I can't believe what I just read. I sincerely thank you for the write up. However, I hope I didn't believe in you out of "wishful thinking".

I don't do best of..... Because the competition is just way high every eye are on amazon rather I write long informative post that are not found on any blog I.e no blog has it as topics.

Most times am just the one talking about that stuff and boom Google being me to top. Although search results are low on this term or quarries

You can use a tool to know which area you can easily break-in and some keywords you can write about. I use tools to do keyword research and I have AI that does content intelligence. Even AI helps with article writing. For example, instead of writing "Best Baby Diapers" you can do "Best Baby Diapers for Newborn" , "Best Babby Diapers for Warm Weather" You can dominate in those longtail keywords.

Best this... Best headphones 2021 will require you to have huge quality backlinks before you rank but am talking of those keywords via Google that's why I said Google is my best but others are useful

Why should he sell something that makes 5k monthly for 70k?
Just trying to understand.
there are many reasons. A lot of people do this for years now. Check Flippa.com or EmpireFlippers or so to see sites selling for huge sums

A blog that makes 5k monthly should sell for 180k USD. It's 24 to 34 months of your monthly earnings

And for folks who are questioning the authenticity of the thread due to the age of the blog; what I’d say is that it’s totally possible. I know a blog that was formed 2020 and now makes around 4000$ monthly from Ezoic. If you want proof, I’d give you link and you’d check his twitter; he’s actually transparent about it.

from the little I learned from the white man, the key is to target underserved niches or areas that are low competitive and have a good search volume. What’s more surprising is that he’s blog doesn’t even have too high DA. And he has about 260 posts from the last time I checked his sitemap.


Bro please drop the link I want to see the proof you are talking about. Some of those white also edit screenshot to sell ebooks and course.

Thanks for sharing this report. Even if you do the video proof of earning, most will still not believe as majority of them are close minded and cynic.

If you wouldn't mind, I have some questions to ask you I am planning to start a blog in automobile niche.

1. What's the niche of your website is it pet or outdoor, or automobile (I am not asking for URL)?

2. how many articles you have on your blog and what is the average word count of the articles?

3 do you write all the articles yourself or you outsource or you do both?

4. have ever done link building to the blog, or your blog attract backlinks naturally?

5. You mentioned about that you have a mentor, no name was dropped, is he Jon Dykstra, Haw Spencer, or Morten Storgaard?

Looking forward to hearing from you. I ask for the mentors name perhaps I can also enrol on his or her blogging course. Thanks in advance.

Re: Rejoinder: Blogging Is Not Dead In Nigeria by geunik(m): 11:00am On Apr 27
The way some of you stress writing low competitive keyword is bad. Low competitive that nobody have written something about ba. There is nothing like that today. Those actually low competitive long tail keywords won't give you huge traffic. You may be getting two to 10 page views daily from them. And you will need hundreds of such to get decent traffic.
I have many low competitive keywords that are just there giving me tiny traffic daily. If you decide to write about a topic that nobody is interested in, you’re going to struggle to get traffic, no matter how good your content is.
I am the only one that have written about putting drug inside eba to swallow to avoid the bitter taste. My post sit at number one on Google and other search engines. Yet the daily traffic from.it is annoying. However, many of such post gives me more than 1k page views everyday

You should understand that the Nigerian government needs foreign remittance, they lack dollars right now, they are bringing in policy that encourages people to sell fx to the bank rather than black market.


https://nairametrics.com/2021/03/06/cbn-introduces-naira-4-dollar-scheme-for-diaspora-remittances/

When next you go to the bank, tell them you want to exchange, don't withdraw it, they might give you a transfer form, from there you can transfer the fund and they pay you higher.


Please accept all I said with open mind and carry out extensive research.




I'm not saying you're lieing o.. But it sounds funny to me

You change 5k dollars to naira from your bank.. When you can withdraw the funds and go to black market and sell at a higher rate?!

