An SEO blog that ranks is like Rome, you don’t build it in a day.

But unlike Rome, it can come crumbling in an instant.

All it takes is a single policy change from Google and your years of hard work will become more years of working harder trying to fix what wasn’t broken.

This happened to me.

I started blogging in 2021. I started from the scratchiest scratch. I spent time and money on:

  • Keyword research tools
  • On-page SEO optimization tools
  • Writing quality content
  • And maintaining these content from time to time.

It took time before I started seeing signs of success, but I did see those signs.

I had a handful of articles occupy the first page of Google search, and the metrics on my Google Search Console were buzzing.
