Want to start a blog in Uganda? Blogging is one of the best ways to express yourself online. It is fun to do and often gets addictive with time. It is also one of the easiest ways to make money on the internet today and if you do it right, you will never have to work for someone else ever again in your life.

How to Start a Blog and Make Money in Uganda

Getting employed has never been my forte. I have always loved to do things my way even till now. The only way I could burst myself out of the scene was through blogging. Today i own several blogs on the internet and this is just one of them. Next year I plan to make a dent in the Universe – A masterpiece of all my blogs.

Look, it’s kind of frustrating to live in Uganda today especially if your monthly income falls below your expectations. You’ve got to admit to it. Very few jobs will pay you the kind of money you want and besides, the standard of living is quite high.

If you start a blog today and pumped it with so many high quality articles, you stand a chance of making a reasonable amount of income every month. This could be $1000 plus depending on your niche and efforts. The most interesting bit is you will only need a few hours of each day to achieve this.

If you asked me how much i earn from this blog, i average $1500 every month. That is worth over 6 Million Ugx here in Uganda. Of course as my blog grows, i will earn much more than that. Very few jobs will pay you that kind of money. Please see my earnings for last month as received in my Paypal account below.

How to Start a Blog and Make Money in Uganda

 

You can actually make more than that depending on your traffic and niche. I will explain this further later on in the article.

So what pushed me into blogging? Years ago I heard several stories of how some bloggers were averaging a monthly income of $100,000. This was too good to be true and seemed way unrealistic in my world. I never thought writing content on a website would actually earn you that much. But if you thought twice about it, the internet has over 1 billion users as of today. These users can actually be turned into customers.

Patt Flyn of Smart Passive Income is one of the high profile bloggers that average a six figure monthly income.

In this article I show you the basics of starting a blog to help you get started off the right foot. I have failed so many times in the past but each experience was a learning point. I do not want you to go through the same and just in case you get stuck somewhere, I am readily available to help you out whenever.

Right below I talk about the exact steps of starting a blog in Uganda and if you follow everything right, you will have one in less than five minutes. If you do not want to go through the hustle, TutorialFAQ offers a free blog setup service that gets blogs set up for free. This service comes with a free website design service, configuration, security and basic SEO. Claim your free website here.

If you rather prefer to go through the process yourself then well and good. Just do exactly as I say and you should find yourself there shortly.

What is required to start a blog in Uganda?

Three things have to be in place for your blog to function: a web hosting server, a domain and a content management system (preferably WordPress). A web hosting server is where your files will be stored, a domain is the identification string that points to your web host to load your web files. A content management system that allows you to easily create and update content in a user friendly manner.

1.  Web Hosting and Domain: For web hosting and domain, i recommend you sign up with A2 Hosting. It apparently has the fastest shared solid state drive (SSD) servers in the industry. They will charge you approximately $68 for the first year of their swift plan. Please note that this price keeps changing and could be less by now. See their current prices here. A2 Hosting apparently has four Data Centers; Their main in Michigan and the rest in Arizona, Amsterdam and Singapore. They also offer free Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates for all their packages.

The first step to starting a successful blog is dealing with reputable service providers. You have to be sure that your files are safe and your website will always be online. In case of support, these companies have experts who will help you out in just a few minutes. Never make  a mistake of hosting your website with Ugandans else you will regret. I experienced it before and i can assure you my experience was pretty bad.

2. Content Management System: As for your CMS, i would be so mean if i did not recommend Self Hosted WordPress. WordPress is the most popular blogging platform in the world as per now. Installing WordPress on your server means installing a very powerful and flexible application that lets you to do almost everything you want with your blog. It is free and very easy to learn. Besides, each installation gives you access to thousands of free themes from their official website. A2 Hosting has a script that lets you install WordPress on your server in seconds with a single click. I will show you how the exact way to do this later on in the article.

As for now, you only require those to have your blog up and running. You will need a credit card to purchase web hosting and domain from A2 Hosting. You can get one in less that 2 hours from United Bank for Africa (UBA) along Kampala Road.

Step by step guide for starting a blog in Uganda

Below i show you the exact steps to follow to have your blog up and running. Also i assume you do not have a domain name or web hosting account. If for some reason you do not want to use A2 Hosting then you might have to look at this list of the most recommended web hosting companies. A2 has so many great features that you will like and besides, their server resources are just enough to keep your website running smoothly. Of course this depends on traffic too.

1. Visit A2 Hosting and then click on “Get Started”

Please note that there is a discount for new sign ups. This discount coupon is automatically applied to your order.

2. Choose your hosting plan

You will find three plans: LITE, SWIFT and TURBO. You do not need SWIFT or TURBO right now. LITE is enough to get you started for now. Click on the “GET LITE” button to get started.

3. Choose a Domain

A domain is the address your readers will use to find you. Choose one that is unique, short and easy to remember. Also choose a trustworthy TLD (Top Level Domain). Extensions like .com, .net or .org in their respective order are good enough for trust. I suggest you write down 4 – 5 preferred domain names before you get to this step. This is because the name you want might be already taken.

Click on “Check” after entering your preferred domain and A2 Hosting will check for availability. If your domain is available, you will be notified and allowed to proceed with your account set up.

4. Configure your hosting package

You will then have to configure your account. There are a couple of options on this page but its only two that you are going to alter. The very first is changing the billing cycle to “12 month price” so that you get billed annually.

Now that your billing cycle is changed to 12 months, A2 Hosting is only going to bill you for those months. The next option you are going to alter is the “Auto-Install Application” Click on the drop down menu and choose “WordPress – A2 Optimized”. A2 will automatically install for you WordPress on your account and along with a few basic plugins to get you started.

Now that you are done, click on the orange “Continue” button.

5. Click on “Continue”

On this “Domains Configuration”, there is nothing you are going to change. Just Click on “Continue” to proceed with your installation.

