With the world of blogging continuing to grow in popularity in all areas, FHR decided to perform some in depth research into one of the more lucrative areas of blogging – travel. This area has been popular with bloggers, since the birth of the internet, as the ideal way to document travels, create a paper trail and keep in touch with family and friends.
Nowadays travel blogging has become a far more mainstream activity than just keeping loved ones informed, as good writing, advertising and SEO has made a well written blog a money making opportunity.
Individual bloggers were asked a series of questions about their hobby and passion, their knowledge of the internet and how they publish their work. We also researched further into how bloggers share their content and how they advertise and make money.
Revealing some interesting stats and ideas for anyone thinking of travelling around the world and making a spare bit of cash on the side!
The results are rather fascinating and reveal that the blogging world is more than clued up when it comes to making money, social sharing and optimizing for search engines. Some of the stand out facts are:
Most bloggers write 5 - 15 blog posts a month 59% of authors run multiple blogs 74% of authors regukarky read up on search and SEO 94% of authors monetize their blog(s) 76% of those use blogging as a sole source of income.
