Guess what? I AM NOT DEAD!
My teachers kept me busy with my studies and that is probably the best excuse I can make for being inactive, right?
But no, I am going to take full responsibility and apologize for leaving the site on its own.
It’s been more than 2 years, lots of things are changed… (In SEO as well as in WordPress)
Why I was inactive?
Well, long story short… STUDIES!
I was investing most of my time to become a graduate for my parent’s interests, sounds horrific? Well, it does to me.
So, was I successful? No, I wasn’t… It is sad that I did my best and still it wasn’t for me.
Other than that, I was a bit upset after Google shut down a few of my favorite SEO techniques because of spamming.
Shit happens, right?
What is going on right now? Am I back?
Life is normal, back in Pakistan since March 2019. Started a couple of Offline businesses.
Opened up one of my own “Gaming Center” in Lahore, The Localhost Gaming. It was a dream of mine since childhood 🙂
It is not a big deal really, but it does fancy me.
The affiliate business is also great. A couple of sites doing great in ranking and monthly commissions, though google is kicking hard these days.
Other than that…
After all of that, I had plans for NichePie and to execute those plans, I had to come back.
I will keep the site updated from now on and will try my best to publish 2 articles every month.
What is new in SEO and WordPress?
Things have changed quite a lot.
Google Rankbrain and Gutenberg are probably the biggest changes happened in the past 2 years, which affected a niche site making and ranking procedure completely.
Google Rankbrain is the new addition in their algorithm which has changed the SEO with a massive hit.
Now the google bots study the behavior of page traffic and rank accordingly.
Now to Gutenberg, which is actually the new WordPress editor.
Gutenberg – Best or Worst thing ever happened to WordPress?
Killing the suspense, it is the best thing ever… At least for me!
Now before you ask me why, I will give you 3 simple points to stand my argument.
1. The block editor
Gutenberg works on block-based approach, which makes it easy to understand what’s going on and to move blocks (filled with content) up and down easily.
And since each block is different, you can make your content look good and structured by using different backgrounds and integrating other stuff.
In short, it does the stuff which was not possible before without using any page builder plugin like Elementor or Beaver Builder, though Gutenberg won’t slow down your site like those page builders.
2. Gutenberg dedicated plugins/extensions
A number of Gutenberg extensions are getting developed.
Yoast SEO, allows you to include schema-integrated FAQs and How-To Sections only in Gutenberg.
So, I suggest you include FAQs section in your affiliate buyer’s guides, to get google featured results like these.
3. Future of WordPress
As WordPress is now using the Gutenberg as its default editor, you can expect that there will be no longer any updates for the classic editor.
It is better to adopt this new block-based editor and learn how to do magic with it.
The classic editor helped the content to look better from the front end but at the backend, it was a mess, meanwhile, Gutenberg helps to understand the content from the backend as well.
Why move to Gutenberg for Affiliate Sites?
As I mentioned earlier, TO DO MAGIC!
Guess how good and professional your article will look if you open each product with such box and before you ask me anything, yes it is inspired by TheWireCutter.
Although it was possible before with the help of shortcode ultimate, Gutenberg has made it quite easier.
There are countless possibilities which I can’t cover in one article, so you can expect a few upcoming guides on Gutenberg and structuring article.
And of course, I am not going to teach you how to use Gutenberg, though you can take help from this brilliant guide.
