As the world keeps developing the spread of technology has immensely become easier. Almost every individual with has access to the internet is looking to earn a couple of extra bucks form the internet. Most of these folks normally start their pathway with trying out blogging. In fact who wouldn’t? Blogging seems to be the easiest to start with.
SEO has become more difficult and takes longer to implement
Yes, this is one of the major setbacks for most bloggers. Gone are the days when you could use black hat SEO techniques and article spinning to rank your articles on the first page of google. Google’s new algorithm imitates native search results making the implementation of cheeky techniques virtually useless.
Free organic traffic is literally dead
Another huge setback and probably the most serious of all of them. Traffic is equivalent to the amount of income you earn in blogging.

Almost every platform available for free traffic is filled up leaving no space for new bloggers to generate free traffic from these channels.

Another good thing about blogging is that it’s much easier to earn a consistent passive income from the booming new niches. As the audience has gowned many individuals have developed diverse interests. This allows allowing you to tap into a specific niche and dominate.
