Today, we have Mangesh Kumar Bhardwaj, a Blogger as well as a YouTuber & the founder of "BloggingQnA" so I am going to do an exclusive interview with mangesh kumar bhardwaj.
As you all know that Mangesh is doing great in his field of Blogging also Youtube by providing the right value to the people.
Today "The man behind BloggingQnA" is with us and will definitely clear your Doubts regarding Blogging and motivate you also.
So, without any further due let's welcome Mangesh Bhai to my website and also thanks to him for permit me to take his interview.
Let's start the Interview with Mangesh Kumar Bhardwaj :
1. First of All, Can you please introduce yourself to our readers?Instagram.
2. Can you please explain your Blogging Journey?
What all I can say about this journey is, my initial 2 or 2.5 years were very tough because I am not getting any results. And,
Most important that no one was supporting me in my family apart from my elder sister and my best buddy Ashish Sharma.
But after that everything is going really smooth and amazing, and the rest of all is Infront of you.
3. What are the challenges you have faced during your Blogging Journey?
The main challenges I faced in my initial days are not getting traffic and results from my blog.
Like every newbie, I am also looking for quick results, and I was also thinking that blogging is a quick rich scheme where you will become rich overnight.
Apart from this, Some hateful comments on my videos without any reason and haters I got from this journey.
But, it is a part of life because you can’t satisfy everyone. That’s the truth and I truly accept it.
Sometimes they are so frustrated that they do negative things for me, like negative SEO on my blogs, fake dislikes on my YouTube videos, spammy backlinks and other things.
4. Why do you choose "BloggingQnA" as your Brand Name?
The story behind this name is quite funny or you can say interesting.
I was surfing on Quora and found that quora are a QnA forum where people ask whatever they want.
Similarly, I got a click in my mind that I know about blogging so I will create a blog around blogging where I will answer all the blogging related questions.
And that’s how I named it "BloggingQnA".
5. What is your main motive for creating the Blog "BloggingQnA"?
Let me be very honest here. My main motive to start BloggingQnA is to earn money online.
But the fact is, without helping others we can't earn a single penny in this online world.
So, I decided to provide the best valuable content to the audience, and I will help as many people I can and money will come to me automatically.
And this is what happens to me. Its all about give and take.
6. What do you think about "Scope of Blogging in 2021"?
Scope of blogging in 2021 and beyond 2021 will be good.
Yes, It is true that people are consuming videos and audio more than reading blog posts.
There are lots of people who still love to read blog posts instead of watching videos.
So, the future of blogging is definitely very very bright if you treat it as a real business.
Currently, I am working on 7+ blogs. Some of them are generating money and some of them are experimental blogs.
8. Should Beginners choose Blogger.com for Blogging?
Only and only if you don’t have a budget to invest in Hosting and domain. Otherwise, I highly recommend all to choose WordPress.
I don’t see much potential in blogger.com for creating a successful blog. It's very limited and will take lots of time as compared to WordPress.
9. What do you think about "Adsense vs Affiliate"?
Both are an amazing way to monetize a blog. Adsense and Affiliate both are the best. Only you need to identify which one suits for your blog.Check out below my detailed comparison between both 'AdSense and Affiliate':
First of all, I am not expert in it. But Yes, I have good experience for getting Adsense approval.
Here are the things you need to keep in mind before applying for AdSense approval: -
- 100% Real and genuine content should have on your Blog.
- Make sure to follow all the AdSense policies.
PRO TIP:– No matter how much traffic your blog is getting. Adsense also gives approval to zero traffic blogs. But according to my experience if your blog has good traffic then you will get approval fast with little plag content. ?
Recently I did an experiment on my Hindi Blog for AdSense approval and found some new amazing things about it.
So, I created a detailed practical video on that. Check out that video by clicking the link mention below :
11. Which tactics do you prefer to use to rank on Competitive Keywords?
My Simple approach to rank on a competitive keyword are: -
Do as much deep research as you can do for that keyword before publishing the blog post.
Produce 10 times better content than the top 20 ranking sites.
Providing social signals as much as I can.
Never ignore the power of technical on-page SEO and interlinking.
After doing all the above steps, I move to off-page SEO to boost the ranking of that keyword.
Here, I want to share something really basic but amazing. People are always looking for blogging secrets and some tricks to rank on the 1st page.
And in this race, they are not ready to learn and implement the basics of blogging.
The tip for every newbie is that if you focus on basics more than some tricks and secrets, you can easily rank #1 on any keyword.
Don’t ever ignore the power of basics!
13. Who was your first inspiration when taking your first step in the field of Blogging?
For blogging, In my initial stage, I was inspired by Harsh Agarwal- Founder of ShoutMeLoud, Brian Dean- Founder of Backlinko, Neil Patel, and some other blogs.
And for YouTube, I was inspired by My Smart Support YouTube channel.
14. Give some PRO Advice or Suggestion for newbies Bloggers.
As I said earlier, blogging is not a quick-rich scheme. The most important tip I can give to all the newbies out there is, have patience and work hard on your blog.
Don’t expect quick results.
It will take time and there is no fixed time for the results. It totally depends upon your work and way of doing it.
And one more thing, start blogging with the one niche, in which you are interested. Don’t follow the crowd blindly.
15. What do you think "Why many people fail in Blogging"?
If I talk about it in short then there are 3 main reasons why many people fail in blogging are: -
They think blogging is a quick rich scheme and they will become rich overnight.
They don’t want to invest in blogging, and not taking it as a real business. Thinking that without investing anything, they will earn lots of money from blogging.
Don’t have patience, and not working with consistency on their blogs. It’s a time taking business and requires a lot of patience also hard work with consistency.
16. Which themes do you recommend most?