6. Click on “Checkout”

The “Review & Checkout” page shows you the money you are going to be spending annually to renew your account. Accounts are renewed yearly on the same sign up date and month. If you started a blog today (6th December 2017), you will renew your account on 6th December 2018. On the Cart at the right, you will see the amount of money you are going to pay to have your blog up and running. A 51% One Time Discount is added automatically on the final price. All you have to do is click on “Checkout”.

7. Enter Personal and Billing Information

Now you have one more step left to have your blog running. Simply enter the correct personal information and billing information to complete your sign up.

How to Start a Blog and Make Money in Uganda

Note: Do not fill in VAT Number or GSTIN Number under the “Additional Options” section. They are simply useless.

Enter your credit card details below, accept terms and conditions and complete your order. A2 Hosting will charge you about $68 to setup your account and host it for a year. This is equivalent to 250,000 in UGX. You have to congratulate yourself because just setup up a business with only 250,000 UGX and you have over 1 billion internet users to target.

8. Visit your Blog

If your transaction succeeds, your blog will be setup instantly and your WordPress login information shall be mailed to the email to used for signing up. You should be able to visit the blog in less than 10 minutes. Simply open to your browser and type in the domain name you chose. If your blog loads right away the BINGO! If it doesn’t, clear your browser’s cache and try visiting it again after 5 minutes.

Your blog is live, What next?

You now have to create a privacy policy page, an about me/us page, contact us page, terms and conditions / disclosure page and then change your blog title and description. These pages are very relevant and required for some partnerships online. You will definitely need them.

I also do not think you are comfortable with the default WordPress theme. If you need a fresh new look for your website, you can check out the best places to buy WordPress themes. I previously wrote an article that will let you choose the best theme for your blog.

Writing your first post

Now you have to login to your backend and publish your first post. Please note that WordPress backend can be accessed by adding /wp-admin to the end of your blogs url by default. if your blog address is www.tutorialfaq.com then you can access the backend by visiting tutorialfaq.com/wp-admin.

This however, will not be the case with your blog. The WordPress A2 – Optimized script automatically changes the default login url to a random url. You will find this in the installation email sent to you after setting your account. They do this because they want to protect you from hackers and brute force attacks. Changing the default WordPress login url is a highly recommended security patch that you should use.

When you finally locate your login url, username and password in your A2 installation email, you can now go ahead and login to your dashboard to publish your first post. On the left pane, you will see “Posts”. Hover on it, click on Add New, write your content and publish.

Please note that content is king in blogging. Whoever visits the internet searches for content, if you fed them with regular facts or solved their problems, they will gain your trust right away. Read some of these 5 tips of writing good content.

Begin writing high quality articles from the get go. Your writing might not really be perfect but consistency will get to you improve as time goes on.

Promoting your blog

Now this is where so many newbies lose it. Do not be too aggressive while promoting your blog. Some people go spamming on social media to drive traffic to their blogs. This is only short term and will affect you in the long run. When people see you spamming, they lose trust in your blog and will hardly follow any of the links you share. This is a number one brand killer.

A visitor who discovers your blog organically or gets recommended to it is more likely to remain your follower. Gain readers by building trust! Do not lose trust trying to gain readers.

Social media is a great place to spark off your marketing campaign. See some of my untapped ways of increasing web traffic with minimal marketing.

Build an email list from day one. This might not work out straight away but trust me, you will feel the advantages later on when your blog has grown.

My Tip: If you want to promote your blog and have it explode within the first year, solve problems online. This partly explains why “How To” blogs often succeed. Write high quality problem solving articles and get active on forums like Quora.

I can help you increase your traffic within a short span through simple hacks. you can contact me for private tutoring.

Making money from your blog

So how do you make money blogging in Uganda? There are lots of ways of monetizing a blog. From my experience, Affiliate Marketing is the best and brings in a lion share of revenue. You hardly see any banners on my blog but i still manage to make money. My blog has so many affiliate links that earn me commissions for each referral.

For beginners, Google Adsense is a good place to start from. Most Ugandan blogs solely depend on premium banners and Google Adsense to monetize their blogs. That is the only blog monetization language they know. With affiliate marketing, you are still able to make thousands of dollars from just 1000 users or even less. All you have to do is choose a profitable niche for your blog.

So when is the right time to start making money from your blog? I discuss it all here.

What to avoid

Do not become greedy just because you want to make money in the short run. The moment your blog goes live, look at it as a business. Keep doing the right things day by day. Be patient and stay focused always.

What to expect

First and foremost, do not expect your blog to yield right away. It takes time, hard work and lots of commitment. The reason why so many blogs fail nowadays is that lack of commitment and being impatient. Blog about good stuff and trust me, the magic will work itself after some time.

Secondly, you are going to get pretty much knowledgeable. WordPress, Blogging, SEO, SMO, SEM and making money online are all related fields. Some how you will get to learn at least the basics from each segment.

Useful Resources

Some websites have been very useful in my blogging and WordPress journey. Since you are setting up a WordPress blog, WPBeginner has all the information you need. They have solved most of my problems. From now on StackOverflow, Quora and the WordPress forum shouldn’t snap off your fingers.

Free blog setup

Just like mentioned earlier, TutorialFAQ offers free blog setup services. We will design for you a basic website for free then configure it for SEO, security, flexibility and more. Read more about this offer here and learn how you can claim it.

Wrapping it up

So many Indians, Americans and other nationalities are scooping five to six figures online every month. It would be very selfish of me to keep this information to my self. I was born here in Uganda and have lived the rest of my life here. I know what goes on here. I am a graduate and once went through the hustle of looking for jobs. When you resort to making money online, it will be pretty much easier for you to become rich even with minimal efforts. Its quite a long process but with time, experience becomes your strength.

