Google is Going to Kill Blogging, But How?

Did I say, “Google is going to kill Blogging?”

Yes, you heard it right.

Google being the biggest and THE most loved search engine in the world is determined to provide accurate and quality content to end user. It comes up with various algorithms like Panada, Penguin and recently they launched EMD algo from time to time in this quest for quality content. Sadly for most of us, these algorithms has destroyed many sites and might continue to do so if we do not exercise due caution.


When Google had first launched its Panda update for refined search, many big sites were affected too besides the small time bloggers. That is because there are millions of websites which are constantly battling it to make it to the first page of Google.

Similarly,  the EMD algorithnm was also a Google initiative to kill low quality EMD site, but some big sites also got affected.

Why I took the example of these two big Google changes?

I mentioned these two algorithms  because you might be the victim of Google’s next update.

I was talking with one of my friends Sai who is a part time blogger. He pinged me and asked a simple question “Are you going to continue with full time blogging or not?” After I heard this question, I did not know what to say and how to react. That was because I love blogging and would not want it to happen to my blog as well.

Likewise for most of you reading this, you want to save your blog too. Though 95% of the youngsters in blogging are doing so just for the sake of some money, there are some exceptions. There are a few youngsters who have worked hard and dedicatedly and are putting in as many as ten hours a day on work.

Getting back to the point, let me tell you why I feel Google is going to kill blogging.


Why Google is going to kill blogging?

Google is bringing Author Rank Update

You must have heard that Google is going to launch something called Author rank and many pro bloggers are writing on this topic to spread more and more awareness.

If this is true, it will surely sound the death knell for many bloggers and this might be a very disappointing news for those bloggers who never do guest posting. Google is going to rank all authors according to their contribution to various sites as well their activeness on various comments. Google is going to trace all activities by the authors and see how seriously they are taking their blogging. Google will also make sure whether these bloggers are actually adding some value over the internet and if they are writing unique content besides a lot of other things.

Eventually, only those bloggers who are really adding value and are serious about blogging are going to survive .

How you can be on Safe Side?

The very first answer to this question is: Guest Blogging.

Yes, you will have to show your presence to Google. You will have to tell the Number One search engine that you are really, actually blogging seriously. You will have to improve your grammar because when Google crawls your article or even your comments on various blogs they count the grammar factor also.

So there are many things which you will you have to improve to protect yourself from this big algo update.

Involve 4 P’s in your Blogging

  • Patience

In every aspect of life, we need patience. Being patient is the key to success.

Blogging doesn’t only need time. It needs lots of time.

A dedicated blog takes at least 1.5 to 2 years to reach a level where he makes his presence felt in the eyes of Google.

So don’t consider this as quick rich scheme.

Make a proper schedule for you work and keep working on it diligently and with patience.

  • Perseverance

Perseverance means being consistent with working and always putting in your best effort.

Bloggers need to tell the world that they indeed are knowledgeable about the topic they write. Blogging needs continuity too. So, keep writing best stuff and expanding your community.

Never quitting is the basic fundamental of life and only those people who never quit get success eventually.

It has been rightly said that, “Winners never quit and Quitters never win”

  • Peace

Your mind must be peaceful.

Never be hasty in taking decisions and always consult experienced people.

Don’t care about what people are saying because this is going to distract you from blogging.

  • Presence

Make your presence in blogging world felt by interacting with other pro bloggers and being active in various communities and forums. Interact with other bloggers in commenting to give them satisfaction with your article.

No doubt, Google is going to Kill Blogging.

But only for those people who don’t deserve to be bloggers in the first place and do not provide any valuable content or are into blogging looking for some quick money.

Since you have spent a good 3-4 minutes reading this post, I am sure you are not one of those bloggers and you intend to take your blog to the greatest heights one day.

All the very best for blogging!

Do express your views and let me know how you feel about this.

    nice article, the most wonderful thing was that you didn’t got a backlink to your blog. 😉 That’s strange. Guest posting but not getting backlink.. o.O

  2. Vaibhav Mule says:

    It means that If Amit Agrawal of will not do guest posting then his blog will not survive well. Because, I never and unable to find any Guest Post by Amit Agarwal. ?

    • Kulwant Nagi says:

      I was like :O after reading your comment Vaibhav. Amit Sir don’t do guest posting on small blogs. You can find him on Wall Street Journal and other big websites very easily.

      And Labnol have already earned so much trust from Google that he need not to do such activities to rank well.

      Hope you got my point what I wanted to say here.

    True Man @kulwant nagi thnks 4 the wonderful post 🙂

  4. Dave Colgate says:

    Providing you are writing good quality articles that are shared and add value to the user which either informs, educates or entertains, Google is not going to ‘destroy’ you. You don’t necessarily HAVE to guest blog to be a successful blogger. It’s simply a method of promotion. I don’t think your article makes sense – Google is never going to kill blogging. If anything Google will promote blogging – as long as you’re producing quality content. The author rank situation shouldn’t scare bloggers – they should be very happy. Because it means that you as a blogger will personally be gaining recognition for your own writing on your blog about the topics you’re writing about.

    • Kulwant Nagi says:

      I agree with you Dave. But the fact is most of the newbies are scared with the term Author Rank and according them it will be difficult to survive in the blogging.

      Where the truth is totally opposite. Google took this decision to serve best quality content from the best quality sites. Blogging can never be killed as we are the person who are running the Internet. Without the bloggers Internet is nothing.

      Please have a look at my article again and read what I tried to explain here.

      Thanks for dropping your comment here.

    • rakesh kumar says:

      Really agree with you my dear friend. Author rank is all about the quality content provided by the author, not on how many sites author had been appeared. Paid post are so common now a days that even in $1 any body can insert his /her bio on a single post.

  5. Vikas Yadav says:

    No doubt, that many of the blogger can call it the Google is going to kill the blogging. but, I’m not agree with that title. It is because Google wants that each of the biggest search engine in the world i.e. Google want to provide better and better user experience to its user. Hence, it will keep updating the new algorithms Panda, Penguin, Disavow, Hummingbird.
