So here's a brief description on how I am earning from a blog which was one-time work three years ago and will continue to earn this year too.
This tutorial is not for those people who consider EVENT BLOGGING as spamming.
I've been talking about Targeting Tier 1 countries but in such cases, I target India and India only.
Because people here search for such words.
Okay so lets start.
3 Years ago I made an event blog, on the topic "Ganesh Chaturthi".
Then I downloaded a simple theme which is obviously free.
And then comes in Google images.
1. I scraped (manually , I wasn't knowing bout bots ) about 1500 images.
2. Then I got some messages (Texts) about wishing Ganesh Chaturthi etc.
3. Then it was time for KW research, So to be true I was not knowing much about kw researching, but as a noob searched some sources like uber suggest and others.
Next year a little modification was required because of improper kw research and results were better too.
Although you can refer @noah's guide about how to get traffic and use the kw technique to find some.
Also Look for LSI kw's, They are giving me good results.
4. Time for posts, So the posts were obviously according to the kw. But here are some posts:
a) Happy Ganesh Chaturthi images and messages in Marathi 2014.
b) Happy Ganesh Chaturthi images and messages in Gujarati 2014.
c) 2014 Best Ganesh Chaturthi poems Latest.
d) Download Ganesh Chaturthi images and videos 2014.
Well, You don't have to post the same, you may get lost in google jungle.
Now ranking is surely difficult but you can always comment
For monetization Go for adsense and other networks.
Also don't expect a lot, but if you work a lot then you can.
For first year I earned $23, Second year around $120 and last year $156. And its more than enough because you aren't really working on it. Now lets see what happens this year, Getting Realtime.
Hope this can be useful