Starting a blog is just one piece of the puzzle. There is a lot involved. In this article, i tried to summarize all those major things you got to do or avoid if you are to succeed. This is why i had to make it very lengthy (more than 2800 words). For private tutoring, you can contact me and i will be able to meet you at an agreed schedule as long as you live here in Uganda.

You know what? Blogging is fun. At the time of writing this article, i am in Jinja relaxing. I get busy on my laptop for like 3 hours and go doing other stuff. Of course i make money online. You should try out blogging. You will definitely love it.

Want to get free Twitter followers very fast? I have an arsenal of 20 untapped and legit ways of achieving this within a short span.

Free Twitter Followers

With over 328 Million monthly users, I would say Twitter is undoubtedly one of the most essential social platforms that every business must be part of. Just like other platforms, having more users on Twitter means more business, traffic or exposure for your business hence, very crucial to grow your followers as far as you can go. It can be a very good tool for business and can help you gain competitive advantage if used the right way.

Twitter can help you generate lots of leads for your business, strengthen your brand and build several connections with other circles. The sad part is if you have few or no followers at all, you can hardly enjoy all these great opportunities.

If you are looking to double or triple your followers base, i explain some of the 20 most effective ways to get free followers on Twitter very fast. These hacks are legit and if used the right way can grow you thousands of followers within a short time.

Please stay away from those Apps you see online that will promise you a chunk of followers for a low cost. Where as some of them deliver their promise, there is no use getting non-targeted followers for your business.

These followers will hardly convert to any sale and can easily unfollow you. When a user organically finds your page, they follow you because they expect or have something in common with you and that way, they will be of much influence to you.

Below are just some of the legit ways to increase your followers on Twitter.

1 – Follow more people and get followed back

When you follow more people, you are likely to get followed back by the same people or any users who follow them. The best target is people with a few followers since the ones who are followed by so many hardly follow back people who just followed them.

2 – Tweet more often

Sending out a good number of tweets each day doesn’t hurt you. Well it does when you tweet non-targeted staff and could cost you followers. Tweeting more often should mean tweeting the kind of stuff your followers prefer to see or hear about. If you are well established in the health niche, try keeping your topics close to that and that way you will sure get more retweets and engagements and so on. Do not ever go off topic.

Tweet less during working hours and more on weekends to get more engagements. Timing your tweets right will definitely increase your visibility.

3 – Socialize

Twitter is called a social network for a reason. Get out there and socialize more often and you should see people following you. Feel good about meeting new people, interacting with them, retweeting their stuff and mentioning them often. Fact is no one likes boring people on social platforms and the mere fact that you are a fun person will earn you loads of free followers.

Retweet other peoples tweets and like them often. You could also share solid ideas with the people you engage with and they should feel more attached to you. If you have less time to tweet, social tools like SproutSocial and Hootsuite should help you schedule your tweets.

4 – Become a problem solver

The world is always centered around problems and will forever be. Have you thought of taking advantage of this to gain followers on Twitter? Well, this is how it works! Irrespective of the niche you established yourself in, try to be that person many will trust with their problems and believe in. Only challenge is you ought to make sure your solutions work else your followers will lose trust in you or even not recommend you at all.

One thing i know is when you solve a problem, the person you helped will recommend you to the next person they find with the same problem. At Tutorial FAQ, most users who read my tutorials and get their issues fixed instantly subscribe to my newsletter and follow me on social platforms as well.

5 – Optimize your Twitter Bio

Biographies do help much especially in scenarios when several other names match yours. It is a good place to tell your followers what you do or describe yourself for what you are known for. You ought to make sure that whatever you write here is professional and captivating. If you can, write out something interesting about yourself or business.

6 – Place widgets on your website

Do not let users visit your website and go away like that. Place follow buttons or other widgets at good positions so that they can follow you easily. The placements matters so much here! If you place the buttons at places that are not easily seen then your conversion might be relatively low.

Some of the hot spots for placing twitter follow buttons are; right below the content, on the header or sidebar depending on the layout of your user interface. It might be hard for you to locate a spot that really works for you hence, you ought to keep adjusting until you find one that works fine for you.

7 – Mention influential users

Mention influential users within your niche in your tweets often. One of them could retweet your tweet someday and earn you thousands of followers in minutes.

To increase your chances of getting retweeted, talk about the hot stuff trending in your niche or rather try to jab him with what he likes . You do not have to over do it, just keep it minimal.

8 – Run Promos and Giveaways

Buy something cool and run a promotion for it. Need ideas to this? You could come up with a challenge and ask your followers to retweet it with a specific hashtag and mention then try to reward the followers with the most retweets within the given span.

Make sure the gift is super cool and worthy it if you are to keep the engagement at a high level. For a tech blog, it wouldn’t hurt investing thousands of dollars to purchase a few pieces of iPhone 7s and running a promotion based on them as the ultimate giveaway. It is definitely pricey but could earn me more from the new followers i would get.

9 – Engage your other community

Are you already established on other social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, GooglePlus or any other? Sharing your tweets on such platforms can make it easy for your other followers to locate you on Twitter. Ask them to follow you on Twitter occasionally.

You could also place your Twitter profile link on all your other social platforms’ respective pages to make it easy for users to find you.

10 – Your friends could help too

We all have those kind of friends who are followed by so many people. If you do not have some then you are not that social kind of person. Ask these friends to recommend you on their profiles and you should get a whole bunch of followers free.

If you want to know this works, watch celebrities closely especially the ones who open up social media accounts for their children. These celebrity kids can even get hundreds of thousands of followers in just a few days because their parents who are followed by so many asked their followers to follow them.

11 – Use Twiends

With millions of users worldwide, Twiends will let you join their website at no cost and earn seeds that you can instead use to increase your exposure on the platform and get more Twitter followers. Seeds are a medium of getting people to follow others via their platform.

