Thank you! I’m a new blogger, so I have lots of questions:

Does SEO matter for blogs that are not profit oriented? If I’m not in it to become a “professional blogger”, should I care about SEO? Why or why not?

What is a reasonable amount of traffic for a beginning blogger? I have been at this for three weeks, and average about 200 visitors a day. Does traffic matter for not-for-profit sites?

I did put in some passive (adsense) ads and links to an (amazon) affiliate account on my site. I did this in the spirit of “why not?”, rather than as a goal of the site. How much traffic does one need to offset the nuisance factor of their presence? I’d be delighted if I could compensate for the domain name registration fee with such income. Is this realistic?

Thank you for taking the time to consider my questions!

All the best,

hello Mr T I think that your blog is informative and very helpful. Do you know anything about gardening as well. I have a small problem in my garden related to chickens that I need to know abot.

best wishes,

Hi Tejvan,

I was wondering if you could give me some tips on my SEO and whether I’m heading in the right direction with my new blog. I have been doing a lot of research and reading and have been trying to make sure I follow the guidelines. However, it seems that my blog is not showing up on searches and I can’t figure out what the problem is. Any help at all would be much appreciated!

Keep up the good work.

how did the top/most successful blogs make money? Through ads, donations, links, etc? How do ads work as a revenue stream? What makes the most money (ads, donations, etc)?
