How I Started Poetry Blog ( UrduShayari.Info )

 


How Do I Started UrduShayari.Info 


An year ago I was searching flippa to buy a website. I came across a website which was up for sale. I opened it and check it's URL and price . Many bloggers were taking interest to buy this website. Website was related to Hindi Shayari. I opened up the link in the browser; it was beautiful image poetry website with very useful content.  While reading that poetry blog, as blogger an idea popped up in my mind. Asif you can start this kind of Website. Up to 3 days I analyzed that website through all the website tools (which I know). While analyzing to this website, I came to know that Website is built on Wordpress and using Generatpress Theme Which is an awesome Wordpress theme. The site was earning 300 dollars per month. I will disclose that website in last of this post and will tell you the strategies to start your own blog. Keep Reading. 


Then I made my mind that I will start blog like this but problem was that I don't know Hindi Language. So I decided to start an Urdu Shayari blog.  How to design poetry images, from where I can download images for free, which font is best? What are the best graphic designing tools? These all questions are still worrying me. But I was committed.

I launched urdushayari.blogspot.com on blogger.com a free blogging platform searched and downloaded a free blogger theme (sora viral from soratemplates). Uploaded on my blog and did basic Setting.  I checked different Hindi and Urdu Shayari websites to set keywords in title and description tags to make my blog SEO friendly.

Next day I went to Godaddy to buy a Domain Name for my poetry blog.  I searched for “Urdu Shayari". As I was expected, all top level extensions (.com, .net and .org ) were taken.  Luckily .Info was available but whether I go for this extension are not, I was confused. I thought, I must go for another poetry related keyword and check domain availability. Before this, I did little search on .info extension and found that there are many websites that are running successfully on the internet using this extension. So I decided to buy UrduShayari.Info. Registered and filled up the Godaddy form and did payment, Well It cost me only 500 Pakistani rps for the first year.   I went to blogger and setup my new bought domain and simply redirect urdushayari.blogspot.com to urdushayari.info. For 1 month I continue to post on my blog. I posted some great poetry images posts like 2 lines urdu shayari, sad shayari, Love Shayari and Motivational shayari


Now my poetry site was ready to publish first post. I selected few Shayar to post. But I mentioned, I have zero experience of image editing or graphic designing.  I did little search on Google and watched YouTube tutorials. I found canva, a great online graphic designing tool. I downloaded few images from unsplash.com and tried to edit on canva . They were not allowing Urdu related fonts like jameel noori nastaleeq ) so It was a bad experience. Still I posted on my blog as I have no other option. Urdu Shayari was my first post.  On the other hand, I kept my search on Google for good photo editing tool. I found Pixteller.com an awesome online photo editing tool and luckily it was allowing my own fonts. I added Jameel Noori Nastaleeq font on it and make poetry images with beautiful Urdu text for Shayari posts.  I also create shayri images on MS Paint. It is good tool to design simple shairi images and quotes. Remember there are many other online graphic tools which you can use (just search). I want to share pixlab, a great free app to design and edit any image. 


What is Google Webmaster Tools?


Google webmaster tool is great tool to analyze your website behavior in search engine. I also use this tool to analyze my website. Google started Indexing and crawling my pages and posts in search engine. 300 impressions were counting per day with very few clicks. Meanwhile I kept posting Urdu Shayari of different poets like Allama Iqbal, Ahmad Faraz , Parveen Shakir, Gulzar and Ghalib.


Now Almost 1 year is passed and my site is getting 50k impression for images and 17k impressions for web. .300 unique organic visitors and almost 1000 page views per day. Yes per day. More than 4 thousand keywords are in top searches of Google. Most of visitors are coming from Pakistan and India. Very few are from USA, Saudi Arab, Dubai, Uk and other countries.  all stats are incredible. Best thing is that stats are growing day by day.

My SEO Strategies: 


SEO is Stand for Search Engine Optimization. This is method through which you rank your website in search engines like Google, Bing etc. SEO has two main types one is called off page SEO and other is ON Page SEO. In off page SEO you link you website to other authority websites related to your niche and in on page you present your content in such way that search engine understand about your content and crawl it and rank it.

I have done zero off page SEO for my blog but focus on page SEO techniques. I put keywords in title, description, image alt and other required places quite nicely. Internal linking is another important factor of ON Page SEO, I frequently link my previous posts to new posts. Internal linking not only best for Users experience but it also plays crucial role in Search Engine Ranking.  50k impressions are the proof. 


Social Marketing


Sharing your publish content on social media is another important factor to rank your website in search engine and get traffic. I am lacking in this area too. I have only created Facebook page and share my publish post on fb/urdushayari.info. No other social media profile for my website. I must focus on it.


Monetization of my blog


Now I am using Google AdSense for the monetization of my blog. Earning is low but I am Satisfied.  I have earned 10 dollars from Google AdSense in last two months. I have also sold a backlink to sadshayari.com for 14 dollars. 


How You Can Start Poetry Blog: 


If you are interested to start a blog, you can, it is very easy.

For creating content go to unsplash.com to download free stock images then go to pixteller.com, download your own font (like jameel noori nastaleeq in case your want to start Urdu poetry blog.
