People search for information online. They want to know, “How to paint vintage furniture.” They are not interested in, “Today, I bought a red carpet that has floral designs.”
Generally speaking, creative writings and personal stories do not make you money on the internet, but informative contents do. However, if you know the tricks, you can also make your personal stories appealing to a large section of audience (more readers mean better visibility, thus more money).
In order to attract readers on your personal stories, you have to make your personal stories searchable on the search engines. When people are able to find your stories on search engines, they might be interested to read your stories.
So how do you make your personal stories searchable? The answer is use keywords and keyphrase on your title and the body. Let me illustrate this with some examples. You want to write about a street dog you have adopted, you can title you content “How to Adopt a Street Dog,” or “Adopting a Street Dog: Things You Should Know. Titles such as “I Adopted a Street Dog,” or “I Found Dog on the Street and I Brought it Home” will not work.
You want to share your experience of growing tomatoes, you can give the title some think like “Growing Tomatoes in Your Backyard,” or “How to Grow Tomatoes in Your Own Backyward.” Never ever write “I Planted Tomatoes,” or “I am Growing Tomatoes” even if your article primarily described your experience of growing tomatoes.
