Efogator: What is your purpose of blogging?
Harsh: I seriously never took blogging for earning purpose and what I Feel is first you should not think about money and put your all efforts in making a great blog first then you will notice that money starts flowing naturally. I just love to share my knowledge with everyone.
The Best and Main part which Makes Me Love Blogging Is the Moment When People Call Me sir, That Feeling is seriously Awesome
Efogator: What were the challenges you faced at the beginning of your blogging career?
Harsh: It was really a tough journey for me. Blogging for me was like going to a foreign country and not knowing Their Official language. You won’t believe that I never took any blogging training nor I contacted a Seo expert ever.
All the credits of my success goes to Google and my Mind itself. I still remind a incident when I sort a Little Help from a Blogger And He asked Me A great amount Of money to do That help Since I was a newbie and I had no income source that time so I was unable to give money.
Later on I deiced to Experiment myself and luckily I founded the fix myself , But I really would like to thanks him because of incidents of that type I learned many things and now I m self capable .
Efogator: How long have you been blogging?
Harsh: I am In Blogging from last 3 years, I started my blogging journey from blogger with their default .blogSpot domain then after that I opened a new blog that also didn’t that much well.
After total 6 failures Rootupdate was the only one that was hit and was successful. But one thing I would like to say is that those 6 failures taught me many things and they are the only reason behind making me an expert and Rootupdate a hit.
Efogator: What is your main source of traffic generation?
Harsh: The Main source of traffic for Rootupdate is Search engines like Google yahoo and social platforms like Facebook and reddit.
Efogator: If your blog generates income, what is your main source of income in your blog?
Harsh: The Main source of Income of My Blog Is Google Adsense and Sponsored Posts and reviews
Efogator: Who are the 4 bloggers that has inspired you so much?
Harsh: Harsh Agarwal From shoutMeloud, Mam Nisha Pandey from SeotechyWorld, Brother Sujoy DHar from Wideinfo
Efogator: In this age of high competition in blogging, what do you do to stand out?
Harsh: The Only and Only Thing I Focus to Stand Out from Others And to get on First Page of Google is writing Quality Content And Unique Content, The Main and Best thing which makes Rootupdate unique is You will never find a single line copied from other Blog.
Efogator: How do you handle the SEO of your blog?
Harsh: Handing SEO is not a difficult task; all you need to take care about the thing is your writing skills. More the Healthy and Quality content you write more your Seo will be stronger.
Efogator: What are the 5 things you do not do as a blogger to keep you on the success path?
Harsh: I don’t know anything about this question because it’s hard to tell your own cons yourself , But yes one thing is that I try my best to do all I can to make my blog successful .
Efogator: Which of the blogging platform do you prefer and why?
Harsh: I would highly recommend blogger as A Primary platform because it is free for everyone and not only this but you can do as much as experiments you want to do and You can become a Master blogger on BLOGGER platform, And when you feel that you are well furnished and Perfect and you know every aspect of blogging then you can shift to WordPress.
Efogator: In your opinion, why do so many bloggers fail and only few succeed?
Harsh: According to me the reason behind the above question is that many newbie bloggers just start blog to earn money and just after some days when they see they hadn’t earned a single penny they get disappointed and they quit blogging.
And few of those who succeed are those who wait for the result of their hard works.
Efogator: What is your next plan for your blogging career?
Harsh: I am planning to open A E- Commerce Platform, where I will list mobiles and gadgets.
Efogator: In your opinion, is blogging a full time business?
Harsh: No, it’s definitely not unless you are a great blogger like Harsh Agarval who have more other earning options then Adsense. I have seen many bloggers crying By Choosing Blogging as Their Full time occupation. Remember every glittering thing is not gold.
Efogator: Which is the Affiliate program you can specifically recommend?
Harsh: I would highly recommend Amazon’s Affiliate program.
Efogator: What advice do you have for newbie bloggers?
Harsh: Passion, consistency, patience, hard work with smartness are collectively able to make you successful. If you have all these in you then nothing is going to stop you.
! Keep trying until you make it happen!
And remember one more thing “Hard work always Gives, Not Now But it doesn’t means Never”
