Becoming a successful blogger is a dream of many. Unfortunately, this is harder to achieve today than it was only five years ago. At the moment, there are 31 million active bloggers in the US alone. Approximately 4,000 people are thinking about how to become bloggers each day. On top of that, businesses started including blogs as a marketing method as well. All this means that you’ll have to compete with hundreds, if not thousands, of blogs to rank on page 1 of Google. Not to mention all Google’s updates and changes that occur during the year that can affect your website.