If you follow a user on Twiends, they earn more seeds. These sane seeds can be used to spike your visibility and increase followers on Twitter. Twiends offers exposure and nothing else. It does not sell Twitter followers and if used well can get you a bunch of real followers.

12 – Post and Share Memes and Quotes

Memes attract more user engagement often and can be a great way to get yourself out there. Creativity is key here! You can choose to create your own or look for nice ones on the internet that aren’t common. Share at least 3 – 5 of these each day with your hashtag and mention in the excerpt or description.

13 – Break the News

A lot of good and bad stuff happen around the world lately. Be among the first to share news in your niche always to your followers but keep it true. This way your followers will retweet your posts and cite you as the source. The biggest deal that can come out of this is when popular media houses or public figures retweet you.

Do not share something you aren’t sure about because it does just the opposite – Kills trust and makes it hard for followers to believe in your stories again. You might have instincts of being true but being patient and first verifying the news could save you a lot.

14 – Share Hot and viral stuff

There isn’t a doubt that viral stuff get a lot of engagements. This can be a great way to grow followers but could cost you followers at the same time especially if you start posting stuff that is off topic. Many people lose it here and you shouldn’t be among that circle.

Post ethical viral stuff that is relevant to your readers and make sure you do not over do it. Sharing a relevant post in 2 or three days should just be fine. It might not come easy at first but trust me, you will nail a jackpot one day when one of your posts floods Twitter.

15 – Include Keywords in your Twitter Bio

Including keywords in your Twitter biography can rank your profile in search engines. Try to list your services or rather important information about you that users can easily use to locate you. When the exact keywords are queried in search engines, your profile could show up and users can easily follow you.

16 – Hashtags are very relevant

A hashtag defines your brand on social media. Innovate a rare hashtag that your followers can use when interacting with you. Also, maintain such hashtags whenever you tweet to keep your followers engaged and increase your visibility as well.

Another way you can take advantage of hashtags is when you retweet trending posts with their respective hashtags. This way, people who are searching for the same topic on Twitter can easily find your post and follow you or retweet you.

17 – Ask your followers to Retweet your stuff

Asking your followers to retweet your posts definitely increases your visibility and could earn you followers too. Be kind and ask often and you should receive.

18 – Posts with images engage more

Avoid keeping your posts too plain, try sharing a few images as well. Images are more engaging than plain posts and you should take advantage of them. A study also proved that images get more retweets, followed by posts with links and then plain posts.

19 – Upload your email contacts

Do you have a huge email list? You could import this list to Twitter to find people to connect with. This will help you easily locate people you know in real life.

20 – Twitter Ads

I have saved the very best for the last. If you have the finances, do not hesitate to use Twitter ads to get followers. It might be pricey but trust me, you will get a lot of genuine targeted followers who are likely to convert into potential customers for your business.

There are so many ways you can get free Twitter followers for your business and above are just some of them. All the strategies above are very effective and will help you grow your followers if done the right way. Do you feel like i have left out something? Do you know any other better way of growing free Twitter followers? Please feel free to share with us below.

Ever since the initial release of WordPress in 2003, blogging has never been the same. I would say it was made pretty much easier, faster, secure and fun. WordPress does combine all these great features and is currently used by millions worldwide.

Change Wordpress Theme Name

So many themes get rolled out each day on various stores and several of them are phased out as well. These themes have names and their respective release versions along with other vital information like author name and address. So did you just buy a theme and feel like you need to change its name to something else or rather are you creating your own theme from scratch and feel it deserves that bad-ass name you have been thinking of all along?

Changing the name of a WordPress theme is way simpler than you think but can cause complications as well especially to those that are not so conversant with editing files in WordPress.

I am going to show you the best way you can change the name of your theme without any complications along with some precautions you have to take. I will also air out some of the common issues that may arise and how you can solve them.

What you should know!

When you activate a theme, WordPress saves the theme details in the database hence, in some rare cases especially if your site is running an older version of WordPress, altering the name of an already activated theme might cause issues on the front end. This is because WordPress is not able to relate the name it saved in the database to the new name you just gave your theme.

To be on a safe side, you can roll your site back to the default theme and follow the steps i am about to share below to change the name of your WordPress theme then reactivate the theme again. That way, you will make the changes without an issue.

So how do you alter WordPress theme name?

Now this is where the challenge comes. I assume that you are at least conversant with using a ftp client to download and upload files on your server or rather visiting your website’s control panel manually and editing files.

If your website is running version 4.7 plus of WordPress then your story might be cut short a bit or perhaps made pretty much simpler as you may have to make the changes from your dashboard. It is possible to edit your theme’s stylesheet even in older versions of WordPress but it does have a risk attached to it.

I am going to illustrate two ways you can change the name of a WordPress theme. We simply have to alter the main stylesheet (style.css) of your WordPress template. Please ensure to backup your theme before altering its files.

Change name via WordPress Dashboard

If you are logged in to WordPress back end as an administrator then you should have access to your current theme files.

The only flaw to this is you have to first activate a theme before you can access its files directly through the dashboard. Maybe in future WordPress will patch this up so that users are able to edit files of non-active themes directly through their dashboard. It will definitely save a lot more!

To change name of WordPress theme through WordPress back end, simply navigate to the main menu, hover on “Appearance” and the click on “Editor”.

Change WordPress Theme Name

When you click on “Editor”, the file we are looking to alter (style.css) will appear right away on the next screen that loads.

You should see Theme name, version, description and more right at the top of the stylesheet. Endeavor to first copy the current name of the theme then fill in a different name, save and your changes should reflect right away.

The next step is to check whether your site is running well.

Clear your cache plus cookies and try visiting the front end of your website to check if your site is running well. If you realize your site is broken, deactivate the theme and reactivate it again to overwrite changes in the database.

To confirm your new theme name is active, hover on the “Appearance” tab and click on “Themes”. A new page that lists all your themes will open and you should see the new name.

