on it and buys something from these sites, you will be paid.
For contextual ads you can join Google Adsense, but if you do not have your account, you can also go to the Infolinks and Media.net accounts. But if you want to maximize your profit, the Adsense account is mandatory. For high CTR, you must choose the theme that is highly optimized for Adsense. Also make sure you see your ads in the main place of your blog, where you will see the most people. In this way, not only will the CTR increase, but the page’s printing will also increase.
If you follow all my steps as I mentioned above, you can easily earn from $ 1000 to $ 10K for an event. Do not believe in me, read well this inspirational story of M Tanveer Nandla who won half a million rupees in 24 hours. So, if you do not achieve it for the first time, do not be disappointed and all your knowledge will help you in your next event blogging project. In the online world, only those successful people who experience all the time, not the people who want results in no time.
