Hi again, I decided to post my blogging plan here to see what y'all think and if you have any advice for me! Thanks so much in advance. -------------------------------- So I'm currently working on a blog in the diet/health/food niche (non-English). So far I've posted 10 articles (in 3 weeks), I basically looked for low competition keywords using the kw finder and wrote them myself, each article is about 1000-2000 words. For my next articles I think I'll switch to Buzz Sumo and research hot topics in my niche and write articles about them. Of course I have hosting, wordpress and a domain. I get my pictures from free stock photo sites or I steal some pictures from Google, crop them and change their size hoping Google won't notice and penalize me. When I have a couple of more articles up, I want to start promoting my site. I'm planning to do so via Reddit posts (no spamming obviously), Pinterest, maybe other blogs (I'll try), YouTube (Making slides with useful info I guess, don't wanna be in front of the cam) and Kindle (free or very cheap Ebooks and put my website in the author central and the book). I'm also considering to do paid Facebook advertising, and soon I should probably get an email sign up thing (like Aweber or mailchimp). I'm still wondering when my site will rank in Google. It's only been existing for about 3-4 weeks and for now, nothing is ranking at all. I guess that is normal? Do I have to put my site in any directories or anything? Monetizing-wise I want to do Google AdSense and Amazon. Haven't applied for Adsense yet but I've already included some Amazon affiliate links in articles. For now that's it- I guess in the future I could see if I'll sell my own products or so. ------------------------- So ya, that's my plan for now. Does that sound promising or am I forgetting something, or am I making any major mistakes? Thanks!
