Hey Guys! Happy Holi !! This time Holi was the great reason for me to celebrate hard. Beside enjoying and playing colors on Holi. I was also making money. On first week of March, me and Shubham decide to work on Holi niche blog. Then we bought the domain Holisongs.in. Worked around 5 days on it, in writing post and link building. And then traffic start raining on our blog and we made 500$ while celebrating Holi.
It was the first time we were working on a Event based niche blog. We just started it for gaining experience and knowledge. But when traffic start flowing on our blog, we realize that we can make good money out of it.
On 1st March Imran bro in an hangout told me to start a event blog on Holi. Then i researched on Google Keyword Planner and found keyword holi songs, having good search and low competition. As Holi is Indian festival and its main search is from India only. So i bought the domain Holisongs.in to geo target it on India.
Our working strategy
As only few days were left for the event. So Shubham and me decide to divide the work. I started writing post and Shubham was working on designing and On Page SEO. And thanks to Imran bro, who was guiding us time to time.
Firstly i researched for keyword which has good search and low competition. Then i started writing post with rich keywords. In the mean time Shubham was working on design and On Page SEO. In 2 days we completed our content writing, designing and On page Optimization.
Now the big task for us is to bring our site on first page of Google. Only 5 days were left for the original event. Then we started our main work i.e OFF Page Optimization.
We started link building targeting our main keyword Holi Songs and Holi songs free download.
And in 2-3 days we created around 8.5 K back-links. You can see the below screenshot of ahref.
Then traffic start flowing on our blog 3 days before the original event. As we were doing it for knowledge and experience. So we have not monetized it till the time.
But on 14 evening, when our real time traffic was 100+. So we decide to monetize it. Then we added Adsense code and Flipkart affiliate banner.
On 15 our maximum real time traffic was 200+. But didn’t get much on Adsense.
As our main traffic is from India. So the CPC was very less around .04$. And Ctr was also not good.
Then Shubham done some changes to increase ctr and it worked.
On 16 our maximum real time traffic was 600. By the end of the day we got 250K+ page views. By some tricks Shubham manage to maintain the ctr over 4%. This day we got 263$ in our Adsense account.
Then the big day of Holi arrived. When i wake up and check the Analytic. And found the real time traffic was 700+, which reach to 900 + max on that day.
But i was not able to take it screenshot.
Then i moved out to play Holi. While i was playing Holi with my friends, money and traffic was raining on my blog. This is the best part of blogging. You can earn while you enjoy.
Total Revenue Generated
We have generated around 521.79 $ through Adsense. But did not get any affiliate sale. So the only income is from Adsense.
It couldn’t be possible for me to get to this level without Imran Bro guidance and Shubham Chugh hard work. Thanks to both of you for motivating and helping me.
