How to Start and Grow a Blogging Business in Pakistan?

To start a blogging business in Pakistan, the first thing you need to do is find a niche.

A niche is a smaller topic of a broader market, for instance, “Freelancing” is a smaller market within the broader “Online Business” market.

How to pick a blogging niche? Check Amazon’s e-commerce categories and see which ones interest you.

Amazon categories for blogging in Pakistan

So, for instance, you like to talk about “Automotive” niche/topic.

You can start an automotive blog and publish blog posts related to the topic.

You can promote Amazon’s products and earn affiliate commissions through the Amazon Associates program.

Picked your niche?

Just start a blog. It takes a few hundred to thousand Pakistani rupees to start a blog these days. (Depending on how long you want to invest in a hosting)

Hosting is where your blog’s content is stored and accessed from.

Pick a quality hosting service so that your website remains fast and up all the time.

I’d recommend Hostinger as it’s also affordable. Pick a suitable package (Preferably one with a free domain name), choose a domain name, and install WordPress on it.

Once you’ve installed WordPress on your site, log into your blog by going to “” and entering your login details (Set at the hosting panel).

That’s it. Your blog is ready.

Optimize WordPress Settings for SEO

Make sure your website is optimized for search engines.

Here’s a detailed video explaining everything in Urdu:

Find keywords that people are searching for on Google and other search engines.

You can use Google’s autocomplete and People Also Ask box to find them.

Another way to find these keywords is by using a free yet reliable tool like Google Keyword Planner.

Just enter your main keyword and it’ll bring you a list of related phrases you can write blog posts on.

You’d be amazed how well it responds to questions.

You can write full blog posts with ChatGPT, but make sure you proofread the content for facts and misinformation.

Continue creating great content and optimize it with the Rank Math free plugin for SEO.

I hope you liked the blog post and will start your first blog today.
