So actually, if you are determined to put in the work, time, and dedication, I will guide you through the process of creating a blog for free on Google and make money from it.

To discover the best approach to creating a blog, I’ll advise you to check this post out. So with that being said, let’s dive into the step-by-step process of how to create a blog free on Google and earn money from it.
7 Steps To Create A Blog For Free On Google And Earn Money.
Step 1: Choose A Niche To Work On.
Choosing a niche to blog about is the number 1 most important thing to make any reasonable money online or determine your success or failure in blogging.
Your niche will determine how far your blog will go and the success of your blog. I see most beginners dabble into niches they know nothing about or have little to no interest in the niche.
So How Do You Pick A Good Niche That Will Make You Money?
First, ask yourself what are you really good at. What do you love doing the most? If you can answer that question immediately, then you won’t have any issue picking a niche.
Because if you blog about a topic you have no experience in or zero interest in, you’ll quit the blog just after a few articles you’ve struggled to write.
So let’s assume you have passion for anything business, relationships, movies, travels, health, etc. Any of that can be the best money-spinning niche for you.
I always advise you to blog about something you have an interest in or experience with. It goes a long way in keeping you put in the long run and also helps you dish out useful content to that set of audience.
Step 2: Come On With A Descriptive Name For Your Blog (Domain name)
Come up with a very descriptive name that tells your audience what your blog is all about at first glance.
This is very important also because the name of your blog is your blog identity. Make the name very short and memorable. So when people visit and leave your blog, they can easily remember the name and visit back.
And once it is, just grab it. If you can go for a Dotcom domain extension, that’ll be perfect. But if you can’t, then just get any other domain extensions you can afford.
Step 3: Setup Your Blog Using the Blogger.com Platform
Since you are trying to create a blog for free on Google and earn money from it, the best option is to use the blogger.com platform.
Blogger.com is a Google-owned platform that allows you to set up your blog for absolutely free forever.
With Blogger.com, you no longer need to worry about paying yearly hosting fees because Google will host your blog for you for free.
But although with the blogger.com platform, you don’t have full control over your blog because anything can happen to your blog.
You can wake up my faithful day and see that your blog has been deleted completely without no any prior notice.
So it has its own limitations, unlike a self-hosted WordPress blog where you pay for hosting and has full control over everything that concerns your blog.
But for beginners who don’t have any budget to get themselves a WordPress self-hosted blog, using blogger.com to create a free blog on Google is the best option.

Step 4: Do Proper Keyword Research.
Doing proper keyword research helps to determine which keywords are people in your niche typing on Google to search for content, product, or services in your niche.
If you are blogging for free without a budget to drive paid traffic, doing keyword research will help your blog come on Google search which will send people to click through your blog and visit.
How Do You Carry Out A Proper Keyword Research You May Ask?
Well, there are several hacks and techniques out there on how to do keyword research. Some are outdated methods while some involve getting expensive tools.
Don’t get me wrong they work, but as a beginner with no budget to invest in keyword research tools, going the free route is the best option which also works.
So start with, visit answerthepublic and type in your niche. What it will do is bring out what other people are asking in various forms just like the example in the image above.
This will give you some idea of what topics to look out for. So pick the keywords answerthepublic brought out and start typing them into the Google search bar.
Just below the Google search engine bar, you’ll see some more keyword suggestions Google is popping out.
Those are golden nuggets. I advise you to write the suggestions out one after the other. Also, you notice after typing in one of the keywords gotten from answerthepublic or from Google Auto Suggest and hit enter.
Just scroll down a bit, and you see a section called “People Also Ask” Those are pure keyword people are tying into the Google search engine.
For the final validation, to know if the keyword is worth writing about, you can use Ubersuggest or Google Keyword Planner to check their monthly search volume, competition level, etc.
You can see the Google Keyword planner in your Google Ads account under the settings section. Gather enough topics to write about before you go ahead to start writing your blog post.
Step 5: Start Writing Quality Blog Post
Writing a quality blog post is very important for your blog and can never be overemphasized.
The quality of your blog post will make your visitors last longer on your blog and also make them return in the future for more.
You want your post to be beneficial, original, and informative. Let your post answer their question, and solve the problems which they looking for online.
With this, be sure you are building a loyal base of readers which may lead to clicks and sales for you in the future.
I see some beginners just go about, copy content here and there, and smash it on their blog. They do this for some time and see that nothing is working, the next thing they quit.
Lols😂😂 , it’s funny. But there’s no way you can make progress posting plagiarized or spammy content on your blog.
So the better way to do it is to research the topic, read what others have written, and rewrite it in your own words and understanding by adding value to it.
Step 6: Promote Your Blog.
Once you’ve had a good amount of quality posts on your blog, let’s say about 20 posts to start with, start promoting your blog.
Start promoting your blog on all major social media, Forums, groups, etc. You can start by creating a Facebook, Instagram page, Pinterest Board, Joining several Forums, etc.
I don’t say you go about spamming social media with your links. There are ways to do that.
You can have your blog link shared in a Facebook group by answering a question asked or being helpful. Just make sure you add value before dropping your blog link.
Also, make sure you read group or forum rules before dropping your blog link so you don’t get into trouble.