Change through direct server access

Alternatively, you could decide to access your theme’s stylesheet; style.css directly using a FTP Client or through your web hosting control panel. This file can be found under /wp-content/themes/theme-directory where “theme directory” is the directory of your active theme.

Simply make respective changes to the style.css file as illustrated above, save the file and your theme name should change and reflect right away in your dashboard. Please do this after backing up the file and that way you will have a fresh copy of the file to retrieve in case anything doesn’t go right.

If your website breaks, try deactivating the theme and reactivate it again to overwrite changes in the database.

Wrapping it up

Changing a WordPress theme name is as simple as that. If you want theme detectors to display your new name then you either have to delete the readme.txt file in the root of your WordPress theme folder or alter it to display your new details.

If this tutorial worked for you, do not hesitate to share with your friends. Also, drop me a comment below if you encounter any problem in the procedure.

Looking for how to get more Instagram followers free? In December 2016, Instagram hit a 600 Million monthly users milestone, doubling its size in just a span of 2 years. Instagram is not only a good place to store and share your photos online BUT a great platform to grow your business too. It is one of the most loved and used social networks at the moment through out the world implicating if you got more followers, this can mean more sales for your business, more page views and a large community as well. All these are great benefits you do not want to miss out on, partly why i share some of the most effective ways to grow thousands of Instagram followers very fast.

Grow Thousands of Instagram Followers

Whether you are doing it from scratch or trying to grow more followers for an already existing Instagram account, these tricks will work out pretty well and fast for you. The whole secret lies on engagement and how consistent you are on the social network else, you might just find a hard time growing followers.

Do not be among the circle that is always out there to buy Instagram followers or comments, this will hardly work for you and even if it did work, chances are high that you will get fake Instagram followers who will not be relevant to you.

Please see some of the 15 untapped ways that will help you get loads of Instagram followers very fast.

1 – Ask your followers to follow you

This is undoubtedly one of the most effective ways to get real Instagram followers but requires you to have an existing online community. This community could be on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp or else where. You simply have to ask your other followers to follow you on Instagram too, and not just once or twice but always consistently. The better way to this is by running a few promos on your respective community pages that will drive your followers attention.

2 – Like photographs in your niche

Liking photos of people you follow is one way of getting your name out there pretty fast especially when you target people with huge followers. This comes handy with comments too! Do not hesitate to drop several engaging comments after liking photos and it should be easy for other people to discover you. Like at least 7 – 10 photos on each account per day and watch yourself gain followers.

3 – Socialize

Instagram is called a social network for a reason. Endeavor to socialize with so many people you might get engaged with and make it a point too to respond to comments dropped on your photographs along with the ones you drop on other people’s accounts. Socializing will definitely increase your visibility on Instagram and instead earn you more authentic followers to interact with.

4 – Create a unique hashtag and use it often

A hashtag defines your brand on social media. Coming up with something unique will definitely enhance your brand the more and make it easier for other users to reach out to you as well. This is apparently one of the greatest ways of gaining fresh content for your Instagram account. Always encourage your followers to use your unique hashtag when posting content on their own accounts then try to repost their images on your account while giving them the deserved credit. That way, they will feel more engaged to you and you will suddenly notice your Instagram community growing bigger.

5 – Break the news

So many strange things happen in the world nowadays and quite many are bound to happen. Have you thought of taking advantage of this? You do not have to share every hot cake out there BUT being among the first to share news in your niche can gain you massive followers in a short span. Endeavor to use appropriate hashtags and mentions when sharing such news. Geotagging (adding location to your post) can be an added advantage as well as it will help get your news out there very fast.

6 – The “Follow – Unfollow” Technique

This sounds outdated but still works fine. This technique will let you play with Instagram’s Algo and get your name among the recommended people to follow on so many occasions. All you have to do is look for people with millions of followers then simply follow and unfollow them immediately. Keep repeating the same trick across all selected accounts everyday but do not over do it. Messing with 5 to 7 accounts should wrap up your day fine.

7 – Find out what your audience likes

Finding out what your audience likes and sharing what they prefer could make them recommend you to others. Besides, they are likely to get so engaged to your posts which will definitely increase your visibility. This is also a two way because sharing what they dislike could cause them to unfollow you. To be on a safer side, run a few polls on your account or other promos that can help you know the kind of stuff your audience likes and engage more often to then try to reflect your content within those findings.

8 – Create and Share Memes

Memes are so popular nowadays. You can use them to garner hundreds of thousands of followers overtime but depends on how creative you are. Sharing a few memes on your Instagram account each day should work out fine but endeavor to keep them to the topics your audience prefers. If possible, mention a few of your friends on each post to increase exposure.

9 – Post Viral Stuff

Viral Marketing is one of the easiest and fastest ways of getting yourself or business out there. Funny thing is you can never know what your breakthrough post will be because most of the times it just happens. Try to post viral stuff on your account more often and one of the posts should nail you a jackpot some day by going viral and getting you lots of new followers. Do not stick to photos only! Try posting a few viral videos as well without losing focus of your topic.

10 – Geotag your photographs

Geotagging means adding location to a each of the photos you share on your account. If you visited a cool place recently, make it a point to add location to each of the photographs you took and wish to share on Instagram. That way, people who visited the same place will find you easily and feel like they have something in common with you, which could further make them follow you.

11 – Your friends could help too

If you have any friends with huge followers, ask them to recommend you to their followers more often. I once saw a celebrity couple garner over 1 Million followers for an account they had created for their newly born baby in just a few days. The more the friends with huge followers who are likely to recommend you, the easier it will be for you to get so many followers quickly.

If you can, spend out a few bucks on celebrities and ask them to recommend your account. You should see the magic happen sooner than you thought only that you are likely to get a non-targeted audience if you liaise with celebrities outside your niche.

