When it comes to creating a successful website or blog, you really need to plan out why you are creating a site in the first place. Most people think it comes down to just creating content and putting it out there, but that’s only a minor detail in the whole scheme of things.
Here at BloggingTips, we go through new content creation ideas and case studies all the time. Today we are going to break down the concept of how to create a niche site around mobile spying apps. Why mobile spying you ask? Simply because it’s a hot niche right now, one that has a lot of advertiser money flowing around it and also an area without a ton of competition.
How to Blog about a Mobile Spy App
Mobile devices are the hottest thing right now and everyone is searching for new ways to do different things with their phones. It doesn’t matter if it’s an iPhone, Andriod or any other provide, there is a massive audience out there waiting to learn through your mobile focused tutorials.
A good example of this would be the concept of “jailbreaking” a phone. A quick search through Google Keyword Planner shows the following traffic numbers.
As you can see, just a quick glance at the keywords available shows a lot of opportunity. Now think about the scalability should you create tutorials on jailbreaking all devices and software updates. The benefit is also here that you could rank organically in the search results and pull in a decent amount of traffic from this as well.
In summary, billions of searches are made monthly for mobile related questions, topics and tutorials — it’s a huge market that is still in it’s infancy.
The Mobile Blog Monetization Play
Once your content is created, you won’t really need to mess around with new updates or adding a lot of new content to your site. Focus on your core topics and tutorials, then put in the time and effort to promote them effectively. After your content starts ranking in the search results or gets picked up in different mobile help forums and social media, you can then start focusing on different ways to monetize your content.
A great way to do this would be through the use of a relevant mobile application affiliate program. A perfect example of this would be a company like XNSPY, which also has an affiliate program that pays between 40-50% commission on all referred sales.
Since the aim of your blogs is to create awareness about mobile usage and applications, your blog must offer the reader an incentive to consider purchasing applications you recommend. At the same time, it must provide the reader necessary information about the product. Ideally, you must talk about the features the app offers, compare it with other similar apps, and allow the reader to willing choose your product over others. This is where marketing tone, choice of words, and approach matters. You don’t have to come out as pushy so that the reader must buy your product. Rather, be suggestive of it and allow the reader to opt for your product willingly.
To make the most out of your mobile application site, be sure to implement the following quick tips.
Follow SEO Guidelines
Following SEO guidelines in your writing is important. This will help Google detect your blogs and direct customers to your page. You must place the keywords in the right place within the content and you must use them in the right keyword density. Ideally, the keyword density must be between 1.5-2%.
Make Catchy Titles
To blog about the spying app, you must come up with creative and catchy titles. The headline is the first thing that either can grab the attention of the reader, or lose the readers’ interest.

Understand the Mobile Spying App
Before blogging about Xnspy or any mobile application you are going to review, you should first have a complete understanding about what the product does and how it provides value to your audience. A great way to do this would be through watching reviews on YouTube (like the one below), or even creating one of your own.
Focus on the Features of the App
Your blogs must talk about the different features that the app has. You have two choices; you can mention them with brief details in a list format, or you can make subheadings of each feature and discuss them. Because Google is sensitive about use of keywords, make sure you use the right keywords in a natural flow with the content.
At the same time, make sure that it doesn’t stand out as odd, and do not over use them in the blog. Keyword spamming can get your website into the bad books of Google, and you don’t want this to happen.
For the sake of an example, bloggers who write about XNSPY can focus on the following features and mention their benefits.
- Jailbreak and No-jailbreak editions
- Monitor SMS and iMessages
- Monitor IM Chats (WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, Facebook Messenger) etc.
- Monitor browser history
- Monitor GPS locations
- Use Geo-fencing
- Remote control
- Payment options
To improve your chances for ranking for multiple long tail keywordslong tail keywords, you can also plug each of these features into Google Keyword Planner to get a better idea of what people are currently searching for, then building content around those areas.
To offer the reader an easier understanding about mobile applications and how they work, you can insert screenshots of different “how to” instructions too. These help create self-help content for customers and does increase customer base because more people would want to use the app for its convenience.
A perfect example of how this is being done on other sites can be seen on HowWiki. They break down every process on their site with simple screenshots to keep the user engaged at all times.
When creating content for your site, links are key — however it’s not just money links and call to action links that are going to be important. Be sure to incorporate a few of the following link types into each of your articles.
