We all know that with event blogging we can earn thousands of dollars within a short time. But this happens only if we able to rank in top 3 or 5 positions of Google for our main keyword.
In this article…
…I am going to explain you my complete case study how I ranked my even blog for my main keywords and some secondary keywords on top 3 positions of Google.
My Complete Case Study on How I Ranked my Event Blog
Let me give you an overview, What I am going to discuss here.
- Which domain have I purchased?
- Which Blogging Platform I have used?
- How many articles have I written?
- How have I done the On-Page SEO?
- Techniques I have used for Off-Page SEO
Before I explain these points step by step, let me show you the screenshots on how well I ranked on Google.
The keywords on which I have worked have moderate competition. And you also have to choose such keywords which have low to moderate competition with high search volume.
My Main keyword was Ramadan Wishes.
In the screenshot, you can clearly see that my site is on top 3 in Google.
Similarly, another keyword was Ramadan Wishes 2018.
Here you can also see in the screenshot that my site is at position 1 on Google for this keyword.
Now, after seeing my success you want to read my article further as now you know that I am not lying. And trust me, I am going to tell you exactly what I have done so you can also start your own event blog and rank it on Google.
Let’s come to the point now.
Which Domain have I Purchased?
For an event blog, exact matched domain (EMD) is a must. And I have done the same, my main keyword was Ramadan Wishes and I have bought a domain,
You can purchase any domain like .com, .info, .net, .in, .pk etc. But try to purchase an EMD.
Which Blogging Platform have I used?
No doubt WordPress is the best blogging platform for SEO point of view and I have used it. But you can also use the BlogSpot as here you don’t have to pay for hosting.
If you are new in this field and also have a funding problem, then I recommend you choose BlogSpot.
How many Articles have I Written?
Those who say that to rank an event blog daily article writing is a must. I must say they don’t have any knowledge of SEO.
Because I have written hardly 5 to 6 articles of 600+ words each and I have updated my blog weekly and not daily.
One more misconception, people or I must say so-called SEO Experts say that for event bog we can post spun or copied content. This is not true, as this will not help you in any way. You must write unique and appealing content.
How have I done the On-Page SEO?
Let me clear you one thing…
…the SEO (both on and off-page) for an event or short-term blog is different from a long-term blog. Always keep this in mind!
Here the tricky part is,
You must select a single page theme as you want to rank your homepage. In WordPress, there are many free single page themes are available, you can select anyone.
After picking the theme I have done the following.
As I have ranked my homepage on Google, I have added my main Keyword in,
- H1 Heading
- H2 Heading
- H3 Heading
- 3 to 5 times in the article
I know that it is keyword stuffing, but as I have already mentioned that SEO for short and long-term blog is totally different.
For short-term blogs, if we don’t use some black hat techniques we can’t rank quickly in Google.
Techniques I have used for the Off-Page SEO
Off-Page SEO carries more than 50% weight in ranking the event blogs. Here I am going to show you step by step, how and how many backlinks I have built.
Let me clear you something,
Do not build all the backlinks in a single or couple of days instead work at a natural pace. Start building backlinks after almost 10 to 15 days of creating the blog.
I have used following techniques.
I have built almost 50 to 60 dofollow comment backlinks. I have used different variations of Anchor Texts.
- Naked URL
- Main Keywords
- Secondary Keywords
- Brand Names
I haven’t built these backlinks to just the homepage. About 10 to 15 links were built to the inner pages also.
Here with forum posting, I mean real posting and no profile backlinks. I have built 3 to 5 niche related forum backlinks on different forums.
Here I have used only the naked URL of my Homepage.
I have bought around 6 PBN links with exact match anchor text. I have bought them from SEOClerks at a very cheap price.
My main buyer was this.
One more thing, always provide your own content. I highly recommend writing unique articles also for PBNs as this will help you more in achieving higher rankings than duplicate or low-quality content.
I have bought a single guest post again with exact match anchor text from this guy. He is the best and this single guest post has given me a real boost in rankings.
Social Bookmarking is also very important as from here you will get nofollow links which are also very important for the natural backlink profile.
I have built around 10-15 Nofollow Social Bookmarking Backlinks all with different titles and descriptions. Here I have done social bookmarking to some of my inner pages also.
Lastly, I have also given my homepage some social signals. The main sites which I have used are:
Wrapping it Up!
Now, you have a clear overview of my case study on how I rank my event blog in short time. My main keyword had moderate competition and if you are also trying to rank a low or moderate competition keyword you can follow my strategy.
But if your keyword has somewhat high competition then you must increase the number of backlinks to almost double.