12 – Share Instagram posts on other social networks

Try sharing your Instagram posts on Facebook and Twitter with proper hashtags and mentions to engage your other audience or communities. These people could click on your link, land on your account and follow you. You do not necessarily have to share every post. Only choose out a few that you know are likely to get good click-through-rates.

13 – Run a Contest

If you have something cool to give away, run a contest and reward the winners. You could decide to share a particular image and ask your followers to repost it with your desirable hashtag and mention in the caption then decide to reward the followers that shared most. To make this work out fine, make sure the giveaway is worth it. It could cost you a couple of dollars but will definitely earn you more followers.

14 – Post Quotes

Quotes are quite engaging and get reposted so much. There are millions of quotes on the internet apparently that you can share on your account. Tools like Canva can help you create outstanding photos with such quotes online in just a few minutes. Do not forget to include a visible hashtag and username right next to the quote.

15 – Pay for Instagram Ads

If you have the money, you could try out Instagram Ads. Instagram Ads are outstanding as regards boosting your online presence and performance on the social platform. These Ads will help you reach out to people within your niche who could be interested in buying your products or services.

Bonus Tip: Link your Instagram account on other social networks to make it easy for your other followers to locate you.

Folding it up

I just shared some of the 15 most effective ways of growing Instagram followers that should help you increase Instagram followers within a short span. As said previously, your consistency will determine how fast your followers will grow. Do not hesitate to put in the hard work each day.

You rather get authentic followers that you are sure will be relevant to your business than the ones who aren’t of interest to you. If you get real Instagram followers, you will also notice high click-through-rates and conversion.

How to create a Fake Adsense Revenue Report http://tutorialfaq.com/fake-adsense-revenue-report/ http://tutorialfaq.com/fake-adsense-revenue-report/#respond Wed, 09 Aug 2017 22:42:40 +0000 http://tutorialfaq.com/?p=2369 If you are looking for some of the best ways of monetizing your blog today, Google Adsense is sure one of those top blog monetization schemes you can enroll on your blog for good earnings.

If you are looking for some of the best ways of monetizing your blog today, Google Adsense is sure one of those top blog monetization schemes you can enroll on your blog for good earnings. Adsense operates on PPC (Pay Per Click) implicating whenever a user clicks on an advert on your web page, Google commissions you for the click.

Fake Adsense Revenue Report

I would also say Adsense is the best PPC network apparently and there is no doubt about it. It is one of the best ways to kick off a blog monetization journey for newbie bloggers.

It is not easy to earn a fortune from Adsense unless you are extremely hardworking, smart-working and patient. There are so many reports on the web that show huge Adsense earnings that shouldn’t move you and you are pretty sure of the source.

So many bloggers nowadays create Fake Adsense revenue reports to earn trust from readers and surprisingly, it works out big. Most of these readers often give in their trust and loyalty which in turn benefits the blogger in various ways.

Today i am going to earn $180.29, i am also going to show you how i earned $210.84 yesterday, $3000.62 in the last 7 days $5000.21 so far this month with a balance of $7100.68 and last payment of $11,600.55. Please see screenshot below;

Fake Adsense Revenue Report

Phew! Crazy figures right there. I would say what you see above is every Google Adsense publisher’s dream but only few manage to raise figures close to that monthly. Honestly, i have never earned anything 7 times close to that for all the years i run Adsense ads on my blogs. In actual sense, the dashboard looks like the snapshot below;

Fake Adsense Revenue Report

As you may see above, most of the figures are $0 because i no longer use Google Adsense on any of my sites no more. I earned thousands of dollars from Google years ago until i had to make Affiliate Marketing my primary source of income.

With such figures, you would not fail probably hail me and visit my site more often for Adsense hacks. You would definitely recommend me too and you know how i gain? I have a new loyal follower (s) who brings in a small amount of traffic each and every other day to my site.

If you try to compare the current Adsense dashboard with the screenshot above, you realize there is hardly any difference. The performance section on the fake Adsense report looks white because all figures are up to 0 and i decided to white-wash it from the rest of the sections.

So how did i earn all this Adsense income?

If you are able to make a few tweaks on your browser then you will be able to create a fake Adsense report that reads hundreds of thousands of dollars with a lot of ease. I assume you have at least some basic knowledge of html! If you don’t, you can still create a fake report only if you follow exactly what i illustrate here.

All you have to do is login to your dashboard, right click on the figure you would like to alter, and then click on inspect.

Fake Adsense Revenue Report

The developer tools pane should pop up and you will be able to see the figures in plain html code. Now all you have to do is double click on the figure, enter any figure you like and click any where on the page to update it.

Fake Adsense Revenue Report

When you enter your desired figure and click away from the developer tools pane you should notice a change on the figure you right clicked on. You have to repeat the same procedure for all the figures you would like to change until all figures are updated.

In this example i entered $100 under the current day’s estimated earnings as illustrated on the screenshot below;

Fake Adsense Revenue Report

Do not trust every Adsense report you see out there especially the ones with very huge earnings unless you trust the blogger. It is very easy to fool newbie bloggers with such stunts and most of them often fall prey of them very easily.

The figures you see on the fake report are not easy to earn in the Adsense world. I am not saying it is impossible to garner such huge income as an Adsense publisher but it takes quite a whole chunk of work and probably millions of hits on your website monthly with majority being organic.

If you are saddened by your current earnings then you shouldn’t despair either. These tips can help you increase Adsense revenue within a short time but remember nothing comes the easy way with Adsense.

As i mentioned earlier on, i no longer use Google Adsense on any site of mine. I realized i could make more from less traffic with Affiliate marketing and it is currently working out for me.

What is the highest you have earned from Google Adsense? Do you consider it as a primary source of income? Share your thoughts below.

