As a blogger, you have got a business. Blogging is a long time or rather a lifetime investment. How far are you willing to go with blogging? your answer to this question determines your success or failing potential in the biosphere.
Starting a blog these days with the mindset of receiving cheque in few months to come is a mere fiction and can rarely be possible. If you are lucky, your blog could earn you huge money within a short time than the already existing blogs. However, it is not just about being lucky, it has to do with your uniqueness, frequency in publishing and traffic growing strength.
The reason you have got a business is that time consumption to do research on contents, evaluate how to come out differently from others, how your content can be the solution online information seekers are looking for in search engines, and how good are you going to be in that topic of discussion, you still have other points to consider.
As a modern blogger without any external financial inflow, it advisable to concentrate in running your blog as a part-time job. You can be spending some hours to prepare quality content and revise it, then publish. This method takes time but it ensures you don’t get disappointed.
If you built your blog without a proper SEO consideration like loading speed, Geo-targeting, Keyword domain name, and Good website appearance for good user experience, and other SEO factors, your SEO will suffer a lot.
Believe it or not, your SEO determines how much you can make from the CPC advertisers like Goggle AdSense and others. Cost per click (CPC) advertisers only pay for unique clicks.

There are many traffic sources to every website example social media channels, email newsletter, referrals, external links, SEO, and news feed, etc. among all these traffic sources, the SEO stands to be the most unique source of traffic.
The truth about SEO is that users coming from Search engines like goggle search are looking for information and in that case are willing to click any advert relating to what they are looking for in your website.
For example, you wrote about latest SUV Cars in the year 2020 and a user in search engine wants to know the latest SUV car in the year 2020 probably to buy or for information purpose.
Consequently, the user then types “Latest SUV car 2020” in the Search Engine form and click SEARCH, within a second your website showed up with headline that says “Latest suv cars in the year 2020” definitely the user will click your headline to read your content.
In that process the user will land on your website, while reading your post a banner advert showed up from a particular company showing pictures of their 2020 models of SUVs, definitely the user will leave your website and following the advert for more information.
That is the magic behind SEO as being your money. If your major traffics are coming from Search Engines you can make $2 per every 600 page views than a website with 2000 page views coming from Social media pages.
