Manidipa: Hi Lasya, welcome to WPB360. Could you please share a bit about yourself?
Lasya: Hey, Manidipa! Thanks for having me on your prestigious portal and here is a little intro about me for our readers.
I’m Lasya, a professional blogger based in Vijayawada- India, and have been blogging since 2013. I started blogging as a passion, and soon it turned into my profession. I started blogging career with my first blog AllTop9.com and later started working on different blogs with a different niche.
On my personal front, I’m an all-rounder girl who is doing what she likes. I never give up on anything without getting success and satisfaction. I am a B.Tech Graduate, and I love travelling long distances, photography, Table Tennis, Dance, Psychology stuff and learning new things every day.
Manidipa: How did you first get into blogging?
Lasya: When I was perusing my B.Tech 2nd year, I met a friend named Imran Uddin on Facebook. He, my best friend introduced me about Blogging. As I am very curious in learning new stuff, started research about blogging. I got the stuff into my mind, and later started AllTop9 blog on my own and Google played a key role as a teacher.
Once I started Alltop9 website, my blogging journey started.
Manidipa: What was the reason to come up with the name AllTop9 & the niche of your blog?
Lasya: AllTop9 is just a random name. In the start, my concept is to publish the content regarding “All” the “Top” lists across the World. So, that way I choose AllTop. And, I like the number 9 (my birthday date is June 18=1+8=9) and thought of including it in the title. Finally, AllTop9 is formed.
Manidipa: Would you like to talk about your other new startups?
Lasya: I am currently working with my best friend Imran Uddin at his startup “All Tech Media Pvt. Ltd.” (I am one of the co-founder). And I don’t have any thoughts for my own startup as of now.
Manidipa: You are termed as an Adsense Goddess after being able to get 46 adsense approvals in a month? How did you reach this number?
When I am new to blogging, I heard that getting AdSense approval is a bit harder. So, I started learning about Google AdSense and began with my friend’s blogs. There my journey with AdSense started. I got the positive response with many blogs and learned many things about AdSense. In that way, I reached that number 46 in a month.
AdSense Goddess name is given by my fellow bloggers, who actually didn’t except that their blogs will get AdSense approval after 5 times of rejection. Then I started working on AdSense for the blogs where especially Google will reject their blogs for AdSense.
Manidipa: What according to you is the major reason of getting Adsense Banned?
Lasya: Everyone run behind ranking the blog and forget about AdSense. Google AdSense is also a big subject where everyone needs to spend their time to learn about it.
Main reason of getting AdSense banned is spamming your blog. Spamming is of different types like adding fraud scripts, clicking on their own ads, making others click on their ads, crossing terms and conditions of AdSense, etc. For more information, you can check out my blog Alltop9.com.
Manidipa: Being an internet marketer, how do you manage the different tasks associated?
Lasya: I am very passionate and good at handling different tasks at a time. I prioritize my works and will be working according to it.
Manidipa: How many hours do you work on an average?
Lasya: When I started blogging during my B.Tech, I used to manage both college and blogging. My timings are like, Morning 9am – 5pm College, Evening 6 pm – 2am (sometimes 5am) blogging. On an average, I used to work for 8-10 hours per day. On holidays I used to work 15 -16 hours.
At present, I am considering my health and working for 12 hours per day.
Manidipa: As a beginner, how did you overcome the early challenges in blogging?
- Never give up until I reach success and satisfaction
- Always learning new stuff and updating myself
- Rectifying my mistakes every day and learning what I want to be
- Working out with new strategies and creating a new trend in blogging
Manidipa: Who are your inspirations in blogging?
Lasya: Frankly, I never took anyone as my inspiration. Because, when I started my blogging journey, I myself struggled and learned all the stuff which I want through Google. I never came across anyone who is already successful in this field.
I used to work myself and I follow my own strategies. I like to learn things from each and every person. Because, everyone will be having their own experiences and outputs. So, I like to learn live experiences from beginners to the expert people.
Manidipa: Lasya, according to you, what are the major SEO trends and which ones do you follow for your own blog/s?
Lasya: Main and important strategy is Non-Copied content. As everyone says content is king. And yes, it is very important for each and every blog to increase authority, better ranking and attracting our readers.
I always concentrate on content and the style of expressing my views to my readers.
Apart from content, I use to focus on On Page Search Engine Optimization.