- Internal links – Links to other content found on your site.
- Money links – The main call to action or affiliate link.
- Authority links – References to other well known and established sites.
Google wants to see sites that link to authority sources and have a mix of inbound/outbound links on their site.
Conclude with Call to Action
After offering the reader enough incentive to purchase your recommended mobile app, you need to conclude with a call to action. Try to keep it simple, less salesy, and optional.
The most important thing to remember is to keep your content valuable at all times. Thousands of people are going to be accessing your sites and reading your tutorials and guides. The last thing you want is for them to get to your site and then leave because it’s not offering what they were looking for.
Follow these tips to create a profitable mobile app tutorial and resource site, while also utilizing the power of long tail keywords and social media to send high quality traffic back to your site.
What Is Your Blog Post Publishing Frequency and Why?
From time to time, assess how frequently you publish blog posts. Ask yourself why? Sit. Wait for an honest answer.
I publish 4-5 blog posts daily. Sometimes I publish 6 posts. Why? I share oodles of helpful videos, podcasts and articles but on a deeper level, I intend to get my 124 eBooks in a billion hands or more. Yes; I wrote and self-published 124 bite-sized eBooks. Publishing 6 posts daily allows me to promote 6 different eBooks daily on my blog. I also publish 3 or more guest posts daily to share value and promote my eBooks in more spots. Note; that is 3 or more eBook promotions, in addition to all of my eBooks I promote on social media.
Promoting 124 eBooks daily is no joke. I needed to raise my vibe, practice writing and video and podcasting and get clear on upping my post frequency to drive traffic and business through an approach. I see my blog more as a high volume, blogging news portal, like CNN or Fox News, and less a blog for publishing weekly and leaving it at that. Hey; that is just me, though.
You may be different because all bloggers hold different intents and vibe at different frequencies. Imagine blogging once monthly. Today, you set an intent to publish 5 posts daily between videos, articles and podcasts. Seems foolish, right? Few humans make this quantum leap without putting in years of writing practice and also giving substantial attention and energy to energy management, or, mindset work. Never raise your blog post frequency from energies of fear and delusion; burnout and failure await.
But do bump up frequency if it feels fun, relaxing, prospering and generous to publish more frequently.
On the flip side, pull back on blog post frequency if your current schedule feels heavy, tiring, exhausting and overwhelming.
Only you know how frequently you post and why you post at that clip. You know the honest answer. Be straight with yourself.
Optimal Blog Post Frequency
Follow your fun and relaxation.
What feels really good and fun and relaxing, but maybe a bit uncomfortable, to you? Run with it. Daily? Awesome. Weekly? Cool. Twice daily? Great. One post, one day, and 3 posts, the following day? Why not? If readers enjoy your content they read your content, keeping up with what they can keep up with. Trust your gut.
I advise publishing at least weekly in most cases unless you publish a long form post monthly ranking well on Google, genuinely knocking folk’s socks off. Why? People forget you as you vanish from the stream for a month at a time. Blogs are news portals for your niche. News should not be published monthly. Weekly at a minimum works fine for news updates.
Making Money and Frequency
In my eBook:
I break down how you find buyers for your business online.
Pondering post frequency, money flows to frequent posters and less frequent posters. Everything money-wise depends on your clarity with receiving money and following your frequency strategy because your energy dictates your income. Feel good, and at peace, and relaxed, about your blog post frequency. Success will find you based on your money energy and life energy, independent of your blog post frequency.
Do the inner work and the outer results expand freely and easily over time.
Blogging Income Tip: How Do You Feel about Money?
As I promote my eBook:
I ponder one massive source of anxiety for most bloggers: money. Most of you grew up with money limiting beliefs. Money does not grow on trees. Money is not easy. Money is hard to get. Money is scarce. If you want money, get used to owning and facing each money fear because blogging full time requires you to work for free, generously, for a while, and no human with money fears works for free. All humans clinging to heavy money fears only work for pay. What is working for pay? Jobs. Working for someone allows you to get paid for every hour you work because being employees guarantees payment, per work, per your contract.
Guess what? Blogging is a different animal. Nobody gets paid to be an individual, business-owning blogger because blogging is a business. Business is about building something to boost skills and exposure to where your streams of income yield cash for you. Complete 180 from being an employee because you need face money fears, release fears, and proceed from a generous energy to gain skills and exposure enough to earn a full time income through your blog.
