You're lucky if you started a Blogger blog in 2012, ask why? Well, after the latest Penguin update by Google, blogspot blogs have been flooding the search results. This proves that blogger blogs are superior in terms of content quality and search engine optimization.
But why should you start a blog? That is a million dollar question and the answer should well be worth million dollars.
Hundreds of blogs are created every minute and almost 50% of them on Blogger. With this estimation in mind, if you start a blog one year from now there would already be 51,264,000 blogs registered. Wooooh that's a hell lot of blogs in just one year which means you may lose your favorite domain name for your blog. But that isn't really a million dollar answer, right?
Let me explain in detail:
Blogging is on the rise! If you don't catch the bus now, it may be late by the time you reach the destination. Likewise, if you don't go along with the wave and create your blog now, you would be left behind. There's a saying that fits accurately in this context - The best time to plant a seed was 40 years ago, and the next best time is now.
Google's Penguin Update
The latest penguin update by Google has wrecked havoc in the blogosphere. Many established blogs have lost their rankings and Blogspot blogs have rised from nowhere. This update ensured that blogs with low quality content and fake backlinks were punished. Luckily, this is a great news for new bloggers, as quality content will always be appreciated by search engines now. You don't have to worry about getting backlinks - blackhat SEO won't work anymore. Just let the backlinks accumulate naturally.
All the established blogs who employed illicit methods to rank high in search results will have re-evaluate their strategy by flushing out low quality/duplicate content or start from scratch. But you don't have to go nuts to rank high.
Start today, earn tomorrow!
If you are planning to take up blogging as a full-time career then now is the time. You can build your blog into a brand and make money from it. Every blog that you see on the Internet has been started from zero, and you're not a special case at all. Its now or never. You don't have to register if you have a Google account, just sign in to Blogger.com and there you go. Everything has been setup by Google.
I guess the million dollar question is no longer a question.There are thousands of Blogger blogs alone that make over $10,000 a month. Do a research and you'll know how some popular blogs like Huffington Post make $30,000 per day (yes the figures are right and you aren't hallucinating). Oh! And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