I would say blogging is taking the trend nowadays and who are you not to own a blog? Whether you are starting one to make money or rather just blog for fun, it is quite relevant to own a blog in this century.

They will also offer you a free domain name for your first year of service.

Their 24/7 support is one of the best in the web hosting industry which partially contributes to their official WordPress recommendation. SiteGround offers free automatic upgrades, free SSL for two of their strongest plans, has an inbuilt WordPress caching feature, offers a free Content Delivery Network (CDN) service plus a lot more features.

Do Adsense optimized WordPress themes increase revenue? In simpler terms, do themes have any effect on your Adsense earnings? So many bloggers out there hardly get a clear answer for this but truth is they do and they don’t. So why am i supporting it and at the same time contradicting it? It’s simply because what matters most is the several factors that affect Adsense CPC and mostly the ads placement of your ads. A theme developer can choose to place ad slots in places that will earn you high paying ads and high click-through rates while considering other factors too. Some other factors could be placing ads top-left on the left sidebar because the human eye looks from top to bottom vertically and left to right horizontally.

Adsense Optimized Wordpress Themes

Another trick could be offering none of the ad slots to the sidebar(s) but rather in, before or after the post content since that is where the main focus of a reader lies right. All this is dependent on the way the ads are placed on your blog, implicating if you know the best spots to place ads and have basic knowledge of editing WordPress themes then you can easily optimize any theme for Adsense. For those that don’t know the best spots to place Adsense ads? You shouldn’t worry either because Google already has the spots out on their Adsense Heatmap.

Another mind blowing fact is most of the Adsense optimized themes mentioned below are equally fast and optimized for SEO as well which sounds more like a bonus since it grants you a slight portion of On-Page optimization. Besides, themes that are optimized for SEO are most likely to get you more organic traffic, higher CPC bids and more clicks compared to non-SEO optimized themes. All bloggers want the most from Adsense and so do you. If you need no hustle looking for the best spots on your theme that will generate high click-through rates, i have a couple of themes already listed on this article that will skyrocket your Adsense earnings irrespective of your daily clicks.

Best WordPress Themes for Adsense

So many factors affect Adsense CPC and themes are one of those factors. If you are looking to increase your Adsense earnings then these themes should definitely help you.

1. AdSense Theme

This theme was authored by MyThemeShop and comes with a number of great features that will increase your Adsense earnings. It’s probably one of the best Adsense optimized themes in the market today. This theme comes with an inbuilt Ad blocker detector that will detect any Ad blocker add-on and ask a user to disable Ad blockers for only your blog. You can customize the message that appears on the pop-up to convince your visitors more about disabling Ad blockers for your blog.

Besides it’s various inbuilt Ad placement slots, this theme is also very fast and optimized for SEO. It currently has over 8 pre-defined layouts you can choose from. Watch video below for a much broader view of it’s features.

2. Magazine

Adsense Optimized WordPress Themes

This theme was authored by Themify and designed basically for Magazines and news websites. This 3 column WordPress theme was designed in a way that it has to be used along with the Themify Builder to build multiple layouts easily. The builder enables you build complex layouts like for major news websites in a short period of time and with less hustle.

With the 42 pre-built layout options to choose from, retina support, new ticker plus more great features, Magazine should power your next Magazine, Blog or News website.

3. Truemag

Adsense Optimized WordPress Themes

Truemag is yet another great member on the list. This theme has been around for quite some time now (Since 2014) but all i remember is using it once for one of my entertainment magazines and noticing a sudden increase in my CTR (click through rate) shortly after installing it. Besides the great features and ad slots, i am recommending this theme out of my personal experience and guarantee you will see results right away if you make use of it’s in-article inbuilt ad slots.

So what are the features i am talking about? First and foremost, this theme is fast! What i would also consider is the responsiveness of the inbuilt ad slots. For WooCommerce users, Truemag has all the features and compatibility you need.

4. Sensational Theme by MyThemeShop

Adsense Optimized WordPress Themes

If you are thinking of starting up a Magazine / Blog then you should consider Sensational Theme by MyThemeShop. Besides the pre-built ad slots on the right and left sidebars, this theme allows you to place ads right below the post title (best spot for adsense ads) and just after the title. To maximize revenue, place a 120×600 ad first on the left sidebar, another below post title and the last block after post content. If you feel the urge to add a fourth block then think of placing a Skyscrapper ad on the right side bar.

This theme is also SEO ready, WooCommerce compatible, optimized for speed, comes with 5 predefined demos plus 1 fluid responsive layout and more. Want to know everything you can do with this amazing theme? Check it out below.

5. Admania Theme

Adsense Optimized WordPress Themes

Admania was authored by UserThemes and released in November 2016. Besides the high-conversion inbuilt ad slots that will definitely skyrocket your Adsense earnings, Admania comes with a live front end ad editor. This feature adds an edit button on all the ad slots seen in the screenshot above to make it easy for you to add ads and preview them right away. The theme offers over 10 ad slots to choose from, with most of them being placed on areas that Google itself recommends through their heatmap. Another great feature about this theme is it’s sticky sidebar. Ads are stuck on the sidebar as visitors scroll down and up a page which definitely increases chances of the ads being clicked on. And besides, sticky sidebars also result into high impressions on ads implicating CPM (Cost per thousand impressions) ads would still add up revenue on your earnings even without clicks, which is quite a fair deal.

Admania comes predefined with 5 custom impressive layouts, is fast and is very user friendly. This theme mainly powers magazines, news websites and blogs.

6. HotNews by MyThemeShop

Adsense Optimized WordPress Themes

Hotnews was built for speed and suitable for any one who wants to start a magazine or blog but can also be used for a viral site. Just like other themes above, this theme has well placed inbuilt ad slots and is responsive. Some of the ad slots lie below the main navigation menu, on the sidebar plus a few in-article slots to choose from. It’s a very light-weight and simple theme that won’t give you hard time to install or configure. Built on HTML5 and CSS3, this theme will definitely make your blog ready for the future.