How do you feel about money? Does money feel scarce to you? Do you fear running out of money? Be honest guys. Being straight with yourself allows you to make money because before you make money through your blog, you need to face, feel and release money fears. Why? You never move into actions required to make money being burdened by the heavy fear of losing money, a yoke that saddles most of humanity.
I have noted how Gary Vaynerchuk did 2000 YouTube interviews before he began to get major media and TV coverage. He worked for free for 2000 interviews because he was not burdened by the terror of losing money, vibing abundance and generosity and trust. Most of humanity is so scared to lose all of their money that they never give one interview for free; these people work jobs to guarantee they get money for what they do work-wise, but sacrifice their fun and freedom in the process. You cannot live your dreams through blogging if you have no vision for the future and you cannot create a vision if you feel weighed down by the fear of money loss. How can you dream big dreams if you secretly feel terrified to lose it all? The fear of losing it all dominates your mind, body and actions so you will just work a job to get money and you will treat your blog casually, because your blog does not yield money, like your job.
Of course, your blog does not yield money because you vibe a poverty consciousness and poverty-vibing folks never do the generous giving – working for free, for a sustained period of time – to position themselves for success, a’la Gary Vee and his 2000 YouTube interviews. I have written and published nearly 1000 posts on Blogging Tips. Nobody paid me directly for writing and publishing these posts but the traffic and links and money I gained indirectly through these nearly 1000 posts helped me live a neat life. I began giving generously the moment I faced my money fears.
Expect to do the same if you want to live your dreams through blogging.
What Few Bloggers Understand
I live a pretty sexy life. I have circled the globe for the past eight years through blogging. Pretty cool, right?
But my blogging duties are seemingly mundane, not too sexy at all and in moments, quite boring. I genuinely love blogging. I have fun doing what I do. But I am also a human being experiencing a wide range of emotions on an hour to hour basis. Sometimes, I just want to go to sleep for a little bit because I feel tired and a bit bored with the blogging process. But if I intuitively know it is time to write a blog post I just write the blog post. In these moments, blogging feels boring and mundane and plain and not too sexy. But doing the seemingly mundane things in boring moments lays the foundation for living a spectacular dream life through blogging.
Few bloggers understand this basic fact of sometimes boring activities laying the foundation for a spectacular dream life. Most bloggers believe I do exciting, inspired and amazing things all day long to live an amazing life. This is 100% not true and nothing could be further from the fact. Blogging is fun for me most of the time but sometimes blogging feels boring. Even when blogging feels fun I am not doing anything earth-shattering or jaw-dropping anytime I write and publish blog posts and comment on blogs and promote one or all of my 100 plus ebooks. Does tapping a retweet button and sharing one of my eBooks on Twitter seem earth-shattering? Nope. Simple. East too. But few bloggers understand simple blogging activities lead to great blogging success.
Most bloggers believe you live your dreams through blogging by trying to knock the ball out of the park with viral blog posts and partnerships with the top bloggers on earth. Nope. You live your dreams by simply publishing helpful content, building friendships with top bloggers by being generous and asking for nothing, and by opening multiple streams of income from an abundant, trusting energy. Each of those steps is simple to put into action but sometimes taking each of those steps feel scary or highly uncomfortable. Nudge through the fear. Take the step. Simple, generous actions eventually lead to spectacular results because all meaningful blogging ventures begin with simple, generous actions. Do not believe top bloggers hit home runs everyday. We hit singles again and again and again and again for 10000 to 20000 hours until all those singles add up to something dazzling over the long haul.
Think in terms of tiny impressions made multiple times daily. I could have tried to write a viral guest post on this blog 3 years ago when I first published posts here. But I just chose to do a solid job writing a simple post some 900 times. Now I have written and published 900 + guest posts on this blog which means on a single blog alone I have 900 links or more, based on the ebooks of mine I link to as well. 900 + links leads up to something pretty sexy and spectacular but it was the simple, generous actions I took daily over 3 years of my life that led to the stunning long-term success. Blogging is doing simple things generously for hours daily for years of your life to build something special and meaningful.
Never believe that top bloggers hit home runs every day for a few weeks before they made it big. Anybody who makes it big does seemingly little things with love and generosity every single day over the course of years of their lives. Imagine 10000 to 20000 hours of doing simple things and you get an idea of what it takes to live a spectacular dream life through the medium of blogging.
