Tip #1 Choosing the right domain name
The domain name contributes into the SEO of the blog. Choosing the custom domain name is the first step to start a blog.
Why not a Free domain name?
There are many websites offer a free domain name, but the blogger who is having long term blogging view never goes for the free domain name. If you have long term goal for blogging and you have a strong business model then the free domain name is not for you!
The free domain name is not an SEO friendly. It will not get indexed in search engines easily.
If you start with Free domain names like .blogspot.com or wordpress.com or weebly.com or wix.com and later maybe after one year you decided to go with your own domain name then you will lose your visitors.
If you have a long term goal of blogging then go for your own domain name always.
Choosing the right domain name means your domain name should have the keyword or topic name of your blog in it. For example, if you want to start the blogging for the health tips then health keyword should come in your domain name.
The most important thing is at least the domain name should match with the niche or topic about you have decided to write. Don’t choose the irrelevant name.
Tip #2 Choose right hosting provider
Don’t go for free hosting. Free hosting is always have the risk of data security.
Before selecting the hosting provider check the reviews for the same. Check the reviews of the customer support because if you are the beginner in blogging you will need the customer support for your concerns and queries frequently.

Tip #4 Choose a right theme or design for your blog
At start, we would suggest you go for FREE themes or designs.
There are many free theme providers. Please check the reviews for the theme and theme support before picking up it for your blog.
Picking up the theme is depends upon the topic you have chosen for your blog. Any News theme will be good for the blog.
Tip #5 Write Unique Content
Writing unique content is the key to the success of the blogging career. If you are going to write about the topic you have knowledge then you don’t need to copy paste it from other sites.
Always always make sure that you are not copying the content from other blogs or websites. Picking up the content from the other blogs will not give you success in blogging.

Great article, but be cautious with the use of alt text – merely packing alt text with keywords can actually hurt you if it isn’t relevant to the picture directly. Alt text should explain the picture in a way that will work for a screen reader (their original purpose). Only include the keywords if they fit the description.
Thank you Britt!
