Have you tried recovering your blogging email? I'm not a blogger but I can tell you that loosing your blogging Admin rights wont enable you link to adsense. Try reaching out to Google.

I'm not a blogger but I can give you some tips. Please don't delete the posts. Broken links don't help SEO at all. Besides, your domain can still rank for the other topics. Just ease into the other niche blogs. Check the description of your blog and change the keywords to focus on your niche. The blog description is the content that usually comes up when you search for your blog online.

Thank you

How long ago was this? Google is terrible at customer service though. You'll need to keep sending them reminders. They'll definitely answer.

Ever since I saw the other thread on the OP thinking about closing his blog and others giving advice about SEO, I thought to start my own thread and point out some truths on SEO that your SEO specialist won't tell you:

1. Keyword Optimization is dying: Many 'SEO experts' will disagree with me but this is the plain truth. Say it all you want. Looking for keywords or phrases and inputting those keywords or phrases in your content will only do one thing; Get you blacklisted by Google. Have you wondered why you still don't rank well using the best keywords? That was so 2010.

2. Google Penguin is advanced level of AI ranking: Like I said in the other thread. The guys at Google are not dumb. They've figured out a way to discredit SEO mongers or experts (people who try to beat the SEO system rapidly to rank higher). Now, Google Penguin (Google's new search Algorithm) will deliver different search results to different users searching the same keywords. The criteria for ranking content now is quite dynamic and based on many factors - including previously visited sites and location. So don't take what your SEO expert tells you to heart.

3. Domain Popularity RULES: Ladies and gentlemen, as a 6 year experienced SEO lover, I can tell you for a fact that old domains will still deliver better ranking than newly registered domains. If you have a domain that you registered a long time ago, I'd advise you to dust it up, load your website and content and you'll get better rankings than when you just buy a new domain. You can also buy expired old domain bundles and redirect them to your website and watch your rankings soar. I can show you how.

4. If you start a Blog to be like Linda Ikeji, you'll get frustrated: This is common sense. The golden blogging days are long gone! Google went back to the drawing board and brought back the essence of blogging - which is to talk about the things that you love. Blogs have suffered a dip in rankings over the past 2 - 3 years and it was deliberate. See why all those lazy bloggers are suffering even though they are doing the exact same thing as the popular blogs? When you blog because of passion and not keywords or traffic, Google will identify you and give your blog a boost. it's that simple!

5. Freshness gladdens Google's heart: Keep this at the back your your mind. Google always seeks to bring the best and freshest content to readers searching. Rather than looking for what people are searching and keywords, look for what people aren't searching but will be helpful. Create content consistently that Google rarely sees and watch your domain get popular - even for content that people search for. This is systematic. Your domain popularity can be achieved by posting very fresh content and mixing it up with content that people search for. Your domain rank increases and you perform better in search engines.

6. Social Media is KING but you need to know how to use it: It's not just about posting links from your blogs on social media. Naah, that age is fading quick. Social media - rather than getting you the little 20 visits per day, can rank you higher than your peers on search engines. You need to explore the main social media that always stare directly at us but yet, we never notice. Google+ and Youtube! These sites are capable of shooting your blogs/websites in such a short time. Don't blame the SEO experts, no one wants to do that much of a work.

7. Traffic is SO IMPORTANT, but how you get that traffic matters: Take this honest advice. Getting 20 views per day consistently, is far better than getting 500 views on one day and moving to 0 the next day. What that tells Google is that you were fraudulent in getting that traffic and your site could be blacklisted. This means that you won't rank again. Don't engage in blackhat SEO techniques and generate random backlinks that are not particularly related to the niche that you are providing content on. Google isn't number 1 for fancy. Only make sure you link or are linked to sites that share similar niches to your niche. Sites that provide a flow of content and engagement.

In summary, there's no hard and fast rule to ranking on search engines. Keep doing that blogging but please take away the mindset of making money off it when you could become an authority in your field. Do it because you love it.

I disagree with the OP. Keyword optimization is still the key, but what changed is that you need to include LSI keywords as well as using mostly the longtail keywords which is the best that has happened to adsense income earners.

You can only get blacklisted when you make your post content obvious that you're writing for google robots and not human beings. Google entire aim is to server human searchers with the right content using different factors and location.

As an SEO expert with over 8 years experience, SEO just started in the right way. Google upgraded their algorithm with active AI to fish out fraudulent bloggers that uses blackhat techniques to gain rank and traffic.

Domain age still works, but is not all old domains that works because majority of the oldies aee blacklisted and when you link it to your new domain you may still end up being blacklisted due to the fact that the old domain is blacklisted because of blackhat.

Social media traffic is actually easy to get, but it's a waste of budget if you intend to make money with adsense. Google now detects when users are being gotten from social media adverts and your cpc per click as well as rpm will be reduced drastically in that effect, owning to the fact that social media traffic doesn't make use high paying keywords to reach your blog.

So bruh, don't bad mouth SEO because maybe you couldn't work it out for a long time. You simply came to a wrong conclusion my friend.

No offence intended, but the reality is that you tried but didn't succeed, and that doesn't mean SEO or keyword research and optimization is dead. Please rephrase to SEO is hard today. That will be more reasonable to all other SEO experts.

Thanks

It's a very in debt article, and it's also very well explained. I didn't know some of these facts, so thanks for clarifying this. I have my own business, and I try to learn as much as I can about SEO because this is crucial for a business, in my opinion. I try to do what I can on my own when it comes to social media and other platforms, but there are steps that require a lot more knowledge than I have, so I'm planning on reaching out to an SEO company for a long term collaboration. I was recommended https://www.justseo.co.nz/christchurch-seo-services/ and from what I've read online, it's a good choice. Yet, I will keep learning about SEO because I find this very interesting, and it's a useful piece of knowledge for a business owner.
