Blogging professionally in India is growing just as a virus; each blogger is inspired by another blogger.
Am I saying right? Yes, I am confident and running in the same race.
I started Interview Series on Blogging Nuts to introduce you unrevealed Bloggers who are making a rapid growth.
Have you ever visited www.beforebuyreviews.com?
BeforeBuyReviews is very useful for persons who check reviews about the product before they buy it.
Preet Sandhu runs and owns this blog.
On my Interview Series, I interviewed Neil Patel, Kulwant Nagi (BloggingCage.com), Raman Sharma (allusefulinfo.com), Ankit Singla (bloggertipstricks.com) and much more I have queued. So I suggest you stick around Blogging Nuts to learn blogging & SEO with experts.
During the process of these Interviews, I am learning a lot so you will. And the best thing is I learn new things every time I interview a pro-blogger.
Today in my Interview Series I have a female pro-blogger Preet Sandhu from beforebuyreviews.com who has chosen to blog as her career.
Actually, I caught Preet guest posting on some famous blogs such as bloggersideas.com, iftiseo.com, hellboundbloggers.com and much more, even on Blogging Nuts she did one guest post which got the first-page ranking.
Attention: She was one of the Speakers on BlogX.in conference scheduled on 5 August 2016.
Preet Sandhu is quick in responding on social media sites such as Facebook. And I am sure you will get a quick response once you interact with her on Facebook.
And let me tell you this whole conversation we did over Facebook at night.
Let me give short description about Preet Sandhu?
She is from Chandigarh, India and among a few Female bloggers from Asia. She is the founder of many blogs but mainly focuses on BeforeBuyReviews.com.
She is a Professional blogger, content manager and marketing expert. Social media and affiliate marketer with in-depth knowledge of online conversions.
Question 1: I noticed you do a lot of guest posting? Does this increase your referral traffic or improve the organic traffic as well?
Preet: I see guest posting as a way to connect with an audience of other blogs. I want people to know more about my writing style and my blogs. Moreover, it’s a nice friendly way to connect with bloggers and build a good business relationship.
Guest posting introduces you to the new audience so that’s what a blogger need.
Me: That’s a good practice. The same strategy Neil has opted and now if you read any big publications, he is available. I am sure soon you will be everywhere.
Preet: Thanks for your good wishes.
Question 2: What type of networking do you think is better to enhance your traffic to the blog? Other than guest posting
Preet: Search engine (other than Google) like Bing, yahoo, etc networks are best to increase traffic. So we should target them as well. Facebook ads are also good
Question 3: What do you think about social referral traffic? Are they beneficial for ranking factors on a search engine?
Preet: Yes it is beneficial and helps in improving the rankings.
Question 4: What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?
Preet: My failure was not building relation with other colleagues and exploring the new things about blogging. I was not able to grow my online business as I am growing day by day now.
Me: Yes, this time, I can see you have good relations with other online marketers, keep doing good.
Question 5: What tools do you find indispensable for accomplishing SEO?
Preet: From last few years Google has killed so many factors which were needed in SEO to rank article or keywords. I personally don’t use any tool for SEO expect all in one SEO plugin and SEO by Yoast plugin
Me: I have not used All in one SEO but I can say Yoast SEO is the best free plugin. It is getting updated every week.
Question 6: How do you select a keyword for writing any post?
Preet: I use Google keyword planner, search engines related keyword suggestion while searching main keywords that’s it I keep things easy.
Me: I think Google Keyword Planner is the best free tool. I don’t use it much because of little guidance maybe I will ask you to guide me for using it in near future. So be ready.
Preet: Sure anytime.
Question 7: You are working for around 2 years and may have faced some SEO problems in between, how do you solve it?
Preet: I just try to improve the quality of my website content, remove irrelevant links which are coming to my website and choosing keywords which have low competition.
Question 8: You are in touch with most of the expert bloggers, what’s the best advice you ever received?
Preet: The best advice was that never ever stop exploring your business because it is big industry and it will keep on growing big.
Question 9: What action do you want the reader to take?
Preet: I want that they should subscribe my blog if already subscribed then keep on commenting on my every new blog post.
Question 10: How do you keep coming up with material/content for your blog? Many people struggle with coming up with different articles/posts and they only have one blog.
Preet: Just follow the trend and you can subscribe Google trends with your blog related keywords to get updated with the new market material. You can also follow big blogs and can take an idea from them. You can use forums to find what is going in the market and audience.
Me: Quora work well for me. I see the trending idea there. Do you prefer any specific site?
Preet: Yeah!! Well, I follow neilpatel.com and quicksprout.com. Its a good site to follow and learn things.
Question 11: How many blogs you run?
Preet: Well mainly I am focusing on beforebuyreviews.com but I have other untapped secret projects too.
Question 12: Can you tell me about few sources from where you get products for review on beforebuyreviews.com, are they paid or free?
Preet: Hmmm… sometimes company emails me and sometimes I email company offering them to do paid review of their products.
Question 13: If someone is interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest?
Preet: I would say choose a niche in which you are personally interested and later you can master it. And do not treat blogging like hobby classes and expect lots of $$ in few days or months.
Preet: Yes and that’s not blogging and some enter blogging and get entangled in Facebook trolls and spoil their career and mindset.
Question 14: What do you do when you aren’t working on your blog?
Preet: I spend time with my family as I rarely give time to them for which I am scolded every day.
Question 15: You’re a full-time blogger and I know you love it doing but do you find any most frustrating aspect of blogging?
Preet: No I love blogging and when you love doing something you enjoy things rather than getting frustrated.
Me: That’s good but sometimes things get saturated.
Preet: Not really for me.
Question 16: What would you prioritize? Content? SEO? Traffic? Readers?
Preet: Content>Readers>SEO>Traffic, that’s how I see them.
In between the conversation I forgot to ask one most important question from Preet Sandhu.
