I tried event blogs before some months and gave up at the time of linking !!Somehow i managed to rank some low comp keywords for mothers day which gives me a very little traffic.So i completely failed in making money from events because i didn't worked on it
After days,i Had a done a small research on some of the event blogs and decided not to do event blogging and here are the reasons.
Buddy i am not going to discourage you or some thing ! I am here just to notify you that Google is getting more smart and biggies are into the attack as well that is some of the branded blogs starting posting event based articles.
- OK!Here comes the first thing,Google FRED update .Exact match domain (EMD) with more spammy links are effected.But EMD with some what better link profile are still ruling the SERP.
2.People started finding some more niches apart from event blogging because "feature snippet"feature of google killed most of the results
3.Remember,Using spun content on event blogs and some links doesn't work now.
Hope these three are good enough
Ok!Event blogging is still a worth to try it as money was flowing.But don't go with spun content and spamming things as at the end they just make your event blog as a worth less one.Just focus on the links quality and forget about the number of links.Make sure that you are working daily on your event blog.
ok here is your answer:
Start updating the articles
Make sure that your backlinks are indexed or not
Try for more contextual linnks
Get some social signals
In the end,A few sitewide links.