7. Newsmag

Adsense Optimized WordPress Themes

I have saved tagDiv’s masterpiece for the last. I would choose this theme any day next to Adsense Theme by MyThemeShop. This theme is fast (comes pre-packaged with tagDiv speed booster), nice looking and will let Adsense ads blend in beautifully to your website without affecting the user in any way. Newsmag comes pre-built with 3 in-article ad slots; one below post title, one in post content (usually gets high CTR) and the last one just after content on top of other slots on the sidebar and header. This themes comes featured with the WP Bakery visual composer plugin that will let you place your Adsense ads anywhere on the your website except on the categories. I just have a lot to say about this theme and to be honest, it’s more than worth the money you’ll spend purchasing it. I currently use it to power one of my travel blogs and i haven’t had any issues with it.

Getting fast themes with proper ad placements is one thing, i believe content is everything. And besides, there is no use increasing your CTR yet your CPC is extremely low and if you fall in this loop then i suggest you try other monetization options. CTR means more Adsense revenue but CPC is major too. if you have installed any of these Adsense optimized WordPress themes or any other theme and noticed a sudden hike in your CTR but less change in your Adsense earnings then it’s time you learnt how to increase Adsense CPC for better revenue.

SEO has become more smarter and complicated nowadays. Gone are the days when you just needed to add several keywords in your blog post, build every kind of links and gain top rankings for your respective web pages. I should say SEO has become more harder nowadays and at the same easier for the master-heads. For a beginner, it might take you a whole lot of time and investments to rank your posts especially if your blog falls in a high competition niche; which shouldn’t make you despair either because you still stand that chance.

8 years of SEO

So many ranking factors determine your rankings on SERPs nowadays. Previously, Google Page Rank took the most weight but rather got ruled out a few years ago hence, what you need now is trust flow, high Domain Authority score, a high Page Authority coupled with other ranking factors. However, Backlinks are a still huge sign of trust in the SEO world but could cost your blog if built the wrong way. When i first saw websites getting hit by a Google Penguin update, i vowed never to build any links for my blogs but rather gain them naturally. This meant hard work for me and till now, i always had to try and present outstanding information worth sharing to my readers and maybe hope to get links for my blog.

There is nothing much sweeter in the SEO world than gaining authoritative links naturally. This is more like a huge free gift for your hard work but it doesn’t often come the easy way.

At the time of writing this article, Tutorial FAQ has only 23 backlinks of which 20 of those are nofollow BUT i still manage to gather at least 700 unique views (Organic Traffic) for my blog each and every other day. The number seems quite low for now but will definitely keep increasing as i get more backlinks for my blog. I do not have to be worried about any Penguin update either.

So how do some of my blogs survive with almost no backlinks? I have always believed so much in Keyword research. I target low competition keywords for most of my blog posts so that i don’t have to worry about out-competing the big dogs in the industry right away. And besides, my posts get on the first page of search results for the targeted keywords within a short period of time which is quite awesome because i expect them to bring in a certain amount of traffic to my site daily. These same posts eventually begin to rank for other keywords (even high competition keywords with time) which means more targeted traffic for my blogs.

So what am i trying to say? SEO could seem more easier for you than you think if only you get your keyword research game right. Tools link Semrush, Long Tail Pro or Google Adwords Keyword Planner could help you extract a number of low competition long tail keywords for your blog posts.

Still, it is useless to add a lot of keywords in your blog posts. The SEO game has changed and targeting your preferred keyword once in the title is actually enough to get the work done considering your site structure and backlink profile are strong.

For those that want to burst into the scene, Link building is key BUT i suggest you stay away from it if you are less knowledgeable about it. Focusing on writing quality content, proper keyword research, email marketing, social marketing and building an online community should get you off on the right foot.

On-page SEO is king too. Knowing how to optimize your posts for SEO (basic onpage SEO) should also be at your finger tips always.

So what really matters?

It’s high time you thought out of the box and started looking at your blog as a business if at all you are blogging for a living. A business needs customers, requires a lot of consistency and hard work plus marketing to get potential customers. Think of getting readers for your blog from day one through email marketing, social media engagement, guest posting and forum participation.

I have also seen many writing posts mainly to drive traffic to their respective blogs irrespective of the topic they are writing about. It is quite daring to land on a highly searched keyword and not write a piece for it.

The main thing is writing content that you think will provide value to your readers. Focus on building a brand because traffic will eventually come after.

Does adding many keywords in a post still work?

Stuffing your posts with keywords is way old-school. Ever since google added Latent Semantic Indexing to their algo, it has become pretty much easier to target multiple keywords in a post. A post about cheap SEO tools can also rank for inexpensive SEO tools, affordable SEO tools, best SEO tools and so on without these exact keyword phrases targeted in the post content.

Target your keyword once in a post title, write appealing meta descriptions that use them as a call to action and above all, write content that is extremely useful to people. There are billions of web pages on the internet today and millions of people are always out there looking for useful content. If your content is useful and informative, you will definitely gain trust of readers who wont hesitate to click on your web pages the next time they key in other search phrases. These same readers will go ahead and recommended your blog to others and within no time you will start gaining backlinks naturally.

Do not approach SEO aggressively or rather be hungry for it. Just do your keyword research right, be patient and of course love what you are doing. You want to start any successful business on the internet today? Build a brand and the rest will always follow. Building a brand takes a lot of time and efforts but is definitely worth it in the end.

Of course you have other options for increasing your sites traffic but they mainly revolve around investing heavily in marketing, writing quality articles that solve problems or rather popularizing yourself on the internet.

How do you approach your SEO? Do you publish posts and start building links for them immediately or rather give them time to rank? Me i chose to gain links naturally and i can tell it is working out fine for me.