That's a whole lot of funds wasted

But I don't know you and I don't know the validity of your post.
I just hope everyone stays safe.

How much is black market? The last time I checked its 480 get your fact right okay .

Even I don't need to take money to Black Market as the black market guys usually drop their contact with the cashier and get my account credited after handling the money over to the cashier and the cashier inform the exchanger through a means they communicate ... Thats how have been doing for the past years since I moved over dorm.

I have never taken huge amount of money saying am going to look for aboki everything is done in bank


But in this case bank said I will buy from you at 486 and black market said 480

One thing with all those guys from Brian Dean, Matt Cutts, Neil patel etc is that they are affiliate marketer and that's where their revenue comes from.. So I don't take their lesson serious because at the back they still role $$$$ to buy good links to get to the top.
These are people who earn 100k to 250k$ monthly. So they can easily throw 20k$ to links over an extended period of time at the back scene

I got connected with a guy on black - ha-t w0rld -

Just join a journey thread there are 100 of them where bloggers started with 0 naira and end up making 10kusd , there is also a YouTube thread where a guy started with just 4 videos per month on and before 8 months is was earning 9k$

Hahahahaha when next you go to the bank ask your cashier.... The one in charge of dollar, ask him if they buy dollars and get their response..


The way they rush $ dollars elm e go shock u cos they sell it about 490 if not 495 to those that need it above that abokifx guys fixed at 485

If you are looking to buy fx at official rate you are on a long thing grin even bank will direct you to blackmarket


Who Are the blackmark? They are the business men and woman... You can join the business and work hand to hand with the bank cashier in charge of $$ over the counter.. Where you give them a share.
Business is all about creativity, instead of waiting for your customer at the shop with huge risk why not set a kinda easier means right on the counter

This shows that you have networks of blogs in different niches that are bringing you money every months.

Is it necessary to hundred of contents on my website before I could make substantial amount with Ads platforms like Ezoic and Mediavine?

Make post lengthen like 2000 to 2500 words and yes hundreds of post because with this there will be high chances of winning easily.
Yes I have several blogs and like 3 unlimited hosting accounts. That's why I can't say it's this niche or this niche

Adsense is not any key! Monetization of blog is beyond Adsense, but most Nigerian bloggers believe Adsense is all and without it, they easily give up!
Please dear, can you shed more light?

Please dear, can you shed more light?
When you talk about adsense you are talking about Google which controls over 90% of Internet traffic and this give them edge above other competitors as far as cost-per-click (CPC) is concerned.

From Mediavine, marfeel, ezoic, adthrive and over 50 partners all get their ads served through adsense. They are adsense certified publishers which means if you get banned from adsense you can't monitized with any of this certified partners.

Then when you come to affiliate the easiest is amazon associate affiliate program. There are other affiliate programs like that gives you 50% commission like click Bank but they mostly don't accept Nigerians or they pay via PayPal. That's said.


Guest post is not a best way to monetised a blog and those that does it maintain over 30 blogs to even 100 blogs and huge numbers of hoisting accounts with distinctive class A IP address.

If your class A is the same and class C is different it tells Google that it all comes from one hosting platform and thier algorithm will hit on all blogs Linking to them and the said blog
Google has recently warned bloggers to give No Follow links to guest or sponsorship post and believe me their algorithm will be hard on those those that don't comply to them


Lastly if you are are having Nigerian traffic the best way to go is adsense because affiliate won't just work because Nigerians hardly buys stuff online with exception to jumai affiliate and their like that sells gadgets, but if you are aiming amazon you should have foreign traffic.

The best seo tool for you is Google search result it self. That's what I use. others are just although still useful but not accurate.

Although I have access to moz, ahrefs, keywordfinder, SEMRush... All paid tools but I used them to analyse site and get their keywords, analyse their strengths n weakness
Please kindly throw more light on how to use Google search results for keywords research
