If you are reading this article, you are probably trying to decide whether or not you should start blogging. Although I know many people who have turned blogging into a full-time business, a few friends of mine, who have been involved with SEO professionally for over 5 years, do not run their blogs at all. They have either never created a draft for a blog post or did it once, and their plans went right out the window.
Keyword difficulty is a parameter that you should understand if you wish to increase traffic to your blog, and do not want to spend a lot of time on outreach or link building.
When I set up my blog last year, I had been doing SEO for 5 years. My blog was almost perfectly optimised, I analysed and used relevant keywords, and used the correct title and descriptions. I know that a new website with low domain authority has no chance to compete with older sites that have high domain authority and a good linking profile. My first mistake was that I relied mainly on SEO and ignored the power of Pinterest, although I stumbled upon blog posts praising this platform. A few months later, I wasn’t satisfied with the results saying what organic traffic I received, and I made the decision to launch a site in another niche.
