Basically, a blog or weblog is an online journal or an informational website that updates in regularly basis. It can be a personal or business website which allows you to engage with your visitors.

Now, comes to Event Blogging. This is also a type of blogging where the main niche or subject is focus on a particular event. The event may be of any type like festivals, sports, election, film events or any upcoming events.  So, if you start a blog in any particular event as your niche, it is called event blogging. This type of blog receives a huge amount of traffic during the targeted events. You can earn a lot of money during this time by taking advantage of spiking in traffic to your website. However, this type of spiking in traffic is temporary and it drops as an when the events end and your earning too.  You can take it as a seasonal type of earning.

Event blogging can give you the earning that you can’t even dream of earning in the whole year within a short period of two or three days.

2. Get a Domain Name

If you’re a blogger, you mustn’t find any difficulties in buying a new domain name of your event blog. However, I recommend Bluehost or Hostinger to buy your first domain as they provide seamless service and cheap domains as compared to other providers. When you buy a domain always try to include your event name or keyword in the domain itself as it will help in ranking your blog in the search engines and increases CTR (Click-through rate) .  When you decide to blog for any Indian events always try to buy domain with .in extension or .com, .net, .org for any other international related events. 

3. Hosting service

A hosting service or platform is must to start any type of blog or websites. So, you also to buy a hosting service to start your event’s blog. You’ve to buy a good and reliable web hosting service to avoid any unwanted crash or error happens during the events. It is wise to buy a premium or standard hosting service that provides an unmetered or unlimited bandwidth that can handle any huge traffic during any events. If you’re on WordPress, you can go for Bluehost as it is the most reliable and highly recommended hosting providers by WordPress. You can also choose from hostinger, hostgator, Bigrock, etc. as per your wish. 

You can also start your blog without spending a penny by using blogger. To use this service you need to have a google account and that’s all. 

4. Setup Your Blog

Install wordpress using the setup cPanel as provided by your hosting service and uplaod any free themes that can fit your event. If you’re using Bluehost you can follow these steps to setup your wordpress blog

You can also use Blogger to setup your blog if you decide not to invest any money. One more advantage of using Blogger is that your blog or website will never down during any sudden spike of traffic and it is highly secure than any other hosting service.

Always use well optimized and fast loading themes like Astra Pro, GeneratePress and Divi for any event blogging. 

5. Time to add quality contents

Always remember that ranking of your blog at the top of Google’s SERP (Search engine rank page) depends on the types of contents of your blog. However, more emphasis is to be given to your targeted keywords of a particular event. 

You should identify your keywords well in time and include them in your content in order to hit the target. Google’s Keyword planner is the best free tool available you can use to research any given keyword. Always go for keywords which are less competitive and have high CTR. 

You can start posting your articles 2 to 3 months prior to your desire event to start ranking in Google search engine. Write high quality and interesting content not less than 1000 words that can attract and engage your visitors. Incorporate all your keywords associated with the event to your articles.

Posting 20 to 25 articles with at least 1000 words each prior to the event is highly recommended. If you’re writing articles with less than 1000 words, it is highly recommended to add more number of articles like 30-40. 

However, your words count shouldn’t affect the quality of the contents. It only matters if the content is good. Also you must note that word count is not a standalone factor for ranking. Word count has only merit if the quality of the content is high.

Adequate images relevant to your targeted event  are to be used to add more spark. Try to include more original image as it will show your area of expertise.  However, a lot of free royalty images are also available online. Know more about royalty free images.

 

6. Try to add some quality backlinks

Backlinks are the links that comes from other websites. When your site is link with another website, then it is called “Backlinks”.

Link Building is the common factor for any website to be ranked in the Google search engine. The traffic is directly related to the quality of backlinks your blog has. More the linking of authoritative websites to your blog, the better ranking and traffic you get. You’ve to planned very carefully and well in time to avoid any slippage at the eleventh hour. 

You can start to backlink your event blog  after you published around 6 to 7 blog posts. SEOprofiler is the best tool available on the internet as on date to build quality backlinks. When Google released the “Penguin” update, most of the websites that used automated tools to generate links were penalized and removed from Google’s index. So, keep in mind that the quality of the links is much more important than quantity. 

There are number of ways to build backlinks to your event blog. One of the best method to get backlinks from authority blog is guest blogging.

While building backlinks always try to use different type of keywords and Google won’t rank your blog if a particular keyword is using several times. Google will consider it as spammy links and it will affect your blog. Also there should be a balance between Do-follow and No-follow links even though both of them are vital to ranking in search result page.  

 

 

7. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for better Ranking

It is very important to optimize your blog to make visible to your audiences. Even though your blog has high quality contents , it will not be visible to your visitors without SEO work. 

You can do two types of SEO to rank your blog well in advance.

  • Make the URL of your blog a user-friendly link. Include keywords in the URL and make it short as possible.
