After a while, about 6 months, of blogging about food recipes, I realized what a huge potential niche it was. But it actually took 6 months to get its place in Google, because of the competition that was already there.
I now have over 1000 recipes on this Romanian food recipes blog, and over 150 recipes on Phancee Recipes blog. The latter still does not have a consistent theme to attract, however it hosts some great recipes, as some friends told me.
So, it’s first build the content, and later build the theme.
Passive income comes from AdSense and smart placed ads inside articles. using some plugins for ad targeting, the ads make full use of their contextual advertising power.
So, what’s the secret? Writing, passion, writing and writing. Do not worry TOO MUCH about Google, about rankings, about traffic, and all. Just build it and they will come.
After a while of blogging and more than, let’s say, 500 posts (this could be different according to your niche – you could even have to do it after the first 10 posts), should you dig deeper into optimization, traffic analysis and backlinking.
Other than that, let the internet do what it has to do. Your blog will eventually generate the first passive income. And even the first cents are a sign of a future success.
