Information Providers – Long journey from Failure to Success
Information Providers Blog – An introspection
Information providers is a 10-year-old website developed on the front page and then converted into a WordPress self-hosted blog. The blog neither earned any money nor attracted any visitors for many years.
An introspection – Initially we are ambitious and want to earn a six-figure income through this blog. We never cared about what we should offer to visitors nor never thought,why visitors come to our website or blog. We were in a dream world. Lack of knowledge or no knowledge about ‘must follow rules‘ for successful blogging. We only know that internet is a treasure land and people can dig money and do not know how to?
Lesson : Do no try to become a popular blogger with little or half knowledge on the subject
What is Information providers blog is all about?
Later on. as the days go by, we focused our attention on what we should offer to the visitors. We, as information providers decided to develop a useful informative blog without concentrating on earning.Our only agenda was to offer useful content to visitors without deviating from old website topics where we have spent time and effort on pages – health, affiliate programs, Forex trading, shopping, settlements, and others. We decided to add new topics like blogging tips ( an outcome of our previous experience), inspirational series. We decided to make our blog ‘Niche”, on par with popular websites. Offering information on many topics that exactly suited our domain name Global info online.
Initial mistakes information providers committed – New bloggers – Do not repeat
Initially, we were under the impression that niche website earns more money on Ad Sense clicks. We tried to find out high paying keywords. On Google search, we found that ‘mesothelioma‘, and ‘structured settlements‘ are the top paying keywords for Ad Sense clicks and to the tune of $30 per click (ways back in the year 1998). We chose structured settlements and mesothelioma as my keywords and developed health pages. I did not care to study and understand how health pages earn when professionals have their own health pages..
- We conveniently forgot the effort I should exercise to get traffic to my website and for people to view my topics.
- We also forgot that there are experts who already offered better content on the health topics
- We forgot that there are already high-quality websites for health professionals and hospitals.
- We forgot that traffic or visitors will not come to a website without established credentials.
- We forgot that a website is not shown in the first 10 generic search results unless it has unique and informative content with value-added information to the users.
- The web page will not seem in the first 10 generic results unless it meets all the search engine standards.
With these above pitfalls, we applied for AdSense publisher status. We thought AdSense will approve global info. online domain content, but AdSense did not approve the application. Our ambitious plan to earn huge money from AdSense clicks remain a dream. AdSense did not approve not because of poor content but because of poor traffic. We revamp our website to the present form and now had AdSense approval. Adsense approved our application because we met their prime requirements
- Sufficient good content
- Age of the blog.
The next problem was getting traffic to earn from ad sense. We have not understood internet business better to get traffic to our website because we do not have quality backlinks. and no generic traffic
Realization and revamp process of information providers blog
We started digging the possible clues to come out of this stalemate and convert our failure to success. We started a new approach altogether. We started understanding necessary and sufficient requirements for a blog. We understand that we should answer answer many questions before revamp.

Read an interview extracts of a successful blogger Rahul Kuntala from LearnBlogTips.com. He says monetizing the blog by traditional AdSense revenue or paid ads do not work out. In his opinion and in his own words: (Source http://www.bloggingtips.com/2013/03/03/meet-rahul-kuntala-from-learnblogtips-com/)
My suggestion to new bloggers when monetizing their sites is this: try to focus on building a loyal community around your blogs. Inject trust and credibility by offering unique content, engage with other bloggers using social media sites, and harness the power of guest blogging. Earning money online isn’t a rocket science, you’ll get plenty of thoughts and ideas when you consider blogging as a business (it’s more fun btw!)
