Even if you’ve been to Blogging for less than a month, You’ll surely know about Huge Blogs like Mashable, TechCrunch, ReadWriteWeb and more.. However, if you are yet to start a blog and have planned to convey news in your Blog, I humbly request you to drop your Idea.
Why not a News site?
Well, If you start updating news in your Blog, your readers start expecting news in real-time. If at all you have to convey news to your readers, you must switch to Full-time Blogging which is not easy to adopt by most of us.
Impact on SEO
Suppose you write some news about Google. That topic trends for only a few time and thus Organic/Search engine traffic will be minimized to a great extent. This time your only go is to drive people by referral traffic from twitter or facebook just like Mashable or TechCrunch does.
High Quality of Content
If you are abuzz to start a news website, people start expecting Quality updates from your right from the scratch. So some experience in other niche would be desired.
Too much of competition
If I were the only student in my grade, I’d secure the first rank for sure. But I know it’s sort of impossible! Similarly, Most of the Blogs are up with conveying news to their readers using a collection of business templates. So first blogs first and it would mean to be a slow process for fresh News websites to attract much loyal traffic.
One-man Army isn’t the right thing here
While every single News blog has got at least tens of people working full time. One single person can’t handle all the pressure and pass on the information by himself.
Would you like to read the Comparison between a Blog and Newspaper or would you keep your eye wide open to take sight of the New-New news about Docomo’s holiday offer? Preferrably the former one, right?
Will I Fail for Sure if I start a News blog?
No, I did not mean that. Impossible is nothing – But if you opt news as your niche, Well go ahead – Hurdles make journey sweet! 🙂
